SHOCK!!! KANSAS CITY STAR COLUMNIST JENEÉ OSTERHELDT: PREZ TRUMP STANDS FOR OPPRESSION & WHITE SUPREMACY!!!
Hoopz continues her partisan culture war crusade against the Prez with help from the so-called Kansas City paper-of-record.
Her latest . . .
Kansas City Star Columnist Jeneé Osterheldt: Trump’s NFL tirade shows the nation who he really is: A white supremacist
This talking point isn't as impressive as her last screed because it basically just repeats a bunch of Twitter rage porn.
But the headline is worth a look:
Sorry for the spoiler but her polemic is barely worth a read and this was the not-so-stunning conclusion:
"It’s time that everyone, no matter what color, religion or orientation, take a knee. We need to be better than Trump, a president who stands for oppression. You think politics has no place on the football field? White supremacy shouldn’t be welcome in the White House."
And all of this assumes that the antics of entertainers has any real bearing on the lives of real people in Kansas City.
Still, what we're seeing here is HARD-LEFT-WING-RHETORIC published as opinion with very little independent or original thought.
Prez Trump is racist, Prez Trump is old, Prez Trump is intolerant and insensitive . . . These messages have inundated the American public since 2016 yet the guy STILL managed to beat Hillary Clinton . . . And THAT is more interesting than any reactionary polemic designed by a group of D.C. think tank hacks and trickled down to the local discourse for Democratic Party loyalists to regurgitate to friends, loved ones and each other.
We'll get into the anthem debate in a second but the subject of this post deserves just a little tweak . . .
IS IT WISE FOR HOOPZ & THE KANSAS CITY STAR TO ENGAGE IN AN ALL OUT RHETORICAL ASSAULT AGAINST PREZ TRUMP GIVEN FALLING SUBSCRIPTIONS & FEWER ADVERTISERS???
To be fair, the criticisms we've seen of this kind of writing are also typically boring . . . Detractors note that Hoopz is Harvard trained and has done well by the freedom which this nation and its flag have provided. And yes, that freedom also includes the right to protest peacefully.
But if name-calling and and angry partisan mutual masturbation is all the the mainstream discourse can provide . . . The then reality is that the "news" is just as FAKE as Prez Trump claims and people are well within their right to pay more attention to the lovable Instagram antics of Doug the Pug - Which they continue to do in greater and greater numbers.
You decide . . .
