Republican Baseball Practice Shooting Only the Beginning
June 16, 2017 By Douglas V. Gibbs
Remember when the Obama presidency, the experts in the executive branch, his minions in Congress, his minions in the media and his minions on the streets tried to convince America that the Tea Party movement, military veterans and supporters of the Republican Party were capable of violence, and that we were somehow all a bunch of domestic terrorists? Yet, the violence from the right-wing never manifested as the liberal left predicted. Tea Party rallies were peaceful, and no mass shootings by Republicans ever happened. When mass shootings did occur, the shooters always turned out to be Democrats. But, the media conveniently didn’t discuss that part of the news.
The Domestic Terrorists are not from the GOP. They are Democrats
Now, the tables have turned. A Republican President is in the White House, and the GOP has a majority in both Houses of Congress. It turns out that a great number of extremist Democrats are actually everything the leftists accused the conservatives in America of being. The Domestic Terrorists are not from the GOP. They are Democrats. And the violence we are seeing was in the plans all along.
Violence against Republicans, conservatives, and Trump supporters, even shootings of Trump supporters, has become old news. We are being desensitized. It began with Black Lives Matter, and with the snowflakes during the presidential campaign, and has been gaining momentum ever since.
The latest in the chapter of violence against the GOP by Democrats, however, has launched into a whole new realm. The latest news currently being covered is a story about a shooter who walked up to a baseball practice comprised of Republican congressmen and their staffers, and then the leftist Democrat opened fire. The shooter, online, was a sufferer of Trump Derangement Syndrome, brought on by the liberal left Democrat Party’s hateful rhetoric and the complicit liberal mainstream media. He was simply doing as he has been instructed.
Earlier this year, in January, Tim Kaine, Hillary Clinton’s running-mate in the presidential election, said on television that the Democrat [voters] need to take the fight to the streets. His was but one of many calls for such violence. Kathy Griffin with her image holding the severed head of President Donald J. Trump doubled down on the call for violence, and the removal of Trump and his allies from their positions in the U.S. Government. And now, Democrat voters are responding to their instructions. But, they simply believe lies, have fallen for a false hysteria; the blood is actually on the hands of the liberal left Democrat Party politicians and the biased liberal media, for inciting such violence.
In a terrorist style much like that of a Muslim jihadist, in a violent manner demanded by the antifa anti-Trump mob
In a terrorist style much like that of a Muslim jihadist, in a violent manner demanded by the antifa anti-Trump mob, and a violent action envisioned and encouraged by multiple celebrities, hardcore liberal left James T. Hodgkinson, 66, still distraught over the 2016 Presidential Election, opened fire on GOP personnel at the baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, and only the fact that there were good guys with guns on the scene was Hodgkinson stopped from killing everyone on that baseball field.
The foot soldiers of the far left Democrat Party regime have been convinced from leftist Democrat Party propaganda that America is experiencing what Germany experienced when Adolf Hitler rose to power. Hitler was elected after fooling a segment of the people, and the rational argument since World War II has always been that if the people who realized what Hitler truly was had only stood up to him, defeated him, and killed him and his supporters, Germany would not have fallen into the clutches of the Third Reich, and the horrifying events that followed could have been avoided.
The American followers of the Democrat Party’s drive for their own Reich do not realize they are deceived tools for the exact kind of fascism they believe they are standing against.
The Marxists, communists and fascists of the Democrat Party have launched a strategy of deception, projection, and a new generation of brown shirts who fanatically believe that their violence is honorable, and necessary, to save America from some kind of a Fourth Reich perpetrated by the GOP.
The Democrat Party lemmings have been activated after a lifetime of indoctrinational public schooling, entertainment industry propaganda, and mainstream media instructions
The Democrat Party lemmings have been activated after a lifetime of indoctrinational public schooling, entertainment industry propaganda, and mainstream media instructions. They have been trained to resist Republican rule, to institute mob-rule, and to end all opposition to the Democrat Party narrative and agenda.
But, the violence is acceptable, to these people. The ends, after all, justify the means. They are moral supremacists. Their liberal left Democrat Party cause, they believe, is a cause worth killing for.
The shooter at the Republican baseball practice, Hodgkinson, was a big-time Bernie Sanders fan, and a Rachel Maddow superfan. His Facebook page was slathered with photos of Senator Bernie Sanders. In posts last August, Hodgkinson wrote, “I want Bernie to Win the White House” and “Bernie is a Progressive, while Hillary is Republican Lite.” At one point, Hodgkinson volunteered in Sanders’ presidential campaign. His social media pages screamed “It’s time to destroy Trump and company.”
According to Hodgkinson’s Facebook page, he is a member of numerous left-leaning online groups, including The Road To Hell Is Paved With Republicans; Rachel Maddow For President 2020; Sanders For President 2020; Terminate The Republican Party; and Donald Trump is not my President.
Hodgkinson was killed when good guys with guns, including local police and congressional security, returned fire.
Majority Whip Representative Steve Scalise (R-La.), two Capitol Hill police officers, and a congressional aide, were reportedly injured in the attack. The game is still going to go on, however. The players of both teams (Republican and Democrat) are going to wear LSU (Louisiana State University) jerseys to show their support for Scalise’s recovery.
As a result of the shooting, Congressman Scalise was reported to be in critical condition. He underwent surgical procedures to treat his gunshot wounds. He experienced wounds to internal organs, and more surgeries are still expected.
The shooting is but another manifestation of a violent pattern being perpetrated by the left-wing
The shooting is but another manifestation of a violent pattern being perpetrated by the left-wing. Hodgkinson opening fire on Republican congressmen and their staff is only the beginning because other shooters, like Hodgkinson, will believe it is their progressive duty to do so.
The leftist reaction to the shooting has been celebration, and an encouragement of more violence.
New York Representative Claudia Tenney received an email shortly after the shooting that read, “One down, 216 to go. Did you NOT expect this? When you take away ordinary peoples very lives in order to pay off the wealthiest among us, your own lives are forfeit. Certainly, your souls and morality were lost long before. Good riddance.”
Remember, the left-wingers are convinced by propaganda that goes back more than a hundred years. The Democrats are for the poor and the Republicans are for the rich, despite the evidence that all Democrat Party policies are destructive to the poor, and holds up the wealthy and powerful.
Liberal left progressive socialist Marxist Democrats who are creating an environment of violence and intimidation
The hard left crazies do not understand that. Their lifetime of leftist training doesn’t allow them to conceive of the possibility that their religion of Marxism could possibly be dangerous, a failure, or the actual embodiment of the fascism, hate and totalitarianism they claim to be standing against. It is the liberal left progressive socialist Marxist Democrats who are creating an environment of violence and intimidation. It is they who are becoming increasingly hostile, racist and intolerant. It is the liberal left Democrat antifa crazies who are dividing this country because they believe a well-orchestrated hate-campaign against Donald Trump and the Republican Party that in reality has no truth to it. It is a false religion.
One of Virginia Representative Tom Garrett’s town halls last month featured a heavy police presence after Garrett and his family were targeted by repeated death threats. “This is how we’re going to kill your wife,” read one such message.
The person behind the message to Garrett was a Tucson Unified School District employee who also left threatening messages for Arizona Representative Martha McSally stating that the congresswoman’s days were “numbered.”
Last month, police in Tennessee charged 35-year-old Wendi Wright with felony reckless endangerment for allegedly trying to run Republican Congressman David Kustoff off the road after a town hall he held regarding the GOP health care bill.
The same day Wright was charged, police in North Dakota escorted a man from a town hall with Representative Kevin Cramer after the man became physical with the Republican congressman and shoved a fistful of money into Cramer’s collar.
Town halls, in general, have become increasingly volatile environments, as left-wing activists have organized hostile town halls.
California Representative Tom McClintock’s town halls in February shows police escorting him to his car afterwards, as emotional protesters chanted “Shame!” At least four tires were slashed outside the town hall. Also in February, a 71-year-old female staffer for California Representative Dana Rohrbacher was knocked unconscious during an angry protest activists staged outside Rohrbacher’s office. Alabama Republican Mo Brooks announced shortly afterward he would hold off on holding public town halls out of safety concerns. “I want things to settle down a little bit before I’m willing to subject citizens to bodily harm or damage to their personal property,” he explained. Texas Representative Louie Gohmert similarly put a hold on town halls, “until the threat of violence at town hall meetings recedes.”
A popular parade in Portland, Oregon was canceled in April after threats of violence were made against a local Republican organization taking part.
Pro-Trump commentator Milo Yiannopoulos had his speech at the University of California-Berkeley cancelled after rioters set the campus ablaze in order to keep him from speaking.
Those same activists were able to shut down pro-Trump commentator Ann Coulter’s UC Berkeley speech just by promising a repeat performance of the Milo riots.
A month before the election, someone firebombed a North Carolina GOP office. A building adjacent to the office was spray painted with a warning: “Nazi Republicans get out of town or else.”
Educational institutions are no exception, as Republican students have been targeted there as well.
The day after the election, sophomore high school student Jade Armenio was attacked after she expressed her support for Trump on social media. Armenio, who was white, was attacked by another female student, who was black. The attacker ripped Armenio’s glasses off and punched her in the face. The attack was caught on video.
The president of Cornell University’s College Republicans, Olivia Corn, said she was physically assaulted the night after Trump won the election.
A Maryland high school student wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat after the election was punched and kicked by students protesting Trump after he started arguing with them.
Similarly, police in Florida arrested a 17-year-old high school student after he punched a classmate for carrying a Trump sign at school.
In another instance of post-election violence directed at Trump supporters, 24-year-old Corey Cataldo was reportedly attacked on a New York subway for the crime of wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat.
Conservative Commentator Michael Savage says that the United States is at a boiling point, and that there is going to be a civil war as a result of the violence by the Marxist revolutionaries of the Democrat Party resistance movement. Ann Coulter also warns that the live-fire by the “Resistance” has only just begun.
But, the fact that the shooting against the GOP on the baseball field in Alexandria occurred, despite the fact that the shooter was stopped by good guys with guns, has Democrats, like Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, calling for stronger gun control.
Have the gun laws worked in Chicago as gun violence and black on black killings continue to skyrocket?
Have the gun laws worked in Chicago as gun violence and black on black killings continue to skyrocket? Have the gun laws in Europe worked as terrorists use guns to mow down their victims (when they aren’t using cutting instruments and vehicles)?
Violence by the Democrats, and their call for gun control as a result, is not about safety. It’s about control. And to gain that control, the violence of the left-wing crazies is being ignored, and the safety of the members of our society is but an obstacle for the emergence of the great utopia, led by a Democrat Party elite, unopposed because all those willing to oppose them are in the process of being removed, or silenced, by the terror tactics of the Democrat Party’s own version of the Brown Shirts.

Trump: ‘We Will Not Be Intimidated by Threats, Acts of Violence or Assaults on Our Democracy’
(CNSNews.com) – President Donald Trump shared a message Thursday night prior to the Congressional Baseball game at Nationals Park, saying the fact that the game was still being played was sending a message to the world “that we will not be intimidated by threats, acts of violence, or assaults on our democracy.”
The game was played just one day after Rep. Steve Scalise and four others were shot during baseball practice for the game in Alexandria, Va. Scalise is still in the hospital, reportedly in critical condition with broken bones and damage to his internal organs.
“I want to take a moment to send our thoughts, love, and prayers to Congressman Steve Scalise and his entire family. Steve is our friend, he’s a patriot, and he is a true fighter. I know you all will be playing extra hard tonight for Steve,” Trump said.
“This game is always an important moment for both parties to come together to support charity, build friendships, and celebrate our national pastime, but, as you all know, tonight’s game has taken on a much deeper level of meaning, beyond anything that we would have thought,” he said. “By playing tonight, you are showing the world that we will not be intimidated by threats, acts of violence, or assaults on our democracy.”
The president thanked “members of Congress, their staffs, and baseball fans across the country” for supporting the game.
“We pray for all of the victims of this terrible crime who are still recovering – including Zachary Barth and Matt Mika, both of whom are respected and cherished by so many. We also praise Special Agents Crystal Griner and David Bailey of the Capitol Police for their heroic deeds that saved so many lives. What a great job they did! And we thank all the members of Alexandria Fire, Police and Rescue,” Trump said.
Bailey threw out the opening pitch at the game. He was injured by shrapnel during the shooting and used crutches to walk to the mound. Griner, who is still in the hospital, was shot in the ankle.
“In Washington, we have our disagreements, but we all agree that we are here to serve this nation we love, and the people who call it home. That is the source of unity, and more than ever, we must embrace it,” the president said.
“So on this special night, I leave you with three great American words that for generations have torn down barriers, built bridges of unity, and defied those who have sought to pull us apart. Ladies and gentlemen: let’s play ball!” Trump concluded.
SHOCK: Top Dem Leader Calling For Followers To “Hunt Republicans”
SHOCK: Top Dem Leader Calling For Followers To “Hunt Republicans”
In the wake of the horrific shooting that left GOP Majority Whip Steve Scalise in critical condition, many saw the need to put our differences aside and show a bit of unity.
Although political times are contentious, the use of violence over political disagreements is never justified.
For the most part, politicians on both sides of the aisle took the tragic lesson to heart. At the Congressional baseball game, the two parties came together for a moment of prayer, surely many with Rep. Scalise in their thoughts. For a moment, it seemed as though they’d be able to put aside the hateful rhetoric and get back to honest debate.
Of course, not everyone was able to put political differences aside and show a little respect. When President Trump appeared on the big screen to deliver a message of unity during the game, many Democratic staffers were caught jeering and insulting the president. Evidently, such a tragic event does nothing to cool the hatred of some.
While the reaction of those staffers may have been pathetic, it pales in comparison to the reaction of a prominent Democratic strategist. Instead of denouncing the violence that took place in Alexandria, he began to advocate for more of it.
From Fox News:
After a shooter in Alexandria left House Majority Whip Steve Scalise in critical condition and wounded four other people, a longtime New Jersey Democratic political strategist responded by introducing the hashtags #HuntRepublicans and #HuntRepublicanCongressmen.
“We are in a war with selfish, foolish & narcissistic rich people,” wrote James Devine on Twitter. “Why is it a shock when things turn violent? #HuntRepublicanCongressmen.”
Devine has run for office, consulted for numerous New Jersey campaigns, and worked in the offices of state lawmakers. He’s also a blogger.
Later, he doubled down on his hashtag campaign in an interview:
In an interview with MyCentralNewJersey.com, Devine said, “If you want to invite a class war, then you have to expect people to fight back at some point.” The Democratic strategist also wrote on Facebook that he had “little sympathy” for Scalise because of his lack of support for gun control.
It’s exactly this kind of attitude that will inevitably lead to even more bloodshed. There’s no excuse to advocate violence over political disagreements. Doing so makes you makes you nothing more than a terrorist.
Sadly, views like this are largely accepted as long as they come from the left. The New York Times can falsely claim that a Sarah Palin ad led to the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, yet characters like James Devine go unnoticed. The hypocrisy needs to end before it leads to even more tragedy.
