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

Tyler Durden's picture

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.”

I blame the "Climate of Hate" fostered and perpetuated daily by Libtard Dems. Just using your own logic liberals, get used to it.

Last year the same guy asked, "Is that Seth Rich over there?"

A bunch of years ago the same guy asked, "Is that Vince Foster over there?"

Maybe if they were working on tax reform, health care etc. instead of playing basketball, this wouldn't have happened

Some people are tired of fake elections and fake democracy. They resolve "drain the swamp" situation old-fashion way.

 God help me for saying this, but I have a very uneasy feeling that we are all being desensitized by all of this- the current Caesar play, now the shootings.. I truly hope our President understands their are real forces that want to do him in, and not just politically.  When as a society do we take a stand and say enough- it is NOT okay to have a depication of killing the POTUS in a play. It is not okay to gun down Republicans. It is not ok to falsely accuse him of treason and draft articles of impeachment.


The Deep State is not going to stop until they remove him from office one way or another. I pray for President Trump and for our COuntry.

Only a bomb-throwing anarcho-leftist MUCKER would ask a question like that.

Republicans, democrats and politicians in general want to believe that their policies are not affecting average people. Just because our government system pays them all well, they think they are onoculated.

Remember the constitution. "We The People"

Well, I think "The People" will start to "reach out and touch" these politicians so they all remember their roots and they are here to serve the people.

Another great example of why we don't need gun control. We need libtard control. When their emotions run amok, look out!

"Everybody run, Libby got a gun!"

I've long advocated that liberals should NOT be allowed to own a firearm, but in the interests of protecting the 2A, I have to capitulate on that belief. As long as they don't infringe on my life, liberty, or property, they can live.

Supreme Court Judge Scalia murdered and now Scalise shot.  The 1st was an obvious "HIT", THAT NO ONE DARED TO EVEN QUESTION!  Now, simply Republicans in general were targeted.  In my view, THIS LAST SHOOTING WAS CAUSED BY THE DEMO/SOCIALIST ALIGNED PRESS!!!!!  The MSM is absolutely responsible for this and I BET THEY ARE SECRETLY PROUD OF IT!!!  Maybe even OPENLY!!!

NOW we have 200 Demo Senators filing suit against PRESIDENT TRUMP over owning stock in a company that owns a Hotel that foreigners stayed in, something that is another simple witch hunt and they know it, just like the Russian B.S.!  Naturally, the MSM propaganda machine will lead the Demos to believe something entirely different while distracting TRUMP from CHANGING THIS COUNTRY and draining the swamp!!!  The Demos are doing their best to create WAR within the U.S. so they can destroy the U.S.A., it's Constitution and the Republican Party.

ITS TIME the TRUE AMERICANS stand up for this country!!!!!

Not to derail your epic rant, but, there are only a total of 100 senators in congress.

You received one downvote ... I'm guessing politicians read this forum. ;-)

Nobody wants anyone hurt but politicians are treating the people of this country with so much disdain that they will most likely receive more of these kind of reaction from the people of this nation.

Remember, everything said before the word "but", is bullshit.

As with so-called "good Muslims" not standing for clear right and wrong and calling on their number to stop the violence from their ranks..,'s yet another opportunity for the prog left to speak up, and demand an end to leftist terrorism coming from their side.

Perhaps a last opportunity...

"Are they repubs or dems?"

WHAT did the guy give as an answer? Where does it say what his answer was?

Why do Repos and Demos get so angry when you say they are the same, they're interchangable ?

please, please be calm !!

Doctor Spin is still working on the wounded.  We will release an officially approved statement after the patseys are pinned or dead and perps are safely out of the country.  All we can say is the Rep Scalise kept saying," Yes, I can hear you now....I can hear you now.."  But Doctor Spin wasn't asking any questions. Oh and we found a Russian passport near the scene.

Bottom line }  no matter the flavor, persuation or belief it is BLOWBACK right outside your door NOW TESTIFY!  (max volume)

The movie ran through me
The glamour subdue me
The tabloid untie me
I'm empty please fill me
Mister anchor assure me
That Baghdad is burning
Your voice it is so soothing
That cunning mantra of killing
I need you my witness
To dress this up so bloodless
To numb me and purge me now
Of thoughts of blaming you
Yes the car is our wheelchair
My witness your coughing
Oily silence mocks the legless
Ones who travel now in coffins
On the corner
The jury's sleepless
We found your weakness
And it's right outside your door
Now testify

Now testify
It's right outside your door
Now testify
Yes testify
It's right outside your door

With precision you feed me
My witness I'm hungry
Your temple it calms me
So I can carry on
My slaving sweating the skin right off my bones
On a bed of fire I'm choking on the smoke that fills my home
The wrecking ball is rushing
Witness your blushing
The pipeline is gushing
While here we lie in tombs
While on the corner
The jury's sleepless
We found your weakness
And it's right outside your door
Now testify
Yeah testify
It's right outside your door
Now testify
Now testify
It's right outside our door

Mass graves for the pump and the price is set, and the price is set
Mass graves for the pump and the price is set, and the price is set
Mass graves for the pump and the price is set, and the price is set
Mass graves for the pump and the price is set, and the price is set

Who controls the past now controls the future
Who controls the present now controls the past
Who controls the past now controls the future
Who controls the present now?

Now testify
It's right outside your door

Has the guy who was asked if they were D or R given a description of the shooter? Or will we never hear from (or see) him again.

"you stupid fucks you deserve what's coming"

Well, we could go into detail on that. But a lot of people, through their laziness, inattention, insouciance, ignorance and apathy, have served this dinner to themselves. So I would say this applies to all races, colors, and creeds that have abandoned their civic duty of paying some fucking attention, and not letting it get this far out of hand via the tried and true method of giving a shit about something besides themselves. It is now very, very late in the game.

Here is an interesting factoid. I just went to GoDaddy and while is taken, is still available. So there is still some hope left. either way, it looks like a good morning to start loading up on gun stocks again.
