SHOCK!!! KANSAS CITY PROGRESSIVE YOUTH ORGANIZATION CALLS TKC BLOG COMMUNITY 'FILTH' AMID CRUSADE TO FIGHT UMKC RAPE CULTURE!!!
In their latest missive, Kansas City's most strident activists tout their success beyond suspicion of petty vandalism.
Credit where it's due . . . It is impossible to deny the earnest enthusiasm of this young group despite VERY different political views. There is no doubt that they are committed to their cause and willing to put themselves on the line for their beliefs.
Notes on their accomplishments deserve a first look. Here's how they sum up their recent protests:
"The success has been tremendous . . . Almost everyone who we’ve flyered to has taken interest and showed concern, and we have witnessed many discussions triggered by our efforts.
We have learned many lessons from our fellow students. A few of our newer comrades were shy about organizing & getting involved, but thru practice they have transformed. The same comrades who used to be scared to talk to their classmates are now handing out hundreds of flyers in a day. We have heard multiple additional reports from people we’ve flyered with, and are taking on other cases of sexual assault neglected by the UMKC administration."
Campus discussion and offering more reading material are fine pastimes for liberal arts majors . . .
But then they get just a bit mean and kind of ungrateful given that, as a blogger, I've tried to be objective and cover their protests fairly offering quotes while other news outlets regularly ignore them . . .
In the unsigned post, the group calls TKC a "literal basement dweller" which kinda stings but I can forgo any animosity over personal abuse (as always) because they take on nasty comments in a much more direct way and offer more strident criticism regarding the local discourse and American culture overall . . .
Here's their quote:
"The filth who comment on his blog are proud and open rapists who talk about UMKC women like we are objects for their consumption. The success of our campaign is proven by the fear we strike into the hearts of such scum."
And that begs the question . . .
IS KANSAS CITY AFRAID OF THE PROGRESSIVE YOUTH ORGANIZATION (PYO) AND THEIR CRUSADE AGAINST RAPE CULTURE???
Remember that they led some of the anti-Trump protests in 2016-2017 and seemed to be gaining ground in their efforts. However, this year the #MeToo protesting on the local level is just as passionate but hasn't garnered the same kind of outpouring of support.
You decide . . .
