Letter: He was at Women's March

To the Editor:

A take on the Women’s March from someone who was - really - there. Our armchair Constitutionalist and full time Republican/Libertarian has branched out from faux Founder’s quotes to showing a reckless disregard for the truth about the Women’s March.  

Yes, it was an anti-Trump march. And you could say that about the rest of the world’s Women’s Marches. But it was more than that. It was about fair pay, voting rights, LGBTQ rights, reproductive freedom, racism, etc.

Somebody needs to have his eyes checked. I didn’t see anything that were “…signs with profanity on them so vulgar that I doubt this paper would even print them…”. You must have very delicate sensibilities.

You say “Pro Life Christian women not welcome…” They were welcome. But why would they want to come to this event? They tend to be against everything the March was about.

The reason you don’t like Linda Sansour is that she’s a Muslim. I did a search on her and didn’t find any stories about sexual harassment except for far right screeds. If you did a paper at school using those sources you would get a big fat F for your efforts. Why should Sansour say anything about Iranian women having to wear a hijab? They don’t all by the way. A lot of Muslim women do it willingly. I find it interesting that you would call a hijab an “oppressive garment”. Since you seem to disagree with everything the March stood for.

Where did you see “…heaping trash with protestor signs…”? I was up by the stage and then marched all that way to the end. Protestors kept their signs and took them with them on the train home. Where were you at? You should post those pictures on your Facebook page.

When you’re searching online for alt-right websites, stop at the Webster’s dictionary site. Then you can find out what the word “nationalist” means. A nationalist is a person that thinks that everything their country does is better than any other country, my country right or wrong. The people at this march were not nationalists. Not even close.

Lastly, the March was about American women. Not about women around the world. Then you say a protestor was ashamed of her sign? All were proud of them.
