Majority of Americans Believe We Should Put America First, Let Other Nations Handle Themselves

The poll found that approximately three-quarters of Republicans want to put America first.

A new poll has found that a whopping 60 percent of Americans believe that we should let the rest of the world deal with their own problems.

The Pew Research poll additionally found that 42 percent of Americans believe the US is too involved with solving the world’s problems, which is the highest percentage to say so since 2016.

The response to this question was largely partisan, however, with 62 percent of Republicans saying that our nation is doing too much globally, while only 26 percent of Democrats said the same.

“A majority of Republicans (62%) now think the U.S. does too much to help solve world problems, compared with just 8% who say it does too little and 29% who say it does the right amount. On the other hand, a plurality of Democrats (48%) say the U.S. does too little to help solve world problems, while 26% each say it does the right amount or too much,” PEW reports.

The researchers noted that the partisan divide was much less pronounced in previous years.

When asked about America’s role in international affairs, there were also strong differences along both partisan and ideological lines.

“Six-in-ten Americans say the U.S. should focus on its own problems and let other countries deal with their problems as best they can; only 39% think the U.S. should help other countries deal with their problems. However, fully 64% of liberal Democrats believe the U.S. should help other countries. This is significantly higher than the 44% registered among moderate and conservative Democrats, and nearly triple the shares of moderate and liberal Republicans and conservative Republicans who hold this view,” the survey found.

They found that approximately three-quarters of Republicans want the US to deal with its own problems, put America first, and let other countries manage as best they can.

Amid the coronavirus pandemic 66 percent of Americans also expressed an unfavorable opinion of China, the most negative rating for the country since the Center began asking the question in 2005.

Communist Hammer and Sickle Painted on North Carolina WWII Memorial

The names on the memorial “are veterans and deserve the honor, respect, and dignity.”

The Communist hammer and sickle symbol was spray painted on a North Carolina World War II Memorial over the weekend.

The memorial in the Evergreen Cemetery in Charlotte honors over 500 people from the county who died in the war.

The vandals also wrote “Glory to the day of heroism June 19, 1986,” a likely reference to the violent Communist Party of Peru.

“On June 18, 1986, the Shining Path began to protest the Peruvian government’s use of torture on its members and their movement to different prisons,” the Pittsburgh Post Gazette reported when another statue was vandalized with the same message in May. “Although the Peruvian government at first tried to negotiate with the Shining Path, the members refused, he said, and the government sent troops into the prisons the next day — bombing two facilities and executing inmates who were in the Shining Path.”

Over 200 people were killed.

“That day immediately began to be called ‘The Day of Heroism.’”

Fox News reports that a portion of the WWII monument that read, “Dedicated to the memory of the Mecklenburg heroes of World War II who made the supreme sacrifice that you might live in liberty, freedom and peace,” was also covered in yellow paint.

Air Force veteran Wayne White gathered friends to help clean the memorial after seeing that it was defaced on social media. He told Fox 17 that the names on the memorial “are veterans and deserve the honor, respect, and dignity.”

BREAKING: Portland Militants Attempting to Set Up New ‘Autonomous Zone’ After Seattle Version Overtaken By ‘Warlord’

One of the Seattle leaders has already been accused of sexual assault.

Published

Militant leftists in Portland are now attempting to set up their own “autonomous zone,” free of police, after the Seattle version was overtaken by an armed “warlord” just one day in.

One of the leaders of the Seattle version has also already been accused of sexual assault and threatened to commit suicide after admitting that they are a “serial abuser.”

The Portland militants began setting up their “autonomous zone” late Wednesday evening using barbed wire fences. Apparently, walls and fences are no longer racist.

Portland Police have been attempting to discourage the construction, but were being ignored as of 11:30 p.m. local time.

“PPB says there’s criminal activity occurring in crowd, tells nonviolent demonstrator to leave. They sound not pleased by the new fence!” Portland Mercury reporter Blair Stenvick tweeted.

In Seattle, six square blocks surrounding the abandoned Seattle Police Department East Precinct have been under the control of militant leftists for several days. Within the first 24 hours, an armed Airbnb Superhost named Raz Simone took control of security operations and has been accused of using violence in multiple livestreamed incidents. He has been accused of running the area like a “warlord.”

“While Washington is an open carry state, there is no legal right for those arms to be used intimidate community members,” Seattle Assistant Police Chief Deanna Nolette told KOMO News.

There are also allegations that Simone’s team have been extorting local businesses in the area, demanding $500 protection fees.

“We have heard anecdotally of citizens and businesses being asked to pay a fee to operate within this area, this is crime of extortion,” Nolette said.

Simone has denied the allegations saying there’s “definitely no extortion, definitely nothing of that,” adding, “we’ve invited people to come in.”

The chaos caused by the autonomous zone has impacted how police can respond to calls in the city.

“Right now, we are on priority calls only, which means the people, city wide who need a police response are not receiving it,” Nolette said. “That to us is just not acceptable.”

The “warlord” isn’t their only problem, Nationalist Review reports that according to at least two exes and one current partner, the “trans lesbian” leader of the autonomous zone has repeatedly abused the women that they’ve been with.

One of the leader’s previous partners wrote, “I’m her ex. Even if she isn’t doing it consciously, she has done things like this on multiple occasions, including assaulting [people], and, despite acknowledging she’s in the wrong, has refused treatment. She has threatened suicide numerous times. She’s not being gaslit.”

Another former partner explained that just recently the leader had physically and sexually assaulted them, saying “You punched me in the f***ing face a few days before you shoved me off the bed for making a sh*t joke. I constantly push your hands away and tell you to stop touching my chest. One time I told you to stop and you cried and got all depressive.”

There are also reports that they are running out of food and having problems with theft, leading to them seeking more security.

A vandal has been critically injured after a group of criminals attempted to illegally topple a confederate statue in Virginia.

The vandals were trying to tear down two statues in Portsmouth, Virginia, when one of them fell directly on one of their accomplices.

“We could see that his skull was actually showing,” one witness said.

Ironically, the police were called to the scene for help by the anti-cop militants.

The vandal reportedly lost consciousness and began convulsing on the ground.

Rioters and vandals have been destroying historic statues in cities across the US in recent days. Earlier on Wednesday, a statue of Christopher Columbus was beheaded. The day before, rioters in Virginia pulled down another Columbus statue and threw it in a lake.

The lawless mobs have faced seemingly zero consequences for their actions, until Wednesday night, when the statue won.
