Remember the St. Louis husband and wife torched by the liberal media for protecting their home with guns on their front lawns after BLM protesters marched through their neighborhood and threatened to kill their dog? The media/BLM might have lost that battle, but they didn’t give up the fight to torture this couple. The McCloskeys are both lawyers, and now they are being persecuted by local government leaders to have their law licenses suspended in the latest sickening move from Democrats.
Mark and Patricia McCloskey, both lawyers in Missouri, have been the subject of attention in the state and nationwide over the June 2020 confrontation with BLM.
In court filings, Missouri Chief Disciplinary Counsel Alan Pratzel has asked the state’s Supreme Court to suspend their law licenses due to their guilty pleas to misdemeanors stemming from the incident, according to KCUR-FM in Kansas City.
“Mark McCloskey pleaded guilty on June 17 to misdemeanor fourth-degree assault and was ordered to pay a fine of $750. Patricia McCloskey pleaded guilty on the same date to misdemeanor harassment, with a $2,000 fine,” the NPR outlet wrote in a Twitter post published Monday.
They were pardoned by Missouri Republican Gov. Mike Parson, the post added.

The legal move against the McCloskeys could be seen as a political effort as well. Mark McCloskey is running in the Republican primary for the U.S. Senate to replace Republican Sen. Roy Blunt, who plans to retire in 2022.
If he had his license suspended, it could give Democrats ammunition against him if he won the nomination.
The McCloskeys recounted the fear they felt as the boisterous protesters broke into their neighborhood and trampled down the streets next to their house, “They were going to come in there. They were going to burn down the house. They were going to be living in our house after I was dead, and they were pointing to different rooms and said, ‘That’s going to be my bedroom and that’s going to be the living room and I’m going to be taking a shower in that room.'”
What would you have done? The showing of a gun seemed like an appropriate defensive measure to dissuade the angry protesters from attacking them and making good on their threats.
Yet the couple was given $750 and $2,000 fines, respectively, but neither party faced any jail time.
“That’s what the guns were there for and I’d do it again any time the mob approaches me … In other words, I stood out on the porch with my rifle and make them back up. And that’s what I’d do again. If that’s a crime in Missouri, by God I did it, and I’d do it again.”
Sounds downright American, but to the woke mob of the left, you can’t have that – especially when the person is running as a Republican Senate candidate.
Instead, there has to be a hunt to take away someone’s livelihood and destroy a family and business to remain in power. If there was ever evidence the left’s agenda is pure evil, this is it.
Thankfully, the McCloskeys are still in the fight. We need more Americans like them, and leaders like them, if our nation has any hope of better days ahead.
