Republicans are finally laying down the law. Joe Biden is losing his mind.
And this bombshell Congressional investigation left Joe Biden screaming.
Democrats have been trying to spin a narrative around the Nashville shooting that lays the blame at the feet of Republicans.
They say that conservatives refusing to ban certain firearms and take away Americans’ rights is the rightful cause of awful atrocity.
In reality, they don’t want to highlight the fact that the 28 year-old transgender-identifying shooter specifically targeted a Christian school.
And Republicans in Congress aren’t letting the Left get away with brushing past that.
Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., has asked federal authorities to look into the tragic Covenant School shooting as a federal hate crime.
“Yesterday the nation witnessed the vicious murder of small schoolchildren in Nashville, Tennessee,” the senator wrote in a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.
“It is commonplace to call such horrors ‘senseless violence.’ But properly speaking, that is false. Police report that the attack here was ‘targeted’—targeted, that is, against Christians.”
“The full resources of the federal government must be brought to bear to determine how this crime occurred, and who may have influenced the deranged shooter to carry out these horrific crimes,” Hawley continued.
“Hate that leads to violence must be condemned. And hate crimes must be prosecuted.”
According to Fox News, the senator’s letter follows the Monday massacre at Nashville’s Covenant School, where a biological woman who reportedly identified as a transgender man killed three adults and three children: nine-year-old Evelyn Dieckhaus, nine-year-old Hallie Scruggs, nine-year-old William Kinney, 61-year-old Cynthia Peak, 60-year-old Katherine Koonce, and 61-year-old Mike Hill.

Audrey Hale, armed with two rifles and a handgun, shot through the school’s secured door at 10 a.m. on Monday, according to Fox. Hale then allegedly went upstairs to the second floor and opened fire.
According to The Tennessean, police officers first got the 911 call at 10:13 a.m. Rex Engelbert and Michael Collazo of the Metro Nashville Police Department were among the scores of cops who went to the building. Engelbert and Collazo had knocked out the shooter by 10:24 a.m.

They rushed to the sound of gunfire, put rounds on target and stopped Audrey Hale's horrific massacre.

In response to Hawley’s demand, President Biden laughed about the possibility of the shooting being a hate crime.
When told that Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) believed the attack was directed against Christian believers, Biden’s reaction was unusual.
“Well, I probably don’t, then,” Biden said, chuckling after the remark, and then adding, “No, I’m joking. No, I have no idea.”
Classy, Mr. President…classy.
