St. Louis’s Democrat mayor, Lyda Krewson, faces growing calls for her resignation for inadvertently giving Black Lives Matter extremists a taste of their own medicine.
After meeting with BLM extremists outside of St. Louis City Hall on Friday, the mayor held a COVID-themed Facebook live stream. Near the end of the stream, she received a viewer question about her meeting with the extremists earlier that afternoon.
“The conversation wasn’t really a two-way conversation — I’ll be honest with you — because there was a very loud response from the demonstrators,” she replied. “And so they … presented some papers to me about how they wanted the budget to be spent.”
She then proceeded to read those “papers” — which were in fact letters from local BLM extremists — and for some inexplicable reason, she decided to also read out the names of the people who’d sent the letters, as well as their home addresses.
Watch (Disclaimer: Names/Addresses have been removed):
The live stream triggered a MASSIVE backlash, prompting the mayor to delete the original FB video and issue an apology.
“Tonight, I would like to apologize for identifying individuals who presented letters and comment cards to me at City Hall as I was answering a routine question during one of my updates earlier today,” she wrote on FB.
“While this is public information, never did I intend to cause distress or harm to anyone. The post has been removed and again, I sincerely apologize.”
As you probably know from following my Facebook page, for more than three months now I have been doing tri-weekly…
But it was too late. As multiple past examples demonstrate, members of the Black Lives Matter cult and religion have no room for forgiveness in their dark hearts.
By Sunday morning, a Change.org petition calling for Krewson’s resignation boasted nearly 32,000 signatures, which amounts to about a tenth of St. Louis’s population.
The petition was started by local BLM extremist Ohun Ashe.
“St. Louis mayor just went live telling the full names addresses of people wanting to defund the police [and] where they want the money to go,” Ashe tweeted late Friday. “Yall she just put a hit out on people. This is a sick and twisted abuse of power and political terrorism.”
In a second tweet, she unveiled the petition and asked her followers to sign it.

Other far-left groups also issued statements.
“To be clear, it is shocking and misguided for Mayor Lyda Krewson of St. Louis, to broadcast the addresses of those who dare to express a different viewpoint on an issue of public concern,” the Missouri chapter of the gender-denying American Civil Liberties Union reportedly said.
“It serves no apparent purpose beyond intimidation. We are stronger when we foster open dialogue. The chilling of debate should bother everyone, no matter whether they agree or disagree with the mayor on this particular issue.”

.@LydaKrewson giving out names and addresses of protesters is dangerous and irresponsible. She should probably resign tonight. Her judgment is between 0 and -10.

It’s a huge deal. You should resign.

This wasn’t an “oops” moment. This was dangerous, and demonstrated no resident can trust you. You gotta resign.

What you did was vindictive. Your job is to listen to community members, not put them in danger. Shame on you. You know what you did. You must resign. @LydaKrewson

Stunning number of white women showing themselves this month, spitting on people, throwing groceries at store clerks, all for being asked to wear a fucking mask in a pandemic.
And then you have @LydaKrewson DOXXING her own constituents.
Ladies: We see you for who you are.

Yet neither Ashe, the increasingly radicalized ACLU nor any of the others seen above have spoken out about underage children being doxxed and publicly shamed by BLM extremists such as actress Skai Jackson.
“In support of the Black Lives Matter movement, Skai is using her large following to expose racist teenagers (and some adults) by posting damning receipts sent in by fans to her Twitter feed,” Cosmopolitan reported earlier this month.
“In her tweets, she calls out the perpetrators by first and last names and tags the schools they go to, urging for the institutions to take real action.”
What she’s been doing is no different than what Krewson did, save for the fact that Krewson doxxed grown adult extremists, whereas Jackson has been doxxing children for the sin of posting allegedly “racist” content to social media.
Of course, hypocrisy and double standards are nothing new for the Black Lives Matter cult and religion.
