WATCH: Violence Breaks Out As Priest Stands Between Protesters And St. Louis Statue

If we're going to be perfectly honest about everything that's currently going on in America right now, what we have here is a war against remembering our history, and a war on statues that remind us of what our past was like.

They should serve to remind us what to do and what not to do as well as how we've overcome so much.

Protesters around the world have targeted historic statues from various times in history.

Now, it's not even just confederate statues as it was when they started. They're tearing down all statues of things which they even think might be bad.

In St. Louis Missouri, protesters gathered around the statue of St. Louis the IX and vandalized the statue.

Reports of assault have also come in, according to the St. Louis Post, while anti-protesters surrounded the statue in prayer. One priest attempted to reason with the protesters before offering a history lesson on St. Louis IX and his lack of involvement in civil rights issues. Rev. Schumacher said:

“St. Louis was a man who had authority thrust upon him, he didn’t do anything to earn it. You’re right, he didn’t do anything to earn it,” started the priest. “What did he do with that authority? Do you know what he did? Go down to the St. Louis Cathedral, and you’ll see some of the history that St. Louis did.”

One of the protesters shouted, “Eventually we’re taking that, too, though,” referencing the cathedral.

“St. Louis was a man who willed to use his kingship to do good for his people,” Rev. Schumacher said, triggering angered shouts from protesters.

“He died in Tunisia,” one of the protesters shouted, drawing an alleged connection to Africans.

“St. Louis had nothing to do with Africans, okay,” the Catholic leader responded to protesters.

“Do you know who lived in Tunisia in the 1100s?” he posed, “Arabs. … and the Arabs had killed all the Africans in Tunisia in the 700s.”

“In the 700s, Arab Muslims conquered the Holy Land,” Rev. Schumacher continued, “Christians did not fight back against that. … the Crusades happened beginning in 1095, after the Turks conquered the Holy Land.”

During the same intense face-off, some protesters marked the statue with chalk, calling for its destruction, reported Currier.

“This man [wrote] ‘Demonter Demanteler’ on the Louie IX base. That translates roughly to remove/take down,” Currier wrote.

The St. Louis Archdiocese released a statement defending the state of St. Louis IX:

“The history of the statue of St. Louis, the King is one founded in piety and reverence before God, and for non-believers, respect for one’s neighbor,” the statement said. “The reforms that St. Louis implemented in French government focused on impartial justice, protecting the rights of his subjects, steep penalties for royal officials abusing power, and a series of initiatives to help the poor.”

“King Louis IX’s renowned work in charity helped elevate him to Sainthood,” the St. Louis Archdiocese continued. “His daily suppers were shared with numerous beggars, whom he invited to the royal table. On many evenings, he would not let them leave before he washed their feet. He personally paid to feed more than 100 poor Parisians every day. His care for the sick was equally moving; St. Louis frequently ministered to lepers. He also created a number of hospitals, including one for the blind and another for ex-prostitutes.”
