In the run-up to the national Trans Day of Vengeance last spring, Audrey Elizabeth Hale was busy planning a mass murder in Nashville. The 28-year-old woman, who wanted people to refer to her as a man, was deeply disturbed and under a doctor’s care for an “emotional disorder,”the nature of which her parents did not specify.
Shortly after Hale murdered three nine-year-old Covenant School children and three school employees on March 27, police found the woman’s manifesto and other personal materials, providing insights into her motive for the murders. But instead of releasing that information to the public, it’s been kept secret for more than seven months. Now, we know a little bit about why this young woman opened fire at the Presbyterian school.
According to the leaked pages from Hale’s manifesto, images of which were obtained by podcaster and commentator Steven Crowder, the woman hated children “going to fancy private schools.” Hale attended the school where she committed her mass murder.
The manifesto continues with Hale writing “Wanna kill all you little crackers!!!” Hale was white.
Hale also expressed disdain for her victims as a “Bunch of little faggots w/ your white privileges.” She embraced the LGBTQ agenda and parroted Critical Race Theory.
Somehow, this white woman who pretended to be a man and who was privileged to attend a private school became a person who hated white people, disparaged LGBTQ people, and those who attend private school with so much ferocity, she murdered six people.
If we take the words in Hale’s profanity-laced manifesto excerpts at face value, it appears she hated much about herself. Through some mechanism, Hale became so angry about things that represented herself and her life that she was driven to mass murder. Unfortunately, we don’t know much about that mechanism; authorities still refuse to let us know more about Hale’s motives.
What we do know is that schools across the nation have been teaching race hatred through Critical Race Theory, which has infected academic subject matter in astonishing ways. When the world is reduced to tribes of people who oppress – invariably white people; and people who are being oppressed – invariably people who are not white; it’s understandable how a young white woman might develop some degree of self-loathing.
LGBTQ ideology is also rampant in schools and culture, promoting anti-science delusions that deny genetics, anatomy, biology, physiology, endocrinology and every aspect of natural law. Through desperation or naiveté or something else, Audrey Hale and others like her were deceived by evil grown-ups into believing something they innately knew was false. They are led to believe and act out a lie, and many come to regret it once their common sense returns. Might Hale hated herself for falling prey to the deception?
Class warfare has been a core component of various totalitarian systems of government since the inception of Marxism, and people are repeatedly told that capitalism is evil while socialism is good. It’s not unreasonable to think that someone led to believe this false ideology might feel guilty over their success or that of their family. Whether it is enough guilt to trigger a mass murder or suicide-by-cop is unclear.
The implications of teaching race hatred, LGBTQ ideology and Marxism raise important questions. If young people like Audrey Hale are being radicalized by militant ideologies to the extent they are prompted to kill, people would want to know. There might be clues in Hale’s manifesto to help answer these questions but for now, we still don’t know because some people in authority do not want us to know.
The release of Hale’s complete manifesto would certainly reveal more about what was in the mind and heart of this tragically tormented woman. It might also tell us what caused her to become so violent and evil that she would open fire on grade school children and the Covenant School’s staff. But that’s not likely to happen without a concerted effort to compel the release of the manifesto.
Nashville Mayor Freddie O’Connellclaims to be, “deeply concerned with the safety, security, and well-being of the Covenant families and all Nashvillians who are grieving,” but when said in the context of also wanting to “initiate an investigation into how these images could have been released,” O’Connell’s deep concern rings a bit hollow.
The mayor’s statement seems more focused on keeping the manifesto secret and punishing whomever leaked a portion of it, than the safety of the families of the victims. It would not be surprising to learn that people in power are far less concerned with what this manifesto says about Audrey Hale than what it says about the political ideologies that could have driven her to cold blooded murder.
