SHOCK!!! COLUMNIST JENEÉ OSTERHELDT THREATENED WITH LYNCHING AND FADING KANSAS CITY STAR OFFERS 89% DISCOUNT AFTER NATIONAL ANTHEM SCREED!!!
The tragic reality is that the Kansas City discourse is becoming more divisive and dangerous as the nation grows increasingly divided under President Trump.
A local tweet example for constant readers from Kansas City Star columnist Jeneé Osterheldt . . .
"For writing about Marcus Peters and the importance of equality and justice, I was told I should be lynched . . ."
Screencap . . .
Like it or not, talk of lynching writers FAILS on a number counts . . . Threatening violence against someone for expressing an idea contradicts First Amendment freedom at the heart of the debate over respect for the national anthem. Talk of lynching in defense of the American flag basically confirms protester arguments of systemic racism under the guise of nationalism. Finally, the threat of violence basically destroys far more legitimate arguments which rightfully contend pro athletes should limit their public protest against a beloved American symbol out of respect for the overwhelming majority of patrons, colleagues and authorities protecting sporting events.
Even more interestingly . . .
KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS OFFER EVIDENCE OF THE STAR'S DECLINE AND EXTREMELY DEEP DISCOUNTING DESPITE THE RETURN OF HOOPZ AND MAYBE BECAUSE OF THE NATIONAL ANTHEM OUTRAGE SHE INSPIRED!!!!
Take a look:
AWESOME READER COMMENT: "89% off"? Seriously? Why don't they take the lead of the Streetcar and just give it away."
39 cents might still be too rich for content that insults readers to the point of threatening violence and argues against the National Anthem in the nation's heartland. Nevertheless, this embarrassing discount reveals that Kansas City's largest daily newspaper still struggles to sell their viewpoint to a smaller number of readers every day.
