Defiant Congressmen Returns After Radical Left’s Assassination Attempt

Many of us never believed that we would live to see the day that liberals would take up arms against their fellow Americans, yet that is exactly what has occurred.

According to groups such as Antifa, the radical left is preparing for a New Civil War in America, with shades of Nazi-esque neo-Fascism at the forefront of their egregious ethos.  Antifa in particular has been working overtime to squash the American conservative viewpoint through the use of violence and intimidation, all while attempting to subvert the First Amendment.

One of the more dastardly attacks on the right wing of American politics took place earlier this year as Bernie Sanders campaign worker James T. Hodgkinson opened fire on a baseball field full of GOP congressmen who were practicing for a charity tournament.  Hodgkinson’s ambush was thankfully devoid of fatalities, but the crazed gunman was nearly successful in assassinating Louisiana representative Steve Scalise before being shot and killed by Capitol Police.

After a lengthy recovery, Stave Scalise today returns to Washington D.C.

“To hugs and a roaring bipartisan standing ovation, House Republican Whip Steve Scalise returned to the House on Thursday, more than three months after a baseball practice shooting left him fighting for his life.

“’You have no idea how great this feels to be back here at work in the people’s House,’ the 51-year old Louisianan said to a chamber packed with lawmakers, including senators who welcome him back.

“Scalise hobbled into the chamber on crutches, smiling broadly and blowing kisses in his first public appearance since the June 14 shooting. In an extraordinary gesture, Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., presided and ordered members to sit in their chairs to listen to Scalise’s remarks.

“’Our prayers have been answered,’ Ryan said.”

Scalise’s return comes at a time in which a bitter rivalry is emerging among the left and the right in Congress, with a number of “resistance” figures vying to completely delegitimize the President.

Seeing the normally cold-hearted Congress so emphatically support one of their own, no matter his political orientation, was a sight for sore eyes for many Americans who are furious with the current partisan infighting being perpetuated by the liberalism running rampant in D.C.
