You surely heard quite a bit about the Women’s March, a global rally on Saturday for women’s rights that had Washington, D.C. as its physical and emotional center, but which was comprised, in total, of nearly 700 marches worldwide.
A handful of celebrities were notable participants, including the pop singer and actress Madonna. Indeed, Madonna’s appearance at the event before the multitudes ended up becoming very notable when she made a remark that even she likely regretted later… something about blowing up the White House, of all things.
Yes, that’s right.
Courtesy of Gateway Pundit, here’s a transcript of what the Queen of Pop said:
“I’m angry. Yes, I am outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House. (Crowd cheers.) 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 Two, “We must love one another or die.” I choose love. Are you with me? (Crowd cheers.) Say this with me: We choose love!…We choose love!…We choose love!”
According to the Pundit, a spokesman for the Secret Service told the outlet that they are “aware” of Madonna’s comment about blowing up the White House, and that a formal investigation into the matter would be opened. However, said the spokesman, whether Madonna is actually prosecuted for the remark is up to the discretion of the U.S. Attorney’s office.
