Anyone remember the St. Louis guy in a pink polo that confronted Black Lives Matter (BLM) protesters who marched through private property and in front of his home? Well, he’s now apparently running for U.S. Senate in Missouri.
Mark McCloskey - the attorney who along with his wife, Patricia, stood armed outside their home to protect it from the protesters who broke through his community’s gates last July - announced on Tuesday that he will be running for U.S. Senate in 2022 in light of Sen. Roy Blunt’s (R-Mo.) retirement.
“God came knocking on my door last summer disguised as an angry mob,” McCloskey said, “and it really did wake me up.”
McCloskey told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson that he never got too political, but voiced what he believes is the same frustration people are feeling all over the country.
“People are just sick of it,” said McCloskey. “They don’t want any more posers and egotists and career politicians going to D.C. All we hear is talk, and nothing ever changes.”
After dispelling the claims that he was a Democrat and that he’s always been a Republican, McCloskey spoke of how members of Congress should be “willing to tell the truth and fight for our freedom.” He even took the opportunity to take a shot at President Joe Biden's administration.
“If we don’t stand up now and take this country back, it’s going away. We used to talk about the erosion of our civil liberties,” McCloskey also said. “In the last 100-and-some-days, since this administration has taken over, there has been the wholesale slaughter of our civil liberties and wholesale institution of what can’t be called anything but socialism.”
