GUNMAN: ‘KILL AS MANY REPUBLICANS AS POSSIBLE’
Gunman opens fire at congressional baseball practice…
Left-Wing TWITTER Celebrates…
Identified As Never-Trumper James Hodgkinson:
“Mr. President You Are Biggest A$$hole Ever”
Belongs to Anti-GOP Groups…
‘It’s Time To Destroy Trump & Co’…
These are some of the headlines popping up around the country following a shooting this morning at a congressional baseball practice for tomorrow’s annual charity game where GOP members were playing ball.
Law enforcement officials identified the shooter to be “James T. Hodgkinson” who apparently had been involved with anti-GOP groups and had recently posted online, “Trump is a Traitor. Trump Has Destroyed Our Democracy. It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co”.
He apparently asked at the ball field, “Are Those Republicans or Democrats Out There?” before he began shooting.
Later, Rep. Rodney Davis, R-Ill., specifically blamed “political rhetorical terrorism” – heated rhetoric on social media and in the news – for Wednesday’s shooting, in which House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and several others were wounded.
My question for you is this:
Will we look back at this as the first shot fired in this (up until now) non-shooting “civil war”?
Given the countless threats and suggestions of extreme violence against Trump and “the Right” that have been allowed and even promoted (by the mainstream media), has this been encouraging others to “act out”? Will there be more?
Lets hear from you:
Coincidentally, today from the Washington Times,
The first skirmishes of a second American civil war have begun. No, this is not a metaphorical analogy to that bloody conflict that killed approximately 620,000 Americans. It is an objective statement of the reality in America.
Since the election of 2016, the left has gone crazy. Their version of the Tea Party is called “Resistance” and the spearhead of that is a loosely formed terrorist group called “Antifa.” Antifa is short for Anti-Fascist. The irony of their name is not lost on those who actually know history, as their tactics are straight from the fascist playbook.
In the last few months, these groups have repeatedly disrupted peaceful pro-Trump rallies. They have called for and used violence against people who support the president, disagree with them and even against members of the media who will report things Antifa doesn’t want reported.
If this violence continues, the choices are not good. The left-wing academic establishment has quickly surrendered to these groups. They are allowed to riot on campus and even given relief from homework and exams so they can riot.
There was a time when Americans, despite their differences, clearly identified as Americans above all else. That time has now past.
“I don’t know how much more of this the country can take,”
“We are at a boiling point. There’s going to be a civil war,” he told his listeners Tuesday.
