Just so you understand: the mob was on these people’s front yard, they were threatening them after breaking through their gate. The McKloskeys had every reason to think their lives were in danger, they had every reason to take a stand and defend themselves.
This isn’t only a part of American law, but a part of the ancient concept of “rights” that goes back to caveman times.
The blacks however are in the process of introducing a new concept of rights and laws, where if you are white, you have a legal obligation to be killed by them.
The St. Louis couple who became worldwide news after waving guns at protesters outside their Central West End home last month were charged Monday with gun crimes, despite pushback against the investigation from Jefferson City to Washington.
Mark and Patricia McCloskey each face a single felony count of unlawful use of a weapon — exhibiting. Charging documents say he pointed an AR-15 rifle at protesters and she wielded a semiautomatic handgun, placing protesters in fear of injury.
Charging documents say investigators conducted “numerous” witness interviews and relied on video footage and the McCloskeys’ own statements about the June 28 incident.
In a statement, St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly M. Gardner said, “It is illegal to wave weapons in a threatening manner at those participating in nonviolent protest, and while we are fortunate this situation did not escalate into deadly force, this type of conduct is unacceptable in St. Louis.”
She said the charges followed a thorough police investigation and that she would be open to resolving the charges with a diversion program, a form of probation that would mean no conviction for the McCloskeys if successfully completed.
Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt said he will seek dismissal of the charges and called them a case of “political prosecution.”

Defense lawyer Joel Schwartz issued his own statement, calling the charges “disheartening as I unequivocally believe no crime was committed.”
Schwartz said that “the First Amendment right of every citizen to have their voice and opinion heard … must be balanced with the Second Amendment and Missouri law, which entitle each of us to protect our home and family from potential threats.” Schwartz has previously told the Post-Dispatch that “based upon Missouri law and the Castle Doctrine, the McCloskeys were 100% within their rights.”
After the incident, the couple told the Post-Dispatch they would do it all again.
The couple said they’d been told days before that the protest group Expect Us was planning an event. Mindful of the June 1 arson of a 7-Eleven store in downtown St. Louis, the couple had fire extinguishers in every room on the lower level of their mansion. Mark McCloskey also had his rifle at the ready.
McCloskey said he saw a “flood of people” break through a locked gate and enter Portland Place, a private residential street.
Protesters have denied that, saying they came through an unlocked gate and did not damage it. A video from the night shows an apparently undamaged gate being held open for the first demonstrators, but at some later point, the gate was damaged. Protesters have also said they were not on the McCloskeys’ property.
The marchers were heading to St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson’s house on Lake Avenue and taking a shortcut through the private neighborhood.
The McCloskeys said they grabbed their guns and confronted the protesters, fearful for their lives. Mark McCloskey said both safeties were engaged on their guns. A lawyer for them later said the pistol was inoperable.
In a confrontation that lasted about 15 minutes, Mark McCloskey can be heard yelling, “Get out! Get out! Get out!” A protester responds, “Calm down!” while someone else yells an expletive.
“I believe in my heart of hearts that the only thing that kept those mobsters, that crowd, away from us is that we were standing there with guns,” Mark McCloskey told the newspaper. He said the couple’s actions had nothing to do with race.
It probably didn’t have anything to do with race. This mob had as many whites as blacks, and so far, when it comes to attacking individuals, the white Antifa have been much more brutal than the blacks.
It doesn’t matter what race is what, it matters that the mob was in their front yard.
But of course, the media and the government have established this whole race hoax as the basis of all of this, saying that whites are naturally born evil and thus without rights.
All of this fits into exactly what I’ve been telling you: the system is creating a situation where it will be illegal for you to defend yourself when the blacks come for you.
Yes, okay – the Governor of Missouri is saying he’s going to pardon the McKloskeys, Donald Trump is speaking out, and so on. Probably, this is going to get dropped eventually, and either way, I don’t think they’re going to jail.
But this isn’t about them as individuals. This is about establishing the concept that in America, it is illegal for whites to defend themselves, and if whites do defend themselves, it is an act of violence against the blacks.
If and when Joe Biden wins the election, these kinds of mobs are going to be roving through the suburbs, killing people. If they break into your house, and you shoot them in defense of yourself and your family, they will be declared “peaceful protesters” and you will be declared a “violent white supremacist murderer.”
At that point, the entire justice system and the government will be run by people like Kimberly Gardner, and you will have no one to come defend you. The death that you receive at the hands of the state will be worse than any death that a violent black and Antifa mob could bring down on you.
Who knows, maybe Trump will win and all of this will be put off for another four years. That’s possible. For that to happen, however, this coronavirus hoax has to be dismissed so that we can have a normal election, instead of an election through mail. That doesn’t look possible, especially given that Trump is going to lose this battle on the schools reopening.
So, hope for the best. But it’s time to start trying to get out of the cities. These violent mobs taking over American cities are the new normal, and when Biden is in, the protections against them killing you are going to be pulled completely.
