Once I woke up from my post anaesthetic nap yesterday, a new school shooting in Nashville was all over news. A gunman had entered a school associated with a Christian school in Nashville TN, killed three children, three adults and was him/herself killed by the police. The news took a while to develop, but when they identified the shooter, it turned out to be a transman (a woman seeking to become a man, for those confused by the lingo), who had left behind a manifesto, which to my knowledge, has yet to be fully revealed to the public. Speculation that he/she went to the school many years before, and was upset by Tennessee's attempt to ban the gender bending of children. This, all after transactivists declared a Trans Day of Vengence. Stacy McCain, BREAKING NEWS: Nashville School Shooter Is Probably Not a Trump Voter.
While I always strive to avoid speculation in situations like this, the (allegedly) transgender person known as Audrey (or “Aiden”) Hale does not seem to fit the MAGA profile. It is not yet known if Hale’s motive was political, or if she/“he” was just crazy. Therefore I must withhold judgment on whether this shooting — which killed three children and three adults at a Christian school in the Green Hills neighborhood of Nashville — could be described as transgender terrorism.Update: Transgender Killer Confirmed; Left Behind a "Manifesto". Matt Vespa at Town Hall on Why the Nashville Christian School Shooting Is About to Disappear From the News Cycle. Don Surber, What the media doesn't say about a mass murderer details the MSM attempting dodge the facts. eg. "In a 28-paragraph account, CNN did not mention the transsexualism of the shooter. It did say, “The shooter did not have any known history of mental illness.” But we are not allowed to call transsexualism a mental disorder." 'Bonchie' at Red State thinks the Press Make an Absolutely Horrific Move in Dealing With the Psychotic Transgender Shooter. They're worried about what pronouns to use. Jorge Bonilla@BonillaJL, "IT BEGINS: ABC's Terry Moran ties the Nashville school shooting to Tennessee's recently-passed legislation banning the hormonization and mutilation of minors. The shooter was 28."
Posie Parker (Kellie-Jay Keene) is a British anti-transgender ideology activist, and she has been on a world tour to make her case. She has been harassed every step along the way, both by the governments in countries she has been visiting and by the thousands of activists who have been mobbing and shutting down her events. She gets “special treatment” (customs harassment) when entering countries and is smeared by the news media as a White supremacist.
Because she opposes trans ideology. As you can see from the video, she wasn’t just shouted down. She was physically assaulted by a mob. She had to shelter in a police station, and the police escorted her to the airport so that she could escape from New Zealand less than 24 hours after she arrived to speak.

CJ, One Bank, Indivisible, "Government decisions are making America into a nation of big banks, and only big banks." CNBC, Deposit drain from smaller banks into financial giants like JPMorgan Chase has slowed, sources say. Capt. Ed, "SVB got caught with its pants down on its bond assets. So did Signature Bank and Credit Suisse, apparently. The next few weeks will be key to seeing just how badly smaller and regional banks prepared for the inevitable rate hikes that followed the beginning of the inflationary wave that started almost exactly two years ago. If the Fed holds off on future interest rate hikes for a while and lets banks tighten money access on their own to stabilize their balance sheets, the worst of this may be behind us."

“Yeah, it’s funny, I mean, I was raised in a traditional ACLU liberal, I believed in free speech all my life.

“Apparently, something very dramatic has changed in politics in America, and there’s been a shift. There’s no question about it anymore, that now the parties have had a complete reversal on how they read these issues.”

For example, Rozado’s data show that on the ISideWith 2023 Political Quiz, ChatGPT absurdly stated the U.S. government should raise taxes on the rich, provide free college for all and provide illegal immigrants with subsidized healthcare, in-state tuition at public colleges and the right to vote. It also answered that the U.S. should abolish the electoral college, that local police funding should instead be spent on social and community programs and that convicted criminals should have the right to vote. ChatGPT is also admittedly pro-choice and favors government funding of Planned Parenthood.
