We have known for some time now that the left really does not possess the ability to look inward at itself to see themselves as they truly are. They portray themselves as saviors of the disadvantaged, but only do so through words and never through actions.
The Nobel Peace Prize is something that should be given for true accomplishments, not like the time they gave it to Al Gore as sympathy for not being elected president. And they gave it to Obama for what?? Literally just for being Obama.
Now we hear that BLM, a domestic terror group that relies on violence and intimidation to get its way, has been nominated for the peace prize. If they win, it will prove once and for all that it is worth nothing.
On Friday, Norwegian Member of Parliament Petter Eide announced that he had nominated BLM for the 2021 prize. He said that “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,” and that “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.”
Now this would be all fine and good if they hadn’t been working for months with ANTIFA to riot throughout the country. Of course Eide, a left wing politician, immediately blamed all of the rioting and damage not where he should, but went right to the favorite of progressives, the right. He cites quite comically that 93% of BLM protests were peaceful. Really? I am pretty sure that the video from all of the cities that saw riots might disagree with him. Along with that will come the leftist apologists who will conveniently ignore the almost 2 billion dollars worth of damage that occurred as a result of the riots. And this is just insurance claims, that number doesn’t include numbers from businesses that were under insured or not insured at all.
The fact that all we have seen for months is BLM rioting and getting into the faces of innocent people calling them racist and forcing them succumb to their stupidity is absolutely mind numbing. To award a group like this a “peace prize” would be a travesty and would put Nobel Committee in the same category as our media. Useless. We could never take anything that they do seriously ever again. They have proven time and again that they have no desire to work together with anyone to make change, they want it their way or no way.
The inability for these groups to be able to look at what they have done to towns and cities across the nation would indeed be laughable if it wasn’t so sad. They have taken what could have truly been a decent movement and have forever tainted it with the stench of their own bias against white people and the police.
Graeme Wood, a writer for the Atlantic actually had a good idea when discussing Trump’s nomination. He said that “Giving the peace prize to no one at all is a tradition the Nobel committee should revive, perhaps on a permanent basis. The record of achievement of the peace laureates is so spotty, and the rationales for their awards so eclectic, that the committee should take a long break to consider whether peace is a category coherent enough to be worth recognizing.” I agree with him 100% and it should apply to BLM as well.
Unfortunately, in its infinite wisdom, the committee will virtue signal its agreement with this violent group and award it to them as they did to Obama and Gore.
And I can reasonably predict that that BLM, in conjunction with ANTIFA, will continue to riot and hold those who disagree with them as ideological hostages in their ideological wasteland.
Who among you can sit there and say with a straight face that the methods BLM employ are peaceful and without animosity? If you can, I might suggest an honest review of the last year. As Warner Wolf, a famous NY sportscaster used to say, “let’s go to the videotape.” The video doesn’t lie.
