MANY KANSAS CITY CONSERVATIVES DEFEND 'STOP SNITCHING' BACKLASH AGAINST CORONAVIRUS LOCK DOWN!!!
Juxtaposition for tonight given that more than a few TKC Readers asked us us to try to make a local connection regarding a contentious national debate . . .
OUR CONSERVATIVE READERS DECRY RECENT CALLS TO INFORM ON STAY AT HOME VIOLATIONS BUT IS THAT JUST A RIGHT WING 'STOP SNITCHING' PLOY?!?
Long, long ago an exceptional bit of journalism perfectly documented a deadly urban trend and called out community silence that still persists . . . Here's the money line:
"One reality strangles efforts to actually stop the violence: The citizens who are most at risk are also the least willing to cooperate with police."
SIMILARLY, many years later Kansas City and the nation now confront another potentially deadly threat and this time around the demand for silence comes from our conservative pals.
Daily Wire: Bill De Blasio’s Social Distancing Tip Line ‘Flooded’ With Obscene Photos, Nasty Memes
New York Post: De Blasio’s social distancing tip line flooded with penis photos, Hitler memes
PJ Media: Response to Mayor De Blasio's Snitch Tipline Is Disgusting. It Should Also Restore Your Faith In America.
Of course the effort backfired and was briefly shut down.
Here in Kansas City locals can call the po-po or the 311 line to inform on their neighbors but the resistance to this effort is palpable across the nation.
And so we ask . . .
IS CONSERVATIVE BACKLASH AGAINST CORONAVIRUS STAY AT HOME ORDERS THE NEW 'STOP SNITCHING' MOMENT?!?
With a reported 40K Americans dead from coronavirus, many contend this is debate has moved out of the frivolous realm of "culture war" and now becomes a question of life or death.
You decide . . .
