“What bothers me more than anything else is they are trying to be legitimized and be considered a social justice organization.”

After a summer of riots, looting and destruction, Black Lives Matter was nominated for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize. 

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

Civil rights attorney and Fox News contributor Leo Terrell appeared on Hannity Monday with reaction. 

“A marxist organization is trying to be legitimized by getting a Nobel Peace Prize? Do we forget what happened last year? A billion dollars of insurance claims,” he noted. 

Referencing a retired police officer who was murdered in June, Terrell said that Black Lives Matter doesn’t care about all black lives. 

“Black Lives Matter, here’s the hypocrisy of it, they don’t care about all black lives,” he said. “Remember David Dorn, the police officer that was retired and slain? Do they care about the black on black crime in Chicago? Black on black crime is ignored by Black Lives Matter.” 

“What bothers me more than anything else is they are trying to be legitimized and be considered a social justice organization,” he said. “I would never put them near Dr. King.” 

Terrell said that, as a civil rights attorney, the nomination is insulting. 

“As a civil rights attorney, I’m insulted by the fact that a socialist is trying to legitimize a marxist organization as a mainstream peaceful organization,” he urged. “It is outright insulting, Sean.” 

“Sean, 99 percent of all officers protect us. We got a small percentage, my sister is in law enforcement,” he said. “But Black Lives Matter, every civilized society has law enforcement. Black Lives Matter hates law enforcement.”

“It makes no sense to give them the Nobel Peace Prize, it’s outright insulting.”
