Republican Representative Steve Scalise, the House Majority Whip, and several aides were shot during baseball practice for a charity game on Wednesday morning.
Scalise was shot in the hip and tried to drag himself off the field after he was shot.
The shooter asked if the Congressmen were Democrats or Republicans when he arrived at the scene.
When he found out they were all Republicans, he began shooting, exchanging 50-80 rounds with police before being wounded and taken from the scene.
Well we just found out the shooter’s identity, and it speaks volumes.
The Washington Post reported:
The shooter at the GOP congressional baseball practice this morning is James T. Hodgkinson of Belleville, Ill., according to law enforcement officials. Hodgkinson, 66, owns a home inspection business.
Hodgkinson is from Belleville, Illinois across the river from St. Louis.
And he is a Bernie Sanders supporter and rabid Donald Trump-hater.
From Smoking Gun:
Hodgkinson, 66, posted a link to a Change.org petition in late March that included the notation that, “Trump is a Traitor. Trump Has Destroyed Our Democracy. It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co.”
Hodgkinson’s Facebook page includes numerous photos of Senator Bernie Sanders, whom Hodgkinson appears to have supported during the 2016 Democratic presidential primary. In posts last August, Hodgkinson wrote, “I want Bernie to Win the White House” and “Bernie is a Progressive, while Hillary is Republican Lite.”

Hodgkinson is a Trump-despiser:
And his Trump-hatred is nothing new. This is from a year ago:
This Thought is Frightening… Trump & or Cheney…
And this violent incident happened just days after the launch of a NYC play depicting the assasinatioin of a President Trump clone, and just 2 weeks after comedienne Kathy Griffin filmed the severing of a replica head of Trump — holding the bloody head up afterwards. Griffin later lost her gigs.
Just imagine if a Democrat were in office and these provocations by the “far right” had taken place. It would lead the news. There would be special town hall events on CNN and Nightline to “do something.” When it’s against Trump and the GOP? Crickets.
But the media is CENSORING his political affiliation. NONE of the mainstream networks are reporting it.
CNN is reporting the AP description ONLY:
Federal law enforcement sources identified the shooter as James Hodgkinson of Belleville, Illinois. Hodgkinson is 66.The shooter’s injuries are described as serious, according to the law enforcement source. Hodgkinson, 66, owns a home inspection business.
That’s it! Nothing about Bernie, or Trump-hatred. Expect them to focus only on “GUNS!!!”
The media is CENSORING this info about the shooter…SHARE THIS EVERYWHERE to spread the truth!
