New Poll Has Some Bad News For Liberals In Love With Reparations And Health Care For Illegals

Better hand out a box of tissues.

If you happen to listen to the mainstream media on a daily basis — why you would put yourself through such torture is beyond me — they’d seemingly have you convinced that reparations and health care for illegals are the top issues that the vast majority of Americans are concerned about right now and will have some sort of impact on the 2020 election.

And if you think that, it’s time to unplug from CNN and MSNBC stat, because a new poll says that’s not at all the case.

In fact, only 27 percent of folks surveyed supported reparations, and only 33 percent favored giving taxpayer-funded health care to illegal immigrants. The vast majority of those polled also stated that decriminalizing border crossing — a position held by most Democrats running for president — is a horrible idea.

The NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll of 1,346 adults was conducted July 15-17 and has a 3.5% margin of error.

Last month, the Democrat-led House Judiciary Committee debated reparations, the first such hearing in a decade. In the Senate, Sen. Cory Booker, a 2020 candidate, introduced a reparations bill in April, saying, “This bill is a way of addressing head-on the persistence of racism, white supremacy, and implicit racial bias in our country.”

“It will bring together the best minds to study the issue and propose solutions that will finally begin to right the economic scales of past harms and make sure we are a country where all dignity and humanity is affirmed,” Booker said. “Since slavery in this country, we have had overt policies fueled by white supremacy and racism that have oppressed African-Americans economically for generations,” he said.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said reparations are a “bad idea,” and he’s totally right for a number of reasons. For starters, it’s unjust to hold innocent people accountable for the crimes of guilty people, especially when those guilty people are no longer even alive.

Secondly, reparations would be funded by tax dollars. We’re already taxed to the gills and can’t really afford much more of our daily household incomes to be drained away.

McConnell stated, “I don’t think reparations for something that happened 150 years — for whom none of us currently living are responsible — is a good idea. We’ve tried to deal with our original sin of slavery by fighting a civil war, by passing landmark civil rights legislation, by electing an African American president. I think we’re always a work in progress in this country but no one currently alive was responsible for that.”

Sen. Elizabeth Warren is a big fan of the idea, writing on Twitter:

“Slavery is a stain on America & we need to address it head on. I believe it’s time to start a national, full-blown conversation about reparations. I support the bill in the House to support a congressional panel of experts so that our nation can do what’s right & begin to heal.”

It’s important for us, as consumers of news product, to be aware that the mainstream media has given up on being objective journalists who present their audiences with facts and allow them to make up their own minds.

Now these outlets are propaganda arms that are designed to push forth the progressive agenda, making you believe the vast majority of Americans buy into what liberals are selling, when that isn’t at all the case.

Take the news with a grain of salt, folks. Or better yet, find better sources of information and factcheck often.

Save conservative media!

Flashback: Pelosi Says Trump Won’t Be President Next Year ‘One Way or Another’ [Video]

Sounds threatening…

Nearly every single Democrat from the 116th Congress will be remembered in a negative light. At the top of that list sits Speaker of the House, Nancy “I’m such a bad Catholic that I’m refused the host” Pelosi – and rightfully so. America is thriving economically, no thanks to Nancy or any Congressional Democrat. The best part is that President Trump hasn’t had to use a million executive orders to get his agenda passed, unlike his predecessor. Check out Pelosi on live TV yesterday. Talk about ridiculousness! WATCH: https://twitter.com/SteveScalise/status/1216467291900186626?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1216467291900186626&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F If you’re in America illegally, Pelosi doesn’t think you should be deported. This is how radical Democrats have become. Never forget: it’s all very strategic. Dems know that if they keep illegals in the U.S. they are likely to earn their votes, therefore keeping them in power. From Daily Wire: Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi raised eyebrows on Monday with a series of comments that she made about enforcing U.S. immigration laws. Speaking at an event in Elmhurst, New York, Pelosi attacked President Donald Trump over the raids from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers that were scheduled to happen over the weekend but were delayed after sensitive information was leaked to the public about the locations of the raids. Pelosi noted, “When I saw that the president was going to have these raids, I mean it was so appalling. It’s outside the circle of civilized human behavior to just be kicking down doors, splitting up families, and the rest of that, in addition to the injustices that are happening at the border. We have legislation to go forward to address those needs, but in terms of interior enforcement, what’s the – what’s the point?” WATCH: https://twitter.com/ArthurSchwartz/status/1143181134672650245?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1143181134672650245&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F48819%2Fpelosi-enforcing-immigration-laws-us-whats-point-ryan-saavedra 1.

ICYMI: Protester Rips MAGA Hat From Teen’s Head, Tosses It Over Wall & Cusses Him Out

Crazy times…

Liberals can be summed up with one word: triggered. Everything annoys them to no end, to the point where they feel they need to get violent. We see it happen on nearly a daily basis. Check out what went down when a teenage boy decided to wear a MAGA hat in our nation’s capitol. It didn’t go over well with a random future Joe Biden voter. WATCH: https://twitter.com/charlienicole/status/1279905108289941505?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1279905108289941505%7Ctwgr%5E&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fhorrible-trump-supporters-in-dc-accosted-and-harassed-by-blm-thug-who-stole-their-maga-hats-video%2F Criminals seemingly don’t have as bad a reputation as police officers. Without question, ex-cop Derek Chauvin was in the wrong when he placed his knee on George Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes. But why are all officers being blamed for one bad apple? It’s not right. Some cops are fed-up. From Miami Herald: The 10 members of the Hallandale Beach Police Department’s SWAT team have stepped down from their roles, citing among other grievances anger over the city’s police chief kneeling with protesters earlier this week, a memo the officers signed read. They will remain with the police department. On Friday morning, Hallandale Beach received a memo from the members of the SWAT team with a list of grievances, Hallandale Beach City Manager Greg Chavarria said. Police Chief Sonia Quiñones has set a meeting with the 10 officers on Monday to hear their concerns, collect their equipment and thank them for their service. Let’s hear your thoughts in the comment section…
