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.

Diverse Birmingham Set to Remove “Problematic” Street Signs and Statues

Dubious poll finds majority public support.

Birmingham City Council is set to remove “extremely problematic” street names and statues to satiate BLM supporters after a dubious poll found that a majority of residents supported the decision.

The survey, published by the Birmingham Mail, found that 63 per cent of respondents were in favor of a move to rename “road signs which glorify extremely problematic public/historical figures.”

Only 24 per cent opposed the measures, while just 26 per cent said it would be better to move the statues into museums rather than just tearing them down.

Some questioned the legitimacy of the poll results given that another survey conducted in Leeds drew less than 10 per cent in public support for similar changes.

However, Birmingham is one of the most “diverse” cities in the UK, with a 25% Muslim population. A 2018 study found that almost 50,000 of the 1.1 million inhabitants of the city cannot speak English.

“The survey also found that 51 per cent of people polled would agree to mandate that people from Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic (BAME) and female candidates are included on all council position shortlists,” writes Kurt Zindulka.

“A stunning 75 per cent went on to agree with the proposition that compulsory “equalities training” is necessary.”

The review was prompted by last year’s Black Lives Matter protests following the death of Fentanyl addict and criminal George Floyd.

As we previously highlighted, in an effort to better “reflect the diversity” of areas of the city, Birmingham City Council invited members of the public to come up with new street names for a regeneration scheme.

Winners included “Diversity Grove” and “Equality Road”.

As we document in the video below, changing street names is literally one of the first things Maoist militants did in order to seize power in China.

Minneapolis Target Store Ransacked by Rioters Features Mural Celebrating Rioters

Capitulation.

Published

on

The Minneapolis Target store that was infamously ransacked by looters last year now proudly displays a mural celebrating those same rioters.

Yes, really.

As we highlighted last year, the store was reopened with the goal of catering more to black shoppers and being less “racist.”

After a newly formed “racial justice committee” sought to tackle Target’s reputation of appealing primarily to white suburban shoppers, efforts were made to make the store more welcoming for black people while also stocking more products made by black-owned brands.

Part of this facelift included a new mural at the front of the store meant to represent the new ethos of the brand.

Now we know what that looks like – the mural features the words ‘Together We Build’ as well as a depiction of two BLM protesters holding an “I can’t breathe” sign.

The mural also depicts protesters with their fists raised triumphantly in the air while buildings around them are on fire.

“The figures in the piece symbolize protesters, who could be any of us,” according to one of the artists who worked on the display.

“The piece was created by Minneapolis-based nonprofit Juxtaposition Arts, which goes by JXTA,” reports Alpha News. “The multi-million dollar organization seeks to empower black youth to create activist art. This apparently includes teaching kids how to write graffiti during a three week summer camp, printing Black Lives Matter T-shirts and more.”

“JXTA also flies a flag that mimics the color scheme of the ones often carried by the New Black Panthers and other paramilitary black nationalist groups like the Not Fucking Around Coalition.”

Apparently, the mural was only supposed to be a “temporary” addition, but it is still there today.

Cop Suspended Without Pay For Mocking LeBron James

Don’t make fun of BLM.

Published

An Idaho cop who mocked LeBron James in a viral Tik Tok video has been suspended without pay and is now under investigation, with many expecting him to lose his job.

The controversy started when Nate Silvester responded to the basketball star’s infamous deleted tweet where he wrote, “You’re next. #Accountability,” alongside a photo of Nicholas Reardon, the officer who shot Ma’Khia Bryant.

Bryant’s death became a rallying point for Black Lives Matter despite the fact that she was literally attempting to stab two other African-American women to death with a knife before Reardon intervened with deadly force.

Silvester responded to LeBron’s awful take on the incident by creating a skit where he arrives at the scene of a violent crime taking place and then calls dispatch.

“Dispatch, I’ve arrived at that disturbance. Will you have LeBron call my cell phone right away, please? Thank you,” states Silvester while telling those involved in the altercation to hold on while LeBron calls back.

“LeBron, hey, yeah, it’s me again,” Silvester states. “Listen, I’m out here at this disturbance call and there’s a guy trying to stab another guy with a knife. What do you think I should do?”

Silvester tells LeBron the assailants are both black and that “deadly force is completely justified.”

“So, you don’t care if a Black person kills another Black person — but you do care if a White cop kills a Black person, even if he’s doing it to save the life of another Black person? I mean, that doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, but then again, you’re really good at basketball so I guess I’ll take your word for it,” says Silvester.

After the video received millions of views and network news attention, the mayor of Bellevue revealed that Silvester was under investigation after a private citizen filed a complaint against him.

Silvester’s own police department also wasted no time in throwing him under the bus.

“The Bellevue Marshal’s Office is aware of the extreme controversy regarding Deputy Marshal Silvester’s viral TikTok,” said a statement. “The statements made do NOT represent the Bellevue Marshal’s Office. The Bellevue Marshal’s Office always demands that our Deputies engage with our citizens in a friendly and professional manner. This is NOT how we expect our Deputies to act on duty or use city time. This is a personnel issue that is being dealt with internally.”

Not only will police now at best lose their jobs or at worst become the target of violence for attempting to properly police crime-ridden neighborhoods, merely making fun of BLM advocates like LeBron James is now also enough to warrant career cancellation by the mob.
