Atlanta Mayor Bottoms Has Had Enough

Atlanta mayor calls for citizens to stop ‘shooting each other’ after murder of 8-year-old near BLM protest site

Victim’s father: ‘They say Black Lives Matter. You killed your own’

By Gregg Re

In an impassioned press conference Sunday night, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms issued a full-throated call for citizens to stop “shooting each other up on our streets,” after an eight-year-old girl was shot and killed on the Fourth of July near a Wendy’s that has become a flashpoint of anti-police Black Lives Matter (BLM) protests in the city.

Bottoms, a Democrat who is considered a potential running mate for Joe Biden, made the remarks as she fought through tears — and the nation endured a new bout of urban carnage. Sixty-three people were injured and 17 killed in Chicago, including two children, over the weekend; and in New York City, 44 were hurt and at least six killed.

“Enough is enough,” Bottoms said. “Enough is enough. We have talked about this movement that’s happening across America and this moment in time when we have the ears and the interests of people across this country and across this globe who are saying they want to see change. But the difference in this moment in time with the civil rights movement — the civil rights movement, there was a defined, common enemy. We’re fighting the enemy within when we are shooting each other up on our streets.”

She continued: “You shot and killed a baby. And there wasn’t just one shooter; there were at least two shooters. An eight-year-old baby. If you want people to take us seriously, and you don’t want us to lose this movement, then we can’t lose each other.”

The start of a long overdue sea-change in Democratic leadership? Or too little, too late? Read the rest here: Fox News

They can show us concrete actions that produce positive effects.

All they are currently doing is whining about the consequences of decades of Leftist insanity.

Based on their track records, they will say “more Left needed”. We will observe worse results. They will repeat.

She still doesn’t get it.
Or she does and is just Bidening her time.

Hack Stone

Hack Stone saw what you did there. Well played sir, well played. Is that a 26Limabeans original, or have you pulled a Joe Biden and used someone else’s work without attribution?

26Limabeans

I have seen that double entendre used somehwere else but
cannot recall where. I will never co-opt someone elses work
but should no one speak up I will claim originality.
It was just hanging there ripe as a “Peach”.

Oh shit, I did it again.

Poetrooper

That’s absolutely im-Peach-able behavior, Beans…

Actions speak louder than words… the (D)’s like to talk tough, but don’t have the guts to get tough and stop the burning, looting and killing. They want the chaos to continue – I see it every damn day with Ted Wheeler in Portland. 39 days of protests… when does it end?

Here’s some of those the got locked up on Saturday… not a single black face in the booking pics:

Bottom left pretty boy with the cute smile….
He’s gonna need a lot of Chapstick.

All of them are probably out on bail and won’t get anything but a slap on the wrist when they do go to trial… the judges here are as worthless and in love with Pantifa/BLM like the mayor is.

Fyrfighter

Unless the Feds are on it, then they’re facing mandatory 10 years if they were attempting to destroy monuments… here’s hoping..

Andy Ngo, American conservative social media activist and journalist reported via twit from the Peoples Republic of Portland each was quickly released, including one known Antifa militant charged w/reckless endangerment & more.

Last year, that individual was at the @CiderRiot brawl involving Rose City Antifa..

Andy11M

This is only a temporary shift, the little girl will be quickly forgotten by the left and the news cycle and they won’t even slow down.

I hope that someone compiles a list of those killed and seriously injured either directly or indirectly due to the effects of the George Floyd and other hyped up police use of force incidents. Names and pictures would be nice, in order to better humanize those who only six weeks ago looked forward to a relatively quiet life after COVID-19. My wife and I were talking about this stuff last night; whether it’s a kid… Read more »

There was an article out there this weekend listing twenty dead–can’t find it now.

Once the free dope and liquor run out they will go home.

Oh, no! Decades of appeasement, and more recently open hostility to law and order has brough us chaos and corpses piling up like cord wood. Who would of thought that? Who could see that coming? A blind man sweetie…a blind man. Its only going to get worse. White liberal don’t live in the neighborhoods where decreasing the police presence is a problem. As usual, they’ve throw blacks and the poor under the bus.

I gave up watching the news and confine my entertainment to Amazon Prime and YouTube for all kinds of different stuff. Cancelled the cable and just have internet now. Moving at the beginning of August to suburbia in a house I bought this week. The real estate market is still on fire here in Texas and we’re seeing lots of out of state plates running around here. They’re all buying guns at least, so there’s… Read more »

Me and the Spousal Unit cut the cable cord over a year ago and don’t miss any of the programming. Hulu, Netflix, and Amazon Prime provide endless entertainment options. I like watching YouTube videos on my tablet.

Be careful and always carry in Suburbia – the Kens and Karens are everywhere! LOL

Slow Joe

Amazon Prime has a couple of shows that are mindblowing.

1) The Boys
2) Tales from the Loop
3) Upload

The Other Whitey

“The Expanse” is pretty good, too. “The man in the High Castle” *was* good until it suddenly went all batshit wokey-woke in the final season.

ArmyATC

Add ‘the Man in the High Castle’ to your list.

Mason

I didn’t like Upload. The Boys is awesome. Tales from the Loop was pretty decent, but really, really weird. Man in the High Castle was great until the last season.

No cable. No off air TV. No Dish. No cell. Just a simple pots landline with DSL. The summer folk are turning their camps into year round homes and turning their backs on the shitholes they came from. Alas, they will get involved in local politics and turn their new found town into the shithole they fled. Watched it happen to NH and southern Maine but now they have their eyes on the North. We… Read more »

Congrats Thunder! Hoping to head to Texas one day myself, guess we’ll see what the real estate market looks like then…

To paraphrase Pogo; “They have met the enemy and it is themselves.” Read several versions of this on evening last, plus some TV spots. The only thing that has been systemic is their ability to destroy themselves. Her disshonor the mayor is using this incident to advance her narrative to be on Groping Joe’s ballot. She can assure her spot by letting old joe get a sniff. These people have no one but themselves to… Read more »

Always loved Pogo.

Good satire there.

Watching the Floyd protests (riot) on day 1 – said to wife #2 (D), they have to stop this RIGHT NOW or it will get out of hand.

If we have learned nothing else from former protests, it is this – The stupids will find other things to be upset about and the original causes will be left behind.

ALL LIVES MATTER especially my family’s.

Boiling Mad CPO

Need to clear up my comment about wife #2 (D). I did know her (D) illness because all of her family were union, but I did not care. She has a heart that is bigger than most (R). In our 49 years of marriage, we have (sometimes against my better judgement) taken in: 3 grandchildren 2 Great grandchildren 1 nephew 1 daughter and 1 son – both at the same time a neighbor on hard… Read more »

Slow Joe

Yeah, but that it is not because your wife is a Democrat. She is a good person regardless of politics. I know plenty of people like that, who sadly keep a blind eye to what’s going on in the Democrat side. My wife’s sisters are a prime example of that. They are conservative in values and in everything they do in life but vote Democrat because Jewish people have always been Democrats, go figure. And… Read more »

Republicans aren’t heartless monsters. We just don’t have to publicize good acts. We don’t do it for the virtue-signalling publicity. We do it because it’s the right thing to do, and that’s enough.

The Other Whitey

Sounds a bit like my Step-Grandma (Dad’s step-mother). She has a remarkably conservative (and reasonable) viewpoint on damn near everything, but was a teachers’ union member for forty years and sadly chugged the koolaid, and thus votes straight d every time. I love that woman dearly, though. When we talk about politics, it’s always civil*. There was just one time when she told me she couldn’t understand why I don’t vote the way she does.… Read more »

They (there is always a they) have been dumping on the only folks keeping the barbarians at bay. These ill conceived calls to “defund” or eliminate the Police are going to turn many cities into our version of Mogadishu. Chicago, St Louis, Minneapolis are already seeing what happens when the Police are not there or do not respond. I am glad I do not live in a democrat stronghold.

Looks like atlanta has hit the Bottom, so as we used to say at the Central Inn’s bar, (Valley Stream, LI) Bottoms up.

RGR 4-78

If she gets selected by creepy uncle joe as his running mate, the headline may read;
Atlanta Mayors Bottom Has Had Enough.

Berliner

Associated Press just reported she has the Wuhan Flu:

““COVID-19 has literally hit home. I have had NO symptoms and have tested positive,” Bottoms tweeted.

She told MSNBC that she decided her family members should get tested again because her husband “literally has been sleeping since Thursday.” She said the only other symptoms she and her husband have been experienced are those similar to allergies they have.”

But her “surname” sounds sooooo …. studly:

Lance Bottoms

hehehehe

Yeah and June Cleaver used to tell Ward that he was pretty rough on The Beaver last night. And she wore a pearl necklace. Just saying. 😛

Berliner

Found it!

rgr1480

Bwa-hahahahahah.

June was hot … that’s why Eddie Haskill was so polite to her.

SFC D

Sounds like a gay pron star.

OWB

Kinda hope that she IS selected just for the entertainment value of all those BIDEN/BOTTOMS signs.

RGR 4-78

If they loose, the next morning headline could read;
Biden/Bottoms Out.

Graybeard

IMHO, she is the equivalent of a mother telling her brats to settle down, when what they need is an adz-whooppin’

If she and her (D) DA supported the LEOs, they wouldn’t have this as badly.

I feel for the (D) victims living in Atlanta, Socialists always turn places into something that makes a slit trench look like an improvement.

A Proud Infidel®™

DEEDS, not words. Until I see her take positive action I only think that she’s merely grandstanding on that Child’s death.

CM

The left literally destroys every single thing it touches without exception.

OWB

Was going to post a little “Bless her heart” message, but since she now is reported to have the ‘rona virus, it just doesn’t seem right.
