TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! REALITY CHECK: LIKE IT OR NOT, KANSAS CITY STANDS WITH ISRAEL AMID CONTROVERSIAL GAZA CONFLICT!!!
A recent pro-Israel march on the left coast got me thinking about Kansas City's place in the world and a local fact of political life that all the other cowtown pundits are too timid to write.
To wit . . .
THE KANSAS CITY POLITICAL ELITE AND PRETTY MUCH ANYBODY THAT MATTERS IN TOWN STAND FIRMLY WITH ISRAEL DURING THE CONTROVERSIAL CONFLICT IN GAZA!!!
Yeah, there might be a few Pro-Palestinian marches on the Plaza but when we're talking about decision makers in this town and people who hold influence . . . Every last politico or power broker in Kansas City lines up with Israel. This bit of TKC polling is probably more important than tomorrow's election in the grand scheme of things.
Additionally, count TKC among those supporters as well but I'm a horrible person and the endorsement of this blog is based mostly on love for the hottie lady soldiers and encouragement for others who are also showing some skin for the Holy Land: Israeli Women Stand With IDF By Showing Off Their Breasts and Asses
Anyhoo . . .
Yes, yes, there are a lot of Jewish power brokers in Kansas City but this is also the Bible belt and local Christians aren't looking for any common ground with the Muslims in Gaza who make a convincing case about civilian casualties while glossing over the despicable human shield tactics of Hamas. Moreover, KC is also a military-industrial hub that's supplying a great deal of the equipment keeping rocket firing terrorists at bay on the other side of the planet.
What makes TKC uncomfortable is the quiet obliviousness to the debate that's raging in so many other U.S. metropolitan areas. Maybe it's fear of having a conversation or just quiet confidence that totally strikes TKC as unfamiliar . . . Whatever the case . . . Fact is: When it comes to mainstream opinion in Kansas City . . . This is a town TOTALLY in support of Israel in the current Gaza conflict that's causing controversy in other cities that don't have this town's resolve.
