A pair of St. Louis homeowners became instant Internet stars after breaking out their firearms to confront a group of Black Lives Matter rioters in front of their home last week.
Now hundreds of protesters again gathered outside: “Protesters marched along the busy public boulevard called Kingshighway, which intersects with Portland Place, a private street that is the site of the Renaissance palazzo-style home of Mark McCloskey, 61, and his 63-year-old wife, Patricia,” Yahoo News reported Saturday.

Once you go to someone’s home as a mob to intimidate you are no longer a protestor. They should all be arrested.
Hundreds of protesters again gathered outside the home of Mark and Patricia McCloskey in St. Louis, Missouri, on Friday, taunting the pair of homeowners, who last week tried to defend their property from a demonstration that had broken through the gates of their private community by brandishing a pair of firearms.
The protesters stopped “just outside the gates,” resisting a repeat of last week, when the same demonstrators, on their way to the mayor’s home, allegedly broke down a pair of wrought iron doors and entered the private community. For 15 minutes, they chanted Black Lives Matter slogans, though this time, the couple was nowhere to be seen.
Instead, it seems, the McCloskey’s had hired a private security firm to protect their home rather than rely on their own prowess with handguns and an AR-15.
“Inside the gate, more than a dozen men in plain clothes walked the grounds and peered out from a second-floor balcony of the couple’s home, Yahoo News said. “One protester briefly straddled an iron gate as if he was going to jump over, but did not. No one threw anything and no one behind the gates showed aggression. One man on the McCloskeys’ balcony clapped along with the chanting protesters.” More
It’s sad that they were forced to pay for private security instead of letting the police handle it. The mayor and governor need to be removed from power.
This is proof that this movement is about nothing other than harassment and anarchy. The homeowner actually works in a business where he defends and supports BLM. Yet somehow these complete and utter morons think it’s a good idea to protest and harass someone who supports them.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
