Overwhelming majority of Americans perfectly ok with calling MS-13 ‘Animals’

By Robert Laurie

Sometimes I’m baffled about the things pollsters choose to examine.  I get polling policies or candidates, but stuff like this?  I’m shocked that anyone, anywhere, actually thought “hey we really need to get a read on whether people are comfortable calling roving gangs of rapists and murderers ‘animals.'”

But, that’s what they apparently thought.

As The Hill reports, a new Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll suggests that sanity has won out, and people really don’t mind it if you refer to MS-13 as a bunch of filthy animals.

A majority of Americans in a new poll believe it’s fair to characterize members of the MS-13 gang as “animals,” according to the survey taken after President Trump faced controversy for remarks during an immigration meeting.

Fifty-six percent of American adults in the Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll said referring to members of the gang as “animals” is fair, compared to 44 percent who said the characterization was unfair.

Now, I would have just assumed this.  It feels like common sense to me.  However, I suppose there might be a group of folks like Nancy Pelosi who think this sort of language “dehumanizes” rapists and murderers.  We can’t have that, right?

…Well, turns out we can:

A slimmer majority, 52 percent, added that comments that “dehumanize” members of MS-13 are acceptable.

So, sorry Dems.  It looks like your desire to side with anyone who might help you score a cheap point against Donald Trump has backfired.  Next time, you’d be wise to stay away from the animals.

Won’t someone please stand for the rapists, murderers, and drug dealers?
