I thought safety pins were the most ludicrous symbol of political protesting ever used.

However, that stupidity has been completely surpassed by the Pussy-Hat.

Let me give you a little background on the latest social justice buffoonery. As savvy Legal Insurrection readers may be aware, a “Million Women March” is being planned in conjunction with Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration festivities. It has wisely been rebranded “Women’s March on Washington” (as I suspect the final count will be slightly shy of 1,000,000 participants).

Reviewing its mission statement, it is obvious that the organizers are tediously propagating the standard fare of progressive gender justice inanity.

The rhetoric of the past election cycle has insulted, demonized, and threatened many of us – immigrants of all statuses, Muslims and those of diverse religious faiths, people who identify as LGBTQIA, Native people, Black and Brown people, people with disabilities, survivors of sexual assault – and our communities are hurting and scared. We are confronted with the question of how to move forward in the face of national and international concern and fear.

In the spirit of democracy and honoring the champions of human rights, dignity, and justice who have come before us, we join in diversity to show our presence in numbers too great to ignore. The Women’s March on Washington will send a bold message to our new government on their first day in office, and to the world that women’s rights are human rights. We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.

What better attire to wear to this event than than the “Pussy-Hat”? I do think it sets the proper tone for their movement!

The organizers of the “Pussyhat Project” are based out of southern California. In fact, one of them is involved in reworking the “Dukes of Hazzard” with female leads. Their goal is lofty:

The Women’s March on Washington D.C. is happening January 21, 2017! The Pussyhat Project launched Thanksgiving weekend! As of now, we have 30 days to knit, crochet, and sew 1.17 million pink pussyhats. Join the movement!

Progressives are using their outrage at Donald Trump’s use of the word “pussy” 10 years ago as their justification to foist this insanity on fellow feminists.

“It’s wonderful to see younger women embrace the term pussy, the color pink, and the power of the handmade and take all of those pejorative terms that have been used to put us in our place and use them to form some sort of communal power,” said [Celia] McCarthy, who lives in Berkeley and is the co-owner of Piedmont Yarn in Oakland.

The hats can be registered on the Pussyhat Project website. The organizers claim that an astonishing number of these creations are now available.

While it is impossible to know exactly how many people are participating in the project, [organizer Krista] Suh thinks there are between 30,000 to 100,000 pussy hats already made. Around 60,000 people have looked at that pattern posted on the website, with more looking at the website. There have been thousands of tweets and more than 2,000 Instagram photos. One woman wrote on Instagram about a 99-year-old who was knitting hats for marchers. A Pennsylvania woman has made close to 100 pussy hats and is selling them for $15 on Etsy.

I predict that Donald Trump, if he notices this protest at all, will have a hearty laugh and a clever tweet over these hats.

I also suspect that more women will be paying attention to the stylish attire being worn by Melania and Ivanka Trump, and that the sales for Ivanka’s tasteful and affordable collection will increase. They will probably respond to the pink hats with a combination of head-shakes, face-palms, and eye-rolls.

However, I am saddened to see women acting so ridiculously in the name of women’s rights…especially as progressives have taken to trampling on those rights for certain women.
