A Black Lives Matter leader declared on Wednesday that if the United States does not cooperate with their agenda, then the BLM movement would “burn down this system.”
BLM Leader Does Not Hold Back
Leader of BLM greater New York, Hank Newsome, went on Fox’s “The Story” to discuss the violent protests that have occurred in the wake of Georg Floyd’s death – a man who died while in police custody last month.

“You … have said that violence is sometimes necessary in these situations,” host Martha MacCallum discussed with 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 shot back, “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,” he continued.
MacCallum responded that her initial question was just an echo of statements she heard Newsome say in other interviews.
“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 continued. “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.”
Riots Keep Getting Violent
In terms of rioting, Newsome said, “I don’t condone, nor do I condemn rioting, but I’m just telling you what I observed.”
Further on in the interview, the BLM president was adamant that the controversial Black Lives Matter movement is all about “saving lives.”
“Nobody’s talking about ambushing police officers. We’re talking about protecting lives,” he said. “There’s nothing more American than that. We talk about uplifting and upholding the Second Amendment, but it seems to be the hypocrisy of America that when black people start talking about arming themselves and defending themselves, [that] talk is ‘violent’. But when white people grab assault rifles and go to our nation’s, their state capitals, it’s all good.”
BLM Destroy Slave Abololishment History
Not so ironically, the BLM movement has been responsible for anarchy and violence while destroying property in the process.
Just one example, earlier this month, BLM protesters tore down a statue of Col. Hans Christian Heg, an immigrant who fought against slavery. Many other statues of slave abolitionists have been completely vandalized and destroyed by the movement, leaving their narrative of being peaceful null and void.

Newsome Dark Threat
Newsome echoed disturbing words at the end of his interview with MacCallum.
“I just want black liberation and black sovereignty, by any means necessary.”
