Addicted to Hate: Pelosi Ditches ‘Unity’ in <24 Hours
Shooter attempts massacre of Republicans days after HuffPo piece
THE “RESISTANCE” SHOT A REPUBLICAN CONGRESSMAN TODAY
After losing the election, Democrats decided to rebrand as the “Resistance”. Now Resistance street violence has escalated into an assassination. But that’s what a “Resistance” does.
If Republicans are just fascists and President Trump is a tinpot dictator, well you shoot fascists and dictators, don’t you?
Our political system depends on a consensus. Everyone fights it out at election time. And then goes back to work the next day. When you reject the results of an election and try to reverse it, some will try to reverse it with fake news scandals and impeachment efforts.
Others will just pick up a gun.
And there’s no point in pretending that James Hodgkinson wasn’t a product of the left’s hate machine which encompasses everything from the evening news to the crazier sites out there. When James Hodgkinson declared that it’s time to “destroy” Trump, how many on the left would have disagreed?
The only question is how many more like James Hodgkinson are there out there?
There are two ways to look at a “Resistance”. Either they’re correct and we’re living under a fascist dictatorship and then any and all tactics to overthrow it, including shooting Republicans and the children of their staffers practicing for a charity baseball game, are on the table.
Or they’re terrorists.
The left is a terrorist organization. The Resistance Democrats that allowed these radicals to take over and joined them are turning their political faction into a terrorist organization.
The test is easy. It goes beyond just condemning James Hodgkinson. The real test is how many elected Dem officials after this will reject the rhetoric and branding of the “Resistance”. How many of them will have the courage to condemn it?
I’m going to guess between 1 and 0.
Maybe now the anti-gun rights Democrats will support everyone’s right to carry a firearm for self-defense
SAF: SCALISE SHOOTING IS RESULT OF DEMOCRATIC HATE SPEECH
By June 14, 2017 by Second Amendment Foundation
BELLEVUE, WA – Today’s shooting of Congressman Steve Scalise (R-LA), and others including an aide and two Capitol Police officers is the result of Democratic hate speech toward President Donald Trump and majority Republicans, the Second Amendment Foundation said today.
“This hate speech that has been going on since Donald Trump was elected,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. “It gets their voter base agitated and this is what happens as a result. Is this just a coincidence this happened on the president’s birthday?”
The gunman has been identified as James Hodgkinson of Illinois. A Facebook page belonging to the fatally-wounded suspect suggests that he was a socialist Democrat, and was a follower of Sen. Bernie Sanders. Sanders confirmed that Hodgkinson was apparently a volunteer in his 2016 presidential campaign.
“When liberal leftists support the assassination of President Trump on stage what do you expect to happen,” Gottlieb stated. “Hate speech and actions incite this kind of violence. It is time for Democrats like Reps. Maxine Waters and Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Chuck Schumer, Barrack Obama and Hillary Clinton and many of the talking heads at CNN and MSNBC to shut up.”
“Congressman Scalise and others at the field this morning were lucky to have the protection of courageous Capitol police officers, the good guys with guns who took down a bad guy with a gun,” he continued. “But what if they hadn’t been present?”
Congressman Mike Bishop of Michigan, who was at the baseball field, told a reporter, “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.”
“Maybe now the anti-gun rights Democrats will support everyone’s right to carry a firearm for self-defense,” Gottlieb said. “We are the first line of defense when it comes to personal protection from crazed individuals.”
“I can only concur with what President Trump said this morning,” he concluded. “We are blessed to be Americans, and we are strongest when we are unified and when we work together. Those responsible for this campaign of hate have no place in our society. You own this.”

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – What started as a regular, early-morning baseball practice at Eugene Simpson Stadium Park in Alexandria, Virginia Wednesday morning quickly turned terrifying after shots were fired, and House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) was hit, along with three others including a U.S. Capitol Police officers. In all, about 25 members of Congress from both parties were there taking part in preparation for a charity baseball game scheduled for Thursday at Nationals Park.
After the shooting stopped, Democrats who were practicing at the same field gathered in a dugout to pray. A photo posted on social media by Rep. Ruben J. Kihuen (D-Nevada) shows the group huddled in a dugout with their heads bowed. On Facebook, Rep. Kihuen wrote along with the photo,”Me and my House Democrats colleagues saying a prayer for our House Republicans and Senate GOP baseball colleagues after hearing about this morning’s horrific shooting at their practice field.”
Scalise and several others, including Congressional aides and members of his security detail, were wounded in the shooting, which happened around 7:30 a.m. at Eugene Simpson Stadium Park on East Monroe Avenue in Alexandria. U.S. Capitol Police said officers who were part of Scalise’s security detail returned fire and killed the shooter.
Other members of Congress who were at the field at the time of the shooting described seeing a rifle through a fence when they heard shots being fired.
Thursday at her weekly news conference, when asked about negative discourse playing a role in the shooting of Republicans practicing for a congressional charity baseball game, which critically injured House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA), Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said Republicans began the current level of coarse political rhetoric attacking President Bill Clinton in the 1990s.
She then pointed to then-candidate Donald Trump joking at a campaign rally, “I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters.”
Pelosi said, “Let’s all say, let’s examine our conscience, let’s see how we can rid ourselves of our negative attitudes that go to a place that is like this. We’ve had—it didn’t use to be this way. Somewhere in the 1990s, Republicans decided on the politics of personal destruction as they went after the Clintons and that is the provenance of it and is what has continued. Again, I feel as if we’re having a family moment that is very, very serious and we’re talking about things that we can say, the discussion—save the discussion for another day. When you have a president that says I can shoot somebody on 5th Avenue and nobody would care, when you have people saying beat them up and I’ll pay their legal fees, when you have all the assaults that are made on Hillary Clinton, for them to be so sanctimonious is something. I really am almost sad that I had to go down this path with you, because I don’t think it’s appropriate for us to have the fullest discussion of it. And it will be for another day. It will be for another day.”

Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) talked with Breitbart News DailySiriusXM host Raheem Kassam on Thursday regarding his experience at the GOP baseball practice where Rep. Steve Scalise was shot.
DeSantis said while Rep. Scalise “is fighting for his life, I think he’s going to pull through.”
After describing his interactions with the alleged shooter, DeSantis said, “We received a message expressing approval of what had happened and just hoping that Donald Trump would be next. And another one of my colleagues received an email saying one down, 217 more to go. and other colleagues have received other things.”
DeSantis said he believes the hate being engendered toward President Trump is being directed at Congress because they are more accessible. “This guy went there clearly filled with rage, clearly filled with political ideology that was hostile to the president and Republicans, and he wanted to kill a lot of Republicans.”
