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).

‘Tis the Season For Social Justice Messages on NFL Helmets, End Zones and Hats

Football season is upon us, despite liberal leadership’s cancel culture in full force

NFL Social Justice

Football season is upon us, despite liberal leadership’s cancel culture in full force. Stenciled in the helmets this year, players can choose from six phrases: “End Racism,” “Stop Hate,” “It Takes All of Us,” “Black Lives Matter,” “Inspire Change” and “Say their Stories.”

The end zones will read, for the second straight year, “It Takes All of Us” and “End Racism.” The league is also bringing back the “Say Their Stories” initiative and begin a new one where each team will “highlight its social justice work during a regular-season home game in Weeks 17 and 18.”

“We are committed to Inspire Change and the social justice work that inspires change for the long term,” said Anna Isaacson, NFL’s senior vice president of social responsibility. All of the initiatives “will provide a unified time frame for us to further amplify all of the work that our clubs are doing and that will lead into the playoffs where Inspire Change will continue to take center stage” added Isaacson. “The key message for us as the season is starting, we are ramping up again in a big way with our social justice work.”

End zone stencils will remain in place for all home games except when another specific cause is to be recognized, such as the Salute to Service game. “Salute To Service” will replace “End Racism” in one end zone and “It Takes All of Us” will still remain in the opposite end zone,

Another addition will be a knit hat that can be worn on the sidelines of Weeks 17 and 18 by players, coaches, and other personnel “to add visibility to the cause.” The hat will also be sold at retail, and “100% of the league’s proceeds will be donated to Inspire Change grant recipients.”

Racist Rock: Boulder Removed from UW-Madison ‘Painful History of Discrimination’

Published

Rock

The University of Wisconsin-Madison is spending somewhere between $30,000 and $75,000 for good use; to move a rock. But not just any rock, no, this is a racist rock. “Chamberlin Rock, located on top of Observatory Hill, is named in honor of Thomas Crowder Chamberlin, a geologist and former university president” reports the Wisconsin State Journal.

However, “for some students of color on campus, the rock represents a painful history of discrimination” the article explains. The 70-ton boulder was removed from the “heart of campus” at 6:30 am Friday morning following demands from students over the past year.

The boulder will be moved to university-owned land southeast of Madison near Lake Kegonsa. In its place, the university plans to place a plaque to honor the former university president. Wisconsin State Journal reports:

The boulder was referred to as a “n——-head” — a commonly used expression in the 1920s to describe any large dark rock — at least once in a 1925 Wisconsin State Journal story. University historians have not found any other time that the term was used but said the Ku Klux Klan was active on campus at that time.

UW-Madison Chancellor Rebecca Blank approved the removal of Chamberlin Rock in January but the Wisconsin Historical Society needed to sign off on the rock’s removal because it was located within 15 feet of a Native American burial site…

… The Black Student Union led the call to remove the rock last summer. Nalah McWhorter, the group’s president and a UW-Madison senior, said in an interview this summer that the demands to remove the boulder had been around even before she arrived on campus three years ago.

“I’m grateful that we have had the opportunity to do this and that the rock will be removed,” she said. “It was our demand, and it was something that we put all the work in for.”

The Black Student Union worked with Wunk Sheek, an Indigenous student organization on campus, to lobby for the rock’s removal.

“We did all these presentations,” McWhorter said. “We went through all of these meetings during an academic year with a lot of other stuff going on, so the work really relied on us, as students, and as Black students.”
