It’s only been a few days since that left-wing nut job brought the bullets to the baseball game in Alexandria, and promptly had his Bernie-loving ass blasted to kingdom come. Although the only death was the douchenozzle attacker’s, many of the attendees were seriously injured, including Steve Scalise. But, that hasn’t stopped the left from trying to pick up some political yardage. The new talking point on the left is that Scalise deserved to take a bullet or two.
Most notably, from George Takei and MSNBC…
The universe doesn't joke around. The officer who saved bigoted, homophobic Rep. Steve Scalise during baseball practice was a black lesbian.

Mind you, while liberals were attacking Scalise, he was still in critical condition. Thankfully, he’s been upgraded to just serious condition. But it doesn’t change the fact that while he was caught between Virginia and the hereafter, the left was still going for his jugular. For them, it was just another Saturday.
Though, they haven’t been without condemnation…
He's fighting for his life right now. What is wrong with you? Until he's out of ICU, why don't you take it up with the Pope. https://t.co/UzmTbjn87N

This 'Scalise kinda deserved it' narrative making it's way through liberal media and MSNBC is pretty sickening.

Notice these despicable smears on someone fighting 4 his life don't mention that officer was part of Scalise's detail & close w his family. https://t.co/KFB9tjRbn6

Takei proves the motivation behind violence: if they don't think you're just wrong, but evil, then all acts are permitted. https://t.co/asQ4nU8Exl

MSNBC- "While this is tragic, none of those puppies marched for a $15 minimum wage"

Take that, George Takei! At least some people still have some sense about them.
None of this reaction is surprising, given the left’s tendency to warp the news to push a narrative of misogynist, gay-bashing Republican Nazis running amok. The endgame has always been outrage and “resistance,” peaceful or otherwise.
The left’s only real beef with the bullpen bullet-pitcher isn’t the fact that Hodgkinson went all John Wilkes Booth and tried getting his murder spree on. But, that he wasn’t organized enough for their tastes. “Spare us your amateurish lead-slinging and leave the one-eight-sevening to the professionals.” Witness ye all, the birth of homicide as a legit leftist political tactic.
So mark you calendars. Less than a week after we were being lectured about civility and toning down rhetoric, the left went on the attack against a Congressman who was still fighting for his life. All in a half-assed attempt to put a couple extra points up on the political scoreboard. Swing and a miss, lefties…
