Senator Bernie Sanders Apologizes For His Campaign Worker Shooting Members of Congress….

Former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders apologizes for his campaign worker James T Hodgkison and the attempted mass murder of republicans in congress.

Bernie’s campaign worker James T Hodgkison (66) [pictured left] shot five people:

♦ House GOP Whip Steve Scalise
♦ Zak Barth (congressional aide)
♦ Matt Mika (lobbyist)
♦ David Bailey (capitol hill police)
♦ Krystal Griner (capitol hill police)

.

It will be interesting to see if the Democrats on Capitol Hill continue supporting political violence against President Trump and Republicans now that their supporters have started shooting people.

    The scariest people out there today are the GOP and RINOS. They have been complicit in the fake ruse of Russians fully well knowing Trump was not under investigation. They are the enemy clear and present. They could have crushed all this months ago but old McCain and Ryan found it convenient. Now here we are because they never defended anyone and helped these special investigations form…Here we are. We knew this was coming it was clear yet our reps are out there still not defending. I though it would be POTUS but they found a soft target. Yet the play goes on and Kathy Griffen not in jail…WTF does the SS need someone to get killed… We all know the liberals have gone insane now what to do with them…..Don’t ever turn your back. Like Jihadis they are brainwashed ……

    Rush Limbaugh said he warned about this yesterday.

    Bernie may be sorry his supporter did this. What he should be sorry for is pushing that “resistance” crap that came straight from the evil Obama/Hillary organization.
    Shame on him, for carrying along any part of their destructive and subversive agenda, even with words.

      What is lacking is leadership in the Democrat Party. Or perhaps CIVIL Leadership. The leaders of this so called party have stood MUTE while their followers have masked themselves and assaulted individuals and vandalized private property and there has been NOT ONE VOICE Calling for Non-Violence. After 8 years of a Community AGITATOR dividing America, siding with the Criminal over the Cop, the Black over the White the UNCIVIL SOCIETY which is the Legacy of Barack Obama has reached the boiling point.

        I quit listening to both right after the 2012 election. When Mark joined the NeverTrumper crowd, I understood, because I already knew he had been gaslighting us for years. These people are controlled by their own sponsors and funders. They are correct on some things even now, but this is to remain relevant. MANY people have ceased being Rush 24/7 subscribers (I was a charter member), Clear Channel is gone, it’s fairly evident Mark lost a ton of listeners, and a lot of us avoid CRTV. There IS a difference between populist conservatives and globalist conservatives and we all see it.

            We have figured out they WANT US DEAD or in chains. I lived in Boston MA and they make no bones about wanting to kill off a large portion of the population THIRTY YEARS AGO.

              All I’m saying is that the rhetoric is too high on Both sides – today people are heartbroken that Scalise has been injured, but I’m pretty sure yesterday he was just another uniparty swamp rat we wanted down the drain. This baseball game was probably quieter than an average night in Chicago – yet it’s suddenly become a national issue and everyone Must care and choose a side. Why? The media – social and broadcast – are yanking everyone’s chain once again. There’s no less propaganda going out today than yesterday, it’s just taking a different approach.

              It’s kinda crazy – but I Do know for a fact that typing isn’t going rid my frustrations or make my life any safer. I’ve been a prepper (for lack of a better term) for many, many years – and when the time comes to fight, I won’t be doing it with a keyboard.

                I have no fond thoughts for those who are actively seeking to kill me. The wish for “dead muzzies” IS a bit crude but not unexpected after what we’ve seen.

You knew what you were doing, Bernie. Just like Kathy Griffin did. You built on her violent image to take Trump down because YOU KNEW the image was out there already and yet you went ahead to incite imagery of violence “Take Him Down”. President Trump never ever said words like this about Hillary nor you. This is shameful behavior for a presidential aspirant, more suitable for communist dictators like Mao Tse Tong.

    Bernie and the Democrat entertainment shills who have massive power over the gullibles telling them their lives are inadequate unless they live in extravagance like they can, are at fault. Bernie’s and their apologies are NOT ADEQUATE to absolve them – they must put action into their apologies to remedy and stop the incitation of Americans to believe their lives are worthless unless they live in emulation of Hollywood and on the backs of middle-class working families.

    I just read about Bill Gate’s massive mansion and it’s literally a villa fit to house the whole of Syria. Same with islands owned by Beyonce, none of which these gullibles have access to. In fact, Gates auctioned off a tour of his mansion to one of his employees at $35,000. It wouldn’t be so bad except these are the same elitists claiming the very same middle-class employees and families need to pay up to “feed the ‘poor’ “. 30% of their income still leaves vast stores of savings for them, not so for middle-class families. If Gates and Beyonce gave up 30% of their private property for housing the poor, they would still have umpteen other residences and exclusive luxury habitats in which to reside safely. Not so for middle class who can barely find room for each member of their family, sharing space.

    This false incitation to unhappiness and violence by political leaders and the entertainment industry for virtue signalling has to stop!!

  10. I’m going to agree with some here. Bernie feels guilty because deep down inside, he knows what brought this nut-job to do this. He knows that the left is totally out of control. And he knows that he plays a part in all of this.

    You cannot talk about, “Resist, Obstruct and Fight”, and then think some nut job won’t push that to far. You can’t as a Political Party support in anyway what we have seen on College Campuses, and in the streets of America. You cannot remain silent when people that support you are having rally’s where the speakers are talking about burning down the White House. And what Democrat spoke out about the play in NY.

    And you really can’t have the head of the DNC addressing his own politicians with “F Trump” or F the Republicans”. That one has morphed into elected officials saying it too.
    What exactly did you believe was going to happen? Did you just assume that it would stop right there?

    This is laid right at the feet of all Democrats. The entire left that can’t seem to figure out that a President was elected and now we move on till the next election.
    Just look at the hearings. People who have know others for a lifetime are point fingers and accusing others with nothing at all to back it up. All of them lying to promote their own agenda.

    This is all on the left. The constant rhetoric, never calling people out for going to far, the acceptance of watching a campus turn into a riot and burn. All because they didn’t like the words.
    The absolute disgusting behavior and treatment of the President.
    And all of it promoted by a MSM that has been at the front and center of all of it. Backing and supporting every bit of it. A very willing accomplice every step of the way.

      It is called Accessory Before the Fact.

      I sure hope we see a ‘Special Council’ investigate whether the MSM, Loretta ‘blood in the streets’ Lynch AND SOROS are accessories. President Trump can appoint such a person. Time to put Rudy to work.

      Accessory Before The Fact
      Definition

      A person who aids, abets, or encourages another to commit a crime but who is not present at the scene. An accessory before the fact, like an accomplice, may be held criminally liable to the same extent as the principal. Many jurisdictions refer to an accessory before the fact as an accomplice.
      https://www.law.cornell.edu/wex/accessory_before_the_fact

      In 1969, in the case Brandenburg v. Ohio, the U.S. Supreme Court made history by ruling that, to merit conviction, the violence advocated must be intended, likely and imminent. This case and the Brandenburg Test is what the left is counting on to keep them out of jail.

      The law in Montana gives an example:

      45-8-105. Criminal incitement. (1) “Criminal incitement” means the advocacy of crime, malicious damage or injury to property, or violence.
      (2) A person commits the offense of criminal incitement if the person purposely or knowingly advocates the commission of a criminal offense and the advocacy is:
      (a) directed to inciting or producing that imminent unlawful, criminal action; and
      (b) likely to incite or produce that unlawful, criminal action.
      (3) For purposes of this section, “imminent” means immediate in time, impending, or on the verge of happening. […]
      http://leg.mt.gov/bills/mca/45/8/45-8-105.htm

      So it depends on the Supreme Court’s definition:

      The ‘Brandenburg test’ for incitement to violence

      […] the Court held: “Freedoms of speech and press do not permit a State to forbid advocacy of the use of force or of law violation except where such advocacy is directed to inciting or producing imminent lawless action and is likely to incite or produce such action.” Because the rally was not obviously intended to incite specific acts of violence, and because it was not likely to do so, government restriction of Brandenburg’s speech was unconstitutional.[…]

    It is a damn lucky thing this nutcase spent more time using the YMCA’s free wifi on his laptop and surfing Facebook and blogs than spending hard time at the gun range and practicing an assault. Doubt he had a military background or trained much at all. He missed most of his shots. Yes people were hit but it doesn’t seem to have been kill shots. Please pray for the victims, who are being treated in the hospitals. The Capitol Police and Secret Service Majority Whip protection detail managed to return fire with handguns (greatly reduced range against a rifleman) and seriously wound the perpetrator who later died at the hospital according to the early reports.

    That Dallas shooting where five officers were killed by a highly motivated individual less than honorably discharged from the Army with basic rifleman training (he was not Special Forces). He trained in sniper tactics and special forces tactics in civilian life. Kept detailed journals and had researched his plan in great detail. He used the shoot and move method and it made the police believe there was more than one shooter. The police eventually had to use a bomb disposal robot to creep up close and detonate an explosive to eliminate the sniper.

    Is it just me, or does this guy remind you of?

        The rifle was high powered and the round moving at that velocity striking the hip like it did with Scalise is a serious wound, shattering bone, fragmenting and tumbling, ripping through blood vessels and flesh. Mika has a chest wound and the last report is that his chest sidewall and lung was being reconstructed via surgery. But a trained marksman would have made accurate kill shots in rapid succession. This nutball, lit off maybe a hundred rounds and really didn’t hit his targets. I attribute much of this to the two Special Agents providing security for the House Majority Whip. They engaged and kept the shooter busy. Otherwise he could have walked up to that dugout and executed every last one of them including the 11 year old child stuffed under the bench. Rand was right, it would have been a slaughter. Each person is responsible for their own personal safety and being responsible CCL gun owner is essential in scenarios with an active shooter. Look at the guy and his neighbor who captured those two Georgia fugitive escaped convicts who killed two prison guards while they tried to steal his car in Tennessee. A responsible gun owner and his neighbor stopped two extremely dangerous men. The police cannot be everywhere all the time.

        Any bets on how fast all those present for this terrible event go obtain CCL permits and take NRA training as well as practice a heck of a lot? Maybe some personal hand to hand combat self-defense courses as well.
