Kansas City Trump Protest Aftermath Ruckus



There might be a few Kansas City dweebs who complain about this all-white political panel but the fact is that more people among our KICK-ASS DIVERSE TKC BLOG COMMUNITY watch the public tv talking head show on this blog than any other place in this cowtown . . . Therefore, our AWESOME TKC FREE SPEECH DISCUSSION kinda even things out.

Anyhoo, here's the description for tonight's show . . .

"Mike Shanin interviews Wendell Cox, principal at Demographia, about an essay he prepared which details the strengths and weaknesses of the Kansas City metro. Then Annie Presley, Jason Grill, Mike Sanders and Crosby Kemper III discuss the future of the Democratic Party, the budget shortfall in Kansas and the recent protests across the country in the wake of Donald Trump being elected president."

Take a look:



You decide . . .

Not much on the riots. I have a feeling none of these folks spent any time out on the streets to watch what was really going on.

Mike Shanin does an EXCELLENT job and this show is one of the most valuable resources in Kansas City.

As you say Tony, those people who criticize him truly are "dweebs" to put it mildly.

Does Jason Grill count as white? His socks are made in China.

Loved Crosby, the magnifying glass was a RUCKUS classic. Presley was vacuous. Grill tried to hard. Sandres the star of this show.

Hey good luck to Donald Trump building those iPhones in the US. That'll only take about 5 years and 30 billion dollars.

"Cheer up, American millennials! I mean, seriously, CHEER THE **** UP! STOP being such a faux-tormented bunch of absolutely deluded cretins... Want to know why Trump is going to be your next president? It’s because he is what’s called a ‘winner’... Well, welcome to the real world, my delicate little Instagrammed snowflakes."

Without Glorioso and Rose the show is much better.

Oh, I do like Ruckus, but to be truthful, what's the local alternatives?

Now that they have their panel selection apparently fixed in regards to presenting a balanced Right vs. Left viewpoint, what bothers me the most is the caliber of the panelists.

Case in point:
Last week, once again, they invited Theresa Garza on the program. Is there no shame? Are they unaware of her local political malfeasance?

This week, we're subjected to another Mike Sanders episode. Now, make no mistake, he's a bright guy, but he's also the former County Executive who abruptly quit and has yet to give a full explanation. Why reward him with these appearances on Ruckus?

Likewise, Jason Grill certainly seems to be a nice guy, but he last served in the MO House years ago, and is another example of someone who went to law school but hates practicing law. Did you know in 2006, the newly-elected Grill was accused of sexual assault? The case went nowhere when the woman later refused to cooperate.

Reminder: Everyone is presumed to be innocent.

RUCKUS should take panel applications from a large number of viewers, screen for basic intelligence and speaking skills, and then rotate them through. Those who distinguish themselves could make a 2nd appearance.

All your competitors are do the wrong thing. Then why couldn't Mayor Sly James had capitalize on that? Is the Mayor an agent provocateur?
