Black Lives Matter (BLM), the radical social movement organization, has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize while their street violence continues.
The organization was nominated by Petter Eide, a Norwegian member of parliament, who said the movement is “bringing forward a new consciousness and awareness about racial justice.”
Along with the award comes a $1 million prize.
Black Lives Matter organization commented on social media.
We hold the largest social movement in global history. Today, we have been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. People are waking up to our global call: for racial justice and an end to economic injustice, environmental racism, and white supremacy. We're only getting started ✊🏾 pic.twitter.com/xjestPNFzC

Most of last year, dangerous riots took place involving BLM members following the death of George Floyd.
However, Eide defended his decision saying most of BLM protests were peaceful.
ABC News WJBF reports:
“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 September, The Daily Caller provided data on the dangerous BLM riots:
The U.S. experienced 637 riots between May 26 and Sept. 12, and 91% of those riots were linked to the Black Lives Matter movement, according to the US Crisis Monitor, a joint project of the Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project and the Bridging Divides Initiative at Princeton University.

BLM is at it again.
Over the weekend, body camera video captured a nine-year-old girl in crisis being subdued with handcuffs and pepper-spray by Rochester police in New York.
Although the incident is under investigation and the officers involved were suspended, BLM protesters turned violent.

Critics of BLM commented on social media.
They want you treated like al Qaeda if you don’t support Biden. https://t.co/gxTYcdhawM

Still boggles the mind that this is quite literally a daily occurrence (BLM or Antifa) and barely anyone talks about it.
If they were conservatives, it’d be on every channel.

It it were conservatives it would be “Breaking News: Right wing agitators at it again for one year now”

Looks like a movement worthy of a nobel peace prize to me

While their street violence continues, the nomination of Black Lives Matter for the Nobel Peace Prize is outrageous and rewards criminal behavior.
