When a Trans Person Murders Christian Schoolchildren

The legacy media have a preset narrative machine when it comes to mass shootings. That narrative machine takes into account the identities of the shooter and the victims, and then churns out an explanation for the shooting. White shooter, black victims: systemic racism. Black shooter, white victims: alienation caused by systemic racism. Muslim shooter, gay victims: Christian homophobia. 

On Monday, a self-identified 28-year-old trans man shot up a Christian school in Nashville, killing three children and three adults. The shooter left a manifesto, which police said reeked of “resentment.” And so this week, we are learning what pops up in the narrative machine when the inputs are “trans man” and “Christian schoolchildren.”

And here’s what pops up: America is systemically cruel to trans people, who apparently cannot be blamed for losing control and targeting small children at Christian schools. A hate crime by a trans-identifying person against a religious group is immediately transmuted into a generalized societal crime against the mass shooter herself. Thus, NBC contributor Benjamin Ryan tweeted, “NBC has ID’d the Nashville school shooter…Nashville is home to the Daily Wire, a hub of anti-trans activity by @MattWalshBlog, @BenShapiro and @MichaelJKnowles.” Newsweek tweeted a story titled, “Tennessee Republicans’ ban on drag shows criticized after mass shooting.” ABC News correspondent Terry Moran stated that the shooter “identified herself as a transgender person. The State of Tennessee earlier this month passed and the governor signed a bill that banned transgender medical care for minors…”

In the perverse world of Leftist victimology, this makes sense: If you are a member of a supposedly victimized group, you cannot be the victimizer; there must be another victimizer who has victimized you, turning you back into a victim.

But if we truly wish to prevent future acts of violence by unhinged lunatics, we ought to utilize a lens other than the lie of victimhood. Instead, we ought to consider the possibility that it is dangerous to promote the idea that mentally ill people ought to be celebrated as political groundbreakers by the legacy media for their symptoms, and simultaneously told that their suicidal ideations are caused by the intolerance of a broader society. According to a recent 2022 study, “Transgender and gender-diverse youth emerge as the group at the highest risk of support for violent radicalization.” Teaching trans-identifying people that their suffering is caused by a cruelly religious and patriarchal world, explaining that these forces put their very lives in danger – that, indeed, they are victims of a potential “genocide” – creates an incredibly dangerous ideological predicate for violent action.

But the legacy media, by and large, support that narrative. To admit the obvious – that men cannot be women and vice versa; that believing you were born “in the wrong body” is a mental disorder, not a weapon to be used in tearing down an unjust society; that high rates of depression and suicidal ideation among those who identify as transgender is not caused predominantly by societal intolerance but by the disorder itself – undermines the new civil rights crusade the Left has built, directed against traditional roles and institutions.

And so the new narrative must be maintained. A woman who shot to death six people including three children in cold blood must be recast as a victim of society. We must respect “his” pronouns even as we report “his” murders. We must blame those who truly cause pain in the world: those who disagree with the thought leaders in our legacy media, who know better than all the common sense, biology and tradition in the world.

The problem is the guns. In every other industrialized nation there are more gun restrictions or even bans and there are fewer shootings. Every shooting was done with a gun. The would be no shootings if there were no guns.

The solution is to ban, confiscate, and destroy all guns and ammo.

The US should be divided into 1000 regions. In each region 1000 officers should go door to door to confiscate all the guns and ammo. It would take a year to get rid of most of the guns and ammo.

This is America, not Nazi Germany. Disarming the law-abiding will never eliminate the problem of evil in society. You cannot legislate morality to those who have no conscience of right and wrong. Have we not learned from history?

He, she, they, trans..the pronoun for those that have carried out Murders IN A SCHOOL is COWARD. Let us all stop being misled. These people show up Armed against hundreds of CHILDREN and much fewer Unarmed adults. They aim, and pull the trigger TO KILL. This must STOP. Since when has it become OK to murder a child or adult COMPLETELY unrelated to your problem????????

America’s involvement in Vietnam ended 50 years ago today. By that time, a nation torn by civil rights and anti-war turmoil began an accelerated decline into what we have today, driven by leftists hell-bent on destroying America. The Legacy news media, academia, entertainment and assorted elites use every excuse, every tragic episode, to sow discord. The Nashville tragedy fits into this model. We are a half-century into the effort to unravel our nation and all for which it stands.

Ben you are so right in what you said. It is not about the three children that died at the hand of a transgender person. MSM doesn’t even mention it.
USA said the police are unclear about the gender of the shooter.
But they sure hate the victims that were shot. 3 – 9 year olds are becoming the perps.
More of the left circular logic. All in order to get rid of us. The Maga extremists as Brandon keeps comparing everything to.
The left is innocent for they are keeping democracy in America. Except that is a lie as you can see with the aftermath reaction of this shooting. It is disgusting what the left is doing.
Brandon had no words of comfort for these kids and adults killed. He laughed and talked about ice cream and then called for gun control. The guns didn’t kill these children and adults a confused irrational person that should have been in treatment did it. But the left takes every disaster into an opportunity to blame there political opponents. He forgets they are also Americans. He is president of all of them. He is creating such a rift not only by him but the puppeteers that pull his strings.

Broken people do broken things. A broken person is no different.

Trans people are broken, and need real mental health treatment. They uses to be indetifed and treated, somewhere along the line the Mental health people jumped the shark and washed their hands of the issue.

The left loves this choas it give them opportunity. The hell with the suffering of actual PEOPLE its winning that matters, afterall only the select are worthy anyway, the rest we are sending to camps or killing outright ( as they have always done)

Trans goofballs and the left deserve each other both are filled with broken, (trans) addled ( Karens) stupid ( Antifa) people

Too bad innocent normal people get hurt and killed by them.

But I’ve a feeling the worm is turning,

With the introduction of Sex Education in our public school system at early ages for children, the progressive left has caused severe mental disorders in our kids. They take these impressionable kids who are either male or female and confuse the hell out of them! Then when these kids grow up they are so emotionally confused over who or what they are that they suffer from depression and suicidal tendencies. As far as this mass shooting goes we should be looking at the crime itself and how it was handled. The perpetrator was a mentally disturbed individual who was depressed and didn’t want to live anymore. So they chose to commit this horrendous crime knowing that they would be killed by the police. It’s time to stop looking at the symptoms of this problem but rather the root cause which is progressive promotion of Sex Misinformation being taught in our public schools.

What difference does any of this make? These media people are total morons and of the devil just like the trans people. There is no excuse whatsoever at anytime for doing what this hellion did. It would not matter what group of so-called suppressed people this hellion came from. There is NO EXCUSE. Hell is obviously where she and anyone else that did anything like this is or is headed. And, by the way, I have not seen or heard one denouncement from any leftist group of this person and her heinous crime. This tells you all you need to know about lefties. If they cannot kill them in the womb they will get them later.

Violence is only going to keep escalating with this leftist insanity! I have gay friends that have told me that Sodom and Gomorrah were not destroyed because of sexuality in the those cities. They told me it was because of the violence in those cities. I reminded them that the sexual deviancy escalated into violence and that’s when God acted! The same is happening here. As the left keeps their pet groups wallowing in victimhood, then violence will continue as these victims think anyone who doesn’t affirm their victimhood deserves to be taken out! The Left is itching for another war and they need to be careful cuz none of this is going to end well! God have mercy on us and come help us out of this swamp of evil!

If one cannot look down while taking a shower and not be able to identify one’s sex, the problem is not what is between the legs but what is between the ears. No one should be surprised when this mental illness, which claims fully half of their number in suicides each year, should want to take others with them. My curiosity concerns what the narrative will be when a trans blows up a trans club – who would be blamed then?

I don’t care about anybody’s sexual preference or activities as long as it doesn’t involve children and no one is harmed. To each his own. I do not think we should be forced to not only accept but to also embrace these life styles as normal. Wokeism has been taken to idiotic extremes, time to start using common sense once again.

This is sad for both sides of this tragic story. Unnecessary death in a society that doesn’t know how to love themselves and realize that their existence is not based on the body and don’t we all do that? When people learn to come together in love we can make a difference. To teach from an early age into adulthood that love is the cure-all for all ailments and from this to know who you are from the internal spirit and not the body. This does not take away from the lives taken. I also know how it feels to lose someone unnecessarily it is painful. The zeal for what life could be in love, truth, support, kindness, caring, and being open-minded about the struggles that people don’t understand about themselves is what we fighting for. We need a spirit of forgiveness, change, service, laughter, and joy, and to listen to the fear and hurt that these people don’t understand about themselves and the worthiness of who we all can be. The divide created in media, angered social platforms, homes, schools, race, and sexuality is the crime we are creating within ourselves and against humanity. Wake up and love someone today and tell them they are worth being here now and hopefully into tomorrow!

Isn’t it amazing that the Marxists lie about EVERYTHING! They call their program “gender affirming.” How is it “affirming” to accept and promote the delusions of psychologically-damaged people? Could I “affirm” a girl with anorexia by buying her some laxatives since she “feels” fat? Or buy a “cutter” some razor blades?
The LEFT is anti-science, anti-medicine, anti-history, and anti-God.

Apparently the shooter bought his guns at licensed gun dealers legally. When guns are sold that way the buyer must fill out a form 4473. This form is then used to call for government approval. I suggest that a line item be added to that form. A question: Has the buyer undergone or self-identified as a sex other than his/her birth gender? If answered “No’ Nothing further is done. If the buyer checks “Yes” he/she will have to provide a licensed Psycologist or Psychiatrist letter that the buyer is of sound mind.

Obviously, persons who think they can change their sex are crazy by definition. Of course criminals will always find a way to get a gun.

There is no such thing as a “trans” person . Human beings are either male or female . There are only two genders . Anyone calling themselves a “trans” person is confused and may have mental problems . Anyone enabling this nonsense among minors is guilty of child abuse .

What about this bastard was a man. It was a sick woman with mental issues. I wonder what the FBI knew when they did their NICS check on her. Let us know what the FBI had to work with. Of course the FBI’s job of taking away our guns would be a lot easier if they spread lies about our uses of firearms.

Among the many sad things about all this is that the democrat/globalists are enjoying it. The demos are laughing. Any group that loves abortion as much as they do surely doesn’t care about 9 year-old children getting murdered. The bonus for them is that they were Christians.

First, thank you for not naming the shooter-“they” should get no recognition.
“They” shot and killed both males and females, kids and adults, black and white. So, who were they angry with?
And, had they lived, which prison are they condemned to, men’s or women’s? Or, do we need transgender prisons now as well?

Great article. It’s a very difficult problem, dealing with mentally ill people when the sanitariums no longer exist. I guess they were shut down because people weren’t always treated well by staff. Now many are homeless and live on the streets. Its a bigger problem than the human race can handle.

I believe that transgender is a mental illness. There are evil people that take advantage of this mental illness to push their own agendas. Part of the grooming process. Which in turn is destroying Americas basic values. Especially with forced on young children in schools.

All of the comments written below reflect what’s already happened. We are all furious over this and need to pray for the families affected. But our nation’s leaders need to move immediately to the here and now, not just what happened a few days ago. Negotiating “across the aisle” is a waste of time. Consideration should take place swiftly to enact, by law, a full time armed security individual on-site at schools in the nation. Read about how a volunteer saved many lives at the New Life Church shooting incident (2007) in Colorado Springs, CO (see: sheepdogsecurity.net ). Schools, churches and other places of mass gathering are simply hunting reserves for psychopathic murderers. And no, a new gun regulation will not inhibit such an individual, from doing once again, what we just experienced. Until we have some security at schools to interdict, using the same like strengths against someone intent on malicious killing, these tragedies will continue. The state of Ohio has an armed school teacher program already in-place. Why is such not mandatory across the nation and paid for by the federal government? Within a few months, face masks were made mandatory.

I am sick and tired of hearing about our children being shot at school! It is ridiculous that our government seems to have a blind eye regarding this. BAN THE SALE OF ALL ASSAULT RIFLES NOW!
With regard to trans this and trans that, it’s ridiculous. All one needs to do is look down and they’ll know whether they’re a he or a she. Good Lord this world is so messed up.

We need to increase the penalties for murder and institute a waiting period for those who wish to commit murder. Increased background checks on all homicidal individuals and a ban on all assault killers and no murder zones at all schools replete with door stickers stating such. That should stop these crimes.

She just proved that transgenders have a mental problem. How could 9 yr olds possibly be a threat to her? She was mentally deranged …which most all of them that claim to be other than what they’re born as….are. And schools should NOT be teaching that kind of crap to our children, that it is natural, etc. Todays schools are not teaching what kids need to learn but their own ignorant agenda. So glad my grandchildren are mostly home schooled.

What we are witnessing is the gradual corruption of the natural order by those who are in rebellion against God and His creation. It has been ongoing ever since Satan rebelled against God and sought to usurp the position God assigned to human-kind, that we were made in the image and likeness of God and were on a level ABOVE the angels. Satan has been attempting to corrupt the natural order and it is growing into a crescendo in these last days. Humans have been given a free will to decide for themselves how they wish to live. However, that does not give them the right to impose their wills on others. Neither can one expect another to read their minds to know innately how they perceive themselves. If I see a dude with long hair, I do not know if HE wants to be recognized as a woman, a rock-star, a hippie, or lately as a “furrie” animal of some sort. If I politely refer to him as “Sir” and he acts like I just beat him with a baseball bat, I have no idea why.

It used to be what you did in the privacy of your own bedroom between consenting ADULTS was none of my business. However, now people want their sexual acts to be not only tolerated, but affirmed, and even celebrated. They also want access to our children so they can attempt to warp their minds, without interference from their parents, the law, religion, or the government. Certain things in life happen because of the nature of being born. You might be born Black, White, Oriental, Latino, etc. At birth, you are either born equipped as either a male or a female. It is completely wrong for anyone to be mistreated in any way over the nature of their birth. Behavior of that individual, however, is a completely different thing. Behaviors are chosen by the individual and how you behave can and does affect others and therefore in many instances certain behaviors need to be regulated. One cannot be allowed to go around killing others because they did not know your chosen pronouns. You also do not have the right to access to children simply because you choose to behave with inappropriate sexual behaviors in their presence. The children are not old enough to be able to make life altering decisions, just like they are not mature enough to vote for the leaders of the country. Of course, these days it appears that some feel the adults do not have the right to vote for who they want to run the country, but that is a discussion for another time.

Allow teachers to arm themselves, bolster school security, take away the gun free zone law, these cowards know no one has a gun at school unless they have armed security there, and have nothing to fear until the Police show up. We know Transgenderism is a mental disorder, they should have to pass a psychiatric screening to purchase a gun. Why isn’t this being called a hate crime? It clearly is. Why haven’t we seen her manifesto that describes why she did it? My guess is it would reveal she hates Christians, because they won’t go along with her fantasy of changing her gender.
