James T. Hodgkinson has been identified as the leftwing loon who carefully planned and executed his attempt to slaughter Republican lawmakers yesterday morning during their annual charity baseball practice.
In addition to GOP Majority Whip Steve Scalise, three other people were shot.
Capitol Police in attendance as security detail for Scalise were able to respond swiftly, ultimately killing Hodgkinson before he was able take any lives.
As the story quickly unfolded it became clear that he was a committed anti-GOP protestor with an extreme, leftist ideology which included liking the social profiles of the SPLC, Media Matters, Rachel Maddow and others.
He declared in a recent Facebook post, “It’s time to destroy Trump and Co.”
The leftmedia is scrambling today to change the story to one of needed gun control to distract from the radical leftist elements of anti-Trump incitement.

The Illinois man who allegedly wounded Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., and several others at a baseball practice early Wednesday in Alexandria, Virginia, apparently was a fan of the Southern Poverty Law Center, which nearly five years ago was linked to a domestic terror attack at the Washington office of the Family Research Council.
James T. Hodgkinson, who reportedly shot at Republican congressmen and staffers who were at a practice for an annual charity baseball game for members of Congress, was an avid supporter of Sen. Bernie Sanders’ 2016 presidential campaign, according to his Facebook page.
Many of Hodgkinson’s profile pictures featured Sanders, as did his cover photo before Facebook removed his page Wednesday shortly after he was identified as the suspect.
Hodgkinson “liked” many anti-Republican, far-left Facebook pages, including “Dump Trump,” “Liar, Liar, Republican campaign on fire,” “Republicans ARE the problem,” “Berniecrats United to Resist Trump” and “Fire the Republican Government.”
Overtly anti-Republican groups were not the only things he liked on Facebook. His “liked” TV shows favored by the left-wing such as “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” on HBO, “The Rachel Maddow Show” on MSNBC and “The Daily Show” with Trevor Noah on Comedy Central.
The shows regularly paint Republicans to be incompetent at best and outright fascists and Nazis at worst.
He also was a member of groups such as “The Road To Hell Is Paved With Republicans” and “Community Justice Center,” a California-based group of community organizers who opposed Republicans. He posted statements such as “It’s time to destroy Trump and Co.” and that Scalise should “lose his job.”
He “liked” the Southern Poverty Law Center, which itself has been linked to domestic terror and once put Ben Carson on its list of “haters.”
SPLC’s past targeting of FRC was cited in court as the impetus for an attack on the Christian organization’s Washington, D.C., headquarters.
The legal team at Liberty Counsel, criticizing SPLC for “falsely and recklessly labeling Christian ministries as ‘hate groups,’” noted SPLC is “responsible for the first conviction of a man who intended to commit mass murder targeted against a policy organization in Washington, D.C.”
