Defending the family

Mark and Patricia McClosky, American Heros

America needed one man and one woman to stand up to the lawless mob and defend their lives and their property from sure destruction. Standing shoulder to shoulder with his wife, Mark McClosky, a Saint Louis lawyer, held his rifle and confronted the mob armed and ready to defend his home and life.

"Mark McClosky and his wife Patricia McClosky are Mr. and Mrs. America at the moment for simply standing their ground and prevent a possibly deadly situation from impacting their lives. Threats continue for this brave couple but the nation stands with them against the lawless mob that would burn any city down and kill victims for no reason with their terrorist actions, while urban mayors encourage them or do nothing about it," says Eugene Delgaudio, president of Public Advocate.

It is Public Advocate's great honor to name Mark McClosky and Patricia McClosky as Family Advocate.

The New York Post reports:

The St. Louis legal eagle who, along with his wife, confronted Back Lives Matter protesters in their swanky neighborhood insisted that the only thing that kept the "mobsters" at bay was the fact that the couple brandished guns, according to a report.

"I believe in my heart of hearts that the only thing that kept those mobsters, that crowd, away from us is that we were standing there with guns," Mark McCloskey, 63, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on Wednesday.

"If I was in the same situation, I'd do it all again," the lawyer said in an interview at their mansion. "The bottom line was, I was there to protect my family and my house and myself."

McCloskey and his wife, Patricia, told the outlet that they had prepared for violent activists - leaving fire extinguishers in every first-floor room and a rifle in the living room - after neighborhood homeowner trustees warned them that the protest group was expected to show up.
