Stacey Abrams nominated for Nobel Prize


Recommended Posts

 

OSLO (Reuters) - U.S. voting rights activist and Democratic Party politician Stacey Abrams has been nominated for this year’s Nobel Peace Prize for her work to promote nonviolent change via the ballot box, a Norwegian lawmaker said on Monday.

 

Abrams, whose work was credited with boosting voter turnout last year, helping Joe Biden win the U.S. presidency, joins a long list of nominees, including both former President Donald Trump and his son-in-law, former White House adviser Jared Kushner.

“Abrams’ work follows in Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s footsteps in the fight for equality before the law and for civil rights,” said Lars Haltbrekken, a Socialist Party member of Norway’s parliament.

King, a Baptist minister who became a leader of the 1960s civil rights movement, won the Nobel prize in 1964 and remains among its most famous laureates.

“Abrams’ efforts to complete King’s work are crucial if the United States of America shall succeed in its effort to create fraternity between all its peoples and a peaceful and just society,” Haltbrekken said.

Thousands of people, from members of parliaments worldwide to former winners, are eligible to propose candidates, and a nomination does not imply endorsement from the Nobel committee in Oslo.

Other candidates this year include Russian dissident Alexei Navalny, the World Health Organization and climate campaigner Greta Thunberg.

...The 2021 laureate will be announced in October.

Stacey’s efforts got two DemocRAT senators elected in GA and thwarted the party of Q from stopping President Biden’s bold and transformational agenda for this country.  She should also get the Presidential Medal of Honor.

I imagine Trump's having 3 scoops tonight, just to keep his head from spontaneously combusting..... And probably an extra dose of that special British Aderall.

Oh, if a black woman gets the Nobel before the Orange one, THAT will get some shit busted at Mar-a-Loco.

Then lets make sure he knows about Wangari Maathai. He was probably so coked up on Epstein Island, with one of his daughters class mates, that he missed it, but.....

Did someone actually nominate Shitstain and Jared, or was that just sarcasm? Un-fucking-believable!

Yes someone did, no mention of how much they got paid or what was promised.

José Andrés should be first in line.

He certainly should be right up there in the front, no doubt.

(Hell, anyone who was friends and drinking/eating buddies with Anthony Bourdain should be at least given a presidential medal of honor)

The Reich is utterly incapable of analyzing, or even describing, 

what Ms. Abrams has done or is proposing. 

For them, politics is all about "personalismo" - blind 

fealty to some, and equally blind opposition to others. 

That is not what one would call mature, is it? 

Come on Reichistas, prove me wrong. What is she 

proposing and why do you agree/disagree ?? 

Can't do it, can you ??

And molehills out of mountains when they want.

In general, the right does not understand or deal with policy (as we see here), 

and that is a major reason why they are so bad at governing. 

As my progressive US Senator Brown points out, the right 

actually has no interest in governing.

Can't do it, can you ?? 

Only a couple of days ago you complained and feigned outrage about posters being less than cordial to each other etc. and now you use this inflammatory language to describe your opposition?
 

And weren’t you  a “professor” at some stage of your illustrious career?

 

Its no wonder the country is going to shíte.

Why should I respect people who are too lazy to do basic fact finding ?? 

You are a prime example. 

(And I do NOT refer to all of the opposition as the Reich - but some of them, for sure.)

You too meathead. 

I challenge you to describe the POLICIES that Ms. Abrams favors, and explain why they are good, bad or indifferent. 

You can't do it can you ? 

For the Reich, it's all about the Fuhrerprinzip, except that the Drumph replaces Adolph 

You believe what you are told to believe.

Watching Ms. Abrams take Sen. Kennedy apart was fun. When someone is smarter than you and has a better grasp of the subject matter, you best not try to drag her into your circus, clown. He pulled the plug on that stunt in a hurry.

I had an aunt who was a professor of math and history at a prestigious university.

She was one amazingly intelligent person and I often would listen to her dispense wisdom for hours on end.

I remember one such conversation where she told me that in her opinion and generally speaking, one could break down into two categories the people in academia, those who had good memories and who could retain and recite knowledge (parrots) and those who understood the subjects and could dissect, examine and Who could corroborate or refute  various hypotheses.

 

 

You clearly fall into the former category if indeed you ever were a professor, which judging by the content you your posts is highly debatable.

And you can do neither. 

Still no effort whatsoever by the right here to describe & analyze Ms. Abrams' proposals. 

You can't do it, so you fall back on your good ol' reliable aspersion casting and name-calling. 

The label of "Reichista" for you is entirely appropriate.

Another infantile outburst from an idiot who claims to be a professor.

lol

 

Do you ever read the shíte you post before hitting the send button?
 

I mean, some of your contributions are beyond cringe worthy and dumb and which wouldn’t be otherwise concerning but for the fact that you claim to have achieved the Academic status of professor.

That is a damning indictment of academia if in fact true


Further, Why would you expect others to engage you  and your contemporaries on this board in serious conversation on this subject  when you idiots refuse to acknowledge the most basic of facts which is that the violence perpetrated by the African American community is out of control and at crisis levels?

The thread is about Ms. Abrams. 

You are unable to take part in it. 

You might also be unwilling, but I'll stick with unable. 

Your unsupported assertion about black crime is off topic; 

it has nothing whatsoever to do with voting rights. 

Feel free to start another thread.

There is, notably, no space in academia for a blow hard who needs to insult those with differing opinions in order to feel his argument is better.

The ad hominem attack is left to drop outs and assholes.

Very much like the days when folks would spout off about their opposition to President Obama being based on his policies. 

When pressed for WHICH policies, the subject was changed.

Those were the days.

Can't judge a book by it's cover nor a person by their color. Many a person is making that mistake with Stacy Abrams, I also feel sorry for the fools who get chewed up and spit out for trying. Almost.

If You idiots want to be taken seriously then at the very least be consistent.
