Hank Newsome, the head of Black Lives Matter (BLM) of Greater New York who recently promised “bloodshed” in the city, cut short an interview with conservative radio host Dan Bongino.
Bongino began the interview by addressing Newsome’s explicit threat to New York City Mayor-Elect Eric Adams.
“If they think that they’re going to go back to the old ways of policing, then we’re going to take to the streets again,” Newsome told reporters, referring to racially motivated riots throughout 2020 that led to significant violence and destruction of property.
“There will be riots,” the BLM leader vowed, “there will be fires and there will be bloodshed.”
Dan Bongino began the interview by showing the clip of BLM leader Hank Newsome making the violent threats.
“Do you condemn riots and burning down buildings after a police use-of-force incident you don’t like?” Bongino asked.
“No,” Newsome replied. “What I’ll say is, I understand when a police officer unjustifiably kills someone, why people lash out. I understand that completely.”
Bongino kept pressing Newsome to condemn violence, but he refused.
“I’m not going to condemn, nor am I going to condone it,” he said.
Hank Newsome, the BLM leader who promised riots, bloodshed, and fires throughout New York City, couldn’t take the heat of the interview with Dan Bongino.
The conservative radio host whose show was placed in the time slot once dominated by Rush Limbaugh repeatedly referred to Newsome as a coward for not condemning the violence.
“Isn’t that cowardly?” Bongino asked. “‘I’m not going to condemn it, but I’m not going to condone it — so I don’t want to take a stand.'”
“You seem to talk a lot of junk and then when I put you on the spot you won’t answer a damn question,” railed Bongino. “Do you condone violence or do you condemn violence? You’re all over the place. Just condemn violence and burning of buildings down. How hard is it?”
Shortly thereafter, Newsome tucked tail and ran.
“God bless you, man. I’m out of here,” he said, removing his mic and walking out.
Not sure what running away from somebody calling you a coward does for street cred, but this isn’t a good look for Newsome.
Fox News contributor and civil rights attorney Leo Terrell mocked Newsome as little more than a “shakedown artist.”
“This is a person who supports riots. It’s offensive,” Terrell said. “He does not represent Black people.”
