For three days after the Colorado gay nightclub massacre, Democrats and their media allies have slammed conservative opponents of drag queen groomer hour as “stochastic terrorists” to blame for the tragedy.
Then, much to their chagrin, the suspect’s attorneys filed court filings on Tuesday saying he identified as non-binary and using the pronouns “they, they.”
Suddenly her right-wing homophobia narrative collapsed. Not that it prompted any self-reflection. They will just wait for the next opportunity to weaponize tragedy.
Of course, for all their emotionality, they never really cared about the five Colorado victims, who were just weapons against their most effective opponents on the right.
Just as the left turned George Floyd’s death under the knee of a white police officer into a racial civil war that won them votes in the 2020 election, they plotted to turn the Club Q massacre into a new culture war. They’re panicking because Elon Musk has dismantled the left-wing censorship regime on Twitter that has sustained so many of their dishonest narratives, and their goal is to justify a new round of censorship by pretending conservatives are committing violence against LGBTQ people provoke.
There is no tragedy that they would not exploit to political advantage. But judging by her haste, she’s left egg on her face.
Whatever the story behind the reveal of Colorado suspect Anderson Lee Aldrich’s gender, it was apparent from the start that he is a mentally ill individual whose life has been littered with red flags, which should at least keep him away from guns.
Why haven’t authorities responded to a 2021 complaint from Aldrich’s grandparents that he was planning to carry out a mass shooting, KKTV 11 News reported Wednesday from old arrest papers?
There are many useful lessons to be learned from the tragedy, but the demonization of Fox News is not one of them. Aldrich, an obese 22-year-old who was reportedly bullied at school, had been abandoned by his drug-addicted father, a porn actor, and left at the tender mercy of a mother with her own drug addiction, who conflicted with the law and had a “severe borderline.” – Personality Disorder”.
None of this mattered to Michelle Goldberg, a staff editor at the New York Times, who didn’t even wait until the bodies were cold before politicizing the massacre in a mendacious play titled Club Q and the Demonization of Drag Queens. ”
Their line is that far-right villains like Tucker Carlson and Ron DeSantis are responsible for promoting “escalating anti-gay and anti-trans violence.” [and] growing moral panic over children being ‘groomed’ to gender nonconformities.”
“You can’t escape responsibility if a sick man with a gun takes you seriously,” she says.
Among her pantheon of evildoers was conservative writer Chris Rufo. But a cursory glance at his work reveals thorough, evidence-based essays mostly in the renowned City Journal. He’s done parents a favor by exploring the sinister ideological origins of the Drag Queen Story Hour, attempting to hypersexualize children, indoctrinating them into “queer theory” and confusing them about their gender.
This is serious coverage that the Times will likely get to in a few years, when it becomes impossible to ignore class action lawsuits from adult children who have been tricked into ruining their lives with sex surgeries and hormone therapies.
Goldberg also named Matt Walsh, the author of The Daily Wire, who is undeterred by the sick fad of child surgical mutilation performed under the euphemistic guise of “gender confirmation.” His reporting forced Vanderbilt University’s transgender clinic in Tennessee to “pause” its lucrative and irreversible child sex surgeries, including double mastectomies in girls.
Goldberg also lobbied QAnon and the Proud Boys for defamation by association.
Equally dishonest was NBC, where two of the media’s worst disinformation activists, Ben Collins and his collaborator Brandy Zadrozny, the doxing specialist, piled on the opportunistic school orgy. Fox News and the entire Republican Party blamed Colorado for telling it.
Elon Musk is also guilty of unbanning psychologist Jordan Peterson, satirical site Babylon Bee and Libs of TikTok, an account that simply reposts videos from social media platform TikTok and the self-published views of the country’s most twisted left including teachers, who boast of secretly bombarding their young charges with sexual propaganda.
“We follow hate trends on the internet [and] since April and March, the LGBT community has been at the center of this hatred,” Zadrozny said. “There is a pipeline. It starts with some smaller online accounts like Libs of TikTok, moves into the right wing blogosphere and then ends up at Tucker Carlson or from the mouth of a right wing politician. It’s a dangerous cycle and it has real-world consequences.”
Collins delivered an even more extraordinary diatribe on Tuesday’s NBC’s Morning Joe, blaming the Colorado massacre on anyone who spoke out against children being exposed to the sexual burlesque of Drag Queen Story Hour.
“We have to have a ‘come to Jesus’ moment here as reporters,” he said.
“Are we more scared of being at Breitbart for saying trans people deserve to be alive or are we more scared of the dead?”
Who says trans people “don’t deserve to be alive”?
But Collins’ monologue built on that straw man as the Boomer jesters beside him on the NBC set nodded to his self-aggrandizing fantasies.
“These bodies are not yet in the ground and are currently being used as political props,” Collins said, “expressly for electoral or monetary purposes.”
Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.
It is the Democrats and their media allies who have used Club Q victims as political props.
Claire McCaskill, the former Democratic senator, surfaced on NBC to blame Trump and DeSantis when the slogan “WAPO: Club Q shooting follows year of bomb threats, drag protests, anti-trans bills” became the undercurrent of emphasis appeared on the screen.
“Donald Trump wrote the script that many politicians are following. . . Ron DeSantis welcomes this with everything he’s got, that people who are different from you somehow become a villain who gets people to vote for you. . . It’s terribly depressing and nasty and bad for our culture. . . You get violence.”
I mean hello McCaskill was just describing the “ultra MAGA,” “semi-fascist” demonization strategy that Democrats have so successfully employed for the Midterms.
This is their playbook in a nutshell. Blaming their opponents for their own hateful tactics. This time it backfired. But there will always be a next time.
