BLM Should Be Labelled A "Terrorist Organization"

BLM a Terror Group
After days of violence and heightened racial tensions in the U.S., the call to label the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement as a terror group is fast gaining momentum. Almost everyone in the United States have responded favorably well to an online petition asking the federal government to make the move.

"Terrorism is defined as 'the use of violence and intimidation in pursuit of political aims,'" read the "We The People" petition, created last 6 July on the White House website. "This definition is the same definition used to declare ISIS and other groups, as terrorist organizations."

BLM, the petition said, "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 asked the Pentagon to recognize the group as such "on the grounds of principle, integrity, morality, and safety."

The online document received at least 100,000 signatures in the first hours alone and is fast spreading all over the populace through social media.

Unfortunately, the White House plays no "role in designating domestic terror organizations," nor does the U.S. government "generate a list of domestic terror organizations."

Nevertheless, this has not dampened the general mood of the public as the petition came on the heels of deadly officer-involved shootings in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Falcon Heights, Minnesota.

On 7 July, one day after the petition published online, seven law enforcement officers policing a BLM demonstration in Dallas, Texas were shot and killed in a shower of sniper-like fire. And a few days later, three more policemen were shot and killed in Baton Rouge.

BLM activists are supporting the massacre in Dallas, and many members are posting more violence against authorities police after Sunday's Baton Rouge shooting of police officers. This is the nature of BLM and words cannot hide the facts produce by those actions.
