To use a BLM slogan, Silence is Violence. Too many people who oppose what's happening are staying silent out of paranoid fear that they, or their friends, will think them racist. It's the old guilt thing among polite society. Opposition to BLM and the protesters has nothing to do with race. In the same way that BLM's aims are no longer race related.My bold... I think that is true for a certain section of the "woke/virtue signalling" crowd, but most of the normal people have seen BLM for what it is and are totally fed up with our pathetic establishment still allowing them to flout our laws with impunity.
IMHO there will come a backlash which will be messy possibly bloody!
Break down of opinions:
Tiny section of society protesting.
Small section of supporters, the woke/virtue signallers.
Small section quiet but in support of the protesters.
Large majority opposed to the protests and overall aims of the protesters but staying silent.
Another small section voicing opposition.
Tiny section counter protesting.
Before anyone gets 'clever' I have no references or statistics to show this, it's just my belief of how British society splits on this issue.
