GOP Assasination Gunman ID’d as 66 Year Old James Hodgkinson … Was a Trump Hating Democrat, Volunteered For Sanders Presidential Campaign (Update: Suspect Died at Hospital)
ASSASSIN WAS A FAR-LEFTY, HATED TRUMP, BERNIE SANDERS SUPPORTER …
The gunman who opened fire yesterday in Alexandria, Va on Republican Congressman as they practiced baseball for an upcoming charity even has been identified as 66 year old James T. Hodgkinson from Belleville, Illinois. According to accounts, he was an uber-lib who hated Donald Trump and Republicans. By all accounts, this man snapped. One has to wonder whether it was made worse by the hateful political rhetoric spewed by the MSM and the far-Left. His former lawyer, Lyndon Evanko, described Hodgkinson was “a pushy little bastard” and said “He came across as a very irascible, angry little man, but not somebody I would expect to do something like this.” So what do you think now?
One has to question the out of control, vile and hateful, over the top rhetoric coming from the LEFT. Townhall questions whether this shooting of Republicans: Was the Gunman Influenced by ‘The Resistance’?
The gunman who was killed by cops after opening fire on a Republican congressional baseball practice on Wednesday, the president’s 71st birthday, was a Trump-hating Democrat and Bernie Sanders supporter with a long history of violence.
James T. Hodgkinson, 66, from Belleville, Illinois, was killed by Capitol Police after firing up to 100 rounds from an assault rifle at a baseball park in Alexandria, Virginia, leaving five injured including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise at 7am on Wednesday.
Scalise’s condition worsened throughout the afternoon and was deemed critical by hospital staff after he he was released from emergency surgery on his hip.
Two Capitol Police officers were shot as they bravely returned fire on Hodgkinson while the lawmakers scrambled across the field to safety. Congressional staffer Zachary Barth and lobbyist Matt Mika were also shot but both are expected to recover.
Hodgkinson was a staunch Sanders supporter and campaigned for the left-wing senator to get the Democratic nomination for president last year.
He ranted against President Trump on social media and had previously described The Rachel Maddow Show as his favorite thing on TV.
The married union tradesman threatened to ‘destroy’ the president, whom he called a ‘traitor’ on social media – but was not known to Secret Service.
WAR ON POLICE … BLUE LIVES MATTER.
Ad reported at USA Today, the number of police officers shot and killed in the United States is 44% higher than at this time last year following the Dallas ambush Thursday night that left five officers dead. This is what happens when you have leadership and an administration that blames authority, rather than the suspects for wrong doings. This is what happens when “Black Lives Matters” is glorified as having some kind of point and justification when random acts of excessive police force are made to appear as they are an everyday occurrence and systemic, while black on black crime is completely and willfully ignored.
This is what happens when the MSM, liberals, Democrats and Barack Obama blame a terrorist shooting in Orlando, Florida on the NRA … but are silent and as quiet as church mice when it comes to make the same blame for the rhetoric from “Black Lives Matters”. Sorry folks, you cant have it both ways. Imagine that, liberal hypocrisy.
The sad reality is that there is a War on Police …
The number of police officers shot and killed in the USA is 44% higher than at this time last year following the Dallas ambush Thursday night that left five officers dead, according to data from the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.
The deaths of four Dallas police officers and one Dallas transit officer from sniper fire during a protest in the city Thursday raised the national total of firearm deaths among police to 26. This compares with 18 at this point in time in 2015, said Nick Breul, director of research for the fund in Washington, D.C.
Breul said it was also the latest of 11 ambushes of police officers so far this year across the country, already outpacing the eight ambushes of law enforcement that occurred last year.
25 Year Old Army Reservist Micah Xavier Johnson ID’d as Shooter Who Murdered 5 Police Officers at Dallas “Black Lives Matters” Protest … Suspect Elimanated by Bomb Carrying Robot
COP KILLER IDENTIFIED … BLACK MAN STATED HE WANTED TO KILL WHITE PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY WHITE OFFICERS.
25 year old Army Reservist Micah Xavier Johnson has been identified as the individual who murdered 5 police officers Thursday night during the “Black Lives Matter’s” protest in Dallas, Texas. Yes, he was black. The suspect stated that he was upset about Black Lives Matter and that he was upset about the recent police shootings of black suspects. Also, he said he was upset at white people. The suspect, Micah Johnson, stated to law enforcement prior to his demise, that he wanted to kill white people, especially white officers. Isn’t that special. I guess this sick SOB was not upset about black on black crime. The suspect claims he acted alone, however, three suspect were taken into custody following the shooting. Thankfully, law enforcement put an end to this man’s killings forever, as they blew him up to smithereens with the aid of a bomb carrying robot.
So the suspect wanted to kill white people, so is this a hate crime?
Sorry, a cop killer does not get his face posted, but the device that killed him does.
The man who shot 12 police officers, killing five, at a Black Lives Matter protest in downtown Dallas on Thursday night has been named as Micah Xavier Johnson, a 25-year-old Army reservist with no criminal history or ties to terror groups.
Johnson, from Mesquite, Texas, a 20-minute drive from Dallas, reportedly told law enforcement that he was a veteran, and claimed to have acted alone, countering initial reports that as many as four gunmen were involved in the massacre.
‘The suspect said he was upset about Black Lives Matter. He said he was upset about the recent police shootings of black suspects. He said he was upset at white people. The suspect stated he wanted to kill white people, especially white officers,’ Dallas Police Chief David Brown revealed at a 7.30am press conference.
Cops cornered Johnson at El Centro College at around 11pm on Thursday and attempted to negotiate, but four hours later the talks failed and a robot was brought in to detonate a bomb and kill the suspect. This was after shots had rung out at a previously peaceful protest in downtown Dallas with demonstrators screaming and running for their lives as cops dropped dead one by one.
Johnson wore body armor, which would suggest why a cop was not able to kill him when he confronted him in a one-on-one situation which was caught on camera. It resulted in the cop being executed. He also carried an AR-15 assault rifle and a handgun, and several rounds of ammunition.
During a search of his home, detectives found bomb making materials, ballistic vests, rifles, ammunition and a personal journal of combat tactics.
A black SUV found at the scene of the shootings was listed as registered to Delphene Johnson, also of Mesquite, who is understood to be his mother. Police gathered at the address of Ms Johnson on Friday and were seen searching the property.
The casualties include Dallas police officers Patrick Zamarripa, Michael Krol, Lorne Ahrens and Michael J. Smith, as well as DART Officer Brent Thompson.
Presser of how suspect was put down and what the suspect said, wanted to kill white people
