A “protester” who calls himself Ace Burns was arrested hours after threatening to burn down the Jewish-run Diamond District in New York City on Saturday.

The masked man made the ominous threats during a live TV interview while bragging about his tattoo, which read “FTP.”

“I’m a leader of this FTP movement,” Ace Burns boasted to Fox News reporter Jacqui Heinrich. “It could mean a lot of things. It could mean Free the People. Or it could also mean Fire to Property. And that’s very possible.”

The thug continued: “Today I’m leading a demonstration from Barclays Center at 6 p.m. to City Hall. That’s the first stop. We’re hoping [Mayor] de Blasio and [Governor Andrew] Cuomo come out and talk to us and give the youth some direction. But if they don’t, 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.”

Keep in mind that the mainstream media have repeatedly insisted that the nationwide demonstrations for George Floyd were all “peaceful protests,” even as multiple Democrat-run cities burned to the ground.

Because the thug was stupid enough to provide his exact location and the time he’d there, the New York Police Department had no trouble finding and arresting him.

An NYPD Twitter account stated: “Earlier tonight, a man wearing this mask threatened, in a live Fox News interview, to burn Manhattan’s Diamond District down. Within hours, we identified the man and took him in to be interviewed.”

An hour later, the New York Police Department arrested a different “peaceful protester” for threatening to attack police officers with an ax.

That thug was carrying multiple knives in his backpack. These are the “peaceful protesters” that the left-wing media lionizes as heroes.

Fox News weekend anchor Eric Shawn was stunned by the on-air arson threat spewed by “Ace Burns.”

“Those are outrageous words to say,” Shawn said. “Basically, that person was suggesting that they plan to [torch] the Diamond District, which is run by orthodox Jews here in New York City.”

To underscore how different Fox News journalists are from the leftist activists at CNN and MSNBC, Shawn immediately condemned the violent threat.

“We condemn that type of language here on the Fox News channel,” Shawn said. “Someone saying that certainly should be called out.”

At CNN and MSNBC, on-air personalities have repeatedly run cover for violent rioters and looters and fanned the flames of their racial resentment to stoke a race war.

Despite openly siding with the rioters and downplaying their violence, CNN’s Atlanta headquarters was vandalized and destroyed last weekend by the very same looters that the left-wing network constantly inflames with its nonstop race-baiting.

An angry mob gathered outside the CNN office in Atlanta, smashing windows and spray-painting over the CNN sign while shouting “F*ck CNN!”

Several thugs also hurled exploding firecrackers into the lobby. At one point, rioters jumped on top of the CNN sign while triumphantly holding a “Black Lives Matter” flag. There’s a famous novel about this phenomenon. It’s called “Frankenstein.”
