KANSAS CITY ACTIVISTS CELEBRATE PROTEST OVER 4TH OF JULY PARTIES!!!
A postscript for the holiday weekend promoted by the "alternative" Kansas City magazine that has been dedicated to mostly publishing progressive talking points.
Here's the word . . .
The Pitch: July 4th police protest echoes the spirit of resistance which founded America
"On this 4th of July, several hundred Kansas City residents rallied and peacefully marched the streets to protest police brutality and racial injustice. It was not the picnics, marching bands, and fireworks of the past. There was no laughter and no sense of nostalgia for the past. There was anger and determination for change. But in many ways, it seemed more in keeping with the spirit of the “rabble-rousers” who first signed the Declaration of Independence than were the holiday cookouts of our youth.
"It was a truly American 4th of July."
A rebuttal on the designation of "peaceful" protest:
"According to Kansas City police, protesters burned several flags and a small wagon with hay bales in front of Kelly’s Westport Inn. The doors to the bar were smashed and a citizen’s vehicle was also damaged."
