White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre sparked outrage after she praised Transgender children who “fight back” following the recent Nashville shooting carried out by a trans individual just weeks ago.
Like many on the left, Jean-Pierre doubled down on their support of transgender ideology in the wake of the shooting.
The White Press Secreaty also blasted Republican legislation preventing transgender medical procedures on minors, arguing it was only “gender-affirming” health care, Fox News reported.
Jean-Pierre described the legislation as “a dangerous attack on the rights of parents to make the best health care decisions for their own kids,” adding, “LGBTQI+ kids are resilient. They are fierce. They fight back. They’re not going anywhere. And we have their back. This administration has their back.”
She then praised “kids across this country who have organized protest and school walkouts to tell the politicians in their states to stop this legislative bullying.”
“Fight back” is not good choice of words if Jean-Pierre were to consider that parents and the local community in Nashville are still reeling from the horrific targeted attack carried out by a transgender individual.
There was quite a backlash on Twitter too.
“A trans person killed three Christian children just over a week ago and now the White House is now telling them to fight back,” State Freedom Caucus Network communications director Greg Price tweeted.
“Quite a choice of words,” Republican communicator Matt Whitlock tweeted.
One commentator accused the White House of covering the trans shooter, saying, “‘ They’re going to fight back and the administration will have their back.’ Yep that’s pretty much exactly what happened with the shooting.”
“This kind of rhetoric helped cause Nashville… At least by liberals’ own logic,” Conservative writer Pradheep J. Shanker wrote, tagging Jean-Pierre in the tweet.
Conservative meme account Mostly Peaceful Memes also called Jean-Pierre’s rhetoric:
Earlier this week, Jean-Pierre was asked whether the Nashville school shooting constituted a “hate crime” given that Christians were targted.
The White House Press Secretary responded, “It’s not for us to decide.”
