The nation is in shock after it was reported that a liberal extremist named James T. Hodgkinson from Belleville, Illinois opened fire on Republican congressmen as they were at a community baseball diamond in Alexandria, Virginia, near Washington, D.C.
Following the attack, it was revealed that the unhinged Hodgkinson formerly worked as a volunteer for Senator Bernie Sanders’ 2016 presidential campaign. The shooting has destroyed the left’s false claim that liberal protesters are not dangerous. The Washington Post recently reported on other disturbing information James posted on his Facebook page.
Back in March, Hodgkinson wrote, “Trump is a Traitor. Trump Has Destroyed Our Democracy. It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co.” Two years ago he made a post directed at House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, who he ended up shooting.
In the post, James used a political cartoon that depicted Congressman Scalise talking in front of a crowd of people wearing Ku Klux Klan hoods. Wrote Hodgkinson, “Here’s a Republican that should Lose His Job, but they Gave Him a Raise.”
According to reports, James had been homeless and was living out of his YMCA gym bag. Stated Alexandria Mayor Bill Euille, “He was a very friendly person. But what I did notice about this gentleman is he’d open up his gym bag and in it, he had everything he owned. He was living out of the gym bag. That, and he sat in the Y’s lobby for hours and hours.” Do you think we need to pay closer attention to unhinged liberal protesters like this?
