Notice how the media has spent days telling us that this was a clear example of right-wing hatred fomented by those evil conservatives that don't want drag queens thrusting their junk into kids' faces?
The suspect identifies as non-binary.
Of course, I've been told we need to immediately affirm someone's gender identity, because gender is a construct that exists along a spectrum and to cast doubt on someone's lived truth is literal violence.
What a bigot!
From the article:
The person suspected of killing five and wounding 18 after opening fire in a gay nightclub in Colorado Springs is nonbinary, their defense attorney wrote in court filings Tuesday.
Joseph Archambault and Michael Bowman, the state public defenders for suspect Anderson Lee Aldrich, filed a slew of motions Tuesday and included a footnote about Aldrich's identity.
"Anderson Aldrich is nonbinary," the footnote states. "They use they/them pronouns, and for the purposes of all formal filings, will be addressed as Mx. Aldrich."
Expect to see this story die immediately.
The only thing the media hates more than portraying a conservative as a good guy is suggesting a woke LGBT person is a deranged criminal.
There's also this:
Not only does the man identify as part of the LGBT community, but authorities can't get any evidence that the shooting was motivated by hate against the LGBT community DESPITE the fact that they are trying REALLY hard to charge him with a hate crime.
I'm old enough to remember when every leftist politician and media hack used the 2016 Pulse gay nightclub shooting in Orlando to paint conservatives as evil Nazis that need their guns taken away.
In that case, it turns out the perp randomly targeted the nightclub and it wasn't an "anti-LGBT" hate crime at all. Added to that was the fact that the shooter was a Muslim named Omar who was carrying out an attack on behalf of ISIS!
If you don't believe me, uber-woke Vox admitted the same.
I was about 99% certain that the Colorado shooting would have a similar story: The media and the Democrats (but I repeat myself) would cry on TV about how politicians like Ted Cruz – who don't support drag in school or enshrining marriage between two men into federal law – are causing loving Christian fathers to grab their AR-15 murder canons and shoot up innocent nightclubs full of carousing gay men.
But now the story is dead in the water. Don't let it be. Don't let them get away with hypocrisy. The lives that were taken mattered. Those were people made in God's image. Force the media to report the truth about the crime and the criminal so it blows their narrative out of the water and sees actual justice done.
