Inside Gun-Surrendering Criminal Mark McCloskey's Very Sad St. Louis Rally

Noted local criminal Mark McCloskey played host to a barbecue/political rally on Sunday afternoon, drawing tens of admirers to the sweltering parking lot of a closed outlet mall in St. Louis County to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the time he pulled a gun on a crowd of people who otherwise would never have noticed or cared he existed.

Despite the fact that none of the big names who had been billed to speak at the June 27 event showed up, and despite the fact that ticket sales were so dismal attendance was opened to the public for free at the last minute, St. Louis' most gun-surrendering lawyer plowed right ahead with the First Annual Pink Shirt Guy BBQ and RINO Roast in the St. Louis Mills parking lot.

Grievance and untethered delusion topped the menu at the event, with McCloskey and a roster of speakers largely unknown outside the fever swamps of the far right taking turns condemning everything from critical race theory (their newest and most nonsensical bogeyman) to "cultural Marxism" (George Soros' fault of course, but how dare you level accusations of antisemitism) to the "radical left" agenda of (hahahahaha) Joe Biden. The whole gun-and-pony show was in service of McCloskey's deeply stupid run for U.S. Senate, because if there's one thing that qualifies a man for public office in the Republican party in 2021 it's a willingness to point a firearm at those with whom you disagree politically.

Initially, fellow criminal and proponent of armed coups Michael Flynn was scheduled to speak, but he was subbed out for North Carolina Congressman and notably dumb guy Madison Cawthorn, who also did not show up. But the show must go on, as they say, and so we were instead primarily treated to the emcee abilities of former radio host Jamie Allman, who lost his longtime job back in 2018 after taking to Twitter to pontificate about ramming a hot poker up a teenager's ass.

They were at least kind enough to wear their signature outfits, which is good because no one would recognize or care about them otherwise.

McCloskey's throngs of supporters watch as his speaks.

3. Sometimes the follow-ups are the most entertaining.

I'm glad that I ran across the story and could share it.

2. Pink shirt with asshole alligator patch

and AK47... sort of reminds me of a Clockwork Orange... totally incongruous... except in the Kubrick film the bowler hats and codpiece were kinda frightening... here the pink alligator shirt just looks sad.

6. I'm sure that LaCoste is really pleased that the alligator has been co-opted by the arseholes.

Though people in France wear them without any hint of assholishness showing through.

7. McCloskey's probably been wearing them since he was just an asshole in a college fraternity.

5. Crowd ?

8. So he commits a gun crime

But is still allowed to run around in public with guns? That seems.. not right.
