After the terrible shooting the other day at a Colorado Springs gay nightclub that left five dead and many more injured, Lauren Boebert expressed condolences on Twitter, just like many politicians.
Boebert said the news was awful and that the victims and families are in her prayer.
She also suggested in the same tweet that this lawless violenced needs to end quickly.
The news out of Colorado Springs is absolutely awful.
This morning the victims & their families are in my prayers.
This lawless violence needs to end and end quickly.

You might be thinking there’s absolutely nothing contoversial about this tweet.
And you’d be right unless you’re a hateful leftist like AOC, who literally accused Boebert of culpability in this horrific shooting:
.@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

Over the weekend Fred T posted on how the left was trying to use this shooting to score points against their enemies on the right, like Matt Walsh and Libs of Tiktok.
All of this is ridiculously absurd. I don’t yet know the motiviation of the crazy who shot up the gay nightclub, but I don’t need to know it to understand that what the left is doing here is completely unmoored from the truth.
Look, I’m against the entire LGBT movement and I make that plain right here on TRS. But just becuase some a-hole goes and kills people who live a lifestyle I disagree with doesn’t mean I have anything to do with it. I don’t wish harm or death on any of these people and neither does Matt Walsh, Libs of Tiktok or Lauren Boebert.
Disagreeing with the LGBT movement and exposing it’s harmful effects on children has nothing to do with the shooting. It’s preposterous to even suggest something like this, but that’s what the left wants to claim in order to try and silence the right. That’s what all of this is about.
