The two biggest stories over the past few weeks have been pretty strictly about the Chinese coronavirus (though that has been a story for months) and the death of George Floyd, which was followed by the riots that have devastated communities and a desire by Leftists to “defund the police”, very much meaning abolishment of the police system (with no clear replacement ever brought up by them because these people worship chaos).
Following the rise of this desire to defund the police (even with gaslighting attempts to salvage it by saying that “defund the police” doesn’t actually mean “defund the police”), ABC News ran a poll released last Friday regarding both the sentiment amongst Americans regarding the “defund the police” movement and their concerns regarding the Chinese coronavirus.
Let’s begin with the “defund the police” movement, which if the Democrats continue to insist on actually doing this, they will be utterly defeated come November.
According to the poll, 64% of Americans oppose the movement to “defund the police”. The fact that it’s not far higher is a bit of a worry, all things considered, but this still presents a clear issue for Democrats: run on this platform and expect to lose soundly.
It’s perhaps for this reason that Democrats like Joe Biden and James Clyburn voiced “concerns” with the idea of defunding the police (let’s not pretend, however, that if this were a far closer issue, or it tipped in the Left’s favor, that they wouldn’t support it wholeheartedly. They are not moral people).
What’s more, 60% oppose reducing the budget of police departments to reallocate their funds to other social programs. This is what some on the Left have been gaslighting us on with regard to the meaning of “defund the police”. They try to make the case that “defund the police” really just means “reallocate some of its resources and funding to other social programs.” Right, because when we say “defund Planned Parenthood”, we only mean reallocating its funding to other programs. Yeah, no one is buying the idea that “defund the police” doesn’t mean getting rid of it entirely or leaving it financially incapable of operating. At least, no one with half a brain would buy that.
This is particularly the case when the Minneapolis City Council unanimously voted to replace the MPD with a “community-led public safety system” that would be hilarious if it didn’t guarantee an increase in crime once the department is obliterated. No Leftist can honestly say that “defund the police” means reallocating some of the department’s resources when a major city has just voted to abolish the police. “Defund the police” means abolish the police.
And this is something that the vast majority of Americans agree would be extremely ridiculous. Interestingly, however, ABC News found that a majority of black Americans agree with defunding the police (57%) and reallocating the money to other social programs (64%). This is not particularly surprising, however, considering a lot of African Americans are conditioned and programmed (by the Left) to distrust and hate the police, believing them to be a major threat to their safety.
The Left has destroyed the minds of African Americans to the point where they make themselves out to be victims of a phantom racist system that unfairly treats and judges them differently from others based on the color of their skin, when that is not at all the case. Remember when I talked about the Left owning many of the pillars of power and how education was part of one of them? With the Left controlling the education system, it’s not surprising that teachers would teach their students that the system is unfair and needs reform or a total overhaul (these are Marxists, after all) and that minorities suffer because of “white privilege”.
It’s all bogus, but the Left is conditioning African Americans to be victims, so to find many of them supporting the idea of defunding the police is not that surprising. They believe the police are more of a threat to them than a benefit, even as statistics show otherwise.
According to the poll, “nearly three in four white Americans and 57% of Hispanics are against defunding the police, and two-thirds of whites and 58% of Hispanics oppose moving budgets elsewhere.”
What is also not surprising, however, is that 55% of Democrats support defunding the police and 59% support reallocating its resources to other social programs. These people are also conditioned to distrust and hate the police (though they will be the first to call them whenever they are in trouble, without a doubt). A funny hypocritical aspect of the Left is that they hate the police but they also believe police should be the only ones with access to lethal weaponry.
Suffice to say, however, the Democrats would not win running on this issue. Most people who agree with this movement either are criminals who would benefit from it, are black people who have fully bought into the Leftist bullcrap idea that America is systematically racist or are affluent white liberals who will never suffer the consequences of such a movement because they are periodically protected by people with guns.
Moving on to the other issue on the poll, let’s talk about the Chinese coronavirus and people’s attitudes towards it months after the lockdowns first began.
While 69% of Americans are still concerned about contracting the virus, that is a near 10-point drop from mid-May and is the lowest since mid-March, around the time when we first began locking things down or prepared to lock things down. 31% are also “not concerned”, the highest since mid-March.
59% say they are willing to eat at a restaurant, which is considerably higher than the 41% who said the same in mid-May. 57% also would be willing to stay in a hotel, compared to 45% in mid-May, 44% are willing to fly on a plane, compared to 29% back in mid-May, 57% said they are willing to attend church compared to 42% in mid-May and 54% are willing to send their children to school, compared to 31% in mid-May.
82% also said they are willing to go to work, but the thing about that is that, while this is an increase from mid-May, it’s not a massive increase, as 71% were willing to go back to work back then.
People have had it with the lockdowns and want to get back to normal while also keeping in mind that the virus is still a thing (not that it seems to matter to the Left when it comes to protests and riots, so it shouldn’t matter to anyone else, given the inconsistencies in enforcing lockdown orders).
It’s already painfully clear that the lockdowns didn’t help at all in saving lives an only served to ruin them financially, so there is no point whatsoever in continuing with these draconian measures (the Left will continue using them as much as they can, however).
Both of the issues discussed here indicate that the Left is not faring particularly well. Most Americans don’t want to defund the police, an issue the Left has espoused, and many Americans want to go back to their normal lives without restrictions (though with cautions).
The Left, however, in all their splendid stupidity, will likely continue pushing for draconian lockdown measures and defunding the police (likely without realizing that you can’t enforce lockdowns without a police force).
