STOPPING THE LOCAL SOCIAL MEDIA POGROM!!! REALITY CHECK: KANSAS CITY'S POLITICAL ESTABLISHMENT (RIGHTFULLY) SUPPORTS ISRAEL WITHOUT QUESTION!!!
I've debated writing about the Israel/Hamas conflict and its connection to Kansas City mostly because I've got problems of my own.
Anybody else notice that parking is becoming impossible near Downtown Kansas City?
Anyhoo . . .
KANSAS CITY SOCIAL MEDIA ACTIVISTS NEED TO STOP PRETENDING THEIR SUPPORT OF HAMAS IS ANYTHING BUT A MISGUIDED NOTION THAT'S PROBABLY ROOTED IN ANTISEMITISM!!!
And then . . .
KANSAS CITY REALITY CHECK: THIS TOWN'S POLITICAL LEADERSHIP IS 100% SUPPORTIVE OF ISRAEL AND ANYTHING LESS IS A SENTIMENT THAT'S NOT PART OF LOCAL MAINSTREAM OPINION!!!
I don't want to get the details wrong here but I do know this: Kansas City Area Prez Truman and a few local prominent Jewish people (Edward Jacobson et. al) were responsible for the recognition of modern day Israel. To this day the Greater Cowtown Area is home to quite a few Jewish power brokers who influence the politics of this town and the nation - This group tends to be supportive of Israel and AGAINST rockets launched toward a civilian population. And so . . .
KANSAS CITY SOCIAL MEDIA "ACTIVISTS" (UGH) MIGHT WANT TO UNDERSTAND THE HISTORY OF THIS TOWN BEFORE THEY SIDE WITH A TERRORIST ORGANIZATION LIKE HAMAS!!!
Again, just a suggestion . . . I've got my own troubles to deal with . . .
For a more nuanced and artful approach to the conflict that also takes a historical perspective . . . Here's a favorite recent clip:
