In a move certain to piss off conservatives Black Live Matter to receive national peace prize.

Courtesy of Raw Story:  

The Black Lives Matter social justice movement has been recognized with a global peace prize that in the past has highlighted the work of South African civil rights activist Desmond Tutu, renowned philosopher Noam Chomsky and former Irish President Mary Robinson. 

The Sydney Peace Foundation announced last week it was giving Black Lives Matter its 2017 peace prize during a ceremony scheduled in November for Sydney. The award recognizes the work of the founding leaders of the social justice activist network: Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza and Opal Tometi, who began working together after Florida neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman was acquitted in 2013 in the death of black teenager Trayvon Martin. 

"This is the first time that a movement and not a person has been awarded the Peace Prize—a timely choice. Climate change is escalating fast, increasing inequality and racism are feeding divisiveness, and we are in the middle of the worst refugee crisis since World War II. Yet many establishment leaders across the world stick their heads in the sand or turn their backs on justice, fairness and equality," the Sydney Peace Foundation said in announcing the award. 

Right Wing radio and Fox News have worked extra hard to identify BLM as a racist hate group, so this announcement is sure to cause a major freakout among the heavy set, lily white, personal mobility scooter crowd.

I am sure that just as soon as they have plastered some placards with misspellings, and found enough handicap parking places, they will all take to the streets to roll, amble, and stumble along to express their outrage.

    I think the Black Lives Matter movement certainly deserves the award. Thank you, Sydney.

    Yea. I'm going to donate to BLM and go march for justice. I am so proud of young americans standing up for their future. Our children will suffer if we do not remove this trump tumor and cancer from our country and world. He is the most toxic human on the planet today. He does not represent America nor is he our legitimate legal president of the united states of America. He is a fraud and liar working for himself and globe communist parties. He is a traitor and liar. He has committed unspeakable crimes against humanity. He is a scientologist and operative for delusional and fake news. He must resign or face the most brutal impeachment in world history. The people have spoken and want him to confess and leave our buildings today.

    Trump Exempts Entire Senior Staff From White House Ethics Rules

    President Donald Trump has exempted his entire senior staff from provisions of his own ethics rules to allow them to work with political and advocacy groups that support the administration....

    Three former lobbyists in the White House, and one on the vice president’s staff, have also been exempted from “revolving door” rules imposed by that executive order, allowing them to work on administration policies that might benefit former clients.

    The list provides the first official glimpse at the extent to which Trump has circumvented his own ethics rules by hiring former special interest advocates of the type that he railed against on the campaign trail....

    The West Wing’s three former lobbyists have been given wide latitude to work on a range of policy issues that might dovetail with the interests of their former clients....

    The West Wing’s three former lobbyists have been given wide latitude to work on a range of policy issues that might dovetail with the interests of their former clients....

    “We now know who was given a waiver from their WH ethics pledge,”wrote the left-leaning group Citizens for Responsibility in Washington on Twitter. “Looks like the end of the drain the swamp illusion.”.....

      I hope Americans have learned that they should NOT vote for a Republican in the next election cycle!

      They should not be reelected to the U.S. Congress should they run again. Also, suggest getting them out of office (as much as possible) on the state and local levels.

      The party is horrible. Just look at the Republican majority led Alaska Legislature. All they are doing is costing Alaskans more money - have run us into the red - lowered our ratings, will lower the PFD, etc.

      Screw their white asses! They are a joke to our state and country - just like Trump and his group!

    "“Frankly, at this point, I don’t care if it’s a woman or a man,” Kunin says. “I’d like to live long enough to see a woman president, but I think we all feel we have to change regimes.”"

    https://redux.slate.com/cover-stories/2017/05/will-we-ever-have-a-woman-as-president.html

    "For a woman to beat Trump—or Mike Pence, if Trump were forced from office—would help heal the psychic injuries of this dystopian period of macho kakistocracy. “We continue to underestimate the psychological wound of having a man become president after he said what he said about women on the Access Hollywood tape,” Tanden says. For a woman—maybe even a BLACK woman, in the case of Harris—to take Trump down would be SWEET revenge."

    2. Kamala Harris is of Indian decent, not African, but okay. I think 2020 is too soon but I would certainly support her candidacy.
