64% say January 6 breach being used to suppress legitimate movements.
Summit News reports:
A new Harvard/Harris poll has found that Americans are more concerned over the violence that happened last summer in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd than the Capitol riot on January 6.
Although the media has consistently tried to fan the flames of hysteria over the Capitol breach, which led to the deaths of four Trump supporters and one police officer, the survey reveals that Americans are more unsettled over the months-long riots across major cities that were responsible for at least 19 deaths
Asked, “Which do you find more concerning – the violence in American cities during the summer or the riots at the Capitol on January 6th?” 55 per cent of respondents said they were more perturbed by violence in the cities compared to 45 per cent who said the January 6 riot.
When asked if the January 6 riot was “being used by politicians to suppress legitimate political movements or do you think there is no such suppression of legitimate movements?” 64 percent said yes compared to 36 percent who said no.
In addition, 71 percent polled said they thought Antifa, which was involved in much of the violent rioting, was a “domestic terrorist group” while 29 said it wasn’t. This compares to 66 percent who think the Proud Boys are a domestic terrorist group and 36 percent who don’t.
Although the media has framed the George Floyd riots as “mostly peaceful” protests, they caused 1-2 billion in property damage and led to 14,000 arrests.
The 19 death toll number is almost certainly higher since official sources seemingly stopped counting the total after June 8th.
