The Women's March was about tantrums, not women

The “women’s” march this past weekend was about many things, but it was not about women. It was a temper-tantrum induced, anti-Trump, pro-abortion, pro-LGBT special rights march by the entitlement generation. 

The women in this march do not represent me or my values, nor do they represent the majority of women in this country.

This is a group of people who are unable to come to grips with the fact that the American people have spoken, the Electoral College voted, and they lost.

On Inauguration Day I told my girls, “this is what freedom looks like.” Sometimes we like the results of an election. Sometimes we don’t.

What a great country we live in that we are free to have our say, and it’s “we the people” who get to decide who our leaders will be.

I didn’t vote for our last president. In fact, in eight years I can’t think of a single major policy position of his that I agreed with.

However, he was still my president. I was outvoted. Life goes on. You pray for him and work for the change you want to see. In short, you accept that you don’t always get your way. You move on.

The left and their friends in the media gave it their best effort to thwart the will of people.  Recounts, Russian hacking, threatening electoral college voters, and let’s not forget the fake news from BuzzFeed and CNN. When those didn’t pan out, the group that preaches “tolerance” and “peace” resorted to violent meltdowns.

Bashing in windows of businesses and cars, throwing rocks at cops, and lighting a limo on fire were a few of the things that went down on inauguration day. Oh, and let’s not forget blocking U.S. Air Force members from entering an inauguration checkpoint. Classy.

The attitude of violence continued at the “women’s” march. Madonna tolerantly declared: “Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House.” Women at the “women’s” march were yelled and spit at for holding pro-life signs, which were also ripped up. Tolerance.

All of this because we disagree with someone else’s viewpoint. 

I’m trying to raise my girls to be independent, strong, and respectful of others, while being unapologetic about what they believe. This is not the picture I want them to see of what a woman looks like.

Whose values, exactly? 

I’m a woman, and they’re not my values. They’re also not the values of my friends, who are women. 

Concerned Women for America is the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization, with half a million members. That’s larger than NOW, Planned Parenthood, and Emily’s List.

The “values” displayed at the march are not the values of members of CWA. 

The far left, with the help of their friends in the media, have long tried to brand themselves as the party of women, and they make the arrogant assumption that if you are a woman then you obviously hold those same extreme values.

This election proved they’ve failed miserably. Women in America aren’t buying what they’re selling.

Sadly, the “women’s” march wasn’t about women. It wasn’t a march trying to bring all women together, and it certainly didn’t represent a majority of women in this country.
