In true 2020 form, we don’t have a Bonnie and Clyde, we have a Ken and a Karen. This couple pointed guns at peaceful protesters in St. Louis, Missouri outside of their lavish home in a gated community.
The protesters were largely peaceful; although the couple’s attorney said that the protesters had marched into the gated community and were on private property. The protesters were not bothering the couple. They were headed toward the mayor’s house to protest there. They are calling on her to resign after she read the names of protesters in a live update on Facebook.
The peaceful protesters were just walking by and this couple, Mark and Patricia McCloskey, pulled guns on them while barefoot on their lawn. The protesters were largely staying in the road and not bothering their home. However, That is not the scariest part of this story.
The scariest part is that President Trump retweeted the news story in praise of this couple. Instead of siding against racism, President Trump is once again fanning the flames of the racial divide.

In the wake of declaring the non-existent “Antifa” a terrorist organization and railing against Black Lives Matter protesters, Trump is just making the divide in this country even worse.
Antifa is simply a term that means anti-fascist and is mostly used by right-wing media organizations to spread lies regarding left-wing media and other leftist groups.
Trump has been spreading racism since his days of running for office. Now that public opinion is shifting toward anti-racism, our President is railing against this change.
Just last night, he doubled down on the racism by calling the Black Lives Matter movement a “symbol of hate.”
He tweeted the following about New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s decision to write “Black Lives Matter” on the street outside of Trump Tower:
“This will further antagonize New York’s Finest, who LOVE New York & vividly remember the horrible BLM chant, ‘Pigs In A Blanket, Fry ‘Em Like Bacon.’ Maybe our GREAT Police, who have been neutralized and scorned by a mayor who hates & disrespects them, won’t let this symbol of hate be affixed to New York’s greatest street. Spend this money fighting crime instead!”
