The Women’s March in DC this weekend was a shadow of its former self, with a much smaller crowd. Perhaps all the far left craziness and anti-Semitic Israel bashing turned people off.

Smaller Crowds Turn Out for Third Annual Women’s March Events
Whether it was stormy weather, reports of controversy or the simple waning of interest over time, the third annual Women’s March events on Saturday attracted much smaller crowds than in years past.
In Washington, in a frigid marble plaza only blocks from the White House, early attendees at first seemed to be outnumbered by barkers hawking T-shirts and buttons.
“I’m disappointed. It’s definitely not the turnout I was looking for,” said Peggy Baron, 53, a lawyer from Dublin, Ohio, who said that the first Washington march two years ago had been “wall-to-wall women.”…
“I came two years ago. It’s definitely smaller, but the spirit is very much alive,” said Rachel Stucky, 53, an educator from Salem, Ore. She added: “The experience I had two years ago was indescribable. I wanted to feel that way again.”
The events around the country were partly a celebration of what has been achieved since the first march. An unprecedented number of women have been elected to Congress, many with the help of women who became politically active for the first time after marching in 2017.
The leaders of this movement are becoming toxic, and some of the women they helped elect to Congress are already showing how radical they are. This event will probably look very different a year from now.
