TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! WINTER STORM FORECAST AND DEMOCRATIC PARTY DROPOUT THREATEN KANSAS CITY WOMEN'S MARCH REDUX 2019!!!
Over the weekend our blog community was the FIRST Kansas City news outlet to call out local elected officials taking part in a controversial march that has fallen out of favor among progressives.
Here's a quick look back . . .
The KCMO politicos slated to speak . . .
Mayor Sly James, Council Ladies & Mayoral Contenders Jolie Justus, Alissa Canady with Congresswoman Sharice Davids headlining.
Now . . .
THE DNC DROP OUT OF THE MARCH PUTS THE KANSAS CITY PROTEST IN PERIL!!!
Here's the damage . . .
UST: Democratic National Committee out as Women's March sponsor amid Antisemitism controversy
NBC: Several prominent civil and women’s rights groups are absent from the list of partners of the third Women’s March in Washington on Saturday.
Luckily, an "out" of the controversy might be the upcoming arctic last.
Local ladies haven't said much about national push back but they are worried about the freezing temperatures.
A quick quote:
"Please do the best, right, smart thing and reschedule this event. There are so many of us that want to be there. The forecast is such that we won't be there. It's not a matter of sincerity or dedication. It is the wise and safe thing to do. We don't even need to know the new date yet, just say, 'Postponed until another date. Watch for the announcement.' Thank you."
Accordingly . . .
WILL THREATS OF WEATHER AND PROGRESSIVE BACKLASH CANCEL THE KANSAS CITY MARCH??? SHOULDN'T KANSAS CITY POLITICOS TAKE A STAND ON THIS CONTROVERSIAL EFFORT THEY'VE SUPPORTED SO FAR???
You decide . . .
