PETITION TO DESIGNATE THE ‘BLACK LIVES MOVEMENT’ AS A HATE ORGANIZATION
The Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement was founded in 2013 as #blacklivesmatter.
BLM is now an organized network of more than 20 chapters in the U.S. according to its own Facebook page: “We look forward to hearing your voice about the work of the #BlackLivesMatter Organized Network.”
BLM founders, leaders and members use hateful, inflammatory and dangerous language advocating violence against police, whites and other “non-blacks.”
BLM advocates the assassination of police officers by promoting the “creation of funerals in the police community.
BLM marchers were recorded on August, 29, 2015 chanting, "Pigs in a blanket, fry 'em like bacon" at the Minnesota State Fair only a few hours after Deputy Darren Goforth was shot "execution style" at a Houston gas station.
#blacklivesmatter called for the murder of more police officers on a site called "blog radio."
If a group comprised of whites, Asians, Hispanics or other non-blacks advocated violence police, they would be rightfully labeled a "hate group."
Therefore, we the people, desiring to protect all people of the United States and secure the safety and dignity of law enforcement officers, respectfully request that Congress:
- Declare BLM to be a hate group under the definition adopted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI): an organized group or movement that advocates and practices hatred, hostility, or violence towards members of a race, among other designated sectors of American society.
- Find that BLM meets the criteria of the FBI associating hate groups with a propensity for violence: organizational capacity, organizational constituency, strategic connectivity, and structural arrangement.
- Adopt legislation creating the felony of ethnic intimidation, as provided below, to dissuade BLM from acting or threatening to act against others based upon race.
