96 Percent Of Americans Expect More Civil Unrest In U.S. Cities This Summer

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

Are you ready for rioting, looting and mindless violence in major U.S. cities all summer long?  According to a brand new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll, 96 percent of all Americans believe that there will be more civil unrest in America this summer.  That leaves only 4 percent of people that believe that everything will be just fine.  In this day and age, it is virtually impossible to get 96 percent of Americans to agree on anything.  So the fact that just about everyone agrees that we are going to see more civil unrest should really tell you something.  The anger that has been building under the surface for so many years in this country has finally started to erupt.  If you have been following my website for a while, you know that this is something that I have been warning about for a very long time.  Many people may have thought that I was exaggerating when I talked about the civil unrest that was coming to American cities.  But I was not exaggerating at all.  In fact, if anything I was downplaying it.  In the years to come, we are going to see things happen in our cities that are going to absolutely shock the world.

Ever since the violence first erupted in Baltimore, what has surprised me more than anything has been the level of hate that I am seeing all over the Internet.  I am seeing white people openly proclaim how much they hate black people.  I am seeing black people openly proclaim how much they hate white people.  I am seeing things said about the police that are absolutely horrifying.  Yes, there has been a tremendous amount of police brutality in this nation.  In fact, I have been one of the leaders in writing about it.  But most police officers are just trying to serve their communities the very best that they can.  So why is there so much hate for anyone that is a police officer these days?

If all of this hate continues to grow, it is going to eat our nation alive.  Why can’t we just learn to forgive one another, love one another and work together to rebuild our once great nation?

I know that what I just said is going to mostly fall on deaf ears.  But it needs to be said.

I wish that we could change course as a nation and avoid all of the rioting, looting and senseless violence that is coming.  Unfortunately, I don’t see that happening, and neither does the rest of the country

Americans are bracing for a summer of racial disturbances around the country, such as those that have wracked Baltimore, with African Americans and whites deeply divided about why the urban violence has occurred, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll has found.

A resounding 96% of adults surveyed said it was likely there would be additional racial disturbances this summer, a signal that Americans believe Baltimore’s recent problems aren’t a local phenomenon but instead are symptomatic of broader national problems.

What happened in Ferguson set the precedent, and now what has happened in Baltimore has provided the spark for a national movement.  Similar “demonstrations” are popping up all over the nation, and a number of them have already turned violent.

For example, check out what happened in Seattle on Friday night…

Demonstrations turned violent in Seattle after night fell, with police reporting that protesters hurled rocks and wrenches at officers and damaged 25 vehicles. Police reported that an “explosive device” was thrown at officers, and a trash bin was pushed down a hill toward police.

Three officers were injured, two seriously enough that they were taken to a hospital, Seattle police said on Twitter. At least 16 people were arrested Friday night, police said.

And just down the coast in Portland, we also witnessed some very ugly violence…

    I agree with the statement that more typical “city” violence may come this summer.. but that’s just a “warm up” for what happens when the REAL crisis hits. Bank & gov’t crisis,, money (fiat) failure, debt implosion.

    Just see what happens when all the EBT, SNAP, WIC cards don’t get “re-filled”. When all the Soc-Sec payments stop, and Disability payments stop, and the water & electric grids stop?

    The big cities and all the subdivisions will become a Mad Max & Serbia death zone, filled with violence, disease, and death.

    Sorry to say it, but if you’re not living in a rural area (with COWS for neighbors), then you are gonna see some serious karrap before you die.

    I don’t believe a word that MSNBC and the Wall Street Journal put out without actually SEEING the poll construction and tabulation. They are known liars and purveyors of pro-statist, pro-corporate BS.

    Just because Wall Street wants America’s cities to burn this summer doesn’t make it inevitable. Stop pushing their BS and start demanding EVIDENCE!

    Divide And Rule, that is what is going on. These are artificial divisions being fanned and exaggerated by the powers that be. The underlying problem and real culpret here is Globalism and the off-shoring of massive numbers of US jobs. Great article about this today:

    Unity Consciousness (We are all one) is the grass roots answer to these divisions, as the author alludes to, not Duality Consciousness (I win, you lose) which is the type of thinking that is easy to manipulate.

    Now that the police have shot dead a Bundy supporter, wounded his brother and arrested Ammon Bundy in an ambush, I wonder how much higher the temperature rises as a response.
