Incoming Mayor of New York City Eric Adams directly rebuked threats from Black Lives Matter and other organizations during a speech Thursday night; saying “anarchists” have no place in the Big Apple.
“We’re not going to surrender to those who are saying ‘We’re going to burn down New York’,” Adams said.
The local Black Lives Matter chapter threatened “blood” in the streets if Adams brought-back an elite unit inside the NYPD specifically charged with fighting violent crime.

“We’re not going to have a city where anarchists come from outside our city and go into a community such as Queens and destroy the community for their own selfish needs and desires,” Adams added.
“I burn candles and say prayers and Hail Marys that those other characters were not elected to be mayor right now,” Adams said. “People who were talking about disarming police, running out business people from our city.”

“New York BLM co-founder Hawk Newsome debated the plan for a return to tougher policing with Adams during a contentious sit-down at Brooklyn Borough Hall Wednesday that was livestreamed on Instagram,” reports the New York Post.
“Although Adams found common ground with the activists on plans to fight poverty in the black community, the former NYPD captain said he’ll be reinstating a revamped version of the undercover anti-crime unit that was disbanded at the height of widespread police protests last year,” adds the newspaper.

“If they think they are going back to the old ways of policing then we’re going to take to the streets again,” New York BLM co-founder Hawk Newsome said outside Borough Hall.
“There will be riots. There will be fire, and there will be bloodshed,” he threatened.
“To ignore that history and say you’re bringing it back means that he’s tone deaf,” Newsome told The Post.
“We will be at his front door, we will be at Gracie Mansion, we will be in the streets, if he allows these police to abuse us,” Newsome said.
“I am not threatening anyone. I am just saying that it’s a natural response to aggressive oppression, people will react.”
