House Speaker Nancy Pelosi marked Transgender Remembrance Day by attacking MAGA Republicans and implicating them in the Colorado LBGTQ nightclub shooting that left five dead.

Five people were killed when a 22-year-old opened fire Saturday night at Club Q in Colorado Springs, and 18 others were injured.

“As our nation celebrates Transgender Day of Remembrance, the House Democratic Caucus mourns the countless Americans who have been abducted by the scourge of transphobic violence, a crisis that continues to disproportionately harm transgender people of color,” Pelosi said in a statement.

Pelosi, who will step down as Democratic leader in January, continued: “That battle remains more urgent than ever as right-wing extremists target the most fundamental rights and freedoms of transgender Americans. Whether spouting dangerous rhetoric from cable news counters or openly bullying schoolchildren from the halls of power, MAGA Republicans are viciously undermining the safety and well-being of our transgender community.”

“As our nation celebrates Transgender Day of Remembrance, the House Democratic Caucus mourns the countless Americans who have been abducted by the scourge of transphobic violence, a crisis that continues to disproportionately harm transgender people of color,” Pelosi said in a statement.

“Shocked by such blatant bigotry, House Democrats are proud to march with our trans friends.”

A motive for the attack has not yet been determined.

Authorities say Anderson Lee Aldrich entered the gay club just before midnight and fired an unknown number of bullets from his AR-15 style long rifle before being restrained by at least two “heroic” patrons.

Aldrich is now in protective custody at a local hospital for unknown injuries. The Colorado Springs man was previously arrested for voicing a bomb threat in June 2021.

Numerous victims, some in critical condition, were transported to three nearby hospitals. The medical facilities are currently working to notify families of the condition of their loved ones.

GOP-led state legislators have put the fight against transgender activism front and center on the culture war frontier, launched legislation keeping transgender boys out of girl sports, bills requiring students to use the bathroom that matches their sex assigned at birth and policies that prevent early elementary school teachers from talking about gender and sexuality.
