Greater New York Black Lives Matter president Hawk Newsome made an appearance on Fox News to openly admit that the organization is willing to do whatever it takes to get what they want – including burning the system to the ground.
“You … have said that violence is sometimes necessary in these situations,” host Martha MacCallum told Newsome. “What exactly is it that you hope to achieve through violence?”
“Wow, it’s interesting that you would pose that question like that,” Newsome responded, “because this country is built upon violence. What was the American Revolution, what’s our diplomacy across the globe?”
Newsome continued expanding on how poorly he thinks of America, “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.”
“If this country doesn’t give us what we want, then we will burn down this 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 observe the history of the 1960s, when black people were rioting,” he went on. “We had the highest growth in wealth, in property ownership. Think about the last few weeks since we started protesting. There have been eight cops fired across the country.”
Later in the interview, Newsome insisted the radical Black Lives Matter movement is about “saving lives” despite the fact that it’s an organization rooted in violence and hate.
“Nobody’s talking about ambushing police officers. We’re talking about protecting lives,” he said. “There’s nothing more American than that.”
MacCallum then apparently perturbed Newsome by reading a Martin Luther King Jr. Quote, asking if he agreed with it.
“Let us be dissatisfied,” King told the Southern Christian Leadership Conference convention in 1967, “until that day when nobody will shout, ‘White power!’, when nobody will shout, ‘Black power!’, but everybody will talk about God’s power and human power.'”
“I love the Lord and my Lord and savior,” Newsome responded to MacCallum’s prompt. “Jesus Christ is the most famous black radical revolutionary in history. And he was treated just like Dr. King. He was arrested on occasion and he was also crucified or assassinated. This is what happens to black activists. We are killed by the government.”
Conservative radio host Mark Levin questioned Newsome’s dangerous comments while on “Hannity” Wednesday.
“You’re gonna burn what down, pal?” Levin rhetorically asked the BLM president. “I’m sick and tired of these d–n threats from people I don’t even know.”
“You’re gonna burn what down?” the “Life, Liberty & Levin” host asked again. “What exactly are you gonna burn down, tough guy? I’m sick and d–n tired of it.”
“It’s time to get behind the cops. It’s time for these pathetic Democrat mayors and governors to call in the National Guard,” Levin told Fox News’ Sean Hannity. “It’s time to take our streets back, and I’m talking for tens of millions of people, a rainbow coalition of Americans — black, brown, white, yellow, red, whatever.”
“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.”
