More than a million people who turned out on Saturday for women’s marches in all 50 states have put down their placards, taken off their pink hats and ended their chants after what was an extraordinary display of dissent against the Trump presidency.
A critical question remains: What happens now?
David Brock, the Democratic activist, assembled a group of about 120 leading liberal donors in Aventura, Fla., to hear plans for lawsuits and other challenges to Mr. Trump.
But the leaders believe that the common thread — revulsion and contempt for the man who is now president — may be powerful enough.
“Trump is the cure here,” said Senator Jeff Merkley, an Oregon Democrat and supporter of Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont during the Democratic primary who was invited to Mr. Brock’s conference. “He brings everybody together.”
So in essence, it appears that Merkley and his pals plan to double down on their winning strategery: they spent the entire campaign demonizing Ferret-top as a bigot and a racist and a promoter of hatred, while tossing half of the country into that "basket of deplorables" because Democratics are incredibly Tolerant™ and feel nothing but pity for the great unwashed masses.
And now, having spent over a year painting the guy as a hater, they figure to capitalize on "revulsion and contempt" - and more hatred. It worked so well the last time.
Cecile Richards, the president of Planned Parenthood, a sponsor of the marches, saw another rallying cry: “Women in America are not going back.”
Hey, Cecile - nobody's telling women to go anywhere. Fact: women in this country have more rights than men. You get "free" birth control, "free" abortions, "free" 'well baby care', "free" breast pumps, and yet nothing's ever enough; you always think you should have more. Nobody's telling women in America to "go back", Cecile - but we are demanding an end to the constant pity party.
Oh my! Wascally Wepublicans may actually do something about the "Affordable Care Act" - like make Obamacare actually affordable! Heavens to Murgatroid!
It's clear at this point that the only tools the Left knows how to wield with some degree of success involve fear, hatred, and division - and even those didn't work this last time around.
As for the "gender political" aspect that led many to believe that Pantsuit would win if only they repeated "vagina" often enough:
For decades they've had the "right to chose". There are more women lawyers than men, more female doctors, more women CEO's, etc. Women have so many choices they don't know what to do. All bad intentions and experiences will never be eliminated from planet earth. It's called reality. But when super wealthy entertainers try to suggest I've never seen the horror they've seen, they lost me. I don't think their mothers ever taught them people get the respect they deserve.
Out of 3,141 counties in the USA Trump won 3,084, Clinton won 57. Although liberal bastions like California and New York voted for her, the Trump win was across the board. The Liberal media and Hollywood are now wetting their pants and stamping their feet because everyone was supposed to get a participation trophy.
And the women in America aren't going back! They want a participation trophy too!
