TKC TOLD YOU SO!!! BLACK LIVES MATTER SHUTS DOWN COUNTRY CLUB PLAZA SATURDAY AS MORE MERCHANTS DECIDE TO ABANDON LOCATION ALTOGETHER!!!



Violent social unrest seems to the the final nail in the coffin for one of the most iconic entertainment districts in Kansas City.

Special thanks to KICK-ASS TKC readers who have been sending photos of the protest and sent these links throughout the day . . . Here are the basics for Saturday night party plans:

KCTV5: The Plaza says they will close at 4 p.m. Saturday in response to scheduled protest

KMBC: A few businesses were damaged in Friday's protest over George Floyd's death.

Fox4: The shopping district will reopen on Monday at 11 a.m.

Denizens of our blog community called this one last night.

However, our research and TKC readers went beyond the headlines and got a bit of EXCLUSIVE SCOOP from a frustrated merchant.

Here's the word . . .

"Coronavirus and this has FINISHED the Plaza as far as I'm concerned. A few leases are coming up for renewal in August and you're going to see a major exodus. There's a very big retailer that's going to make the announcement that they're going to abandon their project. It will cost them millions to get out of the contract but it's not worth it. The Plaza is dead and City Hall helped to kill it. What I saw was the mayor encouraging this kind of behavior and absolutely no consequences for destruction of property. That's not a good environment for luxury brands . . . You can't have your customers in fear for their life when they're spending a lot of money. We've already seen have a dozen closures on the Plaza since the beginning of the year. That's just the beginning . . . "

To wit and just to make the point clear . . .

CORONAVIRUS AND VIOLENT CIVIL UNREST ARE KILLING BIZ ON THE KANSAS CITY COUNTRY CLUB PLAZA!!!

Whilst it's easy to cheer and clown luxury brands going the way of the Dodo the impact extends to workers in hotels, restaurants, real estate and so many other industries that are now starting to view this location as far too volatile for for their business.

Tesla is taking off. They don't need the aggravation.

Plaza is toast.

Thanks Q!

Retail was garbage anyway but this just seals the deal. Most of the local places have already moved out to the suburbs. Shame. This was a great place in its day. That day is gone.

More opportunity as far as I'm concerned. Let the cowards go some other place and sell out of a strip mall parking lot. The people who stay are the REAL Kansas City.

You can either buy on Amazon or live in a real city. I choose the real life over the internet.

I'm waiting for MoRage to post another stupid comment so Super Dave can rip his ass again. Diversity killed the Plaza. Diversity is killing and destroying our country. Time for the Free Lunch Counter to be closed for good.

In the Marine Corps at Camp Pendleton, there is a training facility called combat town. It’s a small set up to replicate House to house combat
Kansas City should build one so whenever there’s a protest, they can just go there and burn it down all they want and leave normal people alone

Stop the Toy Train waste. The Plaza was against it and now they a voting with their feet and leaving.

I have a co-worker from California who bought a place on the Plaza 4 years ago when he moved here, thought it'd be great. Realized too late that Plaza is basically a dud and now can't sell his overpriced condo; he's buying a house in the burbs once it sells.

Cops just swarmed the Plaza. Party over kids.

Thank our long dearly departed great grandfathers who were human traffic dealers and chased down people all over africa to bring here so stupid lazy people named Wendell from the south didnt have to pick their own cotton. You know those slave trader estates were passed down and there are some very wealthy people today living off that 2oo+year compounded interest. Other counties didnt import slaves 200 years ago - and they have MUCH fewer problems than the USA. So blame families like "The Gladman Family" who made big buck right before the civil war bringing in any person who could pick cotton and make them rich. They still got their money, but live nowhere even close to an area with black housing. May those ancestors rot in hell.

Anonymous said...

Yeah Jonathan Gladman's great grandkids lived in Leawood south, had a great wealthy life of ease off the slaves he sold in Kansas and Missouri before the civil war. Thats where their $$$ all came from. A huge amount. Millions. The dough is still around, but the slaves aren't.

You forgot the Muslim religion! Who do you think rounded up the other Africans. Damn those Christ believing Savages if they had just believed in Allah we never would have had a slave trade.

Remi at 343, your post makes me wonder about the “real” KC . Don’t misunderstand, I love the city and, especially, the Plaza. But the place, despite beautiful architecture, doesn’t offer much anymore. Nearly all of the mid- to high-end retailers have left, even though STL supports a Saks, Neiman’s, etc. Don’t blame former Plaza shoppers because Forever 21 and the Nike store don’t do it for them.

If living in a real city means being locked down because of a virus and living in fear of rioters then I, and almost everyone else, would not choose to live in a real city.

3:41 that’s because sLIE let the murderous thieving blacks run all the good businesses off, sLIE despised the plaza because it took away from his downtown and now mayor boy blunder is following suit. We’re one step away from the cleaves dream of running whitey out of town so this could be an all negro town.

Mayor boy blunder was just on tv telling the media about how hard he had growing up as a black man...... that’s rich coming from somebody who’s whole life was bought and paid for by generous white people.

There are lots of ways to support “my people”. I do it by helping kids learn to read, mentoring & helping young people get jobs. You are free to March & I don’t criticize you for that as long as it’s peaceful. I prefer to to make sure our kids get the education they deserve.

In Sweden they eliminated negroes and everything is fine.

This is not a protest this is a riot and it's ashamed that these people aren't happy that President Trump has ordered an immediate investigation into this mans death.
Even more sad Mayor Lucas is doing nothing about it. This should never happened. Innocent people are hurt by this riot and that's not O.K.

Anonymous said...

Can we just start shooting negroes at will and get this shit over with?

Anonymous said...

If he really believed in his people why didn't he marry one of his people? Why did his son's not marry one of their people? Mayor Mary Lucas indicated he's part of the black community. That's telling the white people he has no interest in you cuz he doesn't see you as part of his communicate. Words mean things and he just shot himself in the foot

My grandfather had a thriving soap and lampshade business in the 1940's. When the bottom dropped pot of the market in 1945, he was willing to relocate his business to Argentina and landed on his feet just fine.

Wow. Tonight is MAGAT night at the White House! Everyone enjoys complimentary hydro-imbecillin shots and Lysol vaping. Attendees will also watch a screening of the newly release Republican National Committee movie, 'Windmills Cause Cancer.' Afterward, enjoy an old fashion creepy tickle-fest while building blanket forts in the West Wing.

Hurry, Kansas City MAGATS. Catch that flight and fly away to FREEDUMB!

I love how conservatives are now embracing and cheering Trump's threats of using the military to take over, shoot looters, and martial law.

What a precedent to set for all future administrations to use.

Next time protesters show up at a state capital with their long guns, things will end differently.

Yes but blaming it on a few broken windows is purified bullshit. It's a retail apocalypse but some racist merchant thinks that when cops play God with Black Lives everyone should just bend over and take it so his few remaining rich customers won't ever be inconvenienced.

From Candace Owens (should be president):

How to tell you’re in an election year via Facebook:

1. Everyone on your Facebook feed has apparently received their PHD in political science, overnight.

2. Posts have transformed from majority engagement announcements, wedding photos, and baby pictures—to black vs. white racial commentary.

2A. You’re wondering if Asian and bi-racial people still exist in this country, but you’re scared to ask.

3. Almost every person begins their political post with “I don’t normally talk about politics or “Usually I refrain from posting about politics” in a miraculous way to virtue-signal, right before they virtue signal.

4. And you vaguely remember them always posting about politics...

5. Usually their post ends with a highly mature, rational conclusion like “you can unfriend me if you disagree”. Followed by a series of thunderous emoji applause, 👏👏👏“preachhhh” or “amen” 🙌🙌🙌 in the comments section from other mature and rational human beings who know it’s best to isolate yourself completely from the risk of being exposed to different opinions.

6. White liberals jump at the opportunity to show their Facebook friends how not-racist they are, by authoring posts with the most fury and passion.

7. These posts typically include some tail-in-between-the-legs, self-deprecating call to action like “WE NEED TO JUST SHUT UP AND LISTEN” or a more sweeping, foregone conclusion like “WE WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND OUR OWN PRIVILEGE”

8. If a black person comments to said white person that they disagree— said white person will immediately tell that black person to shut up because #YOUAINTBLACK

9. White moderates or conservatives that disagree with the 1865 racial narrative must shut up and say nothing or be immediately accused of being racist themselves. In fact, even “liking” a post in support of a slightly different perspective can equate to a public declaration of their allegiance to the Ku Klux Klan. JUST DON’T DO IT, WHITE PEOPLE.

10. 99% of the people making these racially-charged posts are the low-achievers you went to high school with, maybe played a sport with, and definitely remember well-enough to know that they didn’t grow up in any kind of racially conflicted environment.

11. But hey! It’s an election cycle. Everyone wants to be a hero on social media, and no one ever earned the glory of a social media like by being rational. Plus, it’ll all be over after November when we can go back to babies and engagements.

Happy election year, people! (Oh, and if you disagree with any of this, you can hit the unfriend button!) 😂😂😂

Yes, Nordstrom's has seen the handwriting (or blood and graffiti) on the Plaza wall.

Cut your losses now, rather than putting more money into finishing the project only to close it in a year or two.

Entire Plaza neighborhood at risk if City Hall and KCPD can't coordinate to strictly enforce the law and ensure safety of residents/patrons.

Anonymous said...

I'm confused. Trump called for using the military to put down domestic protests.

So everyone here is now embracing that? WTF???

Anonymous said...

I was wondering why no one is mentioning (right in the middle of a pandemic) that Mayor Is encouraging " folks" to come down and be part of protest. How can you do that without masks and social distancing. Yet all the Lake of the Ozarks pool partiers were chastised. Sounds like they need more coronavirus cases in KC. Crazy rationale.
