TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY #CLOSETHECAMPS CANDLELIGHT VIGIL PROTESTS PREZ TRUMP MIGRANT CRACKDOWN AND UPCOMING ICE RAIDS!!!
Tonight there's a gentle contemplation of a raging culture war planned for Kansas City progressives at a place usually occupied by sleeping junkie hobos.
There's one local news station who has this story but they watered it down and are keeping the local organizers secret.
Here's a pretty decent graphic with a list of KC political groups sponsoring the event so that readers might get a glimpse of the DNC flavor for tonight's sing-a-long:

Candlelight Vigil to protest concentration camp for children
The argument . . .
"Many of us are beyond outrage at the locking up and mistreatment of children who come to this country fleeing dictatorships, violence, and hunger. We must stand up against Trump's racism and violations of human rights before it's too late. We'll have some great speakers, music, poetry and the determination to resist."
Take a look at the promo video that seems a bit more passionate than just some candles, singing and crying during speeches:

And so we ask . .
WILL KANSAS CITY PROTEST TO "CLOSE THE CAMPS" GARNER A DECENT CROWD?!?
Whilst it might seem cynical . . . Friday nights near the Downtown Kansas City loop are usually dominated by self-absorbed hipsters with migrants making their food and not heartfelt SJWs protesting for human rights.
