"The White House plays no role in designating domestic terror organizations," nor does the U.S. government "generate a list of domestic terror organizations."

Come again....

I think they meant to say, "Don't be silly, it's 2016. Only white people can be terrorists."

I'm guessing not a lot of white people in ISIS.

I suspect Obama is forced to take this stance because ALL Islamic sects promote terrorism and otherwise be no rational or informed reason not to recognize every Islamic sect as terrorist groups.

Well, they are technically correct. The white house can't directly declare something a terror organization by itself. There are procedures to go through. Which is why another petition was created with a specific legal wording of something the white house can do. Here's the link.

Don't be fooled by the big, all-caps "Terror Exclusion List" name. That list is still a terror watchlist, despite the counterintuitive name. Might even fool some of the BLM crowd to sign it.

Right...well I guess this clears ALF, BLF, AOG and others.

Ooooh, I know! "The Government" doesn't compile lists. The FBI is a regulatory agent and not actually "government."

Obama denies this just as he denies the atrocities committed by Muslims.

He has been driving our nation to the brink of civil unrest so he can declare martial law and maintain his presidency indefinitely. I really want him to be assassinated soon.

I think you give him a little too much credit to be honest but who am I too judge.

Republicans wouldn't dare impeach Obama because they'd be called "racists" and that would hurt their fragile feelings.

"I think it's important for us to also understand that the phrase 'black lives matter' simply refers to the notion that there's a specific vulnerability for African Americans that needs to be addressed," the president said last week.

Way to side-step the issue. Stop trying to redirect our attention.

It is not their name we are concerned about. It is their similarity to terrorist groups we are worried about.

I think it's important for us to also understand that the phrase 'black lives matter' simply refers to the notion that there's a specific vulnerability for African Americans that needs to be addressed," the president said last week, talking to a Washington, D.C. gathering of enforcement officials, civil rights leaders, elected officials and other activists on the issue of racial disparities in the criminal justice system. "We shouldn't get too caught up in this notion that somehow people who are asking for fair treatment are somehow, automatically, anti-police, are trying to only look out for black lives as opposed to others. I think we have to be careful about playing that game."

Thank you for that statement, Mr. Obama.

Thank you for making it clear that the White House supports an organization whose members are now actively killing members of law enforcement just like they said they would.

Thank god we have elections this year, Mr. Obama. You just boosted Trump's numbers by 5 points, your speeches are better than any campaign advertising Trump could ever hope to buy.

Next step: A petition to have the White House named a terror group.

You shouldn't encourage oppression in your government. You have to be very careful in that game.

"The movement began as a call to end violence," DeRay McKesson said. "That call remains."

Bullshit!
