Crazed Leftist Women's March Protesters in 10 Cities Think Trump's Presidency Is a 'Handmaid's Tale'
This weekend, hundreds of thousands of women took to the streets to protest against President Donald Trump, and many of them donned costumes inspired by the Hulu series "The Handmaid's Tale." This echoed pro-abortion protesters who dressed up in similar costumes to oppose restrictions on abortion.
Leftists have increasingly adopted a "Handmaid's Tale" theme in their opposition to Donald Trump. Many have claimed that Trump's presidency represents a misogynistic regime not dissimilar to the dystopia in the Hulu series (and the book by Margaret Atwood on which it is based).
In the show and the book, a repressive government twists one particular Bible passage into an anti-woman regime, kicking women out of their jobs, removing their property, and forcing them to be systematically raped to bear children. This Leftist fantasy has no connection with what evangelical Christians actually believe, what pro-life activists push for, or what Trump himself has done in office.
Nevertheless, they repeated the tired old narrative this weekend — in at least ten cities. Here they are.
1. Austin, Texas.
As the Women's March headed to the Texas State Capitol in Austin, former state senator Wendy Davis led the way, followed by a group of handmaids.
2. Chicago, Ill.
Women at the Chicago Women's March dressed up as handmaids and held signs reading, "We [are not] your vessels," "Women's rights are NOT for sale! We won't live the handmaid's tale," and "Wanted: The sexual predator-in-chief and whole Trump/Pence regime must go!" Lovely...
3. Denver, Colo.
These three protesters in Colorado's capital city of Denver carried on the "Handmaid's Tale" attack, two dressed as handmaids, and one carrying a sign based on the dystopian story. One woman directly connected the "Handmaid's Tale" angle to the issue of abortion with a sign reading, "My body, my rules. Don't tread on me," with a uterus.
