Rep. Candice Keller first accused Democrats of playing “the blame game,” then immediately started naming everything under the sun that Republicans don’t like as the cause for our now-daily shootings, including “transgender.”
Here’s the full text of what she blames in case you can’t read the screenshot:
The breakdown of the traditional American family (thank you, transgender, homosexual marriage, and drag queen advocates); fatherlessness, a subject no one discuses or believes is relevant; the ignoring of violent video games; the relaxing of laws against criminals (open borders); the acceptance of recreational marijuana; failed school policies (hello parents who defend misbehaving students); disrespect to law enforcement (thank you, Obama); hatred of our veterans (thank you, professional athletes who hate our flag and National Anthem); the Dem Congress, many members whom are open anti-Semitic; the culture, which totally ignores the importance of God and the church (until they elect a President); state officeholders, who have no interest whatsoever in learning about our Constitution and the Second Amendement; and snowflakes, who can’t accept a duly-elected President.
So, are actual drag queens to blame, or just their advocates?
Seeing the El Paso shooter is an avowed white supremacist and the Dayton shooter had a “rape list” of female classmates, it’s hard to figure out how things like “homosexual marriage,” immigrants, or “snowflakes” have any connection to the problem. But any excuse not to name white supremacy and toxic masculinity, right?
Though this Facebook post is particularly out there, the entire Ohio GOP is taking the same “anything but the real problems” stance, with Rep. John Becker posting a meme made by the “Three Percenters,” an anti-government militia and dangerous hate group.
If Candice Keller blaming trans-folks for the shooting wasn't bad enough, here's State Rep (and also candidate for Ohio Senate) John Becker posting a meme branded with a 3-percenter militia logo that blames shootings on a lack of school prayer & spanking, we think.#OHGOP #OHLeg pic.twitter.com/mY1Aan0CPA— Plunderbund (@plunderbund) August 5, 2019
Keller’s post, at least, seems to have been hidden from the public, though multiple news outlets have reported that it is still up. Meanwhile, Keller’s name is not a popular one on Twitter right now.
Candice Keller should resign after writing this letter. When a white nationalist (or two) go on a shooting spree killing dozens, she blames homosexuals, drag queens and fatherless marriages... irresponsible, incompetent, and absurd! Wtf GOP? Vote against the GOP! #GOP https://t.co/3QFDLklvbP— Ethan Dickenson (@ethandickenson7) August 5, 2019

I need to fight my parents for telling me an education and having intelligence were vital to being successful.
They obviously lied.

Also, she’s going to run for Senate.
I just said out loud, “I’d move and challenge her just to ensure her ass never sees the halls of the Statehouse again.” pic.twitter.com/4s9Lxit4Xg
