Kansas City Star Submits To Confederate Name Game Rename Hysteria And Rediscovers J.C. Nichols Racism

Here's a column from Steve Krakse that kinda offers a perspective that the newspaper has given up trying to talk about local legislative policy and now dives into culture war blogging. Take a peek:

Steve Kraske: Kansas City should confront racist past and rename J.C. Nichols fountain

This country can never move ahead on race if it continues to memorialize champions of white supremacy. At a time when other cities are rethinking how they commemorate their past, Kansas City should reconsider its tribute to J.C. Nichols, a visionary developer who went to great lengths to ensure that racial and religious minorities could not live in his neighborhoods.

Always a new crusade for these progs. They can never leave well enough alone. And the crusade is always about cultural nonsense.

We doesn't Steve Kraske clean up his own back yard first.

The Miller Nichols Library at UMKC shares the same name with the KC family. Let's Kraske crusade at his own job FIRST.

Oh hell yes. We should scrub the name of Robert E. Lees grave stone, tear down the Jefferson Memorial, eliminate the American Flag because it flew over the country when slavery was legal, outlaw cotton and shred everything in Ameraca any time some cry baby nutball dreams up a reason to be personally offended. One think I have never ever ever fucking heard is anyone moving to stop juvenile delinquents at the plaza calling folks white motherfuckers.Of course that can't possibly be racists because the libtards say so. Why would a sane human being embrace such a concept based on a fucking political snow job? Why can't these whiners find a cause that benefits America in positive ways? Just too damn tuff to live in a modern society without the hands outs?

With the same rational, shouldn't we also rename Emmanuel Cleaver Blvd?

Say what you want about JCN, he was a brilliant developer. Yes, his properties were restricted, but isn't it ironic that these once-restricted developments are still some of the nicest enclaves in the metro more than 60+ years.

Should have never named it in the first place

Just when you might think what's left of the dregs of "journalists" still hanging on at the Star have finally hit rock bottom, one of them like Kraske shows that there's still room to become even more irrelevant and even worse.
And not even original!
And his latest is a column expressing perplexity and astonishment that the homicide and crime rates in KCMO keep increasing.
What else is there to do? he wails.
The Star going under will at least spare the metro the embarrassment of what passes for journalism coming from 18th and Grand.
William Rockhill Nelson must be rolling over in his grave.

JC Nichols originally developed Johnson County for the rich white stockyard owners to get away from their poor white employees from Poland and the Baltics. It didn't start as a race thing, it started as a class thing. Another thing he did was to differentiate the streets of JOCO from the West Bottoms, that is why Wyandotte is different than the rest of the city. As far as segregation goes, that occurs naturally. White people will always move away from black people. There are a million reasons why and none of them are incorrect.

When are we renaming Lyndon Johnson who once said I will have these niggers voting democrat for 200 years or Woodrow Wilson who was a democrat and in the ku klux klan

KC 4 Donald said...

That comment should stay because it is a historical fact and an accurate quote. Sad but true. Johnson was also notorious for exposing himself to his staff in the white house.

Steve Krafty's loathsome virtue signaling probably acquires him some gravitas with all the "Cool Kid" Liberals in town. Another Democrat demagogue whose preachy condescension and ivory tower ideology, in conjunction with support from City Hall and the tax payer subsidized company he works for, The Kansas City Star, inflicts a vacuous and inane interpretation of current events into the newspaper of record for all we Hoi Polloi enjoy.

This is more politically correct poison and it should be choked down only after reading the label on the bottle.

"These lies, from Progressive Thought Leaders will leave your brain necrotic and unable to discern the truth. After ingesting these words, you may have the following symptoms. A strange and unjustified preoccupation with Russia. A sudden need to give away all of your hard earned money to entitled lay-a-bouts who think you are in possession of something called "White Privilege". Dreams about single terminal airports, downtown hotels and really cool street cars filled with 25 million out of town tourists. Desires to "Corn Roll" your hair, which, then lead to uncontrollable guilt about "Cultural Appropriation". Wanting to get "Muscle" to places where people who don't agree with you are, so they can get their asses kicked. Taking pleasure in shouting down other people when they don't agree with you. Feeling of needing to shoot those who don't agree with you, or, even hitting them when they are not looking, say, with a bike lock, or, an egg, or, sucker punching them. If these symptoms persist, and, you have not been locked up, then see a doctor, or, just quit reading dumb fucks like Steve Krafty.

Let's start taking the Plaza apart because it represents white privilege. We can take out the Nichols Fountain and leave a nice hole in the ground. We can remove all the Spanish architecture and the other fountains and sculpture just because. We can urge all the upscale stores to move to the OP suburbs, and then we can turn out the lights and call it done.

One minute Tracy is loving on chuck and the next minute she is sucking off Jay Liberal Jackoff Post. Sounds to me like a woman who swings both ways any maybe into threesomes.

chuck said...

Thanks Tracy!

Krafty's vulpine views are clumsily 'Krafted' at the feet of his very own "Thought Leaders". A supplicant in search of the same supercilious Socialist high ground, where the loaves and fishes (Read Taxes), magically multiply when layers and layers of guilt are slathered onto and into the political psyche of an uninformed and lazy electorate, by such venerable luminaries as Maxine-Mensa-Member-Waters.

GUILT!!!! GODDAMNIT!!! FEEL GUILTY NOW!!!!!

Fuck off Krafty.

The hole where the fountain was would be a good place to bury all the dumbfucks in Missouri. You might have to dig it alot deeper.

Remember when the Chinese Communists got crazy about changing their history. They tore down sculptor and erased cities all in the name of "Cultural Revolution" Rewriting the events that everyone knew happened. Seems as if the "Racists" have convinced the "good" people to erase the Mistakes of the past. America rewriting history by erasing the bad people.
