Yael Hits Bottom With Smoking Rage And Talk Of Political "Rape Fantasies" Online
It must be election time given that Kansas City Star columnist Yael Abouhalkah is using bawdy language and advocating for higher taxes . . .
First example . . . Here's a low blow against pro-life advocacy:
"Rape fantasies from Mourdock, Akin and Ryan"
There wasn't much response to the missive that's pretty standard online hateration but I was just thinking that Kansas City mainstream media folks like to consider themselves "respectable" on the local public broadcasting networks but then go back online and drop rhetorical bombshells just like bloggers. The only difference with the editorial staff @ The Star is that they don't like criticisms of their opinions. And while I might even agree with the premise of the post . . . The harsh wording is kinda hilarious from a Kansas City Star writer who doesn't tolerate much criticism online.
And just for good measure . . . Here's Yael, once again, in favor of more taxes:
Why a higher cigarette tax is very good for Missouri
While I'm not advocating for cancer stix and I don't think anybody should smoke . . . The talk about revenue for education from this tax is laughable given Missouri's record when it comes to pilfering from sin tax funds.
Sadly, there's not much room for debate with The Kansas City Star Editorial Board that's mostly about handing down their words without taking many questions from a dwindling subscriber base.
