Thank God it's Friday, because the level of ridiculousness combined with hilarity is almost too much for a regular day of the week. Is everyone ready for this one?
The Marxist Black Lives Matter organization...has been nominated...for the Nobel Peace Prize! That's not a joke either. It's not April Fools Day, not a funny greeting card and definitely not some crappy "woke" stand-up routine on Netflix.
According to The Guardian:
The Black Lives Matter movement has been nominated for the 2021 Nobel peace prize for the way its call for systemic change has spread around the world. In his nomination papers, Norwegian MP Petter Eide said the movement had forced countries outside the US to grapple with racism within their own societies.
"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," said Eide. "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."
Ah, so it's a globalist thing. Got it. Just par-for-the-course for the far-left, it seems.
I'm aware that Eide, who is a member of the Socialist Left Party in Norway, doesn't live in the U.S., but the internet still does exist in Norway - I'm assuming. Eide must not have been paying attention last summer and fall when BLM, along with the communists in Antifa, rioted and looted cities across the U.S. en masse. And you know how I know those riots exist, because when you Google "BLM riots," one of the first results that Google gives you is the Wikipedia page for the "George Floyd protests."
The Nobel Peace Prize has been a joke for years. Think the Academy Awards, but for the non-Hollywood elite.
Just thought all of you might like a laugh ahead of your weekend. You're welcome!
Oh, in case you were wondering just how peaceful BLM was in 2020, here ya go:
