Jerry Taylor, president, and co-founder of the Niskanen Center, not only threatened the DC homeowners that protected their private property but called for extreme violence.
“If I were in that march, and these racist lunatics were waving 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.
Not only did Jerry Taylor delete his tweets he’s now made his account private so unless you follow him no one can see what he posts (as of the writing of his post).
The couple waved guns at the group after the marchers destroyed a gate and entered onto clearly marked private property.
Taylor continued his attacks on the couple, saying they “should have been arrested and locked up” for their actions.
“A person believing that ‘Black Lives Matter,’ and willing to legally and peaceably march to that effect, should not have to face a racist gun to the head.”
Taylor then encouraged Antifa to continue violent attacks.
“Yeah, excuse me if I root for #antifa to punch these idiots out. Guilty as charged. I know who’s side I’m on,” he said.
Taylor then continued expressing his support for the Antifa movement.
“In the world of ‘fascists’ and ‘anti-fascists,’ I’m with the latter,” he wrote.
Taylor deleted a lot of his tweets after facing backlash from numerous users on both sides of the political world.
“Do you think it was totally unreasonable for the homeowners to fear for their safety, given some of the events that have unfolded during the protests?” journalist Cathy Young countered.

Leftists aren’t even hiding anymore, if Taylor was President Twitter would have suspended his account.
Much to Mr. Taylor’s disappointment, police are investigating what happened in St. Louis but not against the couple. Police are investigating the incident as a case of trespassing and fourth-degree assault by intimidation by the demonstrators.
