On Monday, March 27, as the April 1 “Trans Day of Vengeance” approached, Audrey Hale, a woman who thinks she’s a man, shot open a locked door and entered the Covenant School in Nashville, Tennessee.
In 14 minutes, Hale fired 152 rounds from an AR-15–style rifle and 9mm Kel-Tec SUB2000. Hale shot dead Evelyn Dieckhaus, 9, Mike Hill, 61, William Kinney, 9, Katherine Koonce, 60, Cynthia Peak, 61, and Hallie Scruggs. That nine-year-old was the daughter of Chad Scruggs, senior pastor at the Covenant Presbyterian Church, on the same site as the school.
With six people dead, including three children, Hale’s attack qualifies as a mass murder, and in any murder case, the question of motive is paramount. Hale left clues in a manifesto, but trans-friendly activists sought to suppress its release. For example, Charles Moran, of Log Cabin Republicans, advocates for equal rights for LGBTQ+ Americans, warned of “serious consequences” if the manifesto was released to the public.
Enter Nashville city councilman Robert Swope, who worked as Tennessee state director for Donald Trump in 2016 and now heads the city council’s Public Safety, Beer and Regulated Beverages Committee. Swope told the New York Post that the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit is working “in tandem” with the Metro Nashville Police Department to complete “a very in-depth analysis of certain aspects of the shooter’s life.”
According to the councilman, “the manifesto is going to be released. It’s just a matter of when. There are some incredibly brilliant psychological minds and psychological analysts combing through her entire life.” While revelations await, one fact is perfectly clear.
The FBI, supposed on guard 24/7 against domestic terrorism and violent extremism, failed to prevent Audrey Hale’s attack. Relatives of the victims have reason to wonder what the FBI knew and when they knew it.
The “Trans Day of Vengeance” openly served up the prospect of violence. In advance of this heavily promoted event, was the FBI tracking any person of interest who purchased multiple semi-automatic firearms? According to Nashville police, Hale planned the attack for months, “documenting plans to commit mass murder at the Covenant School.”
With all its money, resources and allegedly brilliant minds, was the FBI profiling anyone who issued threats against “transphobes” in general or Christian schools in particular? Past cases give the people cause to wonder.
In 2009, Maj. Nidal Hasan, a U.S. Army psychiatrist, was communicating with al Qaeda terrorist Anwar al Awlaki about killing Americans. As Lessons from Fort Hood, explains, the FBI knew all about it but someone in the FBI’s Washington office judged that Hasan was not a threat and called off the surveillance.
On November 5, 2009, at Fort Hood, Texas, yelling “Allahu akbar” as he fired, Hasan murdered 13 unarmed American soldiers. The unborn child of Pvt. Francheska Velez brings the death count to 14. The Obama administration famously called this “workplace violence,” not terrorism or even gun violence. In his initial statement, vice president Biden said the soldiers “fell” in a “senseless tragedy” and failed to mention a single victim.
In similar style, the FBI did nothing to prevent the terrorist attack at San Bernardino in 2015 (14 dead) and Orlando in 2016, with 49 dead. Consider also the case of Bernie Sanders supporter James Hodgkinson, who was carefully tracking Republican legislators.
On June 14, 2017, as the representatives played baseball, Hodgkinson opened fire on them with an SKS 7.62 rifle and a 9mm pistol, wounding five and nearly killing Rep. Steve Scalise.
The FBI, then under Andrew McCabe, passed off Hodgkinson’s attack as “suicide by cop,” a ludicrous claim that drew criticism from Republicans and Democrats alike.
Hodgkinson shot first at unarmed civilians. Audrey Hale shot first at innocent children and the teachers and staff who sought to protect them. With Hale’s manifesto in the hands of the FBI, relatives of the victims might consider the FBI’s record of concealing evidence in murder cases.
In February of 2020, DHS whistleblower Philip Haney, author of See Something Say Nothing: A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Government’s Submission to Jihad, was found dead in Amador County, California. The local sheriff handed Haney’s computer, thumb drives and other materials to the FBI.
By 2023, the FBI had failed to make the material public, and at some point handed the investigation to the federal Customs and Border Protection (CPB), which has determined that Haney’s devices contained “contraband.” As this implies, the murder victim was a secret criminal, allied with foreign actors.
The Islamic terrorists Haney exposed would have motive to kill him, but no word from the FBI of any suspects. Consider also the case of Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich, a possible leaker of Hillary Clinton’s emails.
On July 17, 2016, Rich was gunned down on a Washington street. The FBI showed no interest in the basic questions of motive, means and opportunity, but quickly grabbed Rich’s laptop computer. In 2020, the bureau admitted that it possessed the computer and with the murder still unsolved the FBI seeks to delay release of the computer’s contents until 2088, a proxy for never.
For the FBI’s expertise in altering documents, consider the case of Kevin Clinesmith of the
Cyber Law Branch of the FBI’s Office of General Counsel in Washington, D.C. As the Department of Justice explains, “Clinesmith was assigned to provide legal support to FBI personnel working on Crossfire Hurricane,” the FBI’s covert operation against President Trump. Trump advisor Carter Page was a source for a U.S. government agency, the CIA.
Clinesmith altered an email to show that Page was “not a source,” exposing Page to surveillance by the FISA court. With materials relevant to the Nashville murders being suppressed, FBI deception becomes a factor.
Shooter Audrey Hale was white and murder victim Mike Hill was black, but racism failed to emerge as a possible motive. The Department of Justice, on alert for violent extremism, will not regard the mass murder in Nashville as a hate crime. On the establishment media side, CBS ordered staff not to describe Hale as trangender.
In his initial statement, Joe Biden said the shooting was “sick” and “heartbreaking” but failed to name a single victim. “We have to do more to stop gun violence,” said Biden, who called on Congress “to pass my assault weapons ban.” For the Delaware Democrat, as Victor Davis Hanson noted, “guns were the cause of the mass deaths, not the free will of a psychopathic killer.”
Three days after the mass murder White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre failed to name any of the victims or identify the murderer, Audrey Hale. The Biden mouthpiece did say “our hearts go out to the trans community as they are under attack right now.” In reality, they are on the attack.
As Matthew Boose notes in “Groomed to Kill,” the Democratic Party “is hellbent on feeding the malignant narcissism of the ‘trans community,’ in which they see a reliable, perpetually aggrieved voter base and a tool with which to terrorize society.” The trans community is an “unhinged cult that uses pseudoscience to main children,” and “like all totalitarian cults, the trans cult preys upon the youth.” And shoots them dead in school on a Monday morning.
Audrey Hale planned the attack for months, but her full manifesto has yet to be released. In the meantime, remember the Nashville Six and say their names: Evelyn Dieckhaus, Mike Hill, William Kinney, Katherine Koonce, Cynthia Peak, and Hallie Scruggs. The struggle of the people against trans violence is the struggle of memory against forgetting.
Where are Democrat tears for the Christians murdered by the Trans “activist” in Nashville? Their LGBTQ Brigades are no doubt too busy celebrating “diversity.”
Trans activist? More like freak of nature. Stop being nice callem what they are….FREAKS…..mentally ill loons.
I assure you I am not feeling nice right now. Audrey Hale was a 28-year-old Trans ideologue who was involved in the Satanic cult of LGBTQ ideology. She even admitted in a last-minute message to a friend that what she was about to do was “evil.”
Every Christian church in this country should have armed security for Easter services this coming Sunday. Tuesday, March 28 was Trans’ Day of Revenge on anyone who dares to reject this insane ideology.
As far as I’m concerned, those Trans activists I mentioned should be arrested and charged with conspiracy to commit sedition, treason, and in some cases, mass murder. THIS is an insurrection, and it must be mercilessly crushed.
ABC news shed some insight into how Democrats viewed the slaughter. ABC linked passage of child protection from drag queens and transgender surgery to why the slaughter happened.
So- in the minds of Democrats- the slaughter was justified. Also in their minds- it’s a great opportunity to make a fresh drive to repeal the 2nd amendment.
Dan Foster says
The majority of people killed by mass shooters in the US are Christian. Why haven’t you cared about that before it was politically expedient?
David Ray says
Not really. But it amuses the left to lie and say so.
My personal favorite was leftist idiots asserting that the OK city bomber, Tim McVeigh was “Christian”.
He wasn’t as he had said so, saying “science is my god”.
Curtis C says
The manifesto will answer these questions: how did she become radicalized? Who was she reading or listening to that put murder in her head? Who knew about her plans? What psychopathic signs were exhibited? Who assisted her gun buying and the high tech optics? Where did she learn how to shoot and target practice? Who taught her the attack plan? How did she decide when it was time to act?
August West says
For what it is worth I object to the use of the word Manifesto to describe the lunatic rantings of a crazed murdering lunatic. Suggest the less grandiose term Suicide Note. I feel several aspects of press coverage of these mass murder events draw prestige to the attacker and thus potentially motivate more such attacks. Referring to a Suicide Note as a Manifesto is one example of this.
Ralph Robert Jaeger says
How about “ tranifesto”?
Shame on you, you Transphobe, you!
Are you trying to “trigger” one of them with your “microaggression”?
Let’s see if this is marked and “awaiting moderation,” which I’ll bet it will be, as nearly every Reply I post here on FP is nowadays.
How about “murder note”?
Ed Cane says
How about, Admission of mental illness? Those folks are sick in the head. They’re fed by the permissive leftists… liberalism is a mental illness. Fact.
John Bumpus says
Nashville has always been a Democrat town/city–after all, Nashville was the hometown of Andrew Jackson (from the late 1700s) who is said to be one of the founders of the Democrat Party. But I remember Nashville as being a conservative city, and a very religious city (Nashville is still the headquarters of the Southern Baptist Convention, the largest Protestant denomination in the United States, although other Southern cities are also the home of other important SBC entities). But Nashville has changed in the last 20-30 years. In my opinion, ALL of the local television stations are now radical news outlets. Almost all of the newspapers are radical news organizations. Radical Democrats now control the local politics, and I don’t expect this to change. Through adroit redistricting, the Tennessee General Assembly caused Nashville to elect a Republican congressman last November for the first time maybe ever, but that is only because the county was divided and combined with other adjoining counties. There are many black voters in Nashville/Davidson County, and they always vote for the Democrat even if that person is a Marxist! It seems that Black voters in our country wherever they are just do not care if they vote even for a communist if he/she is a Democrat–just like what happened in Chicago earlier this week.
it’s happened in Atlanta Ga…… we have the same thanks to ballot stuffing and counting fake votes destroying the records and a Secretary of State whose book deal following the last presidential election had a “spit in the voter’s face” title “Integrity”…. he is currently busy with his own Trump indictment ……. It is difficult to live here and becoming far more communist then I can stomach.
I’ve only been to Atlanta once–on a 3-day business trip decades ago.
At the time Atlanta–headquarters of Coca Cola and Delta Airlines, then respected and internationally admired as two of the best-managed and -operated corporations in America–touted itself as the Southern city “too busy to hate.”
Since then there was an influx of “liberal” Northeasterners and Californians, attracted by Atlanta’s excellent business climate and then-modest cost of living.
Soon there was nary a “Southern” accent to be heard there, and no one could call Atlanta “Southern” at all.
As the Burmese Python in the Everglades and the kudzu in the bayous of Louisiana have done, an invasive, non-native species will prey upon, drive out, and eventually eliminate the native ones.
Which is what has also happened to Vermont since I attended college there 50 years ago, when it would have been unimaginable for a New York City Marxist to be elected Mayor of Burlington, much less U.S. Senator.
Diane mccutchen says
Sad but true description of present day Atlanta.
Georgia modernized its elections. They even had over 4,000 ballots with the same time stamp, to the second.

Because of the importance of the ‘trans’ movement to the Marxist Democrats political coalition, do not expect that ‘manifesto’ of the Covenant Presbyterian School ‘trans shooter’ to be released by the radical leftist Democrat Mayor of Nashville. The only way that the conservative media will ever obtain the aforesaid ‘manifesto’ of the Covenant School ‘shooter’ will be to file suit for it and have a Federal Judge order that it be released to the news media–and this will take several years to achieve which is exactly what the radical leftists have in mind. I think that it is all a sad and sorry state of affairs for a once very safe and a very nice city. And if it wasn’t for the Republicans who control the rest of the State (except for Memphis/Shelby County–the same sorry situation, only more so–but Tennessee’s other big cities are also trending in the same direction), Nashville would probably also now be the same kind of ‘hell hole’ that other big American cities are. I do not expect things to get better. I only expect things to get worse with time unless some kind of social earthquake occurs which cataclysmically changes everything.
The war has been waged against the Right in this country for years and we sit idly by waiting for someone to save us. We let them take ground on every front because we only know one way to live. They know two. We are unwilling to engage in the second, at least for now. God save us.
This is not just a war on the “right.” It’s a war on the center left and center right, only since November 2008 there are no more liberals in the Democratic Party.

Maybe then ordinary working people can return to the tolerance we once had rather than the division created by diversity.
so has charles moran seen it?
Don Davenport says
If there is any consolation over this tragedy it can be the perpetrator was shot dead. If she lived you can bet the defense would have painted her as the victim and the mainstream media would follow behind with pronouns and weepy violins. Radical LGBTQ groups would gather at the hearing to voice their support and in the end the murdering freak might have gotten a mere wrist slap.
David Ray says
The ugly bitch would’ve been eventually pardoned by a flaming idiot, the same way Slick Willie pardoned Kathy Boudin
One quibble. A tragedy is when a tornado rips through a populated area, this was an outrageous mass murder, primed by the propaganda of the left/msm/dems., and enabled and defended by the same.
Why wasn’t Hale on the FBI’s radar? Simple, it was devoting its resources to identifying and arresting anyone “parading” at the Capitol on 1/6/21, attending a school board meeting, or praying near an abortion clinic. I mean, law enforcement has to have its priorities, doesn’t it?
Brown Wolf says
Sad, but true. This world is upside down.
I have a suspicion that Hale was on the FBI radar. It wouldn’t surprise me to find out Hale had been interviewed by the FBI or in some way knew the FBI was on to her. Is there something in the “manifesto” that would reveal this was the case? If it is ever released it will surely be heavily redacted.
Maryanne Grey Dove says
I’m surprised that if it really was a “manifesto” it doesn’t exist somewhere in the vast cloudsphere. After all what good is a manifesto if it’s more like a diary? Also, is it just me or does anyone else feel that they were a lot safer when all these mooks were in the closet?
Good point. Do we not gave tech people who can find it? & why no leaks? They only leak against Trump!
Robert McClain says
Open war on Christians. Democrat Klansmen, abetted by the dictatorship, are about to unleash a slaughter upon Christian America. The dictatorship doesn’t want you to know that too soon…. therefore, they dare not release the manifesto.
Scott Norris says
They’ll probably never release it. T-genders are the preferred and special people now.
She is a product of the Education System.. goals 2000 was the communist takeover of eeducation which is why no teaching of the traditional 3 r’s just indoctrination to the Communist America hating Anti-Christ activism… they are indoctrinating all to be minions of the left. It is a sad sad day in America and it is not looking any brighter.
Sword of the Spirit says
A sick, warped, mentally ill, pervert of the first degree.
I think it is ok if adults decide they have some other gender, but they should not be pushing children to submit to mutilation by the scalpel or chemical means in order to fulfill their vision of changing genders. It is really just child abuse. Perhaps shooting children in a Christian school is simply an extension of the idea that physical violation of the bodies of other persons is justified by the worldview of freedom to choose who and what you are. It is not a good idea, to put it mildly.
If trans, gay, or others “victim groups” had truly valid complaints, they would seek non-discrimination and privacy not exhibitionism, rage and “vengeance.”
Some of us have family histories so horrific and family victimhood so unspeakably bad by evil thats is unimaginable and yet we live and cooperate with our neighbors. Our sorrow or anger about it is voiced in appropriate settings and times. There is no vengeance on children, teachers and strangers. This is because the suffering was real. It leads us to self examination, insight, questions about humanity and often a desire to give to others. To love.
Theres no one iota of that humanity in LGBTXYZ exhibitionism toward children, in the faked new group trans and their violence – much of it aimed at children and females. Some of this lack of love for all people applies to other well-paid victim groups.
It is all a scam.
Stephen Triesch says
My guess is that the FBI and law enforcement officials are working on a way to frame the contents of the manifesto in such a way as to place blame for the shootings on conservative critics of the transgender movement.
No doubt the Blue Cheka (fka FBI) is busy preparing the manifesto for publication by slathering it in blackout.
It would be kinda cool if someone in NPD leaked a copy of the “manifesto” to the public. That way, maybe we could prepare for the next LGBTQ temper tantrum. The very term “manifesto” is dripping with malignant narcissism, but HEY, her parents wouldn’t use the right pronouns! We’d like to know more, but it’s not likely we ever will.
People and places must defend themselves = it is OUR Right to do so…!
Hale shot out the glass entrance doors & walked in…!
Both sets of doors should be ~
1) impregnated with fine high tensil wire mesh
2) an alarm should go off in a breach wired to the main office and the local PD
3) 2 or 3 trained qualified persons should either be armed of have secure access to a loaded firearm ~ a retired military employed as a custodian be great
4) ALL other outer entrance doors are steel with 12″×12″ wndows @5ft on auto-lock intercom/buzzer system with cameras inside & out covering 360° that only unlock remotely by a main office camera viewer
5) ALL ground level windows are fine hi-tensil wire mesh impregnated shatter proof glass ~ locked at all times also remotely operated
6) classroom doors are steel safety door w/windows @5ft 12″×12″impregnated with fine hi-tensile wiremesh having regular inner locks ~ plus 2 deadbolts 1 @ 4ft & 1 at floor level
Since the “manifesto” probably outlines desires and plans to slaughter Christians in more than just this one location, and by more people than this monster, it seems likely it will never be released. The anti-American politicians do not want anything to interfere with The Agenda™ before it is too late to prevent its implementation.
Philip L horner says
This attack on civilization by the coddled sick mind is just missing a ‘mission accomplished ‘ sign.
Edward Teach says
They’re not releasing the “Manifesto ” because it reads like the Platform of The Democrat Party.
Verbal Bomb Chucker says
That PsychoTranny Manifesto will NEVER be seen by the public. It would show everyone just how NUTS the TrannyMob really is. We don’t need Gun Control, we need TrannyControl. Round them ALL up and put them ALL in Wacky Wards for LIFE.
