Here's Why The EPIC Chinese National Day Military Parade Is Important For Kansas City
China celebrated 70 years of communist rule this week with a military parade that showcased their global military ambition.
Whilst the marching of deadly weaponry amid roars of celebration from cheering crowds of hundreds of thousands was something right out of Star Wars . . . Allow TKC a brief aside at the risk of overshare . . . Few people know the place or time of their final curtain call but if I get a vote . . . The glorious demise of TKC would take place under the boots of hundreds of hottie Chinese lady soldiers wearing mini-skirts and yelling something horrifying.
A man can dream, a man can dream.
But I digress . . .
More than a few TKC readers think that the China National Day parade merits concern in Kansas City and throughout the nation and so we wanted to explore the topic for the late night.
Take a look at what's creating concern among many locals:
For our late night denizens . . .
CHECK THE TOP 5 REASONS WHY THE CHINESE NATIONAL DAY MILITARY MARCH RESONATES IN KANSAS CITY!!!
1. Take It To The Kansas City Bridge
Buck O'Neil Broadway Bridge is falling apart and will eventually need to be completely replaced sometime in the next five years. There's no cash to do it and political debate and trickery has stalled the decision.
Meanwhile . . .

2. China Cash Crop
U.S. farmers throughout the Heartland stay losing in the trade war with China . . . The display of military might means China is showing the world they aren't going to be pushed around anymore and will earn just a bit more respect as a trading partner.
3. China is keeping score
The parade reminds us that the communist nation has the might to crack down on their populace in a way that's just a bit more straight forward than social justice warriors and right-wing trolls battling it out on Twitter for culture war supremacy . . .
China has started ranking citizens with a creepy 'social credit' system — here's what you can do wrong, and the embarrassing, demeaning ways they can punish you
4. Military Parade As Preview
The good people of Hong Kong are soon to discover that the American news market is fickle and quickly loses attention when things get really ugly.
China could take a ‘much harder’ line against Hong Kong now that National Day celebrations are over
Finally . . .
5. China Doesn't Care About Social Justice, Human Rights Or The Environment
American partisan debate often features name-calling from both sides attempting to tag each other as fascist or dictatorial. SJWs vs. Conservative keyboard warriors should get a good look at the parade in order to witness what a REAL THREAT TO FREEDOM looks like . . . Neither gun rights, choice or protected classes seem to matter much to a regime that stays in power by way of horrific human rights abuses. Big picture even if everyone has a right to voice their concerns; every bit of public outcry we hear from locals about alleged injustice or moral outrage pales in comparison with accusations the world has witnessed over 70 years of communist rule in China.
Tragic irony and/or karma, despite efforts to control the weather this intimidating parade took place under a thick layer of smog as China'a apathy to fix its environment is choking its own population.
Further reading and another late night serving of news for our most dedicated readers even if militarism isn't TKC's bag BUT we can always find bright spots of nearly every culture and have to admit an admiration for the handiwork of General Tso and the billions of chickens he has helped deliciously slaughter. . .
