Why Permit Karen is far worse than Kalashnikov Ken

One person stood their ground against aggressors. The other person was the aggressor.

Couple point guns at protesters
Just another Sunday night in St. Louis

This week, two very different images of supposed “white entitlement” went viral.

In St. Louis, “Kalashnikov Ken”, otherwise known as Mark McCloskey, confronted a mob that he claims broke into his property and threatened to kill him and his wife. If we take his claims at face value – and they were at least partially supported by photo and video evidence – then he was well within his rights to defend himself.

He didn’t seek to encroach on others. They invaded his private domain.

After that fact, McCloskey’s own skin color, his declared support of Democrats and Black Lives Matter, and his insistence that the aggressors were white are all irrelevant.

The contrast with “Permit Karen” couldn’t be starker.

The woman, Montclair’s Susan G. Schulz, encroached on the property of a neighboring couple, badgering and berating them about a document that they didn’t even need to have. The couple she targeted are Black.

This is loathsome behavior whomever it is targeted at. When she didn’t get what she was looking for, she made a disgraceful decision to allege assault and call the police.

Whatever anyone says, we can’t know whether Schulz behaved the way she did primarily because of the physical appearance of her neighbors. It’s possible she felt better than them for that reason. It is also possible that she’s just a highly annoying busybody who would irritate the hell out of anyone near her, whatever their national or ethnic origin.

America has always been about plowing your own furrow, doing your own thing. So long as you don’t hurt anyone else, you should be allowed to do you. The right to defend yourself is also a profoundly American value.

Missouri’s McCloskey fits fairly into that laudable tradition. Montclair’s Permit Karen is the antithesis of it.

This is spot on! Something about all that vitriol against the guy in St Louis didn’t sit right but you’ve nailed it here

Have to say, profoundly disagree with this. The first guy is definitely a racist, pure and simple. As for permit Karen for you to suggest this was about anything other than the race of that couple is frankly disgusting
