TKC TOLD YOU SO!!! KANSAS CITY ANTIFA SHUTS DOWN RIOT ROOM TAAKE SHOW UNDER THREAT OF VIOLENT PROTEST!!!



A musical culture war story STARTED on TKC and then resonated across the Kansas City and the nation.

To wit . . .

JUST AS OUR BLOG COMMUNITY PREDICTED: KANSAS CITY ANTIFA SHUT DOWN THE TAAKE RIOT ROOM SHOW!!!

Given a 2007 swatstika performance and song lyrics that many describe as "anti-Muslim" - Taake and venues hosting their tour have been under pressure nationally and Kansas City ANTIFA opposition is just part of the pushback from radical left-wing organizations.

The riot room statement today:

"We have decided to cancel the Taake event scheduled to be held March 31st at The Riot Room. Refunds will be processed immediately for anyone who purchased tickets. As a venue, it is our priority to provide a safe, inclusive, and enjoyable environment for all patrons, artists, and staff. This always has, and will always continue to be our primary goal."

Here's one of many threats from a Kansas City ANTIFA . . .

"Come out on Saturday, March 31 at 7 p.m. to the Riot Room, prepared with masks, sticks, shields, and whatever else you might need to make Taake, their fans and enablers fear for their safety. Enough with nazi metal bands, enough with the Riot Room and their nazi apologia. Death to fascists!"

Don't get too worked up . . . The absence of death metal in Westport isn't really a great loss because it's no longer 1998. Also, a lot of the conversation online is comprised mostly of false flags and fake Internets tough guys.

More to the point . . .

Rapper Talib Kweli played the controversy masterfully with his cancellation of a Riot Room appearance and earned a great deal of enthusiastic coverage amid the culture war ruckus.

Meanwhile, Westport is the focus of yet another divisive debate that makes local biz owners seem incompetent and unable to cope with increasingly diverse crowds.

You decide . . .

Now I would've put the rise of death metal at around 94.

But we can agree to disagree.

Looks like the show outside would've been more interesting than anything on stage.

Jameson said...

So now we have to clear all shows with Antifa? Seems a bit unfair. Not going to defend Taake but threatening to shut down local events that you disagree with politically sets a dangerous precedent.

KC Irony: Without the help of antifa, this show would've been completely unnoticed and might have only attracted 50 people tops.

We don’t need Taake. Can’t we have an Antifa protest anyway? I want to see them violently curb stomped.

Anonymous said...

I guess with a name like "riot room" they can't afford to take any chances.

What a bunch of wusses. They don't seem to stand up for anything other than making a buck off the drunks and dregs who troll their establishment.

I agree antifa is setting up a dangerous situation, and has added attention to something that probably would have been an unnoticed venue. Antifa has been named the ISIS of America, they need to be stopped!

Anonymous said...

^^^^ +1 About the dangerous situation, when you promote violence against your political enemies, you end up encouraging the same action against you. Violence begets violence. That's what Billy Graham taught me.

Don't know anything about this band or its members or music . Shutting down there ability to perform is the same as shutting down Milo and other conservative poeple , or shutting down the Farrakhan and Reverend Wright ability to speak ? Thoughts on this , anyone who's interested ????

Another example of those who claim the moral
High ground showing their intolerance and
Exclusionary ways!

Big Karl Popper said...

Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them.

Think about it.

^^^ O.K. I thought about it.

I you submit to threats to Commies SCUM like ANITFA, you are surrendered your society.

Threats aren't a way to win people over.

Kinda hoping that ANTIFA could come up with a better alternative show with a bigger crowd and more support.

The political theatrics in this discussion are even worse than 80s hair bands.

congrats antifa , you get an extra special circle jerk with jizz on top now!!!! ninja homos with sticks , whomever came up with that , kudos to you good sir/madam , spot on analogy

Rebels without a cause. How many of the 150 murders in kc belong to "nazis"...but those squirmy masked bandits wont protest thugs...matter fact there was a young gay guy killed in Westport last year did a nazi do that....nope. Rebels without a clue logic or honor.

Anonymous said...

Wouldn't what ANTIFA said about violence be the same as a terroristic threat? I can't stand Justin Bieber either but if you want to waste your money seeing him go right ahead and same applies to this TAAKE band.

Hello KCPD!!!!!!!! Public threats against citizens doesn’t warrant a mental health checkup on the author of this!!! I’m asking as a concerned citizen & resident of this ciy that appropriate action be taken against these terroristic threats to society!!!! I know you monitor this & unless you have a “stand down” order against these thugs from the mayor or council, then the onus is on you if people get harmed or worse. Is the Parkland tragedy already in your rear view mirror?

KC is not home to hate, good riddance to this creep band.

Muslims want to blow us up and cut our heads off. If you're not anti-Muslim there's something wrong with your head.

9:46 is right, i think it’s time the governor shuts down sLIE’s constant interference with the police dept. It’s also time the FBI gets involved.

Much rather see, listen to Taake than another dime a dozen hiphop rapper. Hiphop culture is much more of a threat to KC citizens than metal. As for antifa, masked pussies.

Good for them!

Nazi's deserve violence, because they would visit violence on us.

I see the Russians are still doing a great job of creating conflict in the US social media.

Wonder what their master plan is? Guess we'll find out.

Okay, Tovarichy, continue.

What does the KANSAS CITY ATHEIST COALITION know about ANIFA and WHEN did they know it?

Why not contact their President?

Anonymous said...

Why isn't the FBI looking at these threats?

With them on the job, no need to worry.

Look how good a job they did in Florida.

Anonymous said...

Does ANTIFA get support from the Russians?

just saying said...

^^^ Not just one group, it's a lot of people who don't like Nazis. May not agree with their tactics but there's nothing wrong with opposing racists. Seems like a lot of the Russians just want to stir up hatered in our country. Wish we could have an honest conversation about how we can all live together peacefully.

What if we don't want to snowflake. ^^^

just saying said...

^^^ Most people want to live peacefully. Only the desperate and angry ones thrive on creating hatred. Ultimately that is self destructive behavior but it endangers others too. If you are filled with hatred the person that you're hurting more than anyone is yourself.

Fascism as cult worships violence as the US has witnessed two mass murders in the past 90 days by neo Nazi sects seeking violence as a form of spiritual cleansing. This is by no means a reflection on the heavy metal community of fans that exist in the thousand's in the Kansas City metro area. The heavy metal scene started in Kansas City and Salt Lake City almost 40 years ago. I can say from experience there are many fine musicians and performers here that are connected with the community who share in the joy of music.

"Antifa" is just one of thousands of little groups of losers desperate for attention and who can amplify their numbers and "importance" through social media.
Only what passes for "journalists" pay any attention to groups like this and their claims and threats, just like the local television "reporters" cover any fake vigil or protest, most of which involve a couple dozen people at best.
It's way past time to call clowns like this out for what they really are.
Phonies and losers desperate for attention.
Ignore them.

6:01 two neo nazi mass murders in the past ninety days? Are you effing serious? What planet are you on? Now any one with a mental disability is a neo nazi? This is the whole problem with you dumbass’s. You make shit up to serve your sick, twisted progressive narrative. You idiots are the threat to this country and the police, FBI, homeland security and any other law enforcement agency needs to take you people out, your the mental illness in this country

chuck said...

FBI = Stasi. Corrupt, Biased, Fascist organization that with the help of the DOJ and IRS, spies on citizens at the request of their Progressive overlords who seek a one party nation, where they are perpetually voted in to office, by newly arrived immigrants, who live off of the sweat and hard work of an ever declining middle class tax payer.

The "sick twisted narrative" is yours 6:26 and all of you Progressive, Democrat liars who refuse to see the facts as they exist, right in front of your lying eyes.

Go prepare another "Dossier" for your Commissar overlords.

You say Antifa does not like Nazis?

Neither did Stalin.

But he was still a blood dictator. Just because you don't like Nazis doesn't mean you can't still be a threatening, murderous, thug.

Anonymous said...

Antifa has much in common with the Nazi Party. Both are intolerant, totalitarian movements originating from the left.

ANTIFA groups get money from the Russians.

No doubt about it.

Does the Kansas City Atheist Coalition have any ties to Antifa?

Does anyone know?

I tried to contact them, but they have refused to answer.

It's easier to cause a distraction rather than discuss the unpleasant issues of American Culture. America has lost it's supremacy on the global stage and it wasn't terrorist from the Middle East that are committing acts of terror. It's mainly young boys, men and as we've seen in Las Vegas older Americans are beginning to take it out on the rich.
