The hate crime against children and staff at Covenant Presbyterian School is being politicized and horribly distorted. Three children and three adults were killed by a radical transgender who targeted the Christian school.
The radical left has wasted no time trying to twist the despicable act to their advantage.
The biased media wasted no time turning this hate-crime against Christians into a full court press attacking Biblical values and our constitutional rights.
Here are three disturbing ways the left is continuing to victimize the very group the “transgender” mass murderer was targeting.
1. The media openly attacked Tennesseans, Christians and Republicans for being anti-transgender and pro-gun
Following the shooting, ABC, NBC, CBS, NPR, CNN, Facebook, Apple News, Google News, and big tech blamed:
- The new Tennessee transgender laws against child body mutilations and “drag queen for children” events.
- Christians for their “backward hate” towards transgenders.
- Republican politicians blocking more gun control.
- MAGA Republicans and Trump.
The transgender murderer is being turned into a victim. The media is pushing rallies with people holding up 7 fingers…representing the 6 Christian victims and the murderer included as a victim.
Most of the media covered up the anti-Christian hate crime, treating it like another inner city shooting.
ABC focused its reporting on Tennessee’s ban on drag queen shows for kids. MSNBC said Tennessee was “ground zero for transgender attacks.”
The nation’s newspapers headlines censored the word “Christian” in their headlines.
The Washington Post headline read, “6 Slain in Shooting in Nashville School.”
The New York Times headline read, “Heavily Armed Assailant Kills 6 at School in Nashville.”
NBC and CBS wouldn’t mention that the killer was transgender in their headlines.
But the media — including MSNBC, PBS, and Business Insider — did say that Christians were a threat to the LGBTQ community.
Some called for “regulating” Christian schools.
Some accused Christians because of their “hate.”
However, the truth is that the killer was a transgender filled with hate against Christians.
In response to the shooting, GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy tweeted, “When someone says they’re trans, it usually means “something else” is badly wrong in their life. Let’s abandon the farce that the “humane” thing to do is to affirm their confusion, rather than to actually help. It’s inhumane. My heart goes out to the victims and their families in Nashville.”
Radio/Podcast personality Candace Owens also commented on the shootings, tweeting, “It is always a very clear case of mental illness when someone identifies as trans. This was an anti-Christian hate crime motivated by radical left gender ideology.”
2. TV, social media, and Liberal Politicians mocked prayer and Christians
Immediately, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and TV were filled with messages mocking Christians… especially in regard to prayer.
The messages were:
- If prayer worked, wouldn’t the students be alive today?
- Prayers didn’t do any good to the victims.
- We need more gun control, not prayer
- We need political action, not prayer.
The radical Deep State group Indivisible said: “Once again with Republicans offering thoughts and prayers when they have the power come to the table and enact change. We must continue to hold these Republicans accountable for their inaction and opposition to gun reform.”
But as Christians:
- We understand the power of prayer.
- We understand it’s not that prayer has power in and of itself, but from God.
- We understand prayer’s purpose isn’t commanding personal results.
As Christians, we recognize prayer is an act of obedience to God and His will for us to communicate with the true and living God.
Prayer is not controlling God according to our will. It’s based on a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. He is the victor over evil, and He is the comforter of the hurting.
The reality is, it’s not gun control that is going to stop this type of violence. It’s revival — revival in the hearts of men and women across America.
When President Biden addressed the killings, he asked Congress to pass his gun control bill.
When Tennessee Governor Bill Lee addressed the killings, he asked for prayer.
3. The White House reversed the roles of victim and victimizer
The Christian school shooting in Nashville was horrific. Six innocent lives were taken—three of them were children. But instead of treating the deranged trans-woman as a killer, the radical left makes the killer a victim.
Laura Ingraham asked her guest Ned Ryun about the radical left’s twisted ideology and their transgender war against Christianity.
During the interview, Ned points out, “For the transgender movement, the idea of a God is the mortal enemy of what they are doing. They are raging against the created order. In doing this, they are trying to get us to submit to their twisted worldview.”
Three days after the shooting, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said in a public address, “Our hearts go out to the trans community, as they are under attack right now.”
This isn’t just a tone-deaf take.
Then they held a national celebration for transgenderism. Just three days after the hate crime against Christians, Biden made a proclamation on Transgender Day of Visibility.
In part he said: “Transgender Americans shape our Nation’s soul –proudly serving in the military, curing deadly diseases, holding elected office, running thriving businesses, fighting for justice, raising families, and much more…
But today, too many transgender Americans are still denied those rights and freedoms. A wave of discriminatory State laws is targeting transgender youth, terrifying families and hurting kids who are not hurting anyone. An epidemic of violence against transgender women and girls, in particular women and girls of color, has taken lives far too soon. Last year’s Club Q shooting in Colorado was another painful example of this kind of violence — a stain on the conscience of our Nation. [Note: Biden forget to mention the shooting was done by a self-declared “non-binary” murder.]
My Administration has fought to end these injustices from day one, working to ensure that transgender people and the entire LGBTQI+ community can live openly and safely. On my first day as President, I issued an Executive Order directing the Federal Government to root out discrimination against LGBTQI+ people and their families. We have appointed a record number of openly LGBTQI+ leaders, and I was proud to rescind the ban on openly transgender people serving in the military.
The Department of Education is, for example, helping ensure that transgender students have equal opportunities to learn and thrive at school, and the Department of Justice is pushing back against extreme laws that seek to ban evidence-based gender-affirming health care.
Together, we also have to keep challenging the hundreds of hateful State laws that have been introduced across the country, making sure every child knows that they are made in the image of God, that they are loved, and that we are standing up for them.”
And Biden’s proclamation on the Christians hate crime?
This is part of a continuing pattern of elevating certain groups, considered “oppressed” in the Marxist hierarchy of victimhood, above all others… but especially above conservatives, Republicans, and Christians.
Even as three small Christian children and three adults are murdered in cold blood by a radical, hate-filled ideologue, the very highest offices in our nation can’t let go of their Marxist talking points….and glorifying the transgender.
The secular, radical ideologies flip reality and truth.
Institutions held in high regard for generations are deemed archaic.
What was right is now wrong. What was bad is now good. What was true is now false.
But truth is truth.
The greatest weapon of those at war with Biblical worldview is not to argue that the truth we know is wrong, but that we CAN’T even know truth.
At Jesus’ trial, Pontius Pilate asked this very question, “What is truth?” Well, for Pilate and those on the left, Jesus answered this for you. “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6, NIV)
Note: I prayed on national radio with Bill Martinez about the Christian hate crime in Nashville. You can listen to it HERE. The entire interview is about 20 minutes long.
