The Obama administration is tone deaf to the cries of anyone who is not part of their political agenda. Like a husband who tunes out his wife while watching the big game, Obama tunes out his electorate who states their concern over the rhetoric of Black Lives Matter. The President chooses only to hear what he wants and cherry picks the issues that support his world view.
In response to the petition to formally recognized Black Lives Matter as a terrorist organization, his language could not have been more offensive and ineffective.
Black Lives Matter protestors have the propensity to turn a so called peaceful protest into urban terrorism, destroying property and in many cases causing bodily harm to others. Their use of intimidation and hateful rhetoric, especially toward the police, takes activism to a whole new level, one which many are calling terrorism according to a White House petition.
Thus far, the petition to ask the White House to formally recognize the Black Lives Matter movement as a terrorist entity has 125,286 signatures. It was submitted to whitehouse.gov/petition prior to the killing spree against Dallas police officers.
Terrorism is defined as “the use of violence and intimidation in pursuit of political aims”. This definition is the same definition used to declare ISIS and other groups, as terrorist organizations. 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. 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 Obama administration must now address the matter as “petitions on the White House website need to reach 100,000 signatures in order to receive an official response.”
Black Lives Matter protestors repeatedly are caught chanting “kill cops”, “pigs in a blanket” and other inflammatory statements, while destroying property and creating fear in those who do not support their anarchist agenda.
Even before the tragedy in Dallas, Texas, a petition was created and garnered well over the required 100,000 signatures seeking to have the BLM movement formally recognized as a terrorist organization.
Following the Dallas massacre, President Barack Obama held a secret meeting on Wednesday, and his company is sure to anger many Americans still mourning the deaths of police officers in Dallas, Texas.
Black Lives Matter leaders spent three hours with President Obama Wednesday to demand action in regard to recent officer involved shootings.
DeRay Mckesson, one of the group’s most prominent figures, joined several other Black Lives Matter leaders at the White House to “bring up concrete actions” the president can take in order to appease its members.
“We are at the @WhiteHouse right now for a 3-hour convening w/ President Obama re: the recent events in #BatonRouge & across the country.” [email protected]
“.@MsPackyetti + @micamaryjane are here at the @WhiteHouse convening, too. We will bring up concrete actions @POTUS can take to make impact.” [email protected]
The White House blog, which lists out the president’s schedule, makes mention of a meeting with activists and law enforcement but does not specifically mention “Black Lives Matter.”
That Obama would rather spend his time sucking up to the demagogues behind the Black Lives Matter movement than with the victims of it reveals a great deal about his allegiances and agenda.
And now, the response to the concerned citizens regarding the the petition against the urban terror group BLM, should make all who read it, sign a petition seeking to name Obama as the head of this terrorist group, since his support for it runs deep and his ideology is enmeshed with theirs.
Thanks for participating on the We the People platform.
You recently signed a petition asking the Administration to “Formally recognize Black Lives Matter as a terrorist organization.”
In the wake of the tragic recent events in Dallas, Falcon Heights, and Baton Rouge, the President brought together law enforcement officials, civil rights leaders, activists, faith leaders, academics, and state and local elected officials this week to encourage frank conversations about the steps we can take together to build trust and ensure justice for all Americans. As part of these conversations, the President directly addressed the concern that the “Black Lives Matter” slogan, social media movement, and the associated protests are somehow inherently anti-police:
“I know that there are some who have criticized even the phrase ‘black lives matter,’ as if the notion is, is that other lives don’t matter. And so you get ‘all lives matter’ or ‘blue lives matter.’ I understand the point they’re trying to make. I think it’s important for us to also understand that the phrase ‘black lives matter’ simply refers to the notion that there’s a specific vulnerability for African Americans that needs to be addressed. It’s not meant to suggest that other lives don’t matter. It’s to suggest that other folks aren’t experiencing this particular vulnerability.
“And so we shouldn’t get too caught up in this notion that somehow people who are asking for fair treatment are somehow, automatically, anti-police, are trying to only look out for black lives as opposed to others. I think we have to be careful about playing that game, just because that’s not obviously what is intended.”
This is a difficult time for our nation and this is a charged debate that stirs deep emotion. Speaking at the memorial service in Dallas earlier in the week, the President emphasized that progress requires, in part, Americans on all sides to “stand in each other’s shoes and look at the world through each other’s eyes.” He added:
“With an open heart, those protesting for change will guard against reckless language going forward, look at the model set by the five officers we mourn today, acknowledge the progress brought about by the sincere efforts of police departments like this one in Dallas, and embark on the hard but necessary work of negotiation, the pursuit of reconciliation.
“With an open heart, police departments will acknowledge that, just like the rest of us, they are not perfect; that insisting we do better to root out racial bias is not an attack on cops, but an effort to live up to our highest ideals. And I understand these protests — I see them, they can be messy. Sometimes they can be hijacked by an irresponsible few. Police can get hurt. Protestors can get hurt. They can be frustrating.
“But even those who dislike the phrase ‘Black Lives Matter,’ surely we should be able to hear the pain of Alton Sterling’s family … and know that his life mattered to a whole lot of people of all races, of all ages, and that we have to do what we can, without putting officers’ lives at risk, but do better to prevent another life like his from being lost.
“With an open heart, we can worry less about which side has been wronged, and worry more about joining sides to do right. Because the vicious killer of these police officers, they won’t be the last person who tries to make us turn on one other. The killer in Orlando wasn’t, nor was the killer in Charleston. We know there is evil in this world. That’s why we need police departments. But as Americans, we can decide that people like this killer will ultimately fail. They will not drive us apart. We can decide to come together and make our country reflect the good inside us, the hopes and simple dreams we share.”
The White House plays no role in designating domestic terror organizations. The U.S. government does not generate a list of domestic terror organizations, and therefore we are not able to address the formal request of your petition. We encourage you to engage with your community in the ongoing discussion of how we can better build trust and safety in our communities.
Thank you for your participation in the We the People platform. We’ll be back in touch soon.
How has your statement, Mr. Divider-in-Chief, helped keep “reckless language” from occurring, especially at the RNC? Not working out to well, eh?
