Poll: More Americans Want 2020 BLM Riots Investigated Than Jan 6 Capitol attack

Portland Riots

As House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has created a committee to investigate the January 6th riot at the Capitol, a recent poll has found that more Americans support federal investigations of the 2020 Black Lives Matter riots.

In comparison to the 49% of American voters who say they support Pelosi’s committee investigation of the January 6th riot, “A new national telephone and online survey by the National Police Association and Rasmussen Reports finds that 66% of Likely U.S. Voters think Congress should investigate last year’s violent protests, in which more than 2,000 police officers suffered injuries in the line of duty.”

The support for a federal investigation into the Black Lives Matter riots is also bipartisan. According to Rasmussen Reports, “Majorities of every racial group and political affiliation support a congressional investigation of last year’s violent protests. Sixty-seven percent (67%) 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. Seventy-five percent (75%) of Republicans, 60% of Democrats and 63% of voters not affiliated with either major party say Congress should investigate last year’s violent protests.”

After reviewing the results, the National Police Association blamed the demonization of police by elected officials for last year’s riots.

“When the mayors of cities in which violent riots took place in 2020 refused to let police immediately stop the crimes taking place, it sent a message to violent criminals across the nation that crimes will be allowed and criminals won’t be touched,” the NPA said in a statement. “For the last year violent crimes have increased nationally and the lack of support from politicians has resulted in the number of police officers declining into a short-staffing recruitment and retention crisis.”

Discussing the 2020 riots, NPA spokesperson retired police Sgt. Betsy Brantner Smith said, “Many elected officials of both parties and at all levels followed up, not by apologizing to their citizens for failing to uphold the law, but by accusing police officers of systemic racism, being in need of reform, reimagining and defunding.”

    As a society, we cannot allow Organizations with destructive intent to destroy property as it occurred with BLM. I do not believe BLM has done anything positive for Black Americans.

    BLM and their ‘agent provocateur’ ANTIFA have caused billions of dollars worth of property destruction throughout their 14 months of rioting, looting, arson and murder. It’s been ‘open season’ on conservative white people who are MAGA supporters. We’ve been harassed, ‘cancelled’, called ‘white supremacists’, ‘domestic terrorists’, ‘white nationalists’, ‘racists’… and the list goes on. We’ve been the victim of every black talking head’s commentary on all the usual ‘black racist’ news networks (CNN, MSNBC) as well as the object of ‘black influencers’ scorn (there are too many to list and you know who they are anyway). It’s time they’re held accountable. It’s time the Democrats who have turned a blind eye and a deaf ear (because they pander to ‘the black vote’) are held accountable. It’s time BLM and ANTIFA are declared terrorist organizations and banned. It’s time their manifesto is banned, including CRT, the 1619 project, anti-racism – whiteness – white privilege rhetoric… banned from brainwashing white school children as well as employees in the private and public sectors as well as members of our military. It’s time their reign of Marxist anarchy comes to an end.

    BLM, the organization,should be held liable for crimes to property, and harm to persons, to include deaths resulting from the violence occurring as a result of their demonstrations, rioting,and acts of terrorism. Where are the lawyers helping the people file law suits? Pierce the corporate veil.

    Pastors and ministers we hold to higher standards, to the religious standards they teach. When we see ministers fail to follow their own teaching, we turn away from them and won’t listen to what they say.
    Yet, these adherents to this political philosophy seem to think what has been tried in the past can be made to work if they do something, anything different.

    Karl Marx (LEVY) (yes he was a Jew) is one of those philosophers (Journalist). Study his true Biography for yourself. He hated his Rabbi Parents. He hated God. He belittled Blacks. When he received a large sum of money, went with his intellectual buddies to binge on drinking, turning his back on his own family allowing them to be evicted from his own home. Karl Marx (LEVY) was a Self-Center, Egotistical, Atheist, Racist and the intellectual community continues to rave about Marxism including Critical Race Theory.

    They’ve seen the failure of Socialism/Communism even when it is as plain as the nose on your face. The Soviet Union Failed. The CCCP fails its people trying to make all people OUTCOME EQUAL dumbing them down. Venezuela having been one of the Richest South American Countries has now become the poorest. Cuba touting the glories of communism has the poorest record of taking care of its own people. Socialism/Communism has been guilty of the killing of a hundred million people in this last century. (Need I remind you that the dark ages can’t even come close to those numbers?)

    Our best American example of Socialism’s failure are the Pilgrims when they first came here and tried to have all things in common (Outcome Based?). They soon discovered that socialism did not work and were about to starve to death. Mind you, they were close to being a perfect people. (wallbuilders.com a good source of this info) They found a scripture that changed their direction. “One who does not take care of his own family is worse than an infidel”. From then on they all had their own land and provided for their own families.

    We turn our backs on ministers who fail to practice what they preach and you in the media, government and education are some of the worst hypocrites that one can imagine who continue to tout Socialism. Why would anyone want to repeat the same failing mistake?

    The Judeo/Christian form of Republican/Democracy has worked well for over 250 years and we have the oldest EXISTING CONSTITUTION IN THE WORLD (those that exist for other countries have changed many times). Millions across the Globe want to come to America. Yes, we had to discover racism and slavery to be terrible but show me a country in the world like we Americans that provide for the needs of other nations and peoples around the world. This speaks well of our Creator that we have acknowledged for all that time.

    An example that God is : you tube: Raised from the Dead by Reinhard Bonnke. There are other examples of such events but since this is about a minister who was dead for 3 days and was raised from the dead through the Name of Jesus (not the only example but I chose this one because of the length of time this minister was dead and his description of Hell and Heaven).
