Shooting Of GOP:
A Wake-Up Call


Wake up and pay attention, America. The shooting on Wednesday of a Republican congressman and his GOP comrades was no accident — it was a wake-up call!

By now, we’ve all heard that 66-year-old James Hodgkinson of Belleville, Illinois opened fire on a team of GOP lawmakers practicing for a charity baseball game on Wednesday morning in Alexandria, Virginia. By now, we’ve all heard that the gunman shot and seriously injured House Republican Majority Whip Steve Scalise, who remains in the hospital in critical condition. By now, we’ve all heard that the injured victims include a congressional staffer, a lobbyist, and 2 members of the Capitol police force — and that the gunman himself was killed in a shootout with police.

However, what we have not heard is what caused such a shooting to ever occur?

James Hodgkinson was about as anti-Trump as they come. Not only was he a staunch supporter and volunteer for the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign, but his Facebook page is filled with anti-Trump sentiments, including one that reads: “Trump is guilty and should go to prison for treason.”

Rep. Steve Scalise is a faithful conservative Republican. He is also a die-hard supporter of Donald Trump who has publicly backed Trump in his attempt to repeal Obamacare and to beat charges of collusion with Russia.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize the two ideologies don’t mix.

Let’s face facts. In today’s political climate, the “rah-rah” “Kumbaya” “We are all one America” mentality is a complete myth. A joke. In fact, America is divided now more than ever — and we have one person to thank for it: our illustrious leader, Donald Trump!

Donald Trump spent months stirring the pot and riling up supporters at his rallies into a violent frenzy. Donald Trump spent months brazenly encouraging his supporters to “beat the crap” out of any anti-Trump rally attendees who dared to have a different opinion. Donald Trump spent months telling his supporters that he wished we could all “go back to the good ol’ days,” when people “knew their place” or else they would be “carried out on a stretcher.”

Well, Donald Trump got his wish — except not quite in the way he wanted it.

On Wednesday, Rep. Scalise and various other REPUBLICANS were indeed “carried out on a stretcher” for daring to have a different opinion.

If you provoke people into a fight, eventually someone is going to throw a punch. James Hodgkinson threw his on Wednesday by targeting and shooting Republicans for daring to have a different opinion than he did.

James Hodgkinson was horribly wrong for using violence against those who think differently than him. However, Donald Trump was also wrong for ENCOURAGING violence against those who think differently than him.

So, wake up, America. Pandora’s box has been opened. Next time, things could be much, much worse!

…on a related note, the question was asked: "Is America Substituting Violence for Debate?" ..a Reader wrote: Before addressing that question, I have to first question the term "debate". In recent times, I don't believe we have had political debate; we have, for the most part, had name calling, the demonizing of political opponents and fear-mongering. That hardly qualifies as "debate" and has only hastened the rise of extremism among our citizens. So long as politicians (and their media supporters/political pundits) continue their antics and fail to forthrightly address the domestic and foreign issues our nation faces and so long as our citizens see a continuing erosion of their personal financial position and that of the nation, the fuse of violence will continue to burn, and we will see an increasing number of domestic-generated attacks, citizen-on-citizen, citizen-on-infrastructure, and citizen-on-politicians).

MSNBC:
President Trump’s rhetoric is “partially” to blame ratcheting up political tensions in the U.S., Rep. Mark Sanford, R-S.C., said Thursday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” connecting the commander in chief to Wednesday’s shooting at a GOP baseball practice in Northern Virginia.

“The president is at least partially — again, not any way totally, but partially — to blame for demons that have been unleashed,” Sanford said, noting that although Trump was not responsible for the shooting, his coarse rhetoric and encouragement of violence have fostered aggression and a lack of civility in the heated political climate.

“If you let these forces play out, I think we end up at a very, very bad spot,” Sanford said. “What happened yesterday was symptomatic of it.”

Looks like your onto something DJ

Trump can fix most of this crap if he stops his damn tweeting and making enemies of the press and anybody who doesn't agree with him. He is low key stirring people up to violence and the shits gotta stop.

Excellent write up DJ. Like the old saying goes you reap what you sow. Trump has been sowing hate and violence for some time. He spoke to all the crazys and got them behind him. Now they are walking around feeling bold to call people the N word and do things they would not before. So this shooting didn't surprise me. If we don't have a leader who knows how to keep us united then we will keep being divided and keep doing things like this. Yes we need to wake up.

It is indeed a wake-up call. I also agree with you on this: "Pandora’s box has been opened. Next time, things could be much, much worse!" I'd say, it's practically a guarantee that things will indeed get a lot worse if WE (America) don't own up to the Truth about what has happened…and is happening..to Our country. WE must first examine HOW we actually got to this dreadful point in the first place? Then we must identify WHO is truly responsible for encouraging and inciting so much Hatred?…and Fear?…and Division?..and just utter chaos and madness? Yes. Trump is certainly responsible for having stoked all of those destructive flames to intense levels, However, the truth is, Trump exploited what… Read more »
