People are not actually as stupid as the media pretends they are.
This media is telling you that it was a peaceful protest when Antifa-BLM rioted for months last summer and burned down entire cities. They are also telling you that a few boomers walking into the Capitol because the cops waved them in is the worst attack on democracy since the Civil War (an analogy that doesn’t even make sense).
Normal people think this is all retarded and insane.
A new poll suggests that most Americans believe Congress is investigating the wrong riot, amplifying the magnitude of the US Capitol ‘insurrection’ while showing no concern over last summer’s burning and looting of major cities.
The Rasmussen Reports poll, released on Wednesday, found that 66% of American voters believe Congress should investigate the Black Lives Matter riots that spread across the nation following the May 2020 slaying of George Floyd in police custody. That compares with 49% who support House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s select committee probe of the January 6 Capitol riot.
The findings come amid continuing political polarization over the Capitol breach, which President Joe Biden and other Democrats have touted as a racially motivated insurrection and “the worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War.” Pelosi on Wednesday rejected two of the five Republican appointees to the investigative committee, at which point House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said the GOP would not participate in the “sham process.”
The BLM riots left dozens of people dead and 2,000 police officers injured. In Minneapolis alone, property destruction was the worst the US has seen from civil unrest since the Los Angeles Rodney King riot of 1992. Four people died during the Capitol riot, which sprang from a protest of alleged election fraud. Three were protesters who died of natural causes, such as heart attack. The fourth was a rioter who was shot by a police officer. Also, hours after the riot, Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick died from a stroke in his office.
Only 21% of respondents in the Rasmussen poll said they would oppose a congressional investigation of the BLM riots, just half the percentage who don’t believe Congress should probe the Capitol riot. While most of last summer’s BLM demonstrations were peaceful, more than 500 turned violent.
Voter support for investigating the BLM riots is similar across all racial groups. About 67% of whites, 64% of blacks and 66% of Hispanics said such a probe should be done. Even 60% of Democrats agreed that the violent protests should be investigated, compared with 75% of Republicans and 63% of independents.
Ultimately, it is totally obvious that the government/media doesn’t even care what the people think. They are spinning a narrative exclusively for their most hardcore cult believers. Everyone else is either going to shut up, or be sent to some kind of reeducation camp.
The boldness should make you uneasy.
