Look, whenever you threaten to douse the streets in blood for selling the exact same coverage of permitting cops to implement the regulation, anticipate folks to have a look at you sideways. Yes, there are nonetheless sufficient white liberals to buoy Black Lives Matter’s approval scores, however like Joe Biden—they’re dipping. No doubt they’d an opportunity to have a large dialogue about policing. There are unhealthy cops—little question. Instead, BLM went on an insane tangent of rioting, looting, wanton arson, and declaring policing as an instrument of white supremacy. Not even black Americans assist this rubbish narrative. Minneapolis had an specific “abolish the police” initiative that was roundly rejected this yr.
Anyway, this is the place BLM sits with the American public (by way of NY Post):
Support for Black Lives Matter within the US has declined within the 18 months since George Floyd was killed, a brand new ballot exhibits.
The ballot, carried out by Civiqs — an internet survey group related to the progressive media group Daily Kos — discovered 44 p.c of respondents presently assist the BLM motion.
It has dropped from the excessive of 52 p.c of respondents who supported BLM after Floyd was killed by a white police officer in Minneapolis in May final yr.
Meanwhile, opposition to BLM has spiked over the identical timeframe — 44 p.c presently oppose it, which is up from 28 p.c within the days after Floyd’s killing.
Eleven p.c neither assist nor oppose BLM and 1 p.c stay uncertain, based on the ballot.
I really feel like that is just like gun management. A horrible incident happens, assist spikes, after which dips when folks discover out and listen to extra about what the left is proposing. The tragic Sandy Hook capturing noticed assist for gun management soar to a document excessive after which return to regular, setting round 40-44 p.c.
The similar might be utilized to BLM, however with one notable distinction within the remaining stage of this public opinion journey. We have a horrible officer-involved incident, BLM’s approval spikes, after which the madness of the rioting begins. Whether white liberals prefer it or not, everybody needs extra police and extra public security. You do not should be James Carville to see how this can be a grossly unpopular proposal. And but, the left is hooked up to it like a barnacle.
