GOP SENATOR: Nashville School Shooting Should Be Investigated as Anti-Christian ‘Hate Crime’

Senator Josh Hawley is asking federal authorities to investigate Monday’s Nashville school shooting as an anti-Christian “hate crime”.

The massacre left three children and three staffers dead, as well as the assailant.

“We should be clear about what happened in Nashville. Police say the shooting was ‘targeted,’” the Republican lawmaker posted on Twitter. “That makes it a federal hate crime – against Christian children and teachers. Targeting victims on the basis of religious affiliation is a hate crime. It should be investigated as such.” 

“All federal resources necessary should be brought to bear,” he added. “And those individuals or groups who have spread a message of hate against the Christian community – which resulted here in horrific violence – should be held to account.”
