Tucker Carlson spits some truly evil garbage on trans people in ‘Christianity’ rant

Tucker Carlson took to a mass shooting in Tennessee to spread vile and dangerous anti-transgender hatred on Tuesday, joining a chorus of other prominent right-wingers.

Moving well away from the issue of gun control, the Fox News host instead sought to view Monday’s violence as evidence of a war between Christians and transgender people. The 28-year-old gunman, who authorities identified as trans, killed six people at a private Christian school they attended before the assailant was shot dead by police.

“Why are some trans people so angry, and why do they seem angry, in particular, at mainstream Christians? We can’t think of any trans people who have ever been murdered by a pastor,” Carlson said.

Pushing his “us versus them” rhetoric, Carlson then suggested that trans people and Christians are “natural enemies” who can never be reconciled.

“The trans movement is the mirror image of Christianity and therefore its natural enemy,” he said. “In Christianity, the price of admission is to admit that you are not God. Christians openly admit that they have no real power over anything, for that matter.

“The trans movement takes the opposite view. The trans ideology claims dominance over nature itself,” he said. “‘We can change the identity we were born with.'”

“They can never be reconciled. They are on a collision course with each other. One side is likely to draw blood before the other,” he said. “Yesterday morning, tragically, our fears have been confirmed.”

Nashville police reported that Hale was assigned female at birth, but used male pronouns on social media platforms. The shooter’s gender identity, however, remains unclear.

Transgender people are more than four times more likely than cisgender people to be victims of violent crime, according to a 2021 study by the Williams Institute at UCLA Law School.

Carlson has been one of the leading voices in a right-wing hate campaign against transgender people and drag queens in recent years, coinciding with a marked increase in discrimination and violence against the LGBTQ community and the adoption of an array of anti-LBGTQ laws in Republic-controlled legislatures across the country.

The number of transgender homicides nearly doubled from 2017 to 2021, mostly due to gun violence, according to a report by nonprofit group Everytown for Gun Safety.
