It is now the end of an error (i.e. the Obama Administration), and the Donald’s First One Hundred Days have begun. Protests did occur (as expected) as did some member of Congress deciding to boycott the inauguration. But the biggest event took place the day after the inauguration — the Women’s March on Washington.
This protest was not limited to Washington, D.C. Similar protests took place in major cities across America, and in other countries for that matter. And various celebrities have joined in on the march, including Ashley Judd, Scarlett Johansson, America Ferrera, and Madonna. Madonna took the spotlight when she stated in her speech that she gave a lot of thought to blowing up the White House. It is probably only a matter of time before the Secret Service pays her a visit. Because let’s face it, if someone who was not a celebrity said that, he or she would already be in jail.
So, just what are the Women’s Marches all about? First, they are angry that the Donald is now President due to him being a Republican, and they also consider him to be sexist and racist.
Second, since many of the marchers support abortion, the Women’s Marches were intended to coincide with the anniversary of Roe v. Wade (and not just the day after the inauguration). Hence, they fear a crackdown on Planned Parenthood, and on abortion in general.
Third, they are upset over the Democrats’ not taking a stand against the Donald. Of course, that is easier said than done, considering Republicans control both houses of Congress.
Fourth, they are upset over there not being enough women serving in Congress. Apparently they do not realize that elections are determined by the voters, not by some affirmative action policies.
Other things the marchers are upset about include the rights of the LGBT crowd, and Obamacare.
But instead of protesting the Trump Administration, maybe these marchers should focus their efforts on protesting in areas where women’s rights are being trampled on. The Muslim world would be the ideal place, considering how women are treated there (e.g. forced marriages, honor killings, domestic abuse).
They could also be protesting China’s policies on population control, which consists of forced abortions by the government, something that has led to a decrease in females within China. And in Russia, there is proposed legislation that will decriminalize domestic violence.
But don’t bother telling these protesters. They see the Donald as the problem.
