• Revolution of Love

    From Lee Lofaso@2:203/2 to All on Fri Jan 27 19:47:06 2017
    Hello Everybody,

    And now, by popular demand, and due to CNN cutting short
    the live broadcast of her speech, here are the words of wisdom
    Madonna told her friends at the Women's March in Washington DC -
    the full and uncensored version.


    "Are you still awake out there?

    "Are you sure about that?

    "Can you hear me?

    "Are you ready to shake up up the world?

    "Welcome to the revolution of love. To the rebellion. To our refusal
    as women to accept this new age of tyranny. Where not just women
    are in danger but all marginalized people. Where people uniquely
    different might be considered a crime. It took us this darkness to
    wake us the fuck up.

    "It seems as though we had all slipped into a false sense of comfort.
    That justice would prevail and that good would win in the end. Well,
    good did not win this election but good will win in the end. So what
    today means is that we are far from the end. Today marks the beginning,
    the beginning of our story. 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. That
    there is power in our unity and that no opposing force stands a chance
    in the face of true solidarity.

    "And to our detractors that insist that this March will never add
    up to anything, fuck you. Fuck you. It is the beginning of much needed
    change. Change that will require sacrifice, people. Change that will
    require many of us to make different choices in our lives, but this
    is the hallmark of revolution. So my question to you today is are you
    ready? I said, are you ready? Say yes, we are ready. Say, yes we are
    ready. One more time: you're ready.

    "Yes, I'm angry. Yes, I am outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful
    lot of blowing up the White House, but I know that this won't change
    anything. We cannot fall into despair. As the poet, W.H. Auden once
    wrote on the eve of World War II: We must love one another or die.

    "I choose love. Are you with me? Say this with me: We choose love.
    We choose love. We choose love."

    -=The End=-
