Left using Colorado shootings to silence LGBT's critics
By newseditors // 2022-11-26
Leftism has been on the march for more than a century at least. Yet one aspect of it, the so-called “transgender” agenda, has been on its heels lately, with millions of Americans outraged that child genital mutilation is being justified in “gender identity’s” name. Now, however, the sexual devolutionaries believe they’ve found a way to flip the script:
(Article by Selwyn Duke republished from TheNewAmerican.com)
Applying the “Emanuelian” principle “Never let a serious crisis go to waste,” they’re using Friday’s shooting at the Colorado Springs “LGBTQ” nightclub Club Q to try to silence the Sexual Devolution’s critics. The theory, of course, is that the latter’s virtue-oriented pushback against the mutilation and sexualization of minors is inspiring violence against “LGBTQ” individuals. As House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) put it Sunday, “MAGA Republicans are cruelly undermining the safety and well-being of our transgender community.” Never mind that based on information released thus far, there’s nothing indicating that the Club Q killer, Anderson Lee Aldrich, has any deep anti-sexual devolutionary passions.
One man signaling that he won’t be silenced, though, is Fox News host Tucker Carlson. In fact, perhaps believing the “best defense is a good offense,” the commentator doubled down on his criticism of the MUSS (Made-up Sexual Status, aka “transgender”) agenda Monday evening.
Carlson opened his segment stressing that we shouldn’t cease being horrified by violence. He also mentioned that while we don’t yet know Aldrich’s motive, he might not have been able to commit his Friday crime if the local district attorney had pursued charges against him last year for threatening to blow up his mother’s house with a bomb.
The powers-that-be aren’t timid about pursuing something else, however: The politicization of the Colorado crime. As Carlson stated:
Within hours of the shootings, Joe Biden and his allies used this tragedy as a pretext for disarming the law-abiding population of the country. We need more gun control, Joe Biden said predictably. Notwithstanding the fact that Colorado’s existing gun control laws, which are extensive, did not prevent this attack. It was a contemptible and heartless and deeply cynical display of political opportunism.
But it didn’t stop with gun control because, in fact, the Second Amendment is not the freedom that threatens the people in charge the most. No, that would be the First Amendment, which is your right to say what you sincerely believe…. Your words are a greater threat than any firearm. They must censor you or else they lose power….
These horrifying murders in Colorado over the weekend quickly became a pretext for yet more censorship of your speech. You are responsible for this, they told you, because you said the wrong thing.
You are guilty of stochastic terrorism, inspiring violence by your beliefs. Anderson Lee Aldrich committed mass murder because you complained about the sexualizing of children. Every time you object to Drag [Queen] Story Hour for fifth graders or point out that genital mutilation is being committed on minors (which it is) … you are putting people’s lives at risk.
Now that seems implausible, and yet many are making this claim.
Carlson then provided an example, playing a clip of NBC’s Brandy Zadrozny. “Online, including this Libs of TikTok account, which feeds larger media like Fox News stories, what has happened is a demonization of LGBTQ people, calling them groomers and pedophiles,” she said, claiming that this was scaring “LGBTQ people.”
“There it is, right there,” Carlson then stated. “When you point out the truth, indisputably, and the truth is that some adults in this country, apparently a growing number, have a deeply unhealthy fixation on the sexuality of children … you get people killed.” And “by saying that, Brandy Zadrozny and the many people like her are effectively defending that same deeply unhealthy fixation on the sexuality of children” (video below).
Speaking of the best defense being a good offense, something should be mentioned every time leftists play this indirect-blame, “You must stay silent or you’ll kill people” game:
Who inspired the 2017 congressional baseball shooting committed by Bernie Sanders supporter James Hodgkinson, hmm? Then, also, who inspired the
This said and to be fair, it is true that criticizing the sexual devolutionary agenda could lead to violence against “LGBTQ” individuals.
And inveighing against thievery could inspire violence against thieves.
Condemning child molestation could inspire violence against pedophiles, too.
Maybe we should all just shut up all the time about everything. Or we could accept reality: Anytime we criticize anything, rightly or wrongly, some unhinged individual with corresponding passions could react violently. But here’s the distinction:
If we’re speaking Truth and our criticism is proportionate, then any violence thus inspired is what a philosopher might call a negative unintended consequence of a morally licit action. If we utter falsehoods, however, and propagandize and unfairly malign, then we’re partially culpable for any resulting violence because our actions were immoral to begin with.
Making this worse still is when you then also do violence to Truth — by trying to stifle its expression.
