In the wake of a mass shooting during a Republican Congressional baseball game by a disgruntled Democrat who referred to President Donald Trump as a “traitor,” one cannot help but recall all of the calls for violence, or glorification of violence, towards the right coming from the left.
Congressman Steve Scalise and five others were shot by James Hodgkinson, a supporter of Bernie Sanders who had volunteered with his campaign. The shooter’s Facebook page features posts such as “Trump is Guilty & Should Go to Prison for Treason,” along with a link from a website called “ImpeachDJTNow,” and a slew of other liberal media hysterics.
Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana, a true friend and patriot, was badly injured but will fully recover. Our thoughts and prayers are with him.

The gunman had reportedly asked Representative Jeff Duncan if the people at the game were Republicans or Democrats before he began shooting.
The shocking event has left many wondering how things have escalated to the point of terror attacks at ball games, so here is a list of 10 notable times that Democrats have glorified violence against Republicans since the election.
Hillary Clinton’s former running mate Tim Kaine called for Democrats to “fight in the streets against Trump.”
Kaine, whose son was recently charged for his involvement in a riot during a pro-Trump event, had appeared on MSNBC in January, calling for members of his party to “fight in Congress, fight in the courts, fight in the streets, fight online, fight at the ballot box.”
Kaine’s 24-year-old son Linwood Kaine was charged in May with “fleeing police on foot, concealing his identity in a public place, and obstructing legal process,” after a masked group he was with threw smoke bombs into a pro-Trump rally in Minneapolis, Minnesota in March.
The New York Times is currently sponsoring a play that features the assassination of President Trump.
As we previously reported, the “Shakespeare in the Park” production is a contemporary update on the original, does not refer to the president by name — but their Caesar character holds a striking resemblance to Trump and even has a wife with a Slavic accent similar to the First Lady.
During the play, the Caesar character is shown fully nude, as well as tweeting from a bathtub before being stabbed to death by female and minority senators as an American Flag hangs beside them.
BuzzFeed writers wish for Trump’s assassination in private office chats leaked to Big League Politics.
In screenshots exclusively provided to Big League Politics by former BuzzFeed employee Tim “Treadstone” Gionet, better known as Baked Alaska, the website’s Director of Social Media Maycie Thornton wishes for Trump’s assassination as co-workers laughed and cheered her on.
“Maybe someone will assassinate him,” said Thornton, gaining big laughs from her coworkers.
“This was not the first time BuzzFeed employees talked openly about wishing President Trump would get assassinated, they hated conservatives so much they even held an office party when Justice Scalia died. It was a toxic environment and you were declared a heretic if you were a Trump supporter, bottom line,” Treadstone told Big League.
Former CNN host Kathy Griffin’s infamous ISIS-inspired photo holding Trump’s decapitated head.
In May, the internet exploded after “comedian” Kathy Griffin released an ISIS-style portrait and video of herself holding the decapitated head of President Trump. The z-list star then played victim by holding a tearful press conference whining about how she was being bullied by “old white men” after her gigs began getting cancelled through a boycott effort.

Former U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch posted a video urging people to march, bleed, and die in the streets.
In February, Obama’s attorney general posted a video in which she urged people to march and bleed in the streets to resist the president and his administration.
“It has been people, individuals who have banded together, ordinary people who simply saw what needed to be done and came together and supported those ideals who have made the difference. They’ve marched, they’ve bled and yes, some of them died. This is hard. Every good thing is. We have done this before. We can do this again,” Lynch stated.
“Comedian” and DNC Speaker Sarah Silverman called for a military coup against President Trump.
In a tweet using all-caps, posted to her 11 million followers, Sarah Silverman called for a military coup against the president as a violent rally was underway in Berkeley in February.
“Once the military is w us fascists get overthrown. Mad king & his handlers go bye bye,” the deranged Democrat wrote, with four heart emojis.
WAKE UP & JOIN THE RESISTANCE. ONCE THE MILITARY IS W US FASCISTS GET OVERTHROWN. MAD KING & HIS HANDLERS GO BYE BYE❤❤❤❤ https://t.co/Y2WZbL012A

Madonna tells women’s march that she fantasizes about blowing up the White House.
During the unhinged aging pop star’s vulgar speech at the rally, she demanded that this was “the beginning of a revolution,” and called Trump’s win a “horrific moment of darkness.”
“Yes, I’m angry. Yes, I am outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House,” Madonna said. “But I know that this won’t change anything. We cannot fall into despair.”
Snoop Dogg references assassinating President Trump in music video.
In the BADBADNOTGOOD video for the remix of “Lavender,” released in March, the hip-hop star focuses on police brutality in a world full of clowns. In the controversial scene, the 45-year-old rapper is seen holding a toy gun to the head of a clown dressed as President Trump. A “bang” flash pops up after the rapper pulls the trigger.
“Can you imagine what the outcry would be if @SnoopDogg, failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama? Jail time!” Trump tweeted in response.

Rapper threatens to pimp Melania Trump and “make her work for us.”
After the back and forth exchange between Trump and Snoop Dogg, rapper and actor Little Bow Wow, also known as Shad Moss, jumped into the mix.
Following Trump’s comment that Snoop Dogg would be in jail if he had mock assassinated Obama in a video, Moss tweeted for Trump to “shut your punk ass,” and adding the threat to kidnap and sell the First Lady into sexual slavery.

“Ayo DonaldTrump shut your punk ass up talking sh-t about my uncle Snoop Dogg before we pimp your wife and make her work for us,” Moss wrote.
Anti-Trump protester calls for violence against Trump supporters on CNN.
During a protest in Los Angeles in the days after the election, an unhinged anti-Trump demonstrator asserted that “people have to die,” over the election results.
“If we don’t fight, then who will fight for us? People had to die for your freedom where we’re at today. We can’t just do rallies, we have to fight back. There will be casualties on both sides. There will be because people have to die to make a change in this world. Trump, enough with your racism. Stop splitting families. Don’t split my family.”
The reporter on the scene continued to paint the violent woman as a victim, asking her about her concerns over the Trump administration splitting up her family.
Right wing speakers and those who wish to see them also have to endure violent riots and threats to their safety simply to gather in cities from Boston to Berkeley. Given the extremism being promoted by mainstream Democrats, it would be a miracle if we do not see more terrorism continue to rise from the left.
