While the Democratic National Committee and other liberal organizations are dropping their affiliation with the Women’s March on Washington over allegations of antisemitism, a separate women’s march in Denver is distancing itself from one of its controversial leaders.
The Denver “Womxn’s March,” set to take place Saturday, has scrubbed its website of any mention of Kerry O’Grady, the senior Secret Service agent who decried taking “a bullet” for President Trump on Facebook the month before he was elected president.
On January 21, 2017, the day after Donald Trump’s inauguration, millions of people took to the streets across the country to protest the 45th president and support a host of progressive causes. The Women’s March, as the protests were called, became a broader, unified movement of the political left, and the darling of so many in the media and Democratic politicians who called for resistance against societal “oppression” in the age of Trump.
The senior Secret Service agent who said she did not want to take “a bullet” for President Trump and was removed from her leadership post nearly two years ago is helping organize a “Womxn’s” March on Denver January 19th as a member of the event’s executive leadership team, according to the march’s website.
