A petition led by citizens of the United States to have the Federal Government officially recognize the BLM group as a terrorist organization is nearing 100,000 signatures. If that happens, the White House HAS to respond.
breitbart.com reports: The petition, which calls on the White House to “Formally Recognize Black Lives Matter As a Terrorist Organization,” contains the following description:
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 petition now requires just under 5,000 more signatures to get an official response from the White House.
The White House’s official online petition system, dubbed “We The People” was introduced by President Barack Obama shortly before the end of his first term.
Despite promising to answer any petition that meets the 100,000 threshold, “We The People” has attracted criticism due to the administration’s tendency to leave petitions that meet the threshold unanswered for months, and sometimes years.
