A series of new polls reveals that the majority of Americans believe there is a war being waged against police officers, and that support for the ‘black lives matter’ movement has dropped even further, with many more now seeing little distinction between the movement’s ‘protests’ and violent riots.

Polls from Pew Research and Fox News reveal that support for BLM has dropped more than ten percentage points in just a few months.

“As racial justice protests have intensified following the shooting of Jacob Blake, public support for the Black Lives Matter movement has declined,” Pew notes.

“A majority of U.S. adults (55%) now express at least some support for the movement, down from 67% in June amid nationwide demonstrations sparked by the death of George Floyd. The share who say they strongly support the movement stands at 29%, down from 38% three months ago.”

The findings also show that “The recent decline in support for the Black Lives Matter movement is particularly notable among White and Hispanic adults.”

“In June, a majority of White adults (60%) said they supported the movement at least somewhat; now, fewer than half (45%) express at least some support,” Pew notes, adding that “The share of Hispanic adults who support the movement has decreased 11 percentage points, from 77% in June to 66% today.”

A corresponding Fox News poll shows that “More voters consider the unrest in three US cities stemming from Black Lives Matter demonstrations to be riots rather than protests.”

“The poll, published Sunday, found that 48 percent of likely voters surveyed described violence in New York, Portland, and Kenosha, Wisconsin to be riots, compared to 40 percent who saw them as protests,” The new York Post noted.

Meanwhile, a third poll, from Rasmussen, reveals that 59% of voters believe there is a war being waged on police officers.

A whopping 80% of Republicans said it is obvious to them that there is a war on police, compared to 39% of Democrats.

In addition, a majority of independents (60%) agreed with the statement.

Previously, in 2018, 43% of respondents believed there is an ongoing war against police, with another previous high of 58% in 2015 also now being eclipsed.

The new poll found that 59% of respondents say they support the institution of ‘Blue Lives Matter’ laws in their state to classify attacks on police and first respondents as hate crimes with harsher punishments. Several states have already implemented such laws since 2016.

The Rasmussen poll reveals that while white voters are most likely to support ‘Blue Lives Matter’ laws (63%), a majority of 52% of black voters also support the idea, in addition to 49% of other minority voters also expressing support.

The poll also found that a huge majority of 84% of black voters expressed concern that attacks on police would lead to a shortage of police officers and a decline in public safety.

Fashion Brand That Vehemently Supported Black Lives Matter Faces Slave Labor Scandal

Woke Boohoo not so woke when it comes to its own employees.

Fashion brand Boohoo, which vehemently expressed its support for Black Lives Matter in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd, is now embroiled in a slave labor scandal.

US Customs and Border Protection has seen enough enough to launch an investigation into the company after campaign group Liberty Shared exposed how the company “is not doing enough to stop forced labour in the Leicester factories which make many of its clothes,” reports Sky News.

“The evidence of Boohoo and forced labour is quite compelling. I think it will be a wake-up call for British institutions about how they’re handling modern slavery enforced labour, particularly in a community like Leicester East,” said Duncan Jepson.

A report last year by lawyer Alison Levitt QC found that the allegations against the company, which centered around illegally low wages and poor working conditions, were “substantially true.” Employees were also made to work through lockdown, potentially exposing them to COVID-19.

Any potential US ban would cost the company more than a fifth of the company’s total revenue.

The scandal is particularly ironic because Boohoo was one of the numerous corporations that vehemently virtue signaled in support of BLM during last summer’s riots, with the company posting a black square on social media for “Blackout Tuesday while asserting, “we are listening.”

“We are louder together. Say his name. #GeorgeFloyd #BlackLivesMatter,” Boohoo also told its followers on Instagram.

In another post, the company stated, “We are committed to use our influence as a brand and community to help your voices be heard.”

“At Boohoo we will no longer just be doing our thing,” the company said. “We will be doing better. We see you, we hear you and we, throughout all of this and beyond will stand with you.”

Boohoo also encouraged its customers to specifically support black-owned businesses.

As we previously highlighted, several other major transnational corporations like Nike, Coca-Cola and Apple, all of which strongly supported Black Lives Matter, lobbied against a US ban on imports of products produced by Chinese slave labor.

But they all posted the black square, so I guess that’s what really matters.

Activist On Sadiq Khan’s Woke Statue-Toppling Panel Quits After Anti-Semitic Posts Uncovered

Admits he’s a full on BLM activist on way out the door

A member of London Mayor Sadiq Khan’s uber woke panel on ‘cultural diversity’ has been forced to step down after it was revealed that he had made anti-semitic and racist posts in the past.

The London Telegraph reports that Toyin Agbetu has quit the commission after posts were highlighted in which he wrote of an “immoral hierarchy of suffering” whereby victims of the Holocaust were “served well by Nazi hunters” in comparison to African victims of the slave trade. 

Ooof.

It has also been noted that Agbetu previously accused black MP Diane Abott of being “disloyal to her own community” and said another black MP David Lammy was a “poor example to Africans”.

As we reported two weeks ago, Agbetu also previously attempted to confront the Queen and demand an apology for Britain’s ‘historical injustices’.

He also has a history of vandalising statues he disagrees with, which begs the question why was this guy ever even considered for a commission reviewing statues in London?

Shaun Bailey, the black Conservative candidate for Mayor of London had demanded that Khan remove Agbetu from the commission, noting that the mayor’s “decision to give Toyin Agbetu a public post on his statue commission was concerning as much as it was dangerous.”

Bailey labeled Agbetu “a risk to the safety of all Londoners.”

Agbetu posted his resignation to Facebook, at the same time accusing Bailey of engaging in a “Afriphobic campaign” against Sadiq Khan, who is of Pakistani descent.

Agbetu wrote “I can’t take the risk that all the gains we have made re BLM unravel so I have had to make a frustrating but strategic move.”

He continued “I voluntarily decided to step back from the post before being asked, to help reduce the attacks on the important work of the commission, but I have no intention of letting such outrageous lies stand against me.”

A Khan spokesperson said that “The Mayor has a zero-tolerance policy towards racism and prejudice in any form, and all allegations of this nature are taken extremely seriously.”

Many also took issues with posts Agbetu made expressing ‘anti-vaccine’ views.

As we previously noted, several members of Khan’s commission are unelected activists with an axe to grind, and are being placed in charge of literally erasing history.

Poll Finds 44 Per Cent of Liberals Think Cops Killed 40 Times More Unarmed Black Men Than Actual Number

Perception demolishes reality.

Published

A new poll highlighting the gulf between what people believe and reality has found that 44 per cent of liberals think cops kill almost 40 times more unarmed black men than the actual figure.

According to a database called “Mapping Police Violence” compiled by data experts and activists, police officers in the United States killed 27 unarmed black men by any means in 2019. 13 unarmed black men were fatally shot in the same year by cops.

However, according to a nationally representative survey commissioned by Skeptic Mag, people who describe themselves as “very liberal” or “liberal” think that the actual number of unarmed black men killed by police per year is “about 1,000.”

The 1,000 figure is just under 40 times the actual figure of 27 unarmed deaths.

“Overall, 44% of liberals guessed 1,000 or more as compared to 20% of conservatives (this calculation is based on the cross-tabs shared with me by the researcher,” tweeted Zach Goldberg.

Goldberg also explains how, “Furthermore, the average liberal respondent also thought that a clear majority of people killed by police in 2019 were black (in actuality, roughly a quarter were).”

The huge disparity in the actual number of unarmed black men killed by police and how many a significant number of liberals think were killed by police can only be explained by media messaging and moral panic.

Innumerable major U.S. cities throughout the country were rocked by violence and rioting throughout last summer as a result of the perception that black people were being indiscriminately murdered by police officers in huge numbers.

In one instance, basketball star LeBron James even asserted that black people are “literally hunted EVERYDAY/EVERYTIME we step foot outside the comfort of our homes!”

Given rhetoric like that, which often goes unquestioned by corporate news outlets, it’s unsurprising that so many Americans are misinformed.

As we previously highlighted, people’s perception of how many fatalities COVID-19 has claimed are also completely erroneous.

A survey by research firm Kekst CNC found that the average American thought 9% of the U.S. population had died from coronavirus.

This percentage equated to almost 30 million COVID-19 deaths. The actual death toll at the time the survey was conducted was just under 155,000 deaths.
