TKC QUESTION: MAGA 'GO BACK' MOVEMENT ALL GOOD IF WE CAN ALSO DEPORT BROKE-ASS WHISKEY TANGOS?!?
Whilst the current political epoch is mostly about playing the victim, our TKC blog community is eager to join the side of the bullies . . . Or whoever wins a fight, election or the stripper who proves victorious in a hot-oil-wrestling match.
If a bunch of plebs want to pretend they have something in common with a billionaire who owns hotels around the globe . . . That's their prerogative inasmuch as some people play pickleball which is also a waste of time.
Last night the MAGA rhetoric might have reached the tipping point as a crowd chanted for the deportation of a member of the U.S. Congress.
Fox: 'Send her back' chant at Trump rally prompts outcry
Again, we didn't get this far and become the only real news source in Kansas City by being judgemental. Chanting isn't my bag but YOU DO YOU!!!
Today the local NPR radio station urges progressives to cry crocodile tears about the sentiment and weep publicly:
For People Of Color In Kansas City, 'Go Back Where You Came From' Is A Familiar Refrain
Documenting the "go back" rhetoric is important and if we're honest it's a fake tough guy sentiment that has also been thrown at Jewish people, Italians and even the more authentic Irish -- All of whom are ethnic but don't enjoy the 'people of color' identity politics hall pass.
But rather than get into a snoozer-PBS-style diatribe on the American immigrant experience . . . Let's have some fun . . .
CAN WE DEPORT BROKE-ASS WHISKEY TANGOS IN ORDER TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN?!?
- Walmart would be much nicer.
- Meth problem in Missouri disappears overnight when the WT population is moved to Tijuana.
- Guy Fieri would be forced to follow his patrons to Mexico.
- WT had their chance/privilege and all they could do with it is talk about opening a vape shop.
- The women under 255lbs can stay along with any WT dude under 30 without a neck tattoo because we believe in restorative justice.
Again, to be fair, we can't pretend to be offended or surprised by the MAGA "GO BACK" MOVEMENT because TKC has also heard the phrase last year and pretty consistently growing up. Full disclosure: Up until 2016, TKC also regularly yelled "GO BACK TO BUCKNER!" at equally rude drivers - We're not innocent in the decline of Western Civilization. However, fun fact: Bucker actually has one of the best pizza places in Jackson County. But I digress . . .
The point here is that telling people where to go feels wonderful but it's not classy, effective or a characteristic of truly great statesmanship. It's just an insult that any scumbag can repeat.
You decide . . .
