TKC MUST SEE!!! LOCAL SOCIALISM FAIL?!? INTERNETS CROWDFUNDING FOR KCMO BERNIE SANDERS MURAL STALLS!!!
Here's a peek at a hopeful artsy effort that has yet to gain traction . . .
Kansas City Bernie Sanders Mural 2020
Here's the pitch . . .
"We want to exhaust all means of getting Bernie Sander's name out there before the primaries. This includes putting up a large mural on the side of a building in Kansas City MO. The wall we have chosen is on a major east-west thoroughfare that sees thousands of cars a day.
"We have three amazing Kansas City muralists on board . . .In addition we are working with Our Revolution KC, which is an all volunteer run non-profit working for social, racial, environmental, and economic justice. They also are the boots on the ground for the Sander's 2020 presidential campaign here in western Missouri and eastern Kansas.
"We are asking for $3,000.00 to cover the cost of surface prep and night time lighting improvements, paint and supplies, scaffolding and compensation for the muralists labor. We hope this is the first of many murals but we need to start off with a bang. We want to inspire more people to check out Bernie Sanders and understand what he is fighting for.
"All donations will go to the mural, artists, and a maintenance budget to buff out graffiti to keep this looking good through primaries and hopefully into the general."
Fact check . . .
SO FAR KANSAS CITY DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISTS HAVE ONLY GARNERED A COUPLE OF HUNDRED BUCKS FOR THIS CAMPAIGN THAT STARTED AT THE OUTSET OF SUMMER 2019!!!
And so, this lack of cash support either signals a flaw in the cowtown collectivist ideal OR maybe Bernie isn't as popular as many local leftist progressives would like to think.
You decide . . .
