Appearing Wednesday on the Fox News Channel’s The Story with host Martha MacCallum, Greater New York Black Lives Matter president Hawk Newsome said, if the United States “doesn’t give us what we want, then we will burn down this system and replace it.” Trump responded by tweeting, “This is Treason, Sedition, Insurrection!” [Nice response, Mr. President, as usual. When are you going to do more than make nice comments? Start with your good friend Soros. How long do we have to wait?] -GEG

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.”

A partial transcript is as follows: 

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.

[…]

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.

Did George Floyd Die from Asphyxiation or Drug Overdose?

The official county autopsy mentioned that Floyd had a concentration of the drug Fentanyl at three times the lethal level. We hesitated to publish this fact and risk being accused of trying to cover up police brutality, which certainly is not the case. We have a long record of reporting on cases of police brutality when warranted.

Why Social Distancing Is Harmful to Children

July 3, 2020 Leigh Dundas 1

The COVID-19 fatality rate for children is so low that the CDC calculates it at 0.0% for anyone under 19 years of age. Isolation creates depression, lack of sleep, poor cardiovascular function, cognitive decline, and impaired immunity. This is a must-watch.

If the BLM burns down the system, who is going to protect the rioters . If assessed the rioters and put on an island, the first thing these rioters would do is form a government, because someone has to be in charge. Someone has to get food, water. shelter, and put men in charge to protect the rioters from wild animals.These people would turn into,the Americans they can not stand.
