On July 4, the Women's March organization sent out an email on America's Independence Day with the subject "F*ck the Fourth."
The email read, "This year, you won’t see us wearing red, white, and blue. We’re wearing green and asking people to show up at their local courthouses to protest the decimation of our rights."
The Women's March began in 2017 as an intersectional reactionary response to the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States. It was founded by Teresa Shook and Linda Sarsour, who eventually had to step down because of her open anti-Semitism.
The email's contempt for July 4th centered around the recent Supreme Court overturn of Roe v. Wade and focused on a future "Day of Rage at the White House on July 9th."
The email was soliciting donations for a jail fund for this future "Day of Rage" and continued with "How can we celebrate independence in this country when five unelected judges, three of who were appointed by a president who lost the popular vote, can strip the fundamental right to control our own bodies from millions?"
The email's bulkiest plea for donations came with, "we know exactly who this decision will hurt the most. Black women who already experience a maternal mortality rate 2.9 times higher than white women; Latina, Indigenous, AAPI, and all women of color who face discrimination and systemic barriers to health care; nonbinary and trans folks who already face stigmas and large barriers to accessing health care; and low-income women who do not have the resources to cross state lines for an abortion."
The Women's March has embraced intersectional narratives of victimhood and hierarchies of oppression in the past, such as the time they forbade Handmaid's Tale imagery at their protests because it was used by too many white women.
Other Leftists have exercised their American enshrined right to free speech and embraced the phrase "F*ck the Fourth" this Independence Day, all parroting some variation of the Women's March's narrative on the day.
"Today was never meant for us. It’s okay not to celebrate a declaration, written by slave owners, that says 'all men are created equal.'"
The Women's March is quoting the American Declaration of Independence which reads, "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
According to the Library of Congress, "Within the context of the times it is clear that 'all men' was a euphemism for 'humanity.'"The Women's March did give their subscribers permission to embrace comfort and leisure on July 4 with "see friends and family, enjoy time outdoors, & rest up."
