House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is once again pointing the finger at the Democratic Party’s favorite boogeyman for mass shootings, particularly those involving the LGBT community, saying that the whole thing is the fault of “MAGA Republicans.” Yes, that’s right, folks, if you like or support former President Donald Trump and the America first values and policies he promotes, this tragedy, this bloodshed, it’s all on you.
According to TheBlaze, the Speaker put out a statement on Sunday where she condemned the “despicable” attack at Club Q, which she then pointed out fell “on the eve of Transgender Day of Remembrance.”
“The attack on Club Q, which fell on the eve of Transgender Day of Remembrance, is despicable — further shattering the sense of safety of LGBTQ Americans across the country,” she stated.
“Then, in a second statement commemorating Transgender Day of Remembrance, Pelosi took a direct shot at ‘MAGA Republicans,’ blaming them for violence — like the attack on Club Q — against LGBT people,” the report said.
“That fight remains more urgent than ever, as right-wing extremists target transgender Americans’ most fundamental rights and freedoms,” Pelosi continued. “Whether spouting dangerous rhetoric from cable news desks or openly bullying schoolchildren from the halls of power, MAGA Republicans are cruelly undermining the safety and well-being of our transgender community.”
Other Democrats in Congress, along with those in various media outlets and other organizations, also alleged that individuals who are not on board with the LGBT agenda are responsible for the attack. Because if you don’t affirm the homosexual lifestyle as normative, well, you’re the bad guy, a dirty bigot who is basically telling mentally unstable crackpots to go get guns and murder people. All that by saying the LGBT agenda and lifestyle are things you disagree with.
Denver Democrats said, “There’s a clear link between these kinds of attacks and extremists’ blatantly false and hateful rhetoric about the LGBTQ community. We’ve seen an onslaught of anti-LGBTQ bills — nearly 300 just this year — which are rooted in archaic and ugly ideologies that only seek to sow more division and traumatize a group of people who simply want the same rights as everyone else.”
“After Trump elevated anti-immigrant & anti-Latino rhetoric, we had the deadliest anti-Latino shooting in modern history. After anti-Asian hate w/COVID, Atlanta. Tree of life. Emanuel AME. Buffalo. And now after an anti-LGBT+ campaign, Colorado Springs. Connect the dots, @GOP,” everyone’s least favorite Democratic socialist, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, stated.
All of this despite the fact law enforcement officials who are investigating the matter have yet to determine the actual motivation for the shooting. There’s been no determination of this being a hate crime, but that hasn’t stopped the left from jumping to that conclusion right off the bat. Why wait for facts when you can capitalize off a tragedy right off the bat and win some brownie points with your base?
Regardless, the person who did this heinous act is evil to the core. No matter how much I might disagree with a homosexual lifestyle, there’s no way I’d ever advocate hurting someone just because they are gay. That’s absurd and lacks human decency.
