Ultra-leftists tend to make several statements that bugger belief, but the “Mayor” of Atlanta, Keisha Bottoms, recently made some real blunders when she attempted to detail why crime has skyrocketed across Atlanta under her “leadership.”
Frankly, she would have been better off remaining silent.
According to the uninformed perspective of Ms. Bottoms, the rise in crime apparently has nothing to do with defunding police, nothing to do with letting criminals roam free, and nothing to do with deliberately divisive Democrat policies.
Apparently, the rise in crime is supposedly due to the fact that COVID restrictions were lifted “too early.”
“Remember in Georgia we were opened up before the rest of the country, even before the CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] said that it was safe for us to open so our night clubs and our bars remained open so we had people traveling here from across the country to party in our city.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
Some of these statements are so hopelessly stupid that it is difficult to conceive of these individuals even graduated from middle school, never mind graduated to becoming the mayor of one of the largest cities in Atlanta.
Then again, Ms. Bottoms very well may serve as the embodiment of the failure of public schools, which is especially clear as she continues her utterly illogical tirade.
“COVID left a lot of people battered and bruised, not just physically but also emotionally … Until we deal with the systemic issues of gun violence in this country, how easily young people, people with mental illnesses can access guns in this country, I’m afraid that this will not be the last summer that we are having this conversation.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
Ah, but of course. The good old “feelings” argument, which is virtually always subject to change, including by the hour in the especially ungrounded cases (which would be the vast majority of leftists).
However, the most moronic statement of all occurs when Ms. Bottoms essentially admits that all Democrat cities are in chaos, underscoring that the issue is really with Democrats, rather than “COVID restrictions.”
“If it were an Atlanta issue alone then I’d know that there was something that we weren’t getting right… but I’m talking to mayors and hearing from mayors in cities and large urban areas, we’re all experiencing this which means that we all have to work together to find a solution to this gun violence that is gripping our nation.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
Ha ha ha!
Thanks for pointing out the fact that all Democrat-run cities are little more than unmitigated disasters, complete with an explosion in crime and a massive influx of people out of the cities and into, ironically, red states like Florida and Texas.
Whoever writes Ms. Bottoms’ speeches clearly isn’t very bright, especially given the moronic actions taken by other liberal cities.
For instance, Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. literally just threw out 200+ cases against looters because resources apparently must be focused on chasing Trump’s tax returns (sadly, this is the truth).
Needless to say, this decision drew scathing condemnation from former NYPD Chief of Patrol Wilbur Chapman, who wryly pointed out the liberal prosecutors’ incompetence.
“If they are so overworked that they can’t handle the mission that they’re hired for, then maybe they should find another line of work … It allowed people who committed crimes to go scot free.” [Source: Fox News]
Seriously. Let’s defund them.
After all, the rioters were already overly confident that they would not be punished at all, which would explain why open gun fights are now taking place across New York City, including in broad daylight.
Moreover, “protestors” have become so emboldened that they actually held a “looting dance party,” which apparently came with a healthy dose of massive thievery, along with abject violence and destruction.
Imagine how emboldened they’ll be now … regardless of COVID restrictions.
