TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY STAR FAKE NEWS FACT CHECK: AFTER PUBLIC DISCUSSION PARKS BOARD REPORTS 'NO IMMEDIATE PLANS' TO CHANGE J.C. NICHOLS FOUNTAIN MONIKER!!!



Earlier in the week a Kansas City newspaper columnist proposed that the J.C. Nichols Fountain near the County Club Plaza should undergo a name change akin to efforts in Southern states that have torn down Confederate Civil War memorials.

The reaction to the idea has been overwhelmingly negative and our blog community was the FIRST to report serious consideration of the idea by the Parks Board - The first authority in determining fountain and park nomenclature.

Here's what we've learned so far . . .

- The Steve Kraske column didn't trend very far beyond the local chattering class in terms of support. At the first open discussion following the publication of the column there were no supporters of the name change idea.

- In fact, locals have expressed an interest in keeping the name intact in order to provide context of Kansas City's sordid history that is quickly being forgotten.

- An insider from the Parks Board was actually surprised about the lack of real world interest given social media rage.

Here's the message from Kansas City Insiders close to the Parks Board:

"Right now we have no immediate plans to change the name and frankly there are more important things we're working on this Summer. For the most part people don't complain about the fourtain because most visitors don't now anything about the reputation of J.C. Nichols, so I guess the Star's readers benefited from the history lesson. A couple of council members have expressed interest in the subject but more as a gauge of public sentiment which isn't really in favor of a rename at this point -- If the first public discussion is any indication . . . "

Conclusion . . .

WHILE THE CHATTERING CLASSES CELEBRATE THE KANSAS CITY STAR EFFORT TO REWRITE HISTORY, THERE'S NO REAL OUTRAGE OVER THE LEGACY OF J.C. NICHOLS LOCALLY OTHER THAN WHAT WAS FABRICATED BY MSM!!!

And so, with doggies and white guys killed in Kansas City parks as of late . . . We can't blame locals for failing to be triggered by the teachings of a mostly retired journalism professor.

You decide . . .

Kansas City has some common sense after all. Good to know.

Who gives a shit? Until the hoodrat parents stop dropping off their niglets and find something for them to do and stop waiting for the city or the public to help them, that place will continue to be infested by darkness.

Jonsie said...

I don't think we're talking about common sense. More like ignorance.

Read between the lines. Kansas City residents are forgetting their history, and that's why they're doomed to repeat it. The J.C. Nichols legacy is really about real estate trickery with the help from local government. That kind of thing is still going on today.

Sad day for Kansas City when the racists win and we prove that we don't even know our own history. I guess this is another thing the schools aren't teaching.

There is a big difference between racism and realism. Realistically, nobody wants black people in their area, because they commit crimes.

Seems like Nichols had the right idea after all.

"Free KC"

Hey, ya know what? I think they should rename it too!

Let's call it, "The Michael Brown Memorial Fountain" and close it in with an enormous "Johnny On The Spot" shitter, that only white people can enter, where they shit and piss on the memory of another fake news hero who NEVER HAD HIS HANDS UP.

Eat shit and die.

I get the frustration "Darren Wilson" but you shouldn't blog using his name. He's a class act that got screwed by the media and "activists."

You cannot trust Mark McHenry at the Park Board. He is a lier just like Sly..

BREAKING!!

Liberal pansy Kraske now claiming that Colonel Swope once told an off-color joke in private.

Swope Park MUST be renamed!

Parks Dept. would spend thousands of dollars to change signage.

If theses black people keep this crap up, the table can sure turn!

Change the name of the fountain and Kansas City just might not have any fountains!

J.C. Nichols had a right to his opinion doesn't mean everyone has to agree with it, he built the Plaza and a lot of homes in the area, like it or not he's a huge part of our history!

If we are determined to rid KCMO of all the historical leaders who did bad things then lets rename everything with the name Truman, after all he got his political start from Pendergast. James A Read was known as a scoundrel but he has a street named after him. Martin Luther King was an adulterer yet we rightly honor him because of his accomplishments. We should laud Nichols accomplishments and celebrate that his mistakes were remedied.

It's a good thing you don't back up your blistering analysis with any facts whatsoever.

KC should name more landmarks after those who've actually accomplished something..i.e...Kauffman, Nichols etc --

and remove those named after political hacks scammers like Cleaver and Berkley

Sad day for KC when we want to Stalinize our history instead of using it to teach. You would fit in well at the Ministry of Truth.

If the KCMO park board clown school grads are anything like the KCK park clowns, you can count on stupid and costly crap no one needs or wants.

They're nothing but a group of appointed lame asses who sit around and listen to themselves talk. Talk and get their gas, food and invites to parties so they can pretend they are important. Useless, worthless, and full of crap.

KCK spent $80 grand on a master plan that was filled with towers and other ridiculous crap. The new master plan was around $150 grand. No one on the planet can think of ways to spend money faster on foolishness than local un-elected clowns.

Damn those Star reporters must have went to the same fake news school as TKC.

Kraske is a second rate reporter who will never make it to the big times.

Kraske is the typical Liberal hypocrite. If he really believed in his cause, he would open a vein and drown in his own self loathing blood.

The world would be a better place.

Love him or hate him, JC Nichols created some of the most beautiful parts of the metro, including my own neighborhood. I appreciate him every time I take a walk by the creek, statuary and fountains that grace our landscape.

J C Nichols provided much employment for the metro for many years. More than a few who'd been struggling against "Irish Need Not Apply" in KC, were apprenticed by Nichols. That pipeline of talent built up local contractor firms for decades. Sons and daughters of Irish and other immigrants soon appeared in society papers and country club rosters. Several Erin-descended KC families continue in ownership of general contracting and engineering companies.
