BLM Leader: If The US Doesn’t Give Us What We Want, Then We Will Burn Down This System and Replace It.
Black Lives Matter leader Hawk Newsome told Fox’s “The Story” host Martha McCallum that “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…”
Replace it with WHAT? He didn’t continue with the remark.
The Greater New York Chair of BLM continued:
…Let’s observe the history of the 1960s, when black people were rioting. 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…
…I don’t condone nor do I condemn rioting. But I’m just telling you what I observed.”
When Martha McCallum read a quote by Dr. Martin Luther King, and asked Newsome if he agreed with it, he responded,
“I love the Lord and my Lord and savior. 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.”
There are some serious fundamental problems with his statement, and most of all it’s missing the “love” part. First off, Jesus wasn’t “arrested on occasion.” Just once. Hawk is missing love, either for the Lord or his fellow man. Anyone can claim to love the Lord, but the proof is in the actions, not the words.
This BLM leader speaks rhetoric that is designed to deceive. There are many things in America that are difficult for everyone.
Newsome called it the ultimate hypocrisy to ask any question about Blacks being violent, when he said this country was founded on violence and pointed to the American Revolution. He mentioned that US foreign policy is often violent.
But wanton violence doesn’t “save lives,” as the BLM leader claims. It takes them, and particularly innocent lives. Marxist/Communist adherents have never been about “saving lives,” they’ve been among the most vicious killers in history to get what they want- control. And BLM is a Marxist organization. His true intent was revealed by his last statement in the interview:
“I just want black liberation and black sovereignty, by any means necessary.”
There will never be another America where any race can succeed and live peacefully with their neighbors. But the kind of “success” proposed by this man could be deadly to everyone else.
