It isn’t popularity; it’s fear

It isn’t popularity; it’s fear

Last night on his show, Tucker Carlson mentioned a Rasmussen poll that showed 62% of Americans approve of Black Lives Matter.  Now, Tucker framed it as “the incredible popularity of Black Lives Matter.”  But it isn’t popularity that is behind these high favorability numbers.

It is fear.

Do you really believe that 62% of the American people genuinely approve of a group that is burning our cities, looting businesses and advocating to defund and abolish police departments?

That Rasmussen poll isn’t a reflection of popularity.  Instead, it shows just how terrified Americans are to go up against a radical organization that has successfully forced major corporations and institutions to their knees.

When you’ve been terrorized into thinking that even the most mildly negative comment about BLM might get you fired from your job or the victim of an online rage mob, would you tell a pollster you don’t approve of them?

Truth is, if President Trump really was the strongarm dictator who wants to use the military against American citizens as the Left portrays him, his polling numbers would be through the roof for the same reason.

Hell, I’d have high favorability if you were terrified that your life would be destroyed for not approving of me.

When every major institution – including Congress, the news media, Academia, Hollywood, and even the military — has been cowed into submission for fear of what might happen to them, that isn’t proof of BLM’s popularity.  It’s proof that their terror and intimidation tactics have been a ringing success.

And if all these institutions are afraid to defy them, imagine what it’s like for the average American citizen who just wants to live his life, earn a living and raise a family.

You think we don’t see how quickly a person’s life is destroyed for voicing anything short of groveling fealty to Black Lives Matter? At this rate, it’s happening on a near-daily basis.

Yesterday, CBS Sports writer Kyle Boone reported that the football coach for Oklahoma State University was photographed wearing a One America News T-shirt while on a family fishing trip.

Who gives a crap?  I certainly don’t.  But apparently the outrage mob does.

Fueled by this so-called reporter fanning the flames, there are now calls for this football coach to be fired for “promoting” OAN by wearing an OAN T-shirt, and I can’t stress this part enough, while on a family fishing trip.

The reason this sports writer is blowing this into the scandal of the century is because back in 2015 after a BLM activist shot and killed five law enforcement officers in Dallas, OAN anchor Liz Wheeler criticized Black Lives Matter. Oh, and something something OAN is Russian propaganda or something.

And that is reason enough to destroy a man’s career for wearing an OAN T-shirt on a family fishing trip.

Now, tell me.  In the present environment, if a pollster called you and asked if you approved or disapproved of Black Lives Matter, what are the odds you might lie just to spare yourself the nightmare that comes with being the next victim of the online mob fueled by this kind of ideological bigotry?

This poll doesn’t measure popularity.  It measures the very breadth and depth of the systemic intimidation and coercion by Black Lives Matter.

Using violence, intimidation, and threats in the pursuit of your political ends doesn’t make you a popular civil rights organization; it makes you terrorists.

And so long as every major institution both outside and inside the government refuses to fight back against this, we’re on our own.

    DATELINE: DEFINING COURAGE!
    “Black lives matter, but I DO NOT agree with coercive measures taken to get this point across; some of which are falsified in an attempt to prove a point.
    People should not be made to feel they have to choose black race over human race. While I understand the urgency to feel compelled to advocate for black lives, what about our fellow law enforcement? Just because I don’t walk around with a BLM sign should not mean I’m a racist.”
    Windsor Vermont School Principal Tiffany Riley

    Superintendent David Baker and select board member Amanda Smith should both resign immediately having denied Tiffany Riley her first amendment right of freedom of speech. That will speak louder to our children than flying the flag of the BLM political group that screams out, “pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon”, transforming our nation into Venezuela.
