Petition Calls for White House to Recognize BLM as Terrorist Group, an Insult to Millions of Black People Who Suffered Under Domestic Terrorism

A petition calling for the U.S. Department of Defense to designate Black Lives Matter a terrorist organization has been signed by over 23,000 people Friday evening.

The appeal was created on July 6, one day ahead of the sniper shootings that killed five officers and injured seven others in downtown Dallas Thursday night. The number of signatures has grown exponentially in the hours since.

“Black Lives Matter has earned this title due to its actions in Ferguson, Baltimore, and even at a Bernie Sanders rally, as well as all over the United States and Canada,” the whitehouse.gov petition posted by an individual known simply as Y.S. reads. “It is time for the pentagon to be consistent in its actions – and just as they rightfully declared ISIS a terror group, they must declare Black Lives Matter a terror group – on the grounds of principle, integrity, morality, and safety.”

The FBI defines terrorism as “the unlawful use of force or violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof in furtherance of political or social objectives.”

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) referenced in the petition, has tortured, enslaved, beheaded, bombed countless innocents in the name of Sharia law, a strict Islamic code used by extremists to sanction mass killings and other acts of terror against non Muslims or non-compliant adherents of the faith.

The Black Lives Matter movement, co-founded by Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors and Opal Tometi following George Zimmerman’s acquittal for the 2012 death of Trayvon Martin, began as a hashtag to affirm the humanity of a group of Americans whose lives they saw as “systematically and intentionally targeted for demise.”

Citizens invoking the name of the movement began to mobilize, forming chapters in cities rocked by the deaths of African Americans at the hands of police. In Ferguson, Staten Island, and Baltimore, the overwhelming majority of demonstrators assembled in peaceful protest, yet the small segments of violent, destructive dissenters become inextricably linked to the organization.

The pattern appears to be happening in Dallas, where police have identified ex-Army reservist Micah Xavier Johnson as seemingly the lone gunman responsible for the carnage. Dallas police chief David Brown said Johnson told negotiators during the standoff that he “was not affiliated with any groups” and that “he did this alone”. Multiple news organizations have cited law enforcement sources as saying Johnson had no criminal record nor any direct ties to any terror organizations or political groups, including Black Lives Matter.

 

Which begs the question, why doesn’t African American Micah Johnson get the same lone wolf label as Charleston shooter Dylann Roof? Why the need to link the thoughts and actions of individual Black Americans to a larger group?

BLM representatives condemned Thursday’s shootings in a message titled, “The Black Lives Matter Network advocates for dignity, justice, and respect”, published to the official website Friday.

“In the last few days, this country witnessed the recorded murders of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile at the hands of police, the latest victims in this country’s failed policing system. As we have done for decades, we marched and protested to highlight the urgent need to transform policing in America, to call for justice, transparency and accountability, and to demand that Black Lives Matter.

In Dallas, many gathered to do the same, joining in a day of action with friends, family, and co-workers. Their efforts were cut short when a lone gunman targeted and attacked 11 police officers, killing five. This is a tragedy—both for those who have been impacted by yesterday’s attack and for our democracy. There are some who would use these events to stifle a movement for change and quicken the demise of a vibrant discourse on the human rights of Black Americans. We should reject all of this.

Black activists have raised the call for an end to violence, not an escalation of it. Yesterday’s attack was the result of the actions of a lone gunman. To assign the actions of one person to an entire movement is dangerous and irresponsible. We continue our efforts to bring about a better world for all of us.”

The petition has until August 5, 2016, to obtain 100,000 signatures – the number that elicits a response from White House officials.

Original Post

Why does everyone in America have to own a weapon of death to continue the lives our parents gave us? It's damn near impossible to stay in this country. Is that the goal of you ex-European Cave Things??? Why didn't you guys just stay the hell in Europe. All of you should have migrated to ICELAND. White, cold, water just fine for your fuckin' Polar Bear Club. What a hateful bunch of straight haired, pink faced, Kind of Men (what kind, no one knows) you all are. 

Right now there's some black man in this country laughing with his family or friends, that'll be buried in his grave next week or week after next. Bullet, compliments of someone.  Dressed In a blue uniform; maybe not. His death will be all over the news; we'll all know his name. Hopefully, it won't be in my family or yours.

  Seems like the ONLY way without VIOLENCE.  Cuz the violence i.e. deaths will continue if there is something FEDERALLY MANDATED done.  Which is sad cuz this is OUR country and shouldn't have to have this for POLICE and KLANS to stop killing us.  They should be seen as they are:  MURDERERS!  And murderers go to prison.  So.  We'll see what this will do...if anything.  Black people ARE TIRED of being targeted since setting FOOT on this land.  Let's talk real history shall we?  Then we KNOW exactly WHO is AGAINST WHOM....and for what reason.  But!

We must have a petition to  recognize that extremist white supremacy groups are a real and present danger to the United States. They fall into the domestic terrorist category. Immoral politicians won't  name or address this demographic.  Much of the problem is with these less affluent white folks. Viral racism  is now in everyone's face How will governments best address this problem?  The problem needs to be named, recognized, and addressed in much stronger terms.

Plenty in the GOP are exceedingly willing to sacrifice principle for votes from the less-educated

Hell, "much of the problem is" that the same kind of racist troglodytes are in Congress, State Legislatures, are Governors, Mayors, Police Chiefs, Sheriffs, on City or County Counsels, are Judges, Prosecutors, and Cops.
