TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! DEAD-TREE FAKE NEWS REALITY CHECK: KANSAS CITY PARKS BOARD PLANS DISCUSSION OF J.C. NICHOLS FOUNTAIN PROPOSED NAME CHANGE TODAY!!!



J.C. Nichols was one of the many racist old, white dudes who built Kansas City. Currently, his legacy is nothing more than constant conflict betwixt police and violent teen flash mobs on the Plaza and racially restrictive covenants that helped to shape segregation in Kansas City and throughout the nation.

And now . . .

IN THE AFTERMATH OF COLUMNIST STEVE KRASKE'S TROLL COLUMN . . . OPEN DISCUSSION OF THE J.C. NICHOLS FOUNTAIN NAME CHANGE THREATENS THE KANSAS CITY PARKS BOARD TODAY!!!

Exclusive from our KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTER BLOG COMMUNITY . . .

- The Parks Board didn't want to debate a fanciful college professor complaint about some dead white guy who is largely forgotten anyhoo. This KC Board is already reeling from recent murders in KC Parks that have elicited fear throughout the city.

- There is a request for extra security given that discussions regarding the legacy of racism have the tendency to become heated.

- A few members of the Parks Board feel blind-sided by the column and the ensuing interest in both defending the name of the fountain and demanding a change in the name of social justice.

All things considered . . . This should be the most exciting Parks Board Meeting today at 2PM since that one time when a bunch of dog park ladies started barking and had to be escorted out.

Of course, TKC isn't gonna bother going to this showdown regarding Kansas City nomenclature and the fight to remember and accordingly keep on forgetting one of the founding fathers of modern-day Kansas City. . . . But feel free to sit around all day in a boring Parks Board meeting and wait for something fun to happen that the Internets has already run into the ground.

yeah, why discuss murders in the park when we can talk about history with a college professor!

Well done Mr. Kraske, your prank worked perfectly.

An open discussion starts every parks board meeting. This should be good, I wonder if they'll do a sit in. At least it will keep them putting up some entertaining stuff on Titter.

66 murders and kraske has his panties in a bunch about a fountain. I guess that Ivory tower life really does screw with people's priorities.

This whole renaming monuments idea is sort of stupid, it's actually not very productive for progressives like they're trying to erase the history of their own imagined oppression. I guess Snowflake Steve can't bear the thought of looking at history in its context.

Next Kraske should suggest taking down the statue of Jackson in front ot the Jackson County courthouse and then tearing down the Indian Mission in Fairway.
In fact, rename both Johnson County in Kansas and Jackson in Missouri.
Let's be sure we cleanse history of everyone we decide today did something that hurts our feelings.
What's even more amazing than the lack of historical consideration, knowledge, and understanding of the people who suddenly have become so upset about things they've lived around their whole lives, are the embarrassingly cowardly "decision makers" who cater to their every whim.
Every day there's a new fad and taking long-term decisions based on what's trending on social media is the height of irresponsibility.
What's the big new buzz today?

Name it whatever. In 10 years the Star will be gone (less actually) and all the white people will be gone. Have fun.

The sooner the Star is gone the better. It is just nonsense liberal drivel anyway.

These illiterate black kids don't even know who J.C. Nichols was. It's more like lets try to appease these stupid little brats, and it's not going to work.

Change the name of that fountain and you will regret it! I've had enough of this shit.

chuck said...

Let's just rename the whole fuckin city, Lewis Farrakhanville.

Jesus, even then, these ethnomasochistic, Progressive virtue signalers would find reasons every day to hate themselves. Next year, Steve Krafty will be an "activist" in the "Snow Is Racist" coalition and demand that our local weathermen and women make allowances for Black Snow to fall during February, "Black History Month".

I take it back, ONLY Busby, because he hits the trifecta, of being black, gay and Democrat can be allowed to address this extremely sensitive issue of too much WHITE snow in Kansas City.

What, WHAT!???!!! could be MORE racist than WHITE SNOW falling on a fountain named after J.C. Nichols?

Let me be the first to exclaim loudly, throughout the land, that BLACK SNOW MATTERS!!!!!

Krafty and the rest of the 'objective' journalists at the Kansas City Star must, ride around town in a fuckin clown car.

History is important so we can learn from it. Erasing it so we can pretend it never happened every time we direct tourists to the Plaza is extremely hypocritical.

Place a sign at the fountain explaining JC Nichols's achievements while addressing the fact that his policies intentionally and maliciously segregated the city.

Anonymous said...

Also point out the fact that life was better when there was segregation

This is incredibly dumb. Not only because it erases history (shades of Stalin) but also because his daughter-in-law and many of his family are still alive and are here in Kansas City.

Typical lib reaction.. no suggestions of substance to issue that impact people's daily lives. An I feel good about myself jesture is all this is. Renaming a fountain will make KC safer? Did JC break any laws? The libs are quick to cast moral judgment. Should all things named King also be scrutinized as his moral compass needed recalibration.

If it stops the murders I'm all for it.

Why don't the snowflakes focus on the regressive and racist KC tax system. The real agenda of the earnings tax was making sure poor people(mostly black) would be paying. The first earnings tax passed in 1964. Think about snowflakes.

So, all these 66 murders so far in the not so great city of Kansas City have been caused because a dead white guy had a fountain named after him? Will the name change stop the murders? Doubt it. What was the cause of the murders last year and all the years before? Could it be that this city is becoming overrun with poorly educated, idiots that have had no parental involvement while growing up?

"Jackson County" "Jackson County Courthouse" named after a racist President who indirectly ordered the deaths of thousands of native Americans. Once you start down this path, the possibilities are endless.

Bread and circus. Crumbling infrastructure, east side plagued with senseless killings. Gee, I know, let's talk about our racist history. That ought to keep the great unwashed from thinking about what shit heals we really are.

Kraske? What a fucking stooge!

1) He writes for The Red Star.

2) He lives in Kansas, not Kansas City.

3) His radio program Down-To-Nothing is a poorly disguised PR vehicle to promote the status quo.

4) He never met a Liberal Democrat he didn't like, but when it comes to choosing a safe neighborhood with good schools for his own family, he chose JOCO KANSAS, represented by Congressman Yoder (R) and Governor Brownback (R). Can you say HYPOCRITE?

Anonymous said...

Hypocrite is right.

If J.C. Nichols was an evil racist undeserving of having a fountain named after his legacy in KC, then we need to examine Steve Kraske a bit closer.

Where does Mr. Kraske live?

Would anyone be surprised to learn that Kraske lives just west of the Plaza, on the KS side, in a neighborhood made desirable precisely due to it's proximity to the Plaza area?

For all I know, his neighborhood may have even been originally developed by Mr. Nichols, or certainly one of his contemporaries.

The real question is, "Just how stupid is Steve Kraske?"

Anonymous said...

Actually, the Country Club Plaza should also be renamed, because it's certainly NOT a country club.

BLM Plaza might work.

So much for "dead tree media", huh?

Meanwhile, ballots were mailed today for the streetcar extension. Which will be like a free Uber service from Power and Light for the hoodrats to ride down to the Nichols fountain and make mischief and terrorize white couples out on a Saturday night for dinner on the Plaza, or all those white teens with their rented limo for prom.
Then the hoodrats can scamper back on the free streetcar.

Good distraction, Kraske. This is the beginning of the end of KCMO as a great city.

OK Who is going to be the first non black to apologize for being born? Lets get all the crying an whining done and over and when the smoke clears you will still have metros full of lazy boons wanting more hand outs for doing nothing positive. Not si single libtard with the balls to stan up and declare that there is something seriously wrong with this trend? Lets stop the pandering to the folks who need to find a job. I hope they put signed up on all roads entering the Plaza naming it the "J.C. Nichols Plaza". Fuck these morons and their shit.

JoCoPost said...

But of course my favorite vote for most pathetic comment goes to Byron Stalder, suggesting the City!!! put up a sign at the fountain apologizing for Nichols' racism!
Talk about looking for trouble! How about removing the horses in the fountain, and putting up giant 8 foot tall bronze hands, and naming it "Hands Up, Don't Shoot!"
(which never happened, but the MSM told the tale so often, most folks, black and white, believe it did.

When I lived on Karnes Blvd in the 80's and early 90's, there was a dyslexic Mexican gang that shot up the wrong address. Off by a block...Can you say Loe'...??? Rather than Ole'??

Nine bullet holes in the front room picture window. Unable to capture and arrest and jail the known but wily rival gang members, KCPD instead advised the 90 year old white couple to "just stop walking thru your living room--just crawl thru there on your way to the dining room or the stairs to your bedroom."

And when African Americans who did not live within 5 miles started shooting hoops late at night, cranking up their speaker systems and leaving broken Colt 45 bottles around the swingsets at the bottom of the hill on Karnes, the savvy KCPD solution? Cut down the nets. Yeah, that fooled 'em.

Hey, Kraske. when I wrote the Doubleday book with Walt, I never heard any racist talk about Mr. Karnes, but perhaps you dig up something there as well. And while we're at it, since you live in Fairway, let's change the name to UNFairway...

@JoCoPost

I disagree. KC has never been a great city in a while. Last golden age of the city was in the late '70s.

Crime, bad school districts, billion dollar desegregation cases, mayor apon mayor apon mayor spending money on pet projects that no one wanted or cared about. Put arena's or stadiums in the strangest locations that wouldn't build economic development. High taxes and getting zero out of them. I can go on.

Since the calendar read 1980, this town at least KC Proper has done little right.

Oh, Tracy, you seem on edge today. I think I know exactly how to make you better.

I saw Steve Kraske on the KCPT "Week in Review" show shortly after the Streetcar began running. He said on the program that the first thing he and his wife said when riding the Streetcar was "This needs to go to the Plaza". But in the meantime, if Kraske really wanted to take mass transit to the Plaza, he could do that right now on the Max bus. But apparently, he and his wife don't want to ride a bus to the Plaza. I wonder why? Could it be that they'd have to ride with passengers of color?

So let me see, a troll column about a "proposed" name change of a fountain has you bunch of geriatric snowflakes all atwitter? God you people live such sad lives. Especially chuck. Hey chuck tell us again about that fight..that tremendous Alexis Aggreryo fight of yesteryear...my god the forces arrayed against this president...the lickspittle pressssssssssssssssssss!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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. If we just get rid of the names the events will have never happened. That will show everybody that there never was any racism, we will have erased it.
