TKC MUST SEE!!! REPUBLICAN-LED RECALL EFFORT AGAINST KANSAS CITY MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS DENIES 182,622 CORONAVIRUS DEATH COUNT!!!
Critics of Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas continue to garner momentum and petition signatures for his recall. They're likely to exceed the low threshold mandated by the charter and force a public vote on the future of city hall. However, the conversation among the group has grown increasingly reliant on right-wing talking points.
To wit . . .
THE LEAD ORGANIZER FOR THE RECALL KANSAS CITY MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS GROUP DENIES CORONAVIRUS DEATHS IN HIS LATEST REPORT THAT WHICH MISLEADS ON RECENT CDC FINDINGS!!!
Now . . .
To be fair there's actually a much better post on this page that offers a comprehensive "list of wrongs" assigned to Mayor Lucas which might influence voters.
But this is TKC and our mission is to focus and celebrate the silly as we clown a political neophyte playing doctor . . .
Recall organizer Bradley Sarver wrote:
The CDC has admitted that less than 10,000 deaths have been actually caused by "COVID-19"
END MASK MANDATES NOW
END SOCIAL DISTANCING NOW
OPEN THE SCHOOLS NOW
BRING BACK YOUTH SPORTS NOW
OPEN ALL BUSINESSES NOW
To wit . . .
THE REAL ESTATE AGENT OFFERING BAD MEDICAL ADVICE IS ACTUALLY MORE EXTREME THAN THE PREZ TRUMP ADMINISTRATION IN HIS NEARLY COMPLETE DENIAL OF THE PANDEMIC!!!
Still, there's no argument that his statements have found a great deal of support from the recall group that's almost completely dominated by Northland MAGA chatter.
And so, in the interest of public health we share mainstream media news about rampant coronavirus misapprehension on social media.
