Republican Senator Josh Hawley, regarded as one of the leading populist voices in the Senate, has demanded that FBI Director Christopher Wray and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas open a federal hate crime investigation into the school shooting at the Covenant Christian school in Tennessee. 

For those catching up, yesterday a transgender shooter murdered six people – including three children – at the Christian elementary school. 

Police say the terrorist attack was carefully plotted by the shooter, alleged to be the now-deceased Audrey Hale, who was formerly a student at the school.

Hawley wants the government to treat the shooting as a deliberate attack on Christians.

Christians Targeted

In his demand, Hawley notes that the attack was targeted specifically against the Christian school and its occupants, and notes that the federal hate crime statute reads, emphasis added: 

Whoever, whether or not acting under color of law, in any circumstance described in subparagraph (B) or paragraph (3), willfully causes bodily injury to any person or, through the use of fire, a firearm, a dangerous weapon, or an explosive or incendiary device, attempts to cause bodily injury to any person, because of the actual or perceived religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability of any person—

So far it seems pretty clear, right? 


The left-wing media and far left are doing everything they can to distract from the fact that the shooter was transgender and deliberately killing Christians. 

Take a look at this, from Reuters:

“Former Christian school student”? 

I want all readers to remember, this isn’t an accident. 

Just take a look at California Governor Gavin Newsom, whose state has seen several horrific shootings take place this year despite having some of the nation’s worst gun laws: 

If it weren’t for the alternative media, Americans would wander around in a daze believing a Christian student and the NRA were responsible. 

That’s exactly what they want.

‘Trans Day of Vengeance’ and ‘Genocide’

But this doesn’t just happen by magic. It takes a concerted effort to bring a narrative to reality. Enter ‘trans genocide.’

Since parents began pushing back on extreme gender ideology and hypersexual “drag shows” in schools , the left has accused anyone to the right of Josef Stalin to be engaging in “genocide” of transgender people. 

Now just stop and think for a second. Put yourself in the shoes of someone who is apt to accept that kind of narrative. 

If millions of Americans are brainwashed Christian thugs who are out to “genocide” transgender people, well, then violence would be the only rational response. 

What other possible response could one have to genocide? 

Social media is positively filled with radical leftists pushing this false “genocide” rhetoric. Here are just a few examples:

Just do a quick search yourself. 

The problem, of course, is that there’s no apparatus or group systematically murdering transgender people. But that doesn’t stop the kooks from lying about it. It doesn’t stop the politicians from promoting the lie. It doesn’t stop the media from spreading the lie. 

On the other hand, there’s plenty of evidence that the shooting in Nashville was totally predictable. 

As journalist Andy Ngo covered, the far-left has been promoting the “Trans Day of Vengeance” to “stop trans genocide.”

Insanity All Around

It’s a sad state of affairs that I’ve fielded numerous predictions about the media’s behavior, even from normal people. 

And it’s not really any wonder. Look at the lengths these crooks go to in order to push their narrative: 

And there’s the old standby – it’s actually the inanimate object’s fault that a terrorist deliberately murdered Christian children, you see, and the evil Republicans are also to blame:

One last thing before I go – I’m not even sure that the shooter used what the media and Democrats falsely portray as “an assault weapon.” 

Looking at the video of the shooter, I’m pretty sure that’s a Hi-Point.

They count on the ignorance of the American people in order to push these agendas. 

Don’t let them do it.
