New Poll Reveals Black Community Opposes ‘Defunding The Police’ By A 21-Point Margin

Published

If you happen to listen to the mainstream media, you’ve probably assumed, thanks to the narrative they continue to push, that the overall majority of people in the black community want to defund the police. As it turns out, that’s just more propaganda being pushed by leftist media that wants to keep folks divided.

A new poll has come out that has revealed that black people are opposed to the idea of defunding police by a rather significant margin of 20 percentage points.

Liberal activists have been calling for local communities to yank funding from law enforcement departments and pour the money into social programs, which they think will prevent crime from happening in the first place and reduce the number of encounters that black people will have with law enforcement. You can see where this thinking is headed.

However, defunding police means less police presence in minority neighborhoods who will no doubt fall victim to increased crime rates. That doesn’t really solve the problem. It creates a brand new one.

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

“Self-described liberals support defunding the police by a 13-point margin,” HuffPost reported. “But nearly every other ideological and demographic group opposes it. Democrats and Democratic leaners oppose it by a 4-percentage point margin, and Black Americans oppose it by a 20-point margin.”

Only about a quarter of black people supported defunding the police, while 49% opposed it.

In the poll, conducted Monday through Wednesday, 27% of adults expressed support for defunding the police. But when presented with a host of reforms to choose from, these proposals enjoyed vastly more support. For instance, 73% backed a ban on chokeholds, 72% approved of the creation of a federal registry that would compile complaints against police officers, and 69% supported the idea of national standards to regulate the use of force.

A lot of polling conducted in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death has revealed that people are much more open to the idea of police reform, and that’s honestly a good thing.

The coronavirus lockdowns, in which many police officers participated in stripping Christians of their right to attend worship services, along with Floyd’s death, proves there’s an issue in some law enforcement departments that need to desperately be addressed. How do we do that? Well, that’s what we need to discuss.

Apple Backs Down, Will Allow Parler Back on App Store

The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

Free speech is a fickle thing, and precious too.  If we’re not careful, it can be stripped away but those who hide behind the claim that a “private” company can limit your personal freedoms. Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms are almost always the culprits here, bending the algorithmic reach of those with whom they disagree. Enter Parler:  A free speech app where only the bare legal minimum of content would be moderated. The platform became incredibly popular with an astonishing swiftness, but soon faced trouble from companies who had previously aligned themselves with Facebook and Twitter’s more controlling stance. Apple, who had previously booted Parler from its App Store, has now relented to the Constitution. Apple has approved Parler’s return to the iOS app store following improvements the social media company made to better detect and moderate hate speech and incitement, according to a letter the iPhone maker sent to Congress on Monday. The decision clears the way for Parler, an app popular with conservatives including some members of the far right, to be downloaded once again on Apple devices. The letter — addressed to Sen. Mike Lee and Rep. Ken Buck and obtained by CNN — explained that since the app was removed from Apple’s platform in January for violations of its policies, Parler “has proposed updates to its app and the app’s content moderation practices.” On April 14, Apple’s app review team told Parler that its proposed changes were sufficient, the letter continued. Now, all Parler needs to do is to flip the switch. The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

WATCH: NC Man Slings Rabid Bobcat Across His Front Yard

WOW!

For many North Carolinians, neighborhood living brings with it the peace of mind that the most invasive animals you might have to deal with are squirrels who are trying to rest in your attic, or raccoons hoping to fatten up from your trash can.  The Tar Heel state has some bears, sure, but they’re not often the pestering or dangerous type like you might see in the Pacific Northwest or parts of California. But one man this week got up close and personal with a seriously frightening creature this week, after it lunged at his wife from underneath their car. A disturbing video captures the moment a rabid bobcat attacks a North Carolina woman—and the moment her husband grabs it off her and throws it through the air. Kristi and Happy Wade of Burgaw were walking to their SUV to take their cat to the vet the morning of April 9 when the growling animal ran across the street and attacked, WIS-TVreports. After throwing it several feet, Happy Wade eventually shot it after it ran into the couple’s garage and then continued to charge, ABC 11 reports. A neighbor who had been jogging by at the time stopped to help and called 911. Video of the incident is simply unbelievable. https://twitter.com/nojumper/status/1383145940807163904?s=20 The bobcat was injured by Wade and later euthanized by local law enforcement.  An autopsy revealed that the animal was indeed rabid, and the family has been undergoing treatment for their numerous bite wounds.
