Jerry Taylor, president and co-founder of the Niskanen Center, threatened a couple brandishing guns at protesters outside a St. Louis home.
“If I were in that march, and these racist lunatics were waiving guns at me, I’d like to think I’d rush them and beat their brains in. And I wouldn’t apologize for it for one goddam second,” he wrote in a tweet that has since been deleted.
The couple, according to KSDK News, waved the guns at a group of protesters marching to the St. Louis mayor’s home and calling for her resignation after they breached the neighborhood gate. The video was retweeted by President Trump, but later deleted.
