TKC EXCLUSIVE FACT CHECK!!! EXAMINING MAYOR SLY'S TRAGIC LEGACY AGAINST 2ND AMENDMENT GUN RIGHTS AMID 2016 KANSAS CITY HOMICIDE SPIKE, DEADLY POLICE SHOOTINGS AND DOMESTIC TERRORISM TARGETING COPS!!!
Let's start this Monday morning by reminding our blog community comprised of Kansas City's fiercest critics that the so-called "conversation about race" is nothing more than a cheap political mind trick used to distract the populace from more substantive issues and create a culture of victimization wherein even the most mediocre people can blame their lack of personal achievement and self-esteem on the system, political correctness or some other invisible, imagined force.
Fact is, the sordid subject of "a conversation about race" in the current mainstream media lexicon is little more than an exercise in meaningless partisan politics used to manipulate voters into working against their own interests. And this brings us to the far more important topic of gun control, community policing and Kansas City politics in the context of frustration and terrorism amid deadly police shootings . . .
Accordingly . . .
A CRITICAL EXAMINATION OF RECENT POLICE SHOOTING TUMULT COMPARED WITH THE ANTI-GUN RHETORIC OF MAYOR SLY JAMES REVEALS STUNNING HYPOCRISY AND DOUBLE TALK FROM THIS BELOVED CITY HALL HONCHO!!!
Check the facts . . .
Over the past weeks, months and years Mayor Sly James and local Democratic Party leadership have argued against "illegal" weapons and encouraged more gun control . . .
An inconvenient fact amid so much local social justice protest . . .
PROGRESSIVE MARTYR ALTON STERLING WAS REPORTEDLY A FELON CARRYING AN ILLEGAL FIREARM . . . HE WAS EXACTLY THE KIND OF PERSON LOCAL AUTHORITIES AND MAYOR SLY ARE ATTEMPTING TO DISARM!!!
InfoWars . . . Alton Sterling: “Gentle Giant” or Armed Felon? Sterling was well known to local police as a dangerous criminal
Never mind that so much anti-gun rhetoric is really just a talking point and a bit of blame shifting employed against the Missouri GOP. Like it or not, the mayor's tough talk about gun control is nowhere to be seen or heard when authorities were, in fact, enforcing gun laws already on the books against a guy with a rap sheet that was nearly as extensive as his CD collection.
Now on the topic of last week's gun tragedy in Minnesota . . .
Admittedly, gun advocates don't know how to handle this one and there are questions about the validity of a widely-touted gun permit . . .

What's somewhat interesting to our blog community is that the officer who shot and killed Mr. Castile was misidentified as Chinese and was actually a Latino who seemingly overreacted to the possession of a gun:
Daily Mail: Minnesota cop who shot dead Philando Castile during a traffic stop claims he was reacting to the gun - and not his race
Again, this tragic gun overreaction is easily connected Mayor Sly's agenda given that so-much of his anti-gun rhetoric has created a divisive schism betwixt gun owners and the political establishment. Strident advocates of mayor Sly's agenda have turned gun ownership into an act of hostility rather than an exercise in 2nd Amendment freedom.
Moreover, arguments against gun rights from the otherwise silent Citizen Task Force Against Violence seem to be the focus of everyone connected to Mayor Sly's regime in a blind willingness to attack Constitutional rights and leave inner-city and minority communities completely defenseless in the face of a homicide spike that has claimed dozens of innocent lives in the urban core this year.
Finally, when the Mayor talks gun violence and rising local crime, he rarely mentions staffing and budget hits taken by the KCPD which coincide with an uptick in local violence as over 100 officer positions have been threatened over the past year according to MSM reports . . .
Another inconvenient fact check from our blog community . . .
Before Dallas police were hit by bullets from a racist domestic terrorist . . . They suffered the same kind of low morale and budget hits that the KCPD has confronted . . .

So, when Mayor Sly talks about supporting police . . . His rhetoric is not reflected in legislative action but merely offered in soundbytes to the local media that are rarely questioned.
In conclusion, the Kansas City chattering class are content to engage in the mutual masturbation of racial discourse and public prayers while more critically-minded Kansas City residents might want to focus on police funding and defense of the Constitution (or lack thereof) which more accurately defines the tenure of the current administration and impacts all of Kansas City beyond the demographic, racial, political and cultural lines dreamed up to divide and conquer the electorate.
