In case you missed it yesterday, Missouri Gov. Mike Parson pardoned Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the St. Louis couple who brandished guns at a group of Black Lives Matter protesters they said were trespassing on private property on their way to protest in front of the mayor’s house.

Rep. Cori Bush, who was part of the group of protesters, told CNN Wednesday that McCloskey had spat on her name and, because of that, “his day will come.” Sounds like the sort of threat that would make you want to have guns in your home.

"He has spat on my name. And because of that, his day will come." Sounds like a threat to me.

They should have never been charged with a crime. People were trespassing on their property. That wasn’t protest.

Why does @cnn allow this racist person on TV and threaten an outstanding citizen? This family was protecting their home and property but as we know, in a socialist country, there is no personal property. If @CoriBush were threatened, the person would be arrested but she won't.

At the end of the day, @CoriBush knows what her & the mob of rioters did was probably extremely frightening to this couple. (Screaming, threatening to burn home, hurt them, kill their dog, ruin their gate), yet she makes an actual verbal threat as a Rep. in Congress? Scary stuff.

Non-violent protesters when they saw weapons drawn.

His day did come. He was pardoned. Sounds like a great day.

It was their property and they felt threatened, given the political climate. They had every right to do what they did.
Cori should be seriously reprimanded for that comment. That’s a threat. She’ll get away with it because, Nancy Pelosi.

Threatened by the government……. There’s a word for that.

They got a pardon, but their weapons were confiscated. They need to give them back. 🤷♂️

Funny how the liberal networks headlined “protesters”. Glad to see corrected term being used trespassers. They should put personal civil lawsuits against all who protected this mob against them. Total injustice by all prosecutors against them. Absolute violation of rights!

Does @CoriBush know that the state of Missouri doesn't negotiate with Marxist terrorists?

They should get a restraining order. Cori Bush is unstable.

Which makes her a hero to leftist Democrats.
