nbcwashington.com “House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and four other people were shot and wounded Wednesday morning as the Republican congressional baseball team held an early-morning practice in Alexandria, Virginia.”
bnd.com “The shooter who fired at congressmen and aides during practice for a baseball game Wednesday morning is from Belleville.
The shooter is James T. Hodgkinson of Belleville, who belongs to a number of anti-Republican groups, including one called “Terminate the Republican Party.”
Hodgkinson, 66, owns a home-inspection business. Hodgkinson was a licensed home inspector from 1994 to 1997, when his license expired, according records from the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation. He also held a license from 2003 to 2016, but it was not renewed.
Two days ago, Hodgkinson posted an angry tweet about President Donald Trump on Facebook.
“I Want to Say Mr. President, for being an ass hole you are Truly the Biggest Ass Hole We Have Ever Had in the Oval Office,” he wrote on Facebook.”
The Smoking gun; “The gunman who opened fire this morning on Republican congressmen and staffers recently declared in a Facebook post that, “It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co.”
The Week; “Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) recounted an "odd" encounter he had as he was leaving the field just minutes before the shooting: "There was a guy that walked up to us that was asking whether it was Republicans or Democrats out there, and it was just a little odd," DeSantis told Fox News.”
The left continues to hurl accusations of violence at the right yet it seems most of the actual and imitated violence is from the left. The liberal, tolerant left can’t tolerate any deviation from their group think.
The leaders of the Democratic Party are not helping.
They keep pushing and their demented followers will act. The hate the left has knows no bounds.
