KANSAS CITY PROTESTERS AGAINST TRUMP CHANT 'NOT MY PRESIDENT' AT CITY HALL!!!
Our blog community noted this Kansas City protest FIRST last night and we had a pretty good conversation about this effort that represents local dissent that's part of a movement throughout the nation.
LIKE IT OR NOT, THIS GATHERING OF HUNDREDS OF YOUNG PEOPLE MARCHING THROUGH MIDTOWN STREETS AND STANDING AT THE STEPS OF CITY HALL PROVES KANSAS CITY, MO IS UNITED AGAINST PRESIDENT ELECT-TRUMP!!!
Now here's the aftermath and some INSIDER TESTIMONY FROM THE SCENE COURTESY OF CITIZEN MEDIA . . . As always, TKC TIPSTERS get first word:
Anti Trump March Day One Kansas City
"It's been a bag of mixed emotions as we watched the Democratic Elections melt down Tuesday night. By Wednesday morning we began to see High Schools walk out in Berkley and Los Angeles, street demonstration began across the nation in DC, New York, Austin, Indianapolis, Albuquerque and Oakland among others.
"Locally, we heard statements of teachers crying when they saw on their students faces the realization there is no future for them. As the demonstration passed a bar on Main Street a few bar patrons said, "I voted for Hillary and you don't see me protesting" or another said "I voted for Trump and if Hillary had one you wouldn't see Republicans protesting?" A perfect example of the abandonment of America's Youth by those exiled to a bar stool. America has crossed the threshold into an abyss that not only middle school children realize that remaining silence is an alternate reality. We hear broadcasters tonight say "the police are here to make sure the crowd doesn't turn violent" one of those WTF moments you expect to hear from delusional progressives who believe there's something left in this town worth burning. If there is something to burn the police will let us know just like when MLK was killed. Meanwhile, coastal towns are beginning to realize they can no longer get flood insurance on their houses as we begin to see the end of housing as an investment for retirement ie,. the end of Capitalism and the beginning of Class War. There is no violence like climate disruption and a POTUS with his head in the sand."
Here's a COMPREHENSIVE video from the scene that's much longer and far more in-depth than anything on local mainstream media news today . . .
Still, the very best news links are worth a look:
Fox4KC: Protesters march on Main Street from Plaza to Downtown Kansas City in opposition of president-elect Trump
KMBC: Protesters march through KC streets to condemn Trump's election
