Sometimes, albeit very rarely, political correctness and identity politics engender serendipitous results.

According to conservatives, such is the case with what happened Saturday with the Women’s March, the pro-abortion extremist group known for protesting Republicans, particularly former President Donald Trump, by decking women out in outfits from “The Handmaid’s Tale.”

“The Handmaid’s Tale” is a dystopian TV series about a world in which women essentially have no rights. Convinced that Trump was intent on making the fictional world a reality, members and supporters of the Women’s March began parading around in handmaiden outfits during his presidency.

It started with signs on the literal day that Trump was inaugurated but quickly progressed into full-blown outfits.

Returning to the present, the Women’s March scheduled nationwide protests for this Saturday to protest a recent crop of pro-life legislation, particularly the heartbeat bill in Texas. But this time, there was a catch.

In a stunning tweet posted early Saturday morning, the movement’s official Twitter account admonished its own members for wearing outfits from “The Handmaid’s Tale” because it’s apparently racist.

Look:

“Handmaid’s Tale imagery has proliferated, primarily by white women, in recent years. This message erases the fact that Black, undocumented, incarcerated, poor, & disabled women have always had their reproduction controlled in America. It’s not some dystopian future or past,” the account wrote.

In other words, the Women’s March has banned the use of handmaid outfits because political correctness has reached the point where now virtually everything is racist.

Excited by the Women’s March cancelling “The Handmaid’s Tale” outfits, conservatives jumped at the opportunity to use the same illogical political correctness and identity politics to encourage the group to go ahead and cancel itself next.

Look:

Conservatives also slammed the Women’s March for suggesting contemporary women are somehow being subjugated and that America is itself a dystopia.

Last but not least, a range of critics — some of them possibly liberal — excoriated the group for once again throwing white women under the bus.

The tweet posted by the Women’s March was part of a longer thread. The other tweets warned the women not to bring coat hangers or weapons. Conversely, they enthusiastically urged women to bring their masks, of course.
