TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY CLERGY CONCERNED ABOUT TKC BLOG COMMENTS!!!



This afternoon one of the more respected members of the Kansas City faith community reached out regarding the level of discourse on this blog.

To wit . . .

CHECK OUT A THOUGHTFUL PERSPECTIVE FROM A LOCAL REV. REGARDING TKC BLOG COMMENTS!!!

We're not changing anything any time soon but it's important to give every perspective consideration, especially one that is obviously concerned for the well-being of the community at-large.

Check it:

Concern About Blog Comments

Dear TKC,

Are you beginning to wonder about the way your forum is being used to disseminate abusive, bullying, racist, sexually violent thoughts and comments?

Just look at the racial epithets in today's initial comments about the Mayor James/Chief Forte issue. In my opinion, just like online newspapers such as USA Today do, you are going to need to have these kinds of comments reviewed for possible removal, or your blog could definitely get out of hand with sick minds having an opportunity to provoke other sick minds.

Sincerely,

Rev. ##########, Pastor
############## Church

The Rev. is right. It's become a black hole of filth, hatred.

This is kinda true. There are many times that I wanted to comment but in no way wanted to be associated with the remarks that went before.

The Rev. should get his flock under control !

The comments were rather tame. Im sure the lobby of the church is much worse.

You don't think the majority of us are concerned about the community as a whole? We see what's happening and what and who the problems are.

Yes, the comments should be monitored--too much sexism and racism.

Wrong, Let FREE Speech rule.

Our religious "Thought Leaders" have spoken. The automatic assumption that the clergy (Bishop Finn anyone?) has the high ground in any discussion, ESPECIALLY when there are politics involved, is not only naieve, but stretches credulity in light of the incessant never ending sexual scandals that exist in ALL demoninations of organized religion.

Ya wanna know why? Because, just like politics, the grocery store, restaurants and City Hall, humans run the show, with their own agandas.

If Harsh Language is the arbiter of your involvement in this blog in terms of participation, man the fuck up and speak your mind. The firsta amendment will not be around forever. Liberal facists now in charge, will modify and destroy the concept, exactly as they have in Elngland and Europe. Hive minded talking poiints from on high, have alrady suffused the MSM and they are coming for TKC soon enough.

Until then, vitriol and acrimony seasoned with reason and empathy are just the catharsis the fucking doctor ordered in this free for all rhetorical intercourse, where if you are not getting fucked, you are not trying.

"...your blog could definitely get out of hand with sick minds having an opportunity to provoke other sick minds."

Shee-it! Shoulda spoke up years ago before commenters started gettin' out of hand. It's far too late now esse: this whole blog IS AIMED at sick minds...

the Polar Bear said...

With the history of churches lately, perhaps the reverend should get his own house and flock under control. Right now, men of the cloth don't carry much weight in the circles I travel. That xxxxxxx out wasn't Bishop Finn I hope...

Preacher are you blind. Maybe your effort should be to slow the murder rate in Kansas City rather than agitate the douche bags that frequent this blog.

Is the preacher wanting to "censor" peoples rights. Nothing says we have to like niggers, mexicans, pedophiles like those that hide behind the cloth, or any other ass wipe, myself included. I thought this blog prided itself in being the greatest and only free speech blog in KC. Maybe I misread that earlier today from the Taco that run it. No the preacher should take care of his own house and leave us undesirables alone.

Dear Rev. ##########, Pastor,

I don't tell or suggest to you how or what to speak about in your own home or in your so called house of God. In doing so, I ask you to not think you can force your thoughts and opinions upon us in how we may sometimes talk or speak here at Tony’s Kansas City..

If Tony’s Kansas City is causing you displeasure with uncomfortable feelings, then may I please suggest you no longer read what is taking place here and in doing so I will promise to do the same in return to you and those who you worship with, in your place of worship.

Super Dave

I'm with hyper on this one. I tend to want to comment when there I'd at least a modicum of intelligence shining through in the comments section but when it gets all racial I sorta feel like it's not worth my time. I also find myself looking over my shoulder to see who might be looking over mine add I don't want to look like a typical East Jack hillbilly.

nothing wrong with a East Jack hillbilly unless your a snitch

Man of the Cloth or Charlatan said...

Rev ########## I have to take exception to your complaint. There are 29 comments and the word "nigger" was used twice. I would imagine there are more cuss words used at your Sunday morning worship service by women talking smack on other women.

Another thought could be, the owner of this blog using the cloth to bring attention to what he see's as a growing problem. Ironic that several post mentioned the owner of this blog complaining about his blog being an embarrassment and suddenly a letter from a holy man.

Makes you wonder.

Shepherd Of The Hills said...

I talk shit on this blog, I tell it straight and don't take any B.S. from the politicians who try to run KC in the ground.

Then I go to Church on Sunday and pray for our city.

I don't mix my religion with blogs and I don't want blogs in my religion. Nuff said.

Rev,

Maybe you should ask Tony about that "thou shalt not lie" thing.

He's right.

No surprise re the response the trolls would post in reaction to this.

Still trolls.

He said what many think.

But Tony ..who will spread the word to folks who don't already know that stupid dave is a nasty old man who craves boy batter???!!?

Marvin Pontiac said...

It takes some gall to tell Tony how to run his blog.
Since the Star heavily moderates comments (not only offensive ones but ANYTHING calling them or popular mainstream thought into question) this really is KC's ONLY comment thread allowing free speech. Will you get vile, racist comments? You bet. But you will also get a glimpse into the truth and behind-the-curtains info about this city that you would not get otherwise.
The folks who want to shut free speech down are the VERY status quo who fear the shedding of light on things and THAT in itself should be reason enough to never consider moderating anything but spam.
Tony is of course smart enough to know this as well.

Ok, I'll play along with this obvious charade. At least for a moment.

Firstly, this is CLEARLY a false posting. We are to believe that a member of the clergy reads TKC regularly, is aware of a specific recent posting, and out of concern has written to TKC advising a crackdown on freedom of speech? Excuse me a second, I have to get up off the floor after an uncontrollable laughing spell!!!!

The "Rev. ##########, Pastor" of an anonymous church has written complaining about anonymous comments? Do the clergy actually identify themselves using the phrase "Rev. X, Pastor"? I think not. And have you ever known a clergy member to write anonymously, as their vocation calls them to lead by name as an example for others?

Folks, this posting is from Tony, as he's apparently having second thoughts about his previously stated claim as "KC's last free speech zone." Is he worried about getting sued? I don't know why he would reverse course now, as much of the appeal of this blog is the readers ability to state their own opinions as they see fit. Those who abuse the privilege typically get drowned out by the saner visitors, or quickly go bored and leave on their own.

Let's hope this falsely attributed posting was just Tony's way of broaching the subject of responsible commenting, and he doesn't do something detrimental to his own interests, like following the KC Falling Star's lead in squelching the readers right to comment.

Or maybe another very early April Fool's joke.

Free speech...the losers on here have just as much right to say their opinions as does the "Reverend" here. You can't fix stupid just because you edit comments. I think people who believe in a mythical man in the sky are silly, but I'm not going to tell them to stop preaching...

I think the Rev's point was the sickos are ramping it up so much it might insight other sickos with actual violent tendencies to do harm. One must not look too far into history to see what the propaganda of hate can bring about. For a while now I've feared what might happen to someone as a result of this blog and I know there are people who have been harassed in real life (not politicians) because of this blog and think TKC would be wise to take heed to the Rev's counsel if not for the well being of others but for the possible legal action if someone God forbid one day gets hurt. It is illegal to insight a riot, for example. Oh and I've no doubt this blog is monitored by the FBI at this point.

Well let the FBI spend lots of time laughing their asses off at us having a good time. Snitch motherfuckers like you 10:10 are what's wrong around here you lying scumbag.

Yet, most people who leave his church barely know a scripture... not even the one prominently positioned in the church bulletin.

I think a real minister wrote the letter and I can think of a couple of snitch low life motherfuckers who might really be behind it. Come on people who has been harassing Tony the past two months? I as everyone else see the posts here and there making snide remarks. Who said they were going to have Tony beat up? Who as well has been harassing the commenters anyway they can to try and piss people off then going all nuts when they lose control of how the game is being played? I say that fool and the other fool are joining forces and trying to fuck with Tony and the rest of us. So do we stand for this crap?

Psst FBI.... West Virginia. 10-4 Over and out.

10:10 is that you Tony?

10:10 you are so pathetically weak! I bet you want the government to take care of you also. The "sickos" will be recognized as "sickos", so please have just a tiny bit of faith in this blog's readers to ignore them.

As to inciting violence in others, again you're way off base! The truly crazy will receive their marching orders from those voices in their head, not from anything they might have stumbled onto here at TKC.

Let FREE SPEECH rule the internet and this blog site.

I'm going to use your hard earned tax dollars to buy marijuana legally & get high every morning while you winners go off to work. Honest to God, I'll dedicate my first bowl to all the middle class puppies who need to go out there & make something of themselves. Especially, the readers of TKC, whose intelligence, empathy & social grace has convinced me to become an isolated recluse. Dear Winners: You all have a good time, I'm checking out! Like I said, I'll be thinking of you every morning.

10:10 I am sure the FBI is monitoring this site after a make belief character (Flint Lock) threatened the FBI's top KC snitch (Byron) who has never been to KC and lives in a make believe hollow somewhere in West Virginia. The FBI has a new "Parody Squad" and they are ramped up to take these arch villains off the street.

Marvin Pontiac I agree with you 100%. With the vile, racist, homophobic comments you also get a look into what many choose to hide from. This blog provides a look into some of the darker sides of our society. If some don't like the comments of others, simply pass over them. There is a real good chance those people don't like you either. That's why we have several political parties, etc,etc.

Why does this member of the minister-industrial complex think he can keep himself anony? Fuck you, and fuck your fake ass purple suit wearing jive shucking, Harold Pener suit wearing congregation.

Every day I read some ridiculous shit from a KC black grifter I make it a point to make the day just a little bit harder for a black person- just because what goes around comes around.

Does this mean Byron is gone for good????

As Bette Davis said when Joan Crawford died, "You're only supposed to say good things about the dead. Joan is dead. Good."

Anonymous said...

By the way, Tony, if indeed Pootie and Flint were kicked off TKC for antagonizing Byron, how does this "last" (hopefully) post by a lazy welfare cheat not antagonize those who play by the rules and "make something of themselves?"

Byron can dish it out but he sure can't take it.

Anonymous said...

A little bit of honesty is refreshing. Too many people play the race card. In this forum that card is worthless... It is easy to scroll through the comments. The little bar is on the right --->

Flint Lock said...

I was not kicked off I don't think. I was in jail for insulting a moron. FBI arrested me. Said I abused a mentally retarded FBI imformant (snitch) and it was a civil rights violation as he was part Indian and he had some negro blood. The Polar Bear bailed me out early this morning.

Anonymous said...

Great to have you back. We missed you. I hope your sheep are OK. Was the Negro blood inside or outside the snitch?

TKC does remove comments.

They do a fine job cleaning this place up.
