Keisha Lance Bottoms is the only Democrat who runs her city with common sense. She's not the same as Jacob Frey of Minneapolis, or Jenny Durkan of Seattle. However, sahe's still a Democrat. But, I gotta feeling she may become unpopular with the lunatic woke-class of the Democrat base because she doesn't talk like a regular squish Democrat. She's got guts!
Fox News reports 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 cit
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."
