In much the same way that protesters used the Country Club Plaza for a social justice battleground with police, this weekend the MAGA truck crowd will turn the embattled entertainment district into an unsanctioned campaign event race track.
To wit . . .
NEVER FORGET THAT IN 2020 IT WAS CULTURE WAR POLITICS THAT FINALLY KILLED PLAZA DESPITE YEARS OF BLAMING YOUNGSTERS FOR SCARING PATRONS!!!
Certainly, dunking the prom queen at the fountain was horrible (if not hilarious) but all of the often violent shenanigans from youngsters were NOTHING compared to a year of protest that shattered windows, looted shops, burned police cars, burned TV news vans and closed more than two dozen stores in what was once the crown jewel of cowtown retail.
And now . . .
THE KANSAS CITY TRUMP PARADE TARGETS THE PLAZA!!!
Here's a peek at their plan that should've been written in crayon.
Organizers are oping as many as two thousand cars, trucks, and motorcycles will gather at the Liberty Memorial at 2 p.m. on Saturday.
The plan then calls for the procession to drive from the Liberty Memorial, down Main Street to the Country Club Plaza.
“We are looking for a lot of people, a lot of great interest, a lot of people who just want to come out and celebrate America,” (LOSING Kansas Congressional candidate) Adrienne Foster said. “And they know America is on the ballot in November.”
A KCPD spokesperson said the department is aware of the event, although it is not an official, permitted parade. Police say they are expecting counter-protesters but remain hopeful that the event will be peaceful.
Despite about 10k "fans" on the social media site . . . The chatter seems just a bit overblown and strangely reminiscent of the Mayor Q recall that talked a big game but then FAILED to deliver on promises so far.
Still, whilst we agree with EVERYONE'S right to peacefully assemble . . . We can't help but think that this "parade" without a license will turn out disappointingly just like so many big ideas promised by politicos from both sides of the aisle who are a lot more chummy with each other than the plebs dare to imagine.
Nevertheless, we respect the disillusions and superstitions of our blog community who fantasize that there's really any difference among the ruling class and they next war they're preparing to start.
