Okay, here we go…..get ready to down vote in 3….2…..1..
The Women’s March is all we have? I’ve had friends ask me if I was going. Aside from the fact that I’ll be working that day, I replied “Well, you see, I am not a woman. When’s the Men’s March? I’ll see if I can take the day off!”
Yeah, I get it. This is all to get Tiny Hands Trump to shake in his boots and think twice about what he plans to do next (as if he actually thought once or had an actual plan).
It’s this “Women” thing that tells me we STILL don’t get it.
Trump won with 62% of the non-college educated white female vote.
Clinton only beat Trump by 4% with the female vote in Florida.
And there is this handy anecdote. In my town of Franklin, there were only six people holding Trump signs at the polls, all women.
Hello? Bueller? Anyone?
Hillary Clinton placed most of her chips on the woman’s vote…….and lost.
Now we want to double down?
Clearly, not all women are against Trump. The data suggests that in certain demographics, a majority of women are for Trump.
So why muddy the waters, weaken the argument, and divide the resistance with “The Women’s March” when we could have gone with “The People’s March” or even better “The Workers March!”
Footnote: I just read an article in the Wall Street Journal reporting that the new contract between the union workers at a manufacturing plant in Kentucky has resulted in the workers accepting a $12 an hour wage. These are the people we need marching. These are the people who voted for Trump and most felt abandoned by our party and it’s “Woman’s March”.
