Kamala Shakes Fist, Flares Nostrils in Speech Defending Nashville ‘Insurrection’
Two weeks after a crazed, transgender shooter killed six people in a Nashville elementary school, Vice President Kamala Harris finally took time from her busy schedule to visit Tennessee–but not to meet with the victims’ families. Harris instead met with two lawmakers expelled from the Tennessee Assembly for disrupting proceedings and leading a mob of protesters into the chamber. The Vice President was unwilling to attend the funerals of the three staff members or three children killed in the Covenant School but was more than happy to shake her fist, foam at the mouth, and give a performative speech about threats to “our democracy.”
“She didn’t come to Nashville to attend any of the vigils for the children murdered by a trans terrorist. She didn’t come to meet with the families. Instead, she’s coming for this,” Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh tweeted about Harris’ last-minute trip to Tennessee. “These people are truly just absolute scum. Hideously wicked human beings.”
Two days after the final shooting victim was buried, Harris arrived in the Tennessee capital and hugged the expelled lawmakers. She spoke at Fisk Memorial Chapel in Nashville and offered a passionate, outraged defense of the so-called “Tennessee Three.”
“It wasn’t about the three of these leaders. It was about who they were representing. It’s about whose voices they were channeling! Understand that!” Harris shouted at the audience, waving her hands.
“And is that not what a democracy allows?” She added, “A democracy says you don’t silence the people! You do not stifle the people!”
Video of the protest at the Tennessee Capitol showed the three Democrat lawmakers leading a horde of protesters into the chamber to disrupt the session, violating the legislature’s rules. The trio commandeered the chamber for 30 to 45 minutes and shouted at their colleagues through a bullhorn.
Still, Harris defended the chaos as a healthy exercise in democracy,
“You don’t turn off their microphones when they’re speaking about the importance of life and liberty!”

Republicans later condemned the Vice President for giving her rage-filled speech and snubbing the families of the Nashville shooting victims.
Kamala Harris in Nashville: She didn’t meet the shooting victims’ families. She didn’t attend their funerals. She barely referred to them in her speech. She didn’t visit the local community,” former transgender activist Oli London wrote. “Her whole trip to Nashville was all about showing support to the three democrat lawmakers who were expelled from the Tennessee House for organizing an insurrection.”

“Instead of meeting the families of the Covenant School victims… Kamala Harris is going to Nashville today to push for gun control and meet the insurrectionists expelled from the legislature. Total scumbag” said Students for Trump founder Ryan Fournier.
“Kamala Harris came to Nashville to meet the Tennessee 3 but we need to show her the 6 victims of the Covenant shooting that Tennessee actually stands with. Why do Democrats tell people that they are victims but ignore the real ones?”

Three children and three faculty members at the Covenant School were shot and killed by 28-year-old transgender Audrey Hale on March 27. The Biden administration has refused to recognize the shooting as an attack against Christians and did not attend the funerals of any of the victims. On Friday, Joe Biden invited the expelled members of the Tennessee legislature to visit him at the White House.
