Unhinged Rhetoric About 'Nazis' and Trump Derangement Syndrome Lead to Bloodshed
Well, it finally happened. We've been saying for months now that the breathless false narrative created by the media about Trump supporters was going to lead unstable people to do bad things. We've seen it in Berkeley, where masked Antifa thugs attacked "Nazis" (or anyone in a Trump hat). Then there was Kathy Griffin's disgusting mock beheading of President Trump, where she put the Left's violent fantasies on display, followed up very shortly with Shakespeare in the Park featuring the stabbing assassination of Donald Trump to wild applause and standing ovations. These people are sick in the head.
Now a Republican congressman is in the hospital recovering from a gunshot wound he received during a congressional softball practice. The shooter allegedly asked a Representative Ron DeSantis if there were Republicans or Democrats playing. Upon hearing they were Republicans, he opened fire. Luckily, he was a very bad shot (as we all imagine anti-gun nuts to be). Squeezing off a reported 50 to 60 rounds and only hitting one congressman in the hip in a field full of them seems hard to do. We are all grateful for bad aim and for Capitol Police who returned fire, stopping the attack. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise is being treated for his injuries.
Meanwhile, as blood still sits on the baseball field in Alexandria, Virginia, the Shakespeare in the Park players are getting ready for tonight's bloody performance, where they will symbolically slay the Republican sitting president. I would like to remind you that after Democratic Rep. Gabby Giffords was shot, Sarah Palin was blamed by nearly every network for having a map with districts up for grabs shown with targets over them (one of which happened to be Giffords' district). We were told that her map incited the shooting. These same people, however, aren't all over CNN right now making the connection between the play featuring Donald Trump being murdered or Kathy Griffin's bloody beheading and the shooting of Republicans playing ball.
Instead of calls for restraint and civility, Twitter is alive with celebration over evil Republicans being shot and targeted. The demonization continues.
Race baiters are trying to turn Scalise into a "white supremacist," saying he had it coming.
The shooter, who was identified as James T. Hodgkinson, has a typical leftist Facebook presence. An admitted Bernie supporter, he posted this on March 22.
