Whether they were paid, George Soros induced or just that their heart was overpowering their brain, it was impressive the number of women and men who gathered in Washington D.C. from around the country for the Women’s March on Washington.
I listened carefully as the Chairwoman stated, on CNN, that they were not marching against anything but were marching for “something.” Being a college student in Washington D.C. during the turbulent sixties I can certainly understand protesting and marching for “something.”
“Stop the War!” “Hell no we won’t go!” “We won’t fight another rich man’s war!”
These slogans were clear. They were echoed by millions of protestors across the land. The message could be easily understood, whether you agreed or not. I watched, listened and waited carefully for the message to be delivered by the women of the March on Washington. I am still waiting. I heard famous movie and rock stars commiserate with the attendees about their oppressive female victimization, at the job place, as they cash their multi million dollar paychecks.
I saw signs demanding equality and was concerned that those lady sign holders weren’t allowed to vote in the last election. Perhaps they weren’t allowed to ride on public transportation with men. Maybe they are being denied seating in restaurants, not allowed to hold a mortgage, or maybe even being prevented from attending the college of their choice. I am not familiar with that part of the country that is apparently denying those women that equality.
I heard the repetitive cry about not taking away their right to “choose.” I was not aware that Rowe v. Wade had been repealed. However I have been a little out of sorts lately so I may have missed that decision.
There were so many messages that after awhile I was expecting to see the one for “Save the Whale.”
I would have been much more taken and impressed had they focused on one theme.
Perhaps if they had marched to free a transgender, Chelsea Manning (Bradley Manning), who blew the whistle on the United States for gunning down civilians in Baghdad. Maybe I would have felt the sixties juices flowing had they protested the historic eight years of continuous war and the thousands of innocent dead women and children. Maybe I could have gotten excited about them chanting that a woman and child had been promised that they could keep their doctor.
My ears would have perked up had they protested no jobs, staggering debt or worthless college degrees.
Unfortunately all the above is a very specific protest and would have required a March on Washington well before Donald Trump was sworn into office. It would have meant being concerned and ACTIVE while Barack Obama was still in office. Come to think of it there was a protest held. It was called the election of November 8th.
The March on Washington was simply a Kumbaya moment among hundreds of thousands of Hillary supporters who could not accept the fact that she had lost. As a child of the sixties I would say these women have a lot to learn about the art of protesting. The first thing is to actually decide what it is you are protesting and then make it clear to your listening audience.
Better luck next time.
