The radicalism of Black Lives Matter is beginning to rear its ugly head.
As more time has passed, people are witnessing the true intentions of the movement.
And one poll shows Black Lives Matter made a giant mistake.
The hard left has made a huge effort to conflate the benign slogan “black lives matter” with the actual movement.
The founders of the group have openly called themselves “trained Marxists,” and their website features a mission statement that includes subverting the nuclear family.
They’re radicals in every sense of the word, but the corporate press has given them a sheen of respectability and moral authority.
However, the group’s Marxist roots are bearing poisonous fruit; the group has been marred by violence over the past two months in light of George Floyd’s heinous murder.
Rioting and looting have caused immeasurable damage across the country, and at least two dozen people have lost their lives as a result of far-left activism.
And the radicalism on display is turning off Americans.
According to research, white support for Black Lives Matter is now under water after enjoying a solid majority in the immediate aftermath of Floyd’s death.
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

This is a stark change after Black Lives Matter had recently been polling higher than both major parties as well as other institutions.
It turns out that Americans don’t like endless rioting and street violence.
One leftist statistician even tried to point out that protests help Democrats electorally, but riots hurt them.
The 1968 election is one of the clearest examples.
However, that statistician was fired for offering constructive criticism to his own side.
That’s how crazy the left has become.
Thus far, many have been reluctant to criticize Black Lives Matter, but it seems discomfort for calling out the group is waning.
People are sick of the violence, even in blue states.
Rental vacancies in Manhattan are skyrocketing as a result of the political violence wrought by Black Lives Matter and the Domestic terror group Antifa.
Even worse for Black Lives Matter, many in the black community see it as an inauthentic movement using counterproductive strategies; supposedly only 1 in 6 BLM supporters is black.
An NAACP leader in Portland pejoratively called the riots a “white spectacle.”
If BLM is attempting to win over the hearts and minds of Americans, it appears they’re going in the wrong direction.
