A leftist terrorist from Belleville, Illinois opened fire on the GOP congressional baseball team during a practice wounding five. The terrorist John Hodgkinson volunteered for the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign and appears to have been radicalized to violent action by the months long hate spewed by the fake news media against elected US President Donald Trump and his agenda of summoning The Great Again.
This terrorist attack marks a substantial escalation of leftist violence in the current "cold" US civil war. Previously legislators from the GOP had merely been threatened with violence for their alignment with Donald Trump, but actual leftist violence was mostly restricted to attacks on their own institutions.
The terrorist's hometown of Belleville is a leftist stronghold and has been subject to a dramatic increase in violence over the past decade as guerillas from East Saint Louis have captured and settled substantial portions of the long blighted community. Hopefully the Trumpreich will consider all options for solving the leftist problem in Belleville as they formulate a response to this escalation in violence.
