Maybe Next Year Forget About that Commie Holiday!

I see that both McDonald’s (they have the best sweet tea in town, followed closely by Chick-fil-A) and Melania/Ivanka Trump were criticized for their tweets celebrating International Women’s Day yesterday.

“Hey , maybe instead of a cheap PR stunt where you make the M a W to ‘support’ women, you do something real — like paying your workers a living wage,” tweeted Democratic Coalition Executive Director Nathan Lerner. He was far from the only one criticizing the move:

Responses to the posting included, “You can start by paying a fair wage to your sweat shop workers in China. Better yet, have your products manufactured in the US,” and, “if actions speak louder than words then you need to sit this one out.

I actually agree with the last part of that second critical tweet!  IWD is a commie holiday started in Russia by Lenin himself and was “celebrated” in the captive nations of Eastern Europe (now fighting the new prison house of nations, to paraphrase Lenin – the EU) and then blessed by the United Nations in 1975.  (The UN thing ought to be the last straw!)

Although International Women’s Day had started with action from the women’s labor movement in the U.S., it took on a truly revolutionary form in Russia in 1917.

Just as Zetkin’s idea was spreading through Europe, Russia (where International Women’s Day was established in 1913) was facing unrest for other reasons too. It was against the backdrop of a country exhausted by war, widespread food shortages and escalating popular protest that the nation’s 1917 International Women’s Day demonstration was held on Feb. 23 of that year — the equivalent of March 8 in the Russian calendar, indicating the significance of the date of the commemorations today.

Time magazine is right (in spite of itself) and I have also blogged on this “holiday”.  it’s a commie holiday and no patriotic American ought to partake.  Sit out IWD next year!

    International Women’s Day actually should be the one day of the year that women “get out in that kitchen and rattle those pots and pans.” Do some laundry. Mend a shirt. Iron. Cook a meal. Etc. Then take the rest of the year off.

    Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
