Liberal hypocrisy is nothing new — but sometimes it reaches a level where it’s hard to tell where reality ends and parody begins.
The message of an anti-gun “women’s march” just took an awkward turn, once observers realized that event organizers were being protected by armed guards.
Yes, it’s a women’s march against the NRA, kept secure by… erm… large men with guns.
According to Katie Pavlich in Townhall News, a not-so-grassroots group of protesters financed through billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s “Everytown for Gun Safety” anti-gun group marched from Fairfax, Virginia, to Washington on Friday.
Their mission: Protest gun ownership and somehow conflate gun control with feminism.
The core arguments were bumper-sticker simple and predictable, if naive. “Real men don’t need guns” and “the NRA doesn’t respect women’s rights” were two of the group’s main points, according to Pavlich’s astute summary.
There was just one glaring problem.
“Turns out a number of Women’s March leaders are walking with armed security and protective vehicles,” Townhall reported.
A series of photographs posted by reporters on Twitter showed the organizers of the anti-gun march conspicuously flanked by large, armed bodyguards.
“NRA2DOJ: ‘Real Men Don’t Need Guns.’ Also NRA2DOJ: Men with guns are protecting the leaders of the women’s march. Nuclear level hypocrisy,” wrote Cameron Gray, who covered the protest.

Multiple pictures and eyewitness reports confirmed the presence of armed men dutifully protecting the feminist, anti-gun gaggle.

“Leftist agitators like Linda Sarsour and Shannon Watts hiring armed protection while demanding the rest of us turn in our guns into government bureaucrats is nothing new,” Pavlich explained.
“Watts does the same every time she shows up to protest at the NRA annual meeting. Former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who pays Watts millions to take away the Second Amendment rights of everyday Americans, doesn’t go anywhere without his security detail,” she continued.
As you might have guessed, Pavlich wasn’t convinced by the radical feminist talking points. She must not be a “real woman.”
Neither, then, is conservative journalist and gun owner Dana Loesch, who used a Twitter post to expertly show the violent left-wing radicals behind the protest for who they really are.

“The man behind the so-called peaceful, tolerant and non-violent women’s march organizers,” explained Loesch, before showcasing the true faces of militant liberalism, including Louis Farrakhan.
Liberals could learn a lot from women like Loesch and Pavlich. The NRA and the gun rights it supports serve as the “great equalizer” that allows all American citizens — including women — to protect themselves.
Ironically, the organizers of these protests know that guns actually do protect life… and that’s exactly why they insist on armed guards while prancing around on their moral high horses.
