Breaking: Congressman Jason Scalise Shot by Raging Bernie Sanders Supporter

Within 20 minutes of waking up this morning, I saw the terrible news.

Congressman Jason Scalise, the majority whip in the House of Representatives.

This is shocking, this is terrible, and this is just plain evil.

Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA)

We know the identity of the domestic terrorist who attacked the softball game played by Congressional representatives at the Alexandria, Virginia mound.

Here's the first press release issued from the office of Rep. Scalise:

Update on the Condition of Majority Whip Steve Scalise

Jun 14, 2017
WASHINGTON, D.C.— The office of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise released the following statement on his condition following this morning's shooting.
"This morning, at a practice for the Congressional Baseball Game, Whip Scalise was shot in the hip. He was transported to MedStar Washington Hospital Center, where he is currently undergoing surgery. He is in stable condition.
"Prior to entering surgery, the Whip was in good spirits and spoke to his wife by phone. He is grateful for the brave actions of U.S. Capitol Police, first responders, and colleagues.
"We ask that you keep the Whip and others harmed in this incident in your thoughts and prayers.
"This office will release additional information regarding the Whip's condition as appropriate."

Who shot Rep. Scalise?

James T. Hodgkinson.

What was he?

A hard-core Bernie supporter.

Here's the profile:

And there's more.

The Belleville News-Democrat reports:

The shooter who was killed during gunfire at practice for a congressional baseball game Wednesday morning was from Belleville.

The shooter was James T. Hodgkinson of Belleville, who belonged to a number of anti-Republican groups, including one called “Terminate the Republican Party.”

Notice in the picture profile that he advocated for government force against "the rich."

Americans, we need to wake up and recognize that Democratic Socialism is still socialism. It is an ideology of greed and fear based on taking from those who have and giving it to those who do not.

It's force, and it's just a thinly-veiled, nice-nice form of Communism.

Communism is radicalized political violence against an established order.

It's not nice, it's not good. It tends toward violent uproars like the one above.

Americans of all backgrounds--we need to stand up to these twin terrors in our world today:

1. Communism

2. Islam

These are terrorist ideologies designed to subjugate individuals into nothing and create an overreaching government tyranny over everyone.

This is wrong. It's time for all men to prepare to use concentrated, lawful force as needed to protect ourselves, our country, and our Constitution.

I also think thatwe should hold Bernie Sanders and his socialist ideology accountable for this destructive violence.

Call Vermont Democratic Socialist (really, communist) US Senator Bernie Sanders and demand that he issue a statement against this terrible attack on a fellow  Congressional representative:

"I have just been informed that the alleged shooter at the Republican baseball practice is someone who apparently volunteered on my presidential campaign. I am sickened by this despicable act. Let me be as clear as I can be. Violence of any kind is unacceptable in our society and I condemn this action in the strongest possible terms. Real change can only come about through nonviolent action, and anything else runs against our most deeply held American values.
"My hopes and prayers are that Representative Scalise, congressional staff and the Capitol Police Officers who were wounded make a quick and full recovery. I also want to thank the Capitol Police for their heroic actions to prevent further harm."

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Rep. Scalise. He is in stable condition, and the gunman--Berniecrat James Hodgkinson--has been killed. It's time to confront this very serious issue in our culture: democratic socialism invites violence. The answer will not be gun control, but a growing assurance to protect individual liberties, including the Second Amendment.
