Candace Owens took to Twitter to weigh in on the Texas school shooting, spreading transphobia and fake news.
"Candace Owens took to Twitter to weigh in on the Texas school shooting, spreading transphobia and fake news. After the shooting on Tuesday, photos of a young trans woman circulated online, with many users accusing her of being the shooter, Indy 100 reports. Users on Reddit and 4chan started spreading false information, circulating pictures of the woman and saying they were pictures of Ramos. The young woman took to her own social media to assert that she was not the shooter, who is now deceased. “It’s not me, I don’t even live in Texas,” she wrote alongside a picture of herself on Reddit.
The 33-year-old conservative talk show host tweeted that Ramos allegedly being transgender correlated with significant mental health issues that ultimately pushed Ramos to enter Robb Elementary with a gun. “What’s drives an 18 year old to murder innocent children?” she questioned on Twitter. "judging by the photos of him cross-dressing, we can assume there were plenty of signs that he was mentally disturbed and abused by adults in his life. Societal cowardice ignored those plenty of signs.” Some viewers were quick to correct her in the replies."
Yea, she was corrected in the replies, but it didn't stop her from continuing to spread dangerous disinformation -- almost as if she had an agenda.....that whole societal cowardice thing, just simply means -- gay/trans kids aren't bullied enough or shamed enough into hiding who they are for the appeasement of others......It's clear by now that Candace's grift is to tell racist-homophobic-xenophobic morons the lies they want to hear -- while they pat her on the head and call her one of the "good ones" -- there is a famous saying that came from the Civil Rights movement about vapid people like Candace....which is; she would have been one of those that Harriet Tubman had to leave behind....but MLK said it like this.....
but the larger point is this....why engage in OBVIOUSLY DANGEROUS DISINFORMATION if your only excuse is "but but but what about blah blah blah" - if your only defense for fucking up is to always justify it by pointing to your belief that "they do it too" -- then how are you any different?
What was the goal? If someone dresses differently than you, if someone who is a boy but decides to identify as a girl -- that person should now be targeted and demonized?? That person is going to be a mass shooter now? If so....I guess retired NBA Hall Of Famer's Magic Johnson's son should have had a mass shooting or 2 under his belt...if that is all it takes....
Or this other future NBA Hall of Famer......his son is still of school age....he should be isolated and banned from attending any school....because look at him.....he is going to shoot a class room of kids any minute now...Candace told us so...
I mean, it does make it even easier to dehumanize and demonize these people if we also attribute to them that they are mass shooters waiting to happen.....it's easy and to the point..anyone who identifies as a different gender than what they were assigned at birth, or just anyone who dresses as a woman...that person is obviously, mentally ill -- but even worse, evil and a potential murderer;
