When violent riots broke out across major U.S. cities, Democrats and the liberal media applauded them. They even ignored their own COVID restrictions to let thousands storm the streets, smash up stores, and burn down buildings. Only when their polls dipped did they bother to give half-hearted condemnations. Now, a new poll reveals just what Americans think the riots are doing to our country.
Honestly, if a person thinks the riots did anything good for our country, they are either completely uninformed or just blindly believe CNN. Since late May, Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and other radical leftists have been rampaging through numerous cities across the country. They claim it’s over social justice and ending police brutality.
But few people believe them.
After all, when you loot stores owned by black people, how are you helping black lives?
Democrats might be trying to change their tune today, but remember, they were the ones applauding the violence just a few short months ago. They even promised to defund police departments as a response. Just when communities needed the cops the most, Democrats deprived them of them.
But it was all for a good cause, right? Raising awareness of “systemic racism” in our police departments and the rest of society? Not quite. Because a new poll reveals an overwhelming majority of Americans think the riots set back the cause of civil rights.
A significant majority of U.S. voters say the recent violent protests across the country have hindered, not helped, the cause for civil rights, according to a new Just the News Daily Poll with Scott Rasmussen…
Fully 65% of voters said the violence associated with the riots makes it “more difficult to achieve racial equality and civil rights,” while just 13% said it helps the cause.
Rasmussen pointed out that even a majority of black voters –51% – responded that violence is setting back efforts to achieve racial equality…

Democrats should be worried. Why? Because they claimed these riots were to further the cause of social justice and—ultimately—civil rights. They let riots run loose through their cities, because it was their “right” to burn homes and loot stores.
When Trump called for law and order and offered the National Guard, the Democrats rejected him. They have to own all the destruction and mayhem they helped create.
Now, Americans are saying it didn’t help the civil rights cause one bit. In fact, they believe it’s set us back a great deal.
Of course, they’re right.
Another troubling poll (for the left) revealed that most victims of the riots say they influenced their vote. Most of the rioting took place in overwhelmingly blue cities. Democratic voters watched as their elected officials ignored their cries for help—and encouraged rioters and looters. These are the people who say their vote has changed.
Gee, I wonder who they’re going to vote for in November? I can tell you, it won’t be the sleepy guy with dementia!
Democrats claimed the riots were a grassroots movement of outraged Americans striking back. But we know they were organized by paid operatives who work closely with the DNC and Democratic donors. We’ve learned that in many cities, anarchists were bused in to wreak the havoc. Few locals were willing to destroy their own communities.
This was never about civil rights, but about punishing people for supporting Trump. And come November, the Democrats are going to regret it.
