On top of being a rabid Socialist Democrat and Senator Bernie Sanders supporter, 66-year-old James T. Hodgkinson of Belleville Illinois, the scumbag who shot multiple people at a Congressional Baseball game practice and almost killed Republican Congressman Steve Scalise had actually visited Bernie Sanders’ office before that morning’s shooting.
And to make matters even worse for the Democrats and their violent Anti-Trump rhetoric of “Resist at all costs.” This would be killer was also in email contact with both of the senators from his home state of Illinois. Senators Tammy Duckworth and Dick Durbin which are both scumbag far left extremist Liberals themselves. Do we need any more proof as to who instigated this mentally disturbed individual? Interesting don’t you think?
Violent Rhetoric of Left Called Out Many Times Before Shooting
“Someone is going to get hurt — or worse.”
I wrote those words in this space in a February column entitled “Democrats’ Rhetoric Risks Violence.”
Five people got hurt this week when one of the left’s shock troops, James T. Hodgkinson, no doubt acting on the hateful political anti-Trump rhetoric and actions of the left, opened fire on several Republican congressmen and senators practicing for a charity baseball game in Alexandria, Virginia. Before being killed by U.S. Capitol police, he critically wounded House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., and injured four others.
Hodgkinson was a supporter of former Vermont Socialist Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, a Trump hater and a loyal member of the Trump so-called “Resistance.” You can bet that he will be celebrated in the secret dungeons of the far left by many Trump haters as a true martyr in their war of Resistance against the Trump agenda. To give them cover, Resistance supporters in the elite media and Democratic establishment condemn his actions.
The chickens of vile political rhetoric, hateful images and obscenities directed at Trump and his agenda by Democratic politicians and their progressive allies — including the New York Times, Washington Post and certain cable news network hosts — have finally come home to roost!
I believe that the failure of so many liberals and Democratic leaders to condemn hateful actions and comments of their own supporters sent a message that they tacitly supported them. That obviously was not lost on the shooter and led to bloodshed! To date, no lives have been lost!
Democrats and their cohorts in the entertainment and media industry who have aided and abetted the atmosphere of hate and vitriol no doubt gave the shooter comfort. Assassinating a few Republicans would bring him covert praise from the left just as ISIS praises those who commit terroristic acts.
The left uses every kind of invective to degrade and demean Trump and his supporters as infidels just like ISIS labels their perceived enemies.
If it is okay to call for the frying of cops like bacon; pretend you are shooting, beheading, or stabbing the president; or, destroy property and prevent conservatives from speaking without any condemnation from Democrat leaders, then why not go the next step and kill a few of the infidels?
Keep in mind that it was not Trump supporters spewing hatred and despicable words against those with whom they had political disagreements. It was the Democrats’ key allies: from violent street and college campus protesters, potty-mouth politicians ranging from the Chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) Tom Perez, the F*** Donald Trump chant at the California Democratic Party convention to the “F” bomb peppered anti-Trump remarks of New York Democrat Senator Kirsten Gillibrand at New York University. None of these actions merited any criticism from Democrat leaders.
Of course, after the shooting, the hypocrites were quick to express shock and dismay.
Senator Sanders rushed to the Senate floor to condemn violence and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Ca., said the shooting was an “injury in the family…we will use this occasion as one that brings us together, not separates us further.”
Give me a break!
Both are hypocrites on this issue and their comments were a day late and a dollar short!
Where was Sanders months ago on the violence against Trump supporters? Where was he when the Black Lives Movement urged the killing of police? Where was his condemnation of Kathy Griffin, the New York Shakespeare play depicting the assassination of Trump or the Snoop Dogg video of him shooting the President?
As to Pelosi, not more than 24 hours after her statements on the need for unity, she showed her real colors saying Trump’s rhetoric contributed to the shooting. Pelosi wanting unity is like an arsonist wanting to put out a fire!
If you want to know who is serious about ending the division, just look at who has been calling for less harsh rhetoric — mostly Republicans. Most Democrats are as silent about ending the harsh rhetoric as they were in condemning it!
Let’s hope that the violence ended in Alexandria and that radicals on the right do not decide to retaliate believing that retaliation is the only way to gain attention and respect in media, entertainment and political environment where they have been defamed.
It is a sad day in our country when such thoughts even have to be stated!
But in a truly frightening development, the FBI announced yesterday that it will be treating the shooting as an “assault,” not as the terrorism we all know it was. Although the shooter had obvious cult-like political leanings towards the Democrat Party and it’s far left tendencies bordering on Marxism. The FBI will also be ignoring such facts as the shooter belonging to a group on Facebook called “Terminate The Republican Party” and premeditating the shooting by carrying a list of names of the House Freedom Caucus members on his person when the shooting took place. I guess the only way the FBI will deem you a terrorist is if you own a Confederate flag or are named Ahmed.
“At this time the FBI has assessed that the deceased shooter, James T. Hodgkinson, acted alone. We also assess that there was no nexus to terrorism. The FBI is investigating the shooting as an assault of a member of Congress and assault on a law enforcement officer,” Vale said.
Are you freaking kidding me? This deceased shooter should be declared a domestic terrorist and Bernie Sanders, along with every other Democrat hack should be charged with being an accomplice to a terrorist act against out nation.
A 20-year-old Massachusetts woman was just found guilty of manslaughter for urging her boyfriend to commit suicide through texts she sent him while he was contemplating killing himself. She was just 16-years-old when this happened. How is this case any different from what the Democrats are doing on a day to day basis with their supporters? Why does a 16-year-old girl have to pay the price but the likes of Bernie Sanders who at his ripe old age should know better, get off without a scratch? It’s called “Political Class Privilege.” Add that to your dictionary of victimhood Democrats.
