The right went absolutely giddy over the Nashville Christian school shooting. It fulfilled two important obsessions of theirs, the shooter embodied their bête noire du jour, transgenderism, and, for a change, the shooter was not one of theirs, a "straight" white male. The New York Post's cover headline of the shooting clearly illustrates these obsessions, that the shooter was transgender, and was not one of "them"... and the cover was also the inspiration for the following piece illustrating some of the more infamous right-wing terrorist attacks of the past decade...

Tucker Carlson on transgender shooter: Yesterday’s massacre did not happen because of lax gun laws. Yesterday’s massacre happened because of a deranged and demonic ideology that is infecting this country

Right-wing podcast host Liz Wheeler: This is what Queer Theory was intended to do: create a new vanguard of supposedly ‘oppressed’ LGBTQ people to stage a neo-Marxist revolution against the cishetereopatriarchal Christian ‘oppressors.’ Trans grooming is working.

Newsmax host Greg Kelly: Looking at the data, looking at recent history, it would seem that transgender is potentially more of a threat if applied recklessly than, say, white supremacy, OK? We have actual documented episodes where we don't have them from white supremacists over the past recent history.

The Federalist CEO Sean Davis: The trans cult is the most deadly and dangerous violent terrorist group in America per capita, and it’s not even close.

The Daily Wire’s Candace Owens: When you play Frankenstein with people’s body’s parts, you can’t be surprised when they behave like monsters. A person willing to execute violence upon his/her own body will not hesitate to impart violence onto someone else’s.

Right Wing Terrorism

A crucial factor of all these right-wing terrorist attacks that has not being addressed by the media, liberal or otherwise, or by politicians is the anti-leftist foundation behind the attacks. Most all of the terrorists’ “manifestos”, from Christchurch to El Paso to Buffalo cite Anders Behring Breivik as an inspiration for their attack. Breivik is the Norwegian anti-leftist, anti-socialist, anti-feminist terrorist who massacred 77 of his white Norwegian countryman at a Workers’ Youth League summer camp in 2011. So, why did he kill 77 white, mostly teenage, Norwegians… because they were socialists, he targeted white teenage socialists. This is not meant to ignore or belittle the racial, ethnic, and antisemitic motivation of the Buffalo, Christchurch, El Paso, and Tree of Life synagogue terrorists but it is easier and less complicated for the media to portray the terrorists as racist then to try and explain, or deal with, the more complex foundational anti-leftist motivation behind the attacks.

The right's hatred of and hostility towards the left is not limited to mass shootings. There have been numerous incidents of right-wingers targeting left-wing protesters. From Kyle Rittenhouse and Daniel Perry shootings of white Black Lives Matter protesters to the St. Louis McCloskeys brandishing guns and threatening BLM protesters from their front lawn to motorists plowing into crowds of left-wing protesters under the banner of “All Lives Splatter”.

Republicons have a particular hatred of Democrats, they view them as evil, as godless commies, and over the years have targeted specific Democrats with threats of violence. In March of 2010 Sarah Palin's PAC posted this image feauring a map of 20 targeted Democratic electoral districts on her facebook page with the text...

With the president signing this unwanted and “transformative” government takeover of our health care system today with promises impossible to keep, let’s not get discouraged. Don’t get demoralized. Get organized! Take Back the 20!

We’ll aim for these races and many others. This is just the first salvo in a fight to elect people across the nation who will bring common sense to Washington. [emphasis mine]

After some pushback and negative press about the "crosshair" symbols Palin's surrogates frantically tried to clean things up by claiming that they were "surveyor’s symbols", although Palin herself in a tweet called them "bull's eyes". At a campaign event in January of 2011 Jared Lee Loughner attempted to assassinate one of those Democrats on the list, Representative Gabby Giffords.

“Hate America leftists want to take this country down” states Marjorie Taylor Greene's Facebook post announcing her candidacy for Congress which featured an image of her holding an assault rifle pointed at Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlai threatening "to go on the offense against these socialists who want to rip our country apart."

Real Americans

"This is our country not theirs. We are the real Americans" stated a Trump 2020 campaign newsletter [the underline is how it appeared in the newsletter]. The same sentiment was echoed by the Tea Party after the election of Obama with the refrain "We want our country back", i.e. a country without an 'illegitimate', Kenyan born, Black president. After Clinton was elected president some Reagan apparatchik claimed that Clinton was an illegitimate president because "the presidency belongs to us", namely, to us Republicans. "They" believe this is their country, that they are the "real Americans", therefore they are entitled to control it. This is their justification, their rationale for...

gerrymandering:
I think electing Republicans is better than electing Democrats. So I drew this map to help foster what I think is better for the country. -North Carolina Rep. David Lewis, who oversaw the drawing of the state’s gerrymandered maps
voter supression laws:
If you took Madison and Milwaukee out of the state election formula we would have a clear majority, we would have all five constitutional officers and we would probably have many more seats in the Legislature. -Robin Vos, Republican Speaker of Wisconsin Statehouse
election denialism:
God Bless President Trump. Real America knows this is all a sham. -Jim Jordan (R-Ohio)
Democrats and the liberal media do a disservice to this reality by claiming that voter suppression is due only to race, not that there isn't an underlying element of anti-blackness sentiment, but the primary motivation is the suppression of the Democratic vote and seeing as Blacks vote 92% Democratic suppressing the Black vote is suppressing a major faction of the Democratic vote.
