Suspect Reportedly Asked "Are Those Republicans Or Democrats" Before Starting To Shoot

Today's dramatic shooting attack on Congressmen during an early morning baseball practice appears to have been politically motivated.

According to RealClearNews reporter Rebecca Berg, "Rep. Jeff Duncan plans to give a statement to police regarding a conversation he had with the shooter before leaving practice early" and she notes that "The man was wearing running clothes, asked Duncan: "Are those Republicans or Democrats out there practicing?""

Fox confirms, quoting Rep. DeSantis according to whom, the "Man Asked Whether Republicans or Dems Were on Field Before Scalise Shooting"

She adds: "Amazing heroism: Rep. Brooks tells CNN one member of security detail was shot in leg, still helped tend to Scalise afterward"

Meanwhile, Rand Paul told MSNBC that "Scalise being at practice “saved everybody else’s life. W/o leadership person there would’ve been no security there.”

It's not often you see folks in Washington jog with a rifle.

It's usually just in Chicago.

What difference? does it make?

If that rifle had been equipped with a Kalifornian 'bullet button' and 10 rd. mag this whole tragedy could have been avoided... right?


But I thought that ball field was a gun free zone.

Not with players on first and 2nd and two outs. If a pop fly is hit, everyone shoots at it.
It's called the infield fire rule.
But it only applies in DC.

And Chicago.

Someone was able to pull their weapon and return fire or it would have been worse.

CNN; "A crazed alt-right winger shoots (no party identification) in the hip"

Trump's fault.  His policies triggered the shooter.

Unless they significantly upped the game, this wasn't a false flag. 

Actual people of significance aren't shot in false flags. If it were a false flag some security staff would be shot, but no senators. If it were an assassination to get rid of someone, they'd be dead and not injured. There would also be a few other fatalities to cover the motive.

MSM is flamming the haterd again Republicans and now a nut job acted out. It won't be too long until someone took the advice of Kathy Griffen and go after Trump.

artvandalai's picture

Look for the idiots putting on the Shakespeare play to include republican senators being killed in their act.

adr's picture

Even though the shooter asked if they were Republicans or Democrats, and the shooter shot Republicans, CNN will probably still claim right wing nutjob. 

Considering 99% of DC voted for Hillary, I don't think there are any right wing nutjobs in DC.

Perfect time for President Trump to shut down that fraudulent Mueller investigation !!

It's probably a Mossad false flag.

How about you democrat's end the nasty rhetoric......? After all, we American's have more in common than we do differences, but you wouldn't be able to tell that by what you see on CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, etc as well as when they interview you, when your ANTIFA goons hit the streets and when your celebrities voice your disgusting HATE.........
