It’s Time to Crack Down on Leftist Hate Speech, Violence

The political left is on a hate-speech binge and a violence binge, with the Virginia shooting only the latest example. President Trump and Trump supporters in the last year have been viciously maligned, and even attacked and beaten, while three were even murdered.

Here is an anti-Trump Hate Map detailing almost 200 crimes against Trump supporters, including the murders.

The incitement never ends. The Daily Caller reported about an article that the mainstream left-wing Huffington Post had published and then quickly withdrawn after the Virginia shootings:

(Jason) Fuller’s piece contained rhetoric and imagery that seems tasteless, particularly after Wednesday’s events. Fuller boldly declares in the title that “Trump must be prosecuted — if convicted in a court of law — executed.” Fuller doesn’t stop there, however, as he insists that “impeachment isn’t enough” to “drain the swamp,” and to do so means doling out the “ultimate punishment [execution]” in order to fully restore the moral compass of the U.S.

Fuller’s “ultimate punishment” is not only reserved for the president, but also for “everyone assisting in his agenda,” including Republican Reps. Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan and White House strategist Steve Bannon. Fuller claims that “all must face justice” by being tried, convicted and ultimately executed for treason.

This is precisely why nuts like James Hodgkinson do what they do; because they are instructed to do so.

The left-wing media have ignored the avalanche of incivility and criminality against Republicans and even fueled it, as expected. They are fueling it incrementally just by relentless day-to-day attacks on Trump and Republicans.

There has never been this level of violence, incitement and hatred in America in what might be called “peaceful times”. It comes out of the fact that Donald Trump won a free and fair election and the Democrats cannot stand it.

Obama contributed to the rising hate with quotes like “punish your enemies” and “if they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun”. This shows a militant president who came out of the dirty streets of Chicago. Black Democrat congresswoman Maxine Waters even called Republicans “demons”.

One college professor suggested about Republicans that they should be “lined up and shot”. A former acquaintance of called for the assassination of president Trump. This list is endless.

When Obama won the presidency there was none of this type of speech or violence aimed at Obama or Democrats. Conservatives fought back politically, not physically or verbally. As expected.

Virginia shooter James Hodgkinson was a member of Facebook groups called “The Road to Hell is Paved with Republicans” and “Terminate the Republican Party”. He went on many internet rants against president Trump and Republicans, and against rich people, capitalism, corporations, etc. He was a labor union member. No surprise there; many union activists are angry provocateurs who engage in routine violence.

Hodgkinson also had a long criminal history. Here is a description from New York Magazine:

Hodgkinson has a varied arrest record in St. Clair County (Ill.), for offenses such as failing to obtain electrical permits, damaging a motor vehicle, resisting a peace officer, eluding police, criminal damage to property, driving under the influence and assorted traffic offenses.

In March, a neighbor of Hodgkinson’s called the police on him after he shot a gun 15 times near his home. William Schaumleffel told the Daily Beast that Hodgkinson was firing across a field, into pine trees, and he now believes Hodgkinson was practicing for today’s attack.

In 2006 incident police were called after Hodgkinson punched a woman in the face and pointed a gun at her boyfriend. The Daily Beast reviewed the police report, which said he also beat his daughter.

Hodgkinson was also “observed throwing” an unnamed minor “around the bedroom,” the police report said. Police identified the girl as his daughter. After the girl broke free, Hodgkinson followed and “started hitting her arms, pulling her hair, and started grabbing her off the bed.”

When a woman tried escaping with Hodgkinson’s daughter in a vehicle, Hodgkinson reached inside and “turned off the ignition,” the report said. “James then pulled out a possible pocket knife and cut [her] seatbelt.”
The charges were dismissed.

Here is an excerpt from a website called The Intellectualist about two foster children that Hodgkinson had cared for:

The first foster child was a 17-year old named Wanda Ashley Stock. She committed suicide at age 17 after living with Mr. Hodgkinson for a few months. She committed suicide in 1996 by immolation after dousing herself with gasoline.

In 2002, he became the foster parent of another girl. Police records state that he allegedly abused her.

Four years later he was arrested for domestic battery and discharge of a firearm after he walked into a neighbor’s home looking for the same foster daughter.

Mr. Hodgkinson allegedly punched his foster daughter’s (female) friend in the face and then aimed a shotgun at her friend’s boyfriend. He lost custody of his foster daughter following this incident.

In June of the same year, (Hodgkinson) attacked his neighbor’s dog while it slept on his neighbor’s driveway.

The Smoking Gun website reports:

In 2006, during a family dispute, Hodgkinson allegedly pointed a shotgun at a man who told police that Hodgkinson struck him in the head with the weapon’s wooden stock. As the victim fled, Hodgkinson “shot one round,” police reported. However, “It was unknown at the time of this report if the subject fired the round” at the man “or in the air.” Hodgkinson was arrested for domestic battery and aggravated discharge of a weapon. His rap sheet includes other collars for resisting police, drunk driving, and criminal damage to property.

This is all shocking. Immolation? Firing a round at another person? Allegedly abused a foster daughter? This is like many Democrats and leftists today. His life is a criminal mess, but he sure thinks he knows how to fix everything else like “global warming” and “income inequality”.

And nobody had any suspicion about this guy? This is like the terrorist who attacked Manchester in England, who had appeared in a TV documentary called The Jihadis Next Door but the police never noticed.

Then you wonder: Where did Hodgkinson get his special rifle that he used in the Virginia attack? After Democrats have been demanding and getting background check laws for firearms for decades (which supports), where was the background check on Hodgkinson?

Good question. This is our lax law enforcement today, thanks to decades of Democrat undermining – they make laws to aggrandize themselves and take credit, and then ignore the laws. And then call for more of the same laws.

Hodgkinson is reminiscent of the wacko who killed 32 people at Virginia Tech in 2007. Many people knew this guy was nuts but since he was on a college campus he was no different than any of the other lunatics and so nothing was done about him.

Hodgkinson was a rabid Bernie Sanders supporter and an environmentalist. This is the type of screwball that Democrats cultivate every day with their conspiracy theories, their end-of-the-world ‘climate’ alarmism, and their constant agitation over Trump’s presidency.

We all remember what happened after president Trump won the election last November, and the electoral votes were going to be cast. And there were thousands of death threats issued against electors if they voted for Trump.

Why weren’t these threats followed up on and prosecuted? That would help to end this type of behavior.

But law enforcement is lax – including our immigration laws – thanks to Democrat leniency. And it needs to end now with prosecutions and jailings.

Let’s also look into Hodgkinson’s computer and find out who he was communicating with. believes that the Virginia shooting was a conspiracy. How else did this kook from Illinois, with a high-powered rifle, end up in Alexandria, Virginia at a once-a-year baseball practice game early in the morning for Republican congressional leaders? This had to have been coordinated.

Now the Democrats are suddenly acting very conciliatory about the Hodgkinson shootings. They want “unity” and peace and are staging phony ‘prayer’ sessions. This is a tactic to divert us from the fact that Hodgkinson was one of them, plain as day, no question about it.

Hodgkinson’s Facebook page was a virtual shrine to Bernie Sanders. Hodgkinson also had worked in Sanders’ campaign. No surprise there; people on the left are notoriously and historically violent, or they advocate violence openly or tacitly. But Sanders would have none of Hodgkinson. Sanders said:

“Let me be as clear as I can be. Violence of any kind is unacceptable in our society and I condemn this action in the strongest possible terms; Real change can only come about through nonviolent action, and anything else runs against our most deeply held American values.”

Oh, sure. We know the drill, Bernie… deny, deny, deny. If this had been a Trump supporter killing Democrats Bernie would be having a catatonic tantrum of anger and indignation. Instead, when the tables are turned, Democrats take the civil route. How convenient. suggests that Sanders and his militant friends should start to address the hate speech, incitement and violence coming out of their camp. Until that is addressed, we can forget about all of the prayers and conciliatory talk.
