The man who opened fire on a group of GOP congressmen this morning has been identified.
According to numerous reports, James T. Hodgkinson is the man who fired between 50 and 100 rounds into the baseball field where congressmen and their staffers were practicing for a charity baseball game. While many have questioned the shooter’s motives, a look at his Facebook page speaks volumes after learning he specifically targeted GOP members of Congress.
Here are some screen shots:
As you can see, he isn’t exactly a supporter of President Trump. In fact, it appears as if he’s an avid Bernie supporter, which lends much credibility to the theory he was radicalized by the virulent anti-Trump media – the same media that has been espousing violent and hateful rhetoric for over six months while glorifying those calling for violence against the President and his supporters.
I wonder where the shooter got the idea to violently attack GOP…

After this tragic incident, it’s time for the left to tone down their anti-Trump, anti-conservative rhetoric before others get hurt. After all, today it was members of Congress, what’s tomorrow going to bring, the same against peaceful Trump supporters?
UPDATE: President Trump just announced that Hodgkinson has died from his injuries.
