The Left’s violent rhetoric has claimed another victim, as a gunman opened fire at a practice for the Congressional Baseball Game in Alexandria, VA this morning. The attack injured at least three, including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise.
“Are they Republicans or Democrats?” The gunman supposedly asked Representative Jeff Duncan before opening fire. Clearly, he got the answer he desired as he then shot between 50 and 100 times, according to sources on the scene. Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), also confirmed that he was asked that question — see the Fox News video below.

Celebrities like Kathy Griffin, who did a photo shoot holding a mock severed head of President Trump, and the Public Theater, which staged a version of “Julius Caesar” that assassinated Trump, have been encouraging violence among those who may not agree with their lawmakers. Her prominent position has no doubt encouraged those who may have violent tendencies to act on them and join the “resistance” against Trump that the Left is trying to build.
