Last week, Republican Congressmen were targeted for assassination after deranged anti-Trump nutcase James T. Hodgkinson opened fire on congress’ baseball team practice at a Washington suburb field. As liberals around the nation continue to celebrate following what they view as a “victory” for their side, now another unhinged liberal has just made a terrifying declaration of war on conservatives. But who is behind this latest call for bloodshed is absolutely shocking, because it’s a prominent member of the Democratic Party.
We’ve learned in recent days that Hodgkinson wasn’t just a random liberal, but noteworthy member of the Democratic party, having worked as a campaigner for socialist Bernie Sanders. But now things are taking a startling turn for the worse. Following in Hodgkinson’s footsteps, we now have a Democratic strategist by the name of James Devine calling for bloodshed, after the vile thing he told anti-Trumpers around the nation to rise up and do. Immediately after learning that Congressman Steve Scalise was clinging to life at a local hospital after being nearly assassinated, Devine gave this chilling directive for liberals to “hunt republicans” across the country.
“We are in a war with selfish, foolish & narcissistic rich people,” wrote James Devine on Twitter. “Why is it a shock when things turn violent? #HuntRepublicanCongressmen.”

His vile remarks soon caught the attention of the media, but Devine wasn’t backing down. He told WKXW-FM Thursday that he wasn’t apologizing for his literal war on Republicans, while calling anyone who didn’t agree with his terroristic orders “offended snowflakes.”
“It is insensitive, and I don’t care. You want me to be politically correct? I don’t have time for that anymore,” James Devine told WKXW-FM Thursday. “I’m not apologizing if it offended snowflake Republicans.”
The Democratic strategist responded that the attack was the Right’s fault, and that the chickens just “came home to roost.”
“It speaks for itself. Yesterday’s events are the result of escalating rhetoric and vitriol that has been evident in our political system culminating with the election of our president and the chickens came home to roost, you know?”
He went on to say, “I am sorry if my #HuntRepublicanCongressmen hashtag hurt the feelings of any GOP snowflakes but you have not engaged in civil discourse,” Devine said on Twitter following the backlash.
What’s even more bizarre is that Devine then tried to evoke the Second Amendment as justification for the assassination attempt on GOP Congressmen, saying that James T. Hodgkinson was simply “exercising his right to bear arms.”
“Well, now that we have a tyrannical government, to use another Republican’s words, James Hodgkinson is a citizen availing himself of his Second Amendment remedies.”
Devine told MyCentralJersey.com that “other people might be woken up to the fact that this is nothing that wasn’t invited by things like Sarah Palin’s crosshairs on Gabby Giffords before she was shot.”
Devine also wrote on Facebook that he has “little sympathy for the Republican Congressman who got shot today because he viciously opposed President [Barack] Obama’s effort to reduce gun violence and instead, he accepted more gun lobby money than all but 15 other members of the House of Representatives.”
A spokesman for New Jersey Democratic State Committee Chairman John Currie told MyCentralJersey.com the organization “is in no way associated with Mr. Devine’s hashtag” and “we reject incitements to violence and deplore such sensationalism.”
Devine shared with the outlet that while he doesn’t excuse violence, Republicans who use offensive rhetoric should not expect to be at ease – violence will find them:
“If you want to behave in an uncivilized and violent manner, which I do not condone, but if you want to operate under those circumstances, then you have to be prepared to accept those consequences.”
He went on to spewing his ultra progressive rhetoric talking points, like lawmakers should be concentrating on passing better gun-control laws (the majority of American DON’T want that, idiot) and toning down brutal rhetoric (like stabbing an actor playing Trump on stage, Or holding a fake bloody head of Trump), but that Trump instead called for violence during his campaign.
“He offered to pay the legal fees of people who assaulted his political critics. Yes, I do think that Donald Trump encouraged people to take matters into their own hands and to use violence.”
“For too long, these snowflakes in the Republican party that are wringing their hands on Fox News at night, well they have to realize something: this is 15 years in the making.”
It’s time we wake up and realize that Muslim terrorists could soon be the very least of our concerns. Prominent members of the Democratic Party are now inciting terrorism in our own country, while using the First Amendment to shield them from any type of punishment. We must stop letting these domestic terrorists inspire violence and murder while hiding behind the Constitution, as their continued calls for violence and bloodshed in our streets are being taken literally by these anti-Trumpers across America.
Share this story if you think James Devine is a domestic terrorist who needs to be arrested for inciting violence! This insanity in our country has to stop!
