What they protested about, was not clear.
The President did not do anything yet to warrant protests.
Not that it mattered to protesters - they already made or bought their pink pussyhats and were not to be stopped, issues or no issues.
Double-amputee U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth, a military veteran pilot who lost both legs in Iraq, claimed that she did not lose her body parts for somebody to destroy our Constitution. Which part of the Constitution Donald Trump managed to destroy in his 24 hour in office, she did not mention. She simply used her veteran and amputee status to gain, by false claims, political capital - same as another military veteran did before her, Ronald Castille, who:
- Got elected as a Philadelphia, PA, District Attorney using his status as a veteran who has lost his leg in the service of his country in the military;
- Obtained multiple death sentences, some of them through fraud, as later came out in Williams v Pennsylvania (a 2016 U.S. Supreme Court case);
- Used those fraudulently obtained death sentences to get elected to the top court of the State of Pennsylvania, and then
- Blocked habeas corpus petitions to vacate those fraudulently obtained death penalty sentences, presiding over at least one of the as a judge - and, obviously, an investigation is warranted as to how many more similar cases happened, and how many people went to their deaths with the military veteran and amputee Judge Ronald Castille acting as both a (fraudster) prosecutor and a judge in their cases.
- attack the President's wife for being an immigrant, a non-native speaker of English, for marrying a rich man, for posing before her marriage in the nude (while not trying to similarly attack a federal judge for posing for Playboy during her law school years), for having her teenage son allegedly not wanting to walk with his mother holding hands (a natural behavior for a boy his age), for not making enough speeches because she is allegedly dumb or not being able to speak English - you name it, every crass thing about the First Lady was out there;
- attack the President for the size of his penis - that is a qualification for office that I was not aware of;
- asking the Presidents to get out of their uteruses and underpants - while the President did not make any attempts on either so far;
- harass the President by besieging his residence in New York City and even getting access to the building, the Trump Tower;
- mock the physical qualities of the 70-year-old president, from the size of his penis, with slogans that I refuse to republish, to the color of his hair,
- having celebrities like Madonna not only use foul language about the President, but inciting the crowd with the fighting words by sharing her dreams of blowing up the White House - for which, in my opinion, Madonna should be locked up, and it has been reported that the Secret Service will investigate Madonna for her claims to the crowd.
- had their occupational licenses revoked (at least 3 I know);
- were charged with fabricated crimes;
- their dogs were killed;
- their houses were burnt down, without an investigation;
- they were assaulted by police with police vehicles - with nobody wanting to investigate the assaults, and courts dismissing lawsuits about the assaults without legal grounds,
- attorneys are afraid to speak up or make motions to recuse corrupt or biased judges,
- readers who write to my blog with tips with requests to have their names not mentioned for fear of retaliation (which requests I honor),
- the local press who ignore issues of corruption until it erupts into an FBI investigation, and then write only sparingly and only about people who are no longer in a position of power - in that Delaware County, NY,
- get the federal grant money for adoption out of foster care; and
- to give jobs to friends, the foster care parents;
- give jobs to friends and relatives employed in DSS-friendly pet non-profits, and non-profits spawned by DSS officials; and
- to have friends and relatives of DSS officials adopt a baby who does not remember his or her parents yet.
"No, you are not fighting for my rights, nor for the real issues of discrimination against women.
Instead, I have been fighting for your rights, without any support, for many years, in and out of court, to the point of my law license suspended for fighting abusive treatment of women in court and for publicly blogging about it, for which the government tried to jail me, and I had to leave the state of New York to escape harrassment and threats.
Women I write about have names, I am writing about them, calling things as they are, as the mainstream media is afraid to do.
As to my own case, legal relief was denied to me all the way to the U.S.Supreme Court, under Obama administration, so the US Supreme Court, as of January 13, 2017, did not consider stripping, without a hearing, a female attorney for making a motion to recuse an abusive and corrupt male judge to secure for her indigent female client her constitutional right for impartial judicial review a big deal warranting the high Court's time.
3 female judges, Kagan, Sotomayor, and Ginsburg
participated in that decision, which hushed up discrimination against women in court.
I saw Ginsburg's face later carried as a banner for female rights carried by you pink-hatters.
Do you want to protest that there are no effective mechanisms to enforce women's rights in court, as exist in the Eurooean Union countries, or in countries who, unlike the U.S., permitted their citizens to sue their counties for human rights violations in the United Nation's court of human rights?
Did you join Zena Denise Crenshaw in her fight to provide this access to justice for all Americans, women included? Do you know that claims of constitutional violations usually die at the lowest court level, and, through court-invented tricks, all further appeals and civil rights actions are made futile?
Rights are as strong as their enforcement.
I describe the mechanisms of how your enforcement rights are taken away by courts.
While you are attacking the President after 1 day in office, the main culprit is not the executive branch, it is the judicial branch of the government, the one you are not protesting.
Educate yourself first, who is who and what is what in your own women's rights movement before telling other women you are fighting for us by wearing a pink hat for 1 day in the streets.
I don't see any demonstrations on the topic of discrimination and abuse of women in the legal profession and the courts, which I am publicly covering in my blog for 3 years.
Look up "Tatiana Neroni blog" on Google and look up the number of views. Over 1,200,000, on hard-core topics of legal theory and practice of constitutional law, from around the world, so, I guess, there is a need for coverage of such topics, which the mainstream media does not satisfy.
I am writing about the government handcuffing a female attorney for making a constitutional argument, or about another female attorney being stripped of her glasses, shoes, papers, pens, steapped into a wheelchair, brought into the courtroom this way and ordered by a male judge to handle her client's hearing, at the threat of losing the case for her female client, where the male judges who ordered that escaped any accountability.
I am writing about potty mouth male judges and about male judges who are sexual predators and who escape any accountability for decades, continuing to prey on women.
I am writing about a house of a female critic of corruption among the local police, social services, prosecutor's office and a judge, Barbara O'Sullivan, burnt to the ground, two dogs are killed, she and her daughter narrowly escaped death, and that is after a police officer, relative of a DA investigator tried to intentionally run her over with a police vehicle for trying to videotape his misconduct, and nobody is investigating or prosecuting the multiple attempts to kill them.
Do you want to demonstrate about that?
Because I don't see any coverage of these scary topics and no protests in the streets.
I guess, too scary a topic to show solidarity, can lead to too judicial retaliation on all levels, and that is too adverse of a consequence that women, women's organizations and the mainstream media won't touch it.
So, please, don't you dare tell me you are fighting for my rights, or for other women's rights by donning a pink hat and putting out crass slogans about the size of the President's penis.
I did not see abuse and discrimination of women in courts and denial to them of access to justice mentioned even once in those slogans of protestors shown in the media coverage by sources favorable to the protests, only about uteruses, pussies, penises and how perfect women are.
To me, such a "protest" is a disgrace and a discreditation of women's equal rights movement, especially protesting before the President even did anything wrong.
So, no, I won't thank you, now or later, and I don't need your thanks.
After you put your pink hat away after your 1-day protest, I will continue to fight discrimination against women, among other civil rights issues, through my blog, educating people about real issues."
It was a party time for you, pussy-hatters.
It was a "mission" to make a million pink hats - a mission announced since Thanksgiving - and once those hats were made, and sold, at a profit for the makers, they "had" to be used, for the political gain of the makers of the march, and that decision was made before President Trump took office or did anything in that office.
I don't know whether some protestors were paid or not, as some comments on the social media claimed.
But, I did see that many people perceived the "march" as "fun time",
protesting "women's issues" before the new President even had a chance to do anything, a "preventive" protest.
While allowing the real issues of discrimination against women - too sticky to mention out in the open - remain un-answered, and allowing the real culprits of discrimination against women remain unaccountable.
So, now you can put away your pink hats (ugly creations, by the way - made in the most fast and primitive way, I can tell you as an expert knitter since childhood) - your job has been done.
Party is over.
But, all you did is associating women's movement with nuts who address contrived issues before they emerged and engaging in vulgar conduct which has nothing to do with political protest.
And that set back women's movement years if not decades.
So, no, I will not thank you, pink pussy-hatters.
When Zena Crenshaw Logal, a female attorney disciplined for raising constitutional issues in court, reposted my statement, she's got the following comments:
And that is what I find to be the most wrong with this march - capitalizing on the REAL suffering of real women, and brainwashing them into believing that, somehow, Trump is to blame in his 1st day in office for what happened to this woman and her son during President Obama's rule.
I do not know why Sharon Duttle spent time in solitary confinement, and I do not know in which prison she went, in order to write about the prison conditions she reports.
Sharon Duttle actually answered my questions as to why she protested against Trump while all the atrocities happened to her under Obama - she did NOT protest against Trump, she was simply used by the march's organizers as a number for that protest.
Here is our discussion:
So, Sharon Duttle, a real woman with real discrimination issues, was lured into this march against the new President Donald Trump by assurances that the march is not a march of protest against the President Trump, but is a general march of protest on women's issues (coincidentally, scheduled one day after inauguration of Donald Trump, even though all the bad things happened to Sharon Duttle before Donald Trump came to office).
First, Sharon Duttle confirmed to me that the organizers told her that the protest was not against Trump:
Second, Sharon Duttle provided to me links to the guidelines for the march that, yes, is positioned only as a "women's march" and says nothing about Trump - even though its timing, and its slogans, and its speeches, and the reports about numbers were specifically as protests against Trump.
Here are the links about the Women's March that were used to lure Sharon Duttle, and other women, into an anti-Trump protest under the guise of a general-mission march for women's rights - and, if the organizers pull these materials off line, I have them saved and will republish them:
1) the "Frequently Asked Questions", and
2) what Sharon Duttle explained was given to her as a "mission" of the march.
For Sharon Duttle and her son, and, very possible, for many other women, marching was an outlet of emotions, a sharing of grief that the organizers of this march unscrupulously capitalized on - for their own political reasons.
as to why she did not protest before the Obama administration, the President under whom she and her son actually suffered those atrocities that she describes, was answered very easily - Sharon Duttle, as, I am sure, many other yesterday's protesters, were duped into believing that
they are not participating in an anti-Trump protest, while the protest was meant, held and advertised in the media as an anti-Trump protest around the world (like in the interlinked Reuters article "In challenge to Trump, women protesters swarm streets across the U.S.),
but that what they are participating in is a general-mission women's march for human rights, women's rights and "betterment" of women.
Here are other comments regarding the march:
Shame on you, the people who capitalized on real women's real miseries for getting political capital, while having no intention whatsoever to really fight for their rights - in the right places, by the right means, at the right time.
