I just came across a bunch of people taking out a protest march in San Jose. They called it the Women’s March( https://www.womensmarch.com/team/ ), I looked it up once I got home and apparently it is some sort of protest against Trump.
I think the march is a total farce. It has no cause, the new government has not curtailed their rights in any way, and have not implemented any new policy. So I fail to understand what these people were protesting.
If one actually sees the team of people organizing it, it contains people with a very shady past. Linda Sarsour in the past has supported Sharia law ( https://twitter.com/almostjingo/status/822411501247938560 and http://dailycaller.com/2017/01/21/womens-march-organizer-recently-met-ex-hamas-operative-has-family-ties-to-terror-group/) and is a Hamas sympathizer. That is the very definition of a rabid Islamist who needs to be denounced in the strongest terms. There is nothing liberal about tolerating Sharia law or the people who propose it. In fact it is the very antithesis of liberalism. Following the lead of such people can never be wise.
The protest march also had idiots who were trying to pass off wearing the hijab as some sort of symbol of women empowerment. It would be funny if it were not sad.
Another march held in Iran back in 1979 was a real Women’s march( http://nytlive.nytimes.com/womenintheworld/2015/09/15/the-day-100000-iranian-women-protested-the-head-scarf/). When the Islamic Revolution tried to strip the citizens of their rights, good people tried to protest against it.
The current lot are just a bunch of jokers with no cause, and full of hot air.
