Eric Adams was far from the ideal candidate for the left.
He is a former police officer and is a far cry, at least on the surface, of what we have seen in New York City as of late.
He even openly stated that he is “conservative on crime,” a statement that did not sit well with Black Lives Matters leaders.
Get Ready for Rioting
Hawk Newsome, a local BLM leader, was unhappy with Adams announcing he would be tough on crime.
After meeting with Adams, Newsome stated, “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.”
Chivona Newsome, a co-founder of the group, added, “We will shut down City Hall, and we will give him hell and make it a nightmare.”
Now, I don’t know about you, but that sounds like it would fit the definition of a domestic terror threat, at least as it has been defined by Democrats in recent years.
So, where is the outrage because you better believe if a group like the Proud Boys made the same type of statement, Democrats would be crying from the high heavens to lock them all up.
