I won’t dwell on the actions of James T. Hodgkinson:
“WASHINGTON — The man suspected of opening fire on Republican members of the congressional baseball team early Wednesday morning was distraught over the election of President Trump and traveled to Washington in recent weeks to protest, his brother said on Wednesday.
The suspect, James Thomas Hodgkinson, 66, of Belleville, Ill., died in a Washington hospital after a shootout with the police.
“I know he wasn’t happy with the way things were going, the election results and stuff,” his brother, Michael Hodgkinson, said in a telephone interview shortly after he received the news on Wednesday. He added that he was not close to his brother and had not been aware why he remained in Washington.
“Totally out of the blue,” he added, saying that his brother was engaged in politics but otherwise led a normal life. …”
This is your local moonbat whipped into new heights of hysteria by the Lügenpresse. It is exactly what Democrats initially assumed happened in Arizona in 2011 with Gabrielle Giffords and the Tea Party except that Jared Loughner was an apolitical schizophrenic.
“Just Tuesday morning, Mr. Hodgkinson posted a cartoon on Facebook explaining “How does a bill work?” “That’s an easy one, Billy,” the cartoon reads. “Corporations write the bill and then bribe congress until it becomes law.”
“That’s Exactly How It Works…..” Mr. Hodgkinson wrote. …”
I can’t say that I disagree. Hodgkinson was right about this. I’m frustrated by these things too and it does seem like the system is incapable of being reformed:
I’m not getting the impression that Hodgkinson was crazy. He seems like an ordinary partisan Democrat who followed his beliefs to their logical conclusion. It is worth noting that he didn’t go on a rampage shooting against local Republicans in the St. Louis area. Instead, he drove to Washington, DC to take his wrath out on Congress. He thought about it for over a month.
