A BLACK Lives Matter leader threatened to “burn the White House down” and put police “in f***ing graves” during a speech on Saturday night.
The heated speech came amid another night of demonstrations in the capital city – and across the nation – with an increased wave of energy after the shooting of Jacob Blake.
Video showed the leader as he spoke in a heated voice to a crowd of protesters on Black Lives Matter Plaza.
“Im at the point where I’m ready to put these police in a f***ing grave,” he said. “I’m at the point where I want to burn the f***ing White House down.”
He said he wants to “take the fight” to senators and members of Congress – and if they “don’t hear us,” they will “burn them the f**k down.”
The organizer said he “f**ks cops up” in different cities where demonstrations are held.
“The same way I bust police in the head in New York, I bust police in the head in DC,” he said.
“Don’t get on this f***ing front line if you ain’t gonna f***ing fight,” he said.
“Don’t get on this front line if you ain’t gonna take no hit.”
He later told protesters: “Don’t get on this front line when the police f***ing push up, you push back.”
“If you gon get on this front line, ain’t no racist-a**, nasty-a**, punk-a** f***ing police is pushing up, you push the f**k up,” he told the crowd.
President Trump condemned the video, as he shared in during a Sunday morning tweet storm.
“Disgraceful Anarchists. We are watching them closely, but stupidly protected by the Radical Left Dems!” Trump tweeted.
Later on Sunday, Trump called for the DC Mayor to use cops to arrest “agitators” causing unrest in the capital.
Overnight in the capital city, police cleared the area near the White House with chemical spray and flash-bangs, The Washington Post reported.
Some fires were set across the city, and police and demonstrators clashed.
Officials told The Post that arrests were made, although it was not immediately clear how many or what charges were filed.
Demonstrations have continued across the nation for months following the death of George Floyd, as protesters call for an end to systemic racism and police brutality.
Although demonstrations have been largely peaceful, some have escalated or erupted with violence – like when a gunman fired shots in Kenosha, Wisconsin on Tuesday, killing two men and injuring another.
Amid demonstrations in Portland, Oregon on Saturday, a pro-cop man was shot dead.
Police did not immediately link the man’s death to violence in protests, and said a homicide investigation is ongoing.
