A Norwegian parliamentarian, Petter Eide, has nominated Black Lives Matter for a Nobel Peace Prize. The far-left politician, a member of the Socialist Left Party, said the nomination was in recognition of the group’s impact on raising awareness of racism worldwide. Marxists of the world, unite!
Let’s review – Black Lives Matter began in 2013 after the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the Trayvon Martin case. According to its website, “Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, Inc. is a global organization in the US, UK, and Canada, whose mission is to eradicate white supremacy and build local power to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes.” There were sporadic marches and protests from its founding until May 2020 when the death of George Floyd by a policeman in Minneapolis, Minnesota set off the Summer of Love, as the Mayor of Seattle, Jenny Durkan, dubbed it. Weekly protests and riots took place for months led by Black Live Matter. The summer months in particular were the worst months of violence and destruction in a generation. Some cities are still plagued with violent rioting in the name of social justice and civil rights.
Three black women, self-described Marxists, or as Patrisse Cullors said in 2015, “trained Marxists” founded Black Lives Matter. The co-founder was trained in Marxist-Leninist ideology by her mentor, Eric Mann, former agitator of the Weather Underground domestic terror organization.
“We are trained Marxists. We are super-versed on, sort of, ideological theories. And I think that what we really tried to do is build a movement that could be utilized by many, many black folk,” Cullors added in the interview with Jared Ball of The Real News Network.
There are chapters of Black Lives Matter across the country. There is no separation between the BLM organization and the BLM protests. The protests and marches often turn violent, resulting in riots that have destroyed businesses and even resulted in death. Apologists for BLM, however, refuse to acknowledge the violent tendencies of the movement, often using the talking point that most protests are peaceful. Petter Eide dismisses questions about the violence. He blames police for the violence, natch.
‘Of course there have been incidents, but most of them have been caused by the activities of either the police or counter-protestors,’ he said.
Eide said BLM leaders should be praised for their work in raising awareness of racism.
‘I find that one of the key challenges we have seen in America, but also in Europe and Asia, is the kind of increasing conflict based on inequality,’ Eide said in his nominating statement, obtained by The Guardian.
‘Black Lives Matter has become a very important worldwide movement to fight racial injustice.
‘They have had a tremendous achievement in raising global awareness and consciousness about racial injustice.’
“Incidents”, indeed. Eide’s history in Nobel Peace Prize nominations include activists from Russia and China. Any member of parliament or university professor can nominate a person or organization for a Nobel Peace Prize. Directors of foreign policy institutes, past recipients, and members of the Norwegian Nobel Committee can also make nominations.
Eide, 61, who has previously nominated human rights activists from Russia and China for the prize, said he appreciated how BLM ‘have been able to mobilize people from all groups of society, not just African-Americans, not just oppressed people, it has been a broad movement, in a way which has been different from their predecessors.’
His written nomination concludes: ‘Awarding the peace prize to Black Lives Matter, as the strongest global force against racial injustice, will send a powerful message that peace is founded on equality, solidarity and human rights, and that all countries must respect those basic principles.’
One stated goal of BLM is the elimination of the nuclear family.
Far worst then Arafat and Obama getting the Peace prize the Dove refuses to be any where around the Vultures The Peace Prize Commity brings Shame to the idea of a Nobel Peace prize
recall that the street trash gay terrorist obama-shit won it for doing nothing. come on-man, burglary, larceny and murder. the swill of the streets raped, pillaged, murdered, looted, burned and destroyed American cities while commicrat mayors and gov’s sanctioned their actions.
maybe its time to cancel culture the nobel prize? is this nomination for peace or violance?
He must be using liberal propaganda media a a source of information. They don’t report on the truth of the violence and terrorism promoted by BLM and their ANTIFA partners. No doubt they’ll win their prize. Why would they give it to someone who actually ACCOMPLISHED peace, even if the idiot Biden does succeed in wrecking it.
But, this is but a component of the left’s tactic of redefining what we can see with our own eyes. Remember, Obama’s economy was “booming”. The Ministry of Propaganda takes what is a terrible example of their failure and describe it as a resounding success. ANIFA can’t be fascist, even though their every act is an expression of fascism because they call themselves antifascists. They know the stupid, who are their majority, will believe it… because they are TOLD to. BLM/ANTIFA violence is ignored by the liberal media because they can’t explain why Democrats support and promote violence. Give them a “peace prize” and it all goes away! Because… peace!
Imagine being so stupid as to accept the propaganda the left is fed! Well, that’s why Velcro was invented, I guess… for people too stupid to tie their own shoes.
