    A Hartford, Conn. sociology professor labeled white people "inhuman a**holes" and endorsed the idea that first responders should have let House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) and others die on a Virginia baseball field because of their race, Campus Reform reported. Trinity College's Johnny Eric Williams posted the hashtag "LetThem[expletive]Die" below an emotional message on Facebook directed at white people. On his now-locked account he wrote, "It is past time for the racially oppressed to do what people who believe themselves to be 'white' will not do - put end to the vectors of their destructive mythology of whiteness and...

    ...The Nebraska Democratic Party on Thursday removed one of its officials after a recording surfaced of him saying he was glad House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R., La.) got shot and wished he died. Phil Montag, who served as volunteer co-chairman of the party's technology committee, was fired after his comments were released, local Fox affiliate KPTM reported. Montag made the remarks during a private meeting with the party's Black Caucus chairwoman, Chelsey Gentry-Tipton, and a friend of hers, Destin Madison. "His whole job is to get people, convince Republicans to [expletive] kick people off [expletive] health care. I'm glad...

    When James Hodgkinson walked onto the baseball field and fired on those practicing a beloved American game, he committed the most serious political assassination in decades. The Capitol Police were there at the scene, and they acted in saving lives. If they had not, it would have been a massacre. There was little for the FBI to do here. The motives of the shooter are pretty clear, and he had a list of names of his targets. He ranted and raved about Republicans on social media, and he asked before the shooting were the players Republicans or Democrats. Looks like...

    James Hodgkinson's assault on Republican members of Congress was the most serious political assassination in decades. And yet at the same time it was wrapped up by the Capitol Police. There was really little for the FBI to do here. Hodgkinson's motives were fairly clear. He had a list of names of targets. His social media was filled with rants against Republicans. A witness describes him studying the area of his future attack. According to Rep. DeSantis, he asked if the players were Republicans or Democrats. This is about as open and shut as anything gets. All the FBi had to do was go...

    Illinois Republican congressman Adam Kinzinger shared on Tuesday a few of the "hateful, vitriolic" messages he received following the June 14 congressional baseball practice shooting at a Virginia park, that left his GOP colleague Rep. Steve Scalise in critical condition. The House Majority Whip's condition has since been upgraded to serious. Kinzinger, who serves Illinois' 16th Congressional District, posted on Facebook some messages he said he received from the public, writing, "We must rise above the angry rhetoric coming from all sides. Below are just a few of the hateful, vitriolic messages I received AFTER the #AlexandriaShooting. I know this...

    The FBI is treating the attempted mass assassination of Republican lawmakers as “assault” and not terrorism, FBI Assistant Director in Charge Andrew Vale announced at a press conference Tuesday morning. “At this time the FBI has assessed that the deceased shooter, James T. Hodgkinson, acted alone. We also assess that there was no nexus to terrorism. The FBI is investigating the shooting as an assault of a member of Congress and assault on a law enforcement officer,” Vale said. The FBI has long-defined terrorism as “the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce...

    The National Review ^ | June 20, 2017 | Dennis Prager
    Front-page news for weeks. So why do Republicans make nice and ignore the double standard? What would have happened if a Trump supporter had shot Democratic congressmen? The answer is obvious. The New York Times, the rest of the left-wing media, and the Democratic party would have made the shootings the dominant issue in American life. It is not possible to understand the Left — and, therefore, the media and the current state of American life — without understanding how the Left uses and relies on hysteria. Hysteria is to the Left what oxygen is to biological life.....

    Thursday evening, CBS's Scott Pelley, who officially ended his tenure as the network's Evening News anchor the following evening, told viewers that "It's time to ask whether the attack on the United States Congress Wednesday was foreseeable, predictable and, to some degree, self-inflicted." It's clear from Pelley's subsequent commentary that his answers to all three elements are "Yes." It's equally clear from the examples he supplied as support that he sees (or wants viewers to see) the problem as predominantly about the conduct of those on the right. Transcript below: It's time to ask whether the attack on the United...

    Over the past two years we have watched the level of violence perpetrated by the Left grow and grow. During Trump's campaign there were scores (or more) of attacks on his rallies. Hundreds of his followers were injured by these terrorist attacks. That is what they were. Now after months of Democratmedia hysteria attempting to remove the legitimate winner of the last race, we have seen our first actual shooting and attempted murder. Anyone with any integrity would have to admit on examining this case, that the shooter must have been radicalized by these incessant smearing of the President. How...

    Bernie Sanders growled while delivering the keynote speech at last weekend's People Summit in Chicago: "Part of the problem is . . . nobody wants to hurt each other anymore." Packed into McCormick Place's Arie Crown Theater, thousands of his followers roared in response, some furiously waving bloody fake heads of Donald Trump borrowed from Kathy Griffin. "Knock the crap out of them!" Sanders screamed, his index finger pointing at some invisible target like a cocked gun while red beret-wearing Bernie bros in the aisles began passing out burning torches and pitchforks.

    Experts on extremism are increasingly shifting their focus from right-wing extremism to what they see as a rise of violence on the left, according to a new report. "The past few months have seen enough of a rise in politically motivated violence from the far left that monitors of right-wing extremism have begun shifting their focus, and sounding the alarm," a report on said. Liberal violence has seen an uptick since President Trump was elected. The subject of left-wing violence reared its head last week after a Bernie Sanders supporter opened fire on congressional Republicans playing baseball last Wednesday,...

    “Are they Democrats or Republicans?” That was the question that domestic terrorist James Hodgkinson, whose social media postings clearly marked him as a member of “The Resistance,” reportedly asked before he let loose a barrage of gunfire on a baseball field where members of the GOP caucus were practicing before their annual game against the Democrats. That was the measure of someone’s humanity in the twisted mind of the committed Leftist/Resistance activist as he tried to pull off a massacre. If you are a Republican, you’re not human and you don’t deserve to live. While there’s no question that Hodgkinson...

    IT started as a face-saving exercise by Hillary Clinton to try to explain away her election loss to a vulgarian real estate billionaire from Queens. But the absurd Russia conspiracy has somehow snowballed into a crisis that threatens to bring down Donald Trump, has all but paralysed his administration, and unleashed the most unhinged attacks on a US president in living memory. Inevitably, last week the violent language and “Assassinate Trump” memes erupted in a burst of deadly gunfire at an early morning baseball practice for Republican congressmen near Washington, DC. The gunman was 66-year-old James Hodgkinson, a left-wing Bernie...

    Jun 17, 2017 - 2:56 pm cdt WASHINGTON — Three days after he was shot in the hip by a high-velocity rifle, U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise has regained consciousness and is able to talk softly, having spoken with his wife Saturday morning, according to two sources close to the congressman's family. Medical staff also have removed a tube that had been inserted into Scalise's abdomen to prevent fluid from going into his lungs while he was sedated, said the sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to comment on the congressman's medical status. Scalise's...
