EDITOR’S NOTE: The Day Without A Woman march, to be held in Washington on March 8, is the second such anti-Trump march that is being organized by Muslim operatives who seem to have taken control of the Democratic Party. The organizers are calling upon woman to “rise up in militant struggle” against our new president.
Which means another public instance of Trump haters shouting slogans to one another and mistaking it for constructive politics. What progressives need to defeat Trump is outreach, but all they have is outrage.
On March 8, organizers seem to be aiming for a different vibe than the librarians-in-vagina-hats element that made the first women’s march after Trump’s inauguration so adorable.
Instead of milling around Washington, organizers have in mind a “general strike” called the Day without a Woman. In a manifesto published in The Guardian on Feb. 6, the brains behind the movement are calling for a “new wave of militant feminist struggle.” That’s right: militant, not peaceful.
