TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS CONFRONTS RECALL REDUX!!! RENEWED 'TAKING KC BACK' GROUP ANSWERS TOP 5 QUESTIONS!!!

There's no arguing with a simple fact: Kansas City is a disaster right now.

The campaign season political blame game is working overtime as we approach the November vote but here in this cowtown there have been serious questions about the leadership of Mayor Quinton Lucas from "many sides" of the political spectrum.

From our friends and neighbors on the East side, there has been frustration with Mayor Lucas for his inability to take a bold stand against the KCPD Chief Smith and force a vote on the removal of the top cop. 

Small biz leaders throughout the area complain about the double standard of coronavirus restrictions.  

And many of our suburban pals and readers regret supporting Mayor Q given this strident advocacy for social justice and willingness to walk hand in hand with Black Lives Matter protesters. With no mask . . . No less.

All of these concerns sparked the recall effort that has now come back around and looks a even more serious at second glance than this snarky blog anticipated. 

To wit . . .

TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! WE'RE FIRST TO TALK WITH 'TAKING KC BACK' ORGANIZERS ABOUT THE RECALL REDUX AND THEIR PLAN OUST MAYOR LUCAS!!!

In our brief talk with the group we wanted to focus on questions that local MSM didn't cover. Sure, we had some fun jokes at their expense but mainstream reporters from legacy dead-tree media were quick to tag the group as racist without hearing what they had to say . . .

Accordingly . . . In classic post-faux-hipster fashion we ask the TOP FIVE questions about the recall and hope to start the latest & greatest kc political conversation that doesn't involve threats or tough talk but instead continues our quest for knowledge and somewhat-fun-facts . Check-it . . .

TKC: What’ll be different about the recall this time???

"We’re taking a much more deliberate and organized approach. We are running this more like a campaign therefore, we have formed a PAC through the MEC. We recognize the need to be able to reach a much wider audience. We also need to do a better job of conveying our true message and not allow ourselves to be painted into specific corners by politicians who just want to hold on to power. We have a great team in place. We meet weekly and communicate multiple times a day. We are utilizing each of our talents in a more effective and efficient way."

TKC: What did you learn about the recall process???

"We learned during the last recall that it’s a much more difficult undertaking than we thought. We didn’t have a solid plan. None of us had done something like this previously and it showed."

TKC: Why should someone sign up for the recall again???

"We’ve seen the effects of Mayor Lucas’ leadership and policies on our city and it’s been disastrous. Innocent people, most tragically children, have been gunned down in unprecedented numbers just in the short time since Mayor Lucas took office. Over 400 small businesses have had to permanently close their doors, and countless workers have been left unemployed, due to arbitrarily applied health restrictions. Note that not one big box store has ever been investigated or shut down by Mayor Lucas’ Health Department. Under Mayor Lucas’ leadership, the city’s public safety proposed budget has been slashed, which will inevitably make Kansas City and the surrounding areas much less safe. Kansas Citians are hurting like never before and Mayor Lucas continues to turn a blind eye and deaf ear. We just don’t see it getting better and simply cannot afford to wait to vote him out."

TKC: What would you say to somebody who thinks the group is racist???

"It’s interesting to note that during the initial recall, we had many African-Americans sign. Several of the organizers as well as numerous people that signed the first petition voted for Mayor Lucas. There are many areas where Mayor Lucas’ leadership (or lack thereof) has adversely effected all Kansas Citians, whatever their race or background. It’s also important for Kansas Citians to know that we have begun the vetting process for a new KC Mayor. The potential candidates are racially diverse. If any of your readers are interested in running for Mayor we would love the opportunity to talk with them."

TKC: A lot of skeptics disagreed with the pro-Trump sentiments posted in the Facebook group despite their own frustration with Mayor Quinton Lucas . . . Given that Jackson County traditionally votes Democrat, how will you reach out to voters who might support the recall but not Prez Trump???

"We have a new Facebook page. There is an inherent problem with trying to coordinate a Facebook group. That is that anyone can post anything at any time. We’re doing our best to police the posts and comments to keep things on topic, but every once in a while, something slips through. Our recall effort has absolutely nothing to do with President Trump or any other national politician. This isn’t a democratic or republican issue. Our sole focus, for now, is recalling Mayor Lucas so that a new leader, who truly cares about Kansas Citians, can be elected and help our city begin to heal."

Looks like they have things more organized this time. That's a good thing. Forming a PAC is the right way to go and will give them more flexibility. I think a lot of people from the across the metro would be willing to support the effort, too.

Get out and support this cause. This mayor should have had major push back after he sided and kneels with rioters who destroyed the city and the BLM group who is pushing racism and hatred against white people. Then there is the fact that he has to be stealing money by saying the city is broke and not fixing streets and other infrastructure. City hall itself needs to be cleaned out, getting rid of one person is not going to help. These people are sick and Kansas City looks like a gang infested dumpster with the new so called art (graffiti) There is also the art show or whatever that is going to happen but the Plaza lights can't?
Clean house KC.

This is a multiple step process. We are beginning to vet candidates. If anyone has possible candidates or suggestions of people who would be great leader for Kansas City please send them our way. But keep in mind first things first we have to recall the current mayor before we can get a new mayor.

They should get a better PR firm for sure.

Wouldn't it be silly to announce a candidate when the signature gathering hasn't even started? IMO it could possibly be career suicide for prospected candidates. You just never know who they might be.

If your Democrat Mayor, destroyed small business, locked you down in your house, make you wear masks for no reason, and, you still vote for him, you are NOT a redneck, cause rednecks are not that stupid.

And replace him with...whom? Everyone who might replace Lucas as mayor is a flaming liberal, so it would end up being more of the same, or worse. Stick with the devil you do know over the devil you don't know.

The city is broke, Sly James, Troy Shulte and their downtown over everything else ensured that.

This is nothing more than a coven of angry, whining MAGATs. “Recall the Mayor,” but don’t have a fucking clue who should replace him? You fools are wasting (y)our time. You lost the KC Mayoral election and are just about to be pulverized in the upcoming Presidential race. Just move to JOCO already...

Yawn.

9:20 A coven, you say! How Halloweenish of you! Seriously, none of us in the Northland care about this recall. We are really insulated to problems that plague you people south of the river. All we care about up here is our own environment; our lawns kept clean and neat, our neighbors are taken care of, etc. We like to cook BBQ and hang out and drink beers with the neighbors and go to the lake on the weekends after we check in on our 401ks. Most of us had no problem working through the pandemic, so....This mayor recall. meh. That's a you problem.

This ain’t about race. We didn’t recall either Cleaver or James, who were black worthless mayors just like Quinton. Maybe this is about homosexuality.

And what would they have done for you, exactly, except tell you to fuck off?

You read this little sordid, racist, hate-filled rathole of the internet and think everybody's with you or something? Guess again.

Nothing you do this time is going to make anything different. Hanging around closed restaurants was a brilliant move. Lots of foot traffic there!

Recall? The combined IQ of these organizers is less than that of the Mayor. Maybe you guys can run a MAGA no mask candidate to replace Lucas???

Maybe we can get that Trump guy as Mayor - he's going to be looking for a job after January 21st.
And he's going to need one, his creditors are taking everything he has except the giant Clown suit on his back.

Mayor Lucas bought himself a Diet Coke! This should have been put to a vote for the citizens to decide!

Also, you guys need to reread the first amendment. Congress didn't pass any laws abridging your rights to free speech, and your petition fell flat.

KCMO and Jaxco citizens said...

I hope that this recall effort is successful, but what is the succession protocol for a displaced, disgraced mayor in KCMO? If nothing else they should should also remove Frank White. The demonstrations downtown infringe upon the rights of citizens and courts to conduct their duly required official business with both the city and county. Chaining doors shut without being held accountable is allowing the lunatics to run the asylum's that are KC and Jaxco. They also cause a violation of safety issues like access by EMT's, firefighters and police or security if someone had an illness or if there was an accident or a fire in City Hall or the Jaxco Court House. These are legitimate concerns and they should not go without the required punishment, I don't care what color they are. The rights of the whole are just as important as the rights of the few. Get a spine McNeely!

Two possibilities come to mind. This is a front for a certain out-of-town agitator or a recent mayoral candidate who is a sore loser and would like to use the Covid crisis to impose martial law or a reasonable facsimile thereof. Or both.

Lickass needs a couple Johnson County woke Karen's some BLM illiterates and some fat girls from the lake to take s knee on a red X painted in the street by the last murder.

Anonymous said...

2:25. The other possibility and the only realistic one is this is a group of concerned citizens who are concerned about the devastating effect that allowing the utterly incompetent boy blunder to continue his misbegotten administration of KC will have on the community. They wish to save their home from a disaster.

Anonymous said...

No, 3:15, martial law! Plandemic! 85% of mask wearers get COVID! Joe Biden aborts babies with his teeth Bill Gates planned all this he's going to implant a chip in us to track our moves and turn us into Communist Antifa remember when the Deep State ran a hit piece on Dr. Stella Immanuel about believing that vaccines had alien DNA, Reptilians ran the world and the Nephilim had sex with humans? Well? How long do you think a virus could be manufactured to stay dormant before activating or do you think a dormant but deadly virus could be injected into a body and then triggered by something else, maybe 5G sequestering DNA I would be happy with a Trump regime for the next 20 years fighting the domestic terrorist group we call the Demoncrat Party Hillary, Omaba and Biden and all of their cronies are about to be in prison for a reason.

We have to stop pandering to the lowest common denominator of society, namely the brain washed democratic supporting free shit army. They are going to be the death of this once great country. MAGA indeed. Look around tax prayers were are going to get more and more screwed if you all continue to vote for demoncrats.

3:15: Pardon my cynicism, but a group who claims "this is a group of concerned citizens who are concerned about the devastating effect that allowing the utterly incompetent boy blunder to continue his misbegotten administration of KC will have on the community" and yet who took no action when Sly James was concentrating the vast majority of the city's revenue on downtown and completely ignoring neighborhoods seems to me to be a tad disingenuous. And perhaps even a group of citizens concerned that the gravy train is now passing them by.
