TKC TOLD YOU SO!!! THE DAY AFTER: PREZ-ELECT TRUMP HISTORIC VICTORY SHOCKS, TERRIFIES AND DEVASTATES KANSAS CITY POLITICAL SCENE!!!
After years of Democratic Party control and indoctrination, the voters of Kansas City were unprepared to confront the wave of discontent which propelled Donald Trump to the Presidency.
Only our KICK-ASS TKC BLOG COMMUNITY DARED TO CONSIDER THE DAY AFTER A TRUMP VICTORY . . .
And now that day has arrived.
There's a lot of talk about continued fighting, politicking and persistence from local progressive activists.
But the reality is that Kansas City Democratic Party denizens are outnumbered throughout the state and the region. Moreover, Missouri and the nation have profoundly rejected progressive ideals on diversity, gender equality, immigration, international trade and women's reproductive rights.
Now Kansas City stands nearly alone as a progressive beacon in state, region and country that seeks a far more conservative approach to politics and culture.
So far the reaction has been rioting, protests and burning the American flag along with alerts to authorities about the potential for more violence.
LIKE IT OR NOT, THE THREAT OF ANTI-TRUMP PROTEST AND VIOLENCE CONFRONTS KANSAS CITY AS WELL!!!
On a more practical level, so many our political leaders were closely aligned with the current Obama Administration and now seem out of the loop as Democratic Party denizens across the nation have been removed from power by the electorate. Mayor Sly and some of our elected officials probably won't recieve the same cordial welcome from a Trump White House as they did during Prez Obama's tenure.
Tonight there's a Kansas City dance group forum coping with race, place and the aftermath of this election. But even a heartfelt call to understanding seems contrary to the message sent by Trump voters last night.
There's an easy comparison to the recent Brexit but this vote seems more about turning back the clock than regulating international currency exchanges or any of the longstanding grudges held by Eurotrash of all sorts.
Americans turning toward Trump are not only rejecting America's First Black President but also have used their vote as a slap in the face to media, Wall Street even the GOP establishment.
While there's no clear policy agenda, goals or benchmarks for Trump success; what's clear is that Kansas City's place in the politics of our nation has now become more precarious and marginalized as voter mandates to "take back" the nation in order to "Make America Great Again" come by way of diminishing the influence and power of so many local political players.
