[What a load of crap. BLM have engaged in a lot of violence on a scale not seen in the USA in decades, yet here is this moron nominating the "peaceful" BLM movement. Petter Eide, who nominated them is, according to wikipedia someone who was in the "Socialist Left Party". So he's basically a Marxis/Communist type. And BLM have themselves stated that they are communists. I have noticed that the Nobel Prizes are filled with Jews these days, to overflowing. But if you look at the past, decades ago, Jews made up a small portion of Nobel Prize nominees. Rest assured, Jews and "fellow travellers" like Marxists, Feminists and assorted scum, will get priority in the Nobel Prizes. Do you remember the Black communist terrorist, Nelson Mandela from South Africa? He won a Nobel Peace prize. To me, the Nobel Prizes have lost all meaning. Take a serious look at it and you'll see Jews, Jews and Jew-related persons there. The whole thing has lost all value and meaning to me. It would not surprise me if BLM actually even got a Nobel Prize. That would disgust me even more, but would not surprise me one bit. Scum. Jan]
The Black Lives Matter movement, which fueled several violent protests across America last year, has been nominated for the 2021 Nobel peace prize.
The nomination was made by Petter Eide, a member of Norway’s parliament who considered the effort to be “a very important worldwide movement to fight racial injustice,” and brushed off questions regarding violent protests in the movement’s name.
“Studies have shown that most of the demonstrations organized by Black Lives Matter have been peaceful,” Eide said. “Of course there have been incidents, but most of them have been caused by the activities of either the police or counter-protestors.”
A study by the Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project, which looked at 7,750 Black Lives Matter demonstrations from four months of last year, found that 93 percent of the protests were mostly peaceful, yet photographs and videos captured by journalists across America depict a different image.
While there have been numerous violent incidents involving the movement’s name, several innocent civilians and members of Congress have suffered from the cruelties of activists from within the movement.
Last August, Black Lives Matter activists harassed diners seated on the patio of a Mexican restaurant and allegedly demanded they raise their fists. Other activists from the movement also surrounded Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and several women for several minutes on the streets of Washington, DC, as they attempted to leave a Republican National Convention event at the White House.
Last September, released data from Princeton University showed that riots associated with the Black Lives Matter movement took place in 48 out of the 50 largest cities in the United States.
The Norway-based Nobel Committee is expected to choose the winners of the award in November.
