    I considered going to this to check it out, see what people were doing, since it's in my neck of the woods, eh, why not?

    However, after hitting up some conservative sites and reading the comments promising violence in word and deed against a bunch of women peaceably marching on DC, I opted to stay home.

    It's not like I can wear a sign saying, "I'm not part of this, just checking it out" because the very fact that I'm female could ensure some jackass, if bent on punishment, would have a "good enough" reason to take a swing or a give a shove. Given my spine of glass, all it would take is one chicken-*** sucker punch to the back of my head or a hard push to wind me up in the hospital again.

    These were men (albeit it's the internet, so who knows) who were promising actual physical violence against women because...why? God forbid a bunch of blue-haired uppity lesbian liberals dare have a march in DC the day after the inauguration? Because they want to be heard, about whatever, and they're...not allowed?

    What's the deal?

    I truly can't fathom where this nastiness comes from. Again, it's the internet, so big talkers, but the undercurrent of hatred and disdain was damn near palpable.

    Mostly talk I would imagine. Keyboard commandos. It's a losing situation to harass women in any way (even the internet), as it should be. As they say in Washington, the optics suck. That said, I'd watch on TV. MSNBC will be all over it.

    I've seen enough fake nooses and gay/Muslim hate crime hoaxes to
    have NO fear of violence coming from the Right based on this internet buzz.

    It is the Left that has been truly violent from Ferguson to the Trump Victory protests.
    I'd say a woman in DC has a much greater chance of being raped or murdered by a
    Democrat supporter traveling to or from the protest.

    Based upon the number of Police Departments in the vicinity of the National Mall, there most likely will be no counter protestors or trouble whatsoever. Have more trouble with pan handlers up around Union Station. It will be much ado about nothing.

    Any liberal event there's usually signs for every liberal cause under the sun. They can't resist. I'm sure it will be everything from raise the minimum wage to Trump sucks to Free Palestine and Mumia whatever his name is the cop killer

    If there is violence, it will likely be agitators funded by the left.

    Stupid unemployable liberals actually imagine that conservatives bring the violence to their riots.

    I unfortunately will be working that day, driving a charter bus load of marchers to DC. It is an overnight trip, day room in DC, pick up and go home. I posted in another thread, I hope it is about 37*F, pouring down rain, the type that just chills you to the bone.

    Well, I read through the first two pages of comments and did not see one single "Threat" you claimed in your original post.

    This brings me to the conclusion that your Original Post Stating Conservatives are planning Violence against Women protesters is a complete Fabrication and Lie, on par with the Never-Trumper Fake News crowd.

    The preceding political program was sponsored by George Soros and his Open Society Foundation, a proud partner of Black Lives Matter.-- Barack Obama, acting chairman.
