Sanders Statement on Shooting & Shooter at GOP Baseball Practice

Washington, DC...June 14 – Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) issued the following statement after receiving reports on the alleged shooter at a congressional baseball practice Wednesday morning: "I have just been informed that the alleged shooter at the Republican baseball practice is someone who apparently volunteered on my presidential campaign. I am sickened by this despicable act. Let me be as clear as I can be. Violence of any kind is unacceptable in our society and I condemn this action in the strongest possible terms. Real change can only come about through nonviolent action, and anything else runs against our most deeply held American values.

"My hopes and prayers are that Representative Scalise, congressional staff and the Capitol Police Officers who were wounded make a quick and full recovery. I also want to thank the Capitol Police for their heroic actions to prevent further harm."

        Democrats started their tradition of Republican assassinations by killing Lincoln.
        Now Another assassination attempt on our Republican Congresspersons by another Democrat socialist. This shooter is a Typical insane Bernie supporter and worked on Crazy Bernie's last campaign run for President.
        The Democrats and Main Stream Media are ginning up so much anti-Trump BS that they've driven their already weak minded Democrat supporters mad.

        What does ISIS, Democrats and Nazis all have in common?
        They all want to shut down free speech by killing those who don't agree with them
        How can anybody with a shred of morals and ethics actually support these Treasonous, NAZI Socialist Democrats?

          How preposterous.

          It is the right-wing that has been promoting "Second Amendment Remedies" for years. The right-wing, led by the NRA, literally argues that shooting government officials is OK if you feel they are tyrannical. They created this Frankenstein's monster and now it has turned on them. Shame!

                A wave of liberal Democrat inspired rage has marked the last 11 months since the rise and subsequent election of President Donald Trump.

                Antifa protestors clad in black masks shut down college campuses, destroy property and indiscriminately attack those they disagree with, whether women or the elderly. Meanwhile, CNN fires Kathy Griffin for taking photos with a bloody replica of the president’s decapitated head.

                Amid this backdrop, The Huffington Post publishes an article calling for the execution of Trump and “everyone assisting his agenda.”

                Then, shots ring out as a Democrat man gorged on media hysteria attempts to slaughter Republican congressmen while they practice for a charity baseball game.

                Ongoing Democrat violence seems endless.

          Gaby Giffords might take issue with your dumb list.

          By the way, Lincoln may have been a Republican, but that was the liberal northern party of the 1860s.

            The GOP was the party of actual freedom then and now. The "liberals" are and have always been the party that feels people are just too dumb to lead or govern themselves.

            They were for slavery then and government control now.

              The people who supported slavery were Southern and rural whites. What we would call the Trump "base" voter today.

                Actually,.....Those Southern Slavers were Democrats, the party of The KKK, Jim Crow Laws, Segregation, Lynch mobs, Bull Connor sicking dogs and firehoses on Civil Rights Marchers, the party of Eugenics and aborting minority babies, violent rioters shutting down free speech, assassinating Republican Politicians.
                The same Democrat party and agenda they have today, Progressives promoting Fascist Socialism and BIG Government Control.

                  Democratic Party and Republican Party switched during the Civil Rights Movement. Again, the "slavers" were the same Southern whites who are now all Republicans.

                  Come on, this is basic history. Try to keep up. It's embarrassing really. Don't let your ideology be such a blinder.

                    Your history teachers fed you a feces sandwich.
                    The Democrat Party and Republican Party NEVER switched during the Civil Rights Movement.

                    The GOP always voted in higher percentages for civil rights bills from the 1860s when Republican Abraham Lincoln overturned slavery to the 1960s when the Civil Rights Act was passed.

                    1865: 13th Amendment banning slavery passed by Republican president Abraham Lincoln with unanimous Republican support and most Democrats opposed.

                    1866: 14th Amendment giving due process and equal protection to all races passes with 100% of Democrats voting no in House and Senate.

                    1870: 15th Amendment giving all the right to vote regardless of race passes house with 98% Republican support and 97% Democrat opposition.

                    1875: Civil Rights Act of 1875 passed by Republican president U.S. Grant with 92% Republican support and 100% Democrat opposition.

                    1919: Republican House passes the amendment giving women the right to vote, 85% of Republicans vote yes to 54% of Democrats and 80% of Republicans in Senate vote yes but nearly half of Democrats vote no.

                    1924: Republican president Calvin Coolidge signs the law passed by Republican Congress giving Native Americans the right to vote.

                    1957: Republican president Dwight Eisenhower signs the Republican Party sponsored 1957 Civil Rights Act.

                    1964: Civil Rights Act ending segregation and voter restrictions is passed with 80% of Republicans in the House and 82% in the Senate voting yes, but only 63% of Democrats voting yes in the House and 69% in the Senate.
                    After passing the Civil Rights Act, Democratic president Lyndon B. Johnson brags "I'll have those n****** voting Democratic for the next 200 years."

                    1965: Voting Rights Act passed to remove racial voter discriminations against blacks and Hispanics with 82% of Republicans voting yes to 78% of Democrats in the House, and 94% of Republicans in the Senate to 73% of Democrats in the Senate.

                    1973: Only 2 of the 112 racist Democrats who opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1964 actually switched to the Republican Party, John Jarman and Strom Thurmond.

                    All the racist Democrats who had opposed the Civil Rights Act in the 1960s were the same ones who in the 1970s supported Roe v. Wade. They went straight from supporting segregation to supporting abortion.

                      Again, Republicans in all those statistics were Northern liberals.

                      Southern whites believed Johnson was one of them, and as you point out, he definitely had that DNA (from Texas after all). After the Civil Rights Act of '64 and the Voting Rights Act of '65 Southern whites accelerated a realignment to the Republican Party that had began during FDR. This is just true.

                      I'll give you Eisenhower, though I would point out, again, that Eisenhower Republicanism (1) would never win a presidential nomination in the Republican Party today, in fact it has been looked down on with disdain since Goldwater and (2) Eisenhower, who was a humble man, would be disgusted by Trump.

                      But, if you're saying that we should go back to Eisenhower's way of thinking -- taking the lead in global alliances, pulling back on the "military industrial complex" (his phrase), and investments in infrastructure like the national highway system, then I'm all in. (Well, minus Operation Wetback, the one part of Eisenhower Republicanism that the right still likes.) Eisenhower's not Trump though. Sorry.

                      Jesus, you don't even know the history of your own movement! Ha!

                      Go learn something. I would recommend reading Goldwater's The Conscience of a Conservative so you can learn how much the Republican Party changed in the 60s. Try Nixonland also.

    Why is Sanders is more Presidential?
    Because he didn't whine when he got primaried by Hillary and Debbie Wasserman Shultz's DNC machine?
    Instead he took the payola of a Clinton Foundation paid beach house in true Clintonista fashion.

    Must have softened after Hillary handed him his suicide note to sign.

This outrage is a sole outcome of the democrats spreading of hatred! Beheadings and mock assassinations of the president is now accepted? Humans should be treated equally, yet the democrats want to label everyone as either an inferior or emperor. The country is now divided thanks largely to the Obama reign.

    Sad how brain washed the alt reich is.
    You have had your heads filled with hosshi*.

    When in a cult, you lose all semblance of rational thought, you cannot see straight.

    I pity all you that can't see straight.

    The hate that feeds your cult , your sense of purpose is not of good, but you are being played for those who stop at nothing to enrich themselves more.

    I pity you all who choose evil, and subscribe to the ends justifies the means.

    The Republicans, who show their lack of morals, who only worship greed, who will kill millions all to enrich their masters, the ,01%

    Sad, immoral shells of humanity.

    You can change, accept the true message of Christ, or not, and believe those who pervert the lord's message for their own gain.

    It's your choice.
