If you pay attention to leftist media, Black Lives Matter rioters are popular heroes of the people, fighting injustice wherever they find it. But “the people” disagree, according to a new poll. You’ve probably seen videos of police doing their jobs. You’ve probably seen violent and/or drug-addled criminals die in some of those videos. It’s unfortunate, but it happens when people resist arrest or attack police. You’ve also likely seen videos of BLM burning and destroying, looting and pillaging. You may have even had these terrorists attack your community. Naturally, people like the police more.
Harvard’s Center for American Political Studies asked Americans for their opinions on cops versus BLM — and Americans sided with the police. TheBlaze reports:
The poll found that 35% of respondents had a very favorable view of the police, and another 34% had a favorable view of the police, for a combined 69% favorability rating.
Only 21% of respondents said they had a very favorable view of Black Lives Matter, with another 24% having a favorable view, for a combined 45% favorability.
About 21% of respondents said they had an unfavorable or very unfavorable view of the police, while 39% of respondents had an unfavorable or very unfavorable view of Black Lives Matter.
The U.S. military comes out the clear winner. Americans were also asked whether they like our men and women in uniform. An astounding 78 percent love our military. Only 13 percent say they don’t like then. Even the corrupt corporation Amazon received a 71 percent favorability rating — higher than the CDC, which didn’t even crack 60 percent.
All of this is bad news for liberals, but it gets even worse for them. A whopping 61 percent of Americans say that school kids should not be taught that America is a racist country. Only 39 percent support the teaching of Critical Race Theory.
The Left tries hard to push its crazy ideas on the rest of us, but this poll and others show that people don’t accept the craziness.
