That headline is an honest question . . . Because, objectively, Dwight looks pretty beat up.

KANSAS CITY MSM DOWNPLAYS RECENT ALLEGED POLITICAL VIOLENCE AGAINST CONSERVATIVES!!!
This is probably for the best because violent arguments over two grumpy old men seem overwrought. And we were always skeptical that anybody was going to start a revolution in order to keep a former game show host in power.
Still, before we dismiss the idea of the Kansas City political violence, let's not forget that Kansas City witnessed weeks of rioting that pretty much destroyed the Country Club Plaza and killed plenty of local biz before the worst part of the pandemic had taken its toll.
Like it or not, that "mostly peaceful" protest lacerated a cop's liver, burned a police car, burned a TV truck, looted, killed a guy, smashed windows and cost KCPD more than 2-MILLION bucks.
Nevertheless . . . The right-wing consistently tells us that "facts matter" and the fact is that Prairie Village Police will not charge the driver of a vehicle that struck Dwight Sutherland . . . And that Trump threat note was nothing but a fugazi according to KCPD.
Accordingly . . .
Skeptics might claims that there's tough competition to play the victim as we slouch toward the 2020 November vote showdown. Even more critical denizens of the discourse might cry foul in much the same way that everybody laughed over the "Juicy" Smollett incident. However, that's far too cynical and overlooks the legit suffering that exists as the economy crumbles and violence escalates regardless of its political motivation.
Still, the only thing we know for sure is that debate, rhetoric and outcry have been amplified ahead of the election in a contest wherein there are no good guys and the struggle for power boils down to a good old fashioned fight over resources that started way back when our hairy ape ancestors fought over a water hole i.e. the discovery of politics.
Accordingly, we share these links from "many sides" of the political spectrum so that our blog community can help us distinguish real from imagined political threats suffered by our local conservative pals.
