I’m not the first, and I surely won’t be the last, to ask:
After lecturing us incessantly over pronouns and transgender names, why were the media in lockstep dead naming and misgendering (by persistent use of she/her pronouns) Nashville school shooter Aiden Hale?
Countless people across this nation have been harassed, been called bigots and transphobes, been canceled on social media, lost jobs, and been sanctioned at school and work, when they refused to knuckle under to the woke transgender religion.
It’s certainly polite and civil to call a person by the name they choose. But it’s also presumptuous, in my opinion, to demand that people call you by a pronoun that doesn’t fit your biology. Granted, though, it’s polite to do so, with the caveat that people who “slip” should be cut a good deal of slack.
There should be room for conscientious objection (note the root “science”), though, because nobody has a right to order people what to say or how to speak, much less demand that they hew to your new, unilaterally created rules of English grammar. (For example, “they” is a plural pronoun and is never correctly applied to an individual.)
All that being said, we’ve been suffering for years now under this oppressive regime of transgenderism, promoted by leftists but fully supported and enforced by the media. So why do they change their tune now?
Why is Aiden Hale dead named as Audrey Hale, and why is he referred to in stories as she?
Why is “biological female” now a thing? Have you read that phrase recently to describe any other transgender person in the news?
Do the media call Hale she simply because they want so badly to announce another first or rarity, in that Hale is apparently among the very few mass killers who were “assigned female at birth” and were, in other words, “biological females?”
In future, can we look forward to sports stories that call it like it is, whenever a “biological male” sets a record while competing in a women’s event? If only!
Will the media now, finally, refer to Rachel Levine as a “biological male?”
Don’t count on it.
So what’s up with this sudden reluctance to hew to their own mandates on speaking of/about “transgender” men and women?
Are they perhaps trying to avoid the inevitable question of what hormones, if any, Aiden Hale was taking?
Did high doses of testosterone contribute to this horrific event?
Legislatures across the nation are currently proposing, considering, and passing legislation that regulates “gender affirming care” for minors. Does this fact play a role in the odd about face we see in the media?
Do they really think that by calling Hale she or a “biological female” they will prevent the incident from being used in arguments over those bills?
Granted, Hale was not a minor, but was he on testosterone? That would seem to be a question to which legislators might want to know the answer, on the off chance that hormone “therapy” indeed played a role in Hale’s apparent suicidal/homicidal ideation and propensity to commit violence.
It should be asked in any mass shooting incident: What medications, drugs (legal or illegal), or other pharmaceutical treatments may have influenced the alleged shooter’s crime?
What effect does long-term use of testosterone have upon the female body and mind? Has anyone even studied this question before prescribing cross-sex hormones to people who believe they’re the opposite sex?
How much does Big Pharma lean on politicians and media to ensure that nobody asks questions to which they don’t want the People to learn the answers?
Many drugs currently prescribed to young people (for ADHD, depression, autism, e.g.) have warning labels indicating that they can and do cause suicidal and even homicidal ideation. Why, then, do autopsies of mass shooters and investigations into their violence seem to avoid the issue altogether?
We don’t need more therapies, such as puberty blockers or cross-sex hormone treatments, to potentially cause even more incidents of mass violence.
“After being picked up by netizens who were combing through Hale’s LinkedIn for more information, the account was swiftly closed. Shortly following the announcement that Audrey Hale was identified as the suspect, Hale’s other social media accounts were also deactivated. …”
WHY? What’s wrong with the TRUTH?
“Fact: Despite 27 international drug regulatory warnings on psychiatric drugs citing effects of mania, hostility, violence and even homicidal ideation, and dozens of high profile shootings/killings tied to psychiatric drug use, there has yet to be a federal investigation on the link between psychiatric drugs and acts of senseless violence.
Fact: At least 37 school shootings and/or school-related acts of violence have been committed by those taking or withdrawing from psychiatric drugs resulting in 175 wounded and 82 killed (in other school shootings, information about their drug use was never made public—neither confirming or refuting if they were under the influence of prescribed drugs).
Fact: Between 2004 and 2012, there have been 14,773 reports to the U.S. FDA’s MedWatch system on psychiatric drugs causing violent side effects including: 1,531 cases of homicidal ideation/homicide, 3,287 cases of mania & 8,219 cases of aggression. Note: The FDA estimates that less than 1% of all serious events are ever reported to it, so the actual number of side effects occurring are most certainly higher.

School-related acts of violence aren’t the only cases commonly found to be under the influence of psychiatric drugs. There are 28 other acts of senseless violence committed by individuals taking or withdrawing from psychiatric drugs resulting in an additional 270 dead and 164 wounded. …”
So it HAS BEEN studied. Results apparently ignored.
Hale’s family says he was being treated for an “emotional” problem but they don’t know what the treatment was. Media say investigation shows Hale was in the process of “transitioning.” What did that entail? Once deceased, does the person retain privacy rights, even when it’s in society’s best interests to know what happened? https://www.vox.com/science-and-health/2018/6/14/17458726/depression-drugs-suicide-side-effect
“The recent suicides of celebrities Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade have prompted many of us to look more closely at what may drive people to depression or to end their own lives.
One risk factor has gotten little attention in this discussion: the medications people take.
More than a third of American adults are using medications that have the potential to increase their risk of depression, a study published this week in JAMA finds, and nearly a quarter use medications that have suicidal symptoms as side effects. …”
There’s a long list of over 200 medications that cause suicidal thoughts. That particular article doesn’t mention homicidal thoughts, but they go hand in hand, often. Hale, it was said, wrote to a friend before the murders and said he was going to die and it was suicide.
Here we go,. Smear the family. Smear the parents. Smear the church. It’s THEIR FAULT because they’re such Christian bigots.
Can’t possibly be the fault of those who indulged the delusion, those who cannot tolerate other opinions, can it?
“Twisted school shooter Audrey Hale was at odds with her devout Christian parents because they ‘couldn’t accept’ she was gay and transgender, DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal.
Church coordinator Norma, 61, and her husband Ronald, 64, refused to let Hale – who had recently adopted the name Aiden and used he/him pronouns – dress as a man in their home.
The 28-year-old loner would instead wait until she left their $700,000 Nashville property to change outfits, according to a well-placed source. …”
Yes, an ANONYMOUS SOURCE saying what they need to say to exonerate the killer and throw the blame on the family and Christians. I’m assuming this person lived at home with the parents, so why not live by their rules? 28 years old and not on its own yet?
They have indicted President Trump in NYC. It’s a sad, sad day in our country. God bless him and God help him and his family. God help our nation. We need it.

The Dems and left do not know truth or honesty. They have seriously and gravely damaged education, city governments, justice, entertainment, our once great military, almost every aspect of our western civilization. They push us to precivilation. Hopefully, the beast they unleashed turns on them.
I am ALL for this. Consider the tax crimes they may have committed when not paying state income taxes!
Throw the books at them. Tit for tat.
But, but, but … we’re fighting for democracy and western civilization! As if that includes Nazi- and Stalin-like oppression of religion!
The Frightening Precedent of Indicting an Innocent Former President

Who fact checks the “fact checkers?” https://townhall.com/tipsheet/rebeccadowns/2023/04/03/is-this-wapos-worst-fact-check-yet-n2621465
Just us chickens.
Last I looked, the mainstream TV networks were following the President’s motorcade from the sky, a la the O.J. Simpson chase. It’s disgusting. https://townhall.com/tipsheet/spencerbrown/2023/04/03/trump-arrives-in-new-york-ahead-of-tuesdays-arraignment-n2621464
Lots of good stuff at Townhall:
Compare and contrast what they’re doing to President Trump, and have done in the past, to what they’re doing to this black woman who, one would think, is on their side:
FIRED as a diversity, inclusion, and equity (DIE white people) administrator at a woke college because she wouldn’t stop being reasonable and giving all views equal time. She wouldn’t SUBMIT to the CRT orthodoxy because, she actually said, it’s RACIST. Good for her. We need more people to stand up and say NO to this B.S. It’s completely un-American.
They continue to “dead name” him, Aiden Hale, and misgender by using the wrong pronouns:
What about the victims, btw? Have you seen ANY photos of those children or the BLACK MAN who was murdered in Nashville in the NATIONAL news, on NATIONAL TV, in the U.S.? No, the word has gone out, especially at CBS. These lives, including the black life, DON’T MATTER when there’s an agenda at stake.
Where are the videos of the memorial services? Where is the coverage of each and every FUNERAL as we’ve seen with victims of other mass shootings (when they’re killed by white males)?
Have you noticed the plethora of editorial comics showing middle-aged, heavy, rural WHITE MALES as gun toting monsters ignoring the school buses full of little children in the crosshairs of mass shooters? AS IF these shootings have all be carried out by Trump voting, WHITE MIDDLE-AGED MEN?
What is the truth? Transgender or “non-binary” shooters. Young men of all colors. Leftists. YOUNG shooters, teens or twenties, NOT middle aged NRA members. They don’t care, though. THEY LIE.
They’re NEVER going to announce the motive because they cannot. They and we know what the motive was. Anti-Christian HATE crime.
I’d be willing to bet that MOST black people don’t know a black man was murdered that day by a transgender “man.”
Have you noticed how many in the media are joining in on the “we have to ban guns to protect children” crusade?
Guns have been possessed since the beginning of this nation. I would like them to tell us about ANY school mass shooting that happened before, say, 1950. Or tell us how many mass shooting there have been throughout the history of the nation (not counting wars). Show us a graph. What do you suspect it will show? It will PROVE that it’s not the guns or the possessing of guns or the number of guns–it’s the hearts and minds and values (or lack thereof) of the possessors of the guns.
This school was ALREADY a gun-free zone. That law didn’t stop this shooter. Killers are going to find a way to kill. If they can’t use guns, they’ll use knives or bombs or any other thing that will provide the means. Taking guns away from peaceful, non-violent, law-abiding citizens will not stop one mass shooting.
What will? How about two-parent homes? Lacking that, orphanages that TEACH VALUES (like the Golden Rule, not any particular religion). How about punishments that fit the crime? How about getting rid of this notion of the “school to prison pipeline” that forbids DISCIPLINE in schools?
All we have to do is look at what’s changed since before WWII. What caused this? Johnson’s “Great Society” for one thing. Transgenderism. Anti-religion. Antifa. Hatred of our Founders and founding documents. Instilled in schools by Marxists. DRUGGING of children who’ve been diagnosed almost to a one with some mental illness. A HUGE industry of drugs and “counselors” and “social workers” built around and dependent upon this diagnosis of ADHD, or “autism SPECTRUM disorder”, or gender dysmorphia, or you name it. No wonder they want “red flag” laws. EVERY KID is already identified and diagnosed as mentally ill, so no kid so-named in school will ever be able to buy a gun, anyway, if they get those laws passed.
