TERRORISM: Nets Ignore BLM Threatening to Bring ‘Bloodshed’ to NYC

terrorism:-nets-ignore-blm-threatening-to-bring-‘bloodshed’-to-nyc

The broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) routinely exercise their power to raise local stories to national attention when they decide it helps the narrative, or squash it if it doesn’t. So, obviously, Wednesday’s terroristic threats from New York City’s Black Lives Matter leader Hawk Newsome were conspicuously absent Thursday evening even though he had said his group would bring “riots,” “fire,” and “bloodshed” (emphasis his) if Mayor-elect Eric Adams (D) tried to bring back the “anti-crime” unit.

While they were ignoring how the socialist-extremist organization was threatening to launch terrorist attacks on New York City, ABC’s World News Tonight, the CBS Evening News, and NBC Nightly News were busy touting snow in the Midwest. They also lamented how an appeals court temporarily blocked the January 6 committee from accessing former President Trump’s documents from the National Archives.

And as we discussed on the NewsBusters Podcast earlier this week, their ability to manipulate the reach of local stories was especially true when they spring up from their backyards in New York City. ABC has literally covered traffic accidents and other incidental happens in the city as if they’re worth national attention.

So, it was left up to Fox News Channel and their show America Reports to do the end-run around their filter. “The head of New York’s Black Lives Matter movement promising ‘bloodshed,’ ‘riots,’ and ‘fire’ if the city’s incoming mayor, Eric Adams follows through on his plan to crack down on a violent crime,” announced co-anchor John Roberts.

“Now, BLM laid out their policy demands of Adams for helping the black community including the expectation that there will be police reform that disbands police unions and audits the NYPD,” reported correspondent Bryan Llenas, noting the group was “unsatisfied with the Mayor’s lack of guarantees.” Which led to this recorded, public threat:

NEWSOME (BLM Greater New York Chapter): If they think they are going back to their 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!

Llenas then recalled Newsome’s history of encouraging violence for his political cause. “Now, during the height of the violent unrest of the summer of 2020, Newsom said violence is sometimes necessary,” Llenas recounted.

BLM issued these threats because Adams was a retired NYPD officer who’s wanted to crack down on the out-of-control crime wave sweeping the city. And to draw attention to those local crime stories, Roberts and co-anchor Jacqui Heinrich read through a few heinous examples (Click “expand”):

ROBERTS: Even now – just a few examples of that crime: a 37-year-old man says he was beaten by a group of four people outside of a trendy Manhattan restaurant all because, he says, he asked them to stop harassing somebody.

HEINRICH: A woman beaten inside an elevator at a subway station. Her attacker slugging her, throwing her to the ground, and dragging her out by her feet.

ROBERTS: And a 62-year-old man hit with a baseball bat, stabbed, and slashed in midtown Manhattan not by one random criminal but instead by a gang of seven violent attackers.

HEINRICH: These stories and countless others are leaving New Yorkers begging for a bigger police presence…

As for Adams’ response to the threats, he seemed to downplay them. “We’re going to have the backs of our police officers, but we’re going to hold them accountable to do their jobs. And so, if fringe elements want to hurl rhetoric it like that, that’s silly to New Yorkers,” he said in a soundbite.

“Look, Jacqui, it is a tight rope for Adams. He ran as a moderate, pro-cop Democrat in a very progressive city while at the same time promising to hold those police accountable,” Llenas noted as he wrapped up. “He’s not even in office yet and already we have the fireworks between him and BLM.”

The obfuscation of Black Lives Matter’s terroristic threat was made possible because lucrative sponsorships from DIRECTV on ABC, Vicks on CBS, and Liberty Mutual on NBC. Their contact information is linked so you can tell them about the biased news they fund.

JOHN ROBERTS: The head of New York’s Black Lives Matter movement promising “bloodshed,” “riots,” and “fire” if the city’s incoming mayor, Eric Adams follows through on his plan to crack down on a violent crime.

JACQUI HEINRICH: Eric Adams, New York City’s mayor-elect and a former police captain himself, had pledged to bring back a version of the NYPD anti-crime unit. Under Bill de Blasio the NYPD disbanded that group last year and hundreds of officers reassigned amid protests to defund police. All the while, violent crime in the city has soared and it has not stopped.

ROBERTS: Even now – just a few examples of that crime: a 37-year-old man says he was beaten by a group of four people outside of a trendy Manhattan restaurant all because, he says, he asked them to stop harassing somebody.

HEINRICH: A woman beaten inside an elevator at a subway station. Her attacker slugging her, throwing her to the ground, and dragging her out by her feet.

ROBERTS: And a 62-year-old man hit with a baseball bat, stabbed, and slashed in midtown Manhattan not by one random criminal but instead by a gang of seven violent attackers.

HEINRICH: These stories and countless others are leaving New Yorkers begging for a bigger police presence, but the Black Lives Matter leader says, if the old NYPD comes back, they’re taking to the streets. (…) But first, we want to go to Bryan Llenas in New York City with this story for us. Hey, Bryan.

BRYAN LLENAS: Jacqui, good afternoon. Despite the threat, New York City’s mayor-elect, Eric Adams vowed today that New York will, quote, “Not be a city of rioting and will not burn.” Yesterday, Adams met with the co-founder, Hawk Newsome, of Black Lives Matter chapter here in greater New York. It was a half-hour meeting, it was cordial, and it was live-streamed on Instagram.

Now, BLM laid out their policy demands of Adams for helping the black community including the expectation that there will be police reform that disbands police unions and audits the NYPD. But unsatisfied with the Mayor’s lack of guarantees, the BLM leader, Hawk Newsome made this threat right after the meeting.

HAWK NEWSOME (BLM Greater New York Chapter): If they think they are going back to their 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!

LLENAS: Now, during the height of the violent unrest of the summer of 2020, Newsom said violence is sometimes necessary. Here’s how Adams responded today to the threat.

MAYOR-ELECT ERIC ADAMS (D-NYC): We’re going to have the backs of our police officers, but we’re going to hold them accountable to do their jobs. And so, if fringe elements want to hurl rhetoric it like that, that’s silly to New Yorkers.

LLENAS: Adams accused of Newsome of, quote, “showboating” and said while he downplayed the organization as not representative of the entire Black Lives Matter movement.

HEINRICH: Wow, that sounds incredible, Bryan. What is the reaction – or what is the criticism rather of Black Lives Matter’s towards Eric Adams? What’s their biggest problem with him?

LLENAS: Well, ultimately, it’s a fact that, look. Eric Adams is a retired NYPD captain. On top of that, he’s somebody who campaigned on bringing back the anti-gang, anti-criminal plainclothes police units that were disbanded in 2020.

Now, Newsome and BLM opposed these units saying they are responsible for deaths like that of Eric Garner. But look, Eric Adams, today defended his policy. Listen.

ADAMS: If the bad guys know that the only thing they have to look after – out for are those in blue and white cars, we’re at a disadvantage. You need the unpredictable aspect of policing and public safety and that the unmarked car. That keeps the bad guys off balance.

LLENAS: Adams obviously arguing that he believes plainclothes units are necessary to fight the surge in crime in this city.

Look, Jacqui, it is a tight rope for Adams. He ran as a moderate pro-cop Democrat in a very progressive city while at the same time promising to hold those police accountable. He’s not even in office yet and already we have the fireworks between him and BLM. Jacqui.

HEINRICH: Wow. Incredible. Bryan Llenas, live in New York City for us. Thank you.
