In light of yesterday’s attempted assassination of a Republican congressman by a Trump-hating Bernie Sanders supporter, Huffington Post writer Jesse Benn seems to be calling for the overthrow of the United States government.

“For violent resistance to work it’d need to be organized,” the left-wing fascist tweeted in a friendly critique of the political activism of would-be mass murderer James T. Hodgkinson. “Individual acts can be understandable, but likely counterproductive/ineffective.”

Registered Democrat Hodgkinson, 66, opened fired on Republicans practicing in the Washington suburbs yesterday for a charity baseball game today. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), a U.S. Capitol Police officer who was part of his security detail, and two others were shot by Hodgkinson after he confirmed the baseball players were Republicans. Scalise remains in critical condition at a local hospital.

“There’s an inherent value in forestalling Trump’s normalization,” Benn wrote previously. “Violent resistance accomplishes this,” he wrote in piece titled, “Sorry Liberals, a Violent Response to Trump Is as Logical as Any.”

On Benn’s Twitter page he describes himself as a “Member of the Tribe. Member of the intolerant Left. No war but class war. Ⓐ☭[.]” A grab of the top of the page follows:

Now that the “Resistance” movement Benn ardently supports is attempting to kill Republican lawmakers, it’s about time the FBI and the Secret Service pay Benn a visit.
