Washington Post is announcing his name...
And that he is a building inspector...

A Facebook search shows this guy with the same name and with an inspection company..
It would appear he is a democratic socialist(aka communist)

Well, If this is him then we know his motives...

Good find...let's wait and see.

CNBC confirming the name too.

WHAT?!

His name got leaked to WaPo?!!

This stinks.... worse than feces.

The police chief and FBI agent JUST SAID at the press conference that they would NOT comment on the identity of the shooter.

I happened to be on the Washington post site when they announced it so I was able to quickly search and get a screenshot from Facebook before it disappears…

Which it undoubtedly will...

Just woke up to this.

The FBI is being extremely close-lipped at this point. Typically that means they are taking it extremely seriously.

This is, so far, one lone lunatic, from reports a political loon on the left, but still one lone loon. It's not a political civil war... yet. But this thread alone convinces me that such is building. A US Congressman was shot. Yet we have people almost applauding the shooter because he seemingly targeted one party over another. We have people talking about skin color. We have people indicating Scalise deserved it because he was against further gun control. What?

Really?

Some people should be ashamed of themselves, but sadly they won't be. The anger in this country is growing unabated. It's not over gun control, skin color, Trump, Republicans... those are excuses. Hate needs no excuses to exist.

I will withhold judgement on the motives of the shooter and potential implications until more information comes to light. Another poster (Grambler?) was absolutely correct when he referenced Dylan Roof as not representative of the right, and thus this loon is not automatically representative of the left.

My prayers to Representative Scalise, the security detail, the other Congressmen, and all their families. My hopes that whoever did this be punished to the full extent of the law, including, if applicable, capitol punushment.

No, it's being reported now by CNBC too...

Hodgkinson, 66, owns a home inspection business in his home state, the newspaper reports.

I love how this became the MSM media's fault almost instantly.


That's because the MSM rhetoric has been so hate-filled, dishonest, and vile that it's the first thing that comes to mind. As I said earlier, the left-wing media along with celebrities and politicians have spewed so many lies, hyperbole, and violent repulsive images in plays, pictures, stand-up routines, etc., they HAVE taken it to THAT level.

I have NEVER seen it as bad as it is now....relentless, hateful, untruthful, and calculated. Using words like "the resistance" in the manner the left has been using it (even Hillary said that she was joining "the resistance"!) is a dog whistle for this violence, imo.

There are crazies that believe their s#it and get all stirred up with hate and react to it.

So, yes. MSM rhetoric and hateful lies coming from the left daily and nightly is the first thing that comes to mind.


So I guess you were born in the last year or so after the election and don't recall all the nonsense the right wing media would spew for the previous 8 years.

But that's not even the point. The point is, it's ok to say we don't know why this guy did what he did until it's revealed. And he's alive so it will be soon enough.

I don't watch fox, so I will ask you,
did they also rip into trump when he insulted the london mayor and used the terrorist attack there to bring up his muslim travel ban????
if one is wrong, so isn't the other ya know!!!

just like if the rhetoric from msn and cnn played a part in this attack, then most surely all the rhetoric from those planned parenthood tapes and such must have played a part in all those death threats, bomb threats, and yes, even the attack on at least one planned parenthood clinic, right???

That doesn't mean a damn thing. Just because he's alive doesn't mean we will hear a word from him about his motives.

No way the police verified identity and leaked this fast. I wonder if someone interviewed knew him and mentioned the name to a reporter?

That's what I'm saying, and the fact that it's WaPo makes it more suspect in my eyes.
