According to a startling new survey out this past week, nearly 40% of Republicans say that political violence might be necessary. Almost 40% say that it's okay sometimes to get a little violent with the government terrifying, considering we've spent the last week dealing with an impeachment trial of a president who is on trial for inciting political violence. So again, rather terrifying, what's even more terrifying though, beyond the headline of this, uh, survey that came out is the fact that you still have two thirds. According to this new survey two-thirds of Republicans, believe that Joe Biden somehow stole the election. And that no doubt is helping to bolster that number of people who say, Hey, political violence might be necessary. Now here's the thing. We all understand that protests are a constitutionally given, right? You know, sometimes when the government does things that are wrong, it is okay to take to the streets.

It is absolutely allowed. And that is something that we should not take for granted. But there is a very clear distinction between violence against the government, which we have seen plenty of from Republicans over the last, you know, year, uh, what happened up in Michigan, where they stormed that Capitol building the storming of the Capitol on January 6th. Yes. We have seen Republicans get violent against the actual government. And on the flip side, on the democratic side, we have absolutely seen the government get physical with the liberal protestors, uh, reports out just this week. The, the old man who got knocked down by a police officer knocked his head on the concrete. Yeah. They're not going to charge him. Nevertheless, you typically do not see the left. You see lots of protests, you see looting and vandalism sure. To, uh, crimes. That really are not that intense.

Not saying I necessarily condone it, but at the same time, that's not the same as, you know, shoving an elderly man down and almost cracking his skull. Right? I think we can draw a very clear distinction between those two events, but Republicans, they're not out there saying we should be violent because we're being oppressed. They're saying we should be violent based on fraudulent information. Okay? That's the difference. These individuals feel that they have been wronged, even though they haven't been wrong. And why? Because they have been fed a steady diet of misinformation, propaganda and flat out lies by conservative media. Not just since the election, but for decades. Now, this is what a healthy diet of Fox news or Newsmax or one America. This is what that does to you. It radicalizes you against enemies that don't even exist. The real enemies really are the ones out there feeding you this propaganda BS, and they know it, but they have to keep you angry at somebody else.

Otherwise, you're going to realize that you're actually listening to them villains. That's why they do this. The real villains, the real oppressors out there are the individuals who say, no, you do not deserve a higher minimum wage. No, you do not deserve a stimulus check in the middle of a pandemic and a recession, even though tens of millions lost their jobs throughout this whole thing. They're the ones who are telling you that it's okay for the corporation you work for to not pay you over time, to bust up your union, to take away your benefits. Those people are the enemies, and they're usually the ones crying the loudest with the misinformation.
