On Wednesday morning, a member of the liberal #Resistance against President Trump made his way to a baseball field in Alexandria, Virginia.
His goal was to shoot and kill as many Republicans as possible.
Once there, he found his targets: a group of House Republicans practicing for an upcoming Congressional baseball game.
The gunman, a Bernie supporter, asked a nearby person, “Are those Republicans or Democrats?”
Once he confirmed they were Republicans, the shooter retrieved a rifle from his vehicle and opened fire on the group, shooting 5 people, including House Whip Steve Scalise.
This hateful act is another example of violence against conservatives, spurred on by rhetoric from liberals and the fake news media.
From “comedian” Kathy Griffin’s ISIS-like beheading photo shoot to liberal plays depicting Trump’s assassination, the left has grown increasingly violent in their hatred towards President Trump and conservatives in general.
It’s been a nonstop stream of vitriol from so-called “journalists” and celebrities.
Deranged and violent liberals regularly make death threats towards President Trump, while Democrat terror groups like ANTIFA viciously attack innocent Trump supporters.
Liberals have gleefully PUSHED violence, hate, and a “civil war” type environment with their insane Trump #Resistance.
Liberals need to OWN the violence and what happened today on that baseball field, because their calls for violent rebellion have encouraged this.
Since President Trump took office, there have been 12 THOUSAND tweets calling for his assassination.
The question now is – when will Democrats and our fake news media stop with the dangerous rhetoric and start behaving like sane adults?
If they don’t shape up quickly, more people will be shot, and worse, killed, simply for disagreeing with their political point of view.

More than 12,000 tweets have called for President Donald Trump‘s assassination since he was inaugurated two weeks ago, according to Dataminr statistics.
Social media users like Zachary Benton, 24, of Ohio have already been charged with threatening the president, while Madonna came under fire for saying she wanted to ‘blow up’ the White House during the Women’s March in Washington DC.
Former Secret Service special agent Tim Franklin told Mashable that the agency was likely to look for repeated threats, specific details of any possible attacks, and other trends before launching an investigation.
Donald Trump became the first US president to enter office with less than a 50per cent approval rating, according to Gallup polls.
A Dataminr search of the keywords ‘assassinate Trump’, revealed more than 12,000 posts on Twitter since January 20, Mashable reported.
But the Secret Service is likely to let many of the social media users off the hook, and Franklin said: ‘They’re not going to to beat down the door of everybody who makes a negative Twitter comment.’
nstead, the law enforcement agency will look out for certain trends, like those who make repeated threats, or include specific details about how they plan to take down the president.
Benson, from Fairview Park, Ohio, tweeted on election day: ‘Diplomacy. F***ing fools. I hate you all. I want to bomb every one of your voting booths and your general areas.’
Minutes later, he wrote: ‘My life goal is to assassinate Trump. Don’t care if I serve infinite sentences. That man deserves to decease existing.’
Despite apologies to the Secret Service agents who showed up to question him the next day, Benson was charged with threatening the president and faces up to five years in prison if convicted.
Heather Lowrey, a burlesque dancer from Louisville, Kentucky, was also investigated by the Secret Service.
She tweeted on January 17: ‘If someone was cruel enough to assassinate MLK, maybe someone will be kind enough to assassinate Trump.’
Special Agent Richard Ferretti suggested people ‘think twice’ about their social media activity.
While Facebook and Twitter have policies to suspend accounts or take down violent or threatening, thousands of posts against Trump remain on both platforms.
