DEAD TREE MEDIA ELITISM DEFENDS MO HOUSE REP. JEREMY LAFAVER'S POT BUST!!!
Initial reaction to Jeremy LaFaver's recent pot but scandal was mostly giggling but there is a more serious implicaiton.
To wit . . .
NOTICE DEAD TREE MEDIA AND ELITIST DEMOCRATS RUSHING TO THE DEFENSE OF LAFAVER DON'T OFTEN EXTEND THE SAME COURTESY TO POLITICOS FROM THE URBAN CORE!!!
As always, newspaper columnist Yael Abouhalkah is the worst.
More than a half dozen TKC Readers took time out of there day to call, message or text their disgust with this love letter following a hilarious weed bust report: Disappointing drug arrest for rising star of KC's Democrats
RISING STAR?!?! REALLY? CAN ANYBODY NAME ONE THING LAFAVER HAS ACCOMPLISHED DURING HIS TENURE OTHER THAN THIS POT BUST?!?!
Meanwhile, Republicans and Conservatives often complain about the newspaper's "liberal" bias but it's much worse than that . . .
The newspaper is mostly biased in support of the white, middle-class and politically elite - Sadly, LaFaver squeezes right in that sweet spot in terms of the demographics that mistakenly put him into office.
To wit . . .
CHECK MORE THAN A FEW EXAMPLES OF DEAD TREE MEDIA BIAS IN FAVOR OF WHITE, LIBERAL, MIDDLE-CLASS ELITISTS AT THE EXPENSE OF KANSAS CITY'S URBAN CORE!!!
- Remember MO House Rep. Jonas Hughes had a campaign finance dispute that he PAID but the newspaper attempted to spin the controversy into a a local Bernie Madoff scandal because Midtown Kansas City Democrats didn't really care for Hughes.
- I don't want to rehash this because it's over but MO House Rep. Rizzo was unfairly accused and linked to a voting scandal by Dead Tree Media because his relatives were involved in a hot mess. To this day, there hasn't been one charge that Rep. Rizzo has done anything contrary to election rules. Meanwhile, the Rep. is one of the very few Missouri politicos who has focused on PUBLIC SAFETY during his tenure rather than jumping on the partisan bandwagon that has hindered Democrats from Kansas City.
- Dead Tree Media is cool with the fact that old school gerrymandering has kept Latinos out of elected office for more than two decades and without any political representation. Attempts to reverse this trend have been regarded with nothing but suspicion from columnists and not even Latina token Mary Sanchez will speak against the longstanding disenfranchisement.
- Speaking of pot busts . . . Dead Tree Media endorsed School Board Dude Gunner Hand and to this day hasn't written a word about his weed arrest that's surprisingly similar to LaFaver's.
And so . . . We must correct constantly complaining conservatives . . .
Kansas City Dead Tree Media isn't an liberal Democratic rag . . . It's an ELITIST, liberal rag given that their strident defense of disgraced politicos ends at Troost or outside their circle of friends.
