TRANSCRIPT

What started out as riots over allegations of police brutality is turning into a full-on attack against Catholicism.

Marxist Black Lives Matter agitator Shaun King is calling for the destruction of Catholic images, saying, "All murals and stained glass windows of white Jesus and His European mother and their white friends should also come down." 

He adds: "They are a gross form of white supremacy. Created as tools of oppression. Racist propaganda."

It's the latest escalation of Marxist mobs under the banner of Black Lives Matter, as they continue to pull down statues of the Founding Fathers and Christopher Columbus.

Over the weekend, statues of St. Junípero Serra, founder of California's mission system, were pulled down in San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Activists are calling the saint a "genocidal monster," claiming he was responsible for a system of enslavement that decimated California native communities. 

They're also calling for the city of St. Louis, Missouri to be renamed, claiming its namesake, the 13th-century French king, was a "rabid anti-Semite." 

A petition by Umar Lee claims, "Nazi Germany gained inspiration and ideas from Louis IX as they embarked on a campaign of murderous genocide against the Jewish people." 

It also calls the monarch "vehemently Islamophobic" due to his participation in the Crusades.

President Trump has authorized the federal government to arrest anyone who destroys statues and monuments — they will face a 10-year prison sentence. 

In the United Kingdom, activists are complaining an image of St. Michael crushing the Devil is racist.

And in Poland, an image of the Queen of Poland, Our Lady of Częstochowa, was defaced with Black Lives Matter graffiti.

As the Marxist rage against Western civilization progresses, the Church will increasingly become the target.
