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.

  1. Hey genius you are an American. This system offers the greatest freedom that black people, hell any peoples, have ever had in history. And your ignorant ass wants to burn it down and replace it with i assume is socialism. Why dont you throw off the chains that bind you and contribute to this magnificent country?

    Agreed !

    I always ask people like Hawk and so many others that seem to be basic anarchists that want to tear down the greatest democracy that ever existed the following question .

    Please tell me the last time you saw 200 Americans of any ethnicity, skin tone, or religion rush down to the beach in Miami, cobble together a raft out of old cigar boxes and row off to Cuba, Venezuela, or El Salvador?

    I think we might be waiting a long time for an answer to that .

    No democracy is perfect but most are getting better and we must also keep in mind that more refugees and immigrants, and illegals for that matter of any number of religion and skin tones choose the USA over any other country in the world . I believe the U.S. accepted over 1 million refugees alone last year .

    God Bless America !

    Having said all of that any immigrant, any refugee, that immigrates to the U.S. should be deported the first time they are convicted of any felon, that would include myself or any of my family members .
