Nashville police identified the shooter who opened fire on Monday morning at The Covenant School as 28-year-old Audrey Hale, a transgender former student at the private Presbyterian school.
Three children and three adults were murdered in the shooting: Evelyn Dieckhaus, 9, Hallie Scruggs, 9, William Kinney, 9, Cynthia Peak, 61, Katherine Koonce, 60, and Mike Hill, 61.
Nashville police chief John Drake identified Hale as a transgender woman on Monday afternoon, but Hale listed “He/Him” pronouns on a LinkedIn profile.
In the wake of the horrific attack on innocent lives at the Nashville Covenant School, Libtards are taking to Twitter in defense of the shooter.
They don’t “condone” the behavior, but they “understand it,” one user wrote, who also blamed the shooting on the state’s brainwashing children in religion.
Another heartless creep believes Tennessee “got what it deserved,” and warned that you “Can’t victimize people nonstop and expect something bad not to happen.”
Can you believe it?
One of the more appalling statements pushing this narrative came from the Trans Resistance Network who said they were gosh, really sorry about the dead kids BUT the real sad story here is Hale.
Yeah, we’re not even making this up.
Take a look for yourself.
Hale is not the real victim. Not at all.
That’s probably why they locked down.
And obviously, because they were called out for their transphobic language, mainstream media outlets like The New York Times and USA Today had to issue statements correcting their misgendering the shooter.
