An online petition was created by anti-Black Lives Matter citizens who don’t like the organization in the wake of recent police officer deaths in Dallas. Finally, someone is speaking up against their hateful and violent behavior.
The petition has gone viral, calling for the federal government to officially label the Black Lives Matter organization as a terrorist organization. It has certainly earned that title. The petition cites the disruption to American life that the group has created. They referenced its, “use of violence and intimidation in pursuit of political aims.”
“Black Lives Matter has earned this title due to its actions in Ferguson, Baltimore, and even at a (Vermont Sen.) Bernie Sanders rally, as well as all over the United States and Canada,” the petition read.
As of yesterday afternoon the petition had received 47,500 signatures in approximately three days. By August 5th, it must have received 100,000 signatures in order to be officially considered by the White House. But knowing the President, it could have 1,000,000 signatures and he still wouldn’t do anything about it.
Despite the fact Black Lives Matter condemned the police shootings it was their members who committed these terrible atrocities. Many Americans feel their hateful and vindictive rhetoric is what led to the shootings of these officers.
Clearly this group encourages violence over peace and have no interest in quelling the violence until everyone else, specifically the government and the police, bows to their demands. But as a rule of thumb, the United States of America doesn’t negotiate with terrorists. They have probably forgotten that.
Regardless of the attention the petition receives it is highly unlikely the Obama administration or his crony federal agencies will take any action on the petition.
Especially considering he gave the eulogy at the funeral of an African-American killed by police.
