“You have to send people to D.C. that are willing to tell the truth and fight for our freedom regardless what have it costs you personally, economically, or socially.”
St. Louis attorney Mark McClosky made headlines in October when he defended his property with a gun after BLM protesters entered their gated neighborhood.
Now McClosky is running as a Republican to replace retiring GOP Sen. Roy Blunt.
McClosky started a Senate campaign even though a grand jury indicted him and his wife Patricia on unlawful use of a weapon and tampering with evidence charges last October.
They should stand trial in November.
McClosky released a video and website on Tuesday:
“Never Back Down. Our Nation is under attack – Big Tech, Big Business, the swamp in D.C., are all working together to destroy our God-given freedom, our culture, and our heritage” the ad begins. ” When was the last time a politician defended you? Defended America? Stood between you and the mob? We need defenders in America. But all we get are dividers. They want us to hate each other. Left vs. Right. Black vs. White. Rich vs. Poor. This is a tactic to destroy us. We are all AMERICANS. We are MISSOURIANS. Our nation, our state, our home is worth defending. Our freedoms are worth protecting. I can promise you one thing. When the mob comes to destroy our home, our state, our nation – I will defend it. I will Never Back Down.”
An angry mob marched to destroy my home and kill my family, I took a stand to defend them.
I am a proven fighter against the mob
When the mob comes to destroy our home, our state, our nation— I’ll defend it
I will NEVER BACK DOWN

McClosky announced his Senate run on Tucker Carlson’s show on Tuesday night. He basically repeated his campaign video:
“God came knocking on my door disguised as an angry mob. It really did wake me up,” he said.
“As I campaigned for [Donald Trump], and we’ve continued to do rallies and events supporting our constitutional rights, what I’ve learned is that the people are sick and tired of cancel culture – and the poison of critical race theory and the big lie of systemic racism.”
“People are sick of it, they don’t want any more posers or egotists going to D.C. All we hear is talk. Nothing ever changes,” he said.
“It seemed to me that people have to stand up. Each and every one of us needs to stands up and say we are not sheep, we are a free people.”
“You have to send people to D.C. that are willing to tell the truth and fight for our freedom regardless what have it costs you personally, economically, or socially,” he added.
“If we don’t stand up now and take this country back, it’s going away. We used to talk about the erosion of our civil liberties… [S]ince [the Biden] administration took over there has been the wholesale slaughter of our civil liberties and institution of what can’t be called anything but socialism.”
