A petition created just a week ago on the White House’s official online petition system
requesting the federal government to “formally recognize Black Lives Matter as a terrorist organization” already has over 125,000 signatures.
This petition was created the day after the Dallas police officer massacre by black supremacist Micah Xavier Johnson.
The petition states: “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.”
It has met it’s 100,000 signature goal and according to the “We The People” website, any petition that meets that threshold must get an official response from the White House.
Unfortunately, this hasn’t been the case in the past. The government has been notoriously known to make petition signers wait months or even years until they respond.
In 2013, 30 petitions that received the required signatures were left unanswered by Obama’s administration, according to The Washington Post. Then in 2014, a petition was even launched requesting that the federal government actually respond to the petitions.
Nonetheless, these recent petition and its major support shows that Americans are appalled at how the Black Lives Matter campaign has fueled such destructive and violent behavior.
David Clarke, the black Milwaukee Sheriff commented this week about how dangerous BLM has become. He said the incident in Dallas as “mission accomplished for Black Lives Matter, not an aberration.” And “The violence- and hate-filled messages pouring out of Black Lives Matter seek exactly this kind of bloody resolution, or revolution, though they cannot admit it in polite society,” said Clarke said in a Monday op-ed on Fox News. “Even as celebrities clamor over themselves to demonstrate their fealty to the hate group, they align themselves with one of the most destructive groups to the well-being and justice for black Americans that exist today.”
As the columnist Todd Starnes recently headlined his piece, “Hey, Black Lives Matter, stop terrorizing our cities.”
