    Some 200 people were arrested at another BLM protest due to violence, this just following the slaying of police in Dallas.

    So should BLM be considered a terrorist organization?

    For left wingers like Marauder, are there any real terrorist organizations? For left wingers, there is only fighting back against injustice, unless you are whitey. If you are whitey you use violence because you are a bigot or rich capitalist. There is no real terrorism, which begs the question of why they are so dedicated to gun control? Why would you remove there supposed only means of defense?

    To date, deaths in Tea Party rallies 0. Why is that? Is it because they all have not really experienced true oppression yet?

    Dictionary definition of terrorist:
    Someone who uses violence, mayhem, and destruction — or the threat of those things — to coerce people or countries into taking a certain action is a terrorist.

    So yes, BLM is a terrorist organization.

    Were the Founding Fathers a terrorist organization?

    Left wing logic

    1. The police are a bunch of racist murders

    2. Only the police should have guns

    Certainly would seem so by the common definition.
    I forget what figure is claimed, but a large part of the colonial population didn't support them and considered them traitors, didn't they?

    I guess you didn't bother reading the definition.
    Just google "BLM protestors turn violent" and look at all the pretty videos of them rioting, etc.

    BLM is not an "organization"; it's a civil rights movement. Al Qaeda is an organization, ISIS is an organization; BLM isn't. BLM activists act independently; some activists use peaceful protests, some use violence. You can't fault a movement designed to address racial injustice for the actions of extremists.

    Think of it this way: do the abortion clinic bombings (and shootings) mean pro-lifers are terrorists?

    Yes the prolifers that use violence are terrorists. Are the doctors that perform abortions for purposes of eugenics terrorists?

    They call themselves an organization, here's their web page:
    http://blacklivesmatter.com/about/

    Your comparison of pro-lifers and totally unconnected people that bomb clinics is another false analogy that is typical of your muddled thinking.
    Swear to God it's like you are retarded or something.

    Like I said, BLM activists act independently; the fact that *some* people formed an organization named after movement doesn't mean it an organization. It would be like a pro-life organization being named "Pro-life".

    How are people that bomb abortion clinics "unconnected" from the pro-life movement? Did the Planned Parenthood shooter choose the facility because the building was pretty?

    They act independently?
    Is that why multiple BLM protests spontaneously spring up all across the country on the same days?
    If THEY call themselves an organization, who the F are you to tell them they aren't?

    You do realize that there's a thing called "Twitter", right? And you do realize that the movement actually started on Twitter, right? With such a popular medium (that can be used to spread ideas to millions in an instant) it's not hard to rally people for a cause.

    If BLM activists want to call themselves an organization, more power to them. It still doesn't change that it is, in fact, a movement that started on social media.

    For the last time!

    If they are black and violent, they are not part of BLM.

    If they are Islamic and violent, they are not really Islamic.

    Got it?

    Once people turn to violence, then they are forever labeled.

    Interestingly, the Tea Party never become violent.

    Why?
