TERRELL: BLM Peace Prize Nomination is ‘outright insulting’

“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.”

National Public Radio Discontinues Reading the Declaration of Inependence

A post by Todd Starnes alerts that National Public Radio (NPR) has ditched its annual ritual of reading the Declaration of Independence. NPR, derisively referred to by Starnes as “National Public Welfare Radio,” announced the cessation of reading the Declaration. Which staffers at the taxpayer-funded radio network had been reading aloud the document since 1988.

The void that would have resulted from not reading the Declaration was not unfilled. “Instead, NPR broadcast an 11-minute conversation about whether or not the Founding Fathers actually meant the words “all men are created equal.” Here’s a link if you’d like to listen to their “screed” (which also reminds us frequently that many of the Founding Fathers owned slaves).

Starnes disclosed that he owns “KWAM, the leading news talk radio station in Memphis, Tennessee. It angers me that my tax dollars are used to prop up a broadcast competitor that spits on our Founding Fathers and our Founding Documents.”

Interestingly, NPR’s newly voiced contempt and cynicism for the Declaration of Independence does not encompass refusing taxpayer-funded government support. Whether or not the Founding Fathers meant what they said and what they wrote may be grist for energetic banter on a radio program that is increasingly committed to shrill progressive virtue signaling. However, the topic of this discussion among smug well-remunerated media activists is irrelevant. The words of the Founding Fathers have been inspirational for two hundred and forty-six years and have been the moral and legal foundation used to free the slaves and develop Constitutional principles to ensure that slavery can never be implemented in this country. Slavery currently exists in several countries now, but NPR is dedicated to ignoring that scourge.

Trump Will Not Return To Twitter Despite Elon Musk Acquisition

Published

Donald Trump

On Monday, former President Donald Trump said that he is not going to return to Twitter, which he was permanently banned from last year, after Twitter’s board of directors unanimously approved the sale of the company to Elon Musk.

Trump told Fox News that he is “not going on Twitter” and that he is instead going to be busy on his new social media platform, Truth Social.

“I am not going on Twitter, I am going to stay on TRUTH,” Trump told Fox News. “We’re taking in millions of people, and what we’re finding is that the response on TRUTH is much better than being on Twitter. Twitter has bots and fake accounts, and we are doing everything we can.”

“The bottom line is, no, I am not going back to Twitter,” Trump concluded.

As Fox News explained, “Trump was permanently suspended from Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat following the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol riot. Twitter deemed a number of his tweets connected to the violent protests as inflammatory and warned of ‘the risk of further incitement of violence.’”

On Monday, Twitter’s board of directors unanimously agreed to be acquired by Elon Musk for $54.20 per share, or approximately $44 billion.

“The two sides worked through the night to hash out a deal that would be valued at $54.20 a share, or $44 billion,” The Wall Street Journal reported. “Twitter had been expected to rebuff the offer, which Mr. Musk made April 14 without saying how he would pay for it, and put in place a so-called poison pill to block him from increasing his stake. But after [Musk] disclosed that he has $46.5 billion in financing and the stock market swooned, Twitter changed its posture and opened the door to negotiations.”

In a press release, Musk highlighted the importance of free speech and Twitter’s role as a “digital town square.”

“Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated,” Musk said. “I also want to make Twitter better than ever by enhancing the product with new features, making the algorithms open source to increase trust, defeating the spam bots, and authenticating all humans. Twitter has tremendous potential – I look forward to working with the company and the community of users to unlock it.”
