NYC Protester Threatens Violence Live on Fox News: “Gasoline is Cheap”

One of the self-professed leaders of the “peaceful protests” threatened violence in New York City’s Diamond District – an area populated with many stores owned by Jewish businessmen.

“Today, I’m giving a demonstration from Barclay’s Center at 6 p.m. to City Hall, and that’s the first stop — and we’re hoping [Mayor] De Blasio and [Gov.] Cuomo come out and talk to us and give the youth some direction,” a man named “Ace Burns”  told Fox News reporter Jacqui Heinrich.

“But if they don’t, then [the] next stop is the Diamond District,” he said, referring to a block on Manhattan’s 47th Street known for jewelry shops. “And gasoline, thanks to Trump, is awfully cheap. So we’re giving them a chance right now to do the right thing.”

The NYPD said it “identified the took the man [and] took him in to be interviewed.” There’s no word if he was arrested.

Fox News Channel’s Eric Shawn condemned the threat.

“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,” Shawn said.
