Without asking if we were ready for it, nor even if we wanted the damned thing. But then, war has a longstanding habit of doing things like that.
Trans Days of Violence
Gender ideology + violence = terrorism.
One month ago a heavily-armed, 28-yr-old female named Audrey Elizabeth Hale, who identified as a transgender male, literally shot her way into a Nashville private Christian grade school called Covenant and murdered three nine-year-old students and three adults before police terminated her and her rampage.
Hale left a manifesto reportedly detailing her motivation, the contents of which the FBI is still protecting. Joseph Giacalone, former police officer and adjunct professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, believes authorities are not releasing the manifesto because there may be “something in there that is truly damaging for the transgender community.” Does the manifesto explode the narrative that the Left wants so desperately to maintain: that trans people are the victims of genocidal bigotry and not a threat to anyone? The narrative that the real domestic terror threat in America is Trump supporters and Tucker Carlson viewers?
Something called the Trans Resistance Network in Massachusetts, for example, released a statement on the Covenant school shooting stating that life for “transgender people is very difficult” due to “anti-trans legislation” and “right wing personalities.” The group also painted a sympathetic picture of shooter Hale as a “complex tragedy” who felt she “had no other effective way to be seen than to lash out by taking the life of others.”
No other way to be seen than to kill nine-year-olds? There is no one more visible in America today than a trans activist. They are celebrated in the culture, lauded as trailblazing heroes, and given every platform from the daytime gabfest The View to the White House itself. It is a grotesque lie and sick rationalization to claim that Audrey Hale had no other way to be “seen” than to shoot innocents dead – and furthermore, to claim that the trans community is marginalized and endangered.
NBC ran a story with the headline, “Fear pervades Tennessee’s trans community amid focus on Nashville shooter’s gender identity: ‘We were already fearing for our lives. Now, it’s even worse.’” As Federalist editor Mollie Hemingway put it on Twitter, “Gee, you’d think heavily armed Christian children were hunting down trans activists instead of the other way around.”
More examples of violent rhetoric from gender ideologues: the e-commerce site Etsy allows a significant number of shops to sell trans- and nonbinary-themed items threatening violence.
“Armed queers bash back,” reads a “Pride” flag with a picture of an AK-47.
“Respect my pronouns or yours will be was/were,” reads a sweatshirt.
One t-shirt pictures three daggers along with the words “Protect Trans Kids.”
“Respect gender pronouns or I will identify as a problem,” reads one sticker. Another one reads, “Respect my pronouns or die by my sword.”
“We’re here. We’re queer. I have a brick,” reads another shirt.
These are not vows of self-defense against a legitimate violent threat, but violent threats themselves against someone who might merely “misgender” a trans person. These are public warnings that if you fail to participate in or celebrate this gender delusion, or simply get someone’s “personal pronouns” wrong, some trans people are willing to kill you.
These are not the expressions of a community “living in fear,” but of thugs looking for an excuse to commit murder and mayhem – and confident that the media will circle the wagons around them, and the police will suppress information about their motivation, if they do.
As the Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh tweeted recently, “Always remember what happened at the Covenant School. Remember what happened to those innocent victims, to those children. We are facing a truly demonic evil. Never forget that.”
It is a truly demonic evil, and it’s time to call it like it is: terrorism.
Oh, I’d say it’s time, and past time, that this evil was dealt with by much harsher measures than just calling it names. This, and all too many other evils along with it. But maybe that’s just me; as I always say, your mileage may certainly vary.
Did somebody say “evil” just now? Why yes; yes, somebody did.

“We’re here, we’re queer, I have a brick”? Sorry, love, gonna take something a bit more, umm, stout than mere bricks to deal with all the things Our Side has in store for ya, once we’ve been pushed hard enough to finally break ‘em out. You and yours really, really need to think about that some, before it’s too late.
