TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY ACTIVISTS PLAN ANTI-WAR PROTEST AMID IRAN MISSILE ATTACK ON U.S. TROOPS!!!



Just launched about an hour ago along with an attack on the U.S. military, here's the statement from progressive activists as more than a hundred locals have already joined a movement to organize anti-war rallies across the nation . . .

"Trump's reckless action has needlessly endangered countless lives of U.S. troops, Iraqis, Iranians, and countless other civilians. The devastation that a war with Iran could bring upon the earth and humanity cannot be overstated—millions of lives hang in the balance. None of us will win, except politicians and corporations. Even more resources that our communities desperately need will be wasted on unnecessary violence. People in the United States and across the globe are tired of war—from the military families who have seen multiple generations serve in the same conflict, to the Iranian, Iraqi, and Afghan families in the United States who worry for their loved ones back home. We've learned our lessons from Iraq, Afghanistan and Yemen and global endless war. We will not be lied into another war. We will not allow our Iranian-American and Muslim neighbors to be targeted by law enforcement. We will not be divided. When Trump acts with ignorance, fear and ego, we will act with diplomacy and prioritize what is best for humanity. We are the majority. We stand united. And we oppose Trump's war with Iran."

"No more war. No to Trump’s war with Iran. Yes to diplomacy abroad and civil rights at home Show up with signs and chants to raise awareness and make a statement to our members of Congress. Invite a friend! All are welcome."

They have a right to protest. That's Freedom Of Speech. They also have a right to be wrong.

But wait, I thought President Trump was supposed to get the U.S. out of war and not start one. He fired first and then claimed a secret threat. Now he is betraying one of his biggest promises.

Most of these "activists" couldn't even find Iran on a map is their lives depended on it.
More marching around and DEMANDING that somebody do something that THEY want.
Lo-information clueless clowns with no responsibility for much of anything.
Will they be able to get on local TV?
Will there be selfies?
Will any of the publicity-seeking KCMO politicos be there?
Tomorrow's a whole new day and there'll be yet another "reason" to march and protest.
Background noise at best.

CNN has settled with Nick Sandman. Undisclosed- but had to be in the millions!

Urge the KC Star to lay another egg and pre-pay Sandman! In fact- find any articles or editorials they wrote and send to Sandman’s lawyer!

Let’s help them go digital faster so they can compete with other bloggers and lose yet again! Tony’s is more interesting!

What’s this have to do with war? Not much, but a nice distraction! Yes

Trump has always maintained the dumbest thing this country ever did was attack Iraq, second dumbest attacking Afghanistan. He would and is now trying to pull us out of those wars and many other places. You hippy dipped anti war people need to open your eyes to the truth. Democrats and Republicans like war, Trump isn't really one of them. He is one of us. Wake up people.

@9:14 - That's agitprop.

Let the Iranians fight their own wars and everyone else. I thought we were going to focus on America first?

I hope the protesters realize that they are wasting their time. The President wants this war. Most Republicans do and even the establishment Democrats want it. The media wants war with Iran as well. The game is rigged. Trump wasn't smart enough to avoid a war.

JUST THE FACTS MA'AM

Is it a virtue to seek peace whenever possible? Yes

Will protests like this planned one have a meaningful impact on what's going to happen going forward? No

If you read non-mainstream news and attempt to stay educated on worldwide geopolitics, you would have known that one of candidate Trump's primary objectives (were he to be elected in 2016) was to militarily strike Iran. Whether it happens in days, before the November election, or during his 2nd term is up for debate.

Most Americans are voluntarily tuned out of geopolitics, they know more about video games, sports, and celebrities, than what's happening in the world and why.

Of those remaining, a majority are hoodwinked by propaganda media who seek not to inform and educate, but to craft a consensus narrative which the sheeple follow, like Pavlov's dog responding to a bell.

Bottom line: The U.S. is the world's superpower because of the U.S. dollar reserve status and the U.S. military. It's a harsh reality, but unless you're willing to sacrifice your current standard of living, you'll bite your tongue, hold your nose, and avert your gaze, while America punishes anyone who dares to challenge our supremacy.

Let me know when all the protesters have taken vows of poverty and are working for subsistence wages to remedy the myriad of social justice issues worldwide. You can get back to me.

You mean the Iranians have the unmitigated gall, after we go to all the trouble of starting a War with them, to actually fight back?

Bastards!

Real KC said...

^^^^ We'll get back to you as soon as you show us Trump's record of service. When did he ever fight for this country.

If you demand that protesters take a vow of poverty for challenging the system than the war promoters like Trump and his last few supporters must show their credentials of military service.

Of course you can't do that because most of the wars in the past 20 years have been started by chicken hawks. They talk a big, tough game when somebody else's neck is on the line but never faced any real danger themselves.

This is America. If you have a vote, you have a voice!

Protest or support. Don't tell people to be quiet. Our Freedom of speech is one of the very few things that separate us from all of the other dictatorships around the world.

If I wanted another middle east war, I would have voted for Lindsey Graham in 2016.

I thought Trump was going to be different. He was supposed to drain the swamp and end the Deep State. Instead we get Bolton and Pompeo running the show with Graham cheering it on. So now we are spending more money, sending more troops and restarted combat operations in Iraq with Iran directly stepping into the fighting. Trump got played by the Deep State.

BTW, where is that border wall? I'm done with him.

Trump killed a man to increase his chances for re-election.

This is called Abuse of Power.

He lied about the reason & violated the War Powers Act.

This is called Obstruction of Congress.

Without a Declaration of War this murder is a War Crime.

Support the troops by removing the President from office.

Given that during World War II, Fred built barracks and garden apartments for U.S. Navy personnel near major shipyards along the East Coast. If he won a bronze star, it was in a poker game. In 1954 President Dwight D. Eisenhower and other federal leaders began denouncing real-estate profiteers, one of whom was Fred.

In 1927 Fed was arrested as a robed KKK member for refusing to end a march in Queens.

Fred was certainly one to be emulated.
