Congressman calls for restriction of “social media” following baseball game shooting

Rep. Rodney Davis blames 'political rhetorical terrorism' for Virginia shooting

ALEXANDRIA, Virginia (INTELLIHUB) — Congressman Rodney Davis (IL-R) told Fox News that “political rhetorical terrorism” may be to blame for the “senseless shooting” of several top-level U.S. officials and their aides during a baseball practice session at Simpson Field Wednesday morning.

“This political rhetoric and political discourse that has led to hate, has led to gunfire,” the congressman from Illinois said. “I never thought I’d go to baseball practice for charity and have to dodge bullets. This has got to stop and it has got to stop today […] We got to ratchet down the rhetoric that we’ve seen, not only in the social media but in the media, in the 24 hour news cycle.
