Bernie Sanders-inspired progressive terrorist James T. Hodgkinson, who attempted a mass assassination of Republican congressmen on Wednesday as they were practicing for a charity baseball game, was carrying a “hit list” of some of the most conservative members of Congress he was targeting, multiple trusted media outlets are confirming.
CBN News reports:
CBN News has confirmed the FBI recovered a ‘hit list’ with several names of Republican congressmen on the body of 66-year-old James Hodgkinson, the Alexandria shooter.
Hodgkinson opened fire on dozens of Republican congressmen and staffers at a baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, on Wednesday. It’s an attack which sent several to the hospital including two Capitol police officers and Congressman Steve Scalise. The Louisiana Republican remains in critical condition at a local hospital.
This evidence may prove the fact that Hodgkinson’s attack was not a random crime, but instead a calculated, premeditated political assassination attempt.
According to reports, the list included leading House conservatives — all with high Conservative Review Liberty Scores — including Alabama Rep. [score]Mo Brooks[/score], South Carolina Rep. [score]Jeff Duncan[/score], and Arizona Rep. [score]Trent Franks[/score]. All three are members of the House Freedom Caucus, a group of the most principled constitutional conservatives in the House of Representatives. Congressman Scalise, who was the most seriously injured in the progressive terrorist attack, is not a member of the House Freedom Caucus.
Hodgkinson was a former campaign worker of Soviet-style socialist Bernie Sanders, whose Marxist class warfare, class envy claptrap has a long sordid history of inspiring massive violence throughout the ages in communist countries.
As we’ve reported previously, rather than media accounts of Hodgkinson being some kind of deranged lunatic, those close to him described more along the lines of your average Bernie Sanders supporter:
The Washington Post reported on Wednesday that Charles Orear, a restaurant manager from St. Louis, worked with Hodgkinson, who is also a “union tradesman” on the campaign trail for socialist Bernie Sanders in Illinois:
Charles Orear, 50, a restaurant manager from St. Louis, said in an interview Wednesday that he became friendly with James T. Hodgkinson, whom law enforcement officials identified as the shooter, during their work in Iowa on Sen. Bernie Sanders’s presidential campaign. Orear said Hodgkinson was a passionate progressive and showed no signs of violence or malice toward others.
“You’ve got to be kidding me,” Orear said when told by phone. “I met him on the Bernie trail in Iowa, worked with him in the Quad Cities area.”
Orear described Hodgkinson as a “quiet guy” who was “very mellow, very reserved” when they stayed overnight at a Sanders’s supporter home in Rock Island, Ill., after canvassing for the senator.
“He was this union tradesman, pretty stocky, and we stayed up talking politics,” he said. “He was more on the really progressive side of things.”
Hodgkinson’s widow, Suzanne Hodgkinson, said Thursday afternoon that she had “no idea” he was going to carry out the murders. James told her that he was going to Washington, D.C. to “work on taxes” and “change the tax brackets,” she said.
According to Hodgkinson’s recently removed Facebook page, the “Bernie Bro,” was big fans of some of the most hateful progressive leftists on TV, including HBO’s John Oliver, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, former MSNBC host and current Putin propagandist on Russia Today (RT) host Ed Schultz, and HBO’s Bill Maher, all leading figures in what we call the Democrat Media Complex:
