Today, several left wing organizations held a “NH Women’s Day of Unity and Action” rally in Concord. One of the biggest sponsors was Planned Parenthood. They claim to be the voices for all women but women who are pro-life weren’t invited. Even women who agree with the left on every issue other than abortion were not welcome. As a matter of fact, women who disagree with extreme left wing ideology weren’t welcome to the event at all. they protested on the sidewalk instead. It wasn’t about women uniting; it was about pushing the same failed left wing ideology that helped Democrats lose to Republicans across the country in the 2016 elections.
The “New Hampshire Women’s Foundation,” another left wing organization that has popped up in the Granite State says the following:
This is an inclusive day of action and unity. We believe in the strength possible when we act together and the necessity to build diverse coalitions because defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us. All are welcome who stand for religious freedom, women’s rights, human rights, climate justice, racial justice, economic justice, and reproductive justice.
It’s unclear exactly what “reproductive justice” actually is but they’re for it! It’s also not clear what “climate justice” is supposed to represent. Is Mother Nature demanding a lawyer?
The “Women’s Rally” wasn’t about “unifying all women” as they claimed and it was hardly inclusive. Pro-life women were actually uninvited to participate. Apparently the only women that matter to the left are those who are pro-abortion. It’s interesting they claim these groups are all “marginalized.” The left has spent the last 8 years marginalizing every American who didn’t agree with their extreme leftism. The left lost the election because they marginalized blue collar workers; gun owners; conservative women; pro-lifers; white men; police officers; Christians; those for traditional marriage and the list goes on. Apparently they haven’t learned their lesson.
There were a lot of people in Concord. The rally was definitely a success for the numbers but what came across very loud and clear was the absolute hypocrisy of the left. It’s amazing these people, especially women, don’t even grasp how blatant it was.
There were signs demanding “accountability.” Interesting these same Democrats didn’t demand accountability when it came to Obama. They only want accountability if there are Republicans in charge.
There were signs that claimed “women’s rights are human rights.” Unbelievable considering the left abhors women’s fundamental human right to self defense and does everything possible to push more gun control so that women CAN’T practice that actual protected right.
Along these same lines were signs that claimed “my body, my choice.” Unfortunately these women only believe in choice when it comes to abortion. They don’t believe in women having CHOICES when it comes to the following:
Protecting themselves and their children
Worker freedom from forced unionization
School choice for mothers
Purchasing the healthcare that is best for their families
There is a laundry list a mile long of other “choices” that Democrat legislators have taken AWAY or try to take away from women over the years. Those choices don’t matter to the left, only the choice of abortion does.
Senator Jeanne Shaheen spoke at the rally and talked about how horrible it is that the Trump Administration might end taxpayer funding of birth control around the world. This woman is more worried about the hard-earned money of her constituents funding birth control in foreign countries than she is about them being able to afford healthcare for their own families. Not once did Shaheen mention ending the horrific oppression of women in other parts of the world like many countries in the Middle East. No, Shaheen never mentioned that. It’s far more important to give women free birth control than it is to free them from being treated like 3rd-class citizens – killed, stoned, raped, jailed, uneducated and abused just for being women.
Others had signs against “bigotry.” These are the same people who have displayed their hatred and bigotry towards Christians, gun owners, Republicans, conservatives and pro-lifers for years.
One woman held a sign that simply said “illegitimate.” The irony in this is she believes Trump is an illegitimate President all while ignoring the massive corruption in the Democrat Party that was exposed during the election. Apparently the Democrats scored big with their “Russian hacking” points with the ignorant voters who support them.
There was a young girl holding a sign for the Sierra Club that claimed “gender equity.” Since the Sierra Club is about protecting endangered species of animals, are they demanding gender equity for endangered animals? How exactly does that work? If you support them but aren’t a leftist, spend your money elsewhere.
The best sign of all was “tolerance.” Democrats are the most intolerant political party in United States history. If you don’t agree with any of their extreme left wing views, you will be demonized as a hater, racist, bigot, science denier or xenophobe. They still don’t understand that it is their horrific intolerance over the past 8 years that destroyed them.
The rally was nothing more than leftists pushing their left-wing ideology. It’s understandable they want to unite amongst each other but proves they are still out-of-touch with the rest of the country. Rather than actually unite and have an honest discussion about areas where women might be able to agree, they choose to continue on. They continue the same behavior that caused Democrats to get steamrolled across the country in the last election. This was a rally to unify the left in order to give them the “thumb’s up” to continue their intolerance, bigotry and hatred towards anyone who disagrees with them.
The Concord rally seemed to be much more “civil” than the Portsmouth rally. Photos below were taken by Jeff Chidester
