Democrats have pushed heavily for investigations into the peaceful January 6 protests that left one unarmed and peaceful protester, a veteran, dead and many injured by police. President Trump and many other conservatives have been removed from social media platforms for speaking out in favor of Americans’ right to protest a fraudulent election. But while the Democrat-run media will have you believe that Americans are demanding answers about the January 6 protests, the truth is that they want BLM investigated according to a new poll.
A new Rasmussen Reports poll finds that only 49 percent of Americans support Nancy Pelosi’s sham January 6 panel, which is intended to investigate the Capitol protests, where trespassing was the highest crime committed. But an astounding 66 percent of Americans want BLM and Antifa’s actions in the nationwide riots following George Floyd’s death to be investigated instead. Newsmax reports:
A supermajority of likely voters (66%) want the Black Lives Matter and antifa protests investigated, while a majority do not support Pelosi’s inquiry into the Jan. 6 storming of the Capitol, according to the latest Rasmussen Reports poll.
Just 49% support Pelosi’s House Jan. 6 panel, and majorities of Blacks and Hispanics back an investigation into the protests that followed the murder of George Floyd by a police officer. The demonstrations sparked violence in a number of U.S. cities.
“Sixty-seven percent of whites, 64% of Black voters, 66% of Hispanics and 62% of other minorities think Congress should investigate the 2020 riots in U.S. cities,” Rasmussen Reports wrote in the analysis of the poll. “Seventy-five percent of Republicans, 60% of Democrats, and 63% of voters not affiliated with either major party say Congress should investigate last year’s violent protests.”
Also, according to the poll, majorities of likely voters back police and reject the narrative of systemic racism in law enforcement.
“When the mayors of cities in which violent riots took place in 2020 refused to let police immediately stop the crimes taking place, it sent a message to violent criminals across the nation that crimes will be allowed and criminals won’t be touched,” the National Police Association says in a statement. “For the last year, violent crimes have increased nationally and the lack of support from politicians has resulted in the number of police officers declining into a short staffing recruitment and retention crisis.”
But it gets better: 53 percent thing police who defended against the BLM/Antifa riots deserve medals, 62 percent say elected officials who supported the riots should be roundly criticized, 76 percent say young people need to be taught to listen to police, and less than 20 percent say police should be defunded.
This poll serves as a wrecking ball that destroys numerous Democrat narratives. Now, we know for a fact that Americans do not support their agenda.
