Aftermath: Great Turnout For Kansas City Advocates For Refugee Rights But Nowhere Close To Reported 2,000 Protesters

Because news is mostly spin and politics nowadays . . . The Kansas City Star claims there were 2000 protesters at a Kansas City rally despite horrific heat and humidity. Don't get it twisted, the turnout for such a hot, muggy day was impressive and certainly newsworthy.

But again, as midterms approach we can see some elements of hyper-partisan media attempting to focus on wedge issues to divide the public that was mostly concerned about staying cool today.

Meanwhile, thankfully, KMBC offered a much more accurate report with better video footage:

Hundreds turn out for 'Families Belong Together' rally in KC

Hundreds of people turned out on a hot Saturday to take part in the Families Belong Together rally at Penn Valley Park.

Refugee families belong together, but not in this country.

Probably 90% of the people there were homosexuals. Very few normal people.

Fuck ms and 18th, subhuman sociopaths. That's the real story, not in this nation , there's already 25 percent of their population in the us.

The pedophiles among the protesters will be glad to know that Mexico has lowered the age of consent to twelve.

Using the same "methodology" that officials claim to estimate crowds like those at Royals World Series parades, riding THE streetcar, and KCMO tourists, there must have been tens of thousands at the "rally" today.
And whatever the actual number, the impact on immigration policy was once again, ZERO.
What's the rally about tomorrow?
Hashtag hot weather?

Two thousand is nothing you have Over two million in the Metro area Not much support and next month it will be another issue. Build the wall GIVE the Dreamers a work visa And stop the illegal crossing. And send them back if they don't come in a port or border crossings .

^^^ I see your fear. Your speech is inflammatory but it's obvious where you are coming from. They disagree with you so you feel threatened. Use your words and tell us why you seem so scared.

"Approximately 2.1 million Salvadoran immigrants and their children reside in the United States. El Salvador is the largest source of immigration to the United States from Central America and Salvadorans make up the second largest unauthorized immigrant population in the United States. Among the 15 groups analyzed here, Salvadorans have the lowest levels of educational attainment besides Mexicans."

From the census. That number has increased to the point, that now, there are 3 million here and 3 million left in El Salvador.

Go the fuck home.

2:34 go fuck yourself, if you love the invaders so much, go live there.

Fuck MS 13 - fuck progs who hate us and want us displaced

Doesn't seem like the Star get anything correct with the decimated staff now.

7:03, the Star didn't get much of anything right before their "decimated" staff, so nothing has changed.

It's funny I don't ever see any of these professional protesters offering to let the roaches stay in their house, but I guess that would mean they would have to actually care about whatever BS view they're pritestingthat day.
