After a summer of riots, protests and destruction, Black Lives Matter has been nominated for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize. 

This is not a joke. 

Norwegian politician Petter Eide nominated the organization for its ability to raise “global awareness and consciousness about racial injustice.” 

Eide said that his decision was motivated by the diversity of people who latched onto the organization’s racial warnings regarding “conflict based on inequality.” 

“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 said. 

While Black Lives Matter gained explosive media attention this summer, the organization is not new. Their notoriety first came about in 2014 surrounding the death of Eric Garner, then they became the center of media attention again in 2020 with the death of Gorge Floyd. 

But this time, it wasn’t all good press. 

Critics of the nomination point to the over $1 billion in insurance claims filed by businesses following the riots that ensued over the summer. In several major cities around the country, businesses were looted – and even burned to the ground – as law enforcement struggled to contain the violence. 

Indeed, a decent majority of BLM protests turned violent. But Eide says that’s simply a misrepresentation. 

“Studies have shown that most of the demonstrations organized by Black Lives Matter have been peaceful,” he said. “Of course there have been incidents, but most of them have been caused by the activities of either the police or counter-protestors.” 

I’d like to see those studies. 

Eide concluded the nomination by claiming BLM is “the strongest global force against racial injustice,” the Washington Times reports. 

What an egregious insult to individuals like Martin Luther King Jr., who were actually focused on ensuring peace while getting their message across.
