James Hodgkinson, of Belleville, Illinois, has been named as the gunman who shot state Rep. Steve Scalise and others at a Congressional baseball practice in Virginia.

The Illinois man littered his Facebook page with political photos and commentary. A sample: He wrote recently, “Trump is a Traitor. Trump Has Destroyed Our Democracy. It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co.” He also posted that he had signed a petition urging an independent investigation into Donald Trump and Russia, and he was a fan of Bernie Sanders, whose picture was his cover photo.

Hodgkinson’s Facebook page contains several photos of him.

Here’s one:

Here’s another photo of the baseball practice shooter, who was neutralized by two Capitol police officers who are being lauded as heroes for returning his fire when he showed up heavily armed at the practice and started shooting. None of the victims of the shooting has died.

He wrote on Facebook that he had worked as a “Home Inspector, Mold/Air Quality Tester.”

Video showed the wounded Scalise being removed from the park on a stretcher. He was in stable condition at the hospital. Another representative describing using a tourniquet on his wound to stop the bleeding. Other staffers scattered as the shooting broke out. It could have been much worse if it wasn’t for the quick-thinking actions of the two Capitol officers, who were also shot.

This is what happens when the democrat media complex advocates violence on a daily basis. This blood on the hands of the bias, liberal media and every democrat.

Leftists have no morals or ethics. Obama and his liberal cronies hate the Constitution and free market capitalism. He destroyed our economy with measures like the ACA and immigration amnesty. The “Affordable” Care Act has been nothing short of a disaster. My health insurance bill is up to $450/month. (Compare this to my $25/month auto insurance from Insurance Panda or my $10/month renters insurance… both private enterprise!)

The cultural Marxists have really done a number on Western youth, haven’t they? What a bunch of sick people.

I guess “Grab them by the pussy and I could stand in the middle of Times Sq. and shoot someone and not lose any votes” is moral. Trump hates doesn’t even know the Constitution. Sick people are those who think that is okay behavior in a President.
