Why would this couple, whose real names are Mark and Patricia McCloskey, suddenly come running out of their over-sized house to warn off a crowd of black people? They were so frightened, they didn’t even put on shoes. OMG! There are black people in our gated community. How did they get in? Are they going to kill us? –said Ken and Karen–probably.
The protesters had no interest in the McCloskeys or their giant pile of riches. They were simply marching to the residence of St Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson to protest how she had doxxed all the people that wrote to her in support of police reform. The McCloskeys, however, believed their lives and property were in danger from the mob.
So, instead of retreating into their fortified ‘safe room’ like all the rich people in movies do, they took matters into their own hands, grabbed some weapons and started threatening the marching crowd. Who keeps an AR15 handier than a pair of shoes? Seriously.
“A mob of at least 100 smashed through the historic wrought iron gates of Portland Place, destroying them, rushed towards my home where my family was having dinner outside and put us in fear of our lives,”Mark McCloskey to CNN
Later on, the McCloskeys spoke through their attorney, claiming that they support the Black Lives Matters protesters, but that it was two armed white men in the crowd that frightened them.
“At the time, their fear was, these people, two in particular, that were marching along with the Black Lives Matter protest participants – all peaceful. They were acting in a fashion inconsistent with the message being given,” Watkins said. “My clients were not arming themselves against peaceful protesters. They were arming themselves about people with a really bad motive, a motive that runs afoul of the fundamental tenets of our country.”Al Watkins to FOX
The protesters shouted back at the McCloskeys, but they kept on going.
Does anyone believe the McCloskey’s story? That they were afraid for their lives and property? That it was just two nasty white people they were afraid of? Are the Mcloskeys Black Lives Matters supporters?
Let the pictures and video help you decide.
