As flags burn, Goldie Taylor recognizes ‘gladiators on the streets of STL’

As Twitchy has reported, demonstrators in south St. Louis have spent the night so far blocking traffic, banging on cars trying to get through, shattering an apartment window, trying to steal a reporter’s iPhone, and burning several American flags. Are these the “real gladiators” writer and MSNBC/CNN contributor had in mind when she urged her followers to remember them?

@goldietaylor @kittyFitz50 @ScandalABC Real dedicated protestors don't take time off for some crappy fictional commercial TV program.

Or troll hashtags, spoiling for a fight. You ain't ready, son. @velosterpilot @kittyFitz50 @ScandalABC

We’ve identified the trolls and cowards here, but we’re still not sure who the gladiator is. Probably the guy who put the reporter and mother of two in a headlock to steal her iPhone? That sounds pretty badass.

@goldietaylor Gladiator: (in ancient Rome) a man trained to fight with weapons against other men or wild animals in an arena. #Notsomuch
