The media tracked the Colorado Springs shooter’s dad down in San Diego. His name is Aaron Brink and he’s a former porn actor and meth addict. He thought his son was dead until last year when he called him after he got arrested for kidnapping and threatening to kill his mom. His ex-wife had told him he had committed suicide. After his son’s attorneys called him to let him know his son shot people in a gay bar, his first thought was “Oh no! Is he gay? I’m a Mormon, a conservative Republican, we don’t do gay.” He was more concerned that his estranged son was gay than a murderer. Brink is also a former professional boxer. He taught his son when he was little that violence was good and being gay was bad.
The shooter’s attorneys say their client is nonbinary so people will feel sorry for him. He was so conflicted about his own sexuality he shot up a gay nightclub. They may have tipped the media off as to the existence and whereabouts of the dad to garner more sympathy. No wonder their client did what he did. Just look at his dad! And what about that lunatic MAGA Republican grandfather? It’s not his fault! Being nonbinary and a member of hateful MAGA family is a plot, not a defense.
Pro-hate rhetoric, lies and inflammatory language by Republicans and the right wing media was the precursor to the Club Q shooting. When will any of the Republicans be prosecuted for hate speech?
Club Q is on the Republicans. They refuse to pass laws so that nobody can own an AR-15 and they have demonized the LGBTQ community in their official capacity as legislators. They incite violence against the gay community.
Somebody spray painted, “Their blood is on your hands. Five lives taken” on the stone work above the signage at the entrance of “Focus on the Family” in Colorado Springs.
Congresswoman Lauren Boebert says she’s a victim of the Club Q shooting. “I’ve been accused of just about every mass shooting there has been. I’ve been blamed for all of it. It has to come to an end. The Left is pissed I won my election, so they’re trying to find something to go after me about.”
Lauren Boebert didn’t call for the violence to end. She called for the woke attacks against her to end.
The Denver Post blamed Lauren Boebert for the Club Q shooting because she has elevated hateful speech against LGBTQ people.
Evangelical preachers, right wing pundits and Republicans celebrated the Club Q mass shooting. They said the shooter was doing the lord’s work. One of Trump’s attorneys, Jenna Ellis, said that the “people killed in the nightclub that night, there is no evidence that they were Christians. Assuming they have not accepted the truth, affirmed Christ as the lord of their life they are now reaping the consequences of eternal damnation.”
There has been at least one mass shooting per day in the past week. One of them was outside a high school right after school let out for Thanksgiving. 4 students were shot and killed. Not a single week in 2022 has passed without at least 4 mass shootings. These shootings are not being committed by undocumented immigrants. Or women. This is a violent epidemic involving white men. The question needs to move from being what motivates an individual to kill innocent people all at once to why are white men killing so many innocent people all at once? There is a reason besides Republicans practically handing them AR-15s and telling them to go do it. Why do they do it?
Here’s how to get Republicans to finally ban AR-15s: Give every Black person in America an AR-15 and a membership card to a Black’s only club, “Separate but Equal.” That would put an end to that.
Crime coverage on Fox News has died down now that the midterms are over. And by crime, they don’t mean white male mass shooters with a Fox News ideology. They mean immigrants and Black people.
