LGBT Groups Defend Nashville Shooter, Don’t Want Manifesto Released

Members of the public and investigating authorities are still trying to make sense of a tragic shooting at The Covenant School in Nashville, Tennessee, that claimed the lives of six and injured others.

While most people have called for maximum transparency regarding the shooting details, some LGBT groups have defended the shooter and said that specific information, such as the shooter’s manifesto, should not be released to the public.

A radical transgender group known as the Trans Resistance Network said the transgender Nashville shooter, 28-year-old Audrey Hale, felt “no other effective way to be seen” than killing six people at a private Presbyterian school.

The group called the shooting a ‘dual tragedy,’ implying that the shooter was a victim as well, but did extend their ‘sympathies’ and ‘heartfelt prayers’ to the shooting victims’ families.

They went on to say that the ‘more complex’ tragedy is that the shooter felt they had no other options but to mow down innocent children and teachers in a school.

“The second and more complex tragedy is that Aiden or Audrey Hale, who felt [she] had no other effective way to be seen than to lash out by taking the life of others, and by consequence, [herself],” they continued.

The group went on to blame the shooting on ‘right wing personalities’ rather than on the person who committed the heinous act, saying that they “do know that life for transgender people is very difficult, and made more difficult in the preceding months by a virtual avalanche of anti-trans legislation, and public callouts by Right Wing personalities and political figures for nothing less than the genocidal eradication of trans people from society.”

People quickly condemned their statement, expressing shock that the organization’s primary concern was referring to the mass murderer by their correct pronouns.

“Hate has consequences,” the radical trans “collective” concluded.

While the ‘Trans Resistance Network’ has been busy apologizing for the mass shooter, other LGBT advocacy groups have argued against releasing the shooter’s manifesto.

Republicans have argued that the manifesto should be released so that people have a better understanding of the shooter’s mindset.

“We need to know what was going through this person’s head, and the manifesto should be made public,” Burchett told Fox News Digital in a Monday statement.

LGBT activist groups have attempted to redirect attention towards gun control measures rather than the motive of the shooter to justify not releasing the manifesto.

“It should not be published,” Jordan Budd, the executive director of Children of Lesbians and Gays Everywhere (COLAGE), told Newsweek. “The focus should be on how this was able to happen in the first place. There should not be such easy access to deadly weaponry.”

Still, police have indicated that they will eventually release the manifesto after the investigation.

Still, Laura McGinnis, a spokesperson for PFLAG, disagreed with the decision. She said that while the manifesto could help law enforcement and policymakers determine the motive of the shooter to prevent future incidents from occurring, “the contents don’t change the outcome of the tragedy.”
