On Wednesday, a progressive leftist terrorist and social justice warrior identified by authorities as James T. Hodgkinson, 66, from Belleville, Illinois, a loyal campaign worker of communist Bernie Sanders, opened fire at a Republican baseball practice after first verifying that it was Republicans and not Democrats practicing.
A review of Hodgkinson’s Facebook page before it was taken down reveals him to be a supporter and campaign worker for communist Bernie Sanders and a fan of radical leftists in the Democrat Media Complex like MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and HBO’s Bill Maher.
As more information comes to light about Hodgkinson’s radical leftist ideology and motivations to attempt to assassinate Republicans due to his disagreements with their political ideology, a video of a short interview from 2011 has surfaced in which the progressive terrorist, in defending the Occupy Wall Street movement, rails against “the one-percent” using identical Marxist class warfare language to that of Bernie Sanders.
“The 99 percent are getting pushed around, and the one percent doesn’t give a damn,” Hodgkinson told the interviewer. “So we’ve got to speak up for our country,” he said.
In his 2016 speech at the Democratic National Convention (DNC) Bernie Sanders said as much while calling for “our Revolution,” no doubt inspirational words to fellow traveler James T. Hodgkinson:
“Together, my friends, we have begun a political revolution to transform America and that revolution – Our Revolution – continues. Election days come and go. But the struggle of the people to create a government which represents all of us and not just the one percent – a government based on the principles of economic, social, racial and environmental justice – that struggle continues. And I look forward to being part of that struggle with you.”
Republican Congressman Steve Scalise, who was shot by Hodgkinson, is in critical condition at the time of this writing Wednesday evening. The medical center where Rep. Scalise is being cared for announced that the congressman will require additional surgery after his shot to the hip area. Please pray for Steve Scalise and his family:

Class warfare and class envy are Marxist tactics that have long led to the type of violence committed on Wednesday. Thus far, Bernie Sanders has refused to reject this vile anti-American rhetoric that historically has always led to violence.
