You Can’t Make It Up: BLM Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

In an unbelievable example of real-world irony, the Black Lives Matter movement has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. Last week, Norwegian lawmaker Petter Eide tossed BLM into contention for the prize, praising the movement for addressing long-ignored issues of social justice.

“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. 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,” Eide wrote.

“They 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,” Eide continued.

Eide then invoked the “largely peaceful” defense that is so treasured by BLM’s defenders.

“Studies have shown that most of the demonstrations organized by Black Lives Matter have been peaceful,” he wrote. “Of course there have been incidents, but most of them have been caused by the activities of either the police or counter-protestors. There is actually a tradition for doing this. It’s a strong linkage between antiracism movements and peace, and a recognition that without this kind of justice, there will be no peace and stability in the society.

“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,” he concluded.

Will it?

In September, Axios reported that the BLM violence and destruction over the 2020 summer was the most expensive outburst of chaos in U.S. history.

“The vandalism and looting following the death of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis police will cost the insurance industry more than any other violent demonstrations in recent history,” they reported. “The protests that took place in 140 U.S. cities this spring were mostly peaceful, but the arson, vandalism and looting that did occur will result in at least $1 billion to $2 billion of paid insurance claims — eclipsing the record set in Los Angeles in 1992 after the acquittal of the police officers who brutalized Rodney King.”

Framing the destruction through the woes of the insurance industry is probably not the most powerful way to capture the truth of this tragedy, but the fact is that these riots caused real damage to people, businesses, and communities. Perhaps, if the cause was just, that could be excused. But the cause is “defund the police” and the justification – that black suspects are being disproportionately killed by racist cops – is patent nonsense. Far from deserving a Nobel Peace Prize, organizers of the BLM movement should be vilified and shunned by all those who actually care about the rule of law and actual racial equality.

  1. My mom really likes making time for investigations and it is obvious why. My partner and i notice all regarding the compelling medium you create simple information via your web site and welcome participation from some other people on that area plus our favorite princess is now understanding a great deal

  2. BLM is supposedly black people – the very same reason Obama got a Nobel Prize. Don’t believe it? Then what was his accomplishment to deserve that prize? The way I see it the Nobel committee needs to cranks out millions if not billions more of those prizes. .

  3. Didn’t know it could be this easy. Time to go destroy property and burn down a few buildings, intimidate and terrorize communities, harass the police and citizens, and even kill a few people. Can’t believe society is holding back So what if right is wrong and wrong is right. We have finally figured it out.

  4. One man who deserves it is President Donald Trump ! And how does blm a cult of anti-Christ rioters building burner’s cop killers qualify for anything but jail .

  5. “BLM” is a BUSINESS! It’s INCORPORATED! People didn’t “join”, they were PAID! George Soros was provided $ millions to create havoc. And FILTH took the money to riot, injure, burn and HATE-dance in some of the most vulnerable cities in the U.S. It was and IS a Globalist operation to get President Trump out of office. It didn’t work! That’s why the Globalists had to get the SARSCoronaVirus-19 spread especially in the U.S. President Trump was kicking their pedophilic asses. And there were actually Americans who voted AGAINST him. How stupid can one American BE? Well, stupid Trump-haters: watch as your free and growing country gets flushed down the Biden.

  6. MALWAREBYTES IS BLOCKING YOUR SITE ON MY COMPUTER. THE REASON IS BY REPUTATION. I GOOGLE THIS AND IT SEEMS MALWARBYTES IS DOING JUST THAT. IF THIS KEEPS UP I WILL SPEAKS WITH MY DOLLARS AND HIRE ANOTHER SERVICE. I’VE ALREADY GOTTEN RID OF FACEBOOK, TWITTER AND INSTAGRAM AND AM GOING TO START USING PARLER. MEANWHILE KEEP SENDING YOUR NEWS I’LL BYPASS ANY BLOCKAGE. THANKS, MIKE

  7. BS! Total disgrace! Sham!
    “The president of Greater New York Black Lives Matter said that if the movement fails to achieve meaningful change during nationwide protests over George Floyd’s killing by Minneapolis police officers, it will “burn down this system.”

    “If this country doesn’t give us what we want, then we will burn down this system and replace it. All right? And I could be speaking figuratively. I could be speaking literally. It’s a matter of interpretation”!
    This movement had nothing but destruction, riots, burning of people’s property and businesses, killings, not of which was peaceful protest

  8. Should the BLM receive this award it will forever destroy the name Nobel and all of the good that the prize has meant. This organization (BLM) if you can call it that has done nothing but DESTROY and STEAL that in no way meets the criteria of an organization contributing to PEACE or the betterment of man.

    They steal from them selves and do nothing for people of color. In most areas they have made it unsafe for the elderly to go to the Grocery Store.

  9. I believe that BLM should be considered for this prize, after all, they showed no predigest during their riots, they burned down and looted Black-Owned Businesses right along with the White-Owned Businesses.
