Ordinary, mainstream, perfectly typical Democrat Socialist lunatic responds to the Democrat Socialists’ violent and eliminationist hate speech.
GOP House Majority Whip Steve Scalise is in a stable condition after a rabid left-wing activist named James Hodgkinso, 66, opened fire upon the house republican baseball team during practice Wednesday morning.
James T. Hodgkinson was a former campaign volunteer for Bernie Sanders. After asking if those practicing were Democrats or Republicans, he opened fire on players with a high powered rifle from the third base dugout (Eugene Simpson Stadium Park in Alexandria, Virginia) The group was taking grounders and practicing batting at around 7.00am.
Michigan Rep. Mike Bishop described how one man – thought to be part of Scalise’s Capitol Police protection detail – stood his ground to return fire as the congressmen and at least one of their children dove for cover in a dugout and Scalise dragged himself across the field after being hit, leaving a trail of blood behind him.
He told CBS Detroit: ‘As we were standing here this morning, a gunman walked up to the fence line and just began to shoot. I was standing at home plate and he was in the third base line. He had a rifle that was clearly meant for the job of taking people out, multiple casualties, and he had several rounds and magazines that he kept unloading and reloading.’
He said: ‘The only reason why any of us walked out of this thing, by the grace of God, one of the folks here had a weapon to fire back and give us a moment to find cover.’
‘We were inside the backstop and if we didn’t have that cover by a brave person who stood up and took a shot themselves, we would not have gotten out of there and every one of us would have been hit — every single one of us.
Anyone still wondering why the Democrat Socialists have always been so keen on disarming real Americans via unconstitutional gun bans and confiscation? Well, now you know: so we can’t defend ourselves when one of their own is gunning us down in cold blood for the crime of disagreeing with them, and electing someone they don’t approve of. And did someone mention the Democrat Socialist climate of hate? Why, yes. Yes, I sure as fuck did.
If the rhetoric of high profile Democrats is to be believed, GOP policies are the biggest killers of Americans next to heart disease, obesity, and cancer.
In May, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said an Obamacare reform bill Republicans have advanced would kill people.
“It is not an overstatement to say that some children will die because of this,” de Blasio said.
De Blasio wasn’t alone in his dire warnings over Republican efforts to fix Obamacare.
“This will cost American lives if it ever becomes law! This will mean death, pain, and suffering,” said Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.).
“They are threatening devastation in the lives of America’s families,” insisted House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). “This is deadly. This is deadly.”
“People are going to die if this bill that got passed yesterday ever became law. I’m going to lose a lot of folks. People are going to die!” claimed Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe.
“Thousands of Americans would die,” echoed Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).
“There’s no question that people will not only lose their health care, but many will lose their lives,” claimed Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.).
“It’s essentially producing policies are gonna kill people. We’re essentially going to be killing Peter to make sure that Paul gets his tax cut,” claimed Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.).
The liberal media have been just as hyperbolic on the supposedly lethal threat of GOP efforts to repair the nation’s health care system.
“The GOP Is Trying to Kill You,” claimed a January headline in “In These Times” magazine.
“The ‘pro-life’ party has become the party of death: New research on why Republicans hate poor and sick people,” said Salon.
“The House Passed a Health Care Bill That Will Kill People” declared the left-wing organization Media Matters for America.
And that was just the health care bill. To hear the Democrats tell it, the GOP’s welfare policies are driven by a murderous hatred of the poor; its immigration policies, by a murderous hatred of Latinos; its religious freedom and privacy policies, by a murderous hatred of gay and transgendered people; and its support for law enforcement, by a murderous hatred of black Americans.
Even this voluminous list is by no means comprehensive; it’s barely a drop in the bucket, and there are many more examples at the link. In truth, there are examples of it everywhere you care to look, the whole country has been inundated with them. After having been marinated in this vileness for decades now, the real questions are: how could this murderous Democrat Socialist NOT act on it? What took him so long? And why aren’t more like him stepping up to do the “right” thing, the “moral” thing, in accordance with the twisted depravity of the Democrat Socialist worldview?
Elsewhere, Hindraker fumbles:
As a general rule, it is foolish to pay attention to a “shooter’s” purported ideology.
Uh huh. Because in a shooting motivated purely by ideology, nobody should ever take the ideology into account. Y’know, like we insist on doing with the jihadis.
John gets back on track pretty quick, though. Mostly.
Most of them are just nuts. Maybe that is the case here too, although Mr. Hodgkinson (age 66) is not a typical, 20s-loner mass murderer. But for what it’s worth, Mr. Hodgkinson apparently is, or was until today, a perfect exemplar of liberalism; of progressivism; of the Democratic Party.
He was today, too, and will be tomorrow and the next day and the next, from now until Doomsday. No qualifier necessary, or desirable.
Make no mistake here: the Democrat Socialist Party, and especially its “mainstream” media cheering squad, has planted a gnarled, ugly, wholly grotesque tree in this nation, one whose fruit is entirely toxic but whose roots are buried deep within the shriveled souls of the Progressivist Left. They’ve nurtured it, they’ve watered it, they’ve cultivated it. And today it bore its bitter fruit.
They made their choices long ago. May they have joy of them at long last, and that right soon. For certain values of “joy,” that is.
