#CongressionalBaseballGame Shooter Had Hit List [VIDEOS]

by Jennifer Davis on June 17, 2017

In the past 72 hours the country has gone from cries for unity in the wake of the shooting of GOP players practicing for the Congressional Baseball game on Wednesday morning to the predictable malaise of both sides pointing the finger at the other for causing the current, toxic political climate.  While all of that was going on, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has discovered that the shooter (whose name I shall not repeat here) had a hit list on him when he shot at the Republicans in that baseball field in Alexandria. This was a premeditated attempt at a political assassination in other words. According to an article in the Daily Caller:

“The list was written out on notepad paper and found in the shooter’s pocket, according to multiple sources with intimate knowledge of the situation, who spoke on condition of anonymity, citing the sensitivity of the investigation. The list of names included Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks, South Carolina Rep. Jeff Duncan and Arizona Rep. Trent Franks, TheDC has confirmed.

The FBI has contacted at least one of the three congressmen to inform them of their inclusion on the list.”

Interestingly all three of the representatives that were also named on the list are members of the House Freedom Caucus which is the home of the most conservative members of the lower house. One of the men named on the list, Rep. Jeff Duncan of South Carolina, had interacted (unknowingly) with the shooter who asked the party affiliation of the players in the field that morning. Thankfully Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) had a security detail that was with him Wednesday morning since he is in a leadership position as the House Majority Whip. Jodi covered their heroic actions for us here. Those heroes are the reason that all of the remaining representatives who were present, and some family members who were also in attendance, are alive today.

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) described the shooting in the video below. Paul was in the in the batting cage at the time and described what would have been a massacre if it wasn’t for the quick action of Scalise’s detail.

Along with a 9 mm handgun and a 7.62 caliber rifle, the FBI recovered the hit list which was found in a white panel van along with a computer, a cell phone and a camera which the FBI is still processing. I wish I could say that this is a rare occurrence. Unfortunately, this is just another violent episode in the violent left’s  new obsession since the election last fall targeting political opponents for death. The shooter belonged to a Facebook group called “Terminate The Republican Party” and posted on his personal page about how it was “Time to destroy Trump & Co”. Liberal Twitter has been exploding since Wednesday cheering on the shooter and calling for additional GOP representatives to be targeted. One Democrat strategist started two particularly foul hashtags on Twitter in response to the shooting on Wednesday, #HuntRepublicanCongressmen and #HuntRepublicans for which he still refuses to apologize. An author postulated that the shooter may have had a health condition that caused him to target the GOP due to the American Healthcare Act.

 

I am beyond disgusted with humanity at this point. If we have reached the point where people are fine with wishing death to another human being simply because they disagree with their political views, I fear that Abraham Lincoln was correct when he famously said that the end of this great nation would come from within.

We are there folks, if we do not stop this, we are there.
