Women’s March calls for General Strike and Day Without A Women

Women’s March calls for General Strike and Day Without A Women

Delusions of grandeur.

This is getting good.

The Women’s March had a good turnout. But even if you use the wildest stats, it turned out about 2.5 million people nationwide, or less than 1 percent of the population.

And that was under incredibly favorable circumstances — a Saturday so no one had to miss work, the day after the Inauguration, glowing media fawning, and a coalition of several dozen organizing groups including unions, who provided buses and other logistical support.

The organizers have even bigger plans. A General Strike, and a Day Without A Women.

National strikes don’t work, at least not in the U.S. We just have too many people for even 1 or 2 million people to make a difference by going on strike unless they control vital services, like airports, trains, etc. But that’s not going to happen here, the pussy-hat wearing Women’s marchers (male and female) could all take the day off, and it wouldn’t make a difference.

Jezebel, however, is really excited, noting that there is no date on the calendar yet, though some activists are focusing on March 8:

[a] women’s strike on March 8 that would be positioned “against male violence and in defense of reproductive rights” ….

Stay tuned, comrades!

Yes, I will stay tuned.

Including as to how the Women’s March is being hijacked by anti-Israel activists, like Linda Sarsour, and Rasmea Odeh.

Yes, THAT Rasmea Odeh, the one convicted of killing Edward Joffe and Leon Kanner at the SuperSol supermarket in Jerusalem in 1969, and who now is on trial in Detroit for immigration fraud.

Algemeiner reports:

A convicted Palestinian terrorist was among the eight feminist activists who called earlier this week on American women to join a March 8 international strike — which organizers are calling a protest “against male violence and in defense of reproductive rights.” ….

In a Guardian op-ed published on Monday — attention to which was brought on social media by investigative journalist and author Gary Weiss — Odeh, joined by Linda Martín Alcoff, Cinzia Arruzza, Tithi Bhattacharya, Nancy Fraser, Barbara Ransby, Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor and Angela Davis, wrote that the goal of the planned protest is to “mobilize women, including trans women, and all who support them in an international day of struggle — a day of striking, marching, blocking roads, bridges, and squares, abstaining from domestic, care and sex work, boycotting, calling out misogynistic politicians and companies, striking in educational institutions…Let us use the occasion of this international day of action to be done with lean-in feminism and to build in its place a feminism for the 99%, a grassroots, anti-capitalist feminism — a feminism in solidarity with working women, their families and their allies throughout the world.”

As reported by The Algemeiner on Monday, Odeh will be a featured speaker at the upcoming Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) 2017 National Member Meeting — set to be held in Chicago from March 31 to April 2.

A day without a socialist, communist, and terrorist woman?

That’s a movement I could support. But could we make it a year?

Oh noes!! This could well be an Extinction Level Event!

    That’s the Plan: a Dodo Dynasty.

    Denying individual dignity and debasing human life are just icing on political progress.

      I wonder how many of them are smart enough to even know they’re stealing Aristophanes’ 2500 year old ideas, ie “Lysistrata”.

      I think his efforts will stand the test of time much better then theirs will.

A whole day without THESE women? Is that a promise??

What happens when no one notices they are gone?

    This should be a pretty dilemma for the press. The point, the purpose, and the conduct of such a strike imply that either…

    …the press will get their publications and news-feeds out without the help or assistance of women (since their female employees will be joining the strike), which raises the question of how vital women are to the news organizations, or…

    …there will be no press or news reports for the day, since women are so vital to every operation and their participation in the strike kept the news organizations from accomplishing their tasks, which means that the strike will have zero publicity, or…

    …the news organizations will be exposed as hotbeds of scabs and/or hypocrites for coddling and excusing all these women who are very vital to producing the daily news (keep an eye open for the bylines in the news articles) or…

    …it will all be exposed and conducted as just another self-important fever-dream.

    Oh, they’ll find some beta in the Bronx that will give a nasally pitch on how miserable he is because he had to wait in line longer at the deli. I asked my wife if she’d participate. She gave me the look, you know, her look that expresses the contempt of a thousand mothers, and said, “If you think I’m giving you a day off, you’ve got another thing coming Buster.” BTW, my name is not “Buster.”

    But honestly, I could go for a day without women somewhere between once a month and once a week. Don’t mistake me, I love women. But they’re better in defined doses.

Gee,I hope they don’t give us the Silent Treatment, cause that would really hurt. :/

    This reminded me of the title of a book by the comedian Ron White, about his run ins with the law as a teen in small town West Texas – “I had the Right to Remain Silent, but Not the Ability!”

So while the feminists are on strike, the men can ride motorcycles and have sex with skinny long-legged big breasted women and hunt and fish and race cars and go to strip bars and date women half their age and drink whisky, beer, and Captain Morgans and never hear bitching and never pay child support or alimony and leave the toilet seat up and keep their houses and fancy cars and golf clubs and eat spam and chips and beans and blow enormous farts and never get cheated-on while they are at work and all their friends and family would think they were cool and they had tons of money in the bank.

Let them wear Hijab

They can strike and march and swear and cry and blah, blah, blah, but Donald Trump will still be president of the United States.

I’ll give them two days instead of one and if they don’t show up, I’ll take the trepidation back to where I rented it from and go back to business as usual.

Not married.

Just make my sandwich the day before.

Aw jeez … looks like I’ll have to make my own coffee on 3/8. (Grinning, ducking and running …) 😉

I wonder how many men and women fail to appreciate equal and complementary. How many fail to reconcile moral, natural, and personal imperatives. Or simply refuse the effort in a narcissistic haze.

Revitalization. Rehabilitation. Reconciliation. is a clear, and, apparently, progressive threat to the establishment.

And the most insidious woman of all:

Indict him.

Hold on there! Rasmea Odeh is going to be a featured speaker at the Jewish Voice for Peace 2017 National Member Meeting? What little credibility they had as a Jewish organization, a number statistically indistinguishable from zero anyway, just vanished. It has been clear for years that they are as Jewish as Mahmoud Abbas but leftists have had a hard time seeing that as it is the truth … and we all know how much trouble they have with that!

This makes as much sense as having Adolf Hitler as the Honorary Chairman of the Anti-Defamation League!

A day of peace and quiet …

Nah, won’t happen. They’re just teasing.

I could do a year or two without a Woman…
Maybe I could get something done.

Ya know, every one of them thinks they are the only ones that are outfitted with the stuff they have.
Should we even bother breaking the news?

What is this? A threat, a tease or a promise? Come on liberals…all we ask for is a little consistency!!! 🙂

LOL. I predict this will work out as well as the “day without illegal aliens” did a few years ago.

When these women get fired by their employer for skipping work, they’re going to blame their problems on white patriarchy. Women like that probably don’t make good sandwiches anyway so no big loss to most men.

When no one misses them, will they be upset….and strike?

I doubt that the women in my life will participate. Which, nationwide, is likely to be the case. Most of us aren’t going to notice this boycott, or whatever it is, except for the breathless reporting of it by our, increasingly irrelevant, national media.

Lysistrata or ISIStrata?: Women in Germany would like “A Day without a Woman,” too, because of the burgeoning incidence of sexual assault by recent émigrés from the Middle East, South Asia and Africa. (Soeren Kern, “Germany’s Migrant Rape Crisis: January 2017, gatestoneinstitute.org, Feb. 13, 2017)

while they are standing, could they make us all samiches? 😎

Nothing Democrat shitlibs do is designed to improve anybody’s life. A few years ago they started burning down cities. On inauguration day they rioted and destroyed property. In Berkeley and NYU they rioted and destroyed property to stop men from talking. They dress up like vaginas to protest AGAINST democracy. BLM stops traffic to inconvenience innocent people.

Now these kooks want to disrupt more people’s lives with a nationwide strike. A guy from Venezuela said on Twitter people from his country riot because they can’t have an election but Democrats riot because of an election.

How does being a pain in the ass win people over? Do they think behaving like spoiled children will help them win back the heartland voters who went for Trump?

They are becoming more extreme when they probably should be moderating. No adult leadership to rein them in.

That’s a movement I could support. But could we make it a year…….AMEN Brother, ….. AMEN!

Fine with me.

Guy Fairy Tale

Once upon a time, a Prince asked a beautiful Princess…
“Will you marry me?”

The Princess said “NO!”

So then the Prince lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and went fishing and hunting and played golf and dated women half his age and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.

The End

Strike? What service or product are they withholding? I think you’ll see turnouts consisting of 10% local activists and 90% bored suburban liberal housewives.

“defense of reproductive rights.” ??? You mean the “right” to have sex, and then the “right” to kill the child that comes from that decision? Do women actually realize that to conceive a child takes a man as well, and that when you do that, you now gave up your total control over that life and your body? Such selfishness amazes me. You want sex, you have personal responsibilities to the results, and murder is not a right.

Why would anyone want to demonstrate that they are replaceable??

GREAT comment, Sally!

This sounds like when a C- student tries to get their friend who’s an A- student to skip school with them. I mean the people who organize this don’t have real jobs or own small businesses (which 9+m women do). The most they’ve ever been responsible for is the stack of pizzas in the passenger seat.

It wasn’t that long ago that women had very limited choices about what they could do with their lives, but today, many have taken advantage of those opportunities and have made the most of them. My wife is a good example, she loves what she does and is one of the top people in her field, male or female, but it took nearly 20 years of hard work and good decisions to get there.

On the other hand, lots of people have done nothing with their freedom and opportunities except to whine about how unfair everything is. Why would any self respecting women want to be a part of that?

A Day Without Women? Big deal. For many males in San Francisco, every day is a day without women. (*Wink, nudge, say no more!*)

Not a good idea to show your employer that you are replaceable. Or superfluous. Or as they say in the UK, redundant.

It’s called ‘Poker Night.’ Third Friday of every month.
