Every year the Sydney Peace Foundation bestows their Global Peace Prize on extraordinary people who advocate for “true and lasting peace” by ending “war and violent conflict” through addressing “deep injustices and structural inequality.”
Previous years have seen such individuals as Noam Chomsky, Hans Blix and Archbishop Desmond Tutu receive the esteemed prize.
But this year the award is taking a different direction, and rather than being given to a single person, it is being awarded to an entire movement for the first time.
And the winner of the 2017 Global Peace Prize goes to…
Black Lives Matter.
Black Lives Matter, the movement against racial inequality and police violence in the US which began as a powerful hashtag and became a global rallying cry, will be the 2017 recipient of the Sydney Peace Prize – the first time the often-controversial award has gone to a movement and not an individual.
The prize recognises the work of the amorphous racial justice movement that exists under the catch-all moniker, but has nevertheless managed to unite activists from around the world, including in Australia.
The Sydney Peace Prize jury’s citation for this year’s winners applauded the movement “for building a powerful movement for racial equality, courageously reigniting a global conversation around state violence and racism. And for harnessing the potential of new platforms and power of people to inspire a bold movement for change at a time when peace is threatened by growing inequality and injustice.”
But as Louder With Crowder points out, peace is not exactly how one would describe the activities engaged in and supported by Black Lives Matter:
It’s like people don’t have internet access. Memories. Basic motor functions. If they did, they’d be able to use the digits sticking out of their hands to peck a few letters into The Google. Just to verify if Black Lives Matter is worthy of an award bestowment. Like a kind of “vetting” process, if you will. Since the Sydney Peace Foundation lacks finger privilege, I did the search for them.

- WAR ON COPS: #BlackLivesMatter Violently Shuts Down Pro-Police Speech
- REAL RACISM: BlackLivesMatter Leader Calls for Genocide of White People
- TOLERANCE: #BlackLivesMatter ‘Peaceful Protesters’ Attack Trump-Supporter
If this is what the Sydney Peace Foundation considers champions of peace, I’d hate to see what they think war is.
In a world where former U.S. President Barrack Obama is awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009 for doing absolutely nothing and then subsequently orchestrating campaigns that have led to the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of people across the world it would make perfect sense for the Sydney Peace Foundation to award a similar prize to an organization whose immediate membership and loosely based offshoots advocate for racial segregation, violent protest, and the killing of police officers.
In the eyes of some, peace is war.
Based on this example maybe Kim Jon Un wins it in 2018.
No one in that group is worth the 50 cents for the bullet to put into their head.
You can get bullets for 20 cents if you buy in bulk
Oh This Blows away Durrango Kiddy’s assumption of Gold Backed Currencies will never happen in his lifetime.
I (Zeus, Hermes, YellowPokaDot) have stated this many times on here, well here you go DK.
Not only is the Chinese Yuan Backed By a Physical Gold Exchange, Now Saudi Arabia is implementing a similar Gold Standard to Back their Paper Currency.
I also stated back Prior to Dec 31st, when the Sharia Law was changed allowing the Muslims to exchange Gold as was illegal before hand. Thus all of tis will help drive the price of Gold and its piggy back Silver to new high rated. Physical Gold will be instantly sucked out of the markets.
This is a Direct Hit on the Devalues worthless US Petro Dollar. Get rid of that Toilet Paper ASAP and get you some PM’s Gold and or Silver.

Gold-backed Currency Launches in Dubai
•New gold-backed currency OneGram launched
•Backed by one-gram of gold, uses blockchain technology
•OneGram is first in wave of new Shariah, tech-savvy gold products
•2017 sees big changes for gold thanks to Shariah gold and blockchain
•Gold investors should prepare for tightening in supply
•Bitcoin and shariah gold demand suggest change in retail investor thinking
Technology, shariah gold and bitcoin point to changing views
As part of the celebrations, a new gold-backed currency has been launched, here in Dubai. It is a new currency known as OneGram (OGC) backed by one gram of gold and can be used for digital payments. There is a fixed number of OGCs and digital transaction fees (minus admin costs) will be reinvested to buy more gold. According to the managers, “the amount of gold backing each OGC will increase with time.”
OneGram has been launched by a private company of the same name. The company claims to offer a proof-of-stake blockchain that is ‘’further anonymized’ than Bitcoin. Reports state that ‘developers employ zero-knowledge dual-key stealth addresses and ring signature protocols toward ‘instant, untraceable, unlinkable, trustless transactions.’
Shariah Gold Standard
In December we witnessed the launch of the Shariah Gold Standard. Announced in Bahrain by the Accounting and Auditing Organisation for Islamic Financial Institutions (AAOIFI) and the World Gold Council, the Standard is the first ever set of guidelines for the 2 billion Muslims looking to invest in gold-based financial products.

Menzo, I would still put a bullet in his head anyway. Black CRIMINAL Lives Matter is a total black criminal organization dedicated to the destruction of white people and good black people as well. I think 10 percent of the 100,000,000 gun owners out there can put them out of existence. It’s coming to that.
Hahaha black lives matter hahaha that is as ridiculous as that criminal oboinga. So fuuuuny. Thanks for the laugh.?
“Burn this bitch down!” << the BLM chant during the Ferguson riots.
Yeah that sure is peaceful and worthy of the esteemed Peace Prize. This only proves the prize committee is smoking crack.
But … but … doesn’t President Obola deserve another one for LEAVING office, thereby halting the armed insurrection that would have surely followed had he remained ???
Just asking. 🙂
obamaramadandingdong the obammunist deserves special award for being worst POS in the white house ever in the history of this country
White Man’s “Black Guns” matter more.
Give Them Lead, AMEN to that one. To me, black criminal lives don’t matter.
I have killed”people”. Though I didn’t suffer “PTSD” or feel guilt, I can’t say I enjoyed it. And really don’t enjoy the thought of doing it again. Can’t identify with those who seem to lust for the opportunity to slaughter fellow citizens. Maybe it’s “Rambo” syndrome.
the “Global Peace Prize” is a two-bit bullshit “prize” handed out by middle school kids and has nothing to do with the Nobel Peace Prize.
The Sydney Peace Foundation is nothing but a vase full of delicate flowers. Not important, just impotent, and aware of it. Thus aggressive press releases.
Both of them are nothing but PC garbage!
SOMEBODY just HAS to come out with a Nobel prize for EVIL………..
Something bad just happened. My Mexican friend just passed away in the heat yesterday. The heat has been really bad in Houston and I over heated at the BOL 2 weeks ago, but you guys know that i am always prepared, and had water melon and other fruits with me, but the heat and humidity was intense, we had to literally bail. It been cool in Houston and the heat just suddenly came on with humidity of 85% with a heat index of 93..We were soaked in 20 mins, and we hydrated before and we had to leave in 1 hr. I over heated and knew I was in trouble, so I got in the water melon right away, and recovered quickly. Quick thinking is my thing. Its been unusually extremely hot around our city lately. This is the second time that death has struck in close proximity of me, too damn close, too close for comfort. He was one damn good Mexican American.. His wife is hurting badly from his death. I have to go by to comfort her today. I tell you man, life can be a real hell fucking hole.
I just talked to him just Wednesday evening. I feel like shit today. Life is a fucking bitch. I feel so bad for his wife.. When I see this like this happen in close proximity of me, if gave me a real fucked up feeling. This is why I don’t like globalist and other soldiers that like to come into our country to kill us and abuse us. Life is already a bitch just existing in civilian life, and now they want wars with us. You foreign invaders will literally feel the heat when you mess with us.
Heat index of 93. Wow. You would just die here in NC. We had a lot of days last summer in the 110+ range. Nothing happened to me, and I don’t even have air conditioning. I had to mow grass and do other yard work anyway.
You should come out this way Sunday. It’s supposed to be close to 90 with high humidity. So the heat index will be in the upper 90s, close to 100.
Sorry to hear about your friend.
I attended a RTXC( a real time operating system)
class in Houston.
Being a Seattle guy at the time, I was
dying from the Humidity and heat.
I don’t know how the people there can
handle it, day in, and day out.
Sorry bout your buddy HCKS,tough luck.
Prayers for you and your friends family.
watermelon is a GREAT way to hydrate…too bad about your friend. my best friend died last week, so i feel for yuh. i have been thinking of an underground bunker for YEARS. everything is 56* around here in hi desert ca when more than 3 feet underground, it’s sumthin’ to think about. i never got around to it yet…..maybe soon.
My condolences, HCKS. There’s a lot of people dying unexpectedly right now. Yesterday, my son moved back home temporarily. His landlady died unexpectedly, then his girlfriend had a classmate wrap a car around a tree, then the bar owner they play pool at, had a severe stroke and the family pulled the plug yesterday. One heck of a crappy week for a lot of people. Stay strong, HCKS. We are pulling and praying for you.
Must be the “Sydney Piece” (of Shit) foundation.
This for a group that wants to eliminate the word”white”? They want violence and are funded by George Soros? Maybe they should cut the red tape and give it directly to Soros. It’ll be tough cometition…ISIS will give them a run for their money.
i think they should give blood……ALL of it!
This is indeed sad; I mean really sad. People have lost all common sense and critical thinking.
You cannot bestow morality. The integrity of the Patriot is all there is left. I too see fewer means to peacefully extricate us from the consequences of our apathy. It is unfortunate we never became a true Constitutional Republic. A gift that was wasted just like this one will be.
On the plus side, it’s better than Al Gore and faux global warming.. or Obungler. Or not.
Yawn. What happened?
I never heard of the Sydney Peace Prize before they gave it to nobody peaceful and I’ll never hear of them again.
Once again, blacks get used as a convenient tool by others to get ahead…
Never heard of it either.
No peace in the black lives matter people.
Know Jesus. Know peace.
Nineteen eighty four…
“Woe to those who call evil good and call good evil.”
Buckshot matters. Really.
Really no worse than Obama’s Nobel prize.
Neither one is even slightly reflective of reality and both were (probably) racially motivated instead of reality motivated.
I’m sorry to go off topic, but I’ve just got to say something about Kathy Griffin . She is now blaming Trump for losing her jobs, and for her getting death threats. Griffin’s lawyer also stated that she doubted if Barron Trump was traumatized by the severed head of Trump. Griffin blames POTUS and his family for bullying her and making her lose her jobs. Does this not sound like another Hillary Clinton, blaming everyone but themselves. This makes me sick that people cannot take responsibility and blame for their own actions. She has no one to blame but herself; no one held a gun to her head and made her do it. Griffin is just boohooing like a big baby. She can dish it out, but she can’t take the heat. STFU Kathy!
Is this real life? Or is his from The Onion? If it’s real then I think we can safely say the world has gone bat shit crazy.
I actually had to verify to make sure it wasn’t the Onion! haha
Logic – It ain’t what it used to be.
Only 3 words W.T.F.!!!!!!!
Why does it surprise anyone ?
Sydney Peace Foundation = 0 creditibility
Dear Sydney Peace Foundation. I don’t think peace means what you think it means…
Hey, fits right in with Barack Obanana getting the Nobel Peace Prize…and liberals dare to criticize Saudi Arabia….bah. What is up is down, ad nauseum…
I am surprised they didn’t award it to ISIS/ISIL….oh wait…they did just different initials/acronym..
And in the latter days men will call good evil and evil good.
Lefty, that really sums up the world we are living in now. If I weren’t seeing it with my own eyes, I wouldn’t believe it!
The simple truth is that Black Lives don’t matter. Not to them, not to most anyone else. They might matter if they’d get off their collective asses and seek to improve their own lives. By work, real 2 parent families, forget dreaming they’ve got some talent or another and getting educations, learn to speak intelligibly, learn to appreciate music above a primitive level, learn self-restraint and personal responsibility……. the list can go on. Until then – no, their lives just don’t matter much.
Life is becoming more like Bizarro World every day!
The reason it went to the group and not the individual responsible for creating the group is because then it would become apparent that George Soros is picking George Soros for this prize. I vote for me and it is my award. I paid for the trophy and the prize money came from the money I swindled from you. Haha. I don’t care about the bleeping holo cost. I am evil. I am a Pew.
The Global Peace Prize means nothing any more, its a joke.
Black lives matter is a terrorist group.
Ex-President O’shitforbrains received this meaningless award.
Libtards are really screwed up in the head.
All I can say is WTF????
The Australians have their own dark history in how they treated the aborigines. Can anybody think of someone who has actually made a real contribution to world peace in the last twelve months?
People, don’t confuse this with the Nobel prize. This is simply a foundation associated with the University of Sydney.
Here’s a list of their recent previous winners:
2010 Vandana Shiva (look her up – she’s the only one who doesn’t seem to be a liberal nutcase
2011 Noam Chomsky (political activist, accused of anti-Americanism.
2012 Sekai Holland (human rights advocate)
2013 Cynthia Maung (medical doctor and advocate of health and human rights)
2014 Julan Burnside (refugee advocate)
2015 George Gittoes (human activist)
2016 Naomi Klein (a social activist)
2017 Black Lives Matter (no comment)
Alfred Nobel must be spinning in his grave.
no no no no this is NOT the NOBEL peace Prize, this is an aussie five and dime outfit Alfred Nobel has NOTHING to do with it
250 black people were killed by police in 2016. The police killed 963 people in 2016.

Back the blue legislation sponsored by Republicans is unconstitutional legislation for many reasons. Firstly, vague language is used. Laws must be written using concrete wording and not the vague language in this bill that could always be argued in favor of the police.
Citizens, journalists, and politicians jumping in on the band wagon to back a law which they have not entirely read is an assault on our country and civil liberties.
This law basically places law enforcement above the law. Anyone who feels that they are above the law, has no moral capacity to serve in law enforcement or any other branch of government. This law would exempt police officers from paying anything other than monetary damages for any crime regardless of their guilt and would exempt them from accountability for their actions. It would also award up to $20 million dollars of federal funds per each department in grants to state, local, and police departments which could likely be used for the further militarization of police forces.
The police killed 963 people in 2016. It is the citizens who are having their lives endangered by police, not the other way around.
There were 20 law enforcement officers murdered by guns in 2016 and the total officer down for 2016 is 53 which includes 21 killed in or by autos, and 12 by other causes.
The “milk of human kindness” has truly gone sour when anyone awards a prize to such a group. It is sort of like holding a parade in honor of that terrorist who killed all those people. The only bad guys I really liked were Boris and Natasha from the Rocky and Bullwinkle show.
Black lives don’t matter. Who really cares if this subspecies is eradicated. They’re a detriment and destroy every society that has tried to treat them as humans,
Show me one country ruled by these people that isn’t a hell hole?
That is why I come to this site. I enjoy the articles, and the good posts / commentaries that follow. Hcks, I am sorry about your friend. Last summer, my area had horrible heat, with high humidity and heat indexs in the 90’s to 100’s. I lived in my home with the central a/c going, being forced to do life’s errands early in the morning, or in the evening. ‘ I want to move out of here and away from the snow, but I don’t know if I could move to North, South, Carolinas, Georgia, or Florida with the heat and humidity.
They have made the Nobel prize irrelevant. It has turned politically correct now like everything else. It is based on how they look to people, not what the real goal of the prize is about. So, why listen to it?
