A Year Of Destruction: Nobel Peace Prize Nominees And Violence "For A Greater Cause"

Click to see full-size image

The 2021 Nobel Peace Prize appears to be heavily contested, judging by some of the expected nominees.

Nominations for the Nobel peace prize are accepted from any politician serving at a national level, and they are allowed just 2,000 words to state their case. The deadline for this year’s submission is February 1st, and by the end of March the committee prepares a shortlist.

The winner is chosen in October and the award ceremony is scheduled for December 10th. There were more than 300 nominations for last year’s award, which was ultimately won by the World Food Programme.

These year’s notable mentions include: the BLM movement, Greta Thunberg (again), former US President Donald Trump (again), Belarus “opposition leader” Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya, and Russian opposition figure Alexey Navalny, and Trump’s son-in-law and the most vocal supporter of Israel – Jared Kushner and his deputy Avi Berkowitz.

Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda nominated Belarus opposition leader Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya. She claimed that she had won the presidential elections in Belarus, after previously being a stay-at-home mother and English teacher, but her husband, an actual politician was arrested for attempting to organize violent riots.

The BLM movement was nominated by the Norwegian MP Petter Eide said the movement had forced countries outside the US to grapple with racism within their own societies.

“I find that one of the key challenges we have seen in America, but also in Europe and Asia, is the kind of increasing conflict based on inequality,” Eide said. “Black Lives Matter has become a very important worldwide movement to fight racial injustice.

“They have had a tremendous achievement in raising global awareness and consciousness about racial injustice.”

Eide, who has previously nominated human rights activists from Russia and China for the prize, said one other thing that impressed him about the Black Lives Matter movement was the way “they have been able to mobilise people from all groups of society, not just African-Americans, not just oppressed people, it has been a broad movement, in a way which has been different from their predecessors.”

Eide, however, said he didn’t want his nomination for Black Lives Matter to be seen as a comment on domestic US politics.

Furthermore, when confronted with the reality that BLM protests involved a lot of violence, destruction of public and private property and looting, he said that wasn’t the case. He simply said it was either “counter-protesters” or “police”.

“Studies have shown that most of the demonstrations organised by Black Lives Matter have been peaceful,” he said. “Of course there have been incidents, but most of them have been caused by the activities of either the police or counter-protestors.”

The study in question is a highly dubious “research” report by the Armed Conflict Location and Event Data project in September 2020 which showed that 93% of Black Lives Matter demonstrations involved no serious harm to people or property.

Navalny was obviously nominated for surviving an alleged failed assassination attempt and being “Putin’s arch-enemy”. Also for not respecting the law being arrested as a result.

Greta Thunberg is the world’s premiere climate crisis advocate, and her nomination is also no surprise.

Finally, Jared Kushner and Avi Berkowitz. They were nominated by a friendly attorney for the Nobel Peace Prize for their role in negotiating four normalization deals between Israel and Arab nations known as the “Abraham Accords.”

“The deals were announced in a four-month span between mid-August and mid-December and were the most significant diplomatic breakthroughs in the Middle East in 25 years as the region girds for a prolonged confrontation with Iran.”

In his letter to the Nobel committee, Dershowitz also cited the work of former U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman and former Israeli ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer in the normalization deals. He seemed to suggest his nomination could be controversial.

“The Nobel Peace Prize is not for popularity. Nor is it an assessment of what the international community may think of those who helped bring about peace. It is an award for fulfilling the daunting criteria set out by Alfred Nobel in his will,” he wrote.

The race promises to be interesting, as each of these individuals (and organizations) has attempted to bring forth change, which has been hugely misrepresented by MSM and social media, with the Tech Giants behind their back. True advocates of the neo-liberal agenda, and of violence to reach one’s goals.

That violence has, more than once, been presented either as not having been carried at all, or blamed on another party.

navalny, trump, blm and now head jewish scum kushner, the latter nominated by the the jewish professor dershowitz, is a collection of basically criminally insane public figures that has caught the eye of msm and are totally out of the question – anything with israel is and should be out of bounds, ditto for navalny and trump. but since it is a norwegian collection of idiots making the choice, anything can happen (bet the jew ambassador to oslo is busy giving dinners and free trips to palestine for the nobel committee so to make them make the right decision).

Black Lies Matter should definitely be awarded the Mostly Peaceful Prize.

Or make that the Mostly Peacefool Prize, as BLM becomes increasingly aware that they were gamed by the (illegitimate) J.O. Biden regime

Arthur Deodat Jr.

E.g. Brown shirts prize?

Cheryl Brandon

verner

what a ridiculous group of nominees put forward this time around – trump, navalny, kushner and blm and since the committee is norwegian you can expect them to please the disunited states of exceptional idiots and thus kushner is closest to become 10million nok richer.

Nobel peace prize has been a joke ever since Obama won it simply for becoming US president whilst being (half) black. Every year the award becomes even more absurd.

Ivan Grozny

Obombo himself has confessed to not even know why he got the prize!
If this was for real, they might have given it to somebody who really made a difference, and used their power, influence to install some peace! Putin would be a fair candidate, so would Chinas Xi or maybe even the Iranian minister for foreign affairs – Mohammed Sariff!
But, since obombo got it – and proceeded to bomb more people than even crazy Bush … not worth the effort

daniel

Lol,and before Obama it was good?

Cheryl Brandon

Assange, Jimmy Dore, FM Lavrov, FM Mohamed Javid Zarif, THE HOUTHIS OF YEMEN FIGHING FOR THEIR INDEPENDENCE, AHED AL TAMMINI PALESTINIAN TEENAGER WHO STOOD UP TO IDF TERRORISTS

Séamus Ó Néill

Since virtually those nominated are the antithesis of peace and are deep state actors , formenting discord and dissonance, to varying degrees, should this meaningless “trinket event” not be regelated to the annals of history…..the real peace-makers are too busy to be even noticed !

daniel

Le Duc Tho, vietnamese general is the only decent human being who refused to accept the prize,. Le Duc Tho is a real hero!
