Things have taken a turn for the worse in the case of ambushed congressman Steve Scalise this week, as the public servant was readmitted to the intensive care unit.
Scalise and others were the victim of a brazen attack by a radicalized liberal on June 14th of this year. The assailant, James T. Hodgkinson, had previously worked with the Bernie Sanders campaign and was an active member of several deplorable social media groups that glamorized the “hunting” of republicans. As the culture surrounding the left has turned from ineffective to immensely violent, Hodgkinson fell victim to the normalization of political violence being perpetuated by the likes of CNN’s Kathy Griffin, and rapper Snoop Dogg. These celebrities, who have openly mimicked the assassination of President Donald Trump using their considerable visibility, have damaged the leftist American psyche, creating a situation more akin to the radical Islamic violence of ISIS than the day-to-day dissonance of U.S. politics. Hodgkinson took their violent imagery to heart, firing upon a baseball field full of GOP congressman in hopes of instigating the New Civil War.
Steve Scalise, a congressman from Louisiana, was struck by the domestic terrorist’s bullets, and was gravely injured. Now, after more than 3 weeks already recovering, an infection has caused a dangerous turn for Scalise as he has been admitted back into intensive care.
“Doctors at the hospital where House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., has been recovering from a gunshot wound downgraded his condition from ‘fair’ to ‘serious’ Wednesday after he contracted an infection.
“MedStar Washington Hospital Center said Scalise had been re-admitted to the intensive care unit. The hospital added that it would provide another update sometime Thursday.
“Sources told Fox News that doctors had anticipated that Scalise would suffer an infection related to the shooting. Sources close to the congressman indicated that they had been told from the start that the Louisianan’s recovery would have ups and downs.
“The shooting in the Virginia suburb that critically wounded Scalise and injured several others has forced members of Congress to examine their security arrangements to determine if they are sufficient.”
Scalise, who was the most injured man on the field that day, has become the de facto symbol of the left-right New Civil War that the liberals are aiming to instigate.
With the American political left having become so dangerously enraged, the nation itself has been on high alert. Just last week, New Jersey became the first state to designate leftist group “antifa” as a terror organization, allowing authorities in that state the resources to better combat the organization’s tactics.
