Liberals’ hate for Trump drove Sanders’ supporter to shoot Republicans
Intentionally missing from the mainstream, left-wing media coverage of the attack on Republicans in Alexandria, Virginia is that the shooter was a Democrat. The 66-year old lunatic James Hodgkinson also volunteered for DEMOCRAT Senator Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign.
And this nut job wrote on his Facebook page on March 22, 2017:
“Trump is a Traitor. Trump has destroyed our democracy. It’s time to destroy Trump & Company.”
This isn’t the first time that a Sanders’s supporter has engaged in violence and the media ignored it. During presidential campaign in 2016, Sanders’s supporters disrupted a Donald Trump rally in Chicago with violence, forcing then candidate Donald J. Trump to cancel the event.
Liberal news outlets like ABC, NBC and CNN didn’t think it was worth mentioning the shooter’s connection with Sanders or making a big deal out of it. We know that they would have if the shooter had been a Trump supporter attacking Democrats.
Instead, these news outlets are talking about the need for more gun control laws, whether all members of Congress need security, and everything under the sun except the fact that Hodgkinson shot House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and several others at a baseball practice for a bi-partisan charity game only BECAUSE they were Republicans!
The liberal mainstream media is avoiding talking about the facts. Hodgkinson went on his shooting rampage that left Scalise critically wounded because Democrat leaders and liberal celebrities have created a climate of violence toward President Donald Trump with their open contempt for the president.
Hillary Clinton and Democrat members of the House and Senate incessantly hurling allegations that Trump colluded with Russia to steal the election.
Comedian Kathy Griffin holding up a bloody plastic head of Trump, joking that someone should commit an ISIS-like beheading of the president.
New York City Public Theatre’s production of Julius Caesar where the actor playing Caesar is dressed like Trump and of course assassinated by Brutus.
Then there’s this gem from actress Patti Lupone, who told a reporter that she hoped Trump won’t attend her Broadway show War Paint, “because I won’t perform if he does.”
When asked why, LuPone replied:
“Because I hate the motherf**ker,” she said. “How’s that?”
Bazaar Magazine’s headline on LuPone’s remarks rejoiced about her “100 percent fabulous response.”
If LuPone were a conservative actress, who said the same thing about former black President Barack Obama, she would have been called a racist. But somehow, liberal publications and news outlets think the more outrageous and crude comments that people make about Trump the better.
Liberals have created the current climate of hate that emboldened a deranged Hodgkinson to shoot innocent Republicans playing a game of baseball.
As Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) and Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) were leaving baseball practice early Wednesday, Duncan said the shooter asked him if the team practicing was Republican or Democrat. Thinking there was no harm in answering, Duncan replied “Republicans.”
During a meeting Tuesday, I explained to some people who were unaware of the attack that Congressman Scalise had been shot.
A black woman asked me: “Was he a Republican or Democrat?”
I replied: “Republican. Does it matter?”
She rolled her eyes and turned up one side of her mouth.
God help America if being a Republican can now get you killed.
