Women’s March not to be praised

Maryland Independent - - Community Forum -

In ref­er­ence to your opin­ion piece “Two very dif­fer­ent demon­stra­tions” re­gard­ing the “Women’s March on Wash­ing­ton” stat­ing that was as a “model for protests ev­ery­where” and should be praised. The event was pop­u­larly deemed a “Women’s March” in spite of it just re­ally be­ing an anti-Trump march. The protest used the guise of fem­i­nism to push what­ever agenda it had for­ward and in that process, it pro­fessed that it was for all women to par­tic­i­pate.

How­ever, the protest went out of its way to re­ject women who were pro-life. Plus, how could some­thing that claims to rep­re­sent all women ig­nore the fact that in 2016 Gen­eral Elec­tion 42 per­cent of women voted for Don­ald J. Trump. Ad­di­tion­ally, the event was not a model for “clean” and “peace­ful” protests; women were dressed in cos­tumes of fe­male gen­i­talia, they were wear­ing “pussy” hats and car­ry­ing signs that an­nounc­ing “Power to the p***y” and ERA.

There were also claims to vi­o­lence when Madonna stated in her Women’s March speech that she con­tem­plated “blow­ing up the White House.” Ash­ley Judd im­plied that Don­ald Trump had in­ces­tu­ous thoughts about his daugh­ter, Ivanka.

So, no, the so-called “Women’s March” was not a model for protests ev­ery­where and should not be praised and had no co­her­ent and in­tel­li­gent mes­sage. Mon­ser­rate Cruz, Wal­dorf
