Just a few days ago, Sen. Bernie Sanders called for his followers to take over the Democratic Party. Sanders pushed to wrestle control away from the Democrats that he holds responsible for last November’s election loss. The gunman who shot Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA), House Majority Whip, has a history of hate and posting anti-Trump, pro-Sanders and pro-socialist posts on his Facebook page.
The man who opened fire on a Congressional baseball practice Wednesday, seriously wounding a top Republican lawmaker and four others was an avowed Bernie Sanders supporter who despised President Trump, according to what appears to have been his Facebook page.
James T. Hodgkinson, 66, of Belleville, Ill., who was gunned down by police to end the shooting at Simpson Field in Alexandria, Va., appears to have maintained two Facebook pages, each replete with profane anti-Trump posts and glowing praise for Sanders.
Sanders, whose failed presidential campaign Hodgkinson is believed to have been a volunteer, called the shooting a “despicable act.” …
Fortunately, the shooter is dead. Hopefully, Rep. Scalise will survive and recover from his wounds. Last reports listed him in serious condition. No, this is not a reason for more gun control, rather it’s a call to bring America back to the Christian foundation morals and values that once made us great. Without those foundations, morals and values, America has become a cesspool of hate anger and violence.
