COLUMBUS, OH — (08-05-19) — Ohio GOP state representative Candice Keller sparks outrage as she blames mass shootings on LGBT people.
The bat crazy Ohio GOP Lawmaker had the nerve to post on her social media platform that the two mass shooting that took place on Saturday August 3 in El Paso Texas and Dayton, Ohio – where 32 people were killed and 36 injured, was caused by Trans People, Gay Marriage And few other things that she is obviously insecure about.
Right Wing GOP State Rep. of Ohio Candice Keller Blames LGBT People for the death of 32 People in El Paso and Dayton Mass Shooting
Following the mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas this past weekend, the extremely troubled GOP state lawmaker from Ohio blamed the violence on “drag queen advocates”, “homosexual marriage,” in her outrageous post on Facebook.
State Rep. Candice Keller claimed that Democrats were exploiting the mass shootings and playing “the blame game” after every mass shooting. She made the outrageous claims on her personal Facebook account.
Keller represents District 53 which includes Middletown in Butler County — a small city 30 miles south of Dayton, where a gunman killed nine on Sunday August 4. The GOP lawmaker further claimed that the real blame should be on “acceptance of recreational marijuana” and wait for it…the “breakdown of the traditional American family.”
“Why not place the blame where it belongs?” Keller asked before listing what she believes are the real reasons for mass shootings in the USA:
“The breakdown of the traditional American family (thank you, transgender, homosexual marriage, and drag queen advocates); fatherlessness, a subject no one discuses or believes is relevant; the ignoring of violent video games; the relaxing of laws against criminals (open borders); the acceptance of recreational marijuana; failed school policies (hello parents who defend misbehaving students); disrespect to law enforcement (thank you, Obama); hatred of our veterans (thank you, professional athletes who hate our flag and National Anthem); the Dem Congress, many members whom are open anti-Semitic; the culture, which totally ignores the importance of God and the church (until they elect a President); state officeholders, who have no interest whatsoever in learning about our Constitution and the Second Amendement; and snowflakes, who can’t accept a duly-elected President.”
Keller closet out her post with a sarcastic jab writing: “Did I forget anybody? The list is long. And the fury will continue.” The post is not visible to everyone on Facebook, but screenshots of Keller’s remarks have circulated on Twitter.

Needless to say, responses to the GOP lawmaker were quick on both sides of the her comments!
The blame belongs to many! To those who judge, mock, bully, humiliate, torture, hate, refuse to show compassion, refuse to smile, refuse to speak, refuse to say hello to strangers, belittle, ridicule, emasculate, hinder, beat, keep silent, refuse unity, promote racism and etc…!

Perhaps not to blame for the act of the individual. But she’s not off the mark as far as the general social decay in America over the past forty years. Which were exacerbated and compounded directly after Obama took office. More likely by design rather than happenstance.

WOW she sounds like a whole lot of ignorant! Whew those Republicans can sure pick em!

Actually, the blame is on politicians who are too cowardly to do something about gun violence in America. The problem isn’t the mental illness to guns it’s the easy access to military style assault weapons,

It sounds like Ms Keller is trying to take the judeo-christian perspective that when a society falls away from biblical principles it will begin to collapse. The wages of sin if you will. I do agree with this but only to a point.

Candice Keller a state Rep for the state of Ohio is blaming the mass shootings on Trans, Gays, etc. There is no logic in anything she states. She claims to be college educated but she sounds more like an 8th grade drop out. I wouldn’t be surprised if she is a closet gay & afraid.
