NY BLM Leader Says They Will “Burn It Down” If They Don’t Get What They Want

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. It’s not quite at the “no-go” with sharia law officers in European nations, but, seriously, what could possibly go wrong with armed “officers” wandering around interfering with the operations with duly enabled government law enforcement officers? How’s it going to look when they are protecting actual criminals?

    Sounds like a declaration of war.

  2. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Change it peaceably. How has that worked?

    One man, one vote?

    The last thing the plutocracy will allow is actual self-governance. Voter suppression, gerrymandering.

    The system he said he’d burn down has not been fair to Black Americans. To women. To Muslims. To immigrants. To gays. To American Indians. To the working classes.

    If a minority wants to rule the majority they have two choices: Give the majority what they want and need or suppress them with violence or the threat of violence.

    • Nighthawk says:

      The problem is, they want to burn down the wrong system. The justice system isn’t what’s unfair. It’s the Demonrat system that’s unfair. The system that rewards bad behavior. The system that encourages minorities to remain the victim. The system that just hands them whatever they want taking away any incentive to be self sufficient. The system that you and your ilk want. THAT’S what needs ‘burned down’.

      The biggest thing wrong with this country is NOT systemic racism. That doesn’t exist. It is the problem of making bad choices and the failure to take personal responsibility for those choices. The Demonrat system encourages this.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        The Rethuglicans have been dismantling the system since 1980, shuttling the results of worker productivity to the plutocrat class. As you may recall, tRump was elected promising white high school grads (white working class)a bigger slice of the economic pie, which they honestly deserve. Of course tRump, a demagogue, blamed economic inequality on brown immigrants, Muslims, lazy Black Americans, liberals etc… everyone except the system of government policies that continues to gut middle America. Did a $trillion tax cut for the wealthy and corporations help the working class? Did the promised high-paying manufacturing jobs appear?

        Our current economic recession has over 45 million American workers receiving unemployment benefits. 15% unemployment. 5% drop in GDP with more to come. Trillions added to the debt with more to come.

        All of this affects the working class more than white collar and plutocrats.

        tRump2020: Resign Now!

          Going back to Dubya for cute little names. How pathetic.

          And, no, we don’t remember anything of the kind, but, isn’t that what you’ve been whining about, that the “working classes” haven’t been getting enough?

          Recession is over except in the blue states and we’re already seeing better numbers.

          Yeah, you said 12 and it turned out to be 3. Funny that.

          And where were you when Zippy was jacking up the debt?

          All of this affects the working class more than white collar and plutocrats.

          It does? You’re telling us white collar workers are plutocrats (there’s a word out of the New Deal propaganda)?

          PS Most of those plutocrats anymore are Democrats.

    • Kye says:

      The system he wants to burn down has given black Americans, women, mooslems, immigrants, Indians and “the working classes” (who ARE the majority he wants to burn down) the very same vote, protection under the law, equality in justice, ability to prosper, opportunity to better themselves and most importantly FREEDOM. That’s why they don’t fukin leave to go somewhere else. There is nowhere else a good, free, just and kind as America and Americans. I don’t know what you commies want because EVERY single place you’ve taken over in history failed in a bloodbath. And if you think only you know the path to earthly perfection you’re an idiot.

      As Americans we really need to separate ourselves from these commie agitators. One way or the other.

      “The mob whipped up by communist leftists is currently desecrating and destroying statues of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, just like Trump predicted. These great Founding Fathers are not alone:
      Fewer than three years later, precisely as President Trump predicted, iconoclastic mobs have moved on from toppling Confederate statues to deface, damage, and destroy statues of and memorials to Admiral David Farragut, abolitionist Matthias Baldwin, American Revolutionary War Gen. Philip Schuyler, a Texas ranger, Commanding Gen. of the Union Army Ulysses S. Grant, Frances Scott Key, Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson. A statue of former President Theodore Roosevelt is facing imminent removal in New York City.
      Either our history is off limits to liberal purges, or we can expect it all to be purged.
      On tips from Seaoh and Blackjack.”

      Trump 2020 Or Elwood and his band of commies WILL burn it down.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        If Kye no longer likes America he can leave.

        Removing statues is not rewriting history. We can all agree that we should not be honoring the confederate traitors, so their statues can be removed with little disagreement. We don’t have statues of Hitler. Flying the confederate flag is like waving swastikas in a Jewish community. If you want a statue of Robert E. Lee, Hitler or want to fly your confederate flag at home, knock yourself out.

        All that Black Americans, gays, native Americans, immigrants, Muslims want are equal rights and opportunities. Oppressor groups always feel discriminated against when the oppressed demand equal rights.

        The response that “they” have it better here than other places, although “they” don’t have it as good here as do whites, is an irrelevant diversion. So “they” should be grateful “you” allow them to be here.

        • formwiz says:

          Same applies to you.

          Removing statues is erasing history as Jeffery’s Uncle Joe made us all realize.

          And we cannot agree ignoring Confederate heroes is something we should do. Killing off the opposition is what Commies do, not Americans, and they weren’t traitors.

          We don’t have statues of Hitler. Flying the confederate flag is like waving swastikas in a Jewish community.

          No, that’s your thing. It took Lefty courts to make it legal.

          If you want a statue of Robert E. Lee, Hitler or want to fly your confederate flag at home, knock yourself out.

          OK, let’s all go pull down the statue of Lenin.

          Jeffery first.

          All that Black Americans, gays, native Americans, immigrants, Muslims want are equal rights and opportunities. Oppressor groups always feel discriminated against when the oppressed demand equal rights.

          They have them. And nobody wants to stop that except the Lefties, else where would their street thugs come from?

          The response that “they” have it better here than other places, although “they” don’t have it as good here as do whites, is an irrelevant diversion. So “they” should be grateful “you” allow them to be here.

          Pretty much. If they don’t take advantage of the opportunities offered, it’s all on them.

          All Black Americans, gays, native Americans, immigrants, and Muslims have equal rights and opportunities. Whatever gave you the idea that they didn’t?

        • Kye says:

          “If Kye no longer likes America he can leave.”

          You can shove that idea up your commie ass. I have 12 generations of family who fought for this country including myself. I’m not going anywhere. My family has been building this country since 1752 and we ain’t leaving. You commies who don’t like the Great Republic we helped build on the other hand should go to a nice commie country and enjoy.

          All those separate groups you mentioned DO HAVE equal rights and opportunities, sometimes more. So stop lying and dividing Americans. You should worry about ALL AMERICANS not just those your Democrat masters subjugate for votes. You should worry why the Democrat cities, controlled by Democrats are right now being burned down BY DEMOCRATS. There are no Republican Conservatives in BLM or Antifa. They are all Democrats and communists. So right now IT IS YOU who are supporting the traitors and the treason! You Elwood are a traitor! Just like the Slave Master Democrats that came before you. That’s why you are so consumed with white guilt. I guess if my family had been on the side of traitors and slavers I too may have white guilt. But my family fought to free the slaves and afford them safety and Freedom from the Democrat KKK and oppressive laws. I with my white, Christian nationalist church marched in the South in 1965 along side my black countrymen for civil rights. Where the fuk were you Elwood? When my sister and I were being called “nigger lovers” by Democrat racists where were you? Parading around in your Red Diaper, no doubt.

          Trump 2020 We need to get the commies out before they come for our families.

  3. alanstorm says:

    “I said If this country doesn’t give us what we want, then we will burn down the system and replace it.”

    That’s called a “tantrum” when a kid does it.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      A tantrum is when a child cries over not getting a popsicle.

      Revamping “the system” to serve ALL Americans is good policy.

      The Plutocrat Party has made it clear they intend to maintain control “by any means necessary”.

      • Kye says:

        I presume that stupid childish triggered comment means you are for burning down the Democrat controlled cities. On this we agree. I also believe the billionaire and millionaire Democrat hypocrites should be stripped of their wealth and it should be dispersed as “reparations” among the blacks they have enslaved for years. Now we’re talking real reform.

        BTW, has anyone noticed—everyone who has been caught in blackface is a leftist:

        —Ralph Northam

        —Jimmy Kimmel

        —Jimmy Fallon

        —Howard Stern

        —Joy Behar

        —Sarah Silverman

        —Ted Danson

        —Gigi Hadid

        —Julianne Hough

        —Billy Crystal

        —Justin Trudeau

        Maybe Republicans aren’t the problem here? Democrats no longer exist they’ve morphed into Bolsheviks. The purges have begin, where will they end?

        The Democrats have moved on from wearing white hoods and robes, burning crosses and lynching blacks and Republicans. Now their burning entire cities in the name of Elwood’s need for atonement.

        Trump 2020 Before Elwood comes for our families.

        • Professor Hale says:

          What I find amazing is that Jeff supports every single leftist political position on every topic. One would expect a real person to have some disagreements or even points of nuance. The Democratic party is really good at forcing compliance with their party line. One would think that any reasonable person would see that burning down your neighborhood is a bad thing. Jeff isn’t even using his weasel words like, “while I don’t agree with their use of violence, I can understand their frustration”. he is all in on war against the USA and it’s people.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            What I find amazing is the that the Nutty Perfesser supports every single right wing political position on every topic.

            One problem with connies is their willingness exaggerate everything to an absurd extreme. Is anyone really burning down their neighborhood? If they are, is it a neighborhood worth saving?

            Does the Nutty Perfesser understand why the BLM protesters are frustrated?

            To the Nutty Perfesser, does a policeman kneeling on a man’s neck until death qualify as violence? How about shooting a man in the back twice as he was running away? How about 3 men stalking an unarmed Black American and killing him with a shotgun? How about lack of access to healthcare leading to disproportionate outcomes? Poorer schools, poorer police protection, less access to necessities?

            What does one expect when the state literally and figuratively kneels on the necks of citizens based on their skin color?

          • Professor Hale says:

            You don’t listen, so a response would be pointless. You never seem to tire of being wrong on every point. Your incessant name-calling and lack of even basic courtesy makes you unworthy of respect. I was talking about you, not to you.

            Have you decided yet to give Biden your total support yet? The Party bosses have spoken, so it’s safe for you to take a position on that.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      • formwiz says:

        No, it’s a tantrum.

        The same tantrum thrown in the 60s. The same tantrum when it was Occupy.

        Things aren’t the way the Lefties want, so they throw another tantrum.

        This isn’t revamping, it’s an attempted revolution. It won’t serve anybody but the komissars. It will service Americans.

        And, of course, it’s lousy policy.

        The Plutocrat Party has made it clear they intend to maintain control “by any means necessary”.

        Remind me again which party ends in crat?

    One problem with connies is their willingness exaggerate everything to an absurd extreme. Is anyone really burning down their neighborhood? If they are, is it a neighborhood worth saving?

    Probably better than yours. And, no, as always it’s black neighborhoods that the Lefty mobs burn down.

    Jeffery sounds like he’s down with that.

    Does the Nutty Perfesser understand why the BLM protesters are frustrated?

    he understands they’re not protesters, just thugs, and he understands their only frustration is they can’t run off with more than one big screen TV at a time.

    To the Nutty Perfesser, does a policeman kneeling on a man’s neck until death qualify as violence? How about shooting a man in the back twice as he was running away? How about 3 men stalking an unarmed Black American and killing him with a shotgun? How about lack of access to healthcare leading to disproportionate outcomes? Poorer schools, poorer police protection, less access to necessities?

    Only if it results in death, which it didn’t. The guy was flying on meth and fentanyl. Death was self-inflicted.

    As usual.

    And you shoot the guy enough times until he stops. Applies to white guys.

    There’s a trial. We’ll see what the facts are. Funny how that shooting didn’t lead to all this crime.

    Funny you mention health care. Most of the gentlemen, regardless of color, seem to be in the pink. Healthy enough to work. Now that the crash has flopped, ought to be lots of jobs.

    Oh, that’s right, that only applies to red states. The blue ones are still under tyrannical lockdown. Maybe they need to switch parties.

    As for poorer whatever, blame the Democrats. Their cities, their states.

    You know all those working classes being victimized by the plutocrats? Sounds like that’s what’s happening to blacks in blue states.

    What does one expect when the state literally and figuratively kneels on the necks of citizens based on their skin color?

    Try voting for the party that’s been out of political power for 50 years.

    The ones who ran the cities so the services worked.

  5. formwiz says:

    Jeffery is so worried about black economic problems, he should concern himself with the blue state lockdown depression.

    Oh, my.

  6. formwiz says:

    And the hits just keep on a-comin’.

    Turns out Jeffery’s BLM protesters aren’t as frustrated as he would like. According to Pew (of all people) only 16% of the rioters are black.

    Tell it not in Christendom.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Porter’s Pfluffer keeps unashamedly a’fluffin’ his master.

      You go girl!

      The statistics should frighten Fluffy more than he’s frightened now. About 13% of our total population are Black Americans and 84% of the protesters are not Black. It seems the BLM protesters have a lot of support from others. Millions of Americans are sick of Don’s shit.

      • formwiz says:

        No, it seems most blacks want the cops. Just because a few white nitwits are trying to prove their street cred doesn’t mean they have that much support among Americans of any color.

        And funny how the Demo nominee (even though we’re still having primaries) did so miserably last night.

        Seems like a lot of Demos will be voting for The Donald this Fall.

  7. Kye says:

    So the “protesters” (they are rioters) are burning down businesses and buildings, tearing down statues, murdering and raping people in DEMOCRATIC controlled cities because they’re
    “sick of Don’s shit”? That makes zero sense even in the half-assed world of the professional leftist. Try again, Elwood.

    It looks to me like the Democrats are once again in full revolt. They’re burning cities and taking them over at will. It’s an invasion. I think it’s time Trump gives them the “Lincoln treatment” and blows their asses to kingdom come.

    • formwiz says:

      Trump’s just going to give them the choices of more Democrats or him.

    I will say it again. Name one Confederate convicted of treason. And there’s damned few juleps in PA.

    Boy.

    Connies usually cite the lack of treason charges as the basis for their ridiculous claim, ignoring that President Andrew Johnson pardoned all confederate traitors.

    And Johnson was as much in error as Bucketmouth pardoning all the draft dodgers who went with you to Canuckistan.

    Only a racist would claim Black Americans have received a fair shake.

    Only a racist would claim white people haven’t worked prodigies in giving blacks the same rights as whites.

    PS Confederate is capitalized, black, wrt race, is not.

    I would expect even an ignoramus like you would know that.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Canuckistan is not a word. Sorry, but no capitalization for confederate traitors. We capitalize Black Americans out of respect, so go fukk yourself.

      • formwiz says:

        No, you capitalize black only because the WaPo (or some other Lefty rag) suddenly decided this was a cool Lefty thing to do.

        Acceptable English usage is not dependent on a bunch of limp-wristed wannabe apparatchiks, but on accepted rules. White is not capitalized (or yellow or brown or red), so black should not be, either.

        Also Confederate is the name of the nation for which the Confederates fought. They lost, but Confederate is still capitalized as all intelligent and educated people agree.

        And many people call that misguided group of 10 recalcitrant US states above the 54th parallel
        Canuckistan.

        So there.

        Capitalizing of a handful of blacks funded and used as a front by some pussified whites is clearly something not catching on, so you feel the need to put on the bear suit.

        So be it and we’ll let you fu(k you because clearly no one else wants to soil themselves.
        Whether you (alone or with all your cartoon characters and sock puppets) agree is of no moment
