Ohio GOP rep drops truth bombs following Dayton shootings; blames them on Leftist ‘drag queen’ culture, ‘fatherlessness’
By JonDougherty OPINION
The Ohio Republican Party is calling for the resignation of a state GOP representative after she dropped a ton of truth bombs in a now-deleted Facebook post following the shootings last weekend by a Left-wing atheist and supporter of Democratic candidates.
As reported by the Dayton Daily News, Rep. Candice Keller — whose district is close to Dayton, Ohio — blamed mass shootings in the US on former President Barack Obama, “fatherlessness,” violent video games and “drag queen advocates.”
“After every mass shooting, the liberals start the blame game. Why not place the blame where it belongs?” she wrote before listing about a dozen things she said were to blame for mass shootings.
“The breakdown of the traditional American family (thank you, transgender, homosexual marriage, and drag queen advocates); fatherlessness, a subject no one discusses or believes is relevant; the ignoring of violent video games,” Keller wrote in the post.
In addition to other things Keller said were behind the violence, she also placed blame on “disrespect to law enforcement (thank you, Obama)” and “the Dem Congress, many members whom are openly anti-Semitic.”
The post was too much for the state GOP, whose chairwoman, Jane Murphy Timken, called on Keller to resign Monday.
“While our nation was in utter shock over the acts of violence in El Paso and Dayton, Republican State Representative Candice Keller took to social media to state why she thought these acts were happening. Candice Keller’s Facebook post was shocking and utterly unjustifiable,” Timken said in a statement to CNN.
“Our nation is reeling from these senseless acts of violence and public servants should be working to bring our communities together, not promoting divisiveness. I am calling on Candice Keller to resign.”
Keller’s comments come after a number of Democrats — many of whom are running for president — laid the blame for the shootings at the feet of POTUS Donald Trump after days of accusing him of being a “racist” who “stokes hatred” with his tweets about congressmen and congresswomen whose districts are a mess.
Former Rep. Robert “Beto” O’Rourke, who used to represent the El Paso region in Congress and whose own 2020 Democratic presidential bid is flagging, has attempted to use the shootings in that city to revitalize his campaign.
In several media appearances since the shooting, O’Rourke has said Trump has been a “racist for years” and should not get off “scot-free” after condemning white supremacy following the shootings.
“This is the most racist President we’ve had since perhaps Andrew Johnson, in another age and another century, and he is responsible for the hatred and the violence that we’re seeing right now,” O’Rourke said in an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo on “Cuomo Prime Time.”
O’Rourke told Cuomo that he “cannot leave that just to me to say that. It’s got to be you, and those who are helping this country understand what is happening in our name, to connect those dots of these actions that can seem unconnected or disparate or random or just strange.”
In his tweets and many comments regarding problems he sees throughout the country, POTUS has never made race an issue or mentioned ethnicity. However, the media continually stoke this narrative, along with Democrats.
As for Keller, it’s unclear whether she’ll step down from her position or allow voters in her district to make that decision for her.
