At the London conference six months ago, Philip Davies MP (C, Shipley) gave a speech on the Justice Gender Gap, in which he made some well-reasoned points about ‘feminist zealots’. A few weeks later the Guardian decided to mount an attack on him, with the aim of having the whip withdrawn, in which event he’d no longer have been a Conservative MP. It failed spectacularly. James Delingpole’s article for Breitbart was particularly memorable, and titled, “Feminazi Zealots Adopt Feminazi Zealot Tactics To Get An MP Sacked For Pointing Out Their ‘Zealotry.'”
A group named ‘Shipley Feminist Zealots’ was formed. Feminists are nothing if not utterly predictable.
Davies’s local paper, the Telegraph & Argus, yesterday published online an account of an anti-Trump and anti-Davies march past Davies’s office. The Google Alert mentioned 1,200 marchers, while the published piece claimed 1,500. Both numbers appear to be gross overestimates, judging by the six accompanying photographs.
In the photographs, the geniuses – feminist zealots and other silly women, manginas, children – can be seen carrying placards with the following:
WE MARCH FORWARDS, NOT BACKWARDS (Shame. Marching backwards would have been altogether more entertaining. The ‘K’ in ‘backwards’ is replaced with a Swastica.)
A WOMAN’S PLACE IS IN THE STRUGGLE (the struggle for a loss of rights, to give gender equality with men?)
A WOMAN’S PLACE IS IN THE RESISTANCE
I AM WOMAN, HEAR ME ROAR (I am woman, hear me whine, more like.)
HEAR OUR VOICE
STICK TOGETHER, SISTERS
WOMEN’S MARCH: SISTER MARCH BY SHIPLEY FEMINIST ZEALOTS
OUR BODIES, OUR MINDS, OUR POWER
LOVE TRUMPS HATE
SHAME ON YOU, TRUMP & DAVIES
An excerpt from the article:
Jenny Wilson, of the Zealots group who helped organise the march, said: “I think it’s brilliant to have that turnout for a march in a small town like Shipley.
“It means something to have that type of turnout.
“People have travelled from Calderdale, North Yorkshire and Leeds to take part.”
The distance from Calderdale to Shipley is 12 miles, from Leeds to Shipley 13 miles. People travelled from 20 countries to attend the London conference, from as far away as Australia (11,000+ miles). Anti-feminist zealots go to so much more effort than feminist zealots.
The end of the article:
In an open letter to the group, Mr Davies said he has only ever argued for men and women to be treated equally. He has offered to meet the group, which they have accepted.
I wonder if Davies will be selling tickets to that spectacle?
