Lake month a communist campaign worker of Senator Bernie Sanders, with a hit list in hand of Republican members of Congress he was targeting for mass assassination, opened fire at a baseball diamond in Alexandria, VA, as they were preparing for an annual charity baseball game. It almost resulted in the death of Republican Congressman Steve Scalise, who continues to fight for his life.
The progressive terrorist, James T. Hodgkinson, who a fellow campaign worker described as a “passionate progressive,” was clearly inspired by Sanders’ Marxist class warfare claptrap, as his Facebook page looked like your run-of-the-mill progressive leftist Sanders supporter — railing against the evils of the “one-percent” and preaching Sanders communist message of social justice, equality of outcomes, and a “political revolution.”
Hodgkinson was also a fan of nearly every far-left television host in the country, including HBO’s John Oliver, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, former MSNBC host and current Putin propagandist on Russia Today (RT) Ed Schultz, and HBO’s Bill Maher, all leading figures in what we call the Democrat Media Complex.
And even though Hodgkinson belonged to a “Terminate the Republican Party” group on Facebook, the leftist Washington Post went full-on Fake News Saturday in a piece by Peter Holley entitled, “In Alexandria shooter’s hometown, rage-filled radio host channels middle America’s inner frustration,” that twists itself into knots trying to tie James Hodgkinson’s act of progressive terrorism to a kook-fringe alt-right (or something) radio host out of Alexandria, Bob Romanik, who supported Donald Trump.
Romanik calls himself “The Kraziest Son of a Bitch you’ll ever hear on the radio” and “politically insane” on his website and while there is no evidence of James Hodgkinson ever even listening to him, somehow WaPo invented a connection that demands a retraction.
Revision of year: WP suggests, without evidence, Alexandria shooter was inspired by right-wing bigoted radio talker. https://t.co/97tHJDrofH

This is shameful propaganda journalism. The leftstream media is so hellbent to try to paint Trump as a racist, bigot, etc., as well as cover-up Bernie Sanders anti-American and violent rhetoric, that they will attempt to leap tall buildings where none exist.
