'This was TQ+ bar, not a gay bar.'

How many of you have been to this bar?

I have. It was the lone gay bar in the Springs. It was pretty much set up for everyone.

There is no way this wasn’t a targeted attack. It isn’t on a major street, and you really have to know where you are going.

We combine ourselves into groups for a political voice. The bigger the group, the more politicians listen.

Latinos, AANHPI, White, Black, LGBTQ--are all just a conglomeration of varied people brought together for similar goals.

The main goal is legal equality

The reason we are LGBTQ is that we are all targeted similarly by hateful people and the politician they control.

LGBTQ were ALL blocked by the military, all thrown out of federal government positions, all forbidden to marry whom wanted to; all forbidden to congregate and be served alcohol, etc etc etc.

Only recently, when the GOP worked hard to break up the LGBTQ coalition, it focused on trans--specifically Trump blocking trans from the military and now, "trans are groomers" BS.

And, as it has been pointed out, it doesn't matter. LGBT were slaughtered like cattle. We can only assume, knowing the history of how this country treats us, that we were specifically targeted. What a coincidence if he just chose the club that has among America's most hated people in it already

R6, transgenders like Rachel Levine and Lia Thomas have always been free to marry. That's why the hetero T movement never cared about gay marriage and were mad it was made a priority.

Rachel and Lia just wanted to get into female private spaces.

Also, it was the trans movement that started talking about kids 24/7. Never much said about little gay kids during the marriage equality push. That's because the LGB movement was centered on adults.

Accusing LGBT people of being sexual predators....very Republican of you.

"Never much said about little gay kids during the marriage equality push. That's because the LGB movement was centered on adults."

Also, R6, it was the T movement that encouraged parents to pursue surgical mutilation for their kids.

Such as the castration of Jazz Jennings at 17 and the double mastectomy performed on Chloe Cole at age 15.

I predict the "trans" movement will eventually have to rebrand itself to disassociate itself from the increasing stories of what was done to kids in their name.

by Anonymousreply 21November 21, 2022 2:54 AM

There's absolutely no reason whatsoever to focus on the differences between gay people and "hetero T" people at this moment. The shooter isn't trans. And he very likely hated trans. One of his victims, in fact, was an FTM. People such as r19 are doing the bidding of the Republican party - consciously so, probably. Republicans did this and only they benefit from such distractions.

A couple who had just left the bar moments before the shooter arrived said there were about 35 people in the bar when they left, and we know 5 were killed and 25 injured.

While it’s not clear the law could have prevented Saturday night’s attack — such gun seizures can be in effect for as little as 14 days and be extended by a judge in six-month increments — they say it could have at least slowed Aldrich and raised his profile with law enforcement."

From NYTimes re the guy who subdued the shooter. Times has a paywall:

COLORADO SPRINGS — Richard M. Fierro said he was at a table in Club Q with his wife, daughter and friends on Saturday, watching a drag show, when the sudden flash of gunfire ripped across the nightclub. His instincts from four combat deployments as an Army officer in Iraq and Afghanistan instantly kicked in. Fight back, he told himself.

In an interview at his house, where his wife and daughter were still recovering from injuries, Mr. Fierro, 45, who left the Army in 2013 as a major, according to military records, described charging through the chaos at the club, tackling the gunman and beating him bloody with the gunman’s own gun.

“I don’t know exactly what I did, I just went into combat mode,” Mr. Fierro said, shaking his head. “I just know I have to kill this guy before he kills us.”

The authorities are holding Anderson Lee Aldrich, 22, on charges of killing five people, and say that 18 more people were injured in a rampage at the club that lasted only a few minutes. The death toll could have been much higher, officials said on Sunday, if patrons of the bar had not stopped the gunman.

Mr. Fierro’s description of what happened in those moments in Club Q closely matches accounts given by the police and city officials and by the club’s owners, who have reviewed security footage from the massacre. When they were shown a picture of Mr. Fierro on Monday, one club owner, Nic Grzecka, said that he looked like the man who took down the gunman.

“I don’t even know his name,” Mr. Grzecka said. “I would really like to meet him.”

When the shooting started, Mr. Fierro said, he hit the floor, pulling a friend down with him. As bullets sprayed, he saw the gunman move through the bar toward a door leading to a patio where dozens of bar patrons had fled. Mr. Fierro, who served in the Army for 15 years, said he raced across the room, grabbed the gunman by a handle on the back of his body armor, pulled him to the floor and jumped on top of him.

“Was he shooting at the time? Was he about to shoot? I don’t know,” ” Mr. Fierro said. “I just knew I had to take him down.”

The gunman, who Mr. Fierro estimated weighed more than 300 pounds, sprawled onto the floor, his military-style rifle landing just out of reach. Mr. Fierro started to go for the rifle, but then saw that the gunman had a pistol as well.

“I grabbed the gun out of his hand and just started hitting him in the head, over and over,” Mr. Fierro said.

As the fight continued, he said, he yelled for other club patrons to help him. A man grabbed the rifle and moved it away to safety. A drag dancer stomped on the gunman with her high heels. The whole time, Mr. Fierro said, he kept pummeling the shooter’s head while the two men screamed obscenities at each other.

When police arrived a few minutes later, the gunman was no longer struggling, Mr. Fierro said, and he feared that he had killed him. The suspect in the shooting was taken into custody and remained hospitalized on Monday afternoon.

Mr. Fierro said he was covered in blood when the police arrived, and officers tackled him and put him in handcuffs. He said he was held in a police car for more than an hour, and screamed and pleaded to be let go so that he could see what had happened to his family.

Mr. Fierro, who owns a local brewery, said that on combat deployments in the Army, he had been shot at and had seen roadside bombs shred trucks in his platoon. His record shows that he was awarded the Bronze Star twice. The experiences of combat still haunt him, he said, and the psychological and physical toll of the deployments were why he left the Army.

He said he never thought he would have to deal with that kind of violence at home.

“I was done with war,” he said.

It also says he changed his name from Nicholas Brink to Anderson Aldrich at age 15 after being bullied:

"Until age 15, he was known as Nicholas Brink, living in San Antonio, public records show. His parents separated when he was a toddler, and when he was 12, his mother, Laura Voepel, was arrested for suspected arson, according to court documents. She was later found guilty of a lesser offense in connection with the same incident."

"At age 15, he became the target of a particularly vicious bout of online bullying in which insulting accusations were posted to a website, along with his name, photos and online aliases, according to a review of the site by The Washington Post. At some point, a YouTube account was created under his name, featuring a crude, profanity-laden animation under the title, 'Asian homosexual gets molested'."

Objective evidence of what exactly? At best, it's an inference and easily a rebuttable inference. You have to know more about the shooter's activities before you can make that inferential leap.

The other evidence may be there or it may not. If we find out the shooter was getting evicted or forced to leave and needed a job and he got rejected at the bar for work would that alter the inference? For the anal retentives in the back of the room, that's just an example, I'm not saying that happened.

The woman behind alt-right outfit "Gays Against Groomers" has gone on Tucker to say that shootings will keep happening until the evil trans agenda is defeated. If this isn't an admission that the shooter is on her side, nothing is. You've got to admire how flexible right-wingers are, though. One time, Tucker is saying that nobody knows what motivated the shooter, the next he's having other people say that shootings are bound to happen until his side wins.

There is a more recent clear picture of the gunman in this article as well as more details about the parents. The dad had a 1999 domestic violence conviction against the mom.

He was bullied at the age of 15, and changed his name at that time:

“The site, which resembles Wikipedia, has photos of Aldrich as a teenager and uses offensive slurs to mock his weight and accuse him of engaging in illegal activity.

The site derided an apparent attempt by Aldrich's grandmother to raise money for him to travel to Japan with classmates.”

The GOP put about $50M into anti-trans political advertising this year (per WaPo), banking on it being the culture wars issue that would get the white women out to vote, but it turned out it didn't matter and no one cared. The Repugs didn't want to lose the independent/light right woman-voting demographic, but they knew women were mad about abortion, so the Repugs tried the transphobic angle. It didn't work.

Instead of reflecting on their poor performance at the midterms, the Repugs have doubled down, and now you can see with this particular hate crime that they've gone from "keep the tranny menace out of bathrooms" to "if they get shot it's all on them, they'll keep getting shot unless they stop transitioning," as the Jaimee Mitchell lady from "Gays Against Groomers" said on Tucker last night.

People need to become aware of the fact that these phrases like "gays against groomers" are Trojan Horses designed to make you think about the issue in simplistic terms, to reel you in, then to hit you with the crazy stuff later on, but by then you'll have been so indoctrinated you won't notice how crazy it is.

That's one reason why so many of these threads are 80% people who now believe drag queens are trans people. You wouldn't have seen this kind of confusion earlier in 2022, but you do now, because DLers are being assailed with hateful rhetoric everywhere (not just DL) and haven't realized it yet.

A lot of people on here are at the "drag queens are trans" stage, and the next step is "trans people are all groomers" and they are going down that path, and I hope a few of them stop for a second, think about what's going on, realize what's happening, and change course.

More detailed (and strange) info:

The accused gunman’s birth name was Nicholas Brink, with a nickname of Nick Brink, according to The Washington Post, which reported that the shooter sought a name change due to “online bullying.” Heavy has confirmed the 2016 name change with Bexar County, Texas, court records. The Denver Gazette reported that the name change came because Aldrich wanted to distance from his father, Aaron Brink, an adult film performer named “Dick Delaware” who has a criminal history and crystal meth addiction.

The online bullying involved a Wikipedia-like page targeted Aldrich. It’s still up, and someone has now updated it with the Club Q shooting. “Anderson Lee Aldrich a.k.a. Joclings (Deadname: Nick Brink) is a l33t hax0r, pedophile and f** killer from Texas that graduated from CSIII at the top of his class and weighs well over 9000 kilograms,” the site says. “Spending all day lurking in the depths of the internet on child porn sites and gaming forums, if you so much as glanced in his direction, he’d immediately attempt to overpower you with his fat and tell you all about his success on the internet.”

The cruel site included photos of Aldrich with the phrase, “That’s a face only a mother could love. Too bad she’s gone now.” The site makes unverified claims about Aldrich’s family life.

Like all intellectual individuals, he's tried to take a trip to the holy land so that he can legally molest children. His attempt at gathering funds, led by his grandmother, inevitably failed because who wants to send an antisocial loser to best country where he'll just eat, sleep, and try to pick up women? Due to being molested by his both his mother and father, he lived with his grandmother Pamela Pullen -- who somehow manages to always have enough money to put towards food in order to keep this balloon from deflating.

"Shortly before he changed his name, the suspected shooter apparently was a target of online bullying and showed signs of a fascination with gay culture."

"There are indications that Aaron Brink's son had a fascination with gay culture. Aldrich, as Nicholas Brink, established a YouTube channel in 2010 using the moniker “TheAzzbackward.” He may have been the creator of an animated 45-second video displayed on the site called “Asian Homosexual Gets Molested.” It was the only video on the channel."

R253, transmen are people of the female sex who in many cases are attracted to other females and who have chopped their healthy breasts off because they want to look "masc". Those of us who are actually lesbians ourselves (unlike you) know that this is becoming an epidemic among lesbians and bisexual women, especially because lesbians are little valued in the so-called "LGBTQ+ community" and in wider society. I've come across a number of same-sex attracted females who did this to themselves and now deeply regret it. The surest and quickest way to win praise and "social capital" as a female in the "LGBTQ+ community" is to get your tits chopped off and inject yourself with T.

Imagine being more upset about your son being gay than your son being a mass murderer. Typical conservative family values

Damn r309. I'm not usually surprised by MAGAts and their shit, but that was actually shocking. I would just say, there is no evidence that Jenna Ellis is a Christian, and even less that Donald Trump is a Christian. But I guarantee this cunt thinks both she and Donald are going to heaven. Everybody who refers to her in any way on any platform should refer to her as The Cunt Jenna Ellis, now and forever.

Actually his father’s horrid words about “We don’t do gay” will support the fact that his is a hate crime

by Anonymousreply 319November 24, 2022 2:20 PM

R319, the father also said he encouraged his son to be violent as a child and trained him to fight, which doesn’t match the official custody records claiming they had no contact.

The father was also arrested in connection with an armed burglary in 2016.

by Anonymousreply 320November 24, 2022 2:36 PM

“He also told the reporters that he had previously praised his child for violent behaviour.

“I told him it works, it’s instant and you will get immediate results,” he said.“

The mom had posted in Feb 2022 that her son, who is 6’6 and heavy, could “hit like a freight train”.

The dad had dabbled in gay for pay porn, which became public knowledge after the Intervention episode aired on television. That could have led to the online harassment that Aldrich experienced as a teenager. Plus I don’t think it helped that whoever exposed him for looking at underage porn when he was a teenager (apparently porn of young girls) chose to mock him by putting a profane gay themed video on his YouTube page which he couldn’t delete. It would possibly have made him target his rage at being exposed towards gay people or at the idea of being thought gay and needing to prove he wasn’t.

I don’t believe his non-binary claim since the neighbor who has been in frequent contact with him up to the present made no mention of it at all and said that his frequent use of the word “f——t” came from a place of anger.

The man who committed this crime hated the idea of being thought to be gay. He was mocked online and the mockery had a gay/anti-gay theme. It had nothing to do with anyone’s pronouns.

r326 Dana Rivers had been identifying as trans 16 years before that crime, you retard. She even had a surgery performed to chop it off. This fat neckbeard on the other hand, everyone who knows him is saying he'd never claimed being nonbinary before. You want to join the right-wing mob? They would be saying the same thing had the shooter claimed he was gay. And he could have. There have been anti-gay murderers before who tried to escape the hate crime charge by identifying as bisexual. Maybe you don't even care - a high amount of Dataloungers who took this shooting as opportunity to demonize drag queens as groomers, and you're probably one of them. Maybe this is all a game for you to spread hate nonstop.

Also, get off the cross. Not a single lesbian died in this bar. Two who died were trans. They were the victims here. You were not.

Proof not required.

Anyone who says they is NB, is NB.

Any man who says he’s a woman, is a woman.

And woman who she’s a man, is a man.

Dana Rivers set the precedent. A straight white man brutally murdered black lesbians & their son & was not be charged with a hate crime.

How convenient. When an FTM commits a mass shooting, this proves that TQ+ people are prone to crime. When an FTM is martyred and you need some representation at the funeral pyre, then suddenly he counts as lesbian. You're dying to be a victim, at the same time you demonize nonstop the people who've actually been victimized.

Dana Rivers killed a lesbian couple in 2016. But she had been identifying as trans since the 90s and surgically transitioned in 2000. Think of her what you will, but she did not start identifying as trans just to escape a hate crime charge, unless you're a fucking retard who believes in clairvoyance.

The situation of this Aldrich person is wholly different. He only came out with this NB bullshit now, after killing a bunch of gay and trans people. By insisting that he be regarded as something different from the obvious male he is, you're adding your voice to the likes of Marjorie Taylor Greene and Ben Shapiro, and are treating the lives of the victims as political football, much like the right-wing is, you crazy cunt.

R334, have you considered that there were dozens of men believed to be involved in crimes like this who not only do not have hate crime charges, but were never charged with any crime at all? Dozens of men in a sheriff’s department who tortured and murdered kids as young as 14, and only one was ever charged?

If you want to broaden the scope of what’s considered a hate crime, that’s one thing. Dana’s crime is not the only hate crime that ever happened. Male guards in women’s prisons are only convicted 1 percent of the time when they are reported for sexual assault. Male gynecologists are sometimes convicted for sexually assaulting women while they are unconscious. Actually like people with disingenuous gender identities are the only or the main threat is an extreme kind of tunnel vision.

“In fact, while investigators dragged and searched the rivers, they uncovered the bodies of eight African Americans: Herbert Oarsby, a 14-year-old who was wearing a Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) t-shirt; Henry Hezekiah Dee and Eddie Moore (both 19-years-old); and five unidentified men.“

He can claim what he wants, but if there's no evidence of him identifying before the murders no jury will believe him. It's like the insanity defense.

It is perfectly possible for LGBT on LGBTG crime to be a hate crime.

If one of the deranged gays on DL who insist that all Ts are chopping off the genitals of 10 year olds went on a T killing spree, it would be a G on T hate crime.
