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.

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.

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