Sarah Perry writes of the so-called Women’s March: “Everything The Women’s March Movement Wants You To Believe About It Is A Lie; the worldwide event had very little to do with uniting and defending women—and everything to do with promoting a progressive, radicalized agenda.”
Of course it did. How many un-thinking women were duped? How many people actually believed the mainstream media (i.e. fake news) spin that this was a noble cause we should all get behind? Ladies (and Gentlemen), it’s time to stop focusing so much on the feels and turn your brains on.
The intersectional feminism of the March wasn’t immediately visible. Straight, white women were tolerated, but certainly not exalted. The organizers wanted to make sure the march “[was] led or centered around women of color, or it will be a bunch of white women marching on Washington.” As a result, some feminists couldn’t help but feel that the real agenda of equality had been hijacked in favor of an illiberal liberalism.
This is the kind of double-speak at which the Left is so adept: where differences are celebrated, but only if they’re the right ones; where partisan mitosis continues until the only causes left to champion are those of the transgender, bisexual, Muslim illegal immigrant trying to get a late-term abortion.
Among those participating in the historic March were those whose lack of information on its actual agenda had profiteered the Left and its monolithic, make-no-concessions narrative. With enough pink and some language on social justice, the organizers had rightly predicted women adhering to a basic definition of “feminism”—the theory of equality of the sexes, regardless of their views on Sharia or the unborn—would clog the Metro stations with their signs.
These women have come to learn that their diverse and disordered march had been coordinated in large part by a capitalist pro-abort [Cecile Richards of PP], an Islamic misogynist [Linda Sarsour], and one very rich man [George Soros].
