Maybe They Didn’t Want To Watch Their Home Go Up In Flames During A Mostly Peaceful Protest

It’s a crazy world and it keeps getting crazier.

ABC News:

A white couple who stood outside their St. Louis mansion and pointed guns at protesters who were marching toward the mayor’s home to demand her resignation support the Black Lives Matter movement and don’t want to become heroes to those who oppose the cause, their attorney said Monday.

Video posted online showed Mark McCloskey, 63, and his 61-year-old wife, Patricia, standing outside their Renaissance palazzo-style home Sunday night in the city’s well-to-do Central West End neighborhood. He could be heard yelling while holding a long-barreled gun. His wife stood next to him with a handgun.

Mark McCloskey told KMOV-TV that he and wife, who are personal injury lawyers, were facing an “angry mob” on their private street and feared for their lives Sunday night.

No charges were brought against McCloskeys. Police said they were still investigating but labeled it a case of trespassing and assault by intimidation against the couple by protesters in the racially diverse crowd.

However, Circuit Attorney Kimberly Gardner issued a statement later Monday characterizing what happened differently and saying her office was working with police to investigate the confrontation.

“I am alarmed at the events that occurred over the weekend, where peaceful protesters were met by guns and a violent assault,” she said. “We must protect the right to peacefully protest, and any attempt to chill it through intimidation or threat of deadly force will not be tolerated.”

Their attorney, Albert Watkins, told The Associated Press on Monday that the couple are long-time civil rights advocates and support the message of the Black Lives Matter movement. He said they grabbed their guns when two or three protesters — who were white — violently threatened the couple and their property and that of their neighbors.

“The most important thing for them is that their images (holding the guns) don’t become the basis for a rallying cry for people who oppose the Black Lives Matter message,” Watkins said. “They want to make it really clear that they believe the Black Lives Matter message is important.”

The marchers were angry at Mayor Lyda Krewson for reading aloud the names and addresses of several residents who wrote letters calling for defunding the police department. The group of at least 500 people chanted, “Resign, Lyda! Take the cops with you!” news outlets reported.

Police said the couple had heard a loud commotion in the street and saw a large group of people break an iron gate marked with “No Trespassing” and “Private Street” signs. The video showed the protesters walking through the gate and it was unclear when it was damaged.

The original stories didn’t mention that the McCloskeys were BLM supporters. I don’t believe it. If they were really BLM supporters they would have been on their knees chanting “Black lives matter” as the mob strolled by. I think they are more like they were originally portrayed: a wealthy white couple who were terrified by an angry mob of mostly black people trespassing on private property.

OTOH, I don’t think they were racists. But they are officially racists now, and no amount of kneeling, groveling, or self-abasement will ever change that. It’s the Zimmerman Rule – George Zimmerman was a liberal Obama supporter until he met St. Trayvon of Skittles. Only a racist would defend himself against black violence.

The Left seems to be attempting to establish a two-tier system of justice in this country. It appears that they want one system of justice for the identity groups that the Left favors, and one for the identity groups that the Left disfavors. I say “seems to” and “appears” because I don’t believe that it is their ultimate goal.

The ultimate goal of the Left is to get the United States divided against ourselves in a Civil War. They want us to be the Untied States. They claim “diversity is our strength” but that is a lie. Unity is our strength, and unity is under attack. All of our institutions are under attack and they are trying to erase our history. And they try to destroy anyone who dares to resist. I suspect that the McCloskeys are finding that out.

Here is a video of a racist in Detroit attacking peaceful BLM protestors with his SUV:

    The couple are personal injury attorneys–of course they’re libs who support BLM.

    They were right to defend themselves–notice the mob, who were trespassing, kept walking.

    But they are wrong if they think pandering in this statement is going to “save” them. The monster will eat them last, maybe, but they will be eaten.

      What I found amusing is that one of the stories I read said that their house was worth $1.5 million. In California $1.5 million will get you a single-wide on cinderblocks.

        I was just watching Million Dollar Listing LA –2.3 million for a 2000 sq. foot single story craftsman right up from Sunset (on the edge of the desirable Hollywood Hills neighborhood but not in it).
        The inside was all nicely updated, but good lord.

    • votermom says:

      The wife is probably on shaky legal ground because she was pointing her gun, I think.
      (not sure tbh coz state laws differ)
      but standing in your property, holding or wearing a firearm in open sight (not “brandishing “, not pointing, not concealing) is legal in all states, right?

      In San Francisco masks are mandatory, but pants and underwear are optional. The climate in SF is not conducive to public nudity, but they do it anyway.

      I hear you! I inadvertently went to Disney during gay days years ago 😳 The things my kids saw 😳

      Our neighbor just a month earlier had been approached by Disney security because he had on a tee shirt that said “Shit Happens”. He was told he had to turn his shirt inside out, but a different shirt and put it on, or leave the park, because the shirt violated their standards

      Well I’m here to tell you those standards do NOT apply during gay days and if you complain you are castigated as homophobic. The disgusting slogans on tee shirts were the least of it. Shirtless men with pornographic tattoos parading around. Sex in the bathrooms and on rides. Impromptu pride parades, shouting at the top of their lungs sexual behaviors they enjoy.

      We have annual passes so ordinarily I would have left, but we had out of state visitors that had spent a fortune on tickets and understandably they didn’t want to leave. Never go to Disney the first week of June!

      I don’t care who you love, whether you are straight, gay, bi, none of my business. If they had heterosexual days at Disney with similar antics I would be disgusted by it.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Wow, I always thought Disney had stricter dress and behavior codes than a 1950s Catholic School. I’m sorry, but is that behavior winning hearts and minds of the straight community? It just looks like they want to mainstream pervvy behaviors rather than love your fellow man kinda thing.

        I prefer Tampa Bay’s Busch Gardens, better rides 🙂

        • somebody says:

          You must like roller coasters Denise. You’d like Islands of Adventure at Universal too. I’m not a thrill ride person, but hubby is.

          Hubby always had one theme park rule, since he was paying each of us had to ride a coaster with him 🥺 Hence why we generally stuck to WDW 🤣 Disney has added coasters through the years, curse them!

          We have also had annual passes to Universal off and on through the years. I learned a neat trick to ward off hubby’s coaster rule. Get obnoxiously drunk, which is easy there, bar carts every few feet. He learned the hard way, don’t take my drunk ass on a roller coaster 🤢🤮 I can’t remember the last time I was at Universal sober 🤣🤣🤣🤣

    Remember when we thought pictures of Weiner’s dick was controversial? Good times.

    • elliesmom says:

      I believe that’s the point that’s lost on a lot of activists. The people in Boston didn’t object to the gay community putting entries into the Saint Patrick’s Day parade. Rainbows are part of the usual theme accompanied by leprechauns and pots of gold. They objected to graphic sexual content, and that would have held for heterosexual sex as well. When my students returned from an excursion to Provincetown, they weren’t shocked to have found out their biology teacher was gay, They were shocked to see him parading in leather chaps and not much else.

    • Mothy67 says:

      People take their kids to see this stuff????
      The bars may be closed but there were plenty of parties. Save your theatrics for something away from children’s eyes. No one is shocked. It is more of a grow up feeling.

      • votermom says:

        there are tranny drag queens doing pole dances inside childre libraries – I think they WANT the kids exposed

        • elliesmom says:

          Exactly. Storytellers often dress up as characters in a book to get the kids engaged in the story, and it makes pedagogical sense. But there’s no connection between a drag queen pole dancer and Winnie the Pooh.

    I see a couple of self-involved SJW lawyers who are all in for BLM rioting except when it affects their sense of self entitlement. The woman deserves at least a years and a day for pointing her Walther PPKS at a person, with her finger on the trigger.

    IMO, they showed very poor judgement confronting those people with firearms. They may be politically connected enough to get a “pass” but ordinary people who did that would open themselves to being financially destroyed by the legal “process, especially in Dem. run St. Louis.

      I’m pretty sure Missouri has The Castle Doctrine, so they were within their rights to defend their property.

      Once they broke through that gate, they were no longer peaceful. I think every article I’ve read about the situation calls them peaceful, lol, fake news !

      • Miranda says:

        I don’t believe in peaceful protests anymore. All protesters are mobs, which are inherently violent.

        • DeniseVB says:

          It must be in the new AP Guidance book, all protests must be preceded with peaceful ? If a riot breaks out, blame it on white supremacists? 😀

          • Miranda says:

            Some ‘peaceful’ protesters camped out in front of our governor’s house last night. Since he’s been ok with them trashing downtown Raleigh, I hope he’s enjoyed the experience.

          • Myiq2xu says:

            All Leftist protests are peaceful, even when they are not. All RW protests are violent, even when they are peaceful.

    • DeniseVB says:

      HOA is $500/mo, so this had to be a back gate they broke to get in since it probably required a security card to open. There has to be a front car entrance with a security guard for that amount of HOA. The breach should have triggered an alarm in the guard shack, and would have called police also.

      Or you could say that Roberts was on Pedo island with Epstein which was run by the FBI/CIA who is blackmailing him into judgements. Or you could say he is making Christians motivated to vote in November to elect Trump and get one more conservatives Justice on the court. Or you could say Roberts is afraid that if he votes with conservatives Democrats will be rage motivated to vote for Biden and will destroy or pack the court.

    Remember Mena? It all seems so long ago now, doesn’t it. Well, here is new info from Judicial Watch.

    Mena Uncovered: Judicial Watch Discloses Secret CIA Report

    Judicial Watch recently obtained new documents related to mysterious Mena Airfield in Arkansas. They shed more light on what happened at Mena and what then-Governor Bill Clinton knew about it.

    Strange events unfolded at Mena, a small city in remote western Arkansas, in the 1980s. When Bill Clinton became president, Mena got a closer look. Evidence emerged suggesting that the CIA was operating in the area in the early 1980s; that a major cocaine and gun smuggler was based at the airfield; and that the U.S. military was somehow involved. Conspiracy theories sprouted. The Clinton Administration batted away concerns about Mena as the rantings of its right-wing enemies.

    • Myiq2xu says:

      There was a reporter in San Jose who broke the story about cocaine smuggling Contras and the CIA in the 1980s. The government denied everything and the reporter found himself unemployed and unemployable. He committed suicide.

      Years later we found out he was telling the truth. The CIA was helping the Contras smuggle cocaine to finance their war against the Sandinistas.

    Well, here we go again. Carl Bernstein publishes an account where “sources say” Trump is mean to foreign leaders in their phone calls. They are really piling on between now and November.

      I remember back during the 2016 campaign when one of the lefties said that it wasn’t good enough just to defeat Donald J. Trump. They had to totally destroy him. They sure are making a damned good attempt.

      I’m picturing a movie with an Antifa riot and at the police command center the officer in charge orders “Deploy MOMS, I say again, Deploy MOMS.”

      Then you see buses pulling up and a bunch of moms get off the buses and start grabbing Antifa goons and smacking them around. “Get your ass on that bus! We’re going home right now! You’re in a lot of trouble, mister!”

      When the buses drive away the streets are empty.

      That would be so awesome.

    This is the amazing house (mansion) that belongs to the McCloskeys. The home is over 100 yrs old, they bought it in 1988 and restored it. I hope they hire some security for this historic building, because I think the mob will be back for “justice”.

      I still have the post I said a couple years ago pretty soon is going to be illegal to be white in this country. At the beginning of covid-19 I said it was a hoax and who was involved. At this point we’re going to have Civil War where are they there but will announce it officially when Trump wins they’re going to kill as many people as they can if they steal the election we will have to fight to remain alive. If you can’t see this open your eyes. The funny thing is Nancy Pelosi Hillary Clinton and the like still think they can control the monster they Unleashed. I think that anyone I still think socialism is a good ideal should have to live in chop for 24 hours especially if they’re white. This is how big the big lie has gotten the CDC has already said they’ve tested blood donated to the blood banks and they’ve extrapolated data that shows 23 million Americans have had covid-19 so using the death rate numbers which are highly fabricated that puts the death rate of covid-19 at .05 Which is less than the average flu. But still we do not have a complete open the country stop the bailout give people their jobs back cut off unemployment and shut the fuck up about a flu know we still have nonsense because there is no news source that reports the news anymore. I cannot even look at Fox breaking headlines without getting triggered because it looks like CNN. There is no danger from covid-19 any more so than any other terrible flu here is the danger to this country the people the news the teachers the doctors the voters the haters. It’s happening right in front of our eyes and we’re doing almost nothing. If you haven’t already gone out and bought an Arsenal and a couple thousand bullets please do. If you haven’t thought about an exit strategy for you and those you love including your animals please do. Make sure you have your meds food and anything else you need. These are terrible times and they’re only going to get worse no matter what the decision is in November.
