Soros-funded DA wants St. Louis couple investigated for ‘violent assault’

Faced with an angry mob, a pair of armed St. Louis homeowners warned off protesters who allegedly threatened to kill the couple and their dog, as well as burn down their home.

Now the George Soros-funded St. Louis District Attorney wants them investigated for “violent assault” and “intimidation or threat of deadly force.”  

Videos and photos of Mark and Patricia McCloskey of St. Louis have been ubiquitous on social media since the encounter on over the weekend.

Video shows the protesters breaking into private property and being met by a middle-aged couple brandishing guns in the front yard of their home.

The couple said that they feared for their lives, and everyone agrees that the protesters were breaking the law.    

“One fellow standing right in front of me pulled out two pistol magazines, clicked them together and said ‘you’re next.’ That was the first death threat we got that night,” said Mark McCloskey, who likened the encounter to a mob storming the Bastille.  

At least one organizer of the protests agrees that the mob broke the law.

“Just like in many disobedient protests, even in the ’60s, you break laws, make people feel uncomfortable,” said an organizer of the protest, Rasheen Aldridge, admitting that the protesters were attempting to make the couple feel threatened.

The District Attorney in St. Louis condemned the couple and promised an investigation.

“I am alarmed at the events that occurred over the weekend, where peaceful protesters were met by guns and a violent assault,” tweeted DA Kim Gardner. “We must protect the right to peacefully protest, and any attempt to chill it through intimidation or threat of deadly force will not be tolerated.”

She said police and the DA’s office were investigating with the help of “the public,” promising that the “full power of Missouri law” will be used to crush the couple.

Gardner, a Democrat, faces a primary challenge in August. She’s been widely criticized for accepting money from a George Soros super-PAC that was used to fund an internet and cable TV video campaign ad.

“The new internet and cable TV ad was [sic] financed by a federally registered campaign committee from Washington called the Safety & Justice Committee. It was established in June and reported $30,000 in initial funds from Soros. No other contributors were listed as of its last public filing June 30,” reports the Saint Louis Post Despatch.

Records show thus far she has received $190,750.73 from Soros in this election cycle.

A petition at Change.org, another progressive front, calls for the couple, who are attorneys, to be disbarred and stripped of any position of public trust.

    I think that every News Agency as well as this DA needs to be sued for invasion of privacy.They have also ruined these good citizen’s reputations..

  2. Marilyn June 30, 2020

    I guess if this was Pelosi’s house. She would have asked the in first ice cream ! Get a grip people ! This
    Couple had every right to defend their home

  3. Pascal Lambert June 30, 2020

    Drag her in the mud and make sure she is the one who will pay for supporting violent thugs. The couple has every right to self-defense and protection of their private property.

  4. Clifford T. Shea June 30, 2020

    OUR JOURNEY TO GEORGE ORWELL’S 1984 IS COMPLETE: HERE’S WHERE EVERYTHING BECOMES THE REVERSE OF WHAT THEY SEEM!! LAW-ABIDERS SEEKING TO PROTECT WHAT IS RIGHTFULLY THEIRS BECOME CRIMINALS WHILE LAW-BREAKERS WHO SEEK TO DESTROY THE SAME ARE VICTIMS!! CHECK TO SEE IF THE FOLKS SWORN TO PROTECT YOU ARE OWNED BY GEORGE SOROS!! IF SO, TAKE ACTION TO REMOVE THEM NOW!!

  5. 1tymtrvlr June 30, 2020

    FUCK this UNAmerican commie censoring Wire, I unsubscribed you, you useless leftist FUCKS, quit sending your leftist shit.

  6. bruce kunde June 30, 2020

    Why doesn’t the share button work?

  7. Mike June 30, 2020

    Screw this DA who is taking money from soros. Anyone dealing with soros should be arrested & all funds confiscated. These protesters were on private property & had no right to be there. Of course this MORON DA is demoncrap & thinks she has all this power. The American People will not stand for this you A-HOLE. You will see in November!!!

  8. Alan Carnell June 30, 2020

    Soros funding says it all in a nutshell.

    While not a fan of lawyers, these folks were intimidated, threatened and suffered trespassing on their property.
    As I read one protester (moron) drew two guns and made threatening remarks.

    What would any reasonable person do?? Run away and let the vandals take over you property?????

    I am amazed that this is even questionable.

    Arrest the trespassers and charge the weapon wielding nutcase with aggravated assault.

    Social media has screwed up the world and compounded by the left wing media.

    Citizens, get a grip, think for your selves and act.

  9. John June 30, 2020

    Gardner obviously went to the Beria School of Law. Where do these people come from. Everyone has the right to self defense. Where was she going to get a jury to convict of the made up charges? Probably ask Ilhan Omar for jury pool references

  10. robert June 30, 2020

    why is soros still a free man and why does he still have assets?BARR//BARR??? BARR????

  11. Joe L. Ward June 30, 2020

    Stupid, ignorant, tyrant , female DA with an agenda. That same power she claims to have can be reversed.

  12. Mike Wukitsch June 30, 2020

    This is the way these anti-American creeps work…try to crush dissent using their public office, and it’s unlimited funds, to attack those of us who will not prostrate ourselves at their altar of political correctness…or in this case, the altar of Soros’ sycophants.This couple needs to find a way to sue that DA for harassment or anything possible so that their suit take a place during her re-election campaign.

  13. Larry W Gaines June 30, 2020

    The DA needs to be investigated for being crooked

  14. H.D. June 30, 2020

    Tearing up a iron fence, mob invasion of private property, threatening, doesn’t sound like a ‘peaceful protest’ to me.

  15. Jojodmonkey June 30, 2020

    Put those scumbag democrats in prison for life!
    When the republicans win the house and increase their majority in the senate along with President Trump they need to ban all democrats owning guns!

  16. Veteran June 30, 2020

    Even DAs are not above the law. Investigate the thug, read him his rights, arrest him, and send George Soros a note telling him too bad he wasted his money on a L-oser!

  17. Hotwheels June 30, 2020

    There is no democrat party only socialist,marxist,communist. Pull back the police from all democrat areas and see who cries for help

  18. Polky June 30, 2020

    The insane DA should be investigated.You may find he has a lot hidden

  19. Jan June 30, 2020

    Unbelievable – this couple was doing what they felt was necessary to protect their home. No one can chastise them for their efforts – they are heroic people!

  20. Kay June 30, 2020

    Why should they be arrested and charged? I would have done the same damn thing as they did. As a matter of fact I will even offer to back them up if need be. I don’t care if they are Dem or Repub. They have rights too.

  21. Gary June 30, 2020

    That da is the one who should be locked up. Check his bank accounts people you will find a big influx of money sense this happened. You wouldn’t know where it came from but iwas from george soros. The biggest criminal in the world.

  22. Louis June 30, 2020

    I don’t have a problem with what the couple did. I would had done the same thing plus let the sound of that AR15 pound a round on the ground as a life or death warning.

  23. Michael Groves June 30, 2020

    It’s the DA that should be investigated. Part of the story stated one thug right in front of them took out two clips, and clicked them together, and said “you’re next”. Sounds like a threat to me. I’d ask the DA about that. Yet being a butt sniffing ignorant Liberal I can imagine the reply.

  24. Milford Palmer June 30, 2020

    After what has been going on , the DA wants to investigate the couple for protecting their Home. That Da has to go. He should be investigated .But then you find that Soros is involved and you know both Soros and the DA belong in JAIL. Treason

  25. Richard Brewer June 30, 2020

    George Soros is morally bankrupt and anyone he supports is also morlly bankrupt.

  26. My2Cents June 30, 2020

    When are we gonna read that POS obituary or his execution by firing squad

  27. Mike W June 30, 2020

    Something that can never be said often enough or loud enough F**K GEORGE SOROS the TOTAL POS . He should be extradited to one of the countries where he is a wanted criminal. Russia and his native Hungary to name just 2

  28. Gideon Rockwell June 30, 2020

    Thus us more of the Democrat Marxist Insurrection. It is a nationwide collusion of the entire Democrat Party, which has gone full bore Marxist, to overthrow our government and the entire nation. Soros and a group of radicalized Billionaires are funding this. Time for President Trump to invoke the Sedition Act and go after these Marxist Criminals. Bring in some Pipe Hitters from SOCOM and start with the ones on the streets.

  29. Joe June 30, 2020

    Why hasn’t Soros been arrested for funding TERROIST and no peaceful protestors would enter someone else’s property unless they were up to no good. They were told to stay in street and keep walking. Their people didn’t follow the law. They broke thru a gate on this couple property and law,is the law you should be able to protect and stand your ground in your own property and no matter who they were they were breaking the law and you were there to commit a crime breaking the law trespassing and pulled a gun too.

    DA needs to be disbarred for life…breaking law and taking funds from a know terrorist group.

  30. John E. June 30, 2020

    To DA Kim Gardener, “Peaceful protestors” do NOT break down cast iron gates that, by the way, say Private Property, and then continue on and scream at and threaten the people who live therein. The Second Amendment to the U. S. Constitution ( you know, the document that YOU swore to uphold ?) gives the property owners the right to protect their property and lives from invading, illegal hordes.

  31. Melinda Cobb June 30, 2020

    Every one that showed up on that street needs to be arrested for trespassing and invasion of privacy. The DA needs to be fired for favoring special interests, not the public good.

  32. JACK Scarpon June 30, 2020

    THIS CRAZY DEMON RAT LUNATIC MUST BE REMOVED NOW!!

  33. Terry Steinhaus June 30, 2020

    Because Democrats don’t want you sharing the stupid things they are doing

  34. Albert Kunz June 30, 2020

    I’m really sad that they just didn’t light up the first row of that mob. The rest would have left in such a hurry that they may have trampled some of their own in the melee.
    In my neighborhood, there would have been a visit from the coroner & the County Sheriff’s office, taking down MY side of what happened
    for their official report.
    Shoot a couple of the rats & the rest will back off & run.

  35. Pusala June 30, 2020

    I’m so happy Florida has Stand Your Ground Laws. This couple faced down a mob and made it clear they would protect their home and their lives. Way to go!!! The Police are scared to confront protesters in fear of fanning the BLM flame, so they cannot be counted on.. What other choice did the couple have except defend themselves. The government/city officials created the conditions the couple had to deal with, now the DA wants to investigate them. What kind of logic are they using. The DA needs to have his house mobbed and see how he handles it.

  36. Kathleen Hotchkin June 30, 2020

    We need to strip the citenship if Soris. send him baak to his home country and let them deal with him!

  37. David Yragui June 30, 2020

    When you get rid of the sewer rats, your problems will be gone . for a while. please pray for some sanity.

  38. Meeche June 30, 2020

    This DA needs to be kicked out – These people he wants to charge were protecting their home and don’t tell me those were peaceful protesters! They broke down the gates of a gated community – This Soros backed democrat DA needs to be fired for not doing his job but doing the job his puppet master George Soros is telling him to do – prosecuting the innocent victims of these radical left wing mobs – America needs to wake up and vote every one of these crooked biased corrupt politicians out of office – they are backing the radical marxist left wing mob rather than the law. The protesters should have been arrested – they were on private property . We have a right to protect our homes and this is going to be the new law of the land unless these mobs are stopped – every real American will be armed and they will protect their homes

  39. Kay Brown June 30, 2020

    Give the Democrats more control and this country will go up in flames. Its about there now with leftist mobs. Those rioters need to be picking up garbage under armed guard instead of free to run amuck.

  40. Danielle Bauer June 30, 2020

    The protesters broke onto private property with mayhem in mind. The owners had every right to defend their property and lives. If this goes forward as this despicable DA wants…she needs to be thrown out. Understand election to do just that comes in August. Wake up folks. Vote this Soros price of work out on her ear.

  41. Jay hammer June 30, 2020

    Why would this Stl Luis day take money from a nazi. He sold his own people out. She needs to ask her law school for her money back . They didn’t teach her anything or she was too stupid to understand, so saddddd.

  42. Jesse June 30, 2020

    I say th e couple should file Malicious prosecution charges against that DA and ask not only for $1 Trillion plus any and all Court Costs as well as all legal costs of any kind to take the case to the US Supreme Court but that this DA be stripped of their Legal License for life as well as barring them from any level of elected or appointed governmental office. While they won’t see any money the DA could not find a lawyer to take their side of the case but the last thing would be good for all Americans.

  43. Timothy Smith July 1, 2020

    I think the couple used restraint not shooting a few of those jerks. I would advise in the future they learn about how to use available cover.

  44. Roy July 1, 2020

    tearing down a fence , trespassing, threatening, If the dam DA don’t want someone to respond to that she doesn’t need to be the DA. She has done many questionable things in the past. Liberal Mayor keeps her in there. Should have lost her job long ago..

  45. MB July 1, 2020

    This exactly what the Democratics have planned for America. Try and resist or protect yourself and you will ruined.

  46. Don July 1, 2020

    More to the point the idiotic DA needs to be pulled from office by his hair….if he has any. People have the right to defend themselves AND their property and if Missouri voters can’t see that,then let the state rot.

  47. Deborah Geyer July 1, 2020

    These marxist-backed politicos and lawyers are nothing but America-hating anti We the People. They are backed by deep state, deep pocket traitors. They want nothing more than to tear down Our American Nation.

  48. Anonymous July 1, 2020

    Amen!

  49. Robert July 1, 2020

    First question: Why isn’t George Soros in prison, or in the ground? I don’t understand why a known terrorist is allowed to walk free.

    Next, if I had the restraint to not shoot these idiots for breaking my gate and trespassing, I definitely would have shot everyone of them once they threatened me or my family.

  50. cg July 1, 2020

    I f a peaceful protest can destroy property and gates. Then they could be dealt a blow from a armed homeowner. Sound fair doesn’t it?

  51. Kevin Sur July 1, 2020

    I think the DA should be investigated and dis-barred for being on the payroll of Soros.
    This is corruption personified in this day and age.
    $190K is not a campaign donation it is a purchase price.
    Corrupt is corrupt is corrupt.

  52. Anonymous July 1, 2020

    I wish that Coward would show his Face at my House, If i fill Provoked, I will make sure that he does not Walk away.

  54. thomas robinson July 1, 2020

    Hey dipshits ! there was no “violent assault”, these people were”STANDING THEIR GROUND”, and had every right to do so ! your exaggerations are telling of your socialist leanings to lie about everything. !!

  55. Donna Pecoraro July 1, 2020

    Soros is the problem!
    Go get him!

  56. Donna Pecoraro July 1, 2020

    Go get him!

  57. Anonymous July 1, 2020

    Soros has his fingers in every crooked politicians pocket! Ms. Gardner is a disgrace. If it can be proven, then I pray SHE can be prosecuted for false accusations!

  58. Laurie Martindale July 1, 2020

    I do agree with your comment ‘s every American has the right to protect their property & Soros giving this AS so much money is so wrong & this couple had every right to protect with guns & Peaceful protests is VS they had guns & broke into a gated community & then threated to burn their house down & shoot their dog. Give me a Break I would have shot them. Arm yourself America against Antifa & BLM. All Lives Matter.

  59. H Dean Gates July 1, 2020

    That DA is as crazy as 9 kinds of hell. She hasn’t got sense enough to pour urine out o fa boot with the instructions written on the heel The hoodlums broke thru the fence and threatened to burn down their house, What were the home owners supposed todo, furnish them with the matches? Of course she is not stupid nor crazy, but mad with hate. She is a leftist, super liberal..

  60. Lucia Chastain July 1, 2020

    The protesters are known to be vicious and they came into private property. The DA must be desperate to go after a clearly terrified couple. There’s no excuse for what these protester terrorists have done to try to destroy these people. I would have done the same thing if in their shoes. That’s the whole reason people have guns! Where the hell were the police or security???

  61. John Fucoff July 2, 2020

    soros district attorney should be investigated and so should soros the ignorant piece of garbage he is

  62. Linda Marsh July 3, 2020

    Send your address to those thugs your address so they can protest in front of your house. These people were trying to protect their property. You’re filing charges against the wrong people

  63. Jimmy A July 7, 2020

    Those two “horrible” people who were defending their lives and property are also attorneys so yes please bring on a legal investigation of them – they will be ready for that too. And George Soros should be in prison for inciting hate and riots, right alongside Hillary, Obama, US Atty General Holder and Biden

  64. Anonymous July 7, 2020

    Agree

  65. Jeannette Downs July 8, 2020

    Am in agreement American citizens are free to protect themselves and their property this freedom is per the Constitution of the United States of America

  66. Chris Horner July 8, 2020

    You would think there is some law or laws already in place that make it possible to stop the flow of Soros money altogether. I dont understand why his assets aren’t frozen already.

    Funny how the same leftists who label everyone they don’t like a nazi have no problem taking money from a nazi sympathizer. Of course, their feminist movement is led by a Muslim in a hijab – so intelligence is obviously not their strong suit.

  67. Susan Wright July 16, 2020

    He is still free because people would prefer to have Americans murdered and accept money from people like Soros rather than act like loyal Americans and support our country.
