Crazy Narrative Shift After Bombshell Revelation After Q-Club Shooter Goes ‘Non-Binary’ – RedState

Oh man, how things can change in an instant. In the past few days, following the deadly mass shooting at an LGBT club in Colorado, the press and its left-wing allies have been cracking down on the right, suggesting that opposition to the sexualization of children incites the killings.

Far-left figures like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Chasten Buttigieg and others ran the gambit, blaming everyone from Lauren Boebert to Tucker Carlson. And then, like a ton of bricks dropped off a cliff, came news that the killer was “non-binary” and would go by the pronouns “they/them” in court documents and speeches.

How could that be? Nancy Pelosi had already announced that “MAGA Republicans” were responsible for inciting the shooting. The White House blamed a right-wing climate of “LGBT+ hate.” Then there was Ben Collins of NBC News, a self-proclaimed “misinformation reporter” (as you can see he literally means that). He blamed the right-wing media, including Breitbart and the TikTok Libs, for this heinous crime.

What was Collins supposed to do with the news that the shooter wasn’t actually a Trump-loving, Tucker Carlson-following Christian conservative? Well, he had to change the story, and he had to do it fast. Instead of admitting his mistake, he quickly moved on, noting that he should never have dropped the gun. defends shooter.

Don’t you see? Now that we know the shooter was part of the privileged class and doesn’t fit into the neat boxes the left likes to use to blame the right for every mass shooting, the murders are now the fault of the supposedly mocking “good guys” online. of the shooter. How convenient, right?

According to Collins, this madman’s experience of cyberbullying seven years ago explains why he decided to open fire at the nightclub. It couldn’t be that this guy was just a mentally ill person who stole from his family a year ago and for some inexplicable reason never faced charges. Instead, because Collins is too married to always blame the right for everything, he’s now willing to defend a murderer in the process. It is an incredible change to witness what is happening in real time.

What’s also surprising is to see a common standard on the left regarding “gender identity” change. For years, we’ve been bombarded with statements that it’s bigotry to desexualize someone for any reason. Even when it comes to men trying to break into women’s prisons, we are told that their “personality” must be respected. However, we eventually found a situation where this did not apply. This led many to believe the killer was lying to protect himself from hate crime charges.

It does not pass muster. First, lawyers are not going to risk their careers to knowingly lie for a suspect, especially when there is nothing to gain. The man is charged with five counts of first-degree murder, which would have put him in prison for life without parole. Hate crime charges are irrelevant in this context. Second, we know the shooter has been bullied in the past because of his “identity,” Collins writes. Third, his being “non-binary” actually provides a reasonable explanation for his association with the club. Surely something more reasonable than suggesting to follow Tucker Carlson.

Regardless, the left wing’s “gender identity” insanity has them cornered. They’ve become so absolutist, they’ve even tried to censor jokes on the subject (ie The Babylon Bee’s suspension from Twitter for nearly a year) that now they can’t help but approve of the gay/transgender nightclub shooter . claims to be transgender. It was the inevitable consequence of turning on any tenuous grasp of reality for political gain, and it only gets more absurd from here.
