On Sunday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi condemned the attack in a statement saying, “The attack on Club Q, which fell on the eve of Transgender Day of Remembrance, is despicable - further shattering the sense of safety of LGBTQ Americans across the country.”
In a second statement, Pelosi had more to say about “MAGA Republicans” and blamed them for violent attacks, such as the one at Club Q aimed against the LGBT population. Pelosi stated, “That fight remains more urgent than ever, as right-wing extremists target transgender Americans’ most fundamental rights and freedoms.”
“Whether spouting dangerous rhetoric from cable news desks or openly bullying schoolchildren from the halls of power, MAGA Republicans are cruelly undermining the safety and well-being of our transgender community.”
Other Democrats allege those who are not in agreement with the LGBT agenda are the ones responsible for the attack.
