Host Laura Ingraham asked Giuliani to comment on recent “attacks on our history and the statues” across America.
Giuliani said that Antifa and Black Lives Matter activists, communists and their allies are executing manifestos that they wrote four to five years ago.
“They want to destroy our government, they wrote then they want to do away with police, they want to empty out the prisons,” he said.
“They want to internationalize our government, they want to do away with our system of courts and they want to take your property away and give it to other people.”

The lawyer continued that such actions are an “orchestrated effort” and no longer tied to justice for Floyd, which “ended a long time ago.”
“That didn’t happen accidentally. That’s part of a plan and we better wake up to it and we better stop being silly,” he said.
“People who say they are favorable to Black Lives Matter—Black Lives Matter wants to come and take your house away from you, they want to take your property away from you.”
Giuliani concluded that members of the movement want to let “all criminals out of prison” and that they are “anti-American” and “organized anarchists” backed with a lot of money.
People have been protesting racial inequality under the Black Lives Matter movement since the death of George Floyd, who died after former Minnesota cop Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck during an arrest.
