St. Louis Couple Insists They Support BLM Despite Pointing Guns At Protesters

Recommended Posts

For Mark McCloskey and his wife Patricia McCloskey, showing your support for the Black Lives Matter movement actually includes pointing guns at those on the frontline of protests. Unfortunately for the now-viral St. Louis couple, their trigger-happy antics are being met with massive waves of criticism.   

As reported by outlets like the NY Post, an attorney for The McCloskeys says they consider themselves to be "longtime civil rights activists." Attorney Albert Watkins assures that photos and video of Mark toting a semi-automatic rifle while Patricia brandishes a silver pistol are actually capturing self defense. The reason they even had guns was allegedly due to being threatened by a handful of white protesters, the latter fact supposedly eliminating the idea that their actions were racially-motivated.

Given the fact that protesters in the Sunday march weren't even concerned with The McCloskeys — they were rallying against St. Louis mayor Lyda Krewson for going on Facebook Live and reading personal info of residents who wrote letters in support of defunding the police — it seems a bit much to get the strap on those fighting for social justice.

Let us know your opinions on whether Patricia & Mark McCloskey were rightfully defending their neighborhood or going way overboard down below in the comments.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
