We've been granted exclusive access to excerpts from the Nashville Covenant School shooter's manifesto. Today's show breaks that down line by line as we present you with this latest groundbreaking exposé from Mug Club Undercover.
Just to recap a little bit, a former student named Audrey Hale shot up a Christian school in Nashville in March after she planned the attack over a period of months, according to police. Three 9-year-olds were killed, as well as a school custodian, substitute teacher, and a woman who was head of the school,
At that time, it was known that she identified as a male transgender and was also being treated for a mental disorder.
National Police Association filed
Freedom of Information Act requests to try and get the manifesto released but were denied by a judge. The agency asked for the release of the manifesto, along with all records, emails, texts, and communication within the Metro Police Department about the shooter because they believed the department was hiding the documents due to
The police have held onto the documents for seven months now, which included a suicide note and at least 20 journals.
Many people on the left argued that releasing the documents could inspire other potential school shooters to do the same.
"They cover [shootings] all the time if the narrative lends itself to white supremacy. Spoiler alert, that's not what happened with this one," Crowder said.
The shooter, Audrey Hale, wrote in a journal entry on 2/03/23: "Wanna kill all you little crackers!!!.... W/your white privileges.”
Crowder said that there is an underlying theme in the manifesto of hatred towards “white privilege” and “white people in general,” arriving at Hale’s written words.
"[The left] immediately tried to transition to gun control before the bodies had even assumed room temperature. And then the shooting kind of went away, sort of like Vegas," Crowder said. "It's not a stretch to say that half of students in public schools could be influenced to think this way. Maybe not go out and carry out shootings, but no one in public schools [or by the media] is being influenced to go out and become a white supremacist. The idea that you can be influenced by teachers to believe white people are inherently evil, that white privilege is something in need of correction, that's not a stretch.”
On March 27, the day of the shooting, in a journal entry titled "Dark Abyss Death Day," Hale wrote in her manifesto that she hoped she had a "high death count" and that she was "ready to die."
Throughout her manifesto, “cracker” and “white privilege” are both mentioned multiple times.
"What stands out to me is we don't just have a motive, we have a specific motive target. We know who was in danger. We know why they were in danger,” Crowder said.
Crowder called all this in a past episode, and that show was coincidentally removed.
The day after the shooting, the show was taken down from YouTube as it was claimed the episode targeted the LGBT community by using “hate speech” to somehow make an association with the trans shooter and mental illness.
But what actually was said was that the shooting was a clear example of a hate crime towards Christians. Gerald A also made similar statements and so did the Hodgetwins.
"Has there ever been a more clear-cut motivation for a shooting?" Crowder said at that time.
