International Women's Day (March 8) is a longtime Communist propaganda gimmick. What does it say about our world when it is enshrined in mainstream culture? Clearly, Communism isn't dead; it has just morphed into other forms. IWD pretends to celebrate women but this poster near my Winnipeg home shows an ugly, surly shrew brandishing a hammer. The caption reads, "if I only had a hammer.." She'd what? Hit men over the head? Tear down society? Smash women who want husbands and children? This isn't far fetched. Under the dance notice, the poster actually says: "Come smash patriarchy at midnight!"
