“On the Holmes Front,” with Frank Holmes
One of the most heinous crimes took place Monday, as a female-to-male transgender person broke into the Christian school she attended years earlier and murdered six people in cold blood — including three children. The student victims of mass murderer Audrey Hale, who called herself “Aiden,” were only nine years old. In 14 minutes, Nashville police located Hale, demanded she drop her weapons, then shot her dead when she refused to end the bloodshed.
A transgender person killed children, Christians were victims, and police were the heroes… but you’d never know that based on the reaction of the Left and the media.

Some prominent Democratic officials threatened to shoot more Christians. Others said the “transgender community” were the victims, or bent over backwards to apologize for not using the killer’s preferred pronouns.
Here are five of the worst reactions we’ve seen.
- Democrat spokeswoman threatens to shoot more Christians
While most people mourned the loss of six lives on Monday, a “moderate” Democrat’s spokesperson tweeted out a threat of more violence. Just hours after the bodies fell, Josselyn Berry — who was at the time the spokesperson for Arizona’s Democratic governor, Katie Hobbs — posted a picture of an actress from the 1980 movie Gloria pointing two guns at people with the message, “Us when we see transphobes.” Twitter deleted the message, but not before conservatives captured a screenshot.

The governor’s office threw Berry under the bus, saying, “The post by the Press Secretary is not reflective of the values of the administration.” With the writing on the wall, Berry resigned from the Democrat’s administration on Wednesday. But how did someone that violent ever get the job in the first place?

- Joe Biden talks about ice cream and gun grabbing
The Democrats’ terrible response went all the way to the top. Shortly after the shooting, President Joe Biden had a previously scheduled talk… but rather than open with words about the dead children, he decided to do a comedy set about how much he loves ice cream.
“My name is Joe Biden. I’m ‘Doctor’ Jill Biden’s husband. And I eat Jeni’s Ice Cream—chocolate chip,” he told the crowd, which laughed at the same jokes he’s told, word-for-word, for years on end. “I came down because I heard there was chocolate chip ice cream. By the way, I have a whole refrigerator full upstairs. You think I’m kidding. I’m not.”
“Dude legit has something wrong with him,” said the conservative comedians, the Hodge twins.

Biden tried to crack jokes again on Tuesday, when reporters asked him if he agree with Missouri Senator Josh Hawley that the shooter targeted Christians over their religious views. Biden joshed that if Hawley believes it, “I probably don’t then. No, I’m joking.”

The Democrats eventually exploited the mass shooting to push gun control. Biden falsely claimed that Hale had “two AK-47s” later in his speech on Monday.
“So, I call on Congress again to pass my assault weapons ban.” Hale had bought seven guns, all legally.
- The transgender community is under attack
When Biden wasn’t talking about himself or guns, his supporters were busy blaming the victims.
“Our hearts go out to the trans community, as they are under attack right now,” said White House spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre on Thursday. Christian children may have dodged bullets, but Jean-Pierre said the real threat came from “hateful, hateful bills” that prevent men from competing against girls in sports. Luckily, she went on, Biden “has said many times he has their backs. And he will continue to have their backs. And he will continue to fight for them.”

Conservatives came down on the Biden mouthpiece like a ton of bricks. “Honestly f–k off,” wrote Donald Trump Jr. (who did not hyphenate the f-bomb). Biden had shown “ZERO sympathy for the Christian children shot up by the trans sociopath” but “a lot of victim blaming and empathy for the” murderer.

Honestly fuck off, I’ve seen exactly ZERO sympathy for the Christian children shot up by the trans sociopath this weekend from the Biden Admin…
Instead, I’ve seen a lot of victim blaming and empathy for the sociopathy coming from a growing militant part of this community. https://t.co/LK3Rl2OJAf

Coddling the transgender community that shaped the killer’s mind was a regular theme in the media, as well. NBC News’s gay-focused news service “Out News” said, “Fear pervades Tennessee’s trans community amid focus on Nashville shooter’s gender identity.”
But Christians were the ones whose children didn’t come home at night. And Christians were the ones targeted by Hale and by members of the Democratic Party. Shouldn’t NBC report about their fear? Shouldn’t the White House’s heart go out to them?
- Obsessing over the killer’s preferred pronouns
When the media didn’t worry about whether shooting kids would hurt transgender people, they went hog wild trying to protect the feelings of a dead child murderer.
The New York Times attacked Nashville police for using feminine pronouns for a biological female.
“There was confusion later on Monday about the gender identity of the assailant in the Nashville shooting,” the Times tweeted. “Officials had used ‘she’ and ‘her’ to refer to the suspect, who, according to a social media post and a LinkedIn profile, appeared to identify as a man in recent months.

USA Today did the same. “Police on Monday afternoon said that the shooter was a transgender man. Officials had initially misidentified the gender of the shooter,” the paper snarked. CNN quietly edited the story to change every use of female pronouns.
“Have to respect the school shooters pronouns,” said Chloe Cole, a teenage girl who once considered herself transgender but changed her mind…after surgeons removed both her breasts. Others called the papers’ focus “utterly insane”…not to mention disrespectful to the heroes, who ran toward the gunfire.

- The murderer was a ‘whimsical’ artist with a ‘childlike’ soul
Just protecting a transgender kid-killer wasn’t enough for some in the liberal media: They had to make her a hero.
“Nashville shooter Audrey Hale’s art was ‘childlike’ and she ‘could have done kids’ books,’” screamed a headline featured Wednesday in the British newspaper, The Mirror.
Not only did the media hold her up as a cross between Bob Ross and Dr. Seuss, but it lied about her light-hearted artwork.
Hale actually drew a nightmarish homage to Jack Nicholson’s character in The Shining, who goes insane and attempt to murder his family.

The creepy image puts the movie’s famous phrase “REDRUM” (murder spelled backwards) in its center.
“Do you know who else could have been a children’s illustrator? All of those people Audrey Hale gunned down in cold blood,” one commenter replied to the newspaper on Twitter. “She is not the victim here.”

Americans are the victims of a sick “news” media so committed to advancing left-wing politics that they will protect a mass child murderer if she falls into one of the “right” categories, like being “LGBTQIA+.”
Left-wing commentators posing as journalists will always find a way to demonize the police while spitting on the graves of Christian teachers, parents, and children.
No matter what the fake news media have to say, The Horn will never forget: The children and their families are the real victims, and the police are real heroes, who deserve our thanks, our tears, and our prayers.
