The Democrat Party is afraid of Black Lives Matter (BLM) and is frightened over the prospect of alienating them. Corporations opt to profit by acting politically correct. Biden opts to say nothing and hide in his basement.
According to a June 20th, 2020 Pew Research article, about six-in-ten U.S. adults say some people are taking advantage of the protests and rioting situations to engage in criminal behavior. There are wide partisan gaps in these views. While roughly eight-in-ten Republicans and those who lean Republican say people taking advantage to engage in criminal conduct has been a significant factor, only about four-in-ten Democrats and Democratic leaners agree.
Democrats are much more likely than Republicans to say protesters have been motivated by longstanding concerns about the treatment of black people.
A large percentage of Americans believe that BLM has high-jacked the Democrat party creating scenarios where the politicians fear saying anything that could bring down the wrath of BLM activists.
Still, others contend that BLM consists of profiteers (like Al Sharpton) who operate in the form of an organized mob.
BLM has raised over $500 million in recent months. Money has poured in from corporations eager to give and show in their ads how politically correct they are. By doing so, their profits increase. Still, others use their platforms and censoring powers (Twitter, Google, Bing, Facebook, etc.) to suppress BLM critics’ views.
Some companies are refusing to place ads on Facebook to demonstrate their racial sensitivity. Marketers tell them political correctness equals profits.
In a general sense, companies are displaying ads that either directly or indirectly support the movement. Xfinity (Comcast) has bent over backward to feature the BLM movement in its programming. They do so to increase their profits.
Professional athletes are blindly and pathetically joining the fray as they apologize to the mob for their past transgressions (Drew Brees, Brett Favre). But they should know, you can’t appease a mob.
Democratic politicians, including Joe Biden, refuse to criticize BLM, even as historical statues and buildings are destroyed—it is if they are trembling in fear. As one of the state leaders of BLM has essentially said, obey us, or we will burn the system down. Although this same person attached blame to both parties. Biden hides deeper in his basement.
