NBC News Contributor Appears To Blame Daily Wire For Mass Shooting

Transgender activists have been vocal recently in their call for violence and “vengeance” against Christians and states like Tennessee, which have enacted laws to protect children from irreversible gender modification procedures and hormone treatments. The increased violent rhetoric foreshadowed a tragic incident Monday at a Nashville Christian school where a transgender individual took several lives, including three elementary school students.

A “Day of Vengeance” was recently organized by the Trans Radical Activist Network (TRAN), a group co-run by a former Democratic staffer. This group has been raising money for firearms training. The main event was scheduled to take place in Washington, D.C., with other events happening on the same day as the “Trans Day of Visibility.” One of the organizers, Bo Belotti, has a history of working with Democratic lawmakers on transgender policies.

Despite the FBI reporting that there were only two transgender individuals killed in hate crimes in 2021, TRAN has labeled the situation a “trans genocide.” The group has also explicitly targeted Nashville, where The Daily Wire, a conservative news outlet, is headquartered. However, there has been no indication of the “Day of Vengeance” event being canceled following Monday’s school tragedy.

Meanwhile, a Wayne State University professor, Steven Shaviro, has been suspended with pay after suggesting on social media that killing a right-wing speaker would be more “admirable” than shouting them down. While the professor has not explicitly called for violence, the university administration has condemned his language and sentiment.

Far-left actress and activist Jane Fonda has also faced backlash for recent comments made during an appearance on ABC’s The View, where she said “murder” was a way to fight back against the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. Social media users have noticed a link between her remarks and the Nashville shooting.

Americans must recognize the potential consequences of divisive and inflammatory rhetoric. The escalation of such discourse can contribute to an increasingly polarized society, where acts of violence may be viewed as justifiable responses to perceived injustices.

Activists and public figures should approach issues with a sense of responsibility and restraint. Using violent rhetoric or calls for “vengeance” can only exacerbate tensions and create an environment where meaningful dialogue and understanding become increasingly challenging.
