Women’s March not to be praised
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
