13:35 EDT, 25 June 2020 

 

The founder of Black Lives Matter's New York organization has threatened to 'burn down this system' unless the United States changes its ways - remarks that Donald Trump on Thursday labelled 'treason, sedition, insurrection'.

 

Hawk Newsome told DailyMail.com the Black rights group is 'mobilizing' its base and aims to develop a highly-trained 'military' arm to challenge police brutality head on.

'We want freedom from an oppressive government, and we want the immediate end of government sanctioned murder by the police,' he said.

'And we prepare to stop these government sanctioned murders by any means necessary.

'We are preparing and training our people to defend our communities.'  

Newsome was asked about his comments on Fox News on Wednesday night. 

'If this country doesn't give us what we want, then we will burn down this system and replace it,' he told host Martha MacCallum.  

'And I could be speaking figuratively. I could be speaking literally. It's a matter of interpretation.'

 Racial tension has exploded across the country since the killing of George Floyd by a white police officer in Minneapolis on May 25. 

Hundreds of thousands of protesters have taken to the streets of cities from coast to coast, calling for police reforms.

But the protests, largely peaceful, have sometimes turned violent, with looting and arson.

But while big money donations have been flooding in from celebrities and high worth individuals, he insists his group won't accept the 'corporate dollar'.

The protesters have also targeted monuments and statues, including those of Confederate soldiers and the Founding Fathers, spray-painting them with graffiti and pulling them to the ground.

Newsome said the movement is about 'saving lives' and it should be praised for supporting the Second Amendment.

He said the protest was getting positive results. 

'Let's observe the history of the 1960s, when Black people were rioting,' he told the tv channel.

'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.' 

Newsome insisted the Black Lives Matter movement is about 'saving lives' and its adherents should be 'applauded' for upholding the Second Amendment.

'Nobody's talking about ambushing police officers,' he said. 

'We're talking about protecting lives. 

'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.'

MacCallum opened the discussion by referencing DailyMail.com's interview, and asking Newsome: 'You have said that violence is sometimes necessary in these situations. What exactly is it that you hope to achieve through violence?'

Newsome contested the premise of her question. 

'Wow, it's interesting that you would pose that question like that,' he said.

'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.'  

The pair then discussed Martin Luther King Jr and his legacy, before Newsome tried to get the host to agree that Jesus was Black. 

At the conclusion of the interview, Newsome told MacCallum: 'I just want Black liberation and Black sovereignty, by any means necessary.'

Trump Rage-Quits Fox News After Network Shows Him Trailing Joe Biden In Polls

 
Ed Mazza
HuffPostJuly 6, 2020

President Donald Trump said he’s done with Fox News after the network on Sunday showed him trailing former Vice President Joe Biden in the polls. 

Trump claimed he was leading in “real polls” but did not cite any:

Trump has repeatedly claimed that 96 percent of Republicans approve of him. While he does enjoy high levels of support among members of his party, there are no recent polls that show him reaching that level. Last week, a Hill-Harris X poll found he had an 82 percent approval rating among Republicans, down from 91 percent in May. 

In addition to attacking Fox, Trump also urged his supporters to change the channel:

Trump has repeatedly attacked news agencies for reporting on polls unfavorable to him and even sent a “cease and desist” threat to CNN last month for broadcasting a poll that showed him trailing Biden by 14 points.

The Trump campaign also reportedly cut ties with some pollsters last month after internal polls were leaked. Those polls showed Trump trailing Biden in several swing states.

Trump has expressed displeasure with Fox News numerous times in recent months. In May, he complained that the network was “doing nothing to help Republicans, and me, get re-elected.” He also said he was “looking for a new outlet.”

Despite his complaints, Fox News has remained friendly territory for Trump, with personalities such as Sean Hannity frequently offering lavish praise. Over the weekend, the network even cropped an image of late sex offender Jeffrey Epstein with Trump to remove the president. 

Twitter users had some thoughts on the feud:
