Dan Maduri: “Madonna’s Profane Rant Cheapened The Women’s March”

Dan Maduri thinks that Madonna’s profanity failed to help the Women’s March on Washington

Speaking to the hundreds of thousands of people who showed up for the Women’s March in Washington D.C. on Saturday, pop superstar Madonna’s lack of class and her personal attacks on President Donald Trump overshadowed the Woman’s March on Washington.”

The seven plus minute rant was peppered with vulgarities that not only did nothing to inspire that crowd but caused many in the crowd to cringe.  Her words were both over the top and out of place for what was billed as a peaceful event.


“The revolution starts here. The fight for the right to be free, to be who we are, to be equal. Let’s march together through this darkness, and with each step know that we are not afraid. That we are not alone. That we will not back down.”

Then, as cable networks CNN and MSNBC broadcasted her speech live, Madonna’s rhetoric turned even more controversial.

“To our detractors, that insist that this march will never add up to anything, f— you,” Madonna said. “F— you.”

“Yes, I’m angry. Yes, I am outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House,” Madonna said. “But I know this won’t change anything. We cannot fall into despair.”

Clearly, Madonna’s star does not shine as bright as it once did. Meanwhile, her credibility, along with her offensive language turned off Republican women and was offensive to the Democrats and Independents who wanted a peaceful March.

Responding to accusations she had made violent threats against President Donald Trump, and an unverified claim that the Secret Service is investigating her for doing so, Madonna took to her Instagram account to walk back her statements.

“I spoke in metaphor and I shared two ways of looking at things — one was to be hopeful, and one was to feel anger and outrage, which I have personally felt. However, I know that acting out of anger doesn’t solve anything, said Madonna.”

On background Madonna’s profane rant was in sharp contrast to the other speakers America Ferrera, Ashley Judd, Scarlett Johansson, and singer Alicia Keys, all made their points without profane rants or threats to President Trump.

There were warning to President Trump, but also to both Republican and Democrats in Congress who wish to roll back women’s rights.
