Dan Bongino, political commentator, and a former police officer had a chance to sit down and speak with Hawk Newsome after the BlackLivesMatter leader called for ‘bloodshed’ in the streets. Newsome was outraged that New York plans to bring back plainclothes officers and apparently thinks that violence is the appropriate response.

I say ‘apparently’, because Newsome refused to give a straight answer when Bongino simply asked him if he condones rioting.

“If they think they are going back to the old ways of policing, then we’re going to take to the streets again,” Newsome said Wednesday after the meeting. “There will be riots, there will be fire, and there will be bloodshed.”

Things only became more headed from there:

“You don’t want riots, right? You don’t want riots, correct? And violence? I just want to get you on the record,” Bongino asked Newsome during the interview.

“I’m going on the record right now. As Dr. [Martin Luther] King said, riots are the voice of the unheard,” Newsome responded. “It’s a natural occurrence that if people continue to be traumatized and oppressed they will lash out.”

Bongino gave Newsom another opportunity to answer:

“Do you condemn riots and burning down buildings after a police use-of-force incident you don’t like?” he asked.

“No. What I’ll say is: I understand when a police officer unjustifiably kills someone, why people lash out. I understand that completely,” Newsome responded. “I’m not going to condemn, nor am I going to condone it.”

“Isn’t that cowardly?” Bongino fired back. “‘I’m not going to condemn it, but I’m not going to condone it — so I don’t want to take a stand’? … You seem to talk a lot of junk and then when I put you on the spot you won’t answer a damn question. Do you condone violence or you condemn violence? You’re all over the place. Just condemn violence and burning of buildings down. How hard is this?”

“OK, I’ll give you this,” Newsome said. “I don’t condone it, I don’t promote it, but I will not condemn it.”

“Man, that’s just cowardly, man. That’s just cowardly,” Bongino pointed out.

Newsom was not able to have the last word so the BLM leader boiled over, pulled out his earpiece, and walked off.


Bongino clearly got under Newsome’s skin just trying to get him to answer a simple question. I say that if you don’t condemn rioting, violence, and looting you’re condoning it by default. Am I wrong? Let me know in the comments below.
