TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY POWER PLAYERS COORDINATE MEAN TWEETS TARGETING AIRPORT TO PROMOTE MULTI-BILLION DOLLAR PLAN!!!
Social media bullying targeting KCI is the strangest Kansas City tactic we've seen recently in order to persuade locals to support a MULTI-BILLION-DOLLAR plan to build a new airport that nobody really wants.
To wit . . .
OUR KICK-ASS TKC BLOG COMMUNITY DEFENDS MCI AMID KANSAS CITY POWER PLAYERS WORKING TOGETHER IN TO PICK ON THE AIRPORT AND CREATE THE ILLUSION OF CONSENSUS!!!
It really is a shame that politicos, power players and consultants are picking on a defenseless airport rather than debating with real people who might have concerns about public voting or loan schemes without the consent of locals.
Take a look . . .
The mean tweet campaign against KCI started in the Summer . . .
Here's Kansas City power player consultant Jon Stephens bad mouthing the airport on Twitter with the help of former City Council pro-development candidate Jared Campbell. There was even a hashtag that didn't catch-on except among local political denizens.
We've already featured Council Lady Jolie pushing the new airport despite more pressing concerns about rampant crime in Midtown Kansas City. But it's worth a second look for Tuesday as she bullies MCI in this Trump disguise:
Fresh find from BRILLIANT TKC BLOG READERS . . .
Streetcar Authority Executive Director Tom Gerend is now aboard the attacks against the Kansas City Airport . . .
Our tipster tells us: "So Streetcar authority bashing airport authority/city hall? Voters haven't voted against airport $$$." Not sure but I think that's a reference to votes against the streetcar and the lack of public input on the airport so far . . . Except to express skepticism about the plans from the Greater KCChamber of Commerce.

For now . . .
WE'D LIKE TO EXPRESS OUR DISGUST AND DISDAIN FOR POLITICOS, POWER PLAYERS, ALONG WITH PAID PUNDITS AND CONSULTANTS PICKING ON AN AIRPORT THAT KANSAS CITY RESIDENTS LOVE SIMPLY TO PROMOTE THEIR STUPID PLAN THAT NOBODY IS BUYING!!!
Also, their social media illusion of grassroots support is not only deceitful but also insults the intelligence of Kansas City voters . . . Which is actually hard to do nowadays.
But I digress . . .
These so-called "progressives" imagine themselves as compassionate people but don't have any problem taunting, humiliating and degrading an innocent airport (along with all the very dedicated and devoted Kansas City residents who work there . . . ) simply to start an incredibly expensive development project they've already admitted is unpopular.
You decide . . .
