The Biden White House is uninterested in honoring the Nashville shooting victims
Every day last week, after three children and three adults were murdered by a transgender shooter at a Christian school in Nashville on Monday, Joe Biden waxed lyrical about the “joy, strength, and absolute courage [of] transgender and nonbinary Americans.”
Hard though it is to believe at a moment when discretion and sensitivity were needed, the president issued statements from the White House claiming “Transgender Americans shape our Nation’s soul.”
On Friday, four days after the massacre at the Covenant Christian school, he issued a proclamation declaring March 31 as “Transgender Day of Visibility” and railed against “MAGA extremists [who] are advancing hundreds of hateful and extreme state laws that target transgender kids and their families … These attacks are un-American and must end.”
The White House marked the occasion with a 3,464-word “fact sheet” suggesting that “conservative politicians” were driving “transgender youth” to consider suicide.
Never fear, though, President Biden is “standing up for transgender kids and their families.” But who is standing up for Christian kids and their families?
Must they now fear for their lives because of the hysterical lie, encouraged by the president, that their loving faith is bigoted and hateful toward transgender people?
Who is standing up for the victims of last week’s horror?
Certainly not the media, which has decided that the real victims are the transgender community, in anticipation of some imaginary backlash from Christians.
“Fear pervades Tennessee’s trans community amid focus on Nashville shooter’s gender identity” was a typical headline from NBC.
Corporate America sang from the same hymn book.
One day after the massacre of three little kids in Nashville, Amazon sent a message to “LGBTQIA+ employees and allies” expressing “support and solidarity during this period of apprehension and uncertainty.”
Biden and his White House just kept pumping out their trans propaganda right into the weekend.
They said not one word about Christians all week, despite the fact that the Nashville shooting appears to have been a hate crime targeted at a Christian school; we can’t yet definitely assert the motive because the killer’s so-called “manifesto” is being kept from us, unlike similar documents in other massacres.
Even when the funerals began for the Nashville victims, the White House didn’t let up.
On Friday, in the middle of Biden’s orgy of trans-pandering, the first of the Nashville victims was buried. Evelyn Dieckhaus, 9, was honored for her “unwavering faith in the goodness of others.”
“Evelyn made people feel known, seen, but never judged.”
Mourners at Woodmont Christian Church in Nashville, a couple of miles from the Covenant School, wore pink and green “in tribute to Evelyn’s light and love of color,” as her family requested.
The next day, the White House went ahead with a “White House Roundtable Affirming Transgender Kids.”
This was an opportunity for domestic policy adviser Susan Rice to use children as props in a cynical political stunt aimed at demonizing Republicans in red states who have passed laws to protect kids from sex hormones and experimental gender surgery.
In doing so, the Republican legislatures and governors like Florida’s Ron DeSantis are in accord with the most up-to-date thinking in Europe.
Countries like Sweden, Finland, Belgium and England, hardly bastions of transphobia, have cracked down hard on the use of puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones and surgery for children, after finding that the interventions have done more harm than good and are not evidence-based.
But the Biden administration wasn’t going to let such pesky concepts interfere with its virtue-signaling.
On Saturday, while the White House roundtable kicked off, a different event was being held in Nashville, right next to the scene of the massacre.
There at the Covenant Presbyterian Church, the parents of 9-year-old Hallie Scruggs held a funeral for their only daughter in the sacred place where her father is pastor.
She was remembered as a “vibrant little girl who was well-loved and loved others.”
The same day, substitute teacher Cindy Peak, 61, received a final farewell just a few miles away, at Christ Presbyterian Church, where the congregation was told she “died a hero.”
On Sunday, at the same church, was the funeral for 9-year-old William Kinney, a keen baseball player who was remembered as “unfailingly kind, gentle when the situation called for it, quick to laugh, and always inclusive of others.”
Funerals will be held this week for the other victims of last week’s massacre: head of school Katherine Koonce, 60, and school custodian Mike Hill, 61, a “strong man of faith.”
Both are said to have given their lives trying to protect the children in their care.
Such selflessness is an alien concept to those who view everything through the lens of political advantage.
You can see that from the sociopathic lack of empathy exhibited by the White House as it plowed ahead with its transgender talking points, effectively valorizing the cause of the Nashville killer.
It cast as villains “conservative politicians [who] have advanced hundreds of anti-transgender laws in states across the country … putting the fundamental rights and freedoms of trans Americans at risk … Over half of transgender youth say they have seriously considered suicide in the last year because of the discrimination and rejection they face.”
The suicide narrative is a political cudgel used to silence opposition to this perverse medicalization and mutilation of healthy children.
But it is essential to the new political narrative Biden and his party have designed for the 2024 political cycle.
