BLM more popular than Trump

This article contains news with liberal commentary.

This was back in June, so it’s old news, but it has just come to my attention and it’s too delicious to pass up.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who’s been railing against the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement in recent days amid nationwide protests against racist police brutality, had a bad night on Monday,” June 22, 2020, TPM reported on Friday, June 26, 2020 (story here).

“Carlson opened his program with news [that] Rasmussen’s latest report … shows 62 percent of ‘likely’ U.S. voters view BLM favorably while President Donald Trump’s approval rating trails behind at 43 percent.”

“‘Here’s some bracing news we never expected to report: Black Lives Matter is now more popular than the President of the United States,’ Carlson lamented in the opening of his program. ‘And not slightly more popular than the President; much more popular.'”

“Keeping in line with his usual apocalyptic smears against BLM, the Fox host warned that the anti-racism movement is ‘working to remake the country and then to control it’ and that politicians are ‘lining up to bow before’ the movement.”

If the purpose of the BLM movement is, as one essayist wrote, “waging spiritual warfare against forces of racism, police brutality and state oppression,” that’s fine with me. America needs remaking, and not the way Trump and his followers have in mind.
