Apparently women’s rights are under siege as a result of Donald Trump’s election – so much so that hundreds of thousands of women have turned out to march in Washington DC as well as major cities across the nation – and even internationally — for women’s reproductive rights (i.e. the right to abort baby girls (and boys) at any time) and wear knitted pink “pu**y hats.”The event in Washington D.C. was so well attended that apparently it was impossible to actually march — the streets were clogged along the route with so many women and “femme expressive” people.
In Washington, a panoply of show business luminaries stood up to testify in support, including Scarlett Johansson, Alicia Keyes, Cher and America Ferrera. One ultra surprise guest was the ever-evolving Madonna, who may find herself the subject of a Secret Service investigation after her off-the-cuff remarks.
As The Daily Mail reports, Her Madgesty took a defiant stand against Trump as she took to the podium, even telling the crowd she had thought a lot about ‘blowing up the White House’ but knew that it ‘wouldn’t change anything’.
The surprise guest, whose name was on the list of speakers for the event, asked the crowd: ‘Are you ready to shake up the world? Welcome to the revolution of love.’
‘To the rebellion, to our refusal as women to accept this new age of tyranny,’ she continued. ‘Where not just women are endangered but all marginalized people.’
‘Where being uniquely different right now might truly be considered a crime. ‘It took this this moment of darkness to wake us the f***k up,’ she exclaimed.Well, heck, y’all had a chance to get out in bigger numbers and vote, but you didn’t. But what exactly is “this new age of tyranny?”
You mean the tyranny of the left, who just last night smashed windows, destroyed storefronts and burned cars? That tyranny?The new age of tyranny that beats up people just for wearing Trump hats or t-shirts? That tyranny?
I don’t mean to insert myself into this story, but I (Michele Hickford) attended the inauguration. I bought a commemorative knit hat to wear, but only wore it inside the “safe” area because I was afraid to wear it out on the streets lest I become the target of anti-Trump anarchists. You mean that new age of tyranny?
It’s wonderful Americans are deciding to get motivated and march for something about which they feel strongly.
But thankfully, enough Americans got motivated in November and peacefully brought about the “change we can all believe in.”
