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 . . .

WaPo: The NRA’s internal split over Philando Castile

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 . . .

Dallas Police Assoc. Says Low Pay, Morale Trigger Several Police Resignations

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.

You decide . . .

Kansas City is all about the next paycheck. Tk, even you must realize that this social justice talk is just a way to pass the time until the next tax break for another hotel or airport or streetcar. Smoke and mirrors as it's finest. While people are out there protesting, the consultants are lining up to get paid. That's how democracy in KC really works and that's what you need to tell your readers.

Sly is like Obama. Folk are wishing his term was over. He has clearly demonstrated that he doesn't have a grasp of the dynamics in KC.

I nominate it for an International Niggy Award for completely avoiding the actual cause of gun violence.

My experience from years past was the KCPD mostly stopped white people for minor traffic offenses and were too scared to stop a black male. Perhaps they were told not to stop blacks because it was too difficult to collect the fines.

Do you think that SLY knows/ What is the best way to get a little political money from the gun lobby? ACT LIKE YOU ARE AGAINST THEM.

Sly's pattern is to find something he doesn't control and then blame it and others even when the solution is obviously within his control. Look at his record.

Kc is not Dallas. Stuff going on with guns has nothing to do with politicians except the ones who think arming everyone to the teeth is the answer.

How many more innocents must die before we ban federal transit grants and dedicated transit taxes democratically enacted in a convenient, legal, mail-in election that had higher voter turnout than a typical municipal election by the residents who pay the taxes explicitly for the purpose of building and operating a streetcar from being used To pay for streetcars?

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."

---Jorge Agustín Nicolás Ruiz de Santayana y Borrás (known as George Santayana)


Sylvester James has publicly outed himself as a TOTAL MORON when stating that he seeks Hillary Clinton as our next President.

Democrats, and anyone else suffering from this affliction, have extremely short memories.
President Clinton was only the 2nd President in our history to be impeached. The charges were PERJURY and OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE. Clinton's counsel during impeachment was Cheryl Mills, who is now Hillary's long-time confidant and aide.

If you support Hillary Clinton for President, by default, you also are advocating for:

ADULTERY--violating your sacred marital vows

PERJURY--willfully telling lies in court, after swearing an oath to be truthful

OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE--A criminal offense that involves interference, through words or actions, with the proper operations of a court or officers of the court. The integrity of the judicial system depends on the participants' acting honestly and without fear of reprisals.

As he closes out his term in office, Obama's embrace of Hillary's candidacy further reveals his utter lack of respect for American jurisprudence. Democrats still have time to nominate Sanders, Biden, or some other alternate.

A vote for Clinton is a vote for anarchy and the destruction of the United States of America.

Congrats TKC-
I think u hit the nail square on the head with two opening paragraphs to this post-
"Let's start this Monday.....deadly police shootings."

Until the leaders of the Black Community get off the message of "Racism, Racism, Racism, Racism...., " it's never going to get better.
Thanks U TKC!

yeah congratulations on being totally incoherent.

Tony's Sweeping Generalizations.

Yes, we need to look at these police shootings critically but we also need to examine what some of these protesters are saying and realize that we all lose if a big segment in this society claims to be disenfranchised.

Actually, the NRA problem runs a bit deeper. Their nuttiest supporters want to have advanced weaponry so they can "fight government tyranny" in the form of those FBI/ATF/IRS/UN Black Helicopters. That is what they tell us the 2nd Amendment is for -- not just shotguns for hunting or home protection. AR15s to fight the Gu'm'nt.

Well, welcome to what that kind of thinking leads to...in Dallas: Military action by a citizen against what he perceives as the forces of tyranny -- in the form of five dead police officers. Of course, he was NUTS -- but no nuttier than his redneck counterparts who keep the Paranoid Patriots Industry in business.

Parents need to accept responsibility for this clusterfuck that they hatched via their own abdication of parental responsibilities and/or gullibility of listening to "professional parenting experts" in the MSM for all these years so that we can move forward with corrective action regarding how NOT to raise children in the future.

6:12, no he wasn't nuts. He was just militarized against white cops by BLM and Democratic Party propaganda. There will be more like him, as the Dems continue their verbal assaults on civil society to shore up the black vote.
