Hundreds of thousands of liberals are proving that they don’t want unity and are not willing to work for unity as they take to the streets of Washington DC to protest the inauguration of Donald Trump. They are unwilling to compromise or accept the legal election and inauguration of Trump.
While the protests on Inauguration Day turned violent – police in riot gear were called out to disperse angry crowds that were smashing the window of downtown businesses – the number of people on the streets protesting the Trump administration on Friday is far smaller than what is expected on Saturday.
Mega-rallies are being planned in the District of Columbia and across the country the day after the inauguration. One, the Millennials March, is hoping to round up at least 1 million protesters.
But that rally is likely to be dwarfed by the Women’s March, which is being billed as a rally to defend women’s rights after what organizers described as an election cycle filled with offensive rhetoric. Organizers say that the march, which will have tandem events in over 250 cities across the country, is in opposition to the new administration’s potential impact on women’s rights.
“As witnessed by the recent election, there has been a profound deepening of the divisions in our country,” said a statement from organizers of the Women’s March on Washington. “Etched in history; these divisions cleave us from one another across the lines of racial, ethnic, religious, and sexual identity. We seek to address these divisions and stand together in the face of injustice. Together, we will raise our voices in the service of all people.”
