Could anything more perfectly indicate the ideas that divide right and left than who we have seen nominated as Peace Prize recipients for 2021?
On five different occasions, people from various places around the world have nominated President Donald J. Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Not only did he have a much different war record than his various predecessors (started ZERO new wars), but he also ended the ‘Caliphate’ that ISIS claimed for their own border, he found non-violent (generally economic) ways to pressure wayward nations, he made honest attempts to resolve the conflict with the hermit nation of North Korea.
Oh, and there was also that small matter of several peace treaties negotiated between Israel and its Arab neighbors — something many of us NEVER expected to see happen in our lifetime.
He managed to swing that in a SINGLE term in office.
But the American media is trying to paint him as a ‘burn it down’ kind of President, a threat to peace, supposedly inciting a mob by telling them to march ‘patriotically and peacefully’ to let their elected politicians hear their voices.
Meanwhile, another group was ALSO nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. In the left’s eyes, these guys are the real heroes.
Petter Eide, the Norwegian parliamentarian who nominated BLM, dismissed questions about violence carried out in the movement’s name.
‘Of course there have been incidents, but most of them have been caused by the activities of either the police or counter-protestors,’ he said.
…Eide, 61, who has previously nominated human rights activists from Russia and China for the prize, said he appreciated how BLM ‘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.’
His written nomination concludes: ‘Awarding the peace prize to Black Lives Matter, as the strongest global force against racial injustice, will send a powerful message that peace is founded on equality, solidarity and human rights, and that all countries must respect those basic principles.’ –DailyMail
Their leaders have acknowledged being trained as Marxists and have a very specific agenda. This chick was licking her chops at the opportunity to use a Pandemic to destroy the economy and erect socialism in it’s place:
Dr. Melina Abdullah, a co-founder of BLM’s L.A. chapter, said it is time for “those who’ve been thinking about what the collapse of capitalism could do” to spring into action, “just as crises are used by oppressive regimes to usher in their visions.”
…During her weekly “Beautiful Struggle” radio show broadcast Tuesday night on KPFK FM, Abdullah encouraged BLM allies “to sharpen our organizing tools.” She was joined by Rosa Clemente, an early member of Black Lives Matter, who has been discussing coronavirus strategies with other black liberation activists throughout the nation. Clemente said the current public health emergency presents “a prime opportunity to not only reimagine what this world can look like but to make that vision a reality.”
“We are in the whirlwind of capitalism collapsing, particularly here in the United States,” Clemente, a former Green Party vice presidential candidate, told Abdullah. “Everything we’ve been saying this country could do, they’re actually doing it now. Now y’all like socialism, right? Because it’s definitely knocking at your door.” –DailyWire
They also caught a lot of flack for wanting to nuke the nuclear family.
Their various marches had a curious tendency of leaving a swath of fires, looting, broken windows, and injured police in their wake. Some have put the body count of their ‘mostly peaceful’ marches somewhere around 30 people thus far.
They also held the White House under siege, with fifty or more law enforcement officers injured on the day President Trump was escorted into a secure location within the White House.
We are assured by our betters in the media that this movement — despite the wounded police, the deaths, the property damage and the insurgence in Chaz/Chop — is best described as ‘mostly peaceful’.
Are you buying it? Between the two, who would YOU pick to receive the Peace Prize?
