Homosexual Activist: DeSantis to Blame for CO Shooting

In Brief: 

During an interview with NBC following the recent tragic shooting in Colorado, GLAAD CEO Sarah Kate Ellis blamed conservative politicians like Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) and Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) for what happened. She claimed that they “have to stop spreading lies. These are lies that they’re spreading and they’re causing pain and death and murder against our community, in addition to insufficient gun safety in this country.” 

Colorado already has some of the most strict gun laws in the nation, and the alleged shooter identifies as “non-binary” and identifies as “they/them,” according the shooter’s attorney.

The Background: 

On the night of the shooting, a gunman entered Club Q, an LGBTQ nightclub in Colorado Springs, and immediately opened fire on the crowd. At least five people were killed, and another 25 injured. Several patrons inside the club confronted the gunman and were able to subdue him before he continued his rampage. 

The alleged shooter identifies as non-binary and goes by the pronouns they/them. However, that did not stop the liberal left from blaming conservatives for the actions  and motives of this individual. The left claims it was the rhetoric of the Republican party that led to this “hate crime,” although there is no known motive at this time. 

But that did not stop commentator Chris Hayes, host of MSNBC’s “All In,” from claiming  that DeSantis is to blame.  Hayes tried to tie Desantis to the attack, siting the Florida Governor’s concerns about transgender surgeries for children and support for the Parental Rights in Education law. 

Notable Quotes: 

"Words matter. Words matter and people like Lauren Boebert who, you know, has been in the forefront of dissing LGBTQ+ people is now saying her prayers and thoughts go with the families. Well, they don’t really need your prayers and thoughts. They needed your votes. That’s what they needed. -- Whoopi Goldberg
