TKC SATURDAY NIGHT PLAYLIST!!! SMALLISH OVERLAND PARK 'SPIRIT OF AMERICA' PREZ TRUMP RALLY STAYS LOSING!!!
The good people of Johnson County were out in full force to support Prez Trump this afternoon but what they really displayed was waning support for the controversial leader among only a die hard niche of old school supporters.
Don't get it twisted . . . TKC celebrates any effort to get off the couch and into the streets . . . Instead of partisan rhetoric, we simply want express the same kind of skepticism shown toward EVERY local protest and why it also applies here . . .
However . . .
LIKE IT OR NOT, TODAY'S OVERLAND PARK "SPIRIT OF AMERICA RALLY" STAYS LOSING TO BIGGER, BETTER AND MORE STRIDENT CRITICS OF PREZ TRUMP IN KANSAS CITY PROPER!!!
There wasn't a report of a single arrest so it's clear that these political denizens weren't doing anything groundbreaking, controversial or very much fun.
But let's delve even deeper . . .
First up . . . A simple glance at the crowd proves that time isn't on their side. Most of the participants were seniors, retirees and the elderly of Johnson County.
Contrast this image with younger, more energetic and excited critics against the Prez.
Secondly, and most importantly . . .
THIS WAS AN ALMOST COMPLETELY WHITE CROWD!!! LIKE IT OR NOT, THE LACK OF DIVERSITY AND HURTS PREZ TRUMP FANBOYS IN THE LONG RUN!!!
To be fair, there's nothing wrong with playing to the base and it's fine to rally suburbanites and keep'em separated for awhile . . . But sooner or later people have to venture outside of their bubble and start building a coalition - This has how politics has works since the beginning of time but still remains a weak point in the skill set of the current Administration - Which is part of why they've been so easily outflanked on all issues pertaining to Russia.
Notice that bigger crows turn out for stuff like the "Fight For $15" in Kansas City proper signaling that a real policy agenda and economic benefit better serve to bring together people from different backgrounds . . .
And this speaks our final point of in the only objective analysis of this even in the Kansas City metro . . .
It's a shaky, shaky premise for Trump supporters to demand total allegiance and support for Prez Trump given how much they worked to undermine, obstruct and insult Prez Obama.
Prez Trump deserves every bit of ridicule and opposition that he gets given that he has helped more than anyone to lower the level of American discourse . . .
Double bonus if we're going to get crass . . . The pro-immigration rallies have been bigger and much more fun . . . Second only to all of the lady protesters rallying for domain over their private parts with bawdy signage.
Again, we applaud protesters of every stripe but a lack of clever signs, funny hats, people of color or any hotties proves that this display of support is just as bland and boring as the network TV reality show fare that made Prez Trump famous in the first place.
Still, we'd like to have a conversation with our blog community on the topic of pro-Trump "Spirit Of America" protest. Do you think it was successful?
Either way, thanks for reading this week and have a safe and fun Saturday night.
