It was wonderful to see just how many millions of women and men showed up for each other all across not only the U.S., but globally. One crone facebook friend in Seattle remarked on how the buoyant energy of that day affected her.
I imagine that same or similar spirit pervading all the marches, very unlike the sporadic violence of the day before in D.C. In D.C. itself, I read somewhere that despite one million marchers, there was not even a single arrest on that storied day.
Also glad to realize that Hillary Clinton, while her candidacy may have been the spur that kicked the march into motion, she was not the focus. Instead, we are, all of us, just as Donald Trump indicated in his own speech the day before — an address that has been widely pilloried by the left wing press as saying something else entirely!
Meanwhile, it appears that (immortal?) George Soros may have had his grubby hidden hand in those numbers as well.
I doubt those marching were aware of it, but billionaire “philanthropist” Soros is famous for generating crowds for massive protests in order to start “color revolutions” that ultimately topple governments.
And, to continue with this rather jaundiced view of the Women’s March, variously stated to be the largest in history(?), here’s one young woman via the We Are Change channel.
And here’s a cartoon that kinda says the same thing:
Meanwhile, even assuming that one million marchers in DC, joined by four million others in 600 cities and towns across the globe is a wonderful thing, the question, of course, we must ask, is now what? Is this it? Will this new women’s moment turn into a new women’s movement? If so, what will that transformation take to succeed? (And what would success look like?) Here’s one seasoned veteran of Occupy who wonders too, and offers some sage advice.
