Support For Black Lives Matter Drops to Two Year Low

Academics blame Trump, not months of violent riots.

Despite relentless positive promotion by the media and political elites, support for Black Lives Matter in America has dropped to a two year low.

An essay written by academics Jennifer Chudy and Hakeem Jefferson published by the New York Times analyzes how support for BLM soared to +20% in mid-2020 but rapidly dropped to only +5% – which is where it was in mid-2019.

The authors note that the figures serve to contradict “the idea that the country underwent a racial reckoning.”

The academics note that despite a high level of outrage at what happened to George Floyd amongst whites and Republicans, such groups subsequently “actually become less supportive of Black Lives Matter than they were before the death of George Floyd.”

Gee, I wonder why that happened?

The collapse in support began at around the time when violent BLM riots spread to 140 cities around the U.S. – despite the media erroneously reporting the disorder as “mostly peaceful protests.”

As Joel B. Pollak notes, while blaming Donald Trump’s the academics completely omit the real reason for the massive decline in support.

“They do not seem to consider the effect of violence, rioting, murder, and looting — except as reflected in Trump’s rhetoric — in alienating potential support,” writes Pollak.

As we highlighted last week, BLM suffered another political defeat after it was announced that a statue of Cecil Rhodes at Oxford’s Oriel College won’t be removed.

Rees-Mogg: Booing of ‘Take a Knee’ is Pushback Against Wokeness, Isn’t Racist

MP contradicts Boris Johnson on virtue signalling gesture.

Senior MP Jacob Rees-Mogg defended England fans who booed players ‘taking a knee’, asserting that the response is a backlash against “wokeness” and not an expression of racism.

Some fans once again booed the national team as players took a knee before the Euro 2020 game with Croatia on Sunday, while Croatia players remained standing.

The football establishment and pundits have tried to characterize the booing as racist, claiming that taking a knee isn’t a political statement, despite it being precisely that.

Players only began taking a knee in June 2020 in the aftermath of violent Black Lives Matter riots in response to the death of George Floyd.

Despite Prime Minister Boris Johnson urging fans to stop booing, Jacob Rees-Mogg leapt to their defense.

“There is a pushback more generally against wokeness (like) the really rather scandalous behaviour of the Oxford dons who are refusing to teach people at Oriel (College) who through no fault of their own are at a college that happens to have a statue of Rhodes that is difficult to take down and they shouldn’t be taking down anyway,” the MP told ConHome.

Rees-Mogg added that there “wasn’t any evidence” the booing was motivated by racism.

As we document in the video below, the virtue signalling gesture is beyond just a political statement in support of BLM, it is a display of cultural hegemony in that players or teams who refuse to mimic it are immediately targeted by woke mobs.

In reality, the act is a despicably onerous symbol of feckless conformity and it should be booed at every available opportunity.

Driver Ploughs Into BLM Protesters, Beaten by Mob

Claims attack wasn’t deliberate.

A driver ploughed into BLM protesters at high speed last night in the Uptown area of Minneapolis before being dragged from his vehicle and beaten by a mob.

The incident, which the driver pleaded that “did not mean to” do, left one woman dead and another in hospital in critical condition.

From the Daily Mail;

At around 11.40pm on Sunday, the driver sped into this area of Lake Street and S. Girard Avenue.

Footage captured by a protester shows the driver being held in a choke hold on the road as blood pours down his forehead.

The person filming shouts: ‘This n**** just came through 100 miles an hour, smashed this car and he just f***ing killed her.’

The driver begged for the police while insisting that he did not mean to plough into the demonstrators.

“You’re going down boy, you’re going down, it’s over. You bitch,” states the cameraman.

After a few minutes the police arrive and take the driver away in handcuffs. Authorities have yet to state whether the incident was a deliberate attack or what the motive was.

The BLM mob is still demonstrating over the police shooting of 32-year-old Winston Smith, who was killed after he pulled a gun and allegedly fired on US Marshals who were trying to arrest him.

Smith was wanted on a federal warrant and has been arrested at least 20 times since 2007.

In other words, just another poor unarmed innocent black man brutally gunned down by racist police.

As we highlighted last week, one of the demonstrators betrayed his complete ignorance by forgetting the name of the person he was even supposed to be rioting for.

Croatia Refuses to ‘Take a Knee’, Says It’s a Political Gesture Against UEFA Rules

Pro-BLM commentators in UK still claiming it isn’t political.

The Croatian national football team says its players will refuse to ‘take a knee’ before their Euro 2020 games because the stunt is an explicitly political gesture which would violate UEFA rules.

The argument made in the UK for England players taking the knee, despite being booed for it by their own fans, is that the gesture is merely a symbolic anti-racism stance and doesn’t equate to any form of political messaging.

However, the gesture only started being performed in the UK after the death of George Floyd last year and is inextricably linked with Black Lives Matter, a divisive, violent, extremist far-left political movement.

With Croatia set to play England at Wembley next week, the Croatian Federation said that its players would not be taking a knee before the match and will instead remain standing.

“At a press conference before the European Championships, Croatian national team spokesman Tomislav Pacak did not want to answer a question related to kneeling, but Croatian journalists said the decision was made by the association because kneeling is not part of the UEFA protocol and the UEFA is explicitly opposed to any politically motivated manifestations in sport,” reports Remix.

The Hungarian national team will also remain standing for the same reason, with the Hungarian Football Association explaining in a statement, “The rules of UEFA and FIFA do not allow politicization on the pitch and in the stadium, which the MLSZ not only accepts but agrees with. The national team will not express its condemnation of any form of hatred by not kneeling before the matches.”

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban went even further, asserting that the display was a “provocation” when performed in Budapest by Ireland players and is only being performed in some European countries due to their historical guilt over slavery.

Despite the fact that England will flagrantly violate UEFA’s rules on political gestures multiple times by taking the knee, don’t expect them to face any official sanctions.

As we document in the video below, fans who boo players taking the knee have been denounced as racists despite their reason for doing so being exclusively to express opposition to Black Lives Matter’s extremism, iconoclasm and demented political goals.
