There’s one group that stands out for causing destruction and disorder across America.
Black Lives Matter.
BLM protesters have robbed businesses, burned buildings, started riots, attacked police, and shamed America.
Now people have had enough.
Support for Black Lives Matter (BLM), the movement that alleges “systemic racism” in policing in the United States (and in general), soared after the death of George Floyd but has fallen back to levels last seen in 2019, the New York Times reports.
According to an essay by academics Jennifer Chudy and Hakeem Jefferson, net popular support for BLM was +5% in mid-2018, soared past +20% in mid-2020, but then quickly fell again, and is now just above +5%, where it was in mid-2019.Breitbart News
It’s at the lowest support level in 2 years, which is nothing but good news for our country.
Here’s the chart, showing how support has fallen off a cliff since the death of George Floyd last summer.
There’s still work to be done to push it back below 2018 levels, but it’s clearly on the way there!
Much of the fall has come from Republicans and white people in general.
No doubt they’re tired of seeing largely African-American protesters bringing chaos to our streets.
The authors write that the decline was felt largely among whites and Republicans, who shared outrage at what happened to Floyd but have since “actually become less supportive of Black Lives Matter than they were before the death of George Floyd” (original emphasis).
The scholars go on to explain declining white and Republican support for BLM by referring to “increased politicization of the issue by elites,” including then-President Donald Trump.
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.Breitbart News
BLM has exhausted American conservatives, and they just want the madness to end.
But for that, we need strong America First leadership, not weak and spineless RINOs.
We can start by backing patriots challenging RINOs in primary races ahead of the 2022 mid-terms.
Candidates like Joe Kent in Washington state, who is challenging the pro-impeachment RINO Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler.
There will no doubt be other suitable candidates too. Keep a look out in your state!
