“War is peace / freedom is slavery [and] ignorance is strength.”
The Black separatist hate group Black Lives Matter will be given an award that will make sane people blanche. The Sydney Peace Foundation will award the hard-left group the Sydney Peace Prize.
The guardian notes that each year the Sydney Peace Foundation honors a nominee who has promoted “peace with justice”, human rights and non-violence. Past recipients include Julian Burnside, Prof Noam Chomsky and the former Irish president Mary Robinson.
They’re all hard-left for those who don’t know.
Western Australian Labor senator Pat Dodson praised the selection, Black Lives Matter as a movement that stood against “ignorance, hostility, discrimination, or racism,” he said.
Last year’s winner, Naomi Klein, a communist is thrilled. “This is an inspired, bold and urgent choice – and it’s exactly what our moment of overlapping global crises demands.”
The images of BLM damaging police cars, calling for the death of officers, and maligning white people is only part of the story says Patrisse Cullors, co-founder of BLM with Alicia Garza, and Opal Tometi.
“The complicated part of this is the question becomes: do we need police? Are police going to give us ultimate safety?” Cullors said.
“In our opinion: no, police are not going to give us safety. We’ve seen time and time again that actually what they do is provide death … In our country, police are the first responders to people with psychiatric issues, police are the first responders to drug use and overdose, police are the first responders to issues of domestic violence.
“And what we have seen time and time again, when they become the first responders, they don’t de-escalate. They actually escalate … When they become the first responders, our family members end up dying.”
The organization sees them as global voices for “nonviolence”.
Each year the organization tries to honor people who are “leading global voices that promote peace, justice and nonviolence,” the foundation explained. They chose Black Lives Matter because of the movement’s dedication to its “bold and visionary strategies,” the organization said.
“To turn a radically inclusive message into a rallying cry for millions of people requires vision, leadership, heart and courage. Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors and Opal Tometi and the many other Black Lives Matter leaders challenge us all to rethink, reimagine and reconstruct the societies we live in,” the foundation said about why they selected the Black Lives Matter movement.
Are you kidding me? They want to kill cops and white people. Their agenda is hard-left.
