Majority of American Voters Say Antifa, BLM Should Be Investigated More Than Jan 6
Poll shows voters think last years's riots are far worse
Since January 6, Democrats have used the events at the Capitol to push their anti-Trump agenda by labeling it as an “insurrection.”
The events earlier this year were used strategically by Democrats to frame supporters of President Donald Trump as domestic terrorists.
Since then, the FBI has spent colossal amounts of taxpayers' money to round up people involved.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi even formed a new commission in Congress to advance the "investigation."
But unfortunately for Demcorats, their biased narrative that Trump supporters are terrorists seems to be failing.
According to a new poll via NewsMax, the majority of voters believe an investigation of the Antifa and BLM rioters would be more suitable than one of January 6.
The poll found that likely voters preferred investigating the social injustice demonstrations that roiled the nation last summer, which were far more destructive.
66% of voters say they would like Black Lives Matter and Antifa protests investigated, and the majority don't support Pelosi’s inquiry into the Jan. 6, the latest Rasmussen Reports poll said.
Just 49% support Pelosi’s House Jan. 6 panel, while the majority of Blacks and Hispanics back an investigation into the violent protests following the death of George Floyd.
Rasmussen Reports wrote in the analysis of the poll:
“Sixty-seven percent 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 of Republicans, 60% of Democrats, and 63% of voters not affiliated with either major party say Congress should investigate last year’s violent protests.”
The poll found some other interesting nuggets too.
The Washington Examiner reported:
– 53% think Congress should award medals to the law enforcement agencies that defended their cities from violent looters and rioters in 2020.
– 62% believe elected officials who downplayed the 2020 rioting and looting deserve to be criticized, a number higher than the 51% who believe politicians deserve criticism for downplaying the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
– 76% of voters believe young people should be taught to comply with police rather than resist or flee arrest.
The news comes just days after a non-violent protester who entered the Capitol on January 6, was sentenced to eight months in prison for obstructing an official proceeding.
Meanwhile, hundreds of violent Black Lives Matter rioters had their cases dropped.
38-year-old Paul Allard Hodgkins from Tampa, Florida, pleaded guilty to obstructing an official proceeding after being identified in surveillance footage and photos carrying a Trump 2020 flag in the Senate chamber.
