Predatory Globalists Exploit Colorado Tragedy To Advance Their Agendas.

Yesterday's shooting in Colorado Springs, Colorado left five people dead and at least 25 injured. Although the tragedy happened inside a gay bar, it's unknown if that was a factor in the crime. The attacker, Anderson Lee Aldrich, is in custody and police haven't said if Aldrich has made any statements on what drove him to violence. Since this is all we really know at the moment, this is all that the news media should be reporting. But instead of stating the known facts and waiting for more information to come in, the news media and leftist politicians are once again exploiting a tragedy to advance agendas.
As if reading from the same script, the globalist-owned news sites are trying to portray the incident as an anti-gay hate crime. However there is no evidence to support this claim at this time. There are a number of reasons people commit violence against others, and most are not "hate crimes", a term used by left-wing extremists to influence our thoughts and behaviors. We don't know if Aldrich is a former employee of Club Q. If so, was he fired, meaning his violence was possibly directed at the club owners? Is Aldrich gay, meaning the attack wasn't the result of prejudices? Was Aldrich angry at a particular group of patrons inside the club? We don't know the answers to any of these questions, but the news media isn't even asking.
Instead, the propagandists at left-leaning Nexstar Media said "The latest incident occurred as anti-gay rhetoric has intensified by extremists. In a statement, Club Q termed the shooting a hate attack." But in the next paragraph they admit "The motive behind Saturday’s shooting was not immediately known." They then mention that Colorado Springs is the home of Focus on the Family, a prominent evangelical Christian ministry. Why would they say that? Are they trying to connect a Christian ministry to a shooting?
Not to be outdone, the Associated Press said "Drag events have become a focus of anti-LGBTQ rhetoric and protests recently as opponents, including politicians, have proposed banning children from them, falsely claiming they're used to “groom” children." They left out the part that no drag show was taking place at the time of the shooting, and no children were involved. AP's comment is an obvious attempt to smear conservatives who oppose having children exposed to drag queens, something any responsible parent should oppose. The AP is desperately trying to imply that conservative parents have created an atmosphere of intolerance that led to Aldrich becoming radicalized and violent. But they offer no evidence to support their veiled claim. The AP report also lists several other incidents going back several years in an effort to create the larger image that anti-gay violence by white supremacists is a national problem that must be addressed.
Let me repeat: "The motive behind Saturday’s shooting was not immediately known." Yet the propaganda press is piling on to create a narrative where none is known to exist.
Of course we all know the next step in the process: gun control.
Kevin Jennings of Lambda Legal said "America’s toxic mix of bigotry and absurdly easy access to firearms means that such events are all too common and LGBTQ+ people, BIPOC communities, the Jewish community and other vulnerable populations pay the price again and again for our political leadership’s failure to act."
And White House resident Joe Biden once again called for a ban on assault rifles, even though it's not known what kind of gun was used in the shooting. Witnesses described it only as a "long gun".
But rather than exploit a tragedy to advance an agenda, let's get the answers to these questions:
Why didn't the club have any security screening at the front door? How did a gunman get in?
Where is the video coverage of the shooting? So far all I've seen are images of police cars, ambulances, and yellow crime scene tape. Were there no cameras inside or outside the club?
And finally, how did Anderson Lee Aldrich obtain a gun? According to reports, "a man with that name was arrested in 2021 after his mother reported he threatened her with a homemade bomb and other weapons, authorities said. They declined to elaborate on that arrest. No explosives were found, authorities said at the time, and The Gazette in Colorado Springs reported that prosecutors did not pursue any charges and that records were sealed." So Aldrich was known to local law enforcement as a potentially dangerous person, but somehow he obtained a gun. Why were his records sealed? This normally happens in mental health cases or in cases involving minors. Why do so many of America's mass shootings involve young men who are known to the police or the FBI prior to them committing crimes?
The Colorado Springs shooting is tragic and shouldn't have happened. The patrons of the bar weren't breaking any laws. They have the right to get together with friends and not worry about being killed in the process.
But it is dishonest and disgusting for the news media to spread misinformation and attempt to create a false narrative in the aftermath of a tragedy. And Joe Biden should be ashamed of himself for using people's suffering as an excuse to push for the disarming of the American people.
