A petition asking that the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement be labeled a terrorist organization has been formally posted at the White House site, We the People is picking up steam since the deadly shooting in Dallas in which five police officers were assassinated by Micah Xavier Johnson.
Posted a day before the Dallas massacre, the petition had nearly 70,000 signatures as of July 10th, four days after the senseless violence. 100,000 signatures are need by August 5th to require an official response from the President.
The petition notes that terrorism is by definition, “the use of violence and intimidation in pursuit of political aims”. It also points out that this is the same definition used to declare ISIS and other such groups as terrorist organizations.
In spite of protests to the contrary, Black Lives Matter has earned a reputation as being a terrorist organization. Official leaders of the movement have called for violence in Baltimore and Ferguson, at rallies supporting Donald Trump and even Bernie Sanders.
As the petition states, it is time for the Federal Government to be consistent in its handling of organizations like Black Lives Matter. Ironically, the officers who were killed in Dallas, were targets because they were protecting BLM protesters.
The dead included 43-year-old Brent Thompson of the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (Dart) team. A Dart spokesperson said: “As you can imagine, our hearts are broken. This is something that touches every part of our organization. We are grateful to report the three other Dart police officers shot during the protest are expected to recover from their injuries.”
If there is any doubt BLM leadership fit the description of terrorist consider the following tweet sent out by Tef Poe, one of their spokesmen. The day after the shootings Poe tweeted, “Dear White People, if Trump wins young niggas such as myself are fully hell bent on inciting riots everywhere we go. Just so you know.”
One week previous to the Dallas shootings, a North Carolina radio station reported that authorities in Cumberland were considering charging Donald Trump with inciting violence at a Fayetteville rally. No such call has come from any official agency against Poe.
Whether the petition has any effect or not, BLM is already in violation of Federal law. It is illegal to protest in any area that is under the protection of the Secret Service or used for government business or official assembly.
Vladimir Lenin said, “We must be ready to employ trickery, deceit, law-breaking, withholding and concealing truth… We can and must write in a language which sows among the masses hate, revulsion, and scorn toward those who disagree with us.”
Signers of the petition seem to agree that the leaders of Black Lives Matter intend nothing less than to spread hatred and scorn for authority.
