4 in 10 Republicans say political violence may be necessary: Survey

A new survey by the American Empire Institute has found that nearly 30 percent of respondents, including 39 percent of Republicans, agreed that ’if elected leaders will not protect America, the people must do it themselves, even if it requires violent actions.’ Daniel Cox, director of the AEI Survey Center on American Life described the result as being ’a really dramatic finding.’

Here be the relevant bit. "In the new survey by the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), 39 percent of GOP voters said they agreed with this statement: "If elected leaders will not protect America, the people must do it themselves, even if it requires violent actions." Personally, I find it all a bit amusing as they are scare mongering about Republican voters thinking violence might be needed to 'protect America', yet I would bet good money that a higher proportion of Democratic voters, than their Republican counterparts, actually engaged in political violence this past year.

Neat. Now tell us what percentage of Democrats think political violence is justified. It's been a year of the radicalized left being violent almost daily. Why this article? Weak.

Actions matter more than thoughts. Violent BLM protesters caused damages worth billions of dollars. And countless lives were lost. And they also spread the "coof".

The cure to 1984 is 1776. Throughout history you can push white ppl so far till we fight back and we always come out on top. So socialist/communist be careful.

Good. It's scary that it's only forty percent, but I guess most people are cowards.
