Unsurprisingly, The Guy Who Shot Congressional Members Was A Lefty

Obviously, this all means nothing, we certainly can’t blame all Liberals/Democrats/Progressives for the actions of one, right?

(Daily Beast)  The gunman who attacked members of Congress on Wednesday morning, wounding a GOP leader, campaigned for Bernie Sanders, called Republicans “racist,” and had run-ins with the law for domestic violence and shooting.

James T. Hodgkinson, 66, of Belleville, Illinois, opened fire on a congressional baseball practice outside of Washington, D.C., a senior law-enforcement official told The Daily Beast. President Donald Trump said the suspect died of his injuries.

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, two Capitol Police officers, and congressional staffers were wounded. They are all expected to survive, according to police.

Huh. Nothing to see here, move along

(Heavy) An anti-Trump, Republican-hating Bernie Sanders supporter with a history of domestic violence has been identified as the shooter who opened fire on Republican members of Congress Wednesday morning at a baseball field in Alexandria, Virginia, the Washington Post reports.

James T. Hodgkinson, 66, was from Belleville, Illinois, the newspaper reports. A motive for the shooting is not yet known, but Hodgkinson’s Facebook page shows someone who had a high interest in politics, who supported Bernie Sanders during the presidential election and expressed anger with President Donald Trump and Republican Congressmen.

Huh. Obviously none of the insane rhetoric from liberals such as


among others could have enticed this type of behavior.

Then this

(The Hill) The office of Rep. Claudia Tenney (R-N.Y.) received a threatening email with the subject line “One down, 216 to go…,” shortly after a shooter opened fire on GOP lawmakers who were at a congressional baseball practice, according to her office.

Certainly, the narrative has already been established that Hodgkinson is an outlier and not representative of Democrats or their violent or insurrectionist narratives, like that Trump stole the election with the help of Russia and they should #Resist out in the streets. This is what the Dems and their compliant media will push, and their brainwashed masses will push.

Now, imagine this was an unhinged Trump voter shooting Dem Congresspeople. What would that narrative look like?

    Guess Murder Trump in the Park will go on as scheduled.

  2. drowningpuppies says:

    The cowardly bernie bro, James T. Hodgkinson, is a little jeffy clone.

    • Well, come now, that might be a bit extreme, DP. I’m pretty darned sure that Jeff wouldn’t be the kind who would got apesh*t like this.

      • david7134 says:

        Actually, when I heard the run down on the guy, my first thought was that it would be Jeff. The left has gone nuts since their dream of a communist utopia was smashed.

      • drowningpuppies says:

        Perhaps, but as I wrote before the comments posted by Hodgkinson on social media concerning Trump and Republicans are eerily similar to the comments posted here by the little guy.

  3. david7134 says:

    Trump can put a stop to all of this by beginning the process of putting Hillary and the Obama administration in jail. They have failed to honor the peaceful transfer of power, so they should face the lawful consequences. Plus, something needs to be said about gun control. Here is a perfect example of where people are at the mercy of a nut with a gun. If just a few had a gun then many of the people would not have been hurt. But this area is a maximum gun control area, and we see that the bad guy was not worried about the law.

    • Dana says:

      I guess that he should have been, because there were Capitol police there, and they were armed.

      Mr Hodgkinson was from Illinois, a state which is whacko left over gun control, and has been controlled by the Democrats for years. How, one wonders, did he obtain a firearm while living in the Land of Lincoln?

    Actually, it is surprising that a “lefty” committed a multiple shooting. Usually it’s a right wing gun nut.

    Let’s hope everyone except the shooter is OK. Fortunately, so far, they’re all alive, and the shooter is dead.

    Several died when Gabby Giffords was shot, the last time a Congressperson was attacked.

    So TEACH thinks criticism of trump and the Republicans caused this?? Didn’t the right push back against this reasoning when Gabby Giffords was shot? Isn’t the right currently advocating assaulting the press, and doesn’t trump condone that? Didn’t Ted Nugent advocate violence?

    The loon anarchists that supported Sanders or trump are a danger. To his credit, President Trump did NOT make the situation worse, but was actually calming, as were the statements by other politicians.

    This was terrorism. Loons are motivated when they believe/imagine that they no longer have legal recourse. Timothy McVeigh thought the US culture was going down the tubes. Right-wing nuts bombed abortion clinics and murdered workers because they thought they had no recourse. They felt Obama was an authoritarian dictator ruling by fiat who deserved to be ousted or killed, and that Clinton would be just as bad.

    dave, of course, advocates more violence.

    • david7134 says:

      You are lying, again. You are a fool. And you have the same profile as the shooter.

    Right-wing pastor says ‘amen’ when guest wants to see Gov. Jerry Brown ‘hanging from a rope’


    and Sharon Angle:

    Angle: I feel that the Second Amendment is the right to keep and bear arms for our citizenry. This not for someone who’s in the military. This not for law enforcement. This is for us. And in fact when you read that Constitution and the founding fathers, they intended this to stop tyranny. This is for us when our government becomes tyrannical…

    Manders: If we needed it at any time in history, it might be right now.

    Angle: Well it’s to defend ourselves. And you know, I’m hoping that we’re not getting to Second Amendment remedies. I hope the vote will be the cure for the Harry Reid problems.

    Do you think the shooter in Virgina felt (wrongly) that he was “stopping tyranny” as Republican Angle advocated?

    • drowningpuppies says:

      You should know.
      Hodgkinson is your clone, little guy.
      Keep spreading the hate.

  6. Jeffery says:


    And yet I don’t go around shooting people. Anyway, my semi-auto rifles only hold 4 cartridges at a time as I don’t support the right-wing notion that all Amuricuns should have 100 round magazines.

    Do you think Americans should be willing to take up arms against a tyrannical federal government? You used to. During President Obama’s two terms it was all you Tea Baggers et al could talk about. “Don’t tread on me!” “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” “Kenyan usurper!’ “Rope, Obama, tree – you do the math!” “Revolution!”

    “Republicans hate women, minorities, working class people, & most all (99%) of the people of the country”

    Wonder who wrote that;
    Hodgkinson or little jeffuckery?

    Hint: Both

  8. Jeffery says:

    dave, Your comments are rich coming from an admitted white supremacist who advocates the secession of the New Confederacy.

    Republican policies harm women, working classes, LGBTs, the poor, the disabled, the infirm and minorities, while enriching the wealthy.

    And trump is even worse. If the truth hurts, you just have to live with it. Once the white working classes realize that trump lied to them, and that he has no intention of helping them in making their lives better, they will vote his party out of power. Help them? In fact his (and the GOPs policies) will make their lives worse! How will tax cuts for the wealthy help the working classes? How will losing their health care help them? How will dirty air and water help? Or his buddies sending even more of the jobs to China and India? How will his ties to Russian help the common American?

    Yet those truths do not support or advocate violence against the Rethuglicans, unless you consider the voting the scoundrels out of office as violent. Certainly you don’t object to namecalling, seeing as how it’s the lifeblood of you and the host.

    • drowningpuppies says:

      Don’t you have a ball field to scope out, little jeffuckery?

    • david7134 says:

      I am sorry, I forgot to and sick to your various talents of lying and being a fool. It is not worth the time and effort of exchanging comments with you as you lie, embellish, and generally act in a manner not becoming a responsible adult.

  9. drowningpuppies says:

    Republican policies harm women, working classes, LGBTs, the poor, the disabled, the infirm and minorities, while enriching the wealthy.

    That’s what your clone, Hodgkinson, wrote.
    See # 7.
    Sorry, little jeffuckery, you spout the same mindless hateful drivel and are just as guilty as he and the other leftists as to inciting violence against others…
    I’m sure you’re proud of your little doppelganger.

  10. Jeffery says:

    Dumb and Dumber,

    Didn’t your god-king call the FBI “bad and conflicted” today, saying they are conducting a “WITCH HUNNT”?

    What does trump have against the brave men and women in law enforcement? Don’t FBI agents have enough to worry about without having to duck right-wing extremists looking to protect trump?

    Doesn’t trump’s language contribute to the nation’s lack of decency?

    The difference between violent extremists who shoot people and those that rightly criticize the odious trump is that it’s the extremists who shoot folks. Usually, it’s right wingers, this time it wasn’t. We understand your desire to squelch all criticism of your god-king, even to the point of calling all his critics murderers.

    • drowningpuppies says:

      Little jeffuckery, why do you support and encourage other leftists to kill and/or maim others because they didn’t vote for bernie?
