It's sad to see these women being used

I was disappointed to see The News-Sentinel had determined the  “Women’s March” worth reporting (Jan. 23), considering this paper’s traditionally conservative stance. And especially incongruous to me, considering the sponsors of the gathering were Planned Parenthood, the Human Rights Campaign and the George Soros-funded moveon.org. I’m confident in the belief that neither Susan B. Antony nor Elizabeth Cady Stanton could have envisioned the suffrage movement they spearheaded in 1869 devolving into disgruntled Democratic Party women pursuing “vagina-based politics” on D.C. streets in 2017.

I am embarrassed for the women who stood with anti-Trump placards, those who wore pink hats representing vaginas and those who stood at rapt attention while a certain “celebrity” advocated the overthrow of the republic.

What stakes could possibly be so high a priority as to prompt braving of the January cold to listen to others denounce our just-elected president and show such utter disregard for our incredible form of government?

It was a forum of groups who oppose traditional morality and justice by law. It was a resistance movement by women scared of the very real possibility that a Republican-controlled government will strip Planned Parenthood of taxpayer funding.

It’s a sad state of affairs to watch as women are being used by those forces that seek to destroy America and her freedoms. It is a certain spirit of rebellion that confuses and contradicts, causing otherwise intelligent and compassionate women into being blind and dumb to the atrocity that is abortion, further, the filmed proofs, of women-as-monsters in the process of selling baby parts to the highest bidders — all the while sipping wine.

In a world now full of celebrity-sponsored ad campaigns, it’s a mystery why anyone would travel long distance to stand near them as they spew unscripted (and in the case of Ashley Judd, largely incoherent) diatribes. For a group condemning hate, much of the rhetoric we’re hearing from the left is alarmingly like what Obama’s 2018 campaign manager David Plouffe labeled Rev. Wright’s preaching: “divisive, hateful, bombastic,conspiracy-crazy, and just generally repugnant.”

I challenge you, ladies, to boil it down to a fundamental statement. It’s your responsibility to judge properly and not be deceived by the “group think” of the communistic far left that is Hollywood. What is fashionable on today’s runway is rarely becoming to the majority of women.

Choose your battles with care and wisdom, and equally important, with whom you align.
