Merrick Garland, the woke US Attorney General, has not classified the Nashville school massacre committed by a trans man last week as a hate crime, leading Republican lawmakers to prompt him to do so.
Not Humbled by Nashville Bloodbath
On March 27, a 28-year-old woman named Audrey Hale, who recently started identifying as “Aidan,” committed mass murder at the Covenant Presbyterian School, a private Christian school in Nashville, Tennessee.
The heavily armed attacker was carrying two semi-automatic rifles and a handgun. She managed to kill three nine-year-old students and three older staffers before two Nashville cops hunted her down in a shootout.
Now, the far-left thugs seem to have been emboldened. They invaded the state Capitols of Kentucky and Tennessee and tried to stage a “Trans Vengeance” march in Washington, DC.
The latter got canceled due to safety concerns, but on March 31, Sleepy Joe did issue a proclamation declaring it the “Day of Trans Visibility.”
Turns out the transgender female who murdered 6 in Nashville planned her hate crime FOR MONTHS.
And while Joe Biden found time in the past week to remind us that trans people "shape our nation’s soul" he's yet to offer a single word of solace to Christians.

What happened in Nashville was a hate crime.
But the media will focus on gun control and the "plight of transgender people" instead.

Radical Left Attacks on Christians Have ‘Led’ to Children’s Murder
While Biden’s Justice Department usually rushes to proclaim anything a hate crime as long as it affects any leftists, AG Merrick Garland kept silent on the Nashville slaughter.
Two Republican Reps. – Lance Gooden of Texas and Andy Ogles of Tennessee – have now publicly urged Garland to declare the Nashville shooting as a hate crime, The Hill reported.
In their appeal to Biden’s AG, Ogles and Gooden pointed out the Covenant school in Nashville was actually an extension of the local church building. They insisted the nature of the Christian church and school played a role in motivating the “trans man” attacker.
The two GOP lawmakers reminded Garland that religion is among the factors recognized as the possible reasons behind hate crimes.
They decried “anti-conservative rhetoric and constant attacks” against Christians in the United States by the “radical left,” which has now led to the shocking murders of three school children and three adult staffers.
