It was an act of terrorism and a hate crime…
WASHINGTON D.C. – James Hodgkinson of Belleville, Ill., opened fire on the group of Republican lawmakers as they were practicing for Thursday’s annual congressional baseball game for charity.
Hodkinson was a long time democrat and a recent volunteer on the Bernie Sanders campaign. Following Trump’s election he often expressed hatred for Trump and obsessed over losing the election. He was extremely angry that Bernie Sanders was defeated. Ironically, he blamed it all on Trump, not the DNC that actually torpedoed the Sanders campaign.
When Hodkinson arrived at the Washington D.C. ball park, he asked a witness if the men on the field were republicans or democrats. When informed they were republicans, he returned to his vehicle and retrieved a rifle. He then walked to the fence-line and opened fire on anyone on the field. Thankfully there were two plainclothes police officers present for security. They shot the would-be assassin dead before he could kill anyone, but several were wounded. Without an armed presence this shooting could have been far worse.
Now lets take a look at a few other shootings and see if there is any common denominator…..
The shooter who killed 20 and wounded 42 at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Omar Mir Siddique Mateen, was a registered Democrat who has voted in at least 3 recent general elections as a registered democrat.
The Ft. Hood shooter – Registered Democrat
Columbine shooters – Too young to vote but both families were registered
Democrats and progressive liberals.
Virginia Tech shooter – Registered Democrat – Wrote hate mail to President
Bush and to his staff.
Colorado Theater shooter – Registered Democrat; staff worker on the Obama
campaign; Occupy Wall Street participant; progressive liberal.
Connecticut School Shooter at Sandy Hook – Registered Democrat; hated Christians.
Congresswoman Gabby Giffords’ shooter – Leftist, registered Democrat.
I’m not saying that a democrat with a gun is inherently dangerous, but I am saying if the above had all been NRA members or republicans, the left would have had it all over the news and they would have used it as proof for more gun seizure laws.
How many more like Hodkinson are out here? God only knows, but I do know that the vicious rhetoric, the sheer nastiness of an organized campaign of hate, run by progressives, serve as a motivator for others like Hodkinson.
It’s time for the liberals to accept the fact they lost a legitimate free election. All these protest riots and acts of violence are only hurting their cause and America. If progressives really cared about this country they would call a halt to this nonsense.
