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.

Checkit:

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 . . .

You can't blame that man for speaking his mind. What he says has a lot of merit and if a Conservative is saying this about the President just think about what the Democratic Party thinks. Already the President has inspired a historic flip in the house. He's only going to cause more damage. At the end of his term the Republicans will be destroyed. I know a lot of people won't believe it and it won't really sink in when the GOP finally gives up a Kansas senate seat.

Scott isn't one of my favorites and I don't think his anti-trump talk is going to help him. Bottom line, the show just really isn't worth the time.

Scott has become a whiny lil,holier than thou bitch since he stopped sucking down booze everyday,almost as bad as the whiny twink Michael Mackie.

Parks is just toeing the line. He's been told what to say and do. He needs to remember President Trump was a Democrat when he was a P---y grabber!

Anonymous said...

The only reason that Trump has the lousy reputation he does is based off the main stream media. Anyone with a brain can see that he has not dammaged the country or put us in some shitty war. If we didn't have social media and 24/7 news cycles that hate the man, then we could be living the 80's again. Instead we live in a world where everyone is offended by everything, everyone is a victim and politics is the main story all the time. I personally never cared for parks. Him and dana sound like he's the caveman/bad boy that she is trying to pussify.

Easy to understand, Parks has had a heart attack and been slapped in the face by Reality, plus he has a father's natural reaction to a predatory slimewad.

And Barney, if I were you I'd be careful about mentioning "whiny lil' holier than thou bitches"!

He is doing the right thing. Trump needs to be opposed by people in the right of good conscience. Glad to listen to him.

I listen to the show and I'm a Republican who is not a Trump supporter. Parks has clearly been influenced by Dana Wright and his girlfriend who he admits voted for Sharice Davids. He has become increasingly liberal since being around them.

Barney Frank said...

Why,is the person with most testosterone on the show (Dana)gonna come after me?

Anonymous said...

Scott Parks likes to discuss negative stories about Republicans but rarely brings up negative stories about liberals because Dana Wright
will say she doesn't want to talk about it. Whenever he says we don't
talk about politics or Trump on this show that means he's going to spend the whole hour talking about it.

Who the F is Scott Parks? And why would anybody care about his opinions?

Middle class folks are starting to get their tax returns done and seeing that their refunds are lower than expected or that they actually have to pay taxes for the first time in years because their usual deductions got whacked by Twit-In-Chief and his minions tax cuts are pissed. All Parks is doing is being a moderate Republican. Cadet Bonespurs is even starting to see resistance among Republican lawmakers in D.C. as well because they see the 2020 writing on the wall and they know that even if Trump is still in office in 2020 which becomes more doubtful by the day that Pence can't win either.

The never trumpers are interesting. For decades they campaigned on issues they knew they never intended to make happen. They believes in the “we are the world” bullshit, but never admitted it. The GOP voters finally had enough of it and elected trump. 2016 election was more about eliminating the globalist republicans than it was about beating clinton. The never trumpers are in reality democrats who look down their noses at people in general. Both parties have become a ruling class that doesnt give a shit about the regulator people of America and we dare elect someone who fights them, we get insulted by them. I have no love for democrats, but at least they dont spit on their voters

Dana Wright is dumber than a box of rocks, worst talk show person evar, Scott has to dumb down the show to her and the liberals level or he will be out of work, period.

Wow. Rarely have I seen a relatively young face more damaged by alcohol.

Just another yapper in a dying industry, thinking he found something meaningful to say. Problem is we already have Trump hate 24/7, which makes this drunk even more irrelevant.

Scott has joined the dark side thanks his partner, Dana. It was a slow process but now complete. Like boiling a frog, just raising the heat a little at a time. Parks took the poison one drop a a time from Dana. Sad thing is he doesn't realize what happen to him. Lets just call him Mr Dana Parks.

Tax refund? Why would any rational person make an interest free loan to the government? Plan your withholding and quarterly estimated advance taxes so that you owe the government (but not too much!) on tax day, and not vice versa.

The President is not the only dynamic. He sails easily to reelection, as the entire media/entertainment complex has been crying wolf about him since day one. The Dems have no viable candidates and a ferocious split is already happening between crazy socialists and the old guard. Never mind that the left is still picking up the pieces after Obama's disastrous effects at the ballot box over his tenure.

Anonymous said...

Mythology. Trump wins easily, because the Dems have yet to come up with an issue aside from hating him. Also, no real Dem candidate is in play and the clock is ticking.

The world is one GREAT HOAX. And so is Scott Parks .You need some one to fact this guy.they have been building a barrier slowly for over two decades. Trump Just wants it done faster. SCOTT SHOULD worry about Politicians in his community .all politics are local Many problems in this community .Taxpayers are being Hoodwinked Buffaloed. You will be paying for an airport that will start falling apart five to ten years after it is built. Crime and drugs in the Suburbs .Scott do something for your community. This Trump deal is a distraction while the Metro falls apart.

Parks peaked when he was teamed with Shannin. It was a show people tuned into to listen because it was good. Now with Dana he has fallen down in integrity and common sense. I got tired of his ranting and raving and turned off my radio about three years ago and haven't been back sense. Rode with a friend one day and he had the show on. Parks gives his insincere laugh and acts so smart but he comes off as an idiot. I convinced my friend within 20 minutes to give us a break and not listen for an hour, he hasn't been back to it either since then. One day Entercom will realize they pay this doofus too much money and he will just be another unemployable radio jock. The only thing worse than Parks on radio now are the talking heads that have sports shows. All opinion on how to spend owners money but no skin in the game.

Scott Parks doesnt understand how much strength is needed in the oval office right now to fight off this lib crap. Is Trump perfect? No, but Parks reminds me of the type who thought Jeb Bush would be better. Pushover politics.

Trump is the greatest president in a hundred years. If His America First wishes were carried out we would stop being the world's police. He would end all the named and unnamed wars we are involved in. Defend our boarders and produce more than we can use and sell it to the rest of the world. He has made us the number one producer of petroleum in the world, without much support. We will never get another citizen president after him.

Why is Nationalist a dirty word ?

Captain Starbucks would win. But the Dems will never go with him, since he is not a crazed Cortez-style Junior Commie and doesn't fill enough diversity categories like Kamala 'sucked Willie Brown like a trouper to get ahead' Harris.

People won't get over the pussy grabbing thing "which was bad" but they will praise Bill Clinton who did worse. If you don't like Trump that's just fine go ahead and vote for Bernie who says ALL women want to be raped!

If all anyone has is the pussy thing against Trump and the boarder wall then you really don't have much.

That entire radio station jumped onto the Trash Trump bandwagon two years ago, when they expanded their cussword usage. All of their talkers now lean more liberal, including Parks and that seems to be the editorial position the station takes, even with the morning drive time hosts.

I had to quit listening to the program 2+ years ago, couldn't stand listening to Dana and her hysteria over everything.

And that cackle!!

It's even gotten to the point that when I listen to the rest of the shows on KMBZ and Dana does a commercial, I note who it's for, decide they don't need my money and change the channel so I don't have to listen to her voice....that's how bad it is....................

Conservative or liberal is immaterial; Dana and Parks is the dumbest waste of airtime in KC. They’re pathetic examples of people that reached their personal best in high school and who are desperate to hang on to their glory days. I would rather listen to the National Weather Service emergency test.

Fake media.

Retail sales surged last month, up another 6 percent over last year.

All the show host on 98.1 are a parade of insecure lefty clowns, some more obnoxious than others though Johnathan is the king of insecure. Parks has issues outside of work that have infiltrated the show. I quit listening over a year ago because it was fatiguing to listen to fat mouth Dana go on and on with her psycho babble about her various health issues, like we care at all. Looking forward to a time when management revamps the show host but not tuning in again until that happens.

Never forget that Kansas picked Cruz over Trump by more than 20 points. Think about it.

I don't listen to Dana and Parks anymore. They don't adult very well.

Parks was Shannin’s Assistant. Once Shannon retired, and he teamed up with the cackling local Kardashian he has went liberal. That is the audience they play to in their “entertainment” format. Dana has probably used his head to motorboat those fake fun bags to the point where he is brain damaged. Listen to 710AM for intelligent content. No pussy hat required.

Ok well here is how it works. Tomorrow listen to 980. You will get so many commercial breaks it will drive you insane. Then you will hear “coming up this and that” as if a discussion is about to happen, but wait....there’s more. Commercial after commercial. Yeah I get it you have to pay the bills but the amount of advertising on 98.1/980 is nauseating. What’s worse is how Dana or Scott pretend they will be right back to chat and it goes right into another commercial break forever. They literally try to trick you to stay tuned.


Then you get to hear about scott having a guiness because he has nothing else to really talk about besides debating Dana who thinks hillary clinton is an honest career politician and that the ACA promise of keeping your doctor is legit. I’m sorry but Dana needs to stop with the lies on the ACA and that illegal immigration somehow makes this country safer. Scott Parks is a Mitt Romney type of guy. That says enough about him. You know...claims conservative but really stands lock step with establishment governance. What a phony. Hey there scott go
Have a beer with Jeb bush and tell us all how great the bush family agenda is and how awful trump
Is.


You know wha scott, I’m calling into your show tomorrow to educate you.

Scott Parks has had his head smashed when he flew threw the windshield of a car because he was dumb enough to no wear his seatbelt. On top of that he's had a string of failed relationships because he doesn't know how to treat women. Who is really surprised about his feelings regarding Trump. And who really gives a shit?

It's just a matter of time until the Dana & Parks show will be cancelled.
