TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY COUNCIL DUDE ERIC BUNCH OFFICE SMACKS DOWN POLICE MURAL EFFORT IN FAVOR OF BLACK LIVES MATTER STREET ART!!!



Council dude Bunch is playing both sides of the Kansas City Black Lives Matter debate badly.

Voters who actually pay attention to policy know that 4th District In-District Council dude is backing away from a vote on local control despite his affinity for BLM given his speech to an EPIC crowd of protesters at City Hall. Remember that KC BLM protesters placed local control efforts for KCPD at the top of their list of demands.

However, in fairness and with the caveat that TKC believes that nearly all politically-charged public art is mediocre and contrived . . .

Councilman Bunch and his office are front and center in support of upcoming Black Lives Matter street murals.

Sadly . . .

IN A RECENT EXCHANGE, THE OFFICE OF COUNCIL DUDE BUNCH SMACKED DOWN A SUPPORTER OF MURALS HONORING LAW ENFORCEMENT WITH A SNIPPY RETORT!!!

We recently covered the po-po mural effort as organizers and supporters of police seemed frustrated that council dismissed their pleas. Clearly their concerns are not unwarranted unlike most police searches in this cowtown . . . Budump-bump-bump!!! (I keed, I keed)



Anyhoo, it gets worse . . .

In response from Council Dude Bunch's office INTERCEPTED by our TKC blog community . . . We get an EXCLUSIVE glimpse at the juxtaposition betwixt BLM murals and tribute to the po-po.

Here's the reply . . .

"Our deepest apologies for the delayed response. Thank you for reaching out about your proposal.

"As a City-initiated project, KC Art on the Block is moving forward without the necessity of permits being issued. The City does not have a permit process for non-City initiated painting on public streets by private entities/organizations. The funds for this project are all privately raised, the City is not funding the project and public works staff will not be implementing the murals. Prioritization of the KC Art on the Block project was supported by 11/12 Council members and Mayor Lucas who felt this value statement is a priority and were willing to adopt a resolution initiating it. Three City Council Offices were involved in pre-leadership/planning. The project was fully vetted with hundreds of hours of pre-planning by 20+ supporting private civic organizations, plans submitted with all project volunteers/organizing and communications is being administered privately. Within the City of Kansas City, MO legislative process, same-day adoption for a Resolution requires 9 Council votes.

"Regarding your proposed street mural, we thank you for the suggestion, but this proposal is not a priority for our office at this time.

Sincerely,

Crissy ####
###############

Now, it's not our intention to put Becky Crissy on the spot but that last line really stung . . .

"This proposal is not a priority for our office at this time."

There's a better way to treat constituents and people volunteering their time to try to help police and show support for law enforcement by way of public art.

Unfortunately, this exchange shows us that Council Dude Bunch's office is rather brusque with a great many "back the badge" advocates whilst embracing BLM artsy endeavors but still forgoing any MEANINGFUL policy initiatives on public safety, social justice or any topic that doesn't involve bicycles.

Not only is Eric Bunch an advocate for bicycles; he's an advocate for the streetcar, which is a gentrification tool that continues J.C. Nichols' legacy of segregation.

I actually don't mind Councilman Bunch so much, it's just the condescending attitude that urbanists and leftists have that makes it hard to be patient with his virtue signalling and his hypocrisy.

I also reached out to his office about the murals am received a similar response. "Crissy" assured me that members of the community will lead the mural designs in each location, so if officers and "Back The Blue" advocates want to get involved at the community level, they may be able to have some impact on the design of one or more of th see murals, which could include an image of a blue line or something else.

These murals would be a great opportunity to recognize black police officers who have to put up with hate from angry white women.

Hope someone with the local BLM mob gave Bunch a phone number to call if he ever needs some help with a home invasion or car jacking.
Don't think 911 was likely to do him much good.
Have ANY of these people actually given any thought to what the responsibilities of a municipal elected official are?
In KCMO it appears to be all just show and a hobby.

This without a doubt and proven fact that Eric Bunch stands for communism in our country and is also very ignorant for choosing BLM as his front.
Doesn't anyone remember the liberals saying they were the tolerant ones. So how is putting up one sided murals and art tolerant? Only one side can voice their opinion? The democrats have proven that you either believe their way or they will wreck your city. So when Eric Bunch is finished with his BLM worship he can also put a picture of the convicted terrorist and BLM board member Susan Rosenberg up around the city to show that he and BLM praise terrorism and communism. And they call conservatives dictators.

When elected politicians like Lucas and Bunch disrespect and pull their support for KCPD; it sends a message to the criminals that it is o.k. to rob, rape and murder.

Lucas and Bunch have blood on their hands.

Whoever was the "no" vote on the council should introduce a bill to permit a "Blue Lives Matter" message on one or more streets. When the council ignores it or votes against, sue the city for viewpoint discrimination.

Again, there is no such thing as a "street mural." Murals are on walls. Their so called street mural is nothing more than political speech.

BLM is a radical communist/socialist organization based on their beliefs below:

- Wants to overturn U.S. capitalism

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

- Wants to defund police, ICE and get rid of all jails, detention centers, youth facilities and prisons

- Wants to allow prisoners, illegal immigrants and felons to vote

- Wants to legalize prostitution and the possession and sale of all drugs, no matter the quantity

- Wants to end any arrests of black students

- Wants reparations for past and continuing harms to blacks and a redistribution of all wealth

- 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

- Wants to change public schools into delivery points of multicultural studies and welfare programs

Really sad. I will never vote for him again. Eric- you are not representing your district. While your streets are crumbling and crime is out of control huge sums of money are being diverted to such things as 18th and Vine and the Street Car. Instead of supporting things that address the problems of the City you support divisive street painting. You are in way over your head.

Black Lives Matter members in Chicago held a rally on Monday to support the more than 100 arrested last night following widespread looting and rioting that caused at least $60 million in property damage and saw 13 police officers injured, according to a report.

The rally was organized by Black Lives Matter Chicago and was held at a police station in the South Loop where organizers say individuals are currently being held in custody. At least one organizer called the looting tantamount to "reparations."

“I don’t care if someone decides to loot a Gucci or a Macy’s or a Nike store, because that makes sure that person eats,” said Ariel Atkins, a BLM organizer, according to NBC Chicago. “That makes sure that person has clothes. That is reparations. Anything they wanted to take, they can take it because these businesses have insurance.”

Bandito, he'd probably enjoy being pissed on.

Now I'd walk across the street if I had a bottle of Everclear, in fact, I'd offer him a drink.
No, on second though I'd insist he have a drink, but I might spill some.

It is illegal to paint over any, ANY, traffic control devices like lane markings, turn lane markers, stop lines etc. BLM "Murals (which are not murals) cover traffic safety markings and the city is abdicating their responsibility in stopping these paintings of public property otherwise called vandalism.

I am absolutely ashamed of myself, for falling for this mans back of shit during the election! I voted for him and it was the worst vote I have cast in a long time, I generally do my homework before I vote! Bunch is a egotistical leftist who has HIS best interests at heart! This BLM BS is just to get himself re-elected, he DOES not represent the majority of residents of 4th.

Five-year-old Cannon Hinnant was allegedly executed at point-blank range with a gunshot to the head by 25-year-old felon Darius Nathaniel Sessoms while riding his bike and playing outside his house on Sunday evening in Wilson, North Carolina.

Hinnant's brutal murder was reportedly witnessed by his two young sisters and a neighbor who couldn't believe what she saw.

"I saw him just run right up to him and [he] put the gun right up to his head and shot him," neighbor Doris Labrant told WRAL.

..


Sessoms lives next door to Cannon's father, and a neighbor said that the two men had dinner together Saturday night and that Sessoms was at his neighbor's home earlier Sunday.

Doris Labrant, who witnessed the shooting, said Sessoms ran up to Cannon, put the gun near his head and fired before running back to his own house.

"My first reaction was he's playing with the kids," Labrant said. "For a second, I thought, 'That couldn't happen.' People don't run across the street and kill kids."

A G0_Fund_Me page has been set up for Hinnant’s family. The page reads, “A beautiful 5 year old baby boy riding his bicycle was shot by his neighbor point blank in Wilson, NC. One minute he is enjoying his life, the next it all ends because he rode into his neighbors yard.”

Is there possibility we can petition for a vote to eliminate the divisive street painting. This is a stick in the eye to many folks who are not racially biased but want to be able to drive in their neighborhoods with out being faced with a radical political statement.

Sure the BLM protesters what to see local control of the police as they have seen how easy it is to push the leaders of Kansas City around.

Councilman Bunch just isn't that smart. He only won his seat by a couple of votes and has been campaigning for his reelection ever since. He will pander to anyone, trying to walk both sides of the street, which just make him look gutless.
We will see more of the same throughout his term.

Wow. What a blatant double standard. BLM, according to Don LeMon (or whatever), is about the police unfairly persecuting black people. That simply isn't true.

Bunch should stick to bycicles even though he has screwed that up as well. He either seems confused, clueless or a political suck up. Probably all three. He should just keep his mouth shut and not have his assistant talk for him.

Fuck you. I hardly ever see black police men. I was pulled over once by one, he asked me if i was trying to 'elude him" when i saw him 200 yards behind me w/out lights/sirens. I said "yes i was." I do not remember what i was doing or how he knew my turns were eluding him, probably speeding, but he let me go. Very nice man.

And tomorrow, Blowhard Joe Biden plays the Token card. Has to be a Woman, preferably African American. Because in 2020, you don't care to pick on experience or quality, just select on race and gender. It's no wonder BLM was created by 2 bisexual Women of COLOR. Paint that Mural and call it the greatest production a special interest person has ever performed. Tokenism - exploiting people based on their race or gender farthest removed from Adam and Eve. LOL

Chicago's Michigan Avenue stores were looted last night. Store windows broken out, looting at GUCCI, Dior and other upscale stores. Over a thousand looters cleaned out many stores.

Would not want to own a business in downtown KC or the Plaza as it will probably happen again here.

Chicago Cops stood and watched as they are not allowed to arrest protesters or prevent looting.

^^ 13 officers were hurt, are gucci bags worth that? Are the stores going to compensate the police? Cucci received a NY $193,205 subsidy - NYC: Industrial Commercial Incentive Program (ICIP)/Industrial and Commercial Abatement Program (ICAP)
Elite fashion is marked up far more than they are worth so they do not seeing peasants wearing the same outfit.

Vote for Biden/Harris if you want:

- More lawlessness/violence everywhere

- Weaker military and police that our enemies will take advantage of

- Weaker economy with high unemployment post-COVID

- More exhibitions on public property promoting fringe groups such as BLM
