I am a creature of habit. One of my daily morning rituals, after snoozing my alarm at least twice, is to check my phone for the morning headlines and to have a look at trending topics on Twitter. The viral meme du jour this Monday morning was that of “Ken and Karen McBoomer,” who had the previous evening met a mob of angry protestors trespassing their private St. Louis property with an AR-15 rifle and a semi-automatic pistol.

Evidently, the mayor of St. Louis, a white woman named Lyda Krewson, had recently addressed the demands of constituents who were calling for the St. Louis police force to be defunded via a videoed Facebook Live briefing. During the briefing, she had read the names and addresses of several of the complainants, causing a backlash. The names and addresses of these people are a matter of public record. Nevertheless, the mob has accused her of “doxxing” the complainants and yesterday evening were marching to City Hall, I presume, to demand her resignation when the aforementioned confrontation with the “McBoomers” occurred. All indications are that the mainstream media is sympathetic to the concerns of this mob of “protestors.”

In their frenzy to oust the mayor, the mob ignored “private property,” “no trespassing,” and other signs indicating that the property and neighborhood were not situated on a public thoroughfare. They destroyed a wrought iron gate in the process of gaining access to the sidewalk adjacent to their affluent multistory residence. Despite this, the media has unanimously dubbed the mob “peaceful.”

As it turns out, the “McBoomers” are actually a professional couple named Mark and Patricia McCloskey. They are both attorneys, obviously of some financial means, who were enjoying their dinner at home when the ruckus and commotion of the mob invading their property alerted them. In an era when police are standing down and allowing rioters to destroy private businesses, one can empathize with the McCloskeys and their god-given right to defend their life and property.

After reading several mainstream articles about this story, a question occurred to me. How did the names of the McCloskeys surface? Did Mayor Krewson get on Facebook live and stream their names and address, along with their occupation, after hearing about the event?

It appears that a local CBS news affiliate, KMOV, was contacted by the McCloskeys who have subsequently given them a statement about what transpired. I’m sure that as attorneys, they knew that jumping ahead of the media and volunteering their statements was in their best interest, before the media had completely framed them as criminals with violent intent. (This didn’t work out as planned because they’ve done that anyway.)

That’s beside the point, however. Is there any doubt, whatsoever, that if the McCloskeys hadn’t voluntarily offered their statement, that the media would have doxxed them anyway, in their frenzy to expose “racists” and “right-wing extremists?” What if the McCloskeys hadn’t been wealthy attorneys with, I’m sure, a healthy bit of political acumen?

What if they’d been working-class white people, without the benefit of legal training? Would the media have restrained itself from blasting their personal information around the globe for all to see, with or without a voluntary statement? As attorneys, they probably have a layer of insulation from all of this simply by having connections in powerful places. What of the ordinary Joe White Man who lives paycheck to paycheck and lives in a mobile home park instead of an affluent gated community? Who would come to his defense?

Remember, the McCloskeys were just a husband and wife enjoying a quiet evening at home having dinner together. It’s just a matter of time before their entire lives will be made public, as undoubtedly legions of Left-wing sleuths are scouring the internet for damning Facebook posts as we speak.

Remember, the chief complaint of this “peaceful” mob (that destroyed a wrought iron gate and trespassed on private property) is that the mayor had “doxxed” Leftists who had written to her in favor of defunding the police. These are activists, people who engaged in the political system with intent, not that this really makes a difference, but they are willing political actors nevertheless. The demands of this mob have found sympathy with the very mainstream media who are currently providing the personal information of two innocent victims, the McCloskeys, who had not publicly engaged in politics at all in this matter.

There is no ambiguity here. The Second American Civil War is underway. Mark the date. Your grandchildren will be reading about it in their history books. Their opinion of you will be defined by who wins the war, and the actions you either chose or neglected to take.

After all, this war has already been declared by your enemy, even if you are peace-loving and unwilling. Battle lines have been drawn. The war plans were written years ago. There will be no innocent bystanders. There will be no conscientious objection. There will be no neutrality. Your uniform is the color of your skin, your belligerency defined by your DNA. Just as it was with the McCloskeys.

If you are a liberal and reading this, learn to protect yourself and learn to take your own side. When the mob comes after you, they won’t care that you were a “good ally.” If you’re a conservative, it’s time to ask yourself, “what is it exactly that I have left to conserve?” If you aren’t saying your own life and wellbeing, then you’re a lost cause.

    Boomers have gray or white hair. I don’t think those are boomers.

      Lol no. I’m mid 40s and I’ve got gray hair and I’m not a boomer. These people are in their late 50s to early 60s. Definitely Boomers. Being a boomer is about the year you were born, not the color of your hair

        Boomers are the generation born immediately after WWII (1946) and when JFK was assasinated (1963). Generation X is 1964 to when Reagan got in office (1980). Millenials were born around 1981 until when the Internet was public (1994). Zoomers were basically born in the late 90s until now? I’m not sure.

    There is no mob. There are troops directed by the usual suspects. Synagogues will never be attacked. “The mob” will kill rightists, that´s all.

      “Synagogues will never be attacked.”

      You bring up a very good point, certain writers (I can’t remember which) pointed out that during the French, and the Russian revolutions, banks, and synagogues were never attacked, but Christian churches, and other white institutions were. These occurrences indicate a (((Hidden Hand))) directing events.

      The “Heros” put out a statement defending black lives matter and proclaiming that all the “protesters” causing trouble where white.

        There’s two kinds of mob. The first mob holds the reins of power, enforces its artificial morality and so on has to be met with groveling and displays of appeasement to its religion.

        The second mob can only be met with guns. Obviously the religion of anti-whiteness stops when it comes to your front door.

        Whatever the flaws of the situation and these people who have made careers in the anti-white industry, there is still something deeply powerful and resonant about this image of a civilized middle aged White couple prepared to defend themselves against savagery. It’s heady stuff. I want to see more.

        Your comment about these ‘intruders’ was unknown to me. I’m furious with BLM, both Blacks and Whites and Whatevers. They are all Marxists. Read the Wikipedia bio of the founder, Patrisse Cullors. We are truly at war with this group and Antifa. But Americans are rolling over like lap dogs to ‘make nice’ with these destroyers. This seems to be what the McClosky’s are doing, maybe to save their own neck. And the TV news shots — probably from a cell-phone — of them showed mostly Black marchers, but of course, the news can cut out what it wishes. Nevertheless, these two homeowners are in deep trouble, as Marxists are vastly against ‘property ownership’, etc.

        And one side note: I had read or heard somewhere that this gated community was where the Mayor lived, and that was where the crowd was actually heading. But the McClosky’s house was directly next to the pedestrian gate, which was indeed torn down by the ‘peaceful protestors’, and the sound of that ‘tear down’ of a wrought-iron gate would have scared the daylights out of anyone!

    Oh, you’re right. They are 63 and 61, or something like that.

    A fine article with which I am in general agreement except for the statement that ‘There is no ambiguity here.’

    Yes, there is and that ambiguity is part of the turbulence associated with this emergent 4G war.

    The McCloskey’s are ‘civil rights’ attorneys. One of their current clients is a feral Negro suing STL for ‘excessive force’.

    Their letter makes a point of saying they support Black Lives Matter and that their weapons were only trained on the *White* people in the crowd.

    And yet, there they were, weapons out and, seemingly, prepared to use them. When one views the video and still images, it’s clear they are afraid.

    As a White husband and wife defending their (however luxurious) hearth and home, I admire and respect them.

    As rich Whites who are almost certainly race-traitors who prop up the racial enemies of Whites, I despise them.

    As has been often pointed out in matters of housing and schools, White liberals say one thing and do another. Such is the case here. The McCloskey’s support ‘Black Lives Matter’ until it spills over into their gated community and then they *act* like Aryan Nation.

    The ambiguities are not going to stop because the future that is dimly visible within them has yet to arrive.

    But it will.

      Well said. As soon as I saw they were “civil rights attorneys”, I completely lost sympathy for them. They apparently have gotten rich betraying their people. They are not “us”.

      Just a note–if I read various pieces correctly the McCloskeys’ “luxurious ” home was a historic house that was in disrepair when they bought it…and proceeded to sink huge amounts of their own money into its historic restoration.

      So we might conclude that this constitutes more actual conserve-atism than the vast majority of individuals wielding that label will ever exercise. This points to a rarely acknowledged slice of civilized life: the willingness of private individuals to invest in the memory of those who established their communities. That’s bigger than the usual left-right memes (though I do admit to a certain schadenfreude in two “civil rights” attorneys experiencing the outcomes of their careers in championing 1964’s establishment of a parallel, loxist system of law).

      Of course the communist mob wants to erase all that memory, both material and narrative, in pursuit of an eternal restless, rootless now, constantly remade through violence.

    Note on this,

    I literally wrote it the morning after it happened while having my morning coffee. Their statement had not been released. In light of that, my views have become more nuanced.

      Given the information available that AM, you make the perfect assessment. Or, at least, it’s the same assessment I made before finding out more. I’m reminded of something Dr. Johnson and others have said: Don’t hate your racial enemy more than you love your race. I think that applies here, even though our racial enemy is someone of our own race. I think the image of an armed White man and White woman standing outside keeping a feral mob at bay is a searing one, intrinsically White Nationalist whether the persons behind the image are race traitors or not. I have to prioritize their ‘Whiteness’ over their ‘liberalism’. I realize others might feel differently.

    I lived in the student ghetto about 3 miles from their home in St Louis in the mid 80s. The McCloskey home is in the Central West End (CWE) of St Louis City, the most affluent white neighborhood in the City and the closest to the Black ghetto north of Delmar Ave.

    The rest of the whites still living in the City are mostly south of I64

    The CWE is as good white and liberal as Portland or Boulder. The mainstream reports on the McCloskeys dont give that context.

    What a 5 minute web search reveals about the McCloskeys:

    They are aggressive personal injury lawyers who specialize in medical malpractice. In 2019 they represented a black man who sued the police. That’s about all they could come up with in the face of the media onslaught.

    They bought the villa in 1988 and restored it beautifully. Their law office is also in a restored historic building. Restoration seems to be their hobby. They don’t just plaster things over, but research the history of the building, hire the best workmen and artisans, and scour auctions for original items of furniture.

    They are white people who love white culture.

    They are lifelong Republicans and contributed to the Trump campaign. Already in the 1990s they were calling for more policing of the city.

    And when the mob came, they didn’t kneel.

    I would send them a copy of White Identity Politics with a polite letter, and invite them to join.

      Thank you for clarifying this for us. There has been a lot of disinformation about this whole incident from the start. By the way, I saw pictures of the house, both interior & exterior. The couple did a great job restoring it.
