TKC SUNDAY SPECIAL!!! OTHERWISE CONSERVATIVE KANSAS CITY TALKER SCOTT PARKS LEADS LOCAL MEDIA RESISTANCE AGAINST PREZ TRUMP?!?!
There's a dearth of overtly political discussion among the denizens of Kansas City mainstream media given the town's obsession phony middle-class social graces.
Nevertheless, as locals increasingly abandon legacy media in search for more authentic voices, one local talker has undergone a bit of a switcheroo amid the current political epoch.
To wit . . .
TALKER SCOTT PARKS HAS INCREASINGLY BECOME ONE OF THE HARSHEST CRITICS OF PREZ TRUMP IN KANSAS CITY!!!
This is notable because about 5 years ago Mr. Parks was a strident Conservative and rarely strayed from the party line. In fact, his far-right perspectives typically made his old partner Mike Shanin seem like a bit of lib.
As usual, the Presidency of Prez Trump has inspired a complete shift in alliances . . .
Not only is Mr. Parks quite outspoken against the Prez during his talk show weekdays with co-host Dana Wright, he also shares typical social media hateration of the Prez throughout the day.
A quick sample of a typical Scott Parks tweet:
"Thinking Trump is an awful human being makes me a “radical liberal”? Interesting."
Regarding challenges to his core values:
"You claimed I changed my values. Come on, man. LIST ONE VALUE. I am on the air four hours a day. Certainly, you can name ONE. I'll wait. (PS: You think I changed my values because I refused to stoop low enough to support the p****grabber. You're better than this)"
On politics and the eternal question:
"The wall is not under construction. HE is lying to you. And pray? This is a man who once said he can't recall the last time he talked to God. Yet, the religious right defend him at every turn."
To be fair, opposition to the Prez isn't uncommon among Republicans and otherwise loyal Conservatives . . .
Some of my favorite somewhat recent articles on the trend:
The Hill: 'Never Trump' conservative says GOP could pose 'existential threat' to US
Bloomberg: Anti-Trump Conservatives Aren’t Ready to Reclaim the GOP
NYMag: Trump Has Officially Made ‘Conservative Ethics’ an Oxymoron
Nevertheless . . .
The reality is that the terrestrial radio conversation and most broadcast MSM in the Greater Kansas City area skew conservative in terms of political vantage.
And so we ask . . .
IS SCOTT PARKS RESISTANCE TO PREZ TRUMP A BOLD STANCE OR SIMPLY A DESPERATE ATTEMPT TO ENGAGE FEWER LISTENERS?!?!?
You decide . . .
