Edit: Tucker Carlson passionately calls for a leader to oppose Marxist inspired civil unrest. Naturally, that leader certainly won't be Cordileone of San Francisco. As Tucker says, conservative religious and political leaders fear to confront these mobs because they have no legitimacy. George Floyd was a violent black predator whose unsurprising death at the hands of professional law enforcement officials, has emboldened hundreds of thousands of black predators and their antifa handlers to rape, loot and murder throughout the nation. Even as these unruly mobs attack the European legacy and greatness embodied in the example of Saint Junipero Serra who laid the foundation for modern California, men like the Archbishop can only lodge meek and polite complaints for fear of them.
The danger is from Marxists within and the mobs inspired by them without, and from ecclesiastical cowards. Like the Republican Party, the modern Catholic Church is defenseless against this wave of violence and has all but surrendered to it.
As Fred Martinez asks, "Do Homosexual Revolutionaries Control the Catholic Church?"
CNA Staff, Jun 20, 2020 / 08:55 pm MT (CNA).- After the toppling of a saint’s statue in San Francisco, the city’s archbishop said Saturday that important protests over racial injustice have been “hijacked” by a mob bent on violence.
“What is happening to our society? A renewed national movement to heal memories and correct the injustices of racism and police brutality in our country has been hijacked by some into a movement of violence, looting and vandalism,” Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone said in a statement June 20.
The archbishop’s statement came after a statue of St. Junipero Serra was torn down in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park Friday, along with statues of Francis Scott Key and Ulysses S. Grant.
“The toppling and defacing of statues in Golden Gate Park, including that of St. Junipero Serra, have become the latest example,” of that shift in the protest movement, the archbishop added.
Ht: Complicit Clergy.
Archbishop Hebda won't do anything to stop it either as the Christopher Colombus statue was recently at Saint Paul's capitol building, toppled by a handful of burnt out old American Indian Movement crackpots. At least two companies of State Troopers were on hand inside the capitol building doing nothing... We hope that the State of Minnesota sues the American Indian Movement to pay for a replacement of the statue.

(New York) In the US, a paid advertisement has become a national issue. This past April 16 a full page advertisement appeared in the newspaper, The San Francisco Chronicle with an appeal to Pope Francis. It appealed to impeach Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone and drive him out of the city. It's an unusual initiative, but for Catholics in the German-speaking world, however, this is quite familiar.
The accusation is made by financially wealthy signatories of the appeal? The Archbishop is contrary to the papal postulate "Who am I to judge?". The occasion are guidelines by the Archbishop of the 4th of February, about the Catholic schools in his archdiocese, which he demanded that Catholic marriage and morality be recalled and called on schools to ensure it's disseminated to the students (see report Rebellion Against Archbishop: "Who are you to judge? ").
Accusation: Archbishop is Contrary to Postulate "Who am I to Judge?"
The gay lobby within and outside the Catholic Church feels challenged by the Archbishop, who dared to recall the Catholic doctrine in terms of homosexuality. Specifically, the archbishop asked that school personnel have to adhere to Catholic doctrine in their teaching in word and deed.
"Too intolerant" is the archbishop and he should therefore be removed from office, opine a hundred signatories of the appeal, which describe themselves as Catholics or to be exact, as a "dedicated Catholics, inspired by the Second Vatican Council."
Among the signatories is Brian Cahill, former director of Catholic Charities of San Francisco and "a number of rich patrons," says Vatican expert Sandro Magister. Among them are also Charles Geschke, President of Adobe Systems and former Chairman of the Board of the University of San Francisco. Among the Americans there was also Tom Brady Sr. the father of Tom Brady JR., a quarterback for the New England Patriots , in the National Football Leagueplay.
Progressive Catholics in Alliance with Major Media
The San Francisco Chronicle , the largest daily newspaper in Northern California, which published the appeal as a paid ad, placed the signatories as "prominent Catholics." It belongs to the Hearst group, which also includes the Internet platform San Francisco Gate.
To give the publication even more importance San Francisco Gate launched a survey with four pre-formulated answers - two for and two against Archbishop Cordileone - to the question: "Should Pope Francis remove Archbishop Cordileone from the Archdiocese of San Francisco?"
But the shot backfired. The survey showed that the overwhelming majority of citizens are not identified with the signatories of the appeal, but in solidarity with Archbishop Cordileone.[!]
The Survey, Which Was to Demolish Cordileone, but in Reality Strengthens
On the evening of 20 April, the answers to the questions were: "Should Pope Francis remove Cordileone as Archbishop of the Archdiocese of San Francisco?"
76 percent, "No, the archbishop promotes the values of the Catholic Church";
12 percent: "Yes, the Archbishop stoking a climate of intolerance";
10 percent, "No, the archbishop is right to oppose same-sex marriage";
2 percent, "Yes, his moral code for the teachers of Catholic schools is contrary to the law."
"Liberal" Catholics in the "Most liberal" City in the US only Small Minority
"The signatories of the appeal may be 'prominent Catholics' but they are not in tune with the faithful nor do they have a great following and not even in the city in the USA, which the media portrays as the most liberal," said Sandro Magister. "And that Pope Francis is considering: That he remove Archbishop Cordileone from his office, is simply unthinkable".
The personnel policies of Pope Francis for the US is mostly opaque since the disempowerment and finally, the removal of Cardinal Raymond Burke of the Roman Curia, but shows a strong progressivist bent in its counter-tendency to the American episcopate.
The hitherto most important appointment concerned the successor of Cardinal Francis George as Archbishop of Chicago. For this diocese, one of the most important in the United States, Francis appointed Bishop Blaise Cupich, a progressive outlier.
Appointment of Bishops from Pope Francis' Progressive List
This past March 3rd, Francis appointed with Robert McElroy Bishop of San Diego, another progressive. McElroy is a priest of the Archdiocese of San Francisco, where he was the personal secretary of ultra progressive Archbishop John R. Quinn. Quinn had even been raised by Pope Paul VI. to the office. In 1995 a turnaround came with his retirement in the archdiocese. John Paul II. Replaced him with William Levada, later Prefect of the Congregation. He was succeeded by George Hugh Niederauer and 2012 finally Salvatore Cordileone.
Cordileone was from 2002-2009 Auxiliary Bishop of San Diego, the Southern California diocese on the border with Mexico, which the Pope has entrusted to McElroy. Archbishop Cordileone, a wise man with a clear voice and determination, has become the target of fierce attacks since his inauguration in San Francisco. They come from both inside and outside of the Catholic Church. One reason is that the Archbishop is friendly to tradition and has even celebrated in the Immemorial Rite. As already indicated in the past, Cordileone's opponents hardly shrink from attempting to discredit the Archbishop and force him out of office.
However, the latest attempt backfired.
