Margaret Thatcher once wisely said, “Being powerful is like being a lady. If you have to tell people you are, you aren’t.”
Margaret Thatcher had it right, the more you claim, the less you probably are. The recent march of the ‘pussyhat’ protesters seemed to confirm that. Carrying signs with disgusting slogans and demeaning anyone that disagreed with them doesn’t leave one with a feeling of any real accomplishment. A peaceful discussion, common sense, and a sense of fair play might promote conversation but how can one do so with the yelling and shoving that goes on once you are perceived as a ‘non-believer’?
The event was promoted as a way for ALL women to come together and voice their needs, desires, wants, etc., as citizens of the United States. Unfortunately, their cause lost some ‘moral’ traction when they only allowed their agenda to be heard and disrespected the women who advocated pro-life. Seems to me that the pro-life women were fighting for the future women the other marchers were fighting so hard to have aborted.
The real contradiction in this recent event is that they proposed it to give every woman a place to represent . . . except if you disagreed with them. Students for Life were in attendance and verbally abused and one, pregnant woman was actually shoved into the street by three of the ‘peaceful’ demonstrators for the Women’s March. Tolerance is a one-way street for these women.
We had a very learned pastor, years ago, who said that a woman who abuses her child is not a mother. How can a woman abort one child then give birth to another when it is convenient to her?
