ACTIVIST CLAY CHASTAIN CALLS OUT ELITIST KANSAS CITY DISCOURSE!!!
Right now Kansas City's most prolific petitioner shares his perspective on the local discourse that is dominated by a small clique of talkers funded by patrons or fading corporate dinosaurs . . . Check Clay speaking out against the process and the skewed view of local politics that it provides:
Clay: Kansas City's Nobles are controlling the local news you need to know.
The "Noblis Oblige" are supposed to act honorably and generously to others. But in Kansas City, are some of the local elite doing so? Are they instead controlling not only our government and media, but also the people's interest for their own advantage? Are your water bills going up?
How much free speech is allowed in KC has become a function of how much one challenges the local establishment. When petitions step too much on the establishment's toes, suppression of the truth (and those bearing the truth) ensues. Like they've done the Star, the Nobles have now infected local public television with their power grab. Clay and other establishment-challenging citizens have been banished. The Nobles (who help fund KCPT 19) thought it "a disaster" when Tony Botello last appeared on a KCPT. The Nobles lean on the media to treat the people like mushrooms - keep them in the dark and feed them manure. Consequently, KCPT is continually loaded up with the usual establishment-filtered MSM type guests like... Dave Helling, Steve Kraske and Colleen Nelson of the Star. No local grassroots activists or bloggers, that could challenge the Nobles' mismanagement and misplanning of our City, are allowed. Diito for "Ruckus", the public show that doesn't want to have a real ruckus.
The Nobles don't want Clay's "Green Transit" petition competing with their novelty streetcar ambitions so City Hall is blocking a vote and and much of the press is ignoring this crime and its violation of a Missouri Supreme Court ruling. Petitions, transparency and open public debate have become the Democratic casualties of Government & Media..... by Nobility.
We may still be essentially free in this country, but that freedom is becoming increasingly undermined by a wealthy ruling class who not only try to control everything, but have also abandoned their obligation to act for the common good of all.
Moderate Republican Candidate for Congress, Clay Chastain.
