Another holiday, another day for Progressives to hijack it for something or other. This is what happens when people don’t have jobs and anything better to do
Sick and tired of roses and chocolates this Valentine’s Day? Eve Ensler and the One Billion Rising campaign have an alternative V-Day event that might strike your fancy.
Come Feb. 14, One Billion Rising will opt less for cards and candy and more for awareness of the violence endured by women and girls. As it has done every year since 2012, the organization ― which takes its name from a stark statistic claiming one in three women around the world will be beaten or raped during their lifetime* ― will host a series of “risings” in over 200 countries that advocate for the victims of such violence and rail against the impunity that persists in its wake.
Well, that’s a good start. No mention of all the rape that occurs on college campuses run by Liberals or in the Democratic Party run big cities. Of course, it’s going to devolve into a hotbed of far leftism
In New York City, however, the V-Day rising will be unique. Dubbed “Artistic Uprising ― A Call For Revolutionary Love,” the event is not only aimed at shining a light on the women and girls at risk of violence, but also on “refugees, immigrants, Muslims, LGBTQI people, black people, the indigenous, the poor” ― individuals who find themselves under threat in America’s present political climate.
Interesting. Women are treated like, well, utter shit in so many Muslim areas and Muslims (obviously, not all). We’ve seen the rape epidemics in Europe from all the “refugees”. Will there be a discussion of this?
“Activists will RISE against the neo-fascist, racist patriarchy taking hold in governments throughout the world, against bigotry, Islamophobia, homophobia, transphobia, anti-immigration, nativism, white nationalism, climate change denial, imperialist and capitalist aggressions, misogyny and hate,” One Billion Rising wrote in a press release for the NY-specific rally. “From Standing Rock to financial deregulation to the ‘Muslim Ban,’ activists will demand the new regime’s agenda be dismantled.”
I ran across this typical piece of progressive Rage Against Everything (except, of course, Muslims treating women like shit) while looking for ‘climate change’ news. And the rage continues in paragraph after paragraph.
The funny part is that these nutters, who had a legitimate point about sexual assault before going down Wackadoodle Road, fail to understand that their whole politics are based on Progressive ideology, which has its roots in early 20th Century fascism. It’s all about central government dominance.
“We’re seeing an assault on women [here],” Ensler told HuffPost. “This administration has not only escalated [rape culture] but has really normalized it,” she added. “So we are rising for immigrants. We are rising for African-Americans. We are rising for LGBTQIA. We are rising for women. We are rising for everyone in this country who is under siege, which is just about everyone except for white men for as far as I can tell.”
Um, what? Trump has escalated rape culture? Really? How so? These people are deranged. And this is why people tune out. You take a legitimate issue and crank up the crazy from a tropical depression to a category 5 hurricane.
