A top activist in the Black Lives Matter movement has said that “if this country doesn’t give us what we want, then we will burn down this system and replace it.” This caused radio host Mark Levin to give a fervent response on “Hannity.”
Levin rhetorically asked Greater New York Black Lives Matter President Hawk Newsome: “You’re gonna burn what down, pal? I’m sick and tired of these d–n threats from people I don’t even know.”
Newsome told Martha MacCallum, host of “The Story,” that his “burn down this system” comment could be taken “figuratively” or “literally.” He added that “it’s a matter of interpretation.”
“You’re gonna burn what down?” Levin asked again. “What exactly are you gonna burn down, tough guy? I’m sick and d–n tired of it.”
“This is a civil society,” Levin said. “It’s a great country. You don’t like it? Pick up your a– and leave. We have people trying to get into this country by the millions, from every continent on the face of the earth. Every color, every background. Why? Because we’re systemically racist? We’re not systemically racist and the police force isn’t systemically racist.”
On “LevinTV,” Levin said the real mission behind the BLM movement is not to right the wrongs of racial injustice, as reported by The Blaze.
“When these politicians are embracing Black Lives Matter … the organization, they are embracing a Marxist, anarchist organization that is extremely well funded, and extremely well organized all over the country,” Levin said. “It’s almost like the Weather Underground except, smartly, they’re using race as the issue through which to push their Marxism.”
