24 Funny and Clever Signs From This Weekend’s Women’s March That Prove Protest Comes With Puns

By Nina / lundi 22 janvier 2018 10:00
Last Saturday, women in the United States and their allies around the world rallied to express their grievances with the government. Though it may be a serious cause, the way they expressed their FMLs on their signs was quite funny.

If there were one word to describe the state of the union these days, it’s contentious. However you lean, chances are you’ve got a bone to pick with someone else. For example, hundreds of thousands of women marched in US cities to voice their opinions of the president and his cabinet. Their words were harsh, but whether you stand with or against the current administration, their wit is undeniable.

Here are some of the best signs from the Women’s March:

1. Or as others said, "a woman's place is in the resistance"

2. And a fandom would never have been born.

3. This one's tough.

4. A pretty general sentiment.

5. Good thing there were thousands of signs.

6. The eloquence of this one is stunning. This child knows how to make an argument.

7. Maybe, just maybe...

8. Gettin' seussical.

9. In the hallowed words of Whoopi:

10. Though just as easily broken.

11. 10/10 execution

12. WWJD?

13. Don't mess with Lady Liberty.

14. Murdered by words.

15. Good boy!

16. He's making the kids uncomfortable.

17. Take a look to your left. Now take a look to your right.

18. Surfacing for the cause.

19. Concise.

20. 

21. The sound of it is something quite atrocious.

22. And in excellent health.

23. You get what you deserve.

24. My personal favorite dystopian comment.

If that were true, Donald would have been laughed out of the primary. Literally every candidate had better qualifications and better ideas. Yes, even Ben Carson, the guy who thinks that the Pyramids were grain silos. Donald won because emotion beats reason in pretty much every area of human interaction, facts be damned and because people would rather believe easy lies than hard truths.

Possibly because a child who most likely has NO idea about what she's doing is being brought to a woman's rights march. I may be a new father and new to the rules and what not but even I know that's a bad idea.

I took my kids on a demo to protest a fascist candidate getting to the second round of the election in France. I explained what it was about and we made a sign together. Recently we were reminiscing about it and they agreed that it was the point at which they started to grasp a thing or two about politics.

Some demos turn violent, but you know what, my parents would always ring up and say I hope you weren't in that demo, and I'd say, of course I was. And there was no violence anywhere I looked. One guy throws a brick through a window and the cameras of the world are right there, and it's as if the millions of peaceful protestors don't exist.

I'm not from your country and the media didn't cover much of Donald Trump's speeches, but I've often heard it alleged that Trump lied. So I've asked for examples.
I've checked 8 so far. Every single claim I've heard of Donald 'lying' has turned out to wrong. For example: "I spoke with the President of the Virgin Islands" is NOT a lie, it's a misspeaking where the meaning "Governor" is utterly clear in context. There was no attempt to deceive. A misspeaking is not a lie, and pretending it is, is insane literalism.
Every other allegation of lying I've checked so far has also been stupid 'gotcha's' or misrepresentations.
So can somebody give me an example of a lie that is not just somebody's differing opinion, insane literalism or stupid 'gotcha'?

Ok so we have marches for woman who are tired of being treated the way they have been treated. very good stand up for your rights as a human to be treated equally with a man I applaud your efforts. But whatever happen to the March for Jesus? What happened with that?

The Women's March might actually be a good cause, if they weren't lead by Donna Hylton and Linda Sarsour, and actually bothered to protest against women's treatment under Sharia Law. Until then, the Women's March is just a joke.
