It Sure Looks Like the Nashville Shooting Was a Far-Left Terrorist Attack

The more we learn about the school shooting in Nashville, TN, the worse things look.

The shooter has now been identified as a 28-year-old transgender man (i.e. actually a woman) who goes by “he/him” pronouns. Further, law enforcement has revealed she wrote a manifesto that they have recovered.


More details are coming out, and this sure looks like it was a far-left terrorist attack. The transgender shooter shot up a Christian school just a few weeks after Tennessee passed a bill banning child mutilation under the guise of “gender-affirming care.” To further make the case, Luke Rosiak is now reporting that left-wing activist groups had been calling for a “Trans Day of Vengeance.”

That’s way too many dots being connected to ignore at this point. This was pretty clearly an act of domestic terrorism carried out by someone who was motivated by hatred, having listened to the calls of Democrat activists to commit violence.

If the tables were turned and we were talking about a right-wing domestic terrorist attack, that would be at the top of every newscast. Instead, all the press outlets are currently obsessing over the fact that an AR-15 reportedly was used in the shooting because it allows them to ignore the political motivations behind the attack.


A few things need to happen next. For one, the manifesto needs to be released. When a shooter can be blamed on the right, their deranged writings are always put out for public consumption. If that doesn’t happen here, then it will be obvious that law enforcement is acting politically. Secondly, there needs to be a serious reckoning about far-left urgings to commit violence in the name of LGBT ideology. It has become too pervasive to ignore at this point, and now children are dead as a result.

Any media outlet that continues to ignore what actually happened here is making itself complicit in the violence. Those outlets have had no problem critiquing right-wing rhetoric in the past and even blaming mainstream Republicans for shootings. It’s time to be consistent and call Democrats out for claiming that not allowing children to be castrated is genocidal. When you use language like that, what do they think is going to happen?

Of course, that’s not going to happen. The press will instead continue to focus on the type of gun used because that’s their go-to when a shooter doesn’t check the boxes they desire. It’s cynical and ghoulish. Still, the facts here are telling a tale that can’t be ignored. Transgender militarism is a problem, and it’s only getting worse.


Editor’s Note: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that the Tennessee legislation was passed on the same day as the shooting. The article has been updated to reflect the bill’s passage earlier in March. We apologize to our readers for this error.
