In my comments on Martin Luther King Day, I quoted him on how letting yourself hate those you disagree with eats away at you like acid and destroys the hater as well as the hated. Saturday was the second annual “Women’s March,” and it’s obvious that the hatred is taking its toll. The revelations about the hateful anti-Semitism of the Women’s March organizers has driven away so many sponsors and supporters that attendance at the Washington march was way down (from 500,000 in 2017 to at most 100,000 – although that’s from friendly sources and I suspect it was far lower.)
Some are trying to blame it on the cold weather or the government shutdown, but that didn’t stop people from turning out for the March For Life the day before. But beyond the anti-Semitic hatred at the top, many rank-and-file members are also intent on making clear that their motivations are also hatred and anger, even to the point that they fill their protest signs with vile, profane, hateful language and proudly wave them in public for children to see.
They apparently were not appalled that a newly-elected Representative claimed to have used the filthiest term in the language about the President in front of her small son, but were so inspired by it that they wanted to repeat it in front of the whole world. Personally, I don’t see how advertising that you are foul-mouthed, hate-filled and have no respect for those around you wins friends and influences people. If this is the best they can do, then I expect next year’s Women’s March (if there even is one) could be held in a 7-11 parking lot.
At the link are some photos taken at the DC Women’s March by blogger Jim Bovard. Before clicking, please be warned: their placards contain very offensive language that you might not want to see and that you certainly don’t want your children to see. And again: they were proudly waving these in the streets, in front of cameras, and in the faces of children.
