First and foremost, whilst TKC doesn't believe in much . . . It's Sunday and we want to be nice for at least a hot second. And so . . . We send our VERY BEST WISHES to former Kansas GOP honcho Dwight Sutherland and hope he has a very quick and painless recovery following a dust-up over Prez Trump election signage. Our tiny bit of Photoshop parody is posted simply to offer a bit of "encouragement" to the image that has been spreading around local conservative social media circles like wildfire.
Accordingly . . .
GOLDEN GHETTO CONSERVATIVES ARE FIRED UP OVER DWIGHT SUTHERLAND'S HORRIBLE BEAT DOWN!!!
We've seen the chatter and it's explosive and seems be generating a great deal of GOP "enthusiasm" against the Democratic Party.
For those who don't know, Mr. Sutherland is part of an elite, wealthy local family. He's still a top ranking influencer among the Kansas GOP and whilst his political commentary has far too much bluster for mainstream outlets . . . His ideas resonate among the right-wing elite in flyover country.
Translation . . . This wasn't just some palooka getting his lights knocked out in a driveway dispute.
What right wing hacks can't get across and a reality they don't like sharing with the plebs . . . The elite run their party just like the Democrats and this violent incident over Prez Trump signage reached out and touched one of the top ranking Republicans in the Midwest.
And so, over the past 48 hours the trickle down has been severe and a great many older white dudes with money are angry and ready to double down on their Prez Trump support.
Problem is, Kansas can't get any more "red" in support of Prez Trump.
Instead, what we're seeing is down ballot targeting and using this tragedy to work up ire against more formidable Democratic Party opposition.
As always, Conservative Jack Cashill is far more skillful at ramping up conservative rhetoric than anybody else in the KC area . . . His words are powerful because they strike a strong moralistic tone that cuts to the core of Heartland denizens.
Accordingly . . .
Mr. Cashill calls out Democratic elite in a message that's going viral . . . Here's the word:
"Kansans, if you are wondering why you see so few Trump, Marshall, and Adkins signs, this is what my friend Dwight Sutherland looked like after confronting the man who had repeatedly destroyed his yard signs. It would be nice if Biden, Bollier, and Davids denounced the thuggery. After all, "Kindness is everything."
Like it or not, the messaging is masterfully crafted and should help to inspire even more Republican loyalists to the polls.
The idea of a red-wave is far fetched across the USA . . . But in JoCo . . . Stranger things have happened.
And so, in much the same way that a pregnant woman involved in a violent altercation with the KCPD ignited outrage across urban Kansas City. A rich white dude beat down and put in the hospital over his politics seems to have inspired outcry for his people to march to the polls.
Meanwhile the local division and threat of violence continues to spike and rather than any solution to ease the tension . . . We've seen "many sides" use tragic personal suffering to bolster their own campaign rhetoric. Forgive the reference to antiquity but referencing an injustice is a tried and true tactic that has been part of the discourse of Western Civilization since the long-ago time when politicos attempted to justify Helen of Troy's penchant for going ears over ankles with cute foreigners. And none of that is to say that the tactic isn't legitimate given the indignities suffered by aggrieved parties. We're simply identifying strategy for the uninitiated or the hopelessly naive.
And so, the voting, hype and persuasion persist in hopes that an increasingly violent American power struggle will result in a triumphant conclusion instead of the typical anti-climactic compromise that has been the hallmark of the modern era and typically (always) sells out the
suckers true believers.
