How The Left Judges A Protest

Written by  TFPP Writer

Robert Gehl reports The Washington Post veered off into fantasyland Saturday when it tried to connect the leftist nutjob who shot up a Congressional baseball practice with right-wing radio.

James Hodgkinson – the man who left Rep.

Steve Scalise hospitalized after trying to assassinate as many Republican lawmakers as possible at an Alexandria, Virginia ball field – hailed from Belleville, Illinois.

Hodgkinson’s political motives were clear and well-documented. He had a “kill list” of Republican lawmakers, he loved Bernie Sanders and Rachel Maddow and hated Donald Trump. He was a hard-core leftist.

So apparently, The Washington Post thought that they would travel to Hodgkinson’s home town – Belleville, Illinois, just outside St. Louis – to see what inspired him. And here’s what they came up with:

Right-wing hate radio.

I don’t mean “right-wing radio” like Sean Hannity or Rush Limbaugh. As The Post describes it, Bob Romanik routinely uses the “n-word” on air and blames black people for all of America’s problems.

Yeah – the guy’s a racist.

So what does this nitwit have to do with Hodgkinson and his left-wing attack outside the Nation’s Capital? Nothing. Well … unless you read WaPo.

They made the assumption – pure conjecture – that this left-wing zealot probably listened to right-wing hate radio.
