1. It’s not a women’s march. It’s a Democrat women’s march.
Some of the slogans, like “Pussy grabs back,” could apply women of any political persuasion. However, “My body, my choice” only applies to pro-choice women. There are plenty of pro-life women as well. Telling them to keep their opinions to themselves is literally mimicking the behavior of men from the 1600s.
The Democratic party’s favorite trick is to tell women and minorities that they are either Democrats or sellouts. But the fact is, there are plenty of women and minorities who are Libertarians, Republicans, Constitutionalists, Independents, and Greens.
The name “Women’s March” is literally designed to silence all women who disagree, of which, as this election shows, there are tens of millions.
2. Beware of “yes ladders.” Democrats start protests by chanting something everyone agrees with (e.g., “It’s our America too!”) and gradually build up to to something preposterous (e.g. “RAISE MY TAXES!”)
They did this with the Occupy Movement. A movement that started out as unhappiness with the D&R Wallstreet Bailout was duped into literally supporting Federal Employee Labor Unions at various protests.
If you hear a slogan you don’t like, I encourage you to yell out an opposing one.
3. Keep priorities in mind. Bombing foreigners is worse than locker room talk. So is the Drug War. So is the Patriot Act. The cynical purpose of many of these protests is to trick Democrats into believing that Barack Obama was some kind of saint, so that they will support whichever establishment drone they throw at you in 2020. It almost worked with Hillary Clinton, and there are plenty more establishment drones.
