Initial reports of the damages inflicted on Kenosha, Wisconsin by last month’s Black Lives Matter riots indicate that more than $50 million of property damage occurred during the events. The Wall Street Journal has reports that the damages were assessed

The hardest-hit business from the mass criminal activity was a car dealership, where rioters attacked and burned dozens of cars displayed for sale in a lot. Rows of vehicles were burned and destroyed by criminal rioters.

The Danish Brotherhood Lodge, a community organization commemorating the Scandinavian heritage of many inhabitants of Wisconsin and the Kenosha heritage, was also curiously targeted by the rioters. The Lodge was entirely destroyed, with members of the organization combing through the rubble hoping to find documents and items that hadn’t been destroyed.

The riots were sparked after the shooting of Jacob Blake, a sexual assault fugitive who resisted arrest with a knife when Kenosha police sought to apprehend him. Blake was shot four times on camera, and the local community rose up in riots almost immediately in response.

The damages to Kenosha appear to have occurred in a swift fashion, approaching the damages done in Minneapolis in a far shorter timeframe. The destruction largely came to an end after a shooting incident in which two rioters were killed by 17-year old militia member Kyle Rittenhouse, who maintains that he was acting in self defense.

Minneapolis has already begun a lobbying campaign, seeking more than $50 million in bailout funds from the federal government to repair damages inflicted on the community from the Floyd riots.

POLL: Support for Black Lives Matter Protests Has PLUMMETED After Summer of Riots, Crime

Americans are turning on the riot movement.

New polling from AP and the University of Chicago indicates that support has sharply declined for the Black Lives Matter protest movement, with 15% less Americans supporting the movement now than they did in June 2020.

At the time, a majority (54%) of Americans overall supported the movement. Now, it is decisively unpopular; only 39% of Americans support the Black Lives Matter protest movement. 44% express their specific disapproval, a figure that is also presumably growing.

Curiously, even less Latinos support the riot movement than White Americans; with 31% of the former demographic expressing support for it, whereas 35% of whites do. Democrats have increasingly ignored the concerns of Hispanic Americans- many of whom live in crucial swing states such as Florida, Nevada and Arizona, instead placing emphasis on a demographic that already votes for the party in an almost universal fashion.

Support for other longstanding claims of BLM’s adherents has also tanked. The poll indicates that Americans are growing cold towards the claims of police oppression and a fundamentally racist justice system.

Overall, Americans are less likely than they were in June to say deadly force is more commonly used against a Black person than a white person, 50% vs. 61%. And fewer now say that officers who cause injury or death on the job are treated too leniently by the justice system, 52% vs. 65%.

Many Americans had been inclined to support the grievance movement following the death of home invasion convict George Floyd. But the consistent pattern of criminality and violence from its most staunch supporters appears to have worn out BLM’s welcome, and its enablers may soon pay the political price.

Liberals and progressives may have counted their chickens before they hatched. Many assumed the movement’s popularity would endure to the November election, but it now appears to have become an electoral liability at the worst possible time for the Democratic Party. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have increasingly sought to distance themselves from BLM, urging rioters to act peacefully, but the writing on the wall is clear.
