Kansas City’s March for Science started before 9:00 a.m. as people gathered at 27th and Grand for the 9:30 march past Crown Center to Washington Square Park.
Donald Trump isn’t a popular figure:
The marchers streamed into the park.
The crowd in the park, easily numbering over two thousand, listened to a number of speakers.
Some of the marchers clung to the illusion that science is non-partisan. Not when the party in power is militantly anti-science.
One speaker praised Roy Blunt (r) for being pro-science. Maybe on K Street? I couldn’t tell if the crowd’s silent reaction to the statement was because they didn’t hear it, chose to ignore it, or were incredulous.
One of the speakers asserted they were a moderate republican. There are no moderate republicans. They’re either the radical right or they’re enablers of the same. Own it.
