Republicans Targeted For Assassination

 

 

By Deborah Baber Savalla

What were you doing yesterday morning, June 14, 2017 at 6:30 AM? Were you at the gym? Were you taking a morning walk? Are you a KNOWN REPUBLICAN? Were you attending an early morning baseball practice in preparation for a game that has been played for over 100 years! No? Well that is exactly what REPUBLICAN House Majority Whip Steve Scalise. Let this next statement sink in: The third-ranking REPUBLICAN in the House, Steve Scalise, was targeted for assassination and shot for being a REPUBLICAN.

There is ample evidence in pictures and from the pages of the assailant James T. Hodgkinson’s Facebook page that the would-be murderer is NOT a Republican. Nor does the gunman seem to be simply a severely-mentally ill man. All indications are that this man was a radical leftist whose uncontrollable rage at REPUBLICANS was fueled by an election failure to stop then-candidate Donald Trump from winning in a landslide victory. Unable to delegitimize and stop the President from implementing his America First Agenda, Hodgkinson appears to have been further inflamed to the point of murder.

Congressman Scalise

REPUBLICAN Congressman Scalise remains in critical condition. There is further evidence that the assassination attempt on REPUBLICANS is Leftist-Democrat inspired fury. It is found in their near wholesale silence and absence of condemnation for this act. Compare the Leftist-Democrat reactions to yesterday’s assassination attempt of REPUBLICANS to the response they had to the shootings of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, and Gabby Giffords to name but a few. Where is the outrage and damnation for this murderous, brutal assassination attempt from Democrat/Leftists, or anti-Trumper for that matter? Three days ago on the one-year anniversary of the killing of 49 innocents at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, this group of people exhibited plenty of emotional outpouring in Facebook posts and in Main Stream Media headlines. But there has been nary a peep about this attack on REPUBLICANS. Why is that? Their silence and subsequent refusal to publicly condemn this act makes them complicit in it.

President Trump is doing what he can to keep our nation safe against the dark forces of extremists in all their forms both abroad and at home including those forces in the (MSM) Main Stream Media. It also includes performers like Kathy Griffin holding aloft a severed President Trump head, and publically-supported arts such as the New York Public Theater production of Julius Caesar whose murdered character is made up to look like our President. Their acts encourage and justify violence which stirs this murderous rage! Do not be complacent. Instead, I implore you to contact our House and Senate leadership and to also contact your specific representatives in our nation’s capital. Let them know what you think. Better still, use the proposal that follows to convey your message.

A man I know only through a private, shared group on Facebook has done the “heavy-lifting” of putting a specific request in writing. Please feel free to use this in its entirety or as the basis for your own outreach to the leadership of the REPUBLICAN Congress and to your own elected officials in the Houser and the Senate. Do this for yourself, your loved ones, and all our fellow citizens regardless of political affiliation. We deserve far better than what we have been getting from our elected representatives.

Dear Honorable (Majority Leader/Speaker):

Regarding security for our elected officials, we don’t have enough law-abiding citizens allowed to carry concealed weapons. Everyone admits it would have been a massacre yesterday if two good guys (the Capitol Hill Police) didn’t have guns. I pray for Rep. Scalise and the other victims.

The discussion of security for all 435 Representatives and for 100 Senators has come up again and most agree that it is impractical and too expensive. Plus many of our elected officials say they would decline security if offered.

My proposal is to allow every elected official to obtain a US Government-issued concealed carry permit if desired. The special CCW would automatically override all state and local gun restrictions.

Newly elected officials would be required to go through rigorous gun safety and firearm proficiency training before issuance. That would turn the soft targets of yesterday’s murderous violence into hard targets.

Studies have shown time and time again that the best way to stop a bad guy with a gun is to have a good guy with a gun. How will you respond to yesterday’s events?

Respectfully submitted,

Anthony K (Ken) Girdley
