TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY SKIPS LIBERTY MEMORIAL WWI CENTENNIAL!!! DOWNTOWN DENIZENS REPORT SKIMPY CROWD DESPITE HYPE!!!
Today the 100 year anniversary of the so-called "Great War" was mostly forgotten in Kansas City despite a media blitz and a crowd that was mostly packed with people paid and/or required to attend.
To wit . . .
KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS OFFER 1ST PERSON REPORTING AND PHOTOGRAPHIC EVIDENCE OF THE SKIMPY CROWD FOR TODAY'S LIBERTY MEMORIAL WWI CENTENNIAL!!!
Here's the word followed up by photo proof . . .
We were ALL told to not come to the office today (over 1,000 people) because of the chaos and confusion that would reign near Crown Center and the Liberty Memorial. All streets closed...tight security...important dignitaries on board...don't go near it, unless you had a ticket.
It looks like maybe a few hundred actually showed up.
They promised that 3,000 tickets were "sold out." Ticketholders had to be there early this morning because the gates would close at 9am and remain that way.
What happened? Did you see the live stream?
Go to 4 hours, 26 minutes, 01 seconds - right after the B-2 flyover. I think that shot tells the entire story.
Now . . .
THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE CEREMONY WAS A B-2 BOMBER FLYOVER THAT REVEALED EXCEPTIONALLY SPARSE ATTENDANCE!!!
Take a look:
To be fair, the bomber flyover was kinda cool and maybe a missed opportunity . . .
Still, the militaristic celebration clearly missed the mark as Kansas City residents skipped the war memorial and probably had a better time enjoying the nice weather at a park that isn't dedicated to tragic death and wasted lives ruined by an incompetent and uncaring ruling class.
You decide . . .
