One of the encouraging things about woke-ism, for those who are patient, is that the left-wing creed will eventually consume its creators, as even liberals can’t keep up with the insanity being propagated.

A prime example of this was seen this week with the Women’s March, an organization that in addition to billing itself as a champion of women’s rights, gifted the world iconic pink pussy hats. The feminist group sent out a fundraising email Tuesday asking subscribers to donate $14.92.

All good, right? Well, not so fast.

Turns out, explorer Christopher Columbus crossed the ocean in 1492 and discovered the Americas. In the eyes of today’s social justices warriors, Columbus came to enslave indigenous peoples and otherwise commit genocide.

And the Women’s March was quickly reminded of this.

The email subject line reportedly read “$14.92, ” and the enclosed message began, “We have an important favor to ask.” That favor was to “chip in $14.92 to power our upcoming mobilization at the Supreme Court.” On December 1st, the Supreme Court will start hearing oral arguments for Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which Women’s March sees as “a direct challenge to Roe v. Wade.”

The group’s website declares: “We are holding the line for for abortion justice on December 1st.” (The typo is theirs.)

After plenty of blowback, the Women’s March brain trust was quick to come back with a groveling apology — which would only compound their problems.

“We apologize deeply for the email that was sent today,” the feminists tweeted. “$14.92 was our average donation amount this week. It was an oversight on our part to not make the connection to a year of colonization, conquest, and genocide for Indigenous people, especially before Thanksgiving.”

Well, that offering of stupidity set off an avalanche of ridicule and mockery from the masses — rightfully so. Some expressed sympathy for The Babylon Bee for trying to deliver satire amid incidents like this, as seen here:
