Even after a massacre at a Christian school perpetrated by a “transgender” shooter, radical leftist activists still plan to hold a “Trans Day of Vengeance” demonstration this weekend.
On Monday, a 28-year-old woman claiming to be a man entered the Covenant School in Nashville, Tennessee, and murdered three children and three adults. The shooter was then killed at the scene by police officers.
Following this news, people began to point to a planned activist demonstration — the “Trans Day of Vengeance” — and call for the event to be canceled or postponed in light of the tragedy.
Despite widespread backlash surrounding the planned event, the Trans Radical Activist Network has confirmed that the event will still be taking place.
According to the organization’s website, the event will be taking place in Washington, D.C., from Friday to Sunday — and is being held in response to Republican-led states banning or planning to ban hormone replacement therapy or gender surgeries for minors. The Trans Radical Activist Network also cited supposed violent rhetoric toward the transgender community from conservative lawmakers.
“This protest is about unity, not inciting violence,” the organization claimed. “TRAN does not encourage violence and it is not welcome at this event.”
Meanwhile, critics have been highlighting this event in the wake of the mass shooting — citing violent rhetoric from radical transgender activists as further proof that the mental health issues of this demographic have led to an increased risk of violence perpetrated by the transgender community.
Some of these critics, including Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), have been suspended from Twitter as a result of their comments.
“My Congressional account was suspended for 7 days for exposing Antifa, who are organizing a call for violence called ‘Trans Day of Vengeance,’” Greene said on Twitter.
“The day after the mass murder of children by a trans shooter. Restore my account immediately,” she added.
This is a lie.

Twitter’s Trust and Safety lead Ella Irwin responded to the suspensions, revealing that the social media platform had taken swift action to prevent the advertising of the “Trans Day of Vengeance” by “automatically” sweeping Twitter and removing around 5,000 tweets of the poster about the event — and some tweets criticizing the demonstration had gotten caught up in the platform’s automated action.
“We do not support tweets that incite violence irrespective of who posts them. ‘Vengeance’ does not imply peaceful protest. Organizing or support for peaceful protests is ok,” Irwin added.
Correct. We had to automatically sweep our platform and remove >5000 tweets /retweets of this poster. We do not support tweets that incite violence irrespective of who posts them. "Vengeance" does not imply peaceful protest. Organizing or support for peaceful protests is ok
