(Angry Patriot) – After House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) and others were shot by a left-wing gunman this week, prayers and support have poured in from across the country. Rep. Scalise, in particular, is going to continue needing those prayers.
Dr. Jack Sava of MedStar Hospital reports that while Scalise’s condition is improving, due to blood loss and organ damage, he remains critical and will have to undergo further surgeries, via Washington Examiner.
All patriotic Americans are hoping that Mr. Scalise pulls through.
In the wake of this shooting, many politicians and D.C. residents took the high road by calling for unity. Even the raving left-wing fanatic Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) called for peace, and wished for the safety of the Trump family.
However, this message didn’t get back to the Democratic faithful.
The idea that America is unified after this shooting is hogwash. All one has to do is simply scroll through Facebook and Twitter to see that millions of Leftists are celebrating the shooting.
Jesse Benn, a Black Lives Matter supporter who once advocated for violence against whites in the name of “racial equality,” chastised the shooter for not being more organized, via Twitchy.
Because Scalise once spoke at a gathering with former Ku Klux Klan official David Duke, racial grievance activists, and other Communists, considered his shooting justified.
More mainstream voices (like CNN and MSNBC) are doing everything in their power to try and underplay the gunman’s political motivations.
Unfortunately for their narrative, the internet has a long memory.
Shooter James T. Hodgkinson was a Bernie Sanders supporter who volunteered for Sanders’ presidential campaign in 2016. The shooter attended protests, and was even interviewed on camera raving about the “one-percent.”
Hodgkinson’s social media accounts were also full of anti-Republican propaganda, and violent threats against both President Trump and his supporters. Hodgkinson also sincerely believed in the Trump-Russian conspiracy theory, and called President Trump a “traitor.”
It gets even more bizarre and tragic — an assassination list was found on the shooter’s body. Two of the targeted Republican lawmakers were on that hit list, via AOL.
This was not the work of a deranged lunatic. While Hodgkinson may have had some mental health issues, and Hodgkinson’s arrest record reports that he was prone to violence, his motivation was clear: kill Republicans.
This is left-wing terrorism, pure and simple.
