TKC HEALTHY SKEPTICISM!!! UPCOMING 'LIBERATE' KANSAS CITY CORONAVIRUS PROTEST: RECKONING OR ANTICLIMAX?!?
Prez Trump is talking tough but we fancy ourselves a critical thinking blog community of scumbags and share some doubts about anybody fighting for the honor of a TV game show host.
Here's the premise:
NBC News: In Trump's 'LIBERATE' tweets, extremists see a call to arms
"Trump's tweets pushed many online extremist communities to speculate whether the president was advocating for armed conflict, an event they’ve termed “the boogaloo."
To wit . . .
WHILST THE "KANSAS CITY BOOGALOO" SOUNDS COOL IT'S ALSO A LOT EASIER TO FLEX VIA SOCIAL MEDIA THAN IN REAL LIFE WHERE THESE KINDS OF PROTESTS ALMOST ALWAYS DISAPPOINT!!!
Even worse, keyboard warriors love fighting and worsening American division in the abstract but aren't good for much beyond bullying housewives.
Notice that sources for local reports refuse to share many deets and don't have the courage to use their own names or do anything but exchange ghost stories with newsies . . .
KCTV5: Protest against stay at home order possible in KC
Check the sketchy story highlights in what could be a very elaborate ruse for authorities to gather & coordinate surveillance against haters in one convenient location:
"There have been rumors going around that there will be a protest against the stay at home order on Monday at noon in downtown Kansas City.
"The event doesn’t have an exact location, however.
"On Friday, KCTV5’s Greg Payne spoke with one gentleman who didn’t feel comfortable speaking on camera about the event, but said he is going and that he is aware of many people going . . ."
Update with more deets:
Fox4: Protests reportedly planned in KC against Kansas, Missouri stay-at-home orders
They’ve planned protests throughout both states next week. Locally, there’s a call to flood the now empty streets of downtown Kansas City on Monday and another protest planned at J.C. Nichols Fountain.
But metro health officials say large crowds are the last thing the community needs right now.
“If you take a virus that’s highly contagious and respirable and you want to open up society, is there a worse way to make your point than to make everybody sick?” said Dr. Steve Stites with KU Health System.
Accordingly . . .
SHARING GERMS WITH FRUITCAKES IN DOWNTOWN KANSAS CITY MIGHT DISAPPOINT PROTESTERS!!!
We're eager to hear arguments both for and against the effort. We'll wait and see if this is anything but another cringe-worthy political flex amid the infinite loop discourse of the absurd . . . From a safe distance, of course.
You decide . . .
