KANSAS CITY PROTESTS BACKFIRE?!?!



There's a lot to cover this week but first let's look at the big picture . . .

Remember not so long ago a great deal of advocacy and outcry over systemic racism culminated in voter backlash that endorsed The Paseo over MLK Blvd. Heck, even Mayor Quinton Lucas was forced to double back and rethink his sponsorship of the FAILED rename ordinance.

Similarly . . .

- Despite brash statements in support of Black Lives Matter, council dude Eric Bunch now backs away from his protest support and isn't willing to stick his neck out for KCPD local control.

- The Mayor was an outspoken advocate for the BLM movement but community outcry asking him to back up his rhetoric has kept him mostly silent on social justice issues for almost a week.

- And again, it doesn't look like the KCPD Chief is going to resign any time soon given that he has the votes from the commish to keep his job.

And so, given all of these facts along with continued protest that doesn't seem very interested in a local legislative agenda  . . .

HAVE CONSTANT KANSAS CITY DEMONSTRATIONS BACKFIRED?!?

Even worse, allegations of violence at many protests have sparked a few pro-police demonstrations across the metro and push back against many of the progressive goals for campaign 2020 election season.

And so we ask readers if the trending demonstrations have now lost focus and no longer have achievable political goals at the local level. 

You decide . . .

Don't worry. There will be more protests. In Portland they're still going strong. The protests aren't anywhere close to finished and the activists have warned us that if they don't get what they want, they will shut down local government.

So far, I haven't heard any elected official in KC say that they have any plans to stop them.

There is only one reason (that makes sense) to end the city wide local control vote is that BLM and protestors don’t think it will pass in November. The police union has a lot of money and influence, especially up north, far south and along Ward Parkway. No way does the protests and rioting help the pro local control vote.

Maybe we should have the vote and end this discussion once and for all.

You would think that by now all the low-information people who actually think that marching around with a sign and yelling and shouting is going to "change" society would have protested by now, but apparently not.
But at least the "leaders" are running out of new places to riot and they've discovered that the suburbs aren't too receptive to this kind of inconsiderate and pointless silliness, especially in residential areas.
So keep on marching.
Get those participation trophies, selfies, and maybe even an interview with one of the local TV personalities and convince yourself that you're changing the world.
A handful of folks are making big bucks with the BLM scam and you 'aint one of them.

Lots of squealing from the "Old Guard" here, echoing the far-Right's nostalgia for an America that never was.

Prayer in Schools - when? Sure, lots of silent prayers just before tests, but any sort of classroom praying on a regular basis, not in the 30s, 40s, 50s 60s or any time later. At lest not anyplace other than maybe the far backwoods in the Deep South and Texas.

American Economic Growth? The American Standard Of Living peaked in 1973, and has declined steadily since then, by any measurement you examine.

American Military strength? We are now so weak that Saudi Arabia was not afraid to kill more than 3,000 American citizens in our own Country, and this latest "test" has shown the World we have neither the Leadership capabilities or the Health Care System to d3fend against a biological attack.

No, the Conservatives don't really want a "return to America", they learned long ago that the only way they can achieve power is through a "divide and conquer" policy of fomenting fear and separations in the American People.

Demonstrations have run their course with public support. The greatest majority of people are tired of them and they have reached a point that the constant noise over whelms the message. They lose more support at every demonstration than they gain, so a net loss daily of general support. Also I don't know anyone that is not black that just grinds their teeth when they hear Black Lives Matter so their blackmail of businesses and corporations will soon dry up. The demonstration in OP is a prime example. BTW they never did have my support at all. Sorry George was killed in Minneapolis, it was wrong, but this reaction is too much over the top. Lead by black women that can never contain their yelling. BLM, RIP.

- Wants to end any arrests of black students

- Wants reparations for past and continuing harms to blacks

- Wants to destroy the traditional nuclear family structure of having a mother and father

- Wants all blacks to receive a guaranteed minimum income

- Wants all blacks to receive free healthcare, schooling, food, real estate, gender reassignment surgery and abortions

Most of Howard Zinn’s book is factually incorrect propaganda. Grow up and get a life!

Keep protesting. It's not getting you somewhere it's just not getting you where you want. People are tired of it. Business owners are pissed. It's not just here. Spoke to a friend that lives just outside of the Minneapolis shithole last night. Same situation there only much worse. Businesses are leaving. People are moving out. This isn't isolated to Kansas City and Minneapolis.

All the protests are doing is destroying the tax base that would fund the "socialist justice" that the protesters want. Public property will have to be restored. Private property may or may not be rebuilt. Many are opting to relocate.

There is a very simple axiom that blm does not and never will understand... when one discovers that they are in a hole the first required action is to STOP DIGGING. It's pretty safe to tell the blm screwballs this because they are hell bent on a mission to cut their nose off to spite their faces. They aren't going to listen. They don't want to. Like it or not blm, you have become background noise. Everything is racist. Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. You sound like Charlie Brown's teacher. All you are doing is preaching to the choir and making any actual legitimate claims background noise too.

Do a little research and see what the 1968 race riots achieved electorally which is really what this is all about. Get rid of the big bad orange man. Wrong approach but whatever! Can't talk horse sense to jackasses. The Rodney King riots gained exactly what? For that matter how about the riots when the Chicago Bulls won the championships? Now there's a reason to riot by God! The 2018 Philly Super Bowl riot? The list goes on and on.

You don't want change, you want to tear stuff up and get free merch. Please keep "mostly peaceful protesting" but shut the hell up when conditions in Kansas City and elsewhere get worse. Businesses won't move into that a crime-ridden climate where they'll get ripped off or worse. It's why the city of Kansas City owns that joke of a grocery store at 31st and Prospect that can't get out of the red.

I would say that the demonstrations without credibility have backfired. The Save the Paseo victory had merit in that Black preachers don’t dictate our social or political discourse. They should keep quiet. BLM and these other protests have been riding on mostly emotion and not at all on legal merit or credibility. Mayor Lucus forgets he’s the hired help - passed off as Mayor and White people elected him not Black people. So, he’s in a peculiar situation where he has to do what his Masters tell him... if that is STFU, then he will STFU. That simple.

How about Nancy Pelosi throwing money into the stimulus package for the Kennedy Center, how many unemployed has that helped? None. How about the fact that the top democrats have been in government over 223 years combined and had control of both houses of congress most of the time thus control of spending? What have they done for you...again nothing. Stick your liberal BS up your tight ass you idiot, open your eyes to the nonsense of Schiff and Nadler and all the dems in congress that have not accomplished even one useful thing in 3.5 years because they don't know how to govern only obstruct progress. But you don't know any other way to vote. How much did the Obama administration deficit spend? Answer: More than all other previous presidents combined! (FACT).

Boomer. Straight from Quantico to "Indian Country". "Domino Theory" sounded valid during the "Red Scare". Mistake. We shouldn't have been there. But I know very, very few vets who will vote dem.

Indeed, Ike was correct in warning about "The Military Industrial Complex". It's certainly here and continues lining lobbyists and Congressional pockets on both sides of the aisle. (Note that the defense industry does employ many thousands of people.)

However, in a world that becomes more dangerous every day, anyone believing the military would be maintained, let alone enhanced by the likes of Schumer, Pelousy, Nattler, Schitz, AOC and Omar, needs a lobotomy. Naive lefties advocating redirecting military dollars to social programs endanger the very survival of America, particularly in the face of China's military ascendancy.

Low informed comments to the contrary, Trump has been trying to pull troops out of the Middle East "Forever War", only to be blocked by his haters at every turn.

BLM would be much more effective if they concentrated on a couple of items, such as local control of the police and police reform in minority areas. Right now, even people who are sympathetic to them don't know what they want except "no racism" and "power to the people". What do those bumper sticker slogans mean? People who accomplish things focus on them like a laser beam and get them done, then go on to the next thing. Because this is a low information, barely involved population of political "activists", they are remarkably unimpressive to those in power. The powerful will listen to them, tell them how wonderful they are, and then go on with business as usual. I expect nothing else. MLK was effective when he focused on two things: integrating public facilities and voting. When he got off track, his credibility and effectiveness suffered.

Nobody is ever prepared for a biological attack and you didn't go to school in the 30's or 40's. Maybe in 49 and that was it. I went to Shawnee Mission grade schools in the late 50's early 60's and we did have some prayer, studied and did things related to religion. We said the pledge of allegiance every day before class started. It's always been the democrats that have slashed military budgets and your pal President Johnson killed more American people in an armed conflict than any other in past 100 years and your claim to being 75 is a bunch of horseshit. Oh and for you idiots Trump didn't dodge the draft as he was in school same as tens of thousands of others who also got college deferments and then the draft board themselves declared him unfit. Hell two members of my family got their college education by using deferments before both signed up.

I’ve watched Carter, Clinton, and Obama damage this country over and over with their inept leadership, weak national security policies, and economic policies designed to tax the middle class through income taxes which are designed to keep the poor and middle class from ever achieving true wealth, all while blowing the top off of the national debt with each New Democratic administration.

The Republicans are far from perfect, but again and again they've managed to Reduce income taxes on the poor and middle classes allowing them to become more self sufficient and less dependent on big government Welfare state all to restore some level of betterment in the lives of the American People.

Your name calling is typical of the Democrats, you have nothing to offer so you try to demonize anyone who doesn't buy into your line of thinking, For years Democrats have applied labels to anyone who presents a different opinion or perspective labeling them racists, homophobic, misogynistic, xenophobic, etc, etc, etc. The list could go on and on. But, nice attempt on your part to revise history again in the true Howard Zinn fashion.

If we went on a gold standard (or partial gold standard) it would stabilize the economy. The US dollar will fall in value as so many are printed. Why worry about counterfeit dollars devaluing our system when we print trillions of new dollars with no backing? They are basically fake. Flooding a country with counterfeit dollars was a WWII trick that worked well to destablize a country. Then inflation will come. Real increases in personal income has not happened since the 1970's when we went off gold. Sure your wages go up, but inflation is higher. So you lose purchasing power. I am buying gold and silver (silver is up 50% in last 6 months).

Anonymous said...

Well, hoarding gold also LOST people a lot on money in the 1930s when the Federal Government put a price limit of $35 an ounce on that Metal and imposed ownership limits.

Shouldn't be too hard to impose the same sort of limit on both metals if necessary.

Anonymous said...

The govt bought it at $35 and sold it at almost twice that to put money into the government. They made a huge profit. Rosevelt was the President doing it. But you could have kept your gold, there is no record of police searching houses - then sold it years later. Really think the "police" are going to search your house and take away gold, silver or guns? Really? especially guns owned by crazys?
