While appearing on Fox News Wednesday, Greater New York Black Lives Matter president Hawk Newsome told host Martha MacCallum that if America doesn’t give them what they want, they will burn down the system and replace it. BLM leader demanded.
He justified his insurrection by citing the American Revolution and claiming that the United States is founded on violence and spreads violence around the world.
According to Fox News (Emphasis added):
“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?
“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.”
MacCallum clarified that her question was based off comments she had heard Newsome utter in various interviews.
“I said,” Newsome told the host, “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.”
And how many cops were killed or injured since the protests started?
Newsome never said what he wanted to replace the United States with, but given the Marxist background of BLM, we have a pretty good idea…
He refused to condemn the rioting and later claimed to be a Christian, calling Jesus Christ a black revolutionary who was assassinated by the government.
“I love the Lord and my Lord and savior,” Newsome said. “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.”
Sorry, Mr. Newsome, but Christians and Jews agree Jesus Christ was a nice middle-east looking Jewish boy who went into his father’s business. The disagreement is what his father’s business was.
At the end of the interview, he revealed his real intent: “I just want black liberation and black sovereignty, by any means necessary.”
