In a shocking announcement that has angered many conservatives, the Black Lives Matter movement – a movement that many believe has brought violence to America’s streets – has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
“The Black Lives Matter movement, which fueled several violent protests across America last year, has been nominated for the 2021 Nobel peace prize,” according to Breitbart.
“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.’…
“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.”
