Hodgkinson Soaked Up Liberal Fake New Like A Sponge
From "The Rush Limbaugh Show"

Look, I know people are able to arrive at opinions independently of stimulation or influence. I understand this. But I have been worried for quite a while about the cumulative effect or impact of this constant anti-Trump hysteria everywhere in mainstream media: New York Times, Washington Post, LA Times, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC. It’s hysteria. It’s lies.
I have been very concerned about what all of this is doing to the average, base Democrat voter. I have sensed them getting more and more fringe and imbalanced, and the evidence for it is everywhere in the things that they tweet. They openly promote violence, and advocate some of the most despicable things happening to their political enemies.
The hatred is raw, it is undiluted, it’s just savage. These are the mainstream of the Democrat base, and I don’t have any doubt that they are being radicalized. They’re being radicalized.
Since this program began, the American media has attempted to portray you people in this audience as being identical to the guy that shot up members of Congress today in Virginia. You know it as well as I do. You’ve heard it. You’ve listened to them say it. They’ve tried to characterize me and you as agents of hate and all of this. And it’s all rooted in nothing more than political, ideological differences. And it’s been going on for I don’t know how long.
Every time there has been a mass shooting or an act of terror, I guarantee you the first thing the media has done is they tried as hard as they could to find evidence that the perpetrator was a listener of this program and then of talk radio and then later a viewer of Fox News. They have been doing this since this program began, and they have yet to be able to find one example where that linkage has been established. Not one.
Conservatives don’t do these things, much as the media is waiting constantly for it to happen, it doesn’t. Things like this are perpetuated by genuinely insane, out-of-balance people or people like this guy Hodgkinson. And to have it categorized as something other than that has been something that’s common for 20 or 30 years.
And then this event happened today, and it’s something that I have honestly been worried was it going to happen because I don’t think that you can bombard people with this kind of hatred from the time they were in day care all the way up to kindergarten, and then middle school, high school. You get ’em into college, and they start watching their late night comedians, and all of this stuff is just… Some of it disguised as “comedy,” but it’s all coming from a foundation of anger and rage and hate.
Mainstream leftist progressives are being driven insane. This guy can repeat everything that he’s heard in the media verbatim, and it sounds like he is one of them. As evidence of how the media may have, along with Democrats, really ginned this guy up, back on March 22nd this Hodgkinson guy tweeted the following: “Trump is a traitor. He has destroyed our democracy. It’s time to destroy Trump and company.”
This guy’s Facebook page reads and looks exactly like your average CNN 10 person panel on Trump and Russia. So the shooter was acting on the fake news, the big lie, that Trump had colluded with Putin. This guy believed everything he heard. This guy soaked it up and believed everything and thought Trump should be sent packing along with the Republicans.
Here’s the thing about this — It is a hoax. It is a manufactured narrative that has been fed by anonymous leaks from nameless people with no evidence whatsoever. And it has been the primary news story going on six straight months, maybe seven, seven straight months uninterrupted, the number one story.
It’s greater than nothing here. There is no “there” there. There is no evidence. There isn’t even a scintilla. This is all a manufactured political theory to explain what to Democrats is inexplicable: Them losing an election to Donald Trump. And they have been hysterical for seven straight months now. It’s been the lead story. CNN cannot let go of it. The New York Times can’t. There isn’t a shred.
And yet if you look at this guy’s Facebook page and if you look on his Facebook page the various television, celebrities, hosts, personalities and shows that he watches, or watched, it is all this Russia story. Everything. There’s some climate change in there, obviously there would be. But it is astounding, folks. This guy was driven to pick up a gun and start shooting people because of the hatred he harbored.
Now, I have to ask a question. If this had not happened as it has happened for the last seven months, would this guy be as enraged, would he have been as he was? Well, we can’t know. With numerous assassination plays and television shows and so forth that have now permeated the popular culture, it is, as I say, I’ve run out of descriptive words.
Their heroes, their idols, their news leaders, their political leaders, this is how they keep them engaged, is with hate and the expectation that there’s gonna be a reward for all the hate. That the hate is going to be justified. That the hate is going to be rewarded because this evil guy, Trump, who stole what’s ours is gonna get his and he’s gonna go to jail and he might even get the death penalty and we’re gonna see to it that he gets the max punishment.
This is what they’re thinking. This is what they’re hoping. This is what they’re desperately desiring. And all of it, all of it is founded in nothing. And this guy, Hodgkinson, wherever you go to find evidence of his thinking and belief, it mirrors what you see in the Drive-By Media every day. As I said, this is what alarms me more than the fact that he’s a fringe lunatic. He is a lunatic, or was. But he’s mainstream.
This has been my point all along, that the Democrat Party mainstream are not really mainstream citizens or human beings. They have been radicalized. They have become defenders of militant Islamic terrorists, for example. The only enemy they have is us, folks, Republicans and conservatives. They’re willing to open the borders of this country to anybody who wants to come in. They don’t see any potential harm or problem whatsoever.
They mock and laugh at the idea that there is militant Islamic Jihad going on. But they are armed and ready to do battle with American Republicans and conservatives. And it is my contention they have been brought to this point. They have been educated with it. They have been propagandized. They have been indoctrinated. They have been inspired in the classroom and on television by what they consume throughout various forms of media.
I guess that’s the essence of why this is so troubling to me. Because it’s again something right out in the open for all of us to see and recognizance and admit, but I don’t know how many people actually will. Then you got the FBI out there saying, “Well, we’re not sure yet he was even targeting congressmen.” Oh. “And we’re still looking for a motive. We can’t be sure that targeting congressman was the objective.”
So something that happened right in front of our eyes and it’s patently clear what happened here, the guy signs on to this change.org resolution to impeach Trump. Over here is a giant Stack of nothing that the FBI firmly believes, is investigating and is gonna have an independent counsel even look further. It’s surreal. It’s like the Twilight Zone, in a way.
