The armed St. Louis couple who protected their home from a Black Lives Matter invasion said the thugs threatened to kill them and their dog after trespassing on their private property by cutting through an iron gate.
Mark McCloskey, 63, and his wife Patricia, 61, said they had no choice but to resort to their Second-Amendment right to self-defense because the police didn’t show up after they frantically called 911 begging for help.
The McCloskeys said they only retrieved their guns when they saw that the mob who had trespassed on their property were themselves armed and began threatening to hurt them.
“This is all private property. There are no public sidewalks or public streets,” McCloskey told KMOV4. “We were told that we would be killed, our home burned and our dog killed. We were all alone facing an angry mob.”
McCloskey continued: “It was like the storming of the Bastille. The gate came down and a large crowd of angry, aggressive people poured through. I was terrified that we’d be murdered within seconds. Our house would be burned down, our pets would be killed.”
McCloskey added: “A mob of at least 100 smashed through the iron gates of Portland Place, destroying them, rushed towards my home where my family was having dinner outside and put us in fear for our lives. One fellow standing right in front of me pulled out two pistol magazines, clicked them together and said, ‘You’re next.’ That was the first death threat we got that night.”
Leftists on Twitter are offended that this home owner stepped outside with a gun to prevent Black Lives Matter protestors from storming his home in St Louis. Good for him. pic.twitter.com/qCszCoTmdI

The people who’ve been explicitly defending rioting, looting, vandalism and racially motivated assaults for weeks are now fainting over two people peacefully standing on their own property holding guns. Screw you guys. Seriously. Shut up. Nothing you say means anything.

Rasheen Aldridge, who’s black, is a local Democrat district representative. Aldridge led the group that trespassed on the McCloskeys’ private property.
When asked why the group trespassed, Aldridge said, “Just like in many disobedient protests, even in the 60s, you break laws, make people feel uncomfortable. We’re not doing anything where we’re hurting anyone or putting anyone in danger.”
Oh really? We’ve already seen numerous instances where mobs engaged in brutal group beatdowns of random white people and torched private property.
Who in their right mind would not feel threatened if an angry mob showed up on their front step?
Politicians will continue to blame #Antifa
For all of the violence despite evidence to the contrary
It’s socially acceptable to blame a mostly white group
But giving them all the credit for the destruction is disingenuous
Why not be honest?pic.twitter.com/dMs3DbN0xu

If you attempt to gain entry to my or my family’s vehicle, it will not end the way you’d hope. You will be considered a imminent threat to life and/or serious physical injury. This is not a game. https://t.co/e7KnLiT8LL

Finally someone stood up and spoke the truth! 🔥🔥🔥🔥
“All the killings in our community ain’t coming from white people. We’re killing one another. Our old people are scared to come out at night…they’re not scared of white people, they’re scared of young black boys..” pic.twitter.com/Up5P7JxbRW

A police report later labeled the incident as a case of trespassing and assault by intimidation.
Shockingly, Democrats and their media minions have smeared Mark and Patricia McCloskey as racists and the angry mob as the “victims.”
Here’s an incredulous statement from the Circuit Attorney (chief prosecutor) of St. Louis. Gardner wants to investigate the McCloskeys for defending themselves from a threatening mob.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson pointed out that the McCloskeys support Black Lives Matter and even represented a black youth who claimed he was the victim of police brutality.
Tucker said the fact that the media and Democrats are demonizing a couple for defending themselves because the police never showed up underscores how out-of-control the violent left has become.
Carlson said: “The message to everybody else was crystal-clear: The mob is in charge. Their power cannot be curbed. Don’t even consider defending yourself.”
