Everyone saw the giant Women’s March protest on Saturday, and we were all impressed by the size of it. Now, could someone please explain what it was supposed to be about? That you “spread love” through violent, eliminationist rhetoric? That you protest vulgar public references to women’s genitals by dressing up in public as women’s genitals? That Donald Trump has turned back the clock to the Middle Ages by stripping away women’s rights and to the 1940s by putting dissenters in concentration camps and gas chambers? That’s quite a lot to have done, considering he’d been in office all of 24 hours.

The participants seemed to be expressing overwhelming, unfocused rage that Hillary Clinton lost. So what’s their solution? Negate an open, legal election? If you want to change the Electoral College, you organize a movement for a Constitutional amendment, not a public meltdown. Madonna’s desire to “bomb the White House” sounded like a call for anarchy. Historically, women haven’t had it very well under the reign of anarchy. It should be noted that far from being oppressed and silenced, Madonna has become fabulously wealthy and world famous by doing and saying whatever she wanted for over 30 years, no matter whom it offended. (Although that “bomb the White House” thing might have taken it a bit too far: she hurriedly backpedaled, claiming it was meant “metaphorically,” after the Secret Service took notice.)

Trump was attacked for homophobia, even though he’s not a social conservative, his company doesn’t discriminate against gays, and he’s the first President ever to be in favor of same-sex marriage upon taking office. He was accused of taking away women’s rights and powers, even though his company was one of the first to put qualified women in important executive positions. He also credits the remarkable Kellyanne Conway (the first successful female presidential campaign manager) for his win, and he wants to give his very accomplished daughter Ivanka a key role in his Administration – to which the left has responded by demanding boycotts of her woman-owned business. Sounds awfully sexist to me.

Yes, it is true Trump made vulgar comments about sex when he thought he was speaking privately, something I condemned at the time and still won’t defend. But it’s a safe assumption that most of these marchers wanted to put someone back into the White House as “First Man” who actually did what Trump talked about, and install as President his wife, who covered for him by attacking his alleged female victims. And if talking in a vulgar fashion about women’s anatomy offends them that much, please explain the speakers (especially Ashley Judd, who seemed to be auditioning for a movie called “Rebel Without A Filter”) and many of the signs at Saturday’s rally. (FYI: to the protester carrying the sign that suggested women should have to pay for tampons when men pay for razors: We do pay for razors. If you know where I can get them for free, please tell me.)

Even Michael Moore, who built a very lucrative career on railing against automakers who export Michigan factory jobs overseas, showed up to start building a second lucrative career out of railing against the guy who’s bringing those jobs back to Michigan (and who is now President because the very people Moore claims to champion voted for him).

There really is a rising threat to women around the world in the form of radical Islamist groups who kidnap, enslave, rape and murder women and girls. These groups seized power largely due to President Obama’s foreign policy, which never drew any mass protest rallies from the left. Instead, we get attacks on Trump for wanting to carefully vet refugees from areas that are hotbeds of Islamic radicalism and to secure the US border (ironically, mirror rallies were held in many nations around the world that have strict immigration policies and fences and guards to secure their own borders).

The organizers also ignored the most infamous assault on women’s rights in the news over the past few years: in Germany, where millions of Middle Eastern refugees have been allowed free reign, women who report being assaulted, harassed and even raped are advised to keep quiet, dress more modestly and watch where they go. It seems like only recently that suggesting women were in any way responsible for their own sexual assaults was condemned as outrageous sexism. Now, it appears to be official government policy under Angela Merkel. But Trump’s promise to enforce the laws and secure the borders endangers women? Oooooooookay.

Roger L. Simon of PJ Media, who was equally baffled by what the point of all this was, finally decided that it was propaganda: a way for leftists and feminists who live in social media bubbles, talking only to one another and demonizing anyone whose opinions vary, to “continue opposition to the myth, not the reality, of a Trump administration for political purposes.” In other words, a way to keep the left’s rage at a boiling point until the next election. That would explain why pro-life feminists were told they weren’t welcome, and why, when the protest organizers declared that “This is what democracy looks like,” they dismissed the 42% of women who voted for Trump (one of whom commented online that she’d already taken part in a massive Women's March in November: “Millions of us marched to the polls and voted for Trump.”) If this is truly what pure democracy looks like, then I understand why the Founders gave us a republic instead.

Supporters claim this rally shows how big the rabid anti-Trump movement is and how the left is going to come back strong and win every future election. We’ve heard that “demography is destiny” theory before. It’s based on the sexist/racist belief that people vote with their skin color or genitals, not their brains. Personally, I think it resembles more the evolution of a religious cult, becoming more extreme but smaller as it drives away all but the most hardcore believers. I suspect that all it accomplished was to convince Trump voters, both male and female, that they were right, and possibly even convince some Hillary voters that they dodged a bullet.

But enough commentary. I don’t want to be accused of “mansplaining.”

    I agree with your assessment. As a woman I am embarrassed by the vulgarity of the March and would not want any of my family to b involved in any thing similar.
    I was raised in a religious family, fortunately, so it's hard to understand how people, not just women can act this way. So sad. I hope that our country can get back on track.????

    I feel that the American people should not have to pay for the clean up. Whoever organized this march and those that they know of, should have to clean the trash up or pay to have it cleaned up. I do believe littering is against the law, so pay up or be prosecuted. They need to take responsibility for their actions. Time to stop all this.

    The "Women's March" was a true display of liberal mental illness and rhetoric. Rest assured these so called "women" do not speak for American women. Madonna, Ashley Judd, and Miley Cyrus consider themselves role models? Thousands of young women across the world are not free but enslaved, denied an education or beaten into submission! Women living in America should be damn proud to be here with the advantages given to few women across the world. I prefer celebrities simply shut their mouths! They are not only out of touch with reality but just out of touch! Who cares what these people say? Obviously, the American people are sick of a mindless liberal agenda. No longer will American values be pushed aside by vulgar speaking women but replaced with elegance and grace. Thank you, Melania and Ivanka Trump!!

    Mr. Huckabee,
    Your essay was very well written. As a women I was embarrassed and disgusted with the Women's March. They did not speak for me, and certainly did not speak for all women in the United States of America. I consider myself a strong women that can think for myself, vote for who I choose, make my own choices in my life, and I am proud to be a women in the United States of America.

    Very well said!!! I found the rallies to be a bandstand for Hollywood feminists and vulgar in taste. Wearing genital costumes over their clean, designer clothes??? How proud they must have been for their children to make such a statement. Natalie Portman declared this the beginning of a Revolution. To what....to throw a temper tantrum because Hillary didn't win? Or to just protest that women's rights were questioned? In the end, the majority of them found it appropriate to litter our streets with their stomped on signs. Well done you bunch of idiots!

    Seems like this protest shows there are PLENTY of people who are willing to fund Planned Parenthood privately, and that's the way it should be. Let those women put their money where their mouth is, if it matters so much. Why should the entire American public be forced to support Planned Parenthood when millions of people despise what goes on inside those buildings? We don't want to be remotely involved in with the abortion holocaust. Planned Parenthood should be supported privately.

    A few things struck me about your comments
    1. You were not at the march so all of your impressions can from Audion visual reports second hand with their own perspectives. I was there. I am 61. Not a reckless vulgar sensless person. The average age in that crowd of people was close to 40 with an impressive number of ladies 75 to 80. You may focus on the trappings that are easy to trivialize, however, we focus on letting our new president know we want to have the same rights to make our personal decisions that you have. Yes we know that those decisions come with heavy responsibility but god placed them in our hands, we have carried them for thousands of years, they do not belong with government.
    2. I am surprised that a man in the divinity profession would not think long and hard about printing inflamatory remarks without getting to the heart of the matter. Sure oppose our point of view but present yours with a thoughtful and substantive aurgement. Respect the conversation.
    3. At your age you know that 5 million people are not all childish on the same day for an invalid reason. There has to be sometihing there. Stop playing to your base for profits and start truly reaching out to spread the word of kindness, grace, and respect. It's about bringing the land together. As you mentioned there were so many issues at the march you couldnt decide what it was about. You can certainly tell what my issue is but i spent that day listening to everyone and it made me a better person. I was in a crowd of well over 500,000 people and I did not witness one unkind behavior. On the ground the march was a completely different experience than you can imagine
    Good luck with your endevors.

    I was baffled by the protesters for throwing stuffs at policemen, reporters, "Trump supporters", and lit a car on fire. I thought a peaceful protest was what they said. As I thought it couldn't get any worse, I was disgusted at Ashley Judd! I WILL NEVER watch any of her movie again! And Madonna's F-bomb terrorist remarks!!! It's funny, the reasons behind this match was to 1) voice women equality... as a woman, I never thought I was treated unequal, as a minority, yes,!i do face discrimination once in a while, but so does every color of skin in the planet, just not all the time, and I rise above it, not making it an excuse for my failure. As for demeaning women as sex object, blame Hollywood, not the president, they are the one who made pictures n movie that are totally demoralizing a woma's worth. As for one black mom who said her son's black lives matter, blame the music wrappers n writers, all the lines they sang or wrapped are about sex n drugs and made women into sexual objects. Blame The Obamas for bringing those wrappers n singers to the White House to celebrate their talent n encourage them!! So don't go to Washington n March blaming President Trump! Go look for the source n blame them!!! Oh and one more which is my Achilles, the jobless jobs that u don't have, blame Obama for letting people into the country like flies, to take away our jobs. My family feel the direct impact of his action, he let Pepsi's CEO have the freedom to tag team visas. one group comes when another group's visa expired go back to their country!!! The result: all Americans lost our jobs!!! My husband, his boss, and his boss's boss!!! Now the Whole Pepsi corporate building are full of visa workers! So to fix it, I voted for President Trump!!! Not Hillary!!! Because he will get the jobs back for American!!!

    I can't wait for Pres Trump to succeed so I can gloat. I am usually not a gloater, but I will do so in this case!!!!

Im from Arkansas...lived there 3o years. Clintons were in office when my children were little...then you became govenor. My husband,daughter,grandaughter and I viseted the govenors mansion when you hosted a veterans day cookout. I still have the picture of you taken with my daughter and grandaughter. My husband Robert Burns worked closely with Tim and Asa to get VA Satalight Clinic in Mountain Home. He passed on in 1999 and my daughter and Imoved to Springfield MO.

    This was organized by a Muslim woman. They are testing women in America to see if they will join even if there is no cause. They are trying to teach American women to riot in the streets bc rioting is a way of life for them. That is all they know is mob rule mentality and they are bringing it to our cities! Wake up America!

    I am The Deplorable Woman who deplores The Nasty Woman degrading her gender. The Nasty Woman speaks contempt for her own body in misogynistic hateful, vile manner. The Nasty Woman doesn't accept God's blessings of ovulation as a Gift to bear Children of Jews, Christians, Muslims, etc in the color of BlacK, White or Brown. She believes the gift to be a curse. The Nasty Woman condemns Viagra for not being taxed but fails to mention Birth Control Pills are not taxed either. The Nasty Woman does not understand buying hygiene products is not any different than buying toilet paper. The Nasty Woman does not mention Women use Rogaine. .....This is part of my letter to Ashley Judd on her fb page. I also have it on mine. It is too long to post here.

    According to an e-letter I received today from author Karen Kingsbury, "Yesterday, was the 44th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. Since then 60 million babies have been killed."

    60 million. Let's say that just one-third of that number would have been female. Yes, 20 million.

    Twenty million is ten times the number of women who marched this past weekend because they are oppressed as they live in the best and most blessed country ever.

    No, none of these oppressed women marched for those embryos who would have become young ladies, yes, women, who truly had no voice. Killed, murdered from the worst of bullying situations.

    Dear Jesus, have mercy on us all.

    I agree with your article except for the following. Trump is not "the first president ever to be in favor of same-sex marriage upon taking office." Trump is for traditional marriage between a man and a woman... Always has been! And you mentioned Pro-life feminist in the 8th paragraph. Did you mean Pro-choice feminists? Seems to me a Pro-life feminist is a bit of an oxymoron.

    Mr Huckabee,
    I think most of those people were out of their minds. And I do not understand how we have turned into a Nation of Sissy La La's who need safe places and binkys. We are supposed to be Americans', strong, independent, self reliant and have a voice to stop abuse and injustice.

    What the hell happened ? That women run around being incredibly vulgar and having no self respect or dignity, and men who are led around by their noses, and degraded for being men.
    Has everyone lost the ability to be objective and see how ridiculous their behaviors are ?

    Really I wish people would just go home and take a Valium or smoke a joint and calm down.

    We are America and we need to take back our pride and independence and stop being dependent on what we were able to do just fine on our own.
    We need to change as a Country because we have let ourselves be almost destroyed by convenience and greed.

    Now is the time for major changes and time to take our country back and I understand change is scary and uncertain but no matter our religion or spiritual beliefs or even beliefs in Science alone, we need to work hard, speak in a way that is logical, and have faith and believe we can become United again.

    And please if you can not find common ground somewhere and become involved in rebuilding our Country then please do not be part of the problem, We need solutions, no more professional victims and temper tantrums.

    Thank you.

    Mr. Huckabee - when I want the TRUTH and rationale about a topic - I always go to you !! I as a woman, a decent woman, unlike the vulgar display I would occasionally glance at on the ONLY networks that gave it unwarranted merit and publicity, have had ZERO taken away. Nor will I. I am NO WAY in agreement with what they spewed. I listened and wondered : are they possibly auditioning for some DECADES old movie scenario. Haven't most of those rights been granted.... And the lady on Tucker Carlson tonight actually said "pro life women" were welcome. Well, on Face book - a pro life lady was there and approached very aggressively from the marchers. One lady went so far as to set the pro life lady's hair on fire with a lighter !! It's on video !!! And thanks to a gentleman standing there - he put it out because she did not know her hair was beginning to burn !!! I saw the smoke. This could have gone terribly bad. However, AFTER being caught on video by cell phone - the fire starter apologized. My question is - if no one had stepped in, would this peaceful "Woman Marcher" put it out or just let it go as her friends laughed !! Now - were these women actually peaceful and all about women's rights ? Or simply an Anti-Trump march? Another thing that makes me angry - they just dropped their filthy worded and pictorial signs and left them for someone else to clean up. Which by the way, a few Trump supporters stepped up and cleaned up this "Peaceful / Tolerant" bunch of protesters filthy mess.....
    I would like to see a city by city / churchs and or stadius filled with good decent women of Faith and let THE REST OF THE WOMEN be heard. I assure you - there would be no vulgarity and we would leave no mess. Just an honest TRUE meaning of "Love trumps Hate". That slogan is wasted on that group.
    Thanks.....and I would like to sit down to lunch and actually talk. I know you were once a pastor. My loving pastor died many years ago. Need to talk to one - I think in comparison to Rev. John Paul Jones of Huntsville, Texas - you stack up pretty close. Stay with us sir ! We need you.
    Sincerely
    Molly Currie

    This is what I wrote today..it's got its detractors ..but mostly positive. You wrote what was on my mind
    So this has bothered me when I first saw the words and I keep seeing it.
    Why are the Women's March protestors called brave? It implies that those who weren't there are not. Brave for walking?
    Brave is daring to go where the crowd does not go
    Brave is daring to speak your mind.
    Brave is a single mother trying to make it.
    Brave is a woman who chooses to stay home and be the caretaker.
    Brave is the woman that works outside of the home and follows her heart--or follows the needs of the family.
    Brave is the woman that sits by her child's grave and doesn't scream in the pain.
    Brave is the woman that gives her up child for adoption
    Brave is the woman that has the strength to leave an abusive relationship.
    Brave is the woman that yearns for a child but does not get that--and still is smiling at her friends that do.
    Brave is the woman that must live without her soulmate
    Brave is the woman that gets up at night to work for someone else.
    Brave is the woman that faces her challenges.
    Brave is not the spewing of hatred from people in show business.

    I guess I am more suited for jokes and Bible verses--but this bothered me too much.

    This march was not just about Trump. We have had many months of his rhetoric and what he plans to do. This also includes many of the GOP that have made their actions known. This march was a way we can make a statement to those in the government that we, as women , are a very strong force and will not be dismissed. Mr. Trump is very rude and a very negative force in his tweets and attacks on people the might not agree with him. Others were marching against many of the cabinet members that he has chosen that are out spokenly racists, and against the american worker. I, myself and most of my family that are teachers, are very concerned about the lack of background of Ms DeVos . Donating money ,whether in her home state or for Trumps campaign , does not qualify her. Others were marching for civil rights and human rights for all citizens ; Including our Muslim neighbors and my lesbian cousin or transgender friend. And yes, some chose graphic ways to bring their concern for retaining women`s rights. Right to obtain reasonably priced birth control or Pap smears or other tests. By removing funding for Planned Parenthood they will lose these thing and the removal of the AFA there will be even less care for women especially for single mothers that are barely getting by now. Many women were marching to say that the earth is important to us and we care that the clear air act is being attack to be replaced by big business pollution. As you can see there were many concerns by the women. We just ask the those in power take into consideration our concerns. For example, today surrounded by Men he signed an Anti-Abortion executive order. Where were the women? My main concern and worry is Social Security and Medicare. We are retired and depend on these 2 things. Just a word about privatizing Social Security. The company that my husband worked for payed a percentage pay back and only 30% of the workers took part. Do you really think people will save for their retirement if it is their responsibility. I think there are many that would not be so concerned if we felt that we could trust Mr. Trump but he tells lie after lie and denies it even when there is picture proof. We are scared and we are here watching and knowing that the next election is only 2 years away.

    The protesters have no solid message they were just protesting everything. They made no sense. When people like Madonna make comments like she did the secret service should have arrested her for terroristic threats against the president. If it were anyone else they would be in jail and looking for a good attorney.

Apparently they are all victims of some sort of imagined discrimination. There 25 years of life on this plant have been a burden. God, seriously please help us all! That is what they bring to the table of life, victimized babies.

    I also wondered what the purpose of this march was and came to the same conclusion-hate and angry feelings because Hillary lost. I am ashamed of these people who do not know about having no rights. I am 74 years of age and when I went to work I earned $200 a month less than my male co-worker and was told it was because he had a family to support. When my husband and I went to get a loan to buy a house my salary was not counted toward the total because I might get pregnant. The banker was allowed to question me about birth control and other personal things. That was part of the reason for the marches and demonstrations for equal rights so any years ago. These women need to thank others for their rights and help some of the people in their own towns who need help.

    our church Sunday, our preacher had a sermon about pride. Pride is praised and encouraged by the evil doers. Especially the actors and actresses, for example. Gay and Lesbian pride, pride in getting drunk, pride in nudity, pride in using cuss words, pride in protesting with destruction. Pride in killing babies, just to satisfy our own pride. Pride in our wealth, (we are nothing unless we are rich). Pride in how big and expensive our mansions are, and thinking we are better than those that don't. He didn't say all of this, but it is what the sermon was about. We are to humble ourselves before God, and give him credit for all that we have. God gave us everything that we have, including our looks, our brains, our abilities, and possessions. It isn't a sin or prideful to have any of these things, but it is if we say it was of our own doing, and thinking we are better than anyone else. This is what most of the people in the world think and have been taught by social media, and society. And what most of have problems with. Pride! This is what is dividing our country

    Hi Mr. Huckabee, I agree with your analysis of The March. IF they were trying to take up for the supressed and abused women world wide, that point did not come across from the speaches televised. Posts that I have read claim they are trying to help women who are single moms working two jobs to support their kids. They do not make enough to get health care, put food on the table, get decent housing, advanced education to better themselves and give a better life to their kids. The financially oppressed with no hope. I agree with that focus. Those women deserve a break and a voice. BUT I didn't get that from what I saw and heard from The March. If that is what they are trying to accomplish they need a better organized demonstration that would say that loud and clear. Women didn't get the vote by foul mouthed threatening speaches wearing vaginas on their heads and walking down the streets of DC bare breasted. And did you see the sign that said women want the same rights that guns have? Wow, be a cold day in Haties when i want to be treated like a man treats a gun. No thanks. These people need to get a grip and focus on what matters. If they had taken the time to listen to President Trump's speach, i believe he addressed all oppressed people in America. I think that includes male, female, and every ethnicity, religion, and square mile of the USA.

    Love your assessment and Mr. Simon hit the nail right on the head! I was absolutely horrified by the terrible things Ashley Judd said. Here I thought the women's march was going to be about promoting the better enforcement of women's equal rights (which we already have). Turns out it was just about a bunch of women who want everyone else to pay for their abortions and a bunch of Hillary supporters who are sore losers.

    Liberalism has reigned for the last eight years. Do not think they will easily give that up! During Obama's time in the whitehouse, Planned Parenthood started receiving government funding for abortions, gay marriage became the law of the land. Iran, the most evil empire in the world got funded to continue to build their nuclear arsenal! Satan does not give up easily! Donald Trump does not seemed to be phased by it all, he is pressing onward. I think those that are against the things Obama instituted are fortunate to have Trump, a real leader in there! Praise God, we need a pit bull!

    In my opinion saying that Trump is in favor of same sex marriage is not properly stated. I think he may not favor but as president of all, accepts that there are people in America who choose that lifestyle. I for one, do not approve of same sex marriage but I will always treat those who choose same sex marriage as individuals worthy of friendship and respect.

    This march was organized by Planned Parenthood and they were marching for abortion rights - Plus they have already planned a much larger march for April 15th - they are angry because they don't know how to accept "We lost" and very Entitled - I am sick and tired of my democratic friends who are offended non stop posts on FB - Don't know how to stop this - They are totally out of control.

    First of all, the speakers they had seemed to demand Respect, but they gave none, made nasty and lude remarks I understand with children around. Like these women have never made lude remarks about men in private, and among close girlfriends?? Give me a break! Those same women use the F word loosely! Yet demand respect. I was ashamed for women all over the world actually for their behavior. Trump took responsibility for his remarks. Respect starts at home, they need to first seek that in their young teens.

  • Connie Hogan

    01/23/2017 08:01 PM

    Yes, I too wonder what the point of the march was, other than to vent. I would ask them what are they doing to make lives better for those less fortunate. How much money could have been raised had they donated the money it cost them to march to provide food for the poor?

    I want to thank Michelle Hanken for her service.

    What I saw on TV, and on Fox News made me ashamed of being a woman. Why were little children there with the vulgar signs and the other outrageous outfits ?? The high profiled speakers and the language that was coming out of their mouths was so gross. I never did figure out what they were marching for. They have more rights than many other nations, more freedoms, and the right to kill their babies. So what is left?? I just pray God Will Keep Blessing our country, God Bless Our President Donald J. Tromp..

    Mike,

    Thanks for your insight. I agree 100% with what you wrote and am embarrassed for our country in the sight of other nations who must look at us like we're a bunch of looney-tunes (which might just be appropriate in some cases). The events of last weekend really showed me the true colors of many celebrities that before then, I sort of appreciated their work. However, after hearing the hate speech that I heard from many of them, it showed me that their views go far beyond just a polite disagreement politics-wise, which I can handle. It showed me their true inner selves and hate for all that is right and decent and Biblical in America. They really reduced themselves in my eyes and so now I know who in both music and movies I will avoid paying any money to see. He's not perfect, but Donald Trump is our President, I stand with him and America, and as long as he stays true to Israel and Biblical principles and does things that bring America back to prosperity and respect, I always will. Have a great day!

Everyone saw the giant Women’s March protest on Saturday, and we were all impressed by the size of it. Now, could someone please explain what it was supposed to be about? That you “spread love” through violent, eliminationist rhetoric? That you protest vulgar public references to women’s genitals by dressing up in public as women’s genitals? That Donald Trump has turned back the clock to the Middle Ages by stripping away women’s rights and to the 1940s by putting dissenters in concentration camps and gas chambers? That’s quite a lot to have done, considering he’d been in office all of 24 hours.

The participants seemed to be expressing overwhelming, unfocused rage that Hillary Clinton lost. So what’s their solution? Negate an open, legal election? If you want to change the Electoral College, you organize a movement for a Constitutional amendment, not a public meltdown. Madonna’s desire to “bomb the White House” sounded like a call for anarchy. Historically, women haven’t had it very well under the reign of anarchy. It should be noted that far from being oppressed and silenced, Madonna has become fabulously wealthy and world famous by doing and saying whatever she wanted for over 30 years, no matter whom it offended. (Although that “bomb the White House” thing might have taken it a bit too far: she hurriedly backpedaled, claiming it was meant “metaphorically,” after the Secret Service took notice.)

Trump was attacked for homophobia, even though he’s not a social conservative, his company doesn’t discriminate against gays, and he’s the first President ever to be in favor of same-sex marriage upon taking office. He was accused of taking away women’s rights and powers, even though his company was one of the first to put qualified women in important executive positions. He also credits the remarkable Kellyanne Conway (the first successful female presidential campaign manager) for his win, and he wants to give his very accomplished daughter Ivanka a key role in his Administration – to which the left has responded by demanding boycotts of her woman-owned business. Sounds awfully sexist to me.

Yes, it is true Trump made vulgar comments about sex when he thought he was speaking privately, something I condemned at the time and still won’t defend. But it’s a safe assumption that most of these marchers wanted to put someone back into the White House as “First Man” who actually did what Trump talked about, and install as President his wife, who covered for him by attacking his alleged female victims. And if talking in a vulgar fashion about women’s anatomy offends them that much, please explain the speakers (especially Ashley Judd, who seemed to be auditioning for a movie called “Rebel Without A Filter”) and many of the signs at Saturday’s rally. (FYI: to the protester carrying the sign that suggested women should have to pay for tampons when men pay for razors: We do pay for razors. If you know where I can get them for free, please tell me.)

Even Michael Moore, who built a very lucrative career on railing against automakers who export Michigan factory jobs overseas, showed up to start building a second lucrative career out of railing against the guy who’s bringing those jobs back to Michigan (and who is now President because the very people Moore claims to champion voted for him).

There really is a rising threat to women around the world in the form of radical Islamist groups who kidnap, enslave, rape and murder women and girls. These groups seized power largely due to President Obama’s foreign policy, which never drew any mass protest rallies from the left. Instead, we get attacks on Trump for wanting to carefully vet refugees from areas that are hotbeds of Islamic radicalism and to secure the US border (ironically, mirror rallies were held in many nations around the world that have strict immigration policies and fences and guards to secure their own borders).

The organizers also ignored the most infamous assault on women’s rights in the news over the past few years: in Germany, where millions of Middle Eastern refugees have been allowed free reign, women who report being assaulted, harassed and even raped are advised to keep quiet, dress more modestly and watch where they go. It seems like only recently that suggesting women were in any way responsible for their own sexual assaults was condemned as outrageous sexism. Now, it appears to be official government policy under Angela Merkel. But Trump’s promise to enforce the laws and secure the borders endangers women? Oooooooookay.

Roger L. Simon of PJ Media, who was equally baffled by what the point of all this was, finally decided that it was propaganda: a way for leftists and feminists who live in social media bubbles, talking only to one another and demonizing anyone whose opinions vary, to “continue opposition to the myth, not the reality, of a Trump administration for political purposes.” In other words, a way to keep the left’s rage at a boiling point until the next election. That would explain why pro-life feminists were told they weren’t welcome, and why, when the protest organizers declared that “This is what democracy looks like,” they dismissed the 42% of women who voted for Trump (one of whom commented online that she’d already taken part in a massive Women's March in November: “Millions of us marched to the polls and voted for Trump.”) If this is truly what pure democracy looks like, then I understand why the Founders gave us a republic instead.

Supporters claim this rally shows how big the rabid anti-Trump movement is and how the left is going to come back strong and win every future election. We’ve heard that “demography is destiny” theory before. It’s based on the sexist/racist belief that people vote with their skin color or genitals, not their brains. Personally, I think it resembles more the evolution of a religious cult, becoming more extreme but smaller as it drives away all but the most hardcore believers. I suspect that all it accomplished was to convince Trump voters, both male and female, that they were right, and possibly even convince some Hillary voters that they dodged a bullet.

But enough commentary. I don’t want to be accused of “mansplaining.”

    I agree with your assessment. As a woman I am embarrassed by the vulgarity of the March and would not want any of my family to b involved in any thing similar.
    I was raised in a religious family, fortunately, so it's hard to understand how people, not just women can act this way. So sad. I hope that our country can get back on track.????

    I feel that the American people should not have to pay for the clean up. Whoever organized this march and those that they know of, should have to clean the trash up or pay to have it cleaned up. I do believe littering is against the law, so pay up or be prosecuted. They need to take responsibility for their actions. Time to stop all this.

    The "Women's March" was a true display of liberal mental illness and rhetoric. Rest assured these so called "women" do not speak for American women. Madonna, Ashley Judd, and Miley Cyrus consider themselves role models? Thousands of young women across the world are not free but enslaved, denied an education or beaten into submission! Women living in America should be damn proud to be here with the advantages given to few women across the world. I prefer celebrities simply shut their mouths! They are not only out of touch with reality but just out of touch! Who cares what these people say? Obviously, the American people are sick of a mindless liberal agenda. No longer will American values be pushed aside by vulgar speaking women but replaced with elegance and grace. Thank you, Melania and Ivanka Trump!!

    Mr. Huckabee,
    Your essay was very well written. As a women I was embarrassed and disgusted with the Women's March. They did not speak for me, and certainly did not speak for all women in the United States of America. I consider myself a strong women that can think for myself, vote for who I choose, make my own choices in my life, and I am proud to be a women in the United States of America.

    Very well said!!! I found the rallies to be a bandstand for Hollywood feminists and vulgar in taste. Wearing genital costumes over their clean, designer clothes??? How proud they must have been for their children to make such a statement. Natalie Portman declared this the beginning of a Revolution. To what....to throw a temper tantrum because Hillary didn't win? Or to just protest that women's rights were questioned? In the end, the majority of them found it appropriate to litter our streets with their stomped on signs. Well done you bunch of idiots!

    Seems like this protest shows there are PLENTY of people who are willing to fund Planned Parenthood privately, and that's the way it should be. Let those women put their money where their mouth is, if it matters so much. Why should the entire American public be forced to support Planned Parenthood when millions of people despise what goes on inside those buildings? We don't want to be remotely involved in with the abortion holocaust. Planned Parenthood should be supported privately.

    A few things struck me about your comments
    1. You were not at the march so all of your impressions can from Audion visual reports second hand with their own perspectives. I was there. I am 61. Not a reckless vulgar sensless person. The average age in that crowd of people was close to 40 with an impressive number of ladies 75 to 80. You may focus on the trappings that are easy to trivialize, however, we focus on letting our new president know we want to have the same rights to make our personal decisions that you have. Yes we know that those decisions come with heavy responsibility but god placed them in our hands, we have carried them for thousands of years, they do not belong with government.
    2. I am surprised that a man in the divinity profession would not think long and hard about printing inflamatory remarks without getting to the heart of the matter. Sure oppose our point of view but present yours with a thoughtful and substantive aurgement. Respect the conversation.
    3. At your age you know that 5 million people are not all childish on the same day for an invalid reason. There has to be sometihing there. Stop playing to your base for profits and start truly reaching out to spread the word of kindness, grace, and respect. It's about bringing the land together. As you mentioned there were so many issues at the march you couldnt decide what it was about. You can certainly tell what my issue is but i spent that day listening to everyone and it made me a better person. I was in a crowd of well over 500,000 people and I did not witness one unkind behavior. On the ground the march was a completely different experience than you can imagine
    Good luck with your endevors.

    I was baffled by the protesters for throwing stuffs at policemen, reporters, "Trump supporters", and lit a car on fire. I thought a peaceful protest was what they said. As I thought it couldn't get any worse, I was disgusted at Ashley Judd! I WILL NEVER watch any of her movie again! And Madonna's F-bomb terrorist remarks!!! It's funny, the reasons behind this match was to 1) voice women equality... as a woman, I never thought I was treated unequal, as a minority, yes,!i do face discrimination once in a while, but so does every color of skin in the planet, just not all the time, and I rise above it, not making it an excuse for my failure. As for demeaning women as sex object, blame Hollywood, not the president, they are the one who made pictures n movie that are totally demoralizing a woma's worth. As for one black mom who said her son's black lives matter, blame the music wrappers n writers, all the lines they sang or wrapped are about sex n drugs and made women into sexual objects. Blame The Obamas for bringing those wrappers n singers to the White House to celebrate their talent n encourage them!! So don't go to Washington n March blaming President Trump! Go look for the source n blame them!!! Oh and one more which is my Achilles, the jobless jobs that u don't have, blame Obama for letting people into the country like flies, to take away our jobs. My family feel the direct impact of his action, he let Pepsi's CEO have the freedom to tag team visas. one group comes when another group's visa expired go back to their country!!! The result: all Americans lost our jobs!!! My husband, his boss, and his boss's boss!!! Now the Whole Pepsi corporate building are full of visa workers! So to fix it, I voted for President Trump!!! Not Hillary!!! Because he will get the jobs back for American!!!

    I can't wait for Pres Trump to succeed so I can gloat. I am usually not a gloater, but I will do so in this case!!!!

    According to an e-letter I received today from author Karen Kingsbury, "Yesterday, was the 44th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. Since then 60 million babies have been killed."

    60 million. Let's say that just one-third of that number would have been female. Yes, 20 million.

    Twenty million is ten times the number of women who marched this past weekend because they are oppressed as they live in the best and most blessed country ever.

    No, none of these oppressed women marched for those embryos who would have become young ladies, yes, women, who truly had no voice. Killed, murdered from the worst of bullying situations.

    I agree with your article except for the following. Trump is not "the first president ever to be in favor of same-sex marriage upon taking office." Trump is for traditional marriage between a man and a woman... Always has been! And you mentioned Pro-life feminist in the 8th paragraph. Did you mean Pro-choice feminists? Seems to me a Pro-life feminist is a bit of an oxymoron.

    Mr Huckabee,
    I think most of those people were out of their minds. And I do not understand how we have turned into a Nation of Sissy La La's who need safe places and binkys. We are supposed to be Americans', strong, independent, self reliant and have a voice to stop abuse and injustice.

    What the hell happened ? That women run around being incredibly vulgar and having no self respect or dignity, and men who are led around by their noses, and degraded for being men.
    Has everyone lost the ability to be objective and see how ridiculous their behaviors are ?

    Really I wish people would just go home and take a Valium or smoke a joint and calm down.

    We are America and we need to take back our pride and independence and stop being dependent on what we were able to do just fine on our own.
    We need to change as a Country because we have let ourselves be almost destroyed by convenience and greed.

    Now is the time for major changes and time to take our country back and I understand change is scary and uncertain but no matter our religion or spiritual beliefs or even beliefs in Science alone, we need to work hard, speak in a way that is logical, and have faith and believe we can become United again.

    And please if you can not find common ground somewhere and become involved in rebuilding our Country then please do not be part of the problem, We need solutions, no more professional victims and temper tantrums.

    Thank you.

    Mr. Huckabee - when I want the TRUTH and rationale about a topic - I always go to you !! I as a woman, a decent woman, unlike the vulgar display I would occasionally glance at on the ONLY networks that gave it unwarranted merit and publicity, have had ZERO taken away. Nor will I. I am NO WAY in agreement with what they spewed. I listened and wondered : are they possibly auditioning for some DECADES old movie scenario. Haven't most of those rights been granted.... And the lady on Tucker Carlson tonight actually said "pro life women" were welcome. Well, on Face book - a pro life lady was there and approached very aggressively from the marchers. One lady went so far as to set the pro life lady's hair on fire with a lighter !! It's on video !!! And thanks to a gentleman standing there - he put it out because she did not know her hair was beginning to burn !!! I saw the smoke. This could have gone terribly bad. However, AFTER being caught on video by cell phone - the fire starter apologized. My question is - if no one had stepped in, would this peaceful "Woman Marcher" put it out or just let it go as her friends laughed !! Now - were these women actually peaceful and all about women's rights ? Or simply an Anti-Trump march? Another thing that makes me angry - they just dropped their filthy worded and pictorial signs and left them for someone else to clean up. Which by the way, a few Trump supporters stepped up and cleaned up this "Peaceful / Tolerant" bunch of protesters filthy mess.....
    I would like to see a city by city / churchs and or stadius filled with good decent women of Faith and let THE REST OF THE WOMEN be heard. I assure you - there would be no vulgarity and we would leave no mess. Just an honest TRUE meaning of "Love trumps Hate". That slogan is wasted on that group.
    Thanks.....and I would like to sit down to lunch and actually talk. I know you were once a pastor. My loving pastor died many years ago. Need to talk to one - I think in comparison to Rev. John Paul Jones of Huntsville, Texas - you stack up pretty close. Stay with us sir ! We need you.
    Sincerely

    This is what I wrote today..it's got its detractors ..but mostly positive. You wrote what was on my mind
    So this has bothered me when I first saw the words and I keep seeing it.
    Why are the Women's March protestors called brave? It implies that those who weren't there are not. Brave for walking?
    Brave is daring to go where the crowd does not go
    Brave is daring to speak your mind.
    Brave is a single mother trying to make it.
    Brave is a woman who chooses to stay home and be the caretaker.
    Brave is the woman that works outside of the home and follows her heart--or follows the needs of the family.
    Brave is the woman that sits by her child's grave and doesn't scream in the pain.
    Brave is the woman that gives her up child for adoption
    Brave is the woman that has the strength to leave an abusive relationship.
    Brave is the woman that yearns for a child but does not get that--and still is smiling at her friends that do.
    Brave is the woman that must live without her soulmate
    Brave is the woman that gets up at night to work for someone else.
    Brave is the woman that faces her challenges.
    Brave is not the spewing of hatred from people in show business.

    I guess I am more suited for jokes and Bible verses--but this bothered me too much.

    This march was not just about Trump. We have had many months of his rhetoric and what he plans to do. This also includes many of the GOP that have made their actions known. This march was a way we can make a statement to those in the government that we, as women , are a very strong force and will not be dismissed. Mr. Trump is very rude and a very negative force in his tweets and attacks on people the might not agree with him. Others were marching against many of the cabinet members that he has chosen that are out spokenly racists, and against the american worker. I, myself and most of my family that are teachers, are very concerned about the lack of background of Ms DeVos . Donating money ,whether in her home state or for Trumps campaign , does not qualify her. Others were marching for civil rights and human rights for all citizens ; Including our Muslim neighbors and my lesbian cousin or transgender friend. And yes, some chose graphic ways to bring their concern for retaining women`s rights. Right to obtain reasonably priced birth control or Pap smears or other tests. By removing funding for Planned Parenthood they will lose these thing and the removal of the AFA there will be even less care for women especially for single mothers that are barely getting by now. Many women were marching to say that the earth is important to us and we care that the clear air act is being attack to be replaced by big business pollution. As you can see there were many concerns by the women. We just ask the those in power take into consideration our concerns. For example, today surrounded by Men he signed an Anti-Abortion executive order. Where were the women? My main concern and worry is Social Security and Medicare. We are retired and depend on these 2 things. Just a word about privatizing Social Security. The company that my husband worked for payed a percentage pay back and only 30% of the workers took part. Do you really think people will save for their retirement if it is their responsibility. I think there are many that would not be so concerned if we felt that we could trust Mr. Trump but he tells lie after lie and denies it even when there is picture proof. We are scared and we are here watching and knowing that the next election is only 2 years away.

    The protesters have no solid message they were just protesting everything. They made no sense. When people like Madonna make comments like she did the secret service should have arrested her for terroristic threats against the president. If it were anyone else they would be in jail and looking for a good attorney.

    I sadly was horrified to find a family member at one of the rally's. when I asked him what exactly this march was about, while he was standing under a sign that read "we will overcome...our p!?.:;(s!!! Apparently they are all victims of some sort of imagined discrimination. There 25 years of life on this plant have been a burden. God, seriously please help us all! That is what they bring to the table of life, victimized babies.

    I also wondered what the purpose of this march was and came to the same conclusion-hate and angry feelings because Hillary lost. I am ashamed of these people who do not know about having no rights. I am 74 years of age and when I went to work I earned $200 a month less than my male co-worker and was told it was because he had a family to support. When my husband and I went to get a loan to buy a house my salary was not counted toward the total because I might get pregnant. The banker was allowed to question me about birth control and other personal things. That was part of the reason for the marches and demonstrations for equal rights so any years ago. These women need to thank others for their rights and help some of the people in their own towns who need help.

    our church Sunday, our preacher had a sermon about pride. Pride is praised and encouraged by the evil doers. Especially the actors and actresses, for example. Gay and Lesbian pride, pride in getting drunk, pride in nudity, pride in using cuss words, pride in protesting with destruction. Pride in killing babies, just to satisfy our own pride. Pride in our wealth, (we are nothing unless we are rich). Pride in how big and expensive our mansions are, and thinking we are better than those that don't. He didn't say all of this, but it is what the sermon was about. We are to humble ourselves before God, and give him credit for all that we have. God gave us everything that we have, including our looks, our brains, our abilities, and possessions. It isn't a sin or prideful to have any of these things, but it is if we say it was of our own doing, and thinking we are better than anyone else. This is what most of the people in the world think and have been taught by social media, and society. And what most of have problems with. Pride! This is what is dividing our country

    Hi Mr. Huckabee, I agree with your analysis of The March. IF they were trying to take up for the supressed and abused women world wide, that point did not come across from the speaches televised. Posts that I have read claim they are trying to help women who are single moms working two jobs to support their kids. They do not make enough to get health care, put food on the table, get decent housing, advanced education to better themselves and give a better life to their kids. The financially oppressed with no hope. I agree with that focus. Those women deserve a break and a voice. BUT I didn't get that from what I saw and heard from The March. If that is what they are trying to accomplish they need a better organized demonstration that would say that loud and clear. Women didn't get the vote by foul mouthed threatening speaches wearing vaginas on their heads and walking down the streets of DC bare breasted. And did you see the sign that said women want the same rights that guns have? Wow, be a cold day in Haties when i want to be treated like a man treats a gun. No thanks. These people need to get a grip and focus on what matters. If they had taken the time to listen to President Trump's speach, i believe he addressed all oppressed people in America. I think that includes male, female, and every ethnicity, religion, and square mile of the USA.

    Love your assessment and Mr. Simon hit the nail right on the head! I was absolutely horrified by the terrible things Ashley Judd said. Here I thought the women's march was going to be about promoting the better enforcement of women's equal rights (which we already have). Turns out it was just about a bunch of women who want everyone else to pay for their abortions and a bunch of Hillary supporters who are sore losers.

    Liberalism has reigned for the last eight years. Do not think they will easily give that up! During Obama's time in the whitehouse, Planned Parenthood started receiving government funding for abortions, gay marriage became the law of the land. Iran, the most evil empire in the world got funded to continue to build their nuclear arsenal! Satan does not give up easily! Donald Trump does not seemed to be phased by it all, he is pressing onward. I think those that are against the things Obama instituted are fortunate to have Trump, a real leader in there! Praise God, we need a pit bull!

    I have gone to tears over the way our country has become divided due to the intolerance of the Left. The majority do not have any respect for our government system or for others. I totally agree with your essay.

    In my opinion saying that Trump is in favor of same sex marriage is not properly stated. I think he may not favor but as president of all, accepts that there are people in America who choose that lifestyle. I for one, do not approve of same sex marriage but I will always treat those who choose same sex marriage as individuals worthy of friendship and respect.

    This march was organized by Planned Parenthood and they were marching for abortion rights - Plus they have already planned a much larger march for April 15th - they are angry because they don't know how to accept "We lost" and very Entitled - I am sick and tired of my democratic friends who are offended non stop posts on FB - Don't know how to stop this - They are totally out of control.

    First of all, the speakers they had seemed to demand Respect, but they gave none, made nasty and lude remarks I understand with children around. Like these women have never made lude remarks about men in private, and among close girlfriends?? Give me a break! Those same women use the F word loosely! Yet demand respect. I was ashamed for women all over the world actually for their behavior. Trump took responsibility for his remarks. Respect starts at home, they need to first seek that in their young teens.

    Yes, I too wonder what the point of the march was, other than to vent. I would ask them what are they doing to make lives better for those less fortunate. How much money could have been raised had they donated the money it cost them to march to provide food for the poor?

    I want to thank Michelle Hanken for her service.

    What I saw on TV, and on Fox News made me ashamed of being a woman. Why were little children there with the vulgar signs and the other outrageous outfits ?? The high profiled speakers and the language that was coming out of their mouths was so gross. I never did figure out what they were marching for. They have more rights than many other nations, more freedoms, and the right to kill their babies. So what is left?? I just pray God Will Keep Blessing our country, God Bless Our President Donald J. Tromp..

    Mike,

    Thanks for your insight. I agree 100% with what you wrote and am embarrassed for our country in the sight of other nations who must look at us like we're a bunch of looney-tunes (which might just be appropriate in some cases). The events of last weekend really showed me the true colors of many celebrities that before then, I sort of appreciated their work. However, after hearing the hate speech that I heard from many of them, it showed me that their views go far beyond just a polite disagreement politics-wise, which I can handle. It showed me their true inner selves and hate for all that is right and decent and Biblical in America. They really reduced themselves in my eyes and so now I know who in both music and movies I will avoid paying any money to see. He's not perfect, but Donald Trump is our President, I stand with him and America, and as long as he stays true to Israel and Biblical principles and does things that bring America back to prosperity and respect, I always will. Have a great day!
