A “blueprint” for the way forward for the Black Lives Movement will be unveiled in Times Square in New York on Sunday at 12 p.m. and delivered to communities across the country, according to a leader of the New York BLM movement. Hawk Newsome spoke with Fox News about the “blueprint” of the group, and it’s frightening. He discussed having a force like the “Black Panthers or Nation of Islam” to help fight against the “war on the poor” and “anti-blackness.”
It’s interesting that Democrats and activists have suddenly been pushing to “Defund the Police” (see below) and now this? It’s almost like this is coordinated like everything else with the left.
The New York leader of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement made several stunning statements claiming the group will have an armed branch of “peace officers” in their war on the police.
After the death of George Floyd, the BLM New York chapter Chairman Newsome described in shocking terms of plans to be like the Black Panthers by matching fire with fire:
“We’re talking about self-defense. We’re talking about defending our communities. You know what it’s like to see a taser pointed at a 7-year-old, you know what it’s like to see a 67-year-old black woman pepper-sprayed and pushed to the ground?”
“We are preparing and training our people to defend our communities.”
Newsome said there was a meeting where BLM discussed a “pathway forward” where a plan called “Black Opts” will help to liberate black people:
“We have black Special Forces officers advising us, and we will teach and train people in our communities, the Black Opts department of Black Opportunities.”
Newsome confirmed that BLM “peace officers” would be armed and open carry guns.
“We pattern ourselves after the Black Panthers, after the Nation of Islam, we believe that we need an army to defend ourselves. We will build and train peace officers to keep the peace in our communities, to defend our communities, to keep our communities safe.”
Newsome spoke of the “war on the poor” and “anti-blackness”:
“When we start talking about black opportunities and building our war chest to defend ourselves from the war on the poor. .. to defend ourselves against the war that is anti-blackness in America, then people will have to meet a certain criteria.”
THE “DEFUND THE POLICE” MOVEMENT IS SPREADING TO DEMOCRATIC-RUN CITIES:
The “Defund the Police” movement has been gaining steam on social media. Notable Democrats and even Hillary Clinton’s former press secretary got in on promoting the movement:
The Minneapolis City Council is all for it, and Hollywood celebrities are also pushing for a ban on law enforcement.
It’s hard to believe, but with the move in Blue states to a “light touch” on criminals and now the George Floyd case, it’s believable. That “soft touch” didn’t work out very well for Democrats during the riots, but the left still wants the cops gone. Even though about 10k people have been arrested across the country during the riots, many of those have been released with no bail due to the “light touch” on enforcement.
Hollywood leftists have been outspoken on the movement by signing a “Defund the Police” letter:

After Hillary Clinton’s former press secretary tweeted out about the movement today, he’s been slammed on social media:
The movement is getting pushback from notable people. James Woods advised the “Defund the Police” supporters to opt-out of protection from the police:
Why don’t you folks who want to “defund the police” simply “opt out” from police protection? You could all send notarized letters to your local departments that you no longer wish to participate. Police costs would be less. Taxpayers would save money. Win/win for everybody! #Fool https://t.co/e3iXqHFs0I

Senator Ted Cruz:
Hillary’s press secretary makes the 2020 Dem agenda clear:
“Defund the police.”
Take your guns.
Cheer on the rioters & looters who burn your city.
It’s like Mad Max at Thunderdome, brought home to America. https://t.co/mlVZWI2Pf1

Now we have a move by Black Lives Matter to have “peace officers” running around enforcing against the police. A spokesperson for the effort described their purpose:
“We pattern ourselves after the Black Panthers, after the Nation of Islam, we believe that we need an arm to defend ourselves, We will build and train peace officers to keep the peace in our communities, to defend our communities, to keep our communities safe.”
One like Black Panthers, Nation of Islam, and the other our police force. Frightening.
