(TheFreedomFlag.com)- A Black Lives Matter leader threatened to “Burn down this system” if the government and political leaders don’t give them what they want, in a shocking interview on Fox News. On Wednesday, Hawk Newsome, the president of Greater New York Black Lives Matter, threatened to take direct action and literally “burn down” the American system if people don’t capitulate to their demands.
Fox News host Martha MacCallum asked Newsome about his previous endorsement of violence, asking, “what exactly is it that you hope to achieve through violence.”
Newsome acted shocked as if asking a question like that was somehow unreasonable.
“Wow, it’s interesting that you would pose that question like that because this country is built upon violence,” he claimed. “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 we like. So for any American to accuse us of being violent is extremely hypocritical.”
MacCallum held her own, telling him that the only reason she posed the question is that she saw clips of him in other interviews saying things like “burn it down, it’s time.”
“That makes me think you want to burn it down,” MacCallum said.
Newsome responded by doubling down on his threat of burning down the American system.
“I said if this country doesn’t give us what we want, then we will burn down the system and replace it. All right?” he said.

“And I could be speaking figuratively, I could be speaking literally. It’s all a matter of interpretation.”
He obviously wants it to be interpreted literally, otherwise he wouldn’t be saying it, would he?
It seems clearer than ever that Black Lives Matter isn’t just about equality. That’s something most people already recognize as existing. This is a radical movement willing to use violence to advance their political aims…one of which is to destroy capitalism, too.
Why are political leaders capitulating to these extremists, again?
