A Noisy Beginning
January 24, 2017 6 Comments
Well, it was quite a weekend, wasn’t it? Never, in my lifetime and that includes 1968, have I seen so much stupidity on the streets. We, of course, knew the childish left was going to throw a tantrum, but looking in occasionally on Saturday, I just couldn’t get over how obsessed by sex these women are. Or maybe they simply are deprived of it. If my reaction is any indication, they will have that problem for a long time. Is there anything less desirable to have in your life than these screaming harpies? In any case, a few words from the adults might be in order.
Yeah, it was about this bad.
Seems rather simplistic, but yeah, it was about that stupid. The videos I won’t carry, between the stupidity and the obscenities, not to mention the pure hatred, without cause, well, I’m not going to carry such insulting material.
Then there is the surprise that surprises nobody, from Powerline.
Asra Nomani describes herself as a liberal Muslim, Trump voter, and former Wall Street Journal reporter. She wondered what the common denominator among the various groups participating in the Women’s March on Washington over the weekend might be. Nomani’s interesting if unsurprising findings are posted under the heading “Billionaire George Soros has ties to more than 50 partners of the Women’s March on Washington” — on a New York Times site, no less.
“Following the money,” Nomani states, “I pored through documents of billionaire George Soros and his Open Society philanthropy, because I wondered: What is the link between one of Hillary Clinton’s largest donors and the ‘Women’s March’?” Plot spoiler: “I found out: plenty.”
Nomani’s unsurprising findings are worth a look:
By my draft research, which I’m opening up for crowd-sourcing on GoogleDocs, Soros has funded, or has close relationships with, at least 56 of the march’s “partners,” including “key partners” Planned Parenthood, which opposes Trump’s anti-abortion policy, and the National Resource Defense Council, which opposes Trump’s environmental policies. The other Soros ties with “Women’s March” organizations include the partisan MoveOn.org (which was fiercely pro-Clinton), the National Action Network (which has a former executive director lauded by Obama senior advisor Valerie Jarrett as “a leader of tomorrow” as a march co-chair and another official as “the head of logistics”). Other Soros grantees who are “partners” in the march are the American Civil Liberties Union, Center for Constitutional Rights, Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch. March organizers and the organizations identified here haven’t yet returned queries for comment.
On the issues I care about as a Muslim, the “Women’s March,” unfortunately, has taken a stand on the side of partisan politics that has obfuscated the issues of Islamic extremism over the eight years of the Obama administration. “Women’s March” partners include the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which has not only deflected on issues of Islamic extremism post-9/11, but opposes Muslim reforms that would allow women to be prayer leaders and pray in the front of mosques, without wearing headscarves as symbols of chastity. Partners also include the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which wrongly designated Maajid Nawaz, a Muslim reformer, an “anti-Muslim extremist” in a biased report released before the election. The SPLC confirmed to me that Soros funded its “anti-Muslim extremists” report targeting Nawaz. (Ironically, CAIR also opposes abortions, but its leader still has a key speaking role.)
It’s going to be a noisy few years, I’m afraid. But if we keep our head screwed on straight, it’ll be “Much Ado about Nothing”. In fact, I think I’ll find a YouTube of The Taming of the Shrew, or maybe McClintock.
Cause you just can’t fix stupid.
