The Women’s March in Washington (and the marches across America and the world) got a lot of coverage on the national and international news. Footage of outraged women screaming obscenities while simultaneously pretending they were marching for love would almost be hilarious if it weren’t so troubling.
Why is it troubling? It’s not just another example of Leftist outrage that utterly lacks a sense of irony, it’s also a sign that the Left care more about getting their feelings hurt than they do about democracy, decency, and the rule of law.
Although there were plenty of examples of women (and most depressingly, children) using profanity and even starting fires, it was the celebrities who, of course, hogged the limelight. Most notably, Madonna took to the stage and admitted that she had “thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House.” She later explained that she was “speaking in metaphor.”
