Thoughts on those pink-hatted marching women *UPDATED*

Pink-hatted marching womenHillary’s pink-hatted “nasty women” have had their moment. My leftist friends on Facebook are ecstatic.

Many said of their participation in local marches that they’re “with Hillary.” One used the march to shill for her obsessive claim that Big Oil and Big Tobacco own the federal government. It was they, not Putin, who elected Trump. Another, looking at the undoubted crowds that showed up, opined that this was proof that the vote was hacked. When it comes to basic logic, she doesn’t seem to understand that the same people who show up at these marches are also the same people who actually voted. Yet another spoke approvingly of a march in Oakland. To her, the size of the march and the nature of the signs (see below) meant that Trump will be unable to govern.

All, of course, as their pink-hatted heads attested, were offended that Trump is an old-fashioned guy who is open (and, indeed, vulgar) about his sexual passion for women. I mean, it’s bad enough that he’s unapologetically cis-gendered. It’s worse that he actually talks about sex in a “guy” way.

I should note here that I am in complete accord with the Canadian vlogger who, having watched the entire Billy Bush videotape, concluded that Trump did not boast about mauling women but, instead, made an admittedly vulgar, but otherwise non-specific, and probably completely accurate, wisecrack about what rich men can theoretically can away with. Aside from getting baited into somewhat vulgar badinage in a guys’ locker room kind of way, his behavior was impeccable.

As much as anything, the marchers seemed bound together by cognitive dissonance. For example, everyone on my Facebook feed was proud of the marchers’ slogan: “Love, not hate, makes America great.” Indeed, one friend heartily approved of marcher Wanda Brown’s comment about “all the love I saw out there.”

That happy rhyme, however, was belied by the loudest rhetoric and the hate-filled signs. Madonna drew cheers when she said loving things as “F**k you” and “I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House” (Hey, Secret Service! Did you hear that? Sounds like a threat to me.)

Ashley Judd also wowed the crowd when she read a poem that called Trump Hitler, claimed he had wet dreams about Ivanka, accused him of supporting the KKK, and sang a paean to women’s “pussies.” I don’t know about you, but when I hear that, I’m not feeling the love.

Many of the signs too were a whole lot closer to Judd’s and Madonna’s neurotic, hate-filled rhetoric as opposed to that that chipper, friendly slogan:

Posters from the pink-hatted women march on Washington

The entire march was an “intersectional” melange with feminists loudly advocating for Muslims, apparently unaware that the latter’s idea of feminism involves burqas and driving restrictions, and LGBT activists also siding with those same Muslims (including refugees), apparently unaware that homosexuality is a capital crime under Islam.

Typically for the Left, the real common denominator was abortion. As I figured out years ago, abortion is the Holy Grail for the Left. It is the one thing that ties white middle-class women to disparate groups such as Muslims (who hate those same women), black supremacists (who hate those same women), homosexuals (who hate breeders), and so on. Nancy Pelosi, the alleged Catholic, said it best when she insisted that abortion, especially late-term abortion (i.e., aborting a viable baby) is “sacred ground.”

At the end of it all, I’m actually at a loss to understand why those women are marching. It’s one thing if a movement arises, as the Tea Party did, in direct response to post-election legislation and executive action. In that case, the ballot box is unavailable in the immediate and relevant time frame, making street protests the only option. However, this march struck me as massive temper tantrum from the side that lost the election. Col. Kemp nailed it:

Color me . . . not pink, but unimpressed. Of course, I don’t matter. What matters is whether Trump and the Republicans in Congress care about these marchers and their tantrum. My guess is that Trump won’t care in the least. Moreover, I suspect that the Republicans in Congress, who finally have fearless leadership, might be able to close shut out the protesters and do the right thing. After all, that’s what Obama and his Congress did in 2009 when the Tea Party presented them with a legitimate grievance for which there was no ballot.

UPDATE: A perfect poster came my way:

    I am with you, quite unsure as to the nature of the march beyond it being mostly a progressive primal scream. That said, if Ashley and Madonna keep their own “vulgar” emoting up, they are going to create more Trump voters by 2020 than were at the march.

  • Jim O’Neil

    So, I guess the phrase; ‘Grab em by the hat!’ is entirely unacceptable now?

    • Danny Lemieux

      John Kerry still has his hat to this very day! I guess that’s why he was at the protest.

  • What is it with these people? If I had attended a Tea Party rally (and I have attended several) where speakers used this kind of language, I would have left. Of course, attendees at a Tea Party rally would never let it happen.

    A couple times a Leftie showed up at a TP rally, and we’d try to “convert” them. There was a lot of banter and a good time was had by all. I suspect that the reaction was different today in DC for anyone showing up with a MAGA hat.

    Aren’t those just Shrek costumes dyed pink?

  • Mitchell D Garnett

    I dunno but when none of the stuff they fear happens, they can now say it was their march that brought it about.

    • Heartlander

      Yikes! You may be right! UGH.

  • Charles Martel

    This is feel-good stuff, which, I’m sorry to say, is something that many white upper middle-class women get off on. It has little serious thought associated with it, as illustrated by their mindless recitation of petered-out cliches spewed by Hillary, Planned Parenthood, Vanity Fair, and Marxists/Leninists/Maoists.

    If men commit the error of practicing hyper-rational distancing from their emotions, women of this ilk do the opposite: They jettison reason, all the better to wallow in gooey, chocolate-covered pathos.

    Watching on tv today, heard one man who was marching with the women say that they were marching for equal pay. Where were these marchers for the last 8 years when their guy Obama was in the WH? He did nothing for them, yet they all gave him a pass.

    • Wolf Howling

      Sorry, but he is marching to get laid.

      • John Browne

        But you were too smart to fall for THAT… right? ^..^

        • Wolf Howling

          Lollllllll. I grew up after the 60’s protests, but some of my older friends in the military who would tell tales.

  • Danny Lemieux

    I dunno. I think the Women’s March was quite useful. I think that all good fathers and mothers would use it as an example, to show their sons exactly what kind of woman to run away from as quickly and over as many hills as possible.

    • Libby_CO

      Oh, I’ve already started inoculating my tween son against feminism. Explained the difference between wanting equality, while still recognizing inherent differences between the sexes vs. today’s hateful, mean-spirited feminists. They hate men, babes, families and pretty-much everything that is normal (yeah, not buying into the new “normal” that promotes deviance & demonizes traditional values & norms). So much negativity and unhappiness.

      • Heartlander

        Back in the ’80s, when I was a liberal yuppie in Houston, my best friend at work happened to be a sweet lesbian woman. At that time, I was a peace activist, spending all my free time going to talks, workshops and meetings. A frequent venue for these activities was the Houston Area Women’s Center, a place that I was surprised to find my lesbian friend assiduously avoided. When I asked her why, she replied that the place made her uncomfortable because all the women there seemed to hate three things that she didn’t hate at all: men, babies, and God.

  • I’ve been asking what Trump does that threatens women more than men.

    Oh, and apparently it’s sexist to say that your neighbors aren’t responsible for your contraception.

  • MichaelAdams

    Well, there was one Republican woman voter born at 0330 today, 22 January 2017, although she won’t be able to cast a ballot until 2035, driving her grandfather to the polls at the same time. Her name is Gloria Adams, and she is really cute, rather resembling said grandfather. F*** the rest of them! Gloria deo! (And yes, I am going to make constant use of her name in my praises.) My own private plan is for her to be the first Anglican Bishop of Arabia, but I’m quite aware: if you want to make God smile, tell Him your plans.

  • On air interview comments by marching woman when asked why they are there….

    “coming together and building community”

    “making friends, expanding my network, meeting new people”

    “come together and realize that you’re not alone”

    “we won the popular vote but lost the electoral college”

    “Stand firm against lawmakers who would seek to turn back the clock on women’s progress”

    “to secure women’s rights as human rights”

    “silently protesting trying to bring out my voice”

    “I’m marching to ensure we don’t roll back the clock on women’s rights and to empower women & girls to speak out & be heard. “

    “I’m marching because we deserve better”

    “because the future is female”

    A medical/psychological explanation for why LIB/PROG women are so HYSTERICAL. And they are hysterical on steroids! Yelling worn out cliches at the top of their shrill hysterical voices. And just Look at the men??? in attendance to further make my point! (From a previous post of mine)

    “A perfect reflection of what I have known for 59 years. Although my
    career was as a surgical sub-specialist, having done general medical
    practice in the early years, it was apparent to me that lib/prog men
    were for the most part premature ejaculators, who fell in the “Wham,
    Bam, Thank You M’am” category of lovers. The Kennedy boys were great
    examples, They do not understand that in the male/female relationship,
    it is normal for the male to desire to penetrate, and the female to
    desire to be the receptor of the penetration from a good, skillful and
    would want someone jumping on you who is a “Wham, Bam Thank You M’am”
    premature ejaculator who cared naught for your enjoyment of the

      My god!!! you just described the “white working-class male” to a T… and also a germane reason to support contraception! ^..^

    FYI – Women’s March was pro-muslim because its co-chair was Palestinian-American activist (with Hamas ties) Linda Sarsour, who successfully agitated to get muslim holidays recognized in NYC public schools. She also supports sharia law.

    I was at church yesterday with a bunch of women whose daughters and/or granddaughters were at the march. The consensus was that the hats were stupid and crudely named, and we couldn’t figure out what rights women lack. SIlly march to make women feel empowered, and as others have said, release a primal scream. Whatever.

      Surprised the Times would want this to see the light of day.

    They marched because of the 44th annual March for Life this Friday, 1/27. This year, Kellyanne Conway, the highest ranking woman in this administration, will speak at the March. AND the M4L has had hundreds of thousands of marchers year after year yet, it’s a blip on the radar to the press. With all the free publicity given to the protest yesterday, I hope you all hear about the March for Life on Friday. We’ll be there–again!

    And BTW–if you do see coverage, you will see HAPPY people. I don’t think there was much ‘love’ for humanity out there yesterday–more like a bunch of grumpy hippies and hippie wanna be’s. Those women hate our March for Life.

  • talgus

    as soon as protestors leave the protest area cleaner than it was when they arrived I will start listening. leaving your vile protest posters on the mall is not acceptable.

  • J K Brown

    I was confused for a while as to why the women were so proud to wear crotched vaginas on their head. It took a while for me to realize it was crocheted.

  • beefrank

    This ‘march’ was similar to the ‘occupy’ protests as a by-product of Soros and other progressive ‘daddy warbucks’. Like Hillary’s campaign, there was a myriad of messages which equate to a null message. Acts 19:32 (KJV) describes the anatomy of these public gatherings.
    “Some therefore cried one thing, and some another: for the assembly was
    confused; and the more part knew not wherefore they were come together.”

  • Danny Lemieux

    Well, all this makes about as much sense as a group of bikers marching for men’s rights by waving plastic sex toy penises in the air. The march was about one thing only – one last primal scream for abortion! But, seriously? They really want to be taken seriously with their self-referential scatological and vaginal fixations? Really?
