Across the country and on every continent, an estimated 2.5 million people (made up of mostly women) rallied in major cities to protest Donald Trump’s presidency. Why? Why do some people feel disdain for Trump while others feel joy? A woman from the United States rust belt asked on social media “Call me stupid, but what exactly are these women protesting? I mean, he is the president, so Get Over It. You lost”.
Hmm, where does one begin to tackle such an ill-informed question. Let’s start with the concept of ‘words’. Words are the culprit. Professional, respectable and over-all law abiding citizens who have a vagina don’t like being called “nasty”, simply because, well, they have a vagina. And most women don’t like hearing that a man may feel inclined to “grab them by the pussy” if they are, for example, at work or simply walking to school or to their vehicle and in doing so, grabbing their dignity, their human rights and their sovereignty. Let’s just stop there; for to list the many oppressive statements that have spewed from Trump’s hateful sewer-mouth aimed at destroying “others”, is much much too long and not worth repeating.
Words are important. Les mots sont importants. Las palabras son importantes. Le parole sono important. However one says it and in whatever language one says it in, words are the essential tools that individuals use to communicate. Words have power. The “right” words can mean the difference between being misunderstood or being clear in your communications. Life coach and motivational speaker Tony Robbins teaches the mantra that “the quality of one’s life is determined by the quality of one’s communication”.
A conscious person therefore, who is aware of the Law of Mentalism (the first of seven Immutable Universal Laws that states that everything we see and experience in our physical world has its origin in the invisible, mental realm) chooses words that inspire and ultimately lead others through the choice of positive expression. And then, there is the unconscious person who does not choose his/her words, for they are not aware to do so. These lost souls are in circular reaction mode. Unaware that they are indeed colonized, corporations, government, spouses, advertisers, and product marketing strategists dominate the mental realms of this woeful and sordid crew, also known as “trump supporters”.
Charlatan, reality TV personality and serial businessman Donald Trump represents this colonization perfectly. He was inaugurated as the 45th president of the United States, beating a very qualified political competitor Hillary Clinton, in what some people believe to be a demonstration of classic misogyny. “The most under-qualified man was able to beat the most qualified woman for the highest job in the nation- commander in chief of the USA,” a passionate Los Angeles marcher told DGC. Thousands took to the streets of Washington, Los Angeles, New York, Tennessee, Austin and Dallas Texas, Seattle, Paris, Chicago, Nairobi, Kenya, San Francisco, Belgrade, France, Jackson and Gulfport, Mississippi, Durban, South Africa, Philadelphia, Melbourne, Australia, Tbilisi, Georgia, Boston, London, Atlanta, Ajijic, Mexico, Denver, Budapest, Vancouver, Canada, Amsterdam, Brazil, Alaska, Idaho, Brussels, Toronto, Honolulu, Nashville, New Zealand, St. Paul, South Carolina, Part City, Utah, Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Florence, Italy, Springfield, Missouri, Santiago, Chile, Portland, Oregon, Prague, Kahului, Hawaii, Erbil, Iraq, Lincoln, Nebraska, Connecticut, Tel Aviv, Savannah, Georgia, Cleveland, Las Vegas, Rome, Cape Town, Antarctica, Barcelona, Spain, Jacksonville, Florida, Wisconsin, Lisbon, New Orleans, Geneva, Switzerland, Marseille, France, Wilmington, North Carolina, Oslo, Cheyenne, Wyoming, Berlin, Trenton, New Jersey, Montreal, Michigan, Bogota, Columbia, Athens, Georgia, Memphis, Finland, Madrid, Guam, Costa Rica, Ghana, Pittsburg, Stockholm, Athens, Bangkok and Dublin, all carrying signs and chanting “Not My President”.
When a person uses words to suppress, discourage and ultimately destroy others, the only way to combat such an assault through the power of words, is to have or demonstrate compassion. Easier said than done.
“Of all the evils for which man has made himself responsible, none is so degrading, so shocking or so brutal as his abuse of the better half of humanity, the female sex.” – Mahatma Gandhi
On January 21st, 2017- conscious women gathered collectively around the world to show solidarity and its by-product compassion, by rallying together in peace and marching through the streets. However, some celebrities, like singer Madonna, who voiced frustration at the Washington, D.C. march by saying “Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House”, was later “crucified” by trump supporters on social media that echoed versions of “she should be arrested on counts of treason”. However, not one person was arrested, killed or injured in any of the peaceful protest around the world. And the 54% of Caucasian women who did not attend the marches, who voted to keep women and themselves oppressed, to keep misogyny alive and well, are unfortunately colonized by their male counterparts, i.e., their husbands and fathers. These are the lost ones.
To the lady in the rust-belt and your like-minded femmes who have yet to awaken and thus who have yet to shake the chains of misogyny, you will. The Mutable Law of Polarity governs you to do so even if you don’t know it yet. In the meantime, former US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright said it best: “There is a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women”.
Now, be a good little wifey and go make your man a sandwich. Your daughters can thank us later.
