Make no mistake, Spartans – this was an act of terrorism. You don’t have to wear a black mask and yell Allahu Akbar to be a terrorist. And this terrorist was radicalized by the Democrat Mainstream Media. How is Bernie Sanders not in jail right now? This guy Hodgkinson worked for his campaign and threatened Trump back in March.
House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, of Louisiana, was shot in the hip, but is stable and recovering after surgery, according to his staff. Four others — including two Capitol Hill police officers — also were wounded in the shooting.
NBC News reported there was “political or domestic motivation” behind Hodgkinson’s attack, not international terrorism. However, the FBI is investigating it as a “deliberate attack,” CNN reported.
To wit, Reps. Ron DeSantis and Jeff Duncan said as they were leaving the baseball practice early, they were approached by a man who asked if those were Democrats or Republicans practicing on the field.
Hodgkinson’s purported Facebook page, which has since been removed, featured a picture of Sen. Sanders.
In March, Hodgkinson posted that “Trump is a Traitor. Trump Has Destroyed Our Democracy. It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co.”
Another post, from 2015, was aimed at Scalise, according to the Post.
“Here’s a Republican that should Lose His Job, but they Gave Him a Raise,” Hodgkinson purportedly wrote, including a political cartoon that portrayed Scalise speaking to a group of people clad in Ku Klux Klan hoods, the Post reported.
Sanders on Wednesday denounced the attack.
“I am sickened by this despicable act,” Sanders said in a statement. “Let me be as clear as I can be. Violence of any kind is unacceptable in our society and I condemn this action in the strongest possible terms.”
Sanders confirmed reports that Hodgkinson had worked on his campaign as a volunteer.
Exit question: Ever notice, the left ALWAYS decries violence AFTER violence has occurred, NEVER before?
