An affluent St. Louis couple who pulled their guns on protesters walking along their private street in June were featured last night during the Republican National Convention. Mark and Patricia McCloskey called the protesters “an out-of-control mob causing chaos in the streets.” “They are not satisfied with spreading the chaos and violence into our communities, they want to abolish the suburbs all-together by ending single-family zoning,” says Patricia McCloskey.
Mark and Patricia McCloskey suggested they are the victims for getting charged with felonies after using guns to defend their property. Mark McCloskey called out one of the protesters, Democratic Congressional candidate Cori Bush.
“The Marxist liberal activist leading the mob to our neighborhood stood outside of our home with a bullhorn screaming, “You can’t stop the revolution,” says McCloskey. “Just weeks later, that same Marxist activist won the Democrat nomination to hold a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. In the city of St. Louis, that’s the same as winning the General Election. That Marxist revolutionary is going to be the next Congresswoman from the first district of Missouri. These radicals are not content with marching in the streets. They want to walk the halls of Congress. They want to take over.”
On Twitter, Bush says the McCloskeys tried to villainize her but she says they can call her whatever they want. She says you can’t stop the revolution. Bush is poised to be the first African-American Missouri woman to serve in the U.S. House.
