KANSAS CITY TENANTS DEMAND FREE RENT DURING CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC!!!



In the midst of this pandemic health crisis, the tragic business of evictions are a growing concern for activists.

To wit . . .

CHECK THIS RENTER'S RIGHTS GROUP ADVOCATING THAT CITY HALL CANCEL RENT BECAUSE OF CORONAVIRUS!!!

Tragically, there's not even acknowledgment that this would push many small time property owners and "home providers" to the point of starvation.

Still, in fairness, here's a look at their argument from a recent social media post.

KC Tenants Propose Eviction Moratorium

We are calling for an immediate moratorium on rent increases, evictions/foreclosures, and utility shut-offs. We are also calling for deeply, rapidly expanded services for our community members experiencing homelessness.

Kansas City is in the middle of a public health crisis. This crisis affects and will affect our poor and working class community members the most, especially those experiencing homelessness. Kansas Citians who are housing-insecure or currently homeless at a higher risk of being exposed to the virus, becoming ill, and suffering catastrophic health outcomes. Low-income tenants are also at risk if they get ill and/or cannot work (because they're monitoring symptoms, at risk, watching kids, etc.) and therefore can't make their rent.

This crisis requires an immediate moratorium (halt) on rent increases and evictions/foreclosures, and utility shut offs. We must also strategically and deeply expand services for people experiencing homelessness.

Evictions and homelessness significantly worsen the threat posed by COVID-19. In order to halt widespread displacement from our homes and our jobs or businesses which would only worsen the current situation, we are calling on every level of government: state, county, and municipal to take the necessary steps, immediately.

We will have tools to share from model policy around the country by end of day tomorrow (Friday March 13), and our leaders are available to review any policies/strategies being considered by elected officials.

Fuck the Chinese Communist liars.

If there was any real justice in the world, there would be 13,743 miles worth of crime scene tape strung around the ongoing criminal enterprise known as Communist China. Forensics experts would be busy gathering information of the malfeasance, obstruction and cover up of the ongoing World Wide tsunami of Involuntary Manslaughter that began in Wuhan and is at this very minute, killing citizens throughout most every nation on earth.

The repeating palimpsest for this latest atrocity is only 6 months old. We are no better than pigs to the Chinese, who represent an economic potential that is apparently, as far as our politicians, captains of industry and media believe, is worth far more than your dead grandparents. The African swine flu, which killed off 25% of the world's pigs, spun wildly out of control when the Communist government at first ignored, then suppressed information which would have allowed the containment of the plague. Sound familiar?

Repeated verification equals, at some point, to even the most obtuse, "porcine" observers, verifiable belief. China is a giant, reeking, mephitic, diseased and necrotic Petri dish, where unimaginable horrors are, even now, growing, nascent and ready to strike once again into the heart of the Occident. We didn't change the Chinese with Capitalism and they didn't change us with Communism, they just bought us out. Now, literally hooked on Chinese drugs, Oxycontin, cheap labor and unfulfilled promises of future wealth, we will, once again, look the other way as our neighbors and families sicken and die in order to maintain the "status quo" that allows politicians to drop by and pick up a quick billion for a few winks and nods.

Where is the contagion of blame to match the literal contagion? The 4th estate, in their Pavlovian, dog-like IQ response, predictably rolls out the usual Trump Tacitus Trap and assigns responsibility to the president for the economic tectonic shifts over the last 30 years which were authored by the very Globalists he seeks to thwart. The Deep State Politicians who make bank on that same status quo are rubbing their hands together gleefully and hoping against hope for a deep recession. The febrile minds running Big Tech are as sickened and fevered as your gravely ill relatives and seek to bend us all to the will of the Progressive Narrative and "Never Let A Crisis Go To Waste". Their efforts to stifle and eliminate information that reveals the honest efforts of the administration to fight the outbreak, while emphasizing and highlighting every real and perceived failure are counterproductive and as misleading as the propaganda you would expect in China.

Trump did not commit these millions of crimes. China committed these crimes and China should be in the dock and if not remanded into custody, then at least reprimanded, fined and punished for their crimes

TOO LONG, DIDN'T READ. LOSER.

Chuck, really unfair that you posted such a long diatribe on this post. If people wanted to read all that from you, they would read your blog instead.

You say you're a conservative but you are acting like a welfare mooch in putting such a long post on this one that has nothing to do with the subject.

Just the latest example of an issue that begins with a kernel of a good idea and ends up getting dragged to the extreme by clueless uniformed "activists" whose list of "demands" knows no end.
Use government at every level to force other people to do their bidding.
Smiley selfies Lucas will constantly regret ever making believe these folks should be paid any attention to.

Actually, Chuck makes some very good points and his comments are related to coronavirus.

The blame for this is being shifted away from China. Whether it's landlords or Trump, the Democratic Party machine wants us to hold everyone else responsible but those who collaborate with the regime right here in the United States.

Bravo Chuck! It's about time somebody said it.

Quinton said they were getting free stuff but as usual, he lied, even though everything was given to him through affirmative action and welfare.

^^IT is Trump's fault. The American response to this crisis has been an absolute embarrassment. From denying it as a hoax, to purposely slowing the testing to improve his reelection chances, to the failure to put anything resembling a coherent plan in place. We are behind the rest of the world and that should never happen in America. Trump's failure here has for all intents and purposes ended his presidency.

Anonymous said...

This failure started about 10-12 years ago. Don’t think Trump was in DC at that time. Genius you’re not.

chuck said...

You can click your Ruby Slippers together all you want and pretend it is Trump's fault, just like you can pretend if you're Progressive and have a dick that you are a girl, but it won't change a fuckin thing.

The Chinese Communists released this pestilence on the world and it is killing people every minute of every day. P.E.R.I.O.D.

Most of us have had parents that suffered through the depression and if there’s one thing they taught us it’s how to survive, what will you do when your welfare stops coming? The rest of us are prepared for any catastrophe and by the tone of your constant barrage of stupidity it sounds like you’ll be the first to snap and jump off of a government building.

And yet let's hope you're right, but in a week the market's lost most of the Trump boom while Barry's gains are still there. Weird.

Liberals need not worry . . . I'm sure Prince Harry and Greta Thumbscrew will reveal the cause of the virus and provide a solution any second now.



Anonymous said...

@9:13-WRONG. You obviously don't have any money in the market, and never have. Right now, Trump's gain in the market since he took over, in January of 2017, is only 7%! That would be one of the lowest returns ever for a President. You can look this stuff up you know instead of blindly lying about it. Obama's return was much, much, better! Sorry your narrative doesn't play here. Trump has done nothing, and I mean nothing for the country. He exploded the debt, extended the forever wars, and destroyed the economy with his bumbling response to this crisis. Sorry, not sorry.

I lost big time money during the disastrous terms of bama and obiden because of their stupid and childish ideas. Let’s wipe out the middle class to give everything to the do nothing Millie’s of today, it took a brave President like Trump to rescue my retirement investments and until it gets as bad as it was during the trauma bama years I’m not worried.

Get. A. Grip. Millie.

Unless of course your plan was to return to those glory days of no middle class, just the filthy rich and... poor people that get everything from the gubmint. Genius!

10:14 where do you think that welfare money you get comes from dummy? It’s taxes stupid. When Barry said he would help the poor what he really meant was that he would tax the middle class to the edge of extinction to give worthless cocksuckers like you free everything, aren’t you smart enough to know where the money comes from dipshit?

10:15 that’s because Chuck works his ass off for lazy no good fuckers like you, and like him, the rest of us hard working taxpayers would appreciate something free once in awhile.

This latest BS is just a link in a chain of pathetic attempts to get something for nothing. My mother-in-law rents an apartment in Leawood. Funny, I never see any “activists” there demanding things.

Very scary. Especially when you've been in catch-up financial mode for a year. No work=no bills get paid including rent, car insurance, car payments, utilities - which equals no food or gas money.
