Lone nutter or a logical extention of Berniedom?

James “Tom” Hodgkinson, the gunman who shot congressman Steve Scalise during an attack on a Republican congressional baseball practice session on Wednesday, was a leftwing political activist with a record of domestic violence.
Hodgkinson also posted messages criticising the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, whom he described as “Republican Lite”. He showed strong support for Clinton’s rival in the Democratic primary, Bernie Sanders. “I want Bernie to win the White House,” Hodgkinson posted in August 2016.

Sanders said in a statement on Wednesday that he had been told Hodgkinson had “apparently volunteered” on his presidential campaign. Media reports suggested Hodgkinson volunteered in Iowa.

Nothing to do with Bernie of course.

Just as random nutters aren’t the responsibility of Trump, Breitbart and so on. Right?

Right? Bueller?

  1. He is squarely in the tradition of socialist violence.

    If the stabber of a while ago–another Sanders fan–was declared a “white supreme” by lleftist scum then this chump is one of the vast line up of Marxian thugs that blight the human record.

    Indeed , tho the scum of the left have spent decades hooping and hollering to build up racism as the worst thing in the Universe ( to silence free speech via hate speech law), the fact is that racism isn’t even anywhere near as evil as socialism.

  2. Weren’t the evil brexiteers directly responsible for the murder of Jo Cox ? That’s the problem with trying to get political spin out of these situations, they can turn and bite you.

  3. As somebody on Twitter pointed out, the media’s big problem is that everyone now knows what they’d be saying if the roles had been reversed.

  4. I think the idea of left wing violence, from people such as Marxists or environmentalists is absurd.

  5. The left always resort to violence to enforce their will, but the majority of media give them a free pass.

  6. Benaud–Is English a second language for you?

    Because if you mean what you say your grasp on reality is dangerously weak.

    Socialism–as I NEVER tire of saying–has murdered 150 million so far and is busy shooting’ em down in Venezuela even as we type.

  7. ‘Just as random nutters aren’t the responsibility of Trump, Breitbart and so on.’

    Not so fast on the ‘so on.’ Hillary Clinton has publicly said, “Resist!”

  8. Leavers didn’t fill Twitter and Facebook with violent, hate-filled messages. Leftists regularly do, and they constantly get approval for it.

  9. Let’s compromise on gun regulation. The left most half of the population don’t get to have guns; the right most one does. Everybody happy?

    It’s a classic case of the Leftist strategy/mantra of Heads I win, tails you lose.

    Who knows what mixture of madness and circumstance causes someone to pick up a gun and go on a rampage?

    Translation: who knows, indeed? Nobody. Surely, not the leftist incitements against the President and the Republicans.

    Mr. Trump struck exactly the right tone. “We may have our differences, but we do well, in times like these, to remember that everyone who serves in our nation’s capital is here because, above all, they love our country,” he said from the White House.

    Translation: since there was a tragedy, Republicans must talk about unity and give up their partisan rancor.

    We think Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) was correct in not shying away from the issue of gun control…

    Translation: Democrats, this is no time for “unity” – keep pushing our agenda.

    The Ur-example of this was JFK’s assassination being transformed from being the work of a Castro-worshipping Communist into being the result of a “climate of hate” in Dallas (or else that of a “Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy”).

    Actually the narrative I am seeing develop is that the shooter was a domestic abuser. Ergo, it is the culture of misogyny and guns that creates violence on all sides of the political spectrum, etc. etc.

    I’m happy with that
