Shocker! The public support for Black Lives Matter has plummeted since last summer’s riots…oh, I mean “peaceful protests.’
The New York Times published a report about the decline in support for BLM, and they just can’t grasp why Americans wouldn’t support the Marxist-led group anymore.
Hint: It might have something to do with supporters of BLM burning entire city blocks to the ground, or the push for Marxist-based Critical Race Theory in schools.
And of course, the authors of the Times report blame Republicans being racist…or something.
Jennifer Chudy and Hakeem Jefferson wrote: “After Mr. Floyd’s death, Republicans reported much stronger support for Black Lives Matter than they had earlier in 2020. For a party often characterized by its racial insensitivity and antagonism toward racial minorities, this increase in support was striking. But perhaps even more striking is its rapid decline.”
The authors assume that Republicans are “antagonistic” towards minorities, which is false and built on a false premise that conservatives don’t like minorities. Want to know why I know it’s false? Because I am a conservative. We don’t all just sit around and plot ways to make minorities’ lives a living hell. I know that might come as a shock to those who write in the ivory tower in Manhattan for the New York Times, but it’s true.
Churdy and Jefferson went on to write: “Like other racial groups, white Americans were more supportive of B.L.M. following Mr. Floyd’s murder. This sentiment, however, did not last long and, as with Republicans, support eventually plunged. This movement among Republicans and white Americans helps us understand why aggregate support for Black Lives Matter has waned since last summer.
In both cases, the deterioration in support is noteworthy because we do not merely observe a return to pre-Floyd opinion levels. Rather, since last summer, Republicans and white people have actually become less supportive of Black Lives Matter than they were before the death of George Floyd — a trend that seems unlikely to reverse anytime soon.”
The authors, like so many others on the Left, falsely equate “Black Lives Matter” the declarative statement with the Marxist-led Black Lives Matter, INC.
I don’t know any conservative that doesn’t believe that Black lives matter—and if I did, they would no longer be a friend of mine.
But the organization Black Lives Matter is a radical Leftist activist group that tolerates and even participates in violence with the end goal of fundamentally transforming America as we know it.
That is worthy of condemnation, and once Americans realized that the idea that Black lives matter is different than the organization, the organization’s support has declined…precipitously.
The authors did get one thing right: It is a “trend that seems unlikely to reverse anytime soon.”
And for good reason.
Black Lives Matter has been more harmful to Blacks than any major movement in the country today.
Because of their push to defund the police, there are fewer police patrolling high-crime black neighborhoods, and that has led to a rise in black-on-black homicides.
Americans are wising up to the frauds at Black Lives Matter. And the numbers don’t lie.
