TKC SUNDAY SPECIAL!!! CONSIDERING KANSAS CITY RECONCILIATION AMID HARSH TIMES AND HOMICIDE SPIKE 2016!!!



Let's talk about forgiveness on this Kansas City Sunday morning.

From the world's most accurate encyclopedia here's a quick summary of what the nuns attempted to beat into us . . .

"The Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation (commonly called Penance, Reconciliation, or Confession) is one of seven sacraments of the Catholic Church, in which the faithful obtain absolution for the sins committed against God and neighbour and are reconciled with the community of the Church."

It's also a great way to pass the time between a relapse.

However, whilst calls for peace and prayer after a week of violence dominate the news cycle in the metro this week . . . The question of absolution if not exoneration comes to mind in three difference but still connected local circumstances.

Take a peek:

Do You Accept An Apology From The Kansas City Star For Slut-Shaming?!?!


Avid Kansas City news readers RAGED on Saturday over an opinion column that seemingly blamed women for rape. There was an apology but it's unclear if it has been accepted by the public at large or at least the last remaining people who pick up the paper. More strident advocates against rape demand that The Star trash their "Midwest Voices" section while journalism enthusiasts want more professional oversight and lament fading experience at the daily rag. It's unknown if even forgiveness from angry women (a rare gesture which most men know is nothing more than a myth) can save a paper from obsolescence in the digital age.  

Will The KCPD Community Outreach Overcome Ongoing Social Justice Outrage Over The Shooting Death Of Ryan Stokes???


At the beginning of this year there was continued advocacy for a shooting death that continues to serve as a rallying cry for more oversight of the KCPD. During recent outrage over police killings on the national level, the controversy surrounding the death of Ryan Stokes was touted again. In turn, after a racist terrorist massacre of Dallas police, the public expressed overwhelming support for the KCPD by and large. Still, if we're talking about better relations betwixt community and police and reducing the overall level of discontent on local streets . . . The topic of Ryan Stokes and his controversial death is a major part of the conversation that more informed denizens of our local Democracy need to understand.

Meanwhile . . .

Some People In Kansas City Don't Want Forgiveness: Will Mayor Sly's Abandon His Development Crusade Amid Repeated Rejection And Castigation From Voters???


Voters hated Mayor Sly's plan for a new airport so much that he was forced to abandon it.



Then weeks later it was revealed FIRST ON TKC that the plan was STILL being pushed forward.

Additionally, let's not forget that voters soundly rejected Mayor Sly's streetcar extension just months ago and now there's an effort to gerrymander voting districts and rig another election in order to get the desired outcome.



Still, even though we clown the streetcar advocates mercilessly, we hope for an honest or at least entertaining discussion beyond all the vitriol that some supporters express when their opinions are challenged and defeated at the ballot . . . At lease in cases where they don't redesign ballots and endanger voting rights for all of Kansas City.

Accordingly . . .



Given that "we're all sinners in the eyes of the Lord" according to my favorite nun from my childhood who absolutely hated Mexicans AND because Sunday readers have clearly forgiven TKC for our many misdeeds, bad jokes and typos if they're checking the blog today . . .

The topic of reconciliation in the religious sense seems to be appropriate as we move forward during an extremely violent 2016 Summer amid socioeconomic, political and cultural divisions that continue to drive the nation apart.

Not a bad little recap of this week but there's a lot more to discuss.

And what about our citizens task force on violence? Where do they stand? Are they still talking about "systemic" racism to themselves?

That's the conversation that KC really doesn't want to have.

I understand the religious theme but it's more about politics and Hillary and Trump then you want to admit. social media is America's new church.

You just find out who supports the streetcar extension within the boundaries of this new TDD, and find out who is against...

Then mail the majority of ballots to supporters, and just a handful to non supporters.

Slam dunk! Public will never even notice.

KC is a growing sink hole. It may not personify the physical characteristics, but those who flee the nemeses are well aware it is done for.

Forgiveness is overrated. The Left Wing Media Machine, has demonized whites and cops for 4 decades now and the fruit of their endeavors is evidenced in the streets of America this last week.

Instead of forgiving, lets attempt to clarify and identify. The Racial polarization sought by the Democrat Party in order to maintain hegemony over private sector, tax paying Americans needs not only clarification, but identification. "Identity Politics" that tenet of the Left, provides a hierarchy for how those NOT in some bullshit "Protected Class" status need to bow and scrape on the altar of Political Correctness.

The clarification and identification in this effort, is easy. If you are white, you are the oppressor and everyone else, by way of Legislation, Propaganda, Presidential Fiat etc. etc. and the threat of violence makes it so.

What Americans, at this point, should do, in my opinion, is clarify and identify. Enemies.

The President, the Liberal Press, The Hollywood Propaganda Machine, Democrat/Fascist Politicians, Community Organizers, Black Lives Matter, the SCLC and the panoply of Democrat/Fascist organizations in the public square, out in the streets, in the Halls of Academe, on your TV, they are ENEMIES. They are not having a 'conversation' with you. They want you dead. They wand cops, dead. They want the Rule of Law, dead. They want your children's future, dead. They want you to look the other way as the Culture War turns into a shooting war.

They are not your neighbors, your friends in other circumstances and other conversations, they are your sworn enemies and they want you dead.

I know this for a fact, because, I am dead, in a black on white hate crime that no one remembers or talks about. I was killed by the enemy. He wants you dead too.

America hates you white boy.

Forgiveness is just another weapon the enemy uses to get you to turn your back.

The Kansas City Atheist Coalition does not...as usual...have any relevant comments to make about this issue.

But please let them know if you see those kids from the International House of Prayer in Grandview trying to pass out Bibles.

Contact Joshewa their leader.

BLM is a hate group worst then the KKK and Arian Nation.

All Muslims should be suspected of terrorism. Deport most of them. Ban all immigration from heavily muslim countries.

End all welfare. If you take any government assistance you forfeit your right to vote.

Close the boarders.

Deport all illegal aliens no matter how long they been in this country.

Go back to the pre 1965 immigration standard. That will eliminate most 3rd world immigration and make it easier for people in first world, western countries to come here.

Boarders are people you rent rooms to. How do we close those people?

OH YOU MEANT BORDERS. LIKE, NATIONAL BOUNDARIES.

Fact: As of July 2016, the breakdown of the number of US Citizens killed by Police this year is, 238 White people killed, 123 Black people killed, 79 Hispanics, 69 other/or unknown race.


Which leads us to the question. What is the IQ and general educational level of all these protestors? (Other then they can read a social media tweet or Facebook post)

Tony: Might consider taking a break from using other's misery to attract attention, and posting a link to the charitable causes set up to assist the families of the Dallas tragedy?

Never mind. I doubt those causes would generate much interest on this site.

Carry on with your compulsion to generate attention.

11:31 Two wrongs don't make a right--the op leo should not have reacted to the reported posts of police hate and graphics of cop killing on her fb.

11:32 TKC provided appropriate and ample coverage of the Detective Lancaster tragedy. Dallas is not local, but KC
metro's got good, charitable folks who'll likely link with Dallas to assist.

WELL I GOT TO GIVE IT TO YOU TKC.

I bet against you being able to set up a domestic hate site under the guise of 1st Amendment BS.

Lots like I will be paying up. But I had great odds.
