A university poll finds that Democrats are a danger to the republic as 30 million of them apparently feel that extreme violence to keep Trump from office in 2024 is justified.
The report comes out of the University of Chicago from its Chicago Project on Security & Threats. Before you wonder if that this is some right-wing thing, the University of Chicago is as left-wing as it gets, so if they are saying millions of Democrats are contemplating violence, it’s probably many more.
Per the College Fix:
The Chicago Project on Security & Threats survey findings, some of which are available at The Guardian, indicate that eighteen million, or 6.9 percent of Americans, feel violence is justified to ensure Trump does become president again.
This represents an increase of approximately six million from last April.
Of this 18 million, “68% believe that the 2020 election was stolen from Trump and 62% believe the prosecutions of Trump are intended to hurt his chances in 2024.”
U. Chicago’s Robert Pape, founding director of CPOST, said “The public is more radicalized than it was in April and it’s really quite significant. We’ve been tracking this quite a while, and this is a really big bump.”
Pape said a more “radicalized public” alone is not sufficient for actual violence. He compared the situation to a “kindling” which would need something like Trump “light[ing] the fire” as he (allegedly) did on January 6, 2021.
But what’s shown only as part of a bar graph in The Guardian is the percentage of Americans (11.6) who said violence would be ok to prevent Trump from again assuming the presidency. This equates to 30 million people, and was highlighted on this Sunday’s CBS’s “Face the Nation” on which Pape was a guest.
30 million say “use of force” justified to prevent another Trump presidency, compared to 18 million who say same about restoring Trump presidency, per @ProfessorPape on @FaceTheNation. pic.twitter.com/KBHZO9cNsd

There really is no surprise. The truth is, liberals are all more dangerous than real Americans. Always have been.
Most political violence ever perpetrated in the U.S. has been committed by the left.Commentary
