Black Lives Matter Movement Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize
You read that correctly. I assure you this is not a satire piece from the Babylon Bee… except it was… last year.
In August of last year, the Babylon Bee published a prophetic article titled, “BLM Rioters Awarded Nobel Peace Prize.” It was hilarious. We laughed. How absurd! Obviously, it was too absurd to be taken seriously.
Except now it’s come true. For real. No joke.
And it’s no longer funny.
The Black Lives Matter movement, which is quite literally responsible for dozens of deaths and billions in property damage, has been nominated for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize.
It really can’t be funny anymore once it becomes true.
The Black Lives Matter movement was nominated by Norwegian MP Petter Eide, who credits the movement with forcing countries outside of the United States to address racism within their own societies. Or something.
“I find that one of the key challenges we have seen in America, but also in Europe and Asia, is the kind of increasing conflict based on inequality,” Eide said. “Black Lives Matter has become a very important worldwide movement to fight racial injustice. They have had a tremendous achievement in raising global awareness and consciousness about racial injustice.”
In July, a young mother was shot and killed by BLM supporters after saying that “all lives matter.” Nevertheless, Eide, a member of the Socialist Left Party in parliament (big shocker), is impressed by the BLM movement’s ability 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.”
“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,” Eide says.
Last summer, the BLM riots were responsible for an estimated $1 – $2 billion in property damage between May 26 and June 8, 2020, and dozens of deaths, including that of retired St. Louis police officer David Dorn.
I wonder what Dorn’s widow has to say about this Nobel Peace Prize nomination for the movement that killed her husband and dozens of others.

Note from the Editor of 0censor:
I would say that any distinction the Nobel Peace Prize once held is no so tainted it no longer bears much relevance. After giving Arafat and Obama peace prizes, one was a terrorist; the other was given one for not any deeds he had done, rather that he said he would, quickly tarnished this prize.
It was further tarnished by refusing to acknowledge that Trump had done more to bring about peace in the Middle East than Carter (who won a peace prize) and all the presidents from Eisenhower. It was political that Trump was ignored.
Now they want to give a prize to the domestic terrorist group Black Lives Matter? Why not include ISIS, or maybe Al Qaeda, Hamas, Hezbollah with this, it makes as much sense as offering one to Black Lives Matter.
