WHITE GUILT FORCES KANSAS CITY STAR TO COMMIT SUICIDE!!!

Today the Kansas City Star gave up on being a newspaper and published one of the most narcissistic Sunday editions in its history. 

The pandemic has sparked a wave of suicides but we'd never thought that the newspaper would kill itself in order to try an please social justice activists. 

To wit . . .

CHECK TODAY'S NAVEL-GAZING FROM THE KANSAS CITY STAR AND TRY TO EXPLAIN THE JOURNALISTIC STRATEGY!!!

These headlines are a lot of thing but NEWS isn't one of them. 

Even worse . . . It's unlikely that this kind of content from the star is something that ANYBODY wants to read.

There's a lot of thing going on in this town, record-breaking murder, current racial drama, police protest, a budget crisis, a homeless crisis, a substance abuse crisis etc. et. al. 

Instead, the newspaper offers a cleaned up version of its own history that won't satisfy ANYONE

The resources expended on these headlines would've better utilized reporting NEWS about current news issues in Kansas City. 

Listed but not linked because these headlines are self-obsessed garbage from today's Sunday newspaper . . .

You have to ask what they hope to accomplish or change by that story?

Further bankruptcy and and more liberal leanings.

Self destructive ways...due to incompetence.

Their notoriety kills. Their hero is Jayson Blair.

Demand anyone in your neighborhood who has a paper to stop the nonsense and pollution.
Slut-paper shame them and call them out for contributing to ultra-liberal communism.

Ask your grocery and convenience store to quit selling the lies.

Protest the Star. When will the investigate their recent fuck up of Hunter Biden?

Because Hunter Biden isn't the president and your royal fuck up, Donald Trump, with the blood of 300,000 unnecessary deaths on his hands, is?

Wallowing around in the 1950s and before!
The newspaper and its leaders were just such terrible people!
Of course, the Star is really terrible now, but for a lot of different reasons.
And who is not being covered by the paper in 2020?
Not much to read about the Latino community, or immigrants, or the Asian part of the metro population.
Not really even much about small businesses.
Or the 80%+ of the metro that ISN'T KCMO.
And apparently one of their past sins was to actually recognize who bought the paper and patronized their advertisers!
What a sin!
But where does the revenue come from now?
If anyone is producing hair shirts, the entire staff of the Star has become desperate customers.
Oh, woe is them!
Pitiful.

At this point, the Kansas City RED Star's pathological need for "Street Cred" by way of ethnomasochistic, self flagellation is a rhetorical SNL skit. It's so over the top that you gotta wonder if it isn't some kind of weird inside "Who gives a fuck we are going out of business anyway" joke.

We are reaching the white, self hatred singularity where white liberals stand in a room with megaphones and scream, "I hate whitey!" "No I hate whitey!!!" NO I HATE WHITEY MORE!!!!!" NO!!!! NO!!! NO!!!! I HATE WHITEY MORE THAN ANYONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's like the worst religion ever. A Marshall Applewhite, Hale-Bop Communist Comet cult where the fanatics punish themselves for their imagined sins in expectation of a Progressive Pentecost where the murdering, violent and scabrous souls of the recently anointed holy Mau Mau's sent beneath the earth for their sins return from hell to grant absolution. George Floyd, Freddie Grey, Michael Brown (Smirking with his "Hands Up") et al and the entire panoply of Progressive pukes who rightfully populate the Stygian abyss.

It's a white communal psychosis. The tip of the spear in this suicidal war on whites is the predictable "Karen"/white woman. Shrill, insistent and so sanctimoniously emetic that you can literally turn to a statue of salt in her presence. She sucks the life out of any and everything in close proximity and sure as hell has no trouble seroconverting the already dead between the eyes "Metropolis" morons at the so called "Paper of record".

What a fuckin joke the KC Star is.

Bad news guys, you still don't cover crime equally. A four year old kid is gunned down and your paper didn't even notice or make mention of him until law enforcement made him a rallying cry. Even then you opposed the crime suppression operation named after him, and under-played its success. Compare that to your coverage of the JCC shooting in Kansas.

Nelson said...

The Star was a very quick read today, less content than a Friday/Saturday paper. After seeing the front I went straight to the comics and Parade magazine to read about Tom Hanks. This is an all time low trying to punish the white people for making a growing KC area. There isn't any realization that yes there is some racism but not at the level this edition has taken it. Republished articles from over the past 100 years of news paper isn't an accurate depiction. I won't even line my birdcage with what I got today from the Star. This is a total sell out edition and they don't realize that most blacks don't even take the rag for the sports page, all they have ever been interested in anyway.

Long ago, the warped brains behind the Star thought it would be wise to piss off about half of their potential target market and cater to one particular mindset. Forget about any kind of balanced journalism -- the kind that used to be taught in the best journalism schools in America. This led the newspaper to massive layoffs, revenue losses and bankruptcy. You reaped what sowed, Red Star. Goodbye and good riddance.

This is on the heels of reporting racism in the fire department. Kansas City and the KC Star have been run by Democrats for 120 years. Who's to blame? One thing is for sure, they will never stop their discrimination against Republicans and conservatives. Will they ever flog themselves for that?

@ 8:17 - &:56 only used six words. Maybe you could learn to count. Back to first grade moron.

Not a mention of when people, mostly blacks, talk about Martin Luther King Jr they refer to him as "MLK" not "MLK,Jr". Goes to education and proper use of identifiers.

It sounds like the KC Star is trying to put The Call out of business by moving in on their readership. They're not going to take that laying down.

Anonymous said...

Define irony: Using an incredibly yellow piece of journalism in order to stay afloat. They cling to a very divisive zeitgeist that is the equivalent of an insecure high schooler smoking a cigarette for the first time in order to impress the cool kids. Please, for the love of the journalism God, end the Czar. Why in the fuck should I feel guilty for something that happened over a century ago?

Anonymous said...

It seems counterproductive to put several negative headlines about "negroes" causing crime in the old days in an article like this. While I know what the Star is trying to do with the article, it just reminds the entire community about crime based on a certain race. Not sure it was a smart move by the Star to include that particular angle in a "repentance" piece, but the Star has never been known for its good judgment.

Anonymous said...

They need to run a very similar piece next week aimed at the voters of America. You know, the voters who never saw any articles about Hunter Biden and how his father and uncle were clearly involved in making money off of the Chinese Communist Party and other parts of the world in exchange for influence in the U.S. government.

They essentially confessed to being conservative in the past.

I think that the US is probably the only country that has 17% of the population that has their own genre of music and language slang. They also have the highest drop out rate, highest crime rate, highest illiteracy rate. That same population raised hell at the beginning of the pandemic that they were not represented adequately in getting care for the pandemic and now that same minority is making noise that they won't take the vaccine because they don't trust it, so they will be disproportionally affected again, pure stupidity. They bring it on themselves. I know literally hundreds of blacks that have graduated high school and college, they speak and act like normal people. They don't live in a ghetto, they don't make minimum wage. Some blacks "get it", the rest are democrats and just keep doing the same wrong stuff over and over again.

Pretty gutsy move admitting that a bunch of guys who have been dead at 100 years maybe possibly weren't as enlightened on race as the current staff. Wow.

There were also as many hate crimes against Christians as against Muslims.

LOL "hair shirts" 8:49.

I do not agree with the silly statement that this is just right wing narrative stuff. what an ungrateful heir this generation of leaders the star has. to take the legacy of their founder and shit on it, and shit on the dwindling subscriber base at the same time! a sorrowful and dishonorable end to what nelson started. and what about all the art he bought? what an ungrateful generation we are. and compare the neighborhoods developed by nichols to the modern shit built in 70s or today, again, very ungrateful.
