Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms Is the
Black Mother (& Leader) America Needs Now

Original Article

As protests for racial justice and against police brutality continue to unfold across the country (and worldwide), many of the events have turned violent, with nighttime burning and looting taking the place of more peaceful daytime rallies. And unsurprisingly, President Trump is only stoking the (literal) fires with his incendiary and not at all fact-based tweets. (Namely, he called protesters “THUGS” in his characteristic all-caps tweet-shout, and dropped a phrase with racist origins that also glorifies violence: “When the looting starts, the shooting starts.”) But among all the nation’s leaders who, unlike Trump, are actually trying to do some leading

Comments:

People who disrespect the property and lives of others ARE THUGS. Bottoms is a lightweight. It's a comedic travesty, however, that Stacy Abrams does not share her last name.

This is just another unjustified blast against President Trump. Those looting and robbing are THUGS. If the looters and those carrying weapons to a 'demonstration' are THUGS. There is no other name for them. They are bento on collapsing the economy and ruining small businesses around the country. The intend, along with the statements given in the write up is also intentionally supporting the removal of President Trump.

I have long been saying that the true presidential contender is going to be their VP choice. This is going to be a bait and switch game this year, and the democrats won't be able to say thing one about it either. They are still in the sheeple mindset, therefore fair game for the DNC. As long as they don't nominate Spacey Stacey Abrams, I guess I can live and laugh at whomever they pick.

Side note. When I want to call someone a .... an anal orifice, I call them a yahoo. Swift would be proud. Secondly, yes... the 'protesters' were thugs.. a lot of 'em. Ask the owners of the Target or the Autozone or the myriad of small, family businesses that got looted or torched. For years, the Left has been telling us that Trump is bad.... not because he's done bad things. The economy was great. Lifting the regulatory burden was great. Standing up to overseas tyrants was.... hey, I could do this all week. But Trump said some bad things. Or said good things ineptly. That should be enough for ALL of us to not like him, eh? But the left has enough moral ambiguity to choke a herd of horses if they buy the protesters without reservation. 170 businesses torched in Minneapolis alone. Lefties, don't tell me about the mote in my eye, eh?

NEW YORK — The looters attacked with crowbars and bolt cutters. They broke open stores in the Fordham neighborhood of the Bronx until they came to two glass doors side by side. The door to the left led to a tattoo parlor, the one to the right to a watch and jewelry store. They smashed the right door and ducked around the sharp glass teeth left along the edges. Inside, they found a treasure case filled with gold and silver watches and laptop computers. They swung again, sending glass flying. They grabbed what they could, fast, missing a couple of watches

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms and U.S. Representative Val Demings of Florida have risen in prominence amid protests against police brutality as Joe Biden weighs whether to choose a black woman as his Democratic running mate for November's presidential election. Activists say such a pick would excite disenchanted African-American voters and demonstrate to a crucial part of the Democratic base that Biden is committed to criminal justice reform following the death of George Floyd, who was black, in Minneapolis last week at the hands of a white police officer. Biden has said Demings, 63, a former police chief of Orlando

Once you understand the larger objectives, everything becomes a sequence of predictable events. The term “community policing” has been used for several years by groups advocating for radical changes to law enforcement; however, behind the innocuous phrase is really a much more serious agenda. If each community can determine the enforcement of law, then essentially all communities can eliminate the underlying law itself. Remove local enforcement of law and the local community can independently assemble a social structure separate from all other binding contracts that frame a larger societal compact.

During the event, Obama said he rejected a debate that emerged in “a little bit of chatter on the internet" about “voting versus protests, politics and participation versus civil disobedience and direct action.”“This is not an either-or. This is a both,” he said. “And to bring about real change,
