EXCLUSIVE KANSAS CITY FREE SPEECH RESPONSIBILITY AWESOME!!! TOGETHER WE WILL CHANGE THE TKC COMMENT POLICY!!!



We've done a bit of soul searching this morning.

No joke.

The tragic passing of a Kansas City Jazz singer has apparently entrusted the feelings and tender emotions of all Kansas City to this blog along our journey to serve as a fact check and forum for community discussion.

Here's some of the testimony sent the way of this blog that we haven't been sure how to deal with . . .

This kind of passive aggressive ultimatum got our attention: 

"I just heard about the death of Dionne Jeroue. I worked with her once or twice last year, and found her to be a wonderful person. I did a google search to try to find out what happened. Your biog appeared as the FIRST listing in the search. There are several very insensitive postings that would be very hurtful to anyone close to her. Please take what steps you can, as soon as possible, to see that those around her are not burdened by this vulgarity."

Actually, thinking back I did meet Dionne and she seemed very nice, overly nice to this blogger who I think she might have mistaken for her drummer:

"TKC Just curious if you knew Dionne? If you didn't get the chance to know her .....she was probably one of the greatest people you would ever meet.....besides your mom, of course. I like reading your blog but I don't understand why you continue to let people speak so ill of the dead. Isn't there anything sacred? Apparently all the good light she put into the world is diminished to some of the low comments people put in without obviously having met her. It's just so cowardly."

And then there's this complimentary ask that came in last night:

"First of all, thank your for the website. It is amazing how you put forth so much insider news!

How can you get the gutter language stopped. It takes away from the message something fierce. I suppose if you required an email address, it would stop those filthy rants. Hope you can do something about it!"

Heretofore, with help from some of the best people in the Greater Kansas City area, we have championed an effort to maintain THE LAST REMAINING KANSAS CITY FREE SPEECH ZONE . . . But apparently, people don't really like or support free speech when it comes to something with which they might disagree.

And so . . .

TODAY WITH YOUR HELP WE ARE GOING TO ATTEMPT TO DEVISE NEW RULES FOR THIS KANSAS CITY FREE SPEECH ZONE THAT WILL SOON BE IMPLMENTED IN THE COMMENTS SECTION!!!



Together we can do this!!!

Here are our priorities for the new TKC comment section coming soon:



- To show respect, understanding and support for all of Kansas City!!!

- How can we encourage, motivate and positively reinforce our Kansas City community??? 

- Discourage hate speech, libel and defamation (slander is spoken you d-bags) and instead strive to uplift Kansas City with our written words.



Now we put it to you . . . Today we're going to devise these new rules and if it works out the comments policy will be changed. Let's see what you can come up with KC!!! Let's do this!!!

Some of the commenters are sick and stupid. But overall I think things are fine as is.

Good for you Tony.

First rule should be: Make the commenters funnier!

LOL!

How about including a fact or two while you're at it?

This is a joke, right? If respect for all things Kansas City is a requirement you will seriously have to clean your own house as most of your rubbish blasts KC and all that is good about it. You might even have to(shudder)stand up for white interests, support local businesses such as the Roasterie, root for the Chiefs, feature white boy music, and worst of all hop on the trolley while lapping up all of Sly's nonsense.

Love KC, love the blog, love the new comment policy!

Go for it TKC!

How about just eliminate any post that is race baiting, uses racial slurs, is misogynistic, advocates criminal activity like rape, or attacks the families of public figures especially their children?

Marvin Pontiac said...

This is the ONLY place you can get the unadulterated truth from insiders behind the corruption in this city.

Start moderating comments and you've become the Star.

Might as well start running the Nebraska Rube Furniture Mart ads if you're gonna take after that rag.

April Fool!!!!! Tell the critques to go fuck themselves if they can't take a joke. And Tony, my friend, when my time comes to hit room temperature you can do my obit right here and let them say what ever they want and they can all kiss my ass.

Send me an email if you figure out who this is.

You limit Free speech and you will no longer have a Blog! Don't give in to the liberal bed wetters.

1) I was sad to hear about the jazz singer's passing and I'm glad you posted the story.

2) Sometimes when you put a simple swear word filter on the comments it makes them more interesting.

3) You run this sandbox so if people want to do it differently they can start their own blog.

chuck said...

TKC is in fact legitimate by way of outrageous comments. It is the Anonymous, Free Speech Imprimatur, instinctively recognized by all, which provides the unttammelled free for all that makes up the information, discussion, catharsis, discourse, humor, social interaction, revelations and the hoped for proselytization commenters hope for in their heart of hearts.

When the "cumm on your tits" guy leaves, so does the truth.

Nothing is free dumbasses.

If harsh language offends you, then the truth in this city will kill you anyway one way or the other.

Anonymous said...

NONE of the rights are absolute. Speech, assembly, bear arms, etc.

First indicator that a person is ill informed.....they assert that THEIR right is absolute, with no regard to another person's right.

You can stop the misogyny by stop posting pictures of local women for the benefit of hits.

Nice April Fool's joke Tony.

Contrary to most of the above posts it is time to reduce the gutter language these 14 year old trolls are putting out there. An adult would not use such low life language.

I am not opposed to swearing, but to cut people to the core with vulgarity is unacceptable.

Please, when writing ANONYMOUSLY, please imagine your child was over your shoulder.

If you can't comment without vile language, maybe you just don't have the vocabulary necessary.

Channing Truthchurch, concerned reader said...

9:14, I always love the childishly silly argument that folks using profanity lack vocabulary. Images of a starched-skitrted schoolmarm always come to mind.

Polite, PC, non-offensive speech has led this city down the shitter and I'd argue that we need MORE honestly pissed off and vulgar speech to wake people up to just how...yep, just how completely FUCKED IN THE ASS the leadership of this cowtown is!!

Now please go about your day biting your tongue and being on-edge about potentially offending someone...followed closely by warm feelings of sanctimonious superiority.

Increase the coverage of non Blacks especially Mexicans singers etc let's see how long the comments remain free speech zones when we flood this rag with anti spic and wet back comments. Report on the Hispanic Crime Wave And The Corruption Of Groups Like The West Side Housing And maddie Rhodes Open Your Ethic Group And Leaders Up To Slander Libel Tony And Let's Really Have Free Speech. ..

When comments are deleted, which they are, calling this a "free speech zone" is the biggest April Fool's joke of all.

Byron Funkhouser said...

Happy April Fool's Day, Tony!

Easy fix to this problem. The people that use racial slurs are morons. However, they have the right to whatever they want to say. I don't want you to censor the right to free speech.....but when you post about a death....how about you just don't provide a comment section for that particular article.......

Anonymous said...

More Tony Baloney! We want free speech, but if you do exercise it we will start imposing sanctions and conditions. There is your left wing DEMOCRATIC free speech alright! Say it how we want to hear it or else. Total Hypocritical BULLSHIT!

It's your blog T. Hate some of the comments, just skip over them. I will skip the sight if I can't rant about city do-gooders that are ripping us off daily, projects that only benefit a few or corrupt mayors and their pals. If that is gone, you become the Star. Then so long TKC.

Anonymous said...

Well, we certainly can't have you skipping the sight and loose all of your valuable insite, now can we?

TOTALLY & ABSOLUTELY AN APRIL FOOL'S DAY PRANK!!!!!

Everybody knows the TKC Free Speech Zone is one of the PRIMARY draws to this blog! And Tony leads the way with comments about some of the recently departed from KC's elite(Kemper, Hall, etc.).

Besides, those comments which are deemed by the crowd to be racist, ignorant, and idiotic, only serve to unify the majority opinion and allow many to realize that they are in fact smarter than the "other guy."

LONG LIVE THE FREE SPEECH COMMENT ZONE! And, a tip of the hat to Tony for having a healthy sense of humor.

I like the way things are on TKC. I like the "cum on your tits" and the "n-word" guy to. My reason for this - If these guys were not concerned about what is going on they would not use words like this. Sometimes you have to vent, sometimes it takes harsh talk/words to get the point across. Look, there is a lot frustrating crap going on in this city and all over the area. If you don't like what you read go to the next post.

Which is worse.....the comments or tkc using a dead woman as the punchline for his lame april fools attempt

Stalwart O'Chickenfucker said...

any comment that isn't about benghazi or the knock out game has to be bracketed by the n word four times above and below

any time a picture of a male public figure is posted, at least two comments need to be about whether he shaves his pubes

saying anything disparaging about ronald reagan necessitates a lifetime ban

no commenting about your favorite place to eat or party in kansas city. this is a political blog and must remain dead serious at all times.

What does giving good head.......dying by a drive by.....or announcing that it's just another "expletive" dead in the hood have to do with the passing of someone?
It's plain stupid. It's not exactly free speech...it's more meticulous slander. Nobody wants to limit your ability to say what you need to say...but what does calling someone a dirty name have to with making your point. NOTHING!

yes it was mechuck...
you're the worst...no I don't
take the comments personally...
I read your comments and realize
what low lifes really are.
I understand your life..and how
shallow and worthless it is.

however if you believe in Christ
or god or you're own god...you

we're all in this together...
you never have solutions...except
the same ones the Nazis used.
you are a disgrace!!!!
as far as the commentators
who used the foul language
against someone who passed on..
let me make this clear...
YOU ARE SCUM. NOTHING WILL CHANGE
YOU. YOU ARE THE WORST OF THE
WORST. THAT WOMAN WAS SOMEONES
FRIEND...SISTER...MOTHER...
LOVER...WHATEVER...AND THEY
GRIEVE NO DIFFERENT THAN IF
YOU LOST A LOVED ONE.
YOU ARE DISGUSTING FOR POSTING
THAT KIND OF LANGUAGE PERIOD.
what devious vile human would

cowards.

better than what the low lifes
on this site wrote about her.
disgraceful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Harley, you ignorant slut, I didn't even read the story about that lady.

But, speaking of mothers, I am betting yours is 10 years dead, upstairs in a rocking chair at the Bates Motel.

Only on this blog would posters believe Thay the framers of our constitution believed in the right of some ass hole to post disrespectful crap about cumming on tits was a protected right.

A large problem of life in 2014 is that we believe we know what we are talking about when the reality is, most have not read a book in decades.

For the most part I find your posting-public to be delightful.
I am grateful for that 14 year old "cum" dude.

4:06 You, my friend, are mistaken. I cannot not claim to know what the framers of the Constitution had in their mind as they wrote the divine document. I do, however, read books. In fact, I just finished a book that I would recommend for you. It is entitled, The Nazi Years: A documentary history, edited by Joachim Remak. Being a documentary history it is based on actual documents, videos and transcripts from the time. If you should decide to read the book you will find on the first page of chapter six. "'We have to put a stop to the idea that it is a part of everybody's civil rights to say whatever he pleases.' - Adolf Hitler, February 22, 1942, in conversation"

Your vile language takes away from your message. A lack of vocabulary may be your problem. I notice you don't identify yourself when you go on your tangent. You are a coward. Hiding behind the Anonymous identity. You are pathetic, little, nothing, ignorant, immature, juvenile, and stupid.
Now, get a dictionary, and learn a new word, other than your gutter
language. YOU ARE A COWARD. You are impotent. Your Mother should be so proud!

He is not mistaken 406.

The body of work surrounding the ideals of the founding fathers gave us tremendous insight into the mindset associated with the constitution and the founding documents.

Drawing a parallel to Nazi Germany is stupid ass shit.

Next, enlighten us with Bigfoot stories.
