Yesterday was International Women’s Day.
I believe that we should honor the women in our lives.
I do so as often as I can, being blessed with a wonderful wife, daughter, sister, and niece.
Unfortunately, just as they do with everything they get involved in, “The Smartest People in the Room” turned a day meant to honor women, into an exercise in unwanted political activism.
Foxnews.com reported yesterday that
Billionaire George Soros gave $246 million to groups behind Wednesday’s “Day Without a Woman” protest, according to a report by a conservative think tank.
Wednesday is “International Women’s Day,” and schools in at least four states canceled classes so teachers and staff members could participate in “Day Without a Woman” demonstrations.
While movement organizers say the demonstration is meant to spotlight gender inequality, critics say it is intended to protest President Donald Trump. The strike was created by the same organizers of the historic Women’s March on Washington in January, which drew hundreds of thousands in protest of the president.
A report released Wednesday claims that Soros — whose net worth is $25.2 billion and who champions liberal causes — gave millions to groups behind the demonstration.
Of the march’s 544 partners, 100 groups received funding from Soros that totaled $246 million, according to the conservative Media Research Center. Such groups included Planned Parenthood, the Center for American Progress and People for the American Way (PFAW), the report claims.
“Those donations represent just a fragment of Soros’ massive global influence,” the Media Research Center said on its website. “His Open Society Foundations have given away more than $13 billion to push his globalist, anti-American views.”

New York, NY — The NYPD detained a dozen protestors, including the leader of the Women’s March, Linda Sarsour, during the ‘Day Without a Woman’ protest on Wednesday afternoon.
The Twitter account for the Women’s March movement, which is the umbrella group for Wednesday’s nationwide protest, showed photos of organizers being arrested and placed into an NYPD van, surrounded by photographers. According to a spokesperson for the Women’s March movement, 10 of their activists who helped organized the event were taken into custody.
“Today, the national leaders of the Women’s March on Washington gathered with allies and those participating in the day’s actions for a show of solidarity and revolutionary love,” the statement reads. “After a peaceful protest in New York City in honor of A Day Without a Woman, 10 organizers were arrested by the New York City Police Department in an act of civil disobedience.”
The arrests took place early Wednesday afternoon as protestors declined police pleas to disperse from their protest site at the Trump International hotel. More than 500 people, mostly women, were in attendance. Many were seen dressed in red to show solidarity, while some were wearing pink knitted hats and were carrying vulgar signs and chanting “F*ck Trump” and “New York Hates Trump.”
The participants began gathering outside Trump Tower at noon. By 1 p.m., the group then began to block traffic by marching towards Columbus Circle to form a “Human Wall” around the Trump International hotel.
Shortly after the arrests, police used a noise cannon to announce that pedestrians are prohibited from blocking the sidewalk or walking in the street.
An NYPD spokesman declined to say how many demonstrators were arrested or their charges until the protest ends.
Sarsour is a controversial figure because of her support for Islamic social rules — include rules that restrict women — and her combative politics towards Israel’s democracy.
I wonder if Soros paid her bail?
But, I digress…
To describe Ms. Sarsour as”controversial” is a understatement.
Hold on to something, boys and girls, here’s where it gets good…
Believe it or not, I am about to cite aljazeera.america.com…
Last August, watching the images of militarized police cracking down on protesters in Ferguson, Missouri, after a police officer shot and killed 18-year-old Michael Brown, Linda Sarsour decided to get involved.
Sarsour, a Palestinian-American activist from New York City, has a growing national profile in battles against surveillance of Muslims, discrimination and Islamophobia. In recent years, her work in New York has brought her closer to African-American activists fighting stop and frisk, biased policing and mass incarceration.
In Missouri, Mustafa Abdullah, an organizer with the local branch of the ACLU, was staring at his computer on the Monday after Brown’s death, feeling overwhelmed by the torrent of complaints about rights violations coming in from the protests, when Sarsour called.
“Mustafa,” she said. “Where is the Muslim community on this?”
“I hadn’t even thought of that question,” Abdullah, who is Egyptian-American, said later. “Linda’s call was almost a prophetic call, a call to conscience.”
Immigrant Muslims have spent the years since 9/11 largely on the defensive against increased suspicion and bias. But a new generation — social media savvy and versed in the new tools of decentralized activism — is asserting itself through multiracial coalitions that challenge the parochial approach and sometimes the prejudices of its elders.
Sarsour, a blunt-talking, hijab-wearing, 35-year-old Brooklynite forged in the crucible of New York City politics, has played a galvanizing role in this mutation. A veteran of nuts-and-bolts local work — for instance, to raise Muslim voter turnout and have the Eid festivals made school holidays — she is also a regular presence on cable, sparring with the likes of anti-Islam activist Pamela Geller. But as the mobilization known as Black Lives Matter has taken flight, Sarsour has thrown her effort into building its Muslim contribution.
…Sarsour asked Abdullah to draft a letter to Brown’s family for Muslim groups to sign. Within days, they started a Muslims for Ferguson campaign, holding conference calls for college students, professionals and imams to hear from Ferguson residents and raising money for local organizers. In October, she visited Ferguson. “It was beautiful,” she said. “I was in hijab. I didn’t look like the other people there, and I was embraced.”
In April she walked 250 miles in eight days from Staten Island in New York to Washington, D.C., in the March2Justice with some 70 other activists to deliver a package of criminal justice reform demands. She co-chaired the march with Tamika Mallory, a former top aide to the Rev. Al Sharpton. A month earlier, Sarsour had been in the Capitol as the guest of U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand for the address to a joint session of Congress by the president of Afghanistan. This time, she rallied outside with Danny Glover, “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett and U.S. Reps. John Lewis, Yvette Clarke, Keith Ellison and Barbara Lee.
Two days earlier, the marchers from New York had been at Sunday services at the Empowerment Temple in Baltimore when Pastor Jamal Bryant told the congregation that Freddie Gray, who was critically injured during his arrest the previous week, had died. Sarsour and Mallory changed their route to join protests at the Western District police station, at the risk of being called carpetbaggers. “We made the choice to go, even though we were not locals,” Sarsour said. “It spoke to why we were marching.”
Back in New York, she joined rallies in support of the Baltimore protests. She ran a national call, like those after Ferguson, with Baltimore grass-roots activists — both Muslim and non-Muslim, including one who worked with the Nation of Islam, which many immigrant Muslims hold in low esteem. And she sparred on Facebook with a leader of the Islamic Society of North America over a statement that she felt focused too much on condemning looting while neglecting deep-rooted discrimination.
Accustomed to being called a “Islamist supremacist,” a label she greets with derision, by right-wing site JihadWatch, Sarsour gladly calls herself a radical for racial justice, especially in the past year. “My radicalizing moment was when Mike Brown was shot,” she said.
Dante Barry, the executive director of the Million Hoodies Movement for Justice, said, “I think Linda is a great co-conspirator in the fight for black liberation.”
“She was able to see the intersection between what was happening to the Muslim and black communities and connect them,” said Murad Awawdeh, the head of the Muslim Democratic Club of New York, which Sarsour co-founded. “We can always march together, but organizing for policy — five or 10 years ago, no one was doing this.”
Also, according to The Daily Caller, this little flower of womanhood recently met with an ex-Hamas Operative. And, she has familial ties to other Hamas Operatives.
Now, let me try to wrap my around this.
All of these losers…err…women marched and demonstrated for their freedom to kill babies and live they way they want to, because of “Gender Inequality” amd they are afraid of being “oppressed” under our new President, who once had a “locker room” conversation with another guy about how to “pick up” a woman at the party that they were attending.
And yet, the “Leader” of yesterday’s demonstration is a Radical Islamist and Pro-Sharia Law, championing a culture in which women are treated as slaves, live in veiled servitude (if they’re lucky), subject to verbal abuse, mutilation (including genital), and honor killings, which also applies to their daughters.
The idiots in Hollyweird could not write a more ironic screenplay than this reality.
All of these “brilliant”, liberated, P@$$y Hat-wearing Liberal women marched like a bunch of cattle yesterday, being led by a woman whose ideology would oppress them more than they had ever thought of…even to the death.
The irony is overwhelming.
Meanwhile, the majority of American Women went about their lives being productive American Citizens and cherished and loved daughters, wives, mothers, and grandmothers.
It just proves what I have always said, that
Those who believe themselves to be the “Smartest People in the Room”…usually aren’t.
It also proves that
Beauty is only skin deep…but ugly goes to the bone.
Especially when you’re wearing a P@$$y Hat and participating in a march being led by a Radical Islamist and being funded by a Former Nazi Sympathizer.
