YOUR REALLY EFFECTIVE AT LOSING ELECTIONS AND CITIES

Too those still wailing about Taylor, Floyd, Brown, and Martin, let this sink in if it can:

Playwright David Mamet had a famous saying, essentially: …‘in order for democrats, liberals, progressives et al to continue their illogical belief systems they have to pretend not to know a lot of things’… By pretending ‘not to know’ there is no guilt, no actual connection to conscience. Denial of truth allows easier trespass.

More Koolaid please!
These delusional low-information "protestors' whose demands have been completely ignored in KCMO just can't come to grips with the fact that in order to actually make serious changes and progress around issues they're so concerned about takes some serious effort to be honest enough to try to work with actual facts and learn enough to be able to make relevant practical proposals.
NONE of which has anything to do with endlessly marching around yelling, damaging property, threatening residents who have nothing to do with the "issues" these folks support, and costing taxpayers millions in police overtime.
All entertainment, all the time.
And the public has considered all this background noise a long time ago.
Some adult supervision would be helpful.
Also a reality check.

These idiots are the first ones to call the police and they want to defund them. Funny if they think the police are bad now go ahead and defund them and keep them from the training they need, then bitch because they make mistakes. Liberal ignorance is amazing.

No explanation required. Fewer cops, easier for BLM crime. Simple.

Should create a police no response hood zip codes zone. Let abortion and Mogadishu culture diminish the chimp "dint see nuffin" population.

Everyone also has a constitutional right to stand out in the rain.
But to make believe that accomplishes anything is as delusional as these losers.
The crowd is getting smaller and smaller.
Soon only those most desperate for attention will show up with their bullhorns.
In fact, it appears we're already there!

^^Sounds like you never stood for anything in your whole wasted life. No wonder you made it here with the rest of the nearly-departed. What's it like to go through life with zero moral courage and without a backbone?

BLM - a business run by jews masquerading as blacks in order to get tax right off money to elect more jews and push jewish bolshevik interests in politics.

What has it accomplished for blacks, if successful what would it help blacks...less police in their neighborhoods, continued destruction of the nuclear family, more globo homo policies...how does any of that help blacks?

Equity will never happen because you are not going to convince Whites to commit more murders, rapes, armed robberies or assaults.

Redirecting $ from the Police to programs that help the needy and end poverty seems like a good cause. I just can't get past the idea that this "defunding of police" will eventually lead to cuts in the police labor force; essentially less police.
What am I missing? I really want to understand!

The country has spent multiple trillions of dollars since the mid 1960's trying to help the needy and end poverty. Look around and see how well that worked. Redirecting a relatively small amount from police to the grievance industry has no chance of ending poverty of those who won't work nor of helping those who become needy after spending their welfare check on tats and hair dye.

I agree. The money won't make à big enough impact.
I'm always told that I don't understand the "defund the police" movement. Well, tell me what it means! Don't just tell me I'm wrong! What is it?

I don't think any of the young college people chanting defund the police have thought long term that if the police are defunded; the young college people will dramatically increase their chances of being assaulted, robbed or murdered.

Very naive.

When you have mommy and daddy paying your bills and you are coddled in college; you really have no idea about the real world.

Charles Whitman said...

That's the conclusion I keep reaching! Taking money away from police will eventually lead to less police, and that will lead to lawlessness.
But I'm told that's not right. Well, what is right?

Hasn't the KCPD already been de-funded?

What other cities are contemplating has already been tried in Kansas City.

It didn't work.

When mayor Q-Ball defunds the police I can't wait to call a case manager, social worker and Ghostbusters when my daughter gets ganged rapped by a bunch of guys home invading my home at night.
