Are NY liberals good with this? How about other liberals? Because if things are getting burned down, literally or figuratively, it will mostly happen in liberal cities and liberal neighborhoods
(Breitbart) Appearing Wednesday on the Fox News Channel’s The Story with host Martha MacCallum, Greater New York Black Lives Matter president Hawk Newsome warned that if the United States “doesn’t give us what we want, then we will burn down this system and replace it.”
MARTHA MACCALLUM: People watch what you say in that video, that you now want to show legislation down people’s throats now that you have everyone’s attention and you’ve also said violence is sometimes necessary in these situations. What exactly is it that you hope to achieve through violence?
HAWK NEWSOME: Wow, it’s interesting that you would pose that question like that because this country is built upon violence. What was the American Revolution, what’s our diplomacy across the globe? We go in and we blow up countries and we replace their leaders with leaders who we like. So for any American to accuse us of being violent is extremely hypocritical.
That sounds like he’s proposing actual violence. Which, let’s be honest, is something that has happened throughout history in all sorts of countries. This has been happening in South Africa, but, there are a hell of a lot more non-blacks in the US than blacks, unlike SA.
MACCALLUM: The only reason why I posed that first question to you the way that I did is I watched you talking on a bunch of different interviews today and you said, “burn it down.” You said, “burn it down, it’s time.” That makes me think you want to burn it down.
HAWK NEWSOME: I said If this country doesn’t give us what we want, then we will burn down the system and replace it. All right? And I could be speaking figuratively, I could be speaking literally. It’s a matter of interpretation. Let’s be very real and let’s observe the history of the 1960s. When black people were rioting, we have their highest growth and wealth, in property ownership. Think about the last few weeks. Since you started protesting there have been eight cops fired across the country. Remember you were telling us that there was Due Process?
That’s why the cop that choked Eric Gardner kept his job and kept receiving raises for five years. Anytime a cop hurt a woman, a child, our elders, there was always a call for due process. But the moment people start destroying property, now cops can be fired automatically. What is this country rewarding? What behavior is it listening to? Obviously not marching. But, when people get aggressive and they escalate their protests, cops get fired, now, you have police officers and Republican politicians talking about police reform. I don’t condone nor do I condemn rioting but I’m just telling what I observed.
This is a good way for people to tune out when they’re hearing a message of blackmail and threats: “give us what we want or we just might get violent.” This is much the way the mafia operated. And one reason the FBI along with federal, state, and local justice departments went after them.
Mark Levin notes
“This is a civil society,” Levin continued. “It’s a great country. You don’t like it? Pick up your a– and leave. We have people trying to get into this country by the millions, from every continent on the face of the earth. Every color, every background. Why? Because we’re systemically racist? We’re not systemically racist and the police force isn’t systemically racist.
“Now, these are Bernie Sanders radicals,” Levin added. “These are Marxists. They go out and get hats, and they get shirts, and they burn things down and break things in Democrat cities because these pathetic left-wing Democrat mayors won’t stand up to them.”
Exactly. If they don’t like it, leave. If they want change, do it peaceably. And, perhaps they could tell their fellow Modern Socialists to leave the climate change, trans this and trans that, and all the other stuff out of it. Once you start mixing the messages, making them muddled, people tune out.
Meanwhile, Newsome also has other thoughts
The Black Lives Matter movement will develop an armed branch of “peace officers” to combat police brutality in black communities during the so-called war on police, according to one of its leaders.
Protests broke out across the country following the death of unarmed Minneapolis black man George Floyd while in police custody, bringing the BLM movement back into national focus. In an interview with the Daily Mail, BLM New York chapter Chairman Hawk Newsome described how the group plans to follow in the footsteps of the Black Panthers Party by matching fire with fire – when necessary.
He’s talking about creating armed officer units to patrol black areas and clash with real government forces.
If violence is sometimes necessary, why are they mad at the police when they must resort to it? Who here is being extremely hypocritical.
Their numbers are small, their goals are clear, just read it on their website. They are marxist domestic terrorists bent on the destruction of our country.
None of their goals will lift any American of any color.
5 dead police officers in Dallas just 1 week after visiting Obama in the White House.
More than 400 law enforcement officers injured in riots.
Going to burn it down?
It looks to me like they already began.
Murder, arson, rape, destruction of property, blockades, vandalism, toppling statues–all the work of dedicated anarchists.
Fascists and communists. What a coalition the Democrats have assembled.
