Protester In New York City Appears To Threaten To Burn Down The Diamond District If Leaders Do Not Meet Demands

By Daily Wire, June 6, 2020

A protester in New York City who appeared on Fox News on live television Saturday afternoon appeared to threaten to burn down the Diamond District in New York City if top Democratic leaders in the state do not meet the demands of the protesters.

“You know, I’m a leader of this FTP movement,” the man began. “It means a lot of things. It can mean free the people, it can mean for the people, it could also mean fire to property – and that’s very possible.”

“Today, I’m leading a demonstration from Barclay’s Center at 6 p.m. to City Hall, and that’s the first stop – and we’re hoping [New York City Mayor Bill] De Blasio and [New York Governor Andrew] Cuomo come out and talk to us and give the youth some direction,” the man continued. “But if they don’t, then [the] next stop is the Diamond District. And gasoline, thanks to Trump, is awfully cheap. So we’re giving them a chance right now to do the right thing.”

Fox News host Eric Shawn condemned the remarks that were made on live television, saying, “Those are outrageous words to say. Basically that person was basically suggesting that they plan to go to the diamond district, which is run basically by Orthodox Jews here in New York City – certainly hope that is not the case and we do not endorse – in fact, we condemn that type of language here on the Fox News channel. Someone saying that certainly should be called out in terms of any type of potential threat of any sort that we just heard live from someone who interviewed here on this channel.”

Political commentators and lawmakers expressed disgust over the comments and suggested that more law enforcement was needed in the area to help maintain safety.

Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) wrote on Twitter: “This is a disgusting threat and exactly why the National Guard should already have been sent to NYC days ago to back up the NYPD and help maintain order.”

New York Post Editor Sohrab Ahmari tweeted: “Live on Fox, a BLM leader just threatened to burn down New York’s Diamond District. If Blas and Cuo don’t engage with us, he said, we will head to the Diamond District, ‘and thanks to President Trump, gasoline is cheap.’ This is dead-serious. It’s time for a decisive crackdown.”
