Pennsylvania Democrat John Fetterman has reportedly removed Black Lives Matter content from his campaign website over concerns that he is seen as soft on crime.
This is an issue that is a problem for all Democrats. Crime has gone up everywhere in recent years and it’s mainly due to policies supported by Democrats. Voters are clearly tired of it.
Fetterman risks alienating needed voters by doing this, however.

John Fetterman wipes Black Lives Matter section from campaign site amid attacks over crime
Senate candidate John Fetterman, D-Pa., has removed mentions of Black Lives Matter from his campaign website in the last month, a review of archived webpages showed.
The “issues” page on Fetterman’s website currently includes sections on inflation ,criminal justice reform, legalizing cannabis, renewable energy, immigration and several other topics, but doesn’t include any section devoted to Black Lives Matter. Archived copies of the page, though, show that as recently as Aug. 22, the same page highlighted Fetterman’s commitment to Black Lives Matter.
“John served as mayor of a city that’s more than 80% Black, and has championed the idea that Black lives matter since long before it became a hashtag,” the previous version of the campaign website stated under a section titled “Black Lives Matter.”
The same line appears to have been on Fetterman’s website since February 2021, the month he announced he would run for Senate. Fetterman secured the Democratic nomination for the seat in May, setting up a showdown against Republican nominee Dr. Mehmet Oz in November.
Of course, Fetterman had no problem with the 2020 riots.

Always be wary of a politician that believes something right up until polls start getting tight.

Is there any wonder why this race is now shifting towards Oz?
