The destructive footprints left by the BLM movement and the recent Goya food boycott in the United States, generated a growing rejection among the population that ended up turning against the Democrats, in effect boomeranging.
“Americans are fed up and they are angry. Increasingly, they will push back; polling shows Democrat candidate Joe Biden’s lead over Trump is shrinking as a result,” described writer and columnist Liz Peek on Fox News on July 13.
Peek lists some of the issues that are inciting the growing anger of Americans, also driven by the dishonesty of the liberal media and the mistreatment of President Donald Trump.
“Repudiation of the cancel culture, the looting of neighborhoods, the defaming of our nation’s history, the destruction of public monuments, attacks on the police,” are part of the repugnant actions of the leftists.
It should be clarified with respect to the culture of cancellation that is known by that name to the tendency to withdraw support of people or media entities considered unacceptable for their comments, actions, or for transgressing certain expectations.
The most recent act of the culture of cancellation was promoted by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) against the president of the Goya Foods, Robert Unanue, because he expressed his appreciation for President Trump and his management, in the White House.
Ocasio-Cortez urged her supporters to stop buying Goya products, even throwing them away, to the outrage of many citizens who demanded that they be donated to those who needed them.
An initiative in favor of Goya soon emerged, which gathered more than $140,000 to buy the food produced by the company and donate it to shelters, in addition to the support of many other people, in rejection of the boycott proposed by Ocasio-Cortez.
Peek, in turn, recalled that Goya donated tons of food to needy families in New York affected by the CCP Virus [COVID-19] and employs some 4,000 people in the area, while she questions whether Ocasio-Cortez would have made similar contributions to her constituents.
Another expression of rejection of the attacks on American culture by the leftist BLM movement is a letter backed by 153 prominent intellectuals and published by Harper’s Magazine denouncing today’s “intolerant climate” and the “fashion of public shame and ostracism.”
Statistics indicate that while 54 percent of Republicans and right-wing independents considered racial discrimination a “big” problem for the United States, the percentage dropped to only 40 percent shortly thereafter
Similarly, about 40 percent of Republicans justified the “underlying anger of the protesters” after Floyd’s murder, but only 18 percent thought the same in less than a month.
The same slogans and projects of former vice president and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden are experiencing a sharp decline among Americans.
Two recent polls—by Reuters/Ipsos and Hill-Harris—”show that the gap is narrowing in the last four weeks as a reaction against the leftist mafia grows. Who is surprised? Most Americans support their cops and want safe streets,” Peek noted.
“They are also proud of their country and disagree with Biden’s claim that we are a ‘deeply racist’ nation. Americans recognize our country’s faults but also celebrate its virtues and its history,” added author, Peek.
African American civil rights attorney Leo Terrell is vehemently critical of the BLM movement and its growing influence in the Democratic Party, to the extent that he wants Trump to stay on for four more years at the helm.
“The Black Lives Matter organization doesn’t care about all the lives of black people. … They don’t care about the police officers who get killed. They don’t care about black-on-black crimes,” Terrell said July 10, repudiating this destructive activism.
