BREAKING: Six year old boy killed and his mum injured in attack by their 71-year old landlord in ?? Illinois, who according to the Sheriff's office was motivated by their 'being Muslim and the ongoing Middle Eastern conflict involving Hamas and the Israelis'.— The Spectator Index (@spectatorindex) October 15, 2023
Elderly people whipped up into a frenzy by atrocity propaganda on cable television are getting violent.
This is what you call burying the lede.
The American public expresses deep sympathy for the Israeli people and broadly sees the Israeli government’s military response to Hamas’ attacks as justified, according to a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS, and two-thirds are at least somewhat worried the fighting between Israel and Hamas could lead to terrorism in the US. The poll also finds divisions by party and age in how Americans view the conflict and the US response to it. …
Half of Americans (50%) say that the Israeli government’s military response to the Hamas attacks is fully justified, another 20% say it’s partially justified and just 8% that it is not at all justified, with 21% unsure. Republicans are far more likely than independents or Democrats to say the response is fully justified (68% of Republicans say so compared with 45% of independents and 38% of Democrats), and older Americans are also much likelier than younger ones to say it is completely justified (81% of those age 65 or older see the response as fully justified, compared with 56% of 50-to-64-year-olds, 44% of 35-to-49-year-olds and 27% of 18-to-34-year-olds). Majorities across age and party, though, say the Israeli response is at least partially justified, with very few Americans of any age or party affiliation saying the response is not at all justified …
81% of Americans over 65 are Standing With Israel.
Just 27% of Americans under 34 are Standing With Israel.
Keep in mind that this is the peak of the news cycle when the memory of the surprise Hamas attack on Israel is going to be the most salient in the public mind. Nearly 3/4ths of young people who would be called on to fight in a major war in the Middle East over Israel … DO NOT CARE.
I’m going to get in trouble for saying this, but it is obvious. It is old people who watch cable and network television, who are on Facebook and who listen to Michael Savage and Mark Levin yelling on talk radio who are Standing With Israel. It is old people who are Israel First Dispensationalists. Everyone else my age or younger was raised on the internet and shaped by the Iraq War and its aftermath. Christian Zionism is a passing phase that is dying with Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson.
Zoomers are checked out. Good luck trying to get them to fight Iran. The core audience watching FOX NEWs, CNN and MSNBC is over 70.
UPDATE: It is not just one poll.
