  • GOP Ohio politician blames mass shootings on 'drag queen advocates,' gay marriage

"She loves to fan the flames and play the role of victim here, not the nine people who were killed...."

State Rep. Candice Keller, of Middletown in suburban Cincinnati, took to social on Sunday in the aftermath of a mass shooting in Dayton that claimed nine lives and left 27 people injured, and one day after a gunman opened fire inside a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, killing 20 people. Trump advocated for several different reforms, including identifying and acting on warning signs earlier, keeping firearms out of hands of unsafe individuals and changing the culture we live in, which he said celebrates violence.

"After every mass shooting, the liberals start the blame game", the post attributed to Keller reads.

Flowers form a small memorial in front of a bar in the Oregon District following yesterday's mass shooting on Sunday in Dayton, Ohio. "Why not place the blame where it belongs?"

She goes on to list a series of factors she believes are actually responsible for all the gun-crimes committed by angry white men - including "the breakdown of the traditional American family (thank you, transgender, homosexual marriage, and drag queen advocates)".

And marijuana. And "transgender" And "drag queen advocates" ME AGAIN!

She also blamed fatherlessness, violent video games, the relaxing of laws against criminals and accepting recreational marijuana. The list is long.

The College Democrats of OH weren't the only ones to condemn Keller's remarks. Candice Keller is undoubtedly part of the problem. He later added that she should "resign at once".

While many are calling for her resignation over the remarks, Keller has a history of purposely divisive statements, including slamming Parkland survivors for having the gall to get involved in the gun control conversation after surviving a massacre, and she has yet to resign or apologize for any previous incidents.

Cincinnati City Councilman Chris Seelbach, the council's first openly gay member, paraphrased her post, writing on Twitter that Keller says, "the shootings happened because of my marriage to Craig", and asked his followers to "let her know what [they] think".

"Shame shame shame Candice Keller", Jones wrote. She received backlash in 2017 for sharing a post on Facebook comparing Planned Parenthood to Nazis, WKRC reproted.
