From calling everyday Americans terr0rists to framing the events of January sixth as one of our nation's most devastating catastrophes, the Biden administration has made it a goal to paint patriots as a grave danger to the United States. And the current political climate may make it seem as if the entire country agrees.
The truth is that most people, at least according to a Rasmussen poll of likely voters, are more concerned about holding Antifa and BȽM accountable for their dastardly deeds.
Despite the left's insistence that Antifa is nothing but an idea and BȽM only operates peaceful protests, sixty-six percent of those polled want the two groups investigated.
And it isn't just Whites who want these violent rioters investigated. Going against the democrats' narrative, most Hispanics and Blacks polled back the idea of investigating BȽM and Antifa after their sometimes months-long riots devastated cities and businesses. 60 percent of respondents backing these investigations identified as democrats.
Fewer than half of those surveyed support Nancy Pelosi's embattled investigation into the January 6th events.
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 several 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.”
The Washington Examiner provided further food for thought by reporting that 11 percent more Americans are critical of politicians who downplayed the looting and rioting events of 2020 than those who minimized what happened on January 6, 2021.
– 53% think Congress should award medals to the law enforcement agencies that defended their cities from violent looters and rioters in 2020.
– 62% believe elected officials who downplayed the 2020 rioting and looting deserve to be criticized, a number higher than the 51% who believe politicians deserve criticism for downplaying the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
