Catholic Priest Attempts to Defend St. Louis Statue from Further Leftist Vandalism Leftist Mob Threatens to Take Cathedral Next! (Video)
The Gateway Pundit ^ | 6/27/20 | Jim Hoft

Earlier this week the Gateway Pundit announced a prayer rally on Saturday at the iconic St. Louis Statue on Art Hill in Forest Park.

We planned the rally because there is currently a petition by local leftist and radical Umar Lee to remove this beautiful landmark in St. Louis City. There is also a movement to rename the city because St. Louis was “Islamophobic.”

And like clockwork local Islamist Umar Lee and the left smeared TGP and Christians who planned on attending the prayer rally as “white nationalists.”

On Friday, in the most egregious attack on this rally yet, St. Louis City Treasurer Tishaura Jones posted several tweets attacking Mayor Krewson and labeling local Christians “KKK” for holding a prayer rally to save the St. Louis statue in Forest Park.

Several of Christians turned out and at least three priests were in the crowd.

At one point Rev. Stephen Shumacher, a priest with the St. Louis Archdiocese took a microphone and started to tell the crowd about the life of St.Louis. Of course, none of the protest mob had any idea why they were there or who they were protesting.

The title is a little misleading. In the video it sounded like a lone voice that expressed intent to take the cathedral eventually.

So although egregious it is not as agregious as the headline makes it sound.

Cities ought to defend and protect their valuable statues from lawless thugs without hesitation. Not one statue should be removed without lawful deliberation, and the insurrection needs to be STAMPED out.

Well, how about that. When is this going to stop? What is it going to take to stop it? I am not a keyboard warrior boasting what I would do, but I just don't see an end to this until one side is crushed. When will the residents of St. Louis, or any city or state, who value civilization finally stand up for it?

Whoever leads the absolute defeat of BLM and ANTIFA’s anarchist insurrection ought to have a double sized bronze statue made of them and have their bust chiseled into Mount Rushmore.
