Counter-cultural protests continued into the weekend around the country, including the heartland city of St. Louis where an angry mob of Black Lives Matter demonstrators threatened a Catholic priest and attacked at least one person who attended a prayer rally.
At a demonstration sponsored by The Gateway Pundit in support of preserving the St. Louis Statue on Art Hill in Forest Park, police had to separate BLM counter-protesters who attempted to disrupt the group as they prayed with Catholic priests.
About a dozen St. Louis police officers have formed a line between those saying prayers and those who want the King Louis IX statue removed. pic.twitter.com/9XJTkHHszf— Joel Currier (@joelcurrier) June 27, 2020

It was irresponsible for the Mayor to publicize the names and addresses of her constituents, who were exercising their constitutional right to free speech and to petition their government. 2/— Tishaura O. Jones (@tishaura) June 27, 2020
This is a portion of the mayor's Facebook live on Friday. Audio where she reads names and addresses has been edited out. Watch below.
