H8ers Gonna Kill — A politically motivated attack on Republican congressmen at a baseball field in Virginia this morning, June 14, shows that those with large platforms better be as careful with what they say as they demand average folk to be with firearms.
House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA1) was wounded and is in stable condition. Two Capitol Police officers were also wounded with non-life threatening injuries as was Zack Barth, who is legislative correspondent for Congressman Roger Williams (R-TX25).
Scalise is the third-ranking member of the House of Representatives.
The shooter, who was killed by the Capitol Police security detail, has been identified as James T. Hodgkinson, 66, of Belleville, Ill.
Hodgkinson reportedly inquired if those on the field were Republicans before opening fire with a rifle. His Facebook page promiently features Socialist-progressive Bernie Sanders. On March 22, he posted: Trump is a Traitor. Trump Has Destroyed Our Democracy. It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co.
If one does not think that bloody images of our president presented by people praised by our elites don’t give license for violence then they are either delusional fools or employees at establishment media outlets.
The most dangerous person is one who thinks he’s inherently good and that fits the bill for self-proclaimed progressives. This type does not feel any need to try to understand those who disagree and finds himself able to justify any action whether it be slander, theft, vandalism, sexual abuse, and murder.
