Gay Nightclub Shooting Being Blamed on ‘Right-Wing’ Despite Police Not Declaring Motive

Tragic shooting already being politically weaponized by the left to demonize conservative opposition to Drag Queen Story Time and renew calls for gun control.

Mainstream media outlets are suggesting the mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Colorado Springs on Saturday that resulted in five dead and 18 injured is the result of the “ far-right” targeting Drag Queen Story Time.

The Colorado Springs Police Department have identified the suspect as 22-year-old Anderson Lee Aldrich during a press conference on Sunday, but did not suggest a motive.

That didn’t stop Law & Crime from pinning the blame on conservatives:

Officers did not suggest a motive. Club Q  had  scheduled several shows for Sunday , including a noontime event marketed as an all-ages drag brunch. Such shows became a lightning rod and punching bag for far-right figures,   resulting in harassment .

Notably, a man with the same name was previously arrested in June 2021 for threatening his mother with “ a homemade bomb, multiple weapons, and ammunition. ”

Police would not confirm if that same man was the Club Q shooter.

This tragic and senseless shooting is already being used to demonize conservatives and their legitimate criticism of grooming events such as Drag Queen Story Time, which has become a growing trend in the U. S.

The shooting has also fired up renewed calls by Democrats and activist groups for more gun control.

The Biden administration released a statement Sunday calling for an “ assault weapons ban” in the wake of the shooting.

“ Earlier this year, I signed the most significant gun safety law in nearly three decades, in addition to taking other historic actions. But we must do more. We need to enact an assault weapons ban to get weapons of war off America’s streets, ” Biden said in the statement.

In a sane society, the shooter alone would face blame and consequences for his own actions.

But given the new “ Alex Jones” precedent, it’s not farfetched to wonder if any conservative politicians or commentators will be sued for “ inciting” the shooter to commit violence.
