Bongino Caused BLM To Storm Out On Air
This was both hilarious and just sad. New York City Black Lives Matter leader(BLM) Hawk Newsome proved to the world that he is completely incapable of answering a simple question. The propagandist really only knows how to spew garbage chants and misuse historical quotes and Dan Bongino just proved it in one humiliating interview.
Newsom met with the mayor-elect Eric Adams and was still fuming about plans to reform plain-clothes officers:
"If they think they are going back to the old ways of policing, then we're going to take to the streets again," Newsome said Wednesday after the meeting. "There will be riots, there will be fire, and there will be bloodshed."
So Bongino figured he must have been heated and gave him a chance to clear up what appears to be a call for violence.
"You don't want riots, right? You don't want riots, correct? And violence? I just want to get you on the record," Bongino asked Newsome during the interview.
"I'm going on the record right now. As Dr. [Martin Luther] King said, riots are the voice of the unheard," Newsome responded. "It's a natural occurrence that if people continue to be traumatized and oppressed they will lash out."
Bongino later asked again trying to pin Newsome down to an answer.
"Do you condemn riots and burning down buildings after a police use-of-force incident you don't like?" he asked.
"No. What I'll say is: I understand when a police officer unjustifiably kills someone, why people lash out. I understand that completely," Newsome responded. "I'm not going to condemn, nor am I going to condone it."
"Isn't that cowardly?" Bongino fired back. "'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. Do you condone violence or you condemn violence? You're all over the place. Just condemn violence and burning of buildings down. How hard is this?"
"OK, I'll give you this," Newsome said. "I don't condone it, I don't promote it, but I will not condemn it."
"Man, that's just cowardly, man. That's just cowardly," Bongino pointed out.
Newsome then tried to get the last word in and told Bongino he was done removing his earpiece, and walking off.
I don't know about you, but I am pretty sick of people using MLK Jr to justify their violence. Out of all the potential historical figures, why choose the one whose entire mission was to spread his message using peaceful protest? Dr. King never condoned violence, he despised it.
