(Joshua Paladino, Headline USA) Without evidence and before an official investigation had barely begun, the far-leftist LGBT mob media pounced to blame conservatives and Fox News for a nightclub shooting in Colorado Springs, Colorado, in which a 22-year-old gunman killed five and injured 18.
“You have anti-LGBTQ rhetoric spewed on the most watched hours of Fox News at a regular clip against the U.S. Military, against gay men and women, against gay teachers, against their right to exist,” she said Monday on Deadline: White House, according to NewsBusters.
Wallace tried to further the false narrative that the MAGA movement has radicalized Americans into committing crimes, an idea often asserted and then forgotten as details emerge about each person’s background, as happened in the Paul Pelosi hammering incident.
She asked her guest, Michigan state Sen. Mallory McMorrow, to comment on the “dehumanization that goes on all day, every day, in America” against LGBT-identifying people.
“You know, hate doesn’t exist in a vacuum,” McMorrow said. “And this has been a record year, 2022, for anti-LGBTQ legislation led by the GOP. Anti-trans legislation, and we now see with Libs of TikTok, on the very same day that this shooting happened targeting another drag show in Colorado. We’ve seen windows being smashed at gay bars.”
The shooter, Anderson Lee Aldrich, has a history of making violent threats, indicating an unstable man who never received proper psychological or legal correction.
The El Paso Sheriff’s Department stated in a 2021 report that Aldrich’s mother warned her son was “threatening to cause harm to her with a homemade bomb, multiple weapons, and ammunition.”
Police arrested Aldrich and charged him with “two counts of felony menacing, and three counts of first-degree kidnapping for the incident.”
Despite Aldrich’s lacking apparent far-Right connections, organizations like the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation have labeled the shooting a hate crime.
McMorrow ignored Aldrich’s violent record and insane threats, and she instead accused conservatives who reject queer ideology with words of killing people in reality.
“And you can’t take part in this continued onslaught of words against the LGBTQ community and not look at this and have blood on your hands,” she said.
Not wanting to miss a chance to blame MAGA Republicans and conservative media for something that wasn’t their fault, NBC News jumped on the bandwagon.
“It starts from some smaller accounts online like Libs of TikTok, it moves to the Right-wing blogosphere, and then it ends up on Tucker Carlson, or it ends up out of a Right-wing politician’s mouth,” opined alleged news reporter and leftist activist Brandy Zadrozny.
