Since the first Women's March on Washington to protest the Misogynist-in-Chief Donald Trump went so well, what with all the pussy hats and vagina costumes and unhinged celebrities shouting profanities, a “general strike” of women has been organized to keep the momentum going.
One of the principal organizers of the first march was Islamic activist Linda Sarsour; this time one of the organizers of the "Day Without a Woman" and an author of a manifesto calling for a “new wave of militant feminist struggle” is an actual convicted Palestinian terrorist.
The New York Post reports that Rasmea Yousef Odeh spent 10 years in prison for her part in two terrorist bombings in Israel in 1970, one of which killed two students while they were shopping. She then managed to become a U.S. citizen in 2004 by lying about her past, but she was convicted in 2014 of immigration fraud. Then she won the right to a new trial, set for this spring, by claiming she had been suffering from PTSD at the time she lied on her application. Riiight. Not only that, but she worked for a while as an ObamaCare navigator.
Another co-author of the aforementioned militant manifesto is the infamous Angela Davis, Communist professor and former Black Panther. Davis has managed to become an eminence grise among the academic radical left despite (or more likely because of) her participation in a courtroom shootout in the early '70s that resulted in the death of a judge. She celebrated her acquittal in the subsequent trial by going to Cuba.
A third co-author, Tithi Bhattacharya, praised Maoism in an essay for the International Socialist Review, noting that “Maoists are back in the news and by all accounts they are fighting against all the right people” - by which she means that Maoists have found their way onto “the terrorist list of the US State Department, Canada, and the European Union."
The Post notes that the International Women’s Strike is meant to be a "grass-roots affair" -- meaning Astroturfed by George Soros and other elements of the radical left. Women across the country will be urged to walk off their jobs and join in local protests.
According to a Guardian piece on the Day Without a Woman, women are encouraged to spend their day “blocking roads, bridges, and squares, abstaining from domestic, care and sex work” and “boycotting” pro-Trump businesses, all while wearing red in solidarity. There will be pussy hats galore, no doubt.
