Mike Huckabee has dismissed the upcoming "Women's March on Washington" as an event catering to feminists and ultra-liberals who support abortion and hate President-elect Donald Trump — protesters he says will not tolerate picketers with conservative views.

"If there were truth-in-advertising, they'd have to call it 'The Leftist, Feminist, Anti-Trump, Pro-Abortion Women's March on Washington,"' the former Arkansas governor and GOP presidential candidate wrote Wednesday night on his Facebook page.

"It's supposedly being held to bring together all women in a show of support for women's rights. One problem: the organizers seem to think that 'women's rights' is defined as the right to be pro-abortion and anti-Trump.

"While the organizers took no official position on abortion, pro-life women's groups complain that it's clear to them that they are not welcome and their views will be attacked at the rally."

The march, expected to attract tens of thousands, is set for Jan. 21st in Washington, the day after Trump is sworn in as the nation's 45th president.

Organizers say it is being staged to "send a bold message to our new administration on their first day in office, and to the world that women's rights are human rights.

"The rhetoric of the past election cycle has insulted, demonized, and threatened many of us — immigrants of all statuses, Muslims and those of diverse religious faiths, people who identify as LGBTQIA, Native people, Black and Brown people, people with disabilities, survivors of sexual assault …

"In the spirit of democracy and honoring the champions of human rights, dignity, and justice who have come before us, we join in diversity to show our presence in numbers too great to ignore."

But "for the record," Huckabee says on Facebook, "53 percent of white women voted for Trump, and the latest Gallup poll finds that only 29 percent of Americans think abortion should be legal in all circumstances, while the rest think it should either be limited by law or banned outright.

"That leaves an awful lot of completely or moderately pro-life women and female Trump voters whose opinions are being dismissed by the organizers of the 'Women's March on Washington.'"

Aside from the Washington protest, which is scheduled to be led off by renowned feminist Gloria Steinem, local groups are expected to stage "sister marches" in most states across the nation at the same time.
