    Lofl at the 17:00 mark the albino tries to make some sort of comparison to taking a war treasure from German War supporters… to an American attacking other Americans fighting for justice… just pathetic lofl. 19:00 mark the church was worried the other pieces would be stolen from them… by the Russians.. so that’s why they never investigated earlier…lofl. at the 104:00 mark the albino again taking about why cultural thinks arts important.. no matter where they are.. they belong to "you".. that are "all of ours".. then immediately attacks the guy for taking it… dust lofl.. this guy is an attention whoore clown

    I bet this is all made up.

    Once it became obvious Joe Meador was gay, I suddenly flipped. Let the gay keep the treasures, heโ€™ll love them more than a church LOL ๐Ÿ˜‚ (joking)

    I noticed that some of those pieces are of ancient Egyptian origin. Are you going to pass them back to Egypt in turn?

    Who calls who a thief here?

    What Texas?

    Theft is theft. Perhaps statute of limitations meant that they couldn’t be prosecuted for the theft, but they absolutely should have been prosecuted for the sale. I don’t understand people who buy stolen art. It’s ART, it’s meant to be shared.

    This is where Texas stole the spoils of war. You know they were PAINTINGS . Ask Ted Cruz. Photographs. Let’s look at them.

  12. Michelle Ayres on October 19, 2022 at 9:49 am

    War is an excuse to steal.

  13. Anne-Marie Cole on October 19, 2022 at 9:53 am

    Wow the Texans are so cavalier about stealing valuables that belong to so many people. Welcome to America!

  14. Robert Telarket on October 19, 2022 at 9:54 am

    Death penalty for the thieves on artistic grounds not religious!!!!!

  15. sephirothpaine on October 19, 2022 at 9:57 am

    I find it funny that the niece told everyone where they live. Joe Meador is no better than the nazi’s that only stole art pieces.

  16. Maura Chapman on October 19, 2022 at 9:57 am

    Please tell me we aren’t going there again.

  17. Giancarlo Garabis on October 19, 2022 at 10:01 am

    Leave it to privileged white people to steal precious artifacts, then pretend the own them when the real owners come looking. Yet me a Puerto Rican does same crime now. I got no chance. Freaking family disgust me. They stay on there high horse like they should be compensated for stolen property. The privilege in this country is insane!!!!!!! What gives me the right to judge you sir as u so nicely asked, is that you and your family pretend its ok to keep stolen artifacts, try to sell during the litigation, then seek compensation to give back to rightful owners. Total bull crap. Typical white America

    The niece just rubs me the wrong way

  19. . on October 19, 2022 at 10:07 am

  20. My name is Tim on October 19, 2022 at 10:07 am

    Holy crap. That was booooooooorrrrrrriiiiiiiiinnnnnng

  21. archeewaters on October 19, 2022 at 10:09 am

    …and this is just a fraction of stolen art.

  22. Steve Mundy on October 19, 2022 at 10:11 am

    Goehring thought of himself as a ”renaissance man’ too. Another art thief…

  23. Ted Slaughter on October 19, 2022 at 10:15 am

    Looting during wartime is generally a capital crime. It’s an embarrassment to America that meador was allowed to escape the noose.

    I didn’t know Mark Summers has an accent!
