Shaun King Compares Couple Protecting Home to People Who ‘Watched Lynchings’

Shaun King, the same left-wing activist who thinks ‘white Jesus’ statues and depictions are racist and should all be destroyed, tried to demonize a couple protecting their home. You’ve probably heard about it by now, agitators barged down a residential street striking fear in the hearts and souls of peaceful American citizens in their own homes. St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson’s home was the target because the crowd apparently wanted her to resign. According to KMOV4:

“A group of 300 protesters, chanting “resign Lyda, take the cops with you,” marched after Krewson read the names and addresses of demonstrators calling for police reform during a Friday afternoon Facebook Live video.”

One couple wasn’t having it and took to their property to defend their home from potential looters and violent action. The media has largely demonized them of course, as pointing guns at “peaceful protestors”, but Mark and Patricia McCloskey say they feared for their lives and claim the protesters were illegally protesting on a private road. Shaun King though it would be a good idea to liken them to people who enjoyed watching lynchings during the days of slavery for some reason, posting photos of them to Facebook and saying:

I’ve seen those eyes before. That evil has been around for generations. Centuries. Those eyes were on plantations. Those eyes lied on Emmett Till. Those eyes watched lynchings. Those eyes. Patricia McCloskey and are her husband Mark McCloskey, attorneys in St. Louis, lost their damn minds.

KMOV4 also reported:

During the protest, a couple at a nearby home stepped outside with guns around 7:30 p.m. Images and videos showed 61-year-old Patricia McCloskey pointing a handgun at the crowd and her husband 63-year-old Mark McCloskey was seen holding a rifle. Mark and Patricia McCloskey are personal-injury lawyers who work together in the McCloskey Law Center in St. Louis.

The couple is receiving both praise and criticism online: some people are supporting them for protecting their property.

Mark McCloskey reached out to News 4 Monday morning saying he was having dinner with his family outside of his home when the crowd went through wrought iron gates marked with “No Trespassing” and “Private Street” signs on Portland Place.
