Probable Motive Revealed for Nashville Transgender Shooter

The tragic mass shooting at a Nashville Christian school continues to dominate the news and for very good reason.

The shooter has been identified as a 28-year-old “transgender man,” which means we are dealing with a biological female. As with all these shootings, the question of motivation quickly becomes tantamount. What would drive a person to kill children? It’s hard to fathom.


In this case, there has been speculation, justifiably so, that this transgender person was acting based on a political motive. Law enforcement has indicated as much, and there are just too many coincidences to ignore, such as this being a Christian school and the atrocity taking place right after Tennessee passed a bill banning so-called “gender-affirming care” for minors.

Now, we are getting our first solid details of a possible motive, and everything is pointing in the direction of a politicized hate crime.

Twisted school shooter Audrey Hale was at odds with her devout Christian parents because they ‘couldn’t accept’ she was gay and transgender, can exclusively reveal.

Church coordinator Norma, 61, and her husband Ronald, 64, refused to let Hale – who had recently adopted the name Aiden and used he/him pronouns – dress as a man in their home.

The 28-year-old loner would instead wait until she left their $700,000 Nashville property to change outfits, according to a well-placed source.


I’m constantly amazed at how much evil is in the world and what people are capable of. In this case, it appears that the shooter didn’t like that her parents wouldn’t affirm her mental illness. She then took retribution to a Christian school, murdering children in the process. It has been reported that killing her parents was likely part of the plan as well, though she never got that far thanks to the bravery of the police.

No one should think broader society is off the hook here either. Specifically, the far-left backed by the mainstream press preaches that people can change their gender and that affirmation is the only path forward for deranged individuals who clearly need psychiatric help. They have created this environment where transgender individuals feel justified in physically harming others who don’t abide by their delusions. That’s where the calls for a “Trans Day of Vengeance” have stemmed from.

Astonishingly, despite the horrific crime committed, some in the media are actually trying to paint the shooter as a victim. There’s a suggestion that she was driven to the crime by her parents not accepting her delusions. Sorry, I’m not down for that hostage situation. Transgenderism is a mental illness, and there is no excuse for murdering others due to a lack of acceptance of it, much less murdering children.


This was a hate crime, and it should be treated as such.
