ER Editor: We also remind readers that Norwegian MP Petter Eide has nominated BLM for the Nobel Peace Prize, which is NOT the prize they have been given in the report below. (Remember Obama getting a Nobel in 2009 after only 8 months in office? Then he went on to personally supervise extra-judicial drone strike killings every Tuesday…) See Black Lives Matter movement nominated for Nobel peace prize from The Guardian.
Eide has been roundly criticized for this given the entirely reasonable charge that BLM are not at all peaceful (from ABC News):
“This weekend I have received so many negative responses from individual Americans telling me that Black Lives Matter is a violent and aggressive organization, that they are deliberately using violence as a political communication tool and that nominating them for the Nobel Peace Prize is quite insane,” Eide said in a phone interview with ABC News.
Eide declined to elaborate on the messages he has received, but said, “They were very nasty, and some of them were also threats. They were hateful.”
Thousands of mostly peaceful protests organized by BLM have occurred across the country and the world in recent months over police-involved killings of Black people, including the death in May of George Floyd in Minneapolis. The movement has been blamed by critics, including former President Donald Trump, for vandalism, looting and assaults against police officers during confrontations that have accompanied some of the demonstrations.
Protests in cities including Seattle, Atlanta, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Portland, Oregon, have, at times, been declared riots by police as some agitators have looted, committed arson and other crimes.
See this NPR link for a visual reminder of how destructive and violent their protests turned. See also this LBRY posting for a one-minute drive around of Minneapolis streets last summer post-rioting: https://lbry.tv/@DocBrosk:5/A-SUNDAY-DRIVE-IN-MINNEAPOLIS-MN:9
Let’s remember that Patrisse Culors is a self-declared Marxist who is ‘super versed on ideological theories’. She is allowed her own channel on Youtube (see this) while so many others are getting banned. See this original Tweet by David Reaboi from June 2020 on her clear admission. Meanwhile, Alicia Garza is a member of the Young Global Leaders, where other young globalist ‘influencers’ can be found, such as Emmanuel Macron, John Kerry’s daughter (dad has been showing off his globalist credentials very stridently of late), Tulsi Gabbard, a Rothschild family member, select royalty, &etc.
We also recommend this highly informative piece we published by F. William Engdahl, titled America’s Color Revolution Led By Major Foundations Using BLM as a Front. See also this by Mike Gonzalez titled For Five Months, BLM Protestors Trashed America’s Cities. After the Election, Things May Only Get Worse.
The article below is standard-issue MSM reporting with a ‘peaceful protest’ accompanying picture.
The Establishment circles reward their own. If the Nobel Peace Prize is uncertain, grab the Olof Palme Prize.
Here is the Youtube video of the awards event. Interestingly, the way Palme’s son, who is hosting the online event, describes his father – as a ‘social democrat’ who was ‘color-blind’ – CANNOT be said about race-focused Marxists who use skin color precisely to attack others on supposedly ‘moral’ grounds. That was an old description of the Left, when it was far more moderate.
Black Lives Matter wins Swedish human rights prize
The Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation has been awarded Sweden’s Olof Palme human rights prize for 2020.
Prize organizers said in a statement on Friday that the international civil rights movement had been awarded for its work promoting “peaceful civil disobedience against police brutality and racial violence all over the world.”
The foundation has “in a unique way exposed the hardship, pain, and wrath of the African-American minority at not being valued equal to people of a different color.”
The Black Lives Matter movement was founded in the United States in 2013, after a man charged with fatally shooting African-American teenager Trayvon Martin in 2012 was acquitted.
Last year, the movement received major international attention following several cases of extreme police brutality in the US, including the death of George Floyd.
Floyd died in the northern US city of Minneapolis on May 25, 2020 after a white police officer pressed his knee on his neck for nearly 10 minutes as he continually gasped, “Please, I can’t breathe.”
His death unleashed protests against police brutality and for racial justice in the US and many countries across the world.
According to the Swedish prize organizers, an estimated 20 million people have participated in Black Lives Matter protests in the US alone, and millions more around the world.
A prize ceremony will be held online on Saturday.
The Olof Palme Prize, an annual prize worth $100,000 awarded by the Olof Palme Memorial Fund, was established in 1987 by the family of Sweden’s former Social Democratic prime minister Olof Palme and by the Social Democratic Party to honor the slain premier’s memory.
Olof Palme was an outspoken international human rights advocate and vehement opponent of US involvement in the Vietnam War. He was assassinated in Stockholm in 1986.
