(TruthandLiberty.com) – On Wednesday, November 10, New York Black Lives Matter (BLM) co-founder Hawk Newsome met with New York City’s incoming Mayor, Eric Adams. They discussed Adams’ promise to return plainclothes anti-crime police to the streets to shut down the year-long crime spree occurring throughout the city. Hawk warned if Adams followed through, there would be riots, fires and bloodshed. In a press conference following the meeting, Adams said he would not be intimidated.

On Saturday night, November 13, former NYPD police officer, and now Fox News host Dan Bongino, confronted Hawk about his statement. Needless to say, it didn’t go well. Bongino asked a simple and direct question: Would Newsom condemn the violence? The answer was immediate and fast “No.” Then, Newsome backtracked and asserted numerous times under intense questioning from Bongino he would neither condemn nor condone any violence.
Unwilling to be straightforward, the host called the BLM leader a coward for refusing to take a firm stand. Newsome argued Bongino was railroading the conversation and refused to allow him to make his point as the activist tried to compare BLM protests to the government’s response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Bongino said there was no comparison to terrorists murdering people to police officers upholding the law in the face of rioters burning down cities over it.
When Newsome backed down again, Bongino, once again, called him a coward for backtracking and refusing to answer the question. That’s when the BLM activist took off the microphone out of frustration and ended the interview.
It seems Newsome can give it, but he can’t take it.
