It was only a matter of time before the wishful thinking of the progressive left, who celebrate the decapitation and assassination of President Donald Trump in comedy and ‘art’, manifested itself in real life.

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, who endorsed President Trump during last year’s presidential campaign, and has been a vocal backer of Trump’s travel ban, was shot in the hip and multiple Congressional aides were hit by a gunman with a rifle who opened fire at a baseball practice in Virginia Wednesday morning.

“At least one aide was shot in the chest. (FoxNews, June 14, 2017).

“The gunman was shot by U.S. Capital Police, apprehended and taken to the hospital. Sen. Mike Lee told Fox News, however, the gunman was dead. Rep. Mo Brooks reportedly used a belt as a tourniquet to stop Scalise’s bleeding.

“Both @POTUS & @VP are aware of the developing situation in Virginia. Our thoughts and prayers are with all affected,” White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer tweeted.

“Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., told Fox News he left just before the shooting. As he walked to his car, a man asked DeSantis if it was Republicans or Democrats practicing.

“About three minutes the shooting began, DeSantis said.

“The shooting began at 7:15 a.m. and lasted about 10 minutes, sources told Fox News.

“Behind third base, I see a rifle…I hear Steve Scalise over near 2nd base scream,” Brooks told CNN.

“The shots were reported on East Monroe Street in Del Ray, Alexandria police said on Twitter at 7:30 a.m. The location was near a YMCA.

“Scalise, 51, is the House majority whip. He has represented Louisiana’s First Congressional District since 2008 and chairs the House Republican Study Committee. He is married with two children. Scalise’s district includes New Orleans.

“Since he’s in leadership, Scalise has a security detail.

“Scalise, who studied computer science at Louisiana State University, worked as a systems engineer before launching his political career. Scalise endorsed President Trump during last year’s presidential campaign, and has been a vocal backer of Trump’s travel ban. As leader of the powerful study group, he has also spearheaded the effort to repeal and replace ObamaCare.

“The Congressional Baseball Game is scheduled for June 15 at Nationals Park. The game, which has been a tradition since 1909, pits Senate and House members of each party who sport the uniform of their home state. The practice location is about 10 miles from Washington, D.C.”

The visceral hatred of the Democrats forced into exile by the election that made Donald Trump, has found its mark.

The visceral hatred of the Democrats forced into exile by the election that made Donald Trump America’s 45th duly elected president, has found its mark.

Seriously disgruntled Democrats, preparing for a Barack Obama ‘Summer of Resistance’ are, at least in spirit, advocating a corrosive hatred that is consuming America.

While the progressives, aided and abetted by the mainstream media, the entertainment industry and some Republicans have dominated the news cycle with a completely manufactured Russian/Trump campaign collusion conspiracy, innocents are now being shot at baseball practice.

In our lifetime, the saying is going from ‘Take Me Out to the Ballgame’ to ‘Take Me Out AT the Ballgame.’

It’s high time for American citizens to demand authorities to STOP THE DEADLY PROGRESSIVE HATRED.

Rep. Mark Walker says gunman targeted congressional baseball practice ‘to kill as many Republican members as possible’

Shortly after the shooting Wednesday morning at a congressional baseball practice, Rep. Mark Walker (R-N.C.) told NBC News that it appeared the “gunman was there to kill as many Republican members as possible.” Walker, who was at the practice for the upcoming annual congressional baseball game in Alexandria, Virginia, confirmed he was “shaken but okay.”

Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) recounted an “odd” encounter he had as he was leaving the field just minutes before the shooting: “There was a guy that walked up to us that was asking whether it was Republicans or Democrats out there, and it was just a little odd,” DeSantis told Fox News.
