NYC BLM Founders Threaten ‘Riots,’ ‘Bloodshed’ If Mayor-Elect Restores Anti-Crime Units

“If he thinks that they’re going to go back to the old ways of policing, then we are going to take to the streets again.”

On Wednesday, leaders of New York City’s Black Lives Matter group threatened “riots” and “bloodshed” in the streets if Mayor-elect Eric Adams restores the NYPD’s anti-crime units.

The anti-crime units were disbanded last year as the city bowed down to the Black Lives Matter riots and calls to “defund” police departments, resulting in a massive increase in violent crime in the city. Democrat Eric Adams won his election after campaigning on a tough-on-crime agenda.

“If he thinks that they’re going to go back to the old ways of policing, then we are going to take to the streets again. There will be riots, there will be fire and there will be bloodshed because we believe in defending our people,” said Hawk Newsome, co-founder of Black Lives Matter of Greater New York, after a meeting with Adams.

“So there is no way that he is going to let some Gestapo come in here and harm our people,” Newsome told the New York Daily News. “We pray for peace but … prepare for the worst.”

Newsome’s sister added: “We will shut the city down. We will shut down City Hall, and we will give him hell and make it a nightmare.”

During the meeting, Adams reportedly “erupted” at the BLM leader after he swore he would hold Adams responsible for any future perceived misconduct by the NYPD, according to the Daily News.

“You’re on the ground: Stop the violence in my community. I’m holding you accountable,” Adams said.

“Don’t hold me accountable,” he continued. “Being the mayor, being the borough president, being the state senator — I put my body on the line for my community, so I’m not here for folks to come and say, ‘Eric, we’re gonna hold you accountable.’”

“No, it’s us. We need to do this together,” Adams said.

    The ONLY way “his people” are going to be harmed is if they carry out the THREATS OF “VIOLENCE AND BLOODSHED” that this DOMESTIC TERRORIST is advocating !! Time for the Mayor to step up and ENFORCE the Law by whatever means necessary !! A good start would be to ARREST this TERRORIST for the violence he is promising will happen !! Call in the National Guard and deal with him and the rest of the BLM and ANTIFA TERRORISTS the way they SHOULD be dealt with !! Let’s see if the new MAYOR carries out his DUTY to protect New Yorkers and the city from the promised violence !!

    Not only should the anti-crime units be reestablished but to help combat BLM/ANTIFA rioting, looting, arson and murder, the police should deputize veteran NRA members and allow vigilante justice. Then we’d see how brave those ghetto vermin are.

    This dude is lost in his hate. Actually announcing riots and bloodshed openly like this? You’d think the law would be able to do something about this.

    So it’s okay to threaten the politicians if you are BLM but if this was a right wing nut, they would have the FBI all over them. Stinks of huge hypocrisy.

    Conrad Agusti how in the world can one individual threaten to riot and burn a city and kill police officers and destroy everything in their path without being stopped? and why Biden and Kamala act to stop this individual? This is a terrorist that needs to be stopped the sooner the better

    Where’s DOJ ? Where is Mr. Garland ? This is the threat against the law enforcement. DOJ chief has a gut to accuses parents ,who oppose school board against CRT, as terrorist. Here’s the chance for DOJ to prove its law enforcement power.

    What BLM is threatening is domestic terrorism. We should use all measures to protect our cities and our citizens. Those who burn, loot, injure and kill are simply criminals and should be made to pay to the fullest extent of the law. We ALL of us have grievances. There are appropriate forums to address them. Terror is NOT an appropriate method.

    Why is it that one man can spew words which reflect valance and destruction???? All life’s matter.
    I’m actually white. And I see no color of skin in a person. The narrow minded follow such hate and anger. Folks , its a free country. You want to blame the right movement????
    Start with your elected officials.
    Start with who’s evil and the Cult thats responsible for what we the people of America are facing.
    Its a Cult named Skulls & Cross Bones.
    The very ones who killed John Fitzgerald Kennedy. Those are the ones America & Americans need to hold accountable. Not white working Americans or black Americans etc .
    Stop the hate . All life’s matter.

Catholic University Hangs Painting Depicting George Floyd as Jesus Christ

Kelly Latimore’s painting, titled ‘Mama,’ evokes Michelangelo’s sculpture ‘La Pieta’

Kelly Latimore's painting, titled 'Mama,' evokes Michelangelo's sculpture 'La Pieta'

The Catholic University of America has a new painting causing an uproar. The artwork depicts George Floyd as Jesus Christ. One student described the display as “heretical, blasphemous idolatry.”

“There’s a fine line between recognizing the innate dignity and righteousness of human beings that are made in the image of God and embracing brazen, progressive politics” student Blayne Clegg told Fox News.

The school said the painting was done by Kelly Latimore and is titled “Mama” which shows a mother mourning her son. It evokes Michelangelo’s sculpture “La Pieta” according to the school. Michelangelo’s work, however, depicts the virgin mother Mary holding Jesus Christ.

Two of the paintings hang in the campus. One in the law school and one in the campus ministry office. The artist has indicated his painting represents Jesus and George Floyd. Karna Lozoya, vice president for university communications told The Daily Signal “you can identify Jesus by the marks in the halo.”

Following The Daily Signal’s report on the paintings, the Catholic University chapter of Young Americans for Freedom started a petition to remove the paintings. One student who asked to remain anonymous out of fear of retribution from the university’s administration stated “there are many students, faculty, and staff who are concerned about this, but there is nothing we can do.”

“The icon has no place at The Catholic University of America; it is blasphemous and an offense to the Catholic faith, but it is not surprising at all that it was put there. It is just another symptom of the liberalization and secularization of our campus” the student added, who lamented, “If we sound the alarm, we will be labeled racists.”

Facebook’s ‘Race-Blind Practices Around Hate Speech’ Came at ‘Expense of Black Users’

Published

Facebook

Newly discovered documents show how tech giant Facebook’s attempt at being neutral came at the expense of minorities and people of color. The Washington Post reports “Facebook’s race-blind practices around hate speech came at the expense of Black users.”

Researchers at Facebook proposed “a fix to the biased algorithm” when they showed company executives an example of the kind of hate speech that was circulating on the social media platform. “

The Washington Post article writes that an incident occurred in which an actual post featuring an image of four female Democratic lawmakers known collectively as “The Squad.” The Post reports:

The poster, whose name was scrubbed out for privacy, referred to the women, two of whom are Muslim, as “swami rag heads.” A comment from another person used even more vulgar language, referring to the four women of color as “black c—s,” according to internal company documents exclusively obtained by The Washington Post.

The post represented the “worst of the worst” language on Facebook — the majority of it directed at minority groups, according to a two-year effort by a large team working across the company, the document said. The researchers urged executives to adopt an aggressive overhaul of its software system that would primarily remove only those hateful posts before any Facebook users could see them.

But Facebook’s leaders balked at the plan. According to two people familiar with the internal debate, top executives including Vice President for Global Public Policy Joel Kaplan feared the new system would tilt the scales by protecting some vulnerable groups over others. A policy executive prepared a document for Kaplan that raised the potential for backlash from “conservative partners,” according to the document. The people spoke to The Post on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive internal matters.

The previously unreported debate is an example of how Facebook’s decisions in the name of being neutral and race-blind in fact come at the expense of minorities and particularly people of color. Far from protecting Black and other minority users, Facebook executives wound up instituting half-measures after the “worst of the worst” project that left minorities more likely to encounter derogatory and racist language on the site, the people said.
