Poll: Nearly Half of Men Under 50 in the Democrat Party Support Political Violence Including Assassination

A new poll conducted by the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) in April revealed that voters who identified as Democrats were more likely to support political violence, including the assassination of political opponents.

The poll released last week revealed that 44 percent of the “younger Democratic men” under the age of 50 support “assassinating a politician who is harming our country or democracy.”

More from American Military News:

Republican women under 50 were the group with the second-highest approval for assassinating politicians, with 40 percent approving of such behavior.

Republican men under 50 were the third likeliest group to support assassinating a politician, with 34 percent approving of such behavior. 32 percent of women Democrats also approved of assassinating politicians.

Across parties and gender, the percentage of people who supported assassinating politicians decreased with age. Still, the SPLC polling found nearly a quarter of all respondents approved of assassinating a politician.

Young Republican men were the group most likely to support “participating in a political revolution even if it is violent in its ends,” with 45 percent approving of such behavior, compared to 42 percent of young Democrat men. 37 percent of young women Democrats and 30 percent of young women Republicans approved of such behavior. Overall, two-thirds of respondents did not approve of participating in political revolutions “even if it is violent in its ends.” Again, support for such behavior fell with age.

Young Republican men were also the most likely to support threatening a politician who is “harming the country or our democracy,” with 46 percent approving of such behavior, compared to 40 percent of young Democrat men. 31 percent of young women Republicans and 25 percent of young women Democrats approved of such behavior. In total, only 20 percent of respondents supported threatening a politician. Younger respondents were again more likely to support such behavior.

Biden, Pelosi, Democrats, and their fake news media want you to believe the Jan. 6 protest was the most violent “insurrection” in history.

What they don’t tell you is that the protests were mostly peaceful and the protesters caused minimal damage until their government fired on them with flash grenades, tear gas, and rubber bullets without warning.

The mainstream media reported the estimated damages from the January 6 protests came out to $1.5 million.

Obviously, the damages would have been much worse if the protesters had started fires, toppled statues, ripped apart historic paintings, etc. But that did not happen on January 6. No one tagged the walls with graffiti, firebombed the halls, shot up the halls, or lit off Molotov cocktails.

And, although this will NEVER make headlines in the fake news media, the January 6 protests (insurrection) caused 1/1,000th of the damages as Black Lives Matter and Antifa radicals caused across the United States in 2020.

Black Lives Matter-Antifa mobs caused over one billion dollars in damages in cities across America since May 2020.  In Minneapolis alone, Black Lives Matter mobs damaged or destroyed over 1,500 businesses or buildings in the 2020 riots.

Over 700 police officers were injured in the BLM riots — and that was back in June 2020!

Early this week, a man arrested in the assassination attempt of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh told authorities he planned to break into Kavanaugh’s home in Maryland and kill the justice–and then kill himself.

Now, the left-wing group Ruth Sent Us is calling for more protests against Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett.

They hinted at protesting at Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s church — and at the school where she sends her kids.
