Independent. Powerful. Women. Doing the political bidding of an uber-rich MAN??
Feminism is NOT what it used to be.
Gone are the days that Gloria Steinem popularized the line about a woman needing a man ‘like a fish needs a bicycle’.
You know that hardcore Right-Wing voice, the ‘New York Times’?
No wait. Didn’t they illegally publish Trump’s taxes? Right.
Scratch that ‘right-wing voice’ part. Either way, they actually DARED run a piece BLASTING the narrative that Saturday’s march was a ‘Grassroots’ effort.
In the pre-dawn darkness of today’s presidential inauguration day, I faced a choice, as a lifelong liberal feminist who voted for Donald Trump for president: lace up my pink Nike sneakers to step forward and take the DC Metro into the nation’s capital for the inauguration of America’s new president, or wait and go tomorrow to the after-party, dubbed the “Women’s March on Washington”?
The Guardian has touted the “Women’s March on Washington” as a “spontaneous” action for women’s rights. Another liberal media outlet, Vox, talks about the “huge, spontaneous groundswell” behind the march. On its website, organizers of the march are promoting their work as “a grassroots effort” with “independent” organizers. Even my local yoga studio, Beloved Yoga, is renting a bus and offering seats for $35. The march’s manifesto says magnificently, “The Rise of the Woman = The Rise of the Nation.”
It’s an idea that I, a liberal feminist, would embrace. But I know — and most of America knows — that the organizers of the march haven’t put into their manifesto: the march really isn’t a “women’s march.” It’s a march for women who are anti-Trump.
…To understand the march better, I stayed up through the nights this week, studying the funding, politics and talking points of the some 403 groups that are “partners” of the march. Is this a non-partisan “Women’s March”?
…By my draft research, which I’m opening up for crowd-sourcing on GoogleDocs, Soros has funded, or has close relationships with, at least 56 of the march’s “partners,” including “key partners” Planned Parenthood, which opposes Trump’s anti-abortion policy, and the National Resource Defense Council, which opposes Trump’s environmental policies. The other Soros ties with “Women’s March” organizations include the partisan MoveOn.org (which was fiercely pro-Clinton), the National Action Network (which has a former executive director lauded by Obama senior advisor Valerie Jarrett as “a leader of tomorrow” as a march co-chair and another official as “the head of logistics”). Other Soros grantees who are “partners” in the march are the American Civil Liberties Union, Center for Constitutional Rights, Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch. March organizers and the organizations identified here haven’t yet returned queries for comment. Read the full story: NYT
Soros is openly anti-Trump. He is OPENLY trying to use HUGE wealth to skew politics in his own image. The same man who feels no remorse for his days as a teenage Nazi sympathizer [so? Somebody else would have done it] … who collapsed economies for personal profit … has NO scruples against using his mountains of cash to corrode democracies and international politics. (USA included).
Soros, because of his millions has far more say in politics than his one vote would allow. He can silence or drown out the REAL voices of Americans by ASTROTURFING political movements.
Because wealthy donors can pay (ie: bribe) people to use THEIR voices to back HIS causes.
George Soros is the EMBODIMENT the swamp that We The People want to drain.
Should it be a surprise to anyone that he would bankroll an ongoing campaign to discredit Trump?
Doesn’t this explain why so many women from so many diverse causes came together in such a disjointed message where the only thing they REALLY seemed to fully agree on was Anti-Trump?
