Celebrity Lives Matter!!!

Who made the decision that an 82-year-old woman with ties to the CIA was the best person to speak for feminism?

Who decided that taking Henry Kissinger's cock was an act of peace?

The eternal embarrassment that is Gloria Steinem showed up Saturday on stage at a so-called Women's March (Michael Moore's a woman) and wanted America to know a few things.

Her involvement in the CIA pursuit, capture and execution of Che?

Hell no, she'll never talk about that.

She'll lie about that the same way she lies about never having been involved with War Criminal Henry Kissinger.

How fitting that she became the face of the fake ass Women's Marches across the country on Saturday.

For those who don't know, this White women's march began by attempting to obliterate the accomplishments of African-Americans.

As Brittany Oliver explained last November:

As a Black woman, I am once again let down by people who call themselves feminists. I have been marginalized by the movement and now, my guard is up. 
Despite my posts being deleted from the national Facebook event page, I've continued to be very vocal in my disappointment in the political co-optation of the "One Million Women," now known as the "March on Washington" scheduled for January 21, 2017 in Washington D.C.
In the beginning, the march was named "One Million Woman," and soon after being made aware you were co-opting a march led by Black women in 1997, then you decided to change the name to "March on Washington." Well, this was another Black-led march that advocated for civil rights and culminated Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech in 1963. 
Overall, you all have co-opted the messaging of these two very important historical moments in Black history and it's unfortunate because it's becoming increasingly difficult to preserve Black activism. Politically co-opting efforts with "ALL WOMEN" and "ALL VOICES" is merely an attempt to erase the specific needs of people of African descent. 

But still they march . . .

Ashley Judd, daughter of noted racist Naomi Judd, most infamous for her own attacks on African-American male artists, took to the stage because her voice has apparently been denied.  Magazine and TV interviews hadn't been enough to feed her own ego, so she needed to be on stage Saturday to ensure that her elite voice was heard.

Across the country, various celebrities took to the stage.

Because this is all about celebrity, right?

It's not about helping the powerless.

It's about pampered celebrities taking the stage to yammer on and on.

Madonna, for example, 'thrilled' DC with her thoughts of blowing up the White House.

Well what else can a woman worth millions offer to We The People?

Not much.

Which is why she should have never been on stage.

Jane Fonda, go down the list, none of these women should have been speaking onstage.

That especially includes Ms. Michael Moore.

USA TODAY serves up their take on the most memorable quotes from the speeches in DC.

They serve up 8 people -- all celebs.

Is this a political movement or an episode of Robin Leach's LIFESTYLES OF THE RICH & FAMOUS?

Where were the women who weren't celebrities?

And where were the women expressing real concerns?

As Malika Michaud (JET) observed ahead of the marches:

The resistance for unification seems to lie in women of color questioning the White women’s loyalty. Historically, white women have failed to provide successful coalitions with women of other races unless it affected them (such fighting for their right to vote after Black men were granted this opportunity.) It’s unknown if the women protesting strongly feel like Black Lives Matter or if Black women should receive equal pay to White women, let alone men. There’s no guarantee that they care about the progression of the Black family, educational or health resources in low-income, predominantly Black and Hispanic neighborhoods.

After the marches?

We're left with the fact that Barbara Sostaita (FEMINISTING) predicted exactly what would take place.

We're also left with the fact that, yet again, it turns out this was an 'action' with big money behind it.

Right from the NYT of all places: Soros funds 56 of the groups partaking in . So much for "grassroots".

As ZERO HEDGE, Asra Nomani  reported:

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 (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.)
Another Soros grantee and march “partner” is the Arab-American Association of New York, whose executive director, Linda Sarsour, is a march co-chair. When I co-wrote a piece, arguing that Muslim women don’t have to wear headscarves as a symbol of “modesty,” she attacked the coauthor and me as “fringe.” 

Earlier, at least 33 of the 100 “women of color,” who initially protested the Trump election in street protests, worked at organizations that receive Soros funding, in part for “black-brown” activism. Of course, Soros is an “ideological philanthropist,” whose interests align with many of these groups, but he is also a significant political donor. In Davos, he told reporters that Trump is a “would-be dictator.”

The nonsense of Celebrity Lives Matter!!! trumped reality.

But a few did notice reality and that it included what didn't get covered:

As all eyes were on , hundreds in protested US-NATO bases on their soil. George Soros didn't fund it, so no MSM coverage.

And the protest didn't just ignore that, it ignored many, many issues.

While protesters are patting themselves on the back for turning out in force for no specific reason yesterday Flint, MI still has no water.
