    "Everything wrong with America is manifested in Trump. The hunger for power, the vile derision of people who don’t look like you, the cruelty, the privilege, the gleeful ignorance, and mendacious narcissism. Our revulsion at Trump is causing Americans to ask: How did we get to this place? And how do we get out? That will take time and hard work by well-intentioned people from every corner of American society."

    They are the put-upon here. And of course,

    Leftist Lunatics Dox and Threaten Armed St. Louis Couple Who Protected Their Home From Black Lives Matter Mob During Protest
    A St. Louis couple is being doxed and threatened on Twitter after making it clear they were willing to defend their home as “protesters” came by.

    The couple stood armed outside their beautiful home as the mob marched by shouting. . . .


    After a video of them defending their property was posted to Twitter, people began calling for their names, address, and businesses to posted online — which they were.
    From a tweet apparently unavailable:

    Someone identify these people. I don’t know the area. Get an address. I’ll help.

    Sue them, ruin their businesses, help their employees sabotage their capital, call their kids, call their family members, call their country club— use capitalism for the weapon it’s designed to be.

    — kyle rezac-dennis (@krezacdennis) June 29, 2020
    Within minutes, the couple’s names, businesses and address were posted to the platform. The Gateway Pundit has opted not to publish that information.

    I hope someone finds out who this douche is, and does the same to him.

    One report I saw (NY Post) referred to an earlier magazine spread, and gives you a good idea why this couple, both attorneys, would defend their home with guns, and why it's good that they did.

    A decades-long renovation returns a Midwestern palazzo to its original glory


    The article is prefaced by a sad editor's note:
    Editor's note: This story has been updated to remove the address of the home.
    When attorneys Mark and Patty McCloskey bought their home in February of 1988, it was the color of cigarette ashes. Still dirty from the days when St. Louis lay under a blanket of coal smoke, the home’s Carthage marble facing “had quarter-inch-thick carbon on it in some places,” Mark says. The two Carrara marble urns out front, copies of a pair at the Vatican, had turned black, obscuring Neptune and his attending dolphins. The imported Caen limestone in the entry hall had been painted battleship gray, and the intricate wood carvings in the dining room (which, as Mark points out, are so detailed, you can see the birds’ individual claws), were smothered in layers of white and robin’s-egg blue. What had once been St. Louis’ most dazzling mansion now felt more like a haunted house. It didn’t help that the first time Mark and Patty turned the key in the door, the temperature had fallen to 4 below zero and the house didn’t have a functioning furnace. The prior owner had heated the house with 48 kerosene space heaters that had since been removed. . . .
    “When we first bought the house and I was here on the weekend working on it, I saw two big black cars pull up in front, and a bunch of people get out, including one really old lady,” Mark remembers. “This was probably 1989, when she would have been about 90 years old. She came in with her attendants and some relatives and walked through the house when it was still empty. I asked her if the rumor that we’d been told about the ballroom was true, and she said yes.”

    One Sunday morning, Mark decided to also reach out to Mary Faust, who’d married Audrey’s brother Leicester. He spoke with her secretary and then, after identifying himself as one of the new owners of the home, was put on the line with Mrs. Faust. They talked for three hours. “She invited us out to see her. She said, ‘What are you going to do with it?’ I said, ‘We’re going to restore it.’ She said, ‘It’s impossible. No one can afford these days to restore it.’” Patty nods: “She almost didn’t want to have somebody try, because she was afraid it was going to come up short.”

    But that didn’t stop Mrs. Faust from sharing photographs of the house with the McCloskeys to help them track down the original furniture and art (including Portrait of Anthony van Opstal, by Anthony van Dyck, c. 1632), or make decisions about how to move forward on the renovation.

    For example, the McCloskeys restored all of the French silk damask wallcoverings but on the second floor went with a softer wheat color rather than the original dark red. When Mrs. Wallace died, Mrs. Faust helped them comb through Selkirk’s listings so that they could buy back objects original to the house. But, they say, things sometimes magically showed up, too—like the time a friend in Atlanta called from an antiques fair to tell them about “this guy who’s been trying to sell these books of photographs of a house in St. Louis” that turned out to be big folios of the house. Or the little gold-and-silver–framed portrait of the three youngest Busch girls that randomly surfaced at an auction; it’s a reproduction of a painting that hangs in the house. Of note is the fact that virtually all of the art, furniture, and tapestries are authentic 14th to 17th-century antiques collected by the couple.

    Mark says it’s remarkable that they’ve mostly only had to replace art and furniture rather than fixtures—after Anna and Edward died in 1935, the house sat empty for a decade, but nothing was stolen or stripped out. The McCloskeys have had fun seeking out objects original to the house as well as filling it with their own antiques, including a rare 1560 stipo a bambocci carved wooden cabinet made in Genoa and a Louis XIII homme-debout (“standing man”) armoire, so named because, during the Reign of Terror, a gentleman could hide inside one.

    In fact, often the biggest challenge was getting rid of things—smog patina, bad paint, weird metal garage doors installed between the solarium and ballroom. For the first year or so, cranes surrounded the house as contractors experimented with a mixture of high-pressure water and sandblasting to get the soot out of the pores of the stone. Then the McCloskeys hired a professional sandblaster to clean the gray paint off the stone of the foyer. At first, the blaster balked, fearing that it was plaster. After Mark encouraged him to experiment in an inconspicuous place under the staircase, he relented.

    Now the Caen limestone’s back to its original rosy gold, the perfect complement to a perfect copy of the lampada di Galileo in the Pisa Cathedral. It hangs from the top of the 45-foot-high rotunda dome, in front of a curved double staircase of marble leading to the second- and third-floor landings. The second floor rests on six 14-foot-tall Brescia Violetta marble columns; the third is held up by a series of 12-foot columns and pilasters decorated in a 17th-century Tuscan technique, scagliola, in which colored plaster is layered and polished to mimic marble. The art glass in the rotunda dome is newly restored, and its ceiling features four 28-foot-long classical murals on canvas. “They’re by a guy named Thomas,” Mark says. “We don’t know if that’s a first or last name—we found an article from the period that described him that way, so apparently he was so famous, he didn’t need an introduction.”

    A Busch relative told the McCloskeys, “‘There’s a Medici house in Florence where you come in the front door and it’s exactly like this,’” Patty says, “but we haven’t found it yet.” Nor have they been able to verify that the bronze balustrade on the staircase was really forged on site, though that’s the rumor. “One story I did have confirmed was, we’d heard they’d brought in a village of Italian stonemasons that lived in a tent city in the side yard while they finished the stonework,” Mark says. “We ran into a guy at Shaw Marble who said his grandfather was one of those Italians, and that was a true story.” . . .
    It's worth a look.

    This is precisely the sort of thing the Left mob would destroy.

    The article says the house sat empty for a decade, but nothing was stolen or damaged. Now, I believe they'd better hire 'round-the-clock security for the foreseeable future.

    So where are people getting this shit from? Their teachers, of course.

    Democrats own this. They cannot stop.



    tweet

    It appears the tweet has been taken down. It's from the official twitter account of the Democratic National Committee. It's text:

    Trump has disrespected Native communities time and again. He’s attempted to limit their voting rights and blocked critical pandemic relief. Now he’s holding a rally glorifying white supremacy at Mount Rushmore — a region once sacred to tribal communities.
