Anderson Lee Aldrich, the suspect in the deadly shooting over the weekend at an LGBTQ nightclub in Colorado Springs, identifies as non-binary and asks to be referred to as ‘Mx. Aldrich’ according to a court filing on Tuesday night.
The media and far-left politicians, groups and even celebrities have had their fingers pointed and screaming from the rooftops that this is entirely the fault of right-wing Conservatives.
.@laurenboebert you have played a major role in elevating anti-LGBT+ hate rhetoric and anti-trans lies while spending your time in Congress blocking even the most common sense gun safety laws.
You don’t get to “thoughts and prayers” your way out of this. Look inward and change. https://t.co/mxt6wFMVEv

The keyboards of the Left were on fire with hateful rhetoric against Conservatives since the shooting occurred. The only logical explanation the Left could come up with for the motive of the shooting was that the suspect was a Republican Conservative who was filled with hate against the LGBTQ community.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) released two different statements before some of the nation had even heard the news. Without knowing what the motive was, she stated, “As our nation marks Transgender Day of Remembrance, the House Democratic Caucus mourns the countless Americans stolen away by the scourge of transphobic violence, a crisis that continues to disproportionately harm trans people of color…..That fight remains more urgent than ever, as right-wing extremists target transgender Americans’ most fundamental rights and freedoms. Whether spouting dangerous rhetoric from cable news desks or openly bullying schoolchildren from the halls of power, MAGA Republicans are cruelly undermining the safety and well-being of our transgender community.”
It feels like we’re in an “upside down world” since Pelosi’s statements are the epitome of spouting dangerous rhetoric.
So what happens now that we know Mx. Aldrich wasn’t a right-wing extremist? We know there won’t be any apologies issued for the slanderous attacks against people like Tucker Carlson, Rep. Lauren Boebart (R-CO) and Florida Gov. Ron Desantis (R).
The truth is, the Left quite literally doesn’t know what to say or do now that their narrative has fallen apart.
CNN anchor’s reaction to finding out Colorado Springs gay night club shooter is “non-binary”: “I don’t know what to say about that.”

Now that we know more about the suspect’s identity and background, it’s time for the radical agenda pushers to acknowledge the truth. The New York Post broke a story on Tuesday about the suspect’s parents that portrays a much different picture than what the Left wanted us to think about Mx. Aldrich and his upbringing.
The story shares details of his father who was an MMA fighter, a porn star and at one point, hooked on crystal meth. The second wife of his father (not the suspect’s mother), was also a porn star. His mother also had a troubled past with multiple arrests on her record.
