Most Americans consider the demonstrations by the Black Lives Matters (BLM) movement, and other “left-wing radicals” in cities like New York, Portland, and Kenosha, to be violent, according to a survey.
The results show that 48 percent of those polled describe the revolts as riots, while 40 percent consider them only protests, according to Fox News on Sept. 13.
Likewise, 68 percent of Republicans consider these disorders to be riots, with which 30 percent of Democrats agree. These riots cause a big increase in crime in the US, with hundreds of deaths and a lot of material damage
The riots began after the death of African-American George Floyd on May 25, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and spread to other cities, led by the BLM and antifa, another radical-left group considered to be terrorist.
These riots have the support of the Democrats, in particular of the Democratic candidate for the vice presidency, Sen. Kamala Harris (Calif.) who wants them to continue to be repeated even after the presidential elections of Nov. 3.
President Donald Trump clearly expressed the position of the Republican Party as a defender of the country, while also referring to the Democratic Party that supports the riots.
“If the Democrat Party wants to stand with anarchists, agitators, rioters, looters, and flag burners, that is up to them,” President Trump said during the Republican National Convention.
“The Republican Party will remain the voice of the patriotic heroes who keep America safe and salute the American flag,” Trump added according to the video tweet by Creative Director Benny Johnson.
