(Liberty Bell) – While corporate America and the radical left has fully embraced the Black Lives Matter agenda in the wake of the death of George Floyd, it appears that regular, everyday Americans are starting to feel differently.
America has a long history of racial injustice, but it also has a long history of triumph over injustice in the form of both the Civil War and the Civil Rights Movement.
Of Americans living today of all stripes and ideological bends, the vast, vast majority believe that racism is wrong and that everyone is equal.
So when Floyd’s death went viral, the outcry was near-unanimous.
Everyone, right or left, black or white, rich or poor, all agreed that the death was horrific.
Police brutality, no matter the victim, is generally frowned upon by members of any civil society, especially our great republic where the power of the people is unmatched.
The left, however, wasn’t about to sit back and let a good opportunity go to waste.
They used Floyd’s death, something all Americans agreed upon even in the midst of unprecedented ideological division in our time, to destroy and conquer.
The phrase “black lives matter” is one that, again, the vast majority of Americans agree with.
However, as we learn more about the ideology of the group Black Lives Matter and the “peaceful protesters” who destroy and loot in their name, it appears that attitudes are cooling towards this clearly radical agenda.
According to a recent survey from Civiqs, in early June, 44 percent of Americans supported Black Lives Matter while just 34 percent opposed it.
Now, however, after a harrowing month and a half of entirely unjust violence and hateful rhetoric, just 41 percent of Americans support Black Lives Matter while a much higher 44 percent oppose.
“This is a return to normalcy more than anything,” noted one Twitter user at the news.
Minor white-pill: White support for Black Lives Matter has declined in recent weeks, with more white people opposing the movement than supporting it. Such was the case prior to the George Floyd riots, so this is a return to normalcy more than anything.https://t.co/1jyGhyBPlL pic.twitter.com/JojZ9S471E

Summit News notes:
The flip in support has no doubt been fueled by almost two months of rioting, looting and statues being torn down across America.
Despite the public now turning against the movement, giant corporations continue to virtue signal in support of BLM, although Red Bull bucked that trend by firing two directors who had tried to pressure the company to take a pro-BLM stance.
The founders of BLM openly state that the movement is about overthrowing capitalism, the “patriarchy” and western enlightenment ideals in general.
While many leftists would support that, it seems as though the majority of Americans don’t.
