I don’t want to draw any conclusions about this morning’s shooting in Alexandria, VA, in which Rep. Steve Scalise, Republican House Whip, was shot. I did want to mention the shooting, as well as what we know so far. CNN does have regular updates, so I’m linking to it here.
A gunman opened fire at a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, on Wednesday, injuring Rep. Steve Scalise, a senior Republican politician, as well as others, according to Rep. Mo Brooks, who was at the practice during the attack.
A note on the report. I don’t know if Brooks just doesn’t understand firearms, or whether CNN’s reporting is dumb, or whether it’s an unfortunate combination of both, but this…
“The gun was a semiautomatic,” Brooks said. “It continued to fire at different people. You can imagine, all the people on the field scatter.”
In any case, it appears at least one Capitol Police officer was shot, and the suspect is in custody. I won’t keep updating this, but will rather do a longer post once the story is solidified.
Thoughts with everyone involved.
UPDATE: I just ran across this on my lunch 5 minutes, so I thought I’d quickly update this post. The rancid bag of stale effluvia who went on a shooting spree in Alexandria this morning has been identified as the now thankfully deceased and rotting in hell James T. Hodgkinson of Belleville, Illinois. His FaceBook page is awfully illuminating. He’s apparently a rabid socialist piece of shit and a Bernie Sanders supporter. His profile photo is the following graphic, and his cover photo is a picture of a grinning Bernie Sanders.
Court records also show Hodgkinson was arrested in 2006 on the suspicion of battery, domestic battery, criminal damage of property and reckless discharge of a firearm.”
The Chicago Tribune reports this violent, pro-tyranny cocksucker has a long history of being a… well… tyrannical, socialist cocksucker.
Over the years, Hodgkinson wrote more than a dozen letters to the editor of the local paper in which he supported higher taxes and advocated for Democratic candidates, such as John Kerry.
You want a civil war? Because that’s how you start a civil war, assholes. I didn’t think it would be long before the fascist dildoes of the progtarded left graduated from bottle throwing and forcibly shutting down opposing voices to shootings and murder.
Guess what, assholes! We’re way better armed and prepared than you are. You will die much like this unhinged knob-gobbler – painfully and alone and reviled by all normal people.
A few years ago, I took the Redhead to a Nats baseball game in DC. We had a blast, just screaming, yelling and enjoying the nice weather courtesy of a good friend of mine.
One of the players sent a foul ball directly at our section, and the Redhead, being a kid, scrambled for the ball along with scores of others.
He didn’t get it. But the guy who did, saw the little boy with the crestfallen look on his face, and handed the ball to him, making the grateful Redhead smile with joy. I remember thinking how kind that gentleman was, and how he truly represented the best in America and the spirit of the game.
Notice, the little girl caught the ball, and this trailer trash twat, simply grabbed the ball out of the hands of this child, and sat down, severely satisfied with herself. And some douchetard redneck trash gave her a high-five for stealing from a kid. Stay classy, shitbags!
I’m told the stadium staff jumped in and took care of the problem by giving the little girl another ball.
What they also should have done is shove the first ball up that bitch’s ass.
It’s not that I think little kids are entitled. But really… she grabbed the ball out of the little girl’s arms and hi-fives her trailer trash buddy.
Wow… don’t you feel all special, having stolen a ball from a little kid? Did you grab her lunch money while you were at it too?
There are (at least to me) some very obvious things out of which the government should keep its proboscis. You may agree or disagree about gun control, health care, education, any number of entitlement programs that keep indolent assholes on the dole, make local and state entities beholden to the Feds, etc.
But I can’t imagine you guys would disagree on the following utter ridiculosity!
I think the US Olympic team uniforms are just butt ugly. They make our athletes look like rejects from a private school. But do we really need Harry Reid out there screeching about them being made in China and demanding they be burnt? And worse yet, suggesting that all the athletes wear unitards? (read: tights) While I agree that our uniforms should have been manufactured here – just on damn principle – the Olympic Committee is a private entity, and it is free to do whatever the bloody hell it wants. And don’t you have a budget to pass or something, Harry?
Why the bleeding, oozing, stinking fuck was Congress involved in this whole baseball steroid mess? Why did they waste time with Roger Clemens? Once again, I ask – didn’t they have a budget to pass or something? What, did they already solve the nation’s problems? So soon?
Someone want to tell me why Orrin Hatch and Max Baucus stuck their collective dicks into the BCS? College football is a game, douchebags. Don’t you have better things to do?
Why the bleeding hell did they get involved in the NFL “Bounty” issue? Why? Luckily, they “magnanimously” backed off, claiming “Because of that willingness to address the issue, and due to the reforms the league is announcing after meeting with me today, I will withhold Congressional hearings on this matter and continue to work with the league and its players to ensure the league’s rules are sufficient and that nothing like these bounty programs ever happens again.” BAD,NFL! You’d better straighten up or Dick Durbin will spank your collective asses! Because they’re Congress, and they’re your fat momma, who inserts herself into your business, despite the fact that you’re a grownup and do not require her meddling.
Oh and boxing? Really? Have we solved every outstanding issue in this country? Are we now so free of responsibilities and aching for something to do that we need to get involved in fuggin’ BOXING, Congress?
Internet regulation! I don’t like piracy any more than you do, but Holy Toenail Fungus in a Sweater! Does Congress really need to get involved?
Internet gambling! What the hell is Congress doing trying to save us from ourselves?
Spending money on this shit. This list is amazing. Among the 30 douchebaggy things that your government is spending money on is $175,587 “to determine if cocaine makes Japanese quail engage in sexually risky behavior,” $200,000 on “a tattoo removal program” in Mission Hills, California, 2.6 million dollars to train Chinese prostitutes to drink responsibly, $1.8 million was spent on a “museum of neon signs” in Las Vegas, Nevada, and my favorite: $800,000 in “stimulus funds” to study the impact of a “genital-washing program” on men in South Africa
Marriage. Why the hell should it matter to the federal government whether two guys (or girls) want to form a union? What gives the federal government the authority to tell individuals what to do with their lives or whether they can spend their lives together “legally?” Do us all a favor and stay the fuck out of private matters, assholes.
And pass a bloody budget already!
