Warner: Tennessee Shooting: Fear Is the Goal

by Aaron Warner

The shooting of three innocent children and three innocent faculty members at the Covenant Christian School in Nashville, TN yesterday quickly became the top story in the news.  Of course a tragedy like this is newsworthy if for no other reason than to mourn with those who are mourning and give Americans a chance to grieve and support them in their time of loss.  

The facts surrounding the case as we’ve been told are as follows: 

  • A 28 year old biological female who was living as a male committed the crime
  • The shooter once attended the school 
  • The shooter’s mom is on social media calling for gun control as far back as 2018
  • The shooter’s dad has not been mentioned or given comments
  • The shooter’s brother is a law student
  • The shooter’s neighbors said the family is “very nice and very religious”
  • The shooter is described as “nice” and “kind of quiet”
  • The shooter dressed in camouflage, with an apparent tactical vest and a red baseball cap
  • The shooter carried multiple “assault” rifles 
  • The shooter has a manifesto explaining their motive, which included shooting up another school 
  • The shooter is dead and incapable of being interviewed or examined 

I have no doubt this event will be used energetically by those wishing to remove guns from society and with the least amount of genuine sympathy to those genuinely affected by it.  Rather than ask why are these shootings taking place, why are the shooters nearly identical in nature and age, and why are they targeting children and gun-free zones, the opportunists and mock-heroes will come out denouncing guns with the loudest possible means – why?  Because all they need is fear to move people into making irrational decisions.  

Tragedies like these are used to create such a cloud of panic and fear, kind of like that felt on 9/11, that those in government will swiftly move to “solve the problem”, which they will tell you is guns.  Not mentally ill or evil people using guns for evil purposes, but guns themselves.  As if the gun made itself, loaded itself, took itself to the school/mall/street and began discharging itself on innocent people.  If you are afraid you won’t even bother to notice the absurdity of the claim.  You will simply fear for your or your loved one’s safety.  The idea of safety is the tool they use to manipulate you.   To feel safe you will agree to comply with their solution – let’s get rid of guns or greatly restrict them. 

Of course this sounds cynical to those who are so overcome with emotional and empathy for those suffering they will likely rage against my point.  However it’s important to understand how your brain works in moments like this. 

The lower center of the brain is the “fight, flight or freeze” part that activates when we are confronted with unsafe and fearful situations.  It’s the part that pulls a hand of a burning stove top reflexively.  It’s made for that reason – to react quickly to danger.  Those who manufacture psychological operations (psy-ops) know this.  They know that if they can trigger a fear response people are more easily manipulated.  

The part of the brain’s operating system they intend to avoid is the pre-frontal cortex which is responsible for executive function.  This part of the brain analyzes a situation.  It’s the part that officers and firefighters use as they rush in to fearful situations to save lives.  They can do so because they’ve been trained to override the fight, flight or flee reaction, keep their calm in the face of danger and make rational, life saving decisions.  

Let’s think rationally about this situation.  

This is the latest in a long list of patterns that needs explaining.  Schools are targeted by younger individuals, with over a 90% incidence of mental illness.  The people, often with little to no income and no history of training, all suddenly brandish expensive weapons, have detailed militarized plans, wear tactical gear and have a blood thirsty desire to kill children who have done them no harm.  

Many of them were known by the F.B.I. who did not act. 

Furthermore, forensic psychologists are on the record stating what NOT to do following an event like this to avoid future events.  

  • Do not share the name or image of the shooter on television
  • Do not show footage of the event or victims 
  • Do not in any way glorify or magnify this event 
  • Do not use dramatic sounds or music on air when describing the event, such as sirens
  • Do not play records or sounds of shooting

Already this morning I have seen every one of these rules violated.  Already the school’s private video of the shooter blowing the glass doors open and shooting in offices as if we’re watching a video game or horror film are circulating online – everywhere.  This will create two psychological environments that help no one: 

  1. create widespread fear and demoralization
  2. sow seeds into the minds of the next activist lunatic looking for their moment of glory 

Watch the media do this and you will know they do not care about you or your children at all. 

Watch the politicians piggy back the narrative and you can only conclude the same. 

These are the same people who forced now known deadly vaccines, useless masks, crippling lockdowns and are pushing CRT, SEL, drag queens and anti-American curricula on these children.  When active shooters went into Ukraine they sent $100 billion of your taxpayer moeny in weapons to help defend them. When active shooters attack your children they want to take your weapons and ability to defend yourself away.

They are deliberately trying to demoralize and mentally cripple you and your children.  They are now using a tiny Christian School for their agenda, right after a tiny Christian School in Vermont stood up to them.  

Don’t be fooled friends.  These people are evil. 

If you haven’t already, it’s time to stand up and fight like heaven is on your side, because it is.

  1. Thank you for this very clearly reasoned explanation of what is going on and has been going in the USA for several decades now. Despite, and because of, our heartfelt revulsion and pain at the loss of these innocent lives, we need to look at the larger picture as you describe it so very well. The entire mainstream media is corrupt and is in fact quite obviously a tool of those evil forces behind almost all of our national and much of our state governments.

  2. I would add that you never hear much after the initial report when an Asian, Hispanic, or African-American does these things. Why? It doesn’t fit the narrative. All mass shooters are white. They all have a manifesto. They all outfit themselves in combat-style clothing. Okay, so what?

    So what is they’re always manipulated by someone or some thing. The FBI has been caught providing bomb making supplies to these people and urging them on. A mass shooting? That’s first grade stuff for them. I have no doubt the Agency is involved as well. Let’s look at Sandy Hook:

    I was in contact for awhile with a resident of Newtown CT. My question was simple – “Did Sandy Hook happen the way they said it did?”. Their answer was no, it was all staged. I remember one thing they told me was about a parade they had there to “honor the victims”. The parade marched down the street in front of the school. The streets were lined with national media. When the parade took a corner and was out of sight, the media immediately folded up and went home, as did all the pols and officials. So what? That corner where the parade turned was a dead end street. As soon as they were out of the media’s view, they disbanded and walked away. In 10 minutes they were all gone. You wouldn’t know a good sized parade had been there at all. It was all a show to reinforce the preferred narrative. And it was well known (true or not) that if you talked, you’d be ruined at best, disappeared at worst.

    As far as I’m concerned ALL of this nonsense is for the purpose of getting our guns. What the clueless don’t know is if the elites didn’t fear our guns, we’d all be in concentration camps because we had no way to resist. As long as we’re well-armed, they’re not going to be putting their lives or those of their families at risk. Don’t believe me? Afghanistan held off both Russia AND the US. In a row. Guns are a great equalizer.

    And the Second Amendment was written with exactly today’s situation in mind. It’s time more of us read it and fully understand it. It isn’t “just a sheet of paper”. It isn’t “outdated”. And it most certainly isn’t “pliable”. It’s a backstop and a road map to a highly functional society where it is self-evident that all men ARE, indeed, created equal.

  3. Evil indeed reigns when we throw God out of our lives & government attempts to replace God. Our Lord, for whom the existence of is plentiful, is loving & merciful. The government who believes they can become a god is corrupt, self-serving, and often deadly.

    In God we trust – NOT: In government we trust. Deny Him & we all pay these penalties, including the innocent, for within us He dwells so long as our soul cries out for Him.

    • The Epistle to Diognetus
      Chapter 5

      For the Christians are distinguished from other men neither by country, nor language, nor the customs which they observe. For they neither inhabit cities of their own, nor employ a peculiar form of speech, nor lead a life which is marked out by any singularity. The course of conduct which they follow has not been devised by any speculation or deliberation of inquisitive men; nor do they, like some, proclaim themselves the advocates of any merely human doctrines. But, inhabiting Greek as well as barbarian cities, according as the lot of each of them has determined, and following the customs of the natives in respect to clothing, food, and the rest of their ordinary conduct, they display to us their wonderful and confessedly striking method of life. They dwell in their own countries, but simply as sojourners. As citizens, they share in all things with others, and yet endure all things as if foreigners. Every foreign land is to them as their native country, and every land of their birth as a land of strangers. They marry, as do all [others]; they beget children; but they do not destroy their offspring. They have a common table, but not a common bed. They are in the flesh, but they do not live after the flesh. They pass their days on earth, but they are citizens of heaven. They obey the prescribed laws, and at the same time surpass the laws by their lives. They love all men, and are persecuted by all. They are unknown and condemned; they are put to death, and restored to life. They are poor, yet make many rich; they are in lack of all things, and yet abound in all; they are dishonoured, and yet in their very dishonour are glorified. They are evil spoken of, and yet are justified; they are reviled, and bless; they are insulted, and repay the insult with honour; they do good, yet are punished as evil-doers. When punished, they rejoice as if quickened into life; they are assailed by the Jews as foreigners, and are persecuted by the Greeks; yet those who hate them are unable to assign any reason for their hatred.

  4. The first thing press secretary Pierre spouted yesterday was that Republicans were responsible for the shooting…She and the Joe Zero Woke echoers are responsible for the divisive and irresponsible rhetoric they spew…”Never let a crisis go to waste”, right from the mouth of corruptible Clinton herself…everything is political to the Democratic wasteland sheep…they do everything they can to assess blame when it is actually staring at them in the mirror…subversives in every sense of the word…

    • DHS replaced the color-coded alerts of the Homeland Security Advisory System (HSAS) with the National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) in 2011. Here is the latest advisory November 2022: “The United States remains in a heightened threat environment. Lone offenders and small groups motivated by a range of ideological beliefs and/or personal grievances continue to pose a persistent and lethal threat to the Homeland. Domestic actors and foreign terrorist organizations continue to maintain a visible presence online in attempts to motivate supporters to conduct attacks in the Homeland. Threat actors have recently mobilized to violence, citing factors such as reactions to current events and adherence to violent extremist ideologies. In the coming months, threat actors could exploit several upcoming events to justify or commit acts of violence, including certifications related to the midterm elections, the holiday season and associated large gatherings, the marking of two years since the breach of the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, and potential sociopolitical developments connected to ideological beliefs or personal hostility. Targets of potential violence include public gatherings, faith-based institutions, the LGBTQI+ community, schools, racial and religious minorities, government facilities and personnel, U.S. critical infrastructure, the media, and perceived ideological opponents.” Keyword: “actors” ? When did the alphebet soup group add an “I”? All in all, the bulletin pretty much pits everybody against everybody.

  5. I appreciate the detail you provide, and much of the sociological analysis as well. However, I think what’s being left out in reaching political conclsusions is the powerful lure of the technology itself. I think that “pull” is part and parcel of the technology’s interplay with mostly male fantasies as a means for overcoming alienation. Most of us are able to resist turning the occasional “get even” dream into deadly action. But some are not — the same way that hard drugs become addictive, so too can shooting from within a dream-world, where people being targeted are not clearly “present,” “I might as well do this and almost close my eyes, they are not real people.” Empathy is lost in those people, possibly a result of anatomical changes in brain structure caused, in part, by exposure to massive quantities of hormone-disrupting chemicals (pesticides, herbicides, which are all-pervasive today and in our foods as well as in gardens and used everywhere to kill weeds), and for some by hormone-disrupting “sex transformative” chemicals which can block being able to have real empathy for others.

  6. Simply stated, it is domestic terrorism perpetrated to shed the most blood for maximum effect. Shock and awe. The goal to pit Americans against each other under false pretenses, whip it into a frenzy, and the “government” rides in on a white horse to take away civil liberties all in the name of safety. Playbook known – wash, rinse, repeat until we are subservient, cowaring serfs. Meanwhile, the same playbook is being used in other countries under the guise of freedom and democracy. Concurrently, our economy and currency is collapsing, wealth being stolen, and bank consolidation is underway. Standing on shaking ground, indeed.

  7. Yes, there is fear here. But I don’t think it’s a conspiracy – at least not to the extent some may think. The powers that be are more incompetent than they are manipulative. One need only review this December National Public Radio article – – to see the thoughtlessness of the governments propaganda outlet.

    What we’re seeing is objectively behavioral. And there are many behavioral studies showing that the stress resulting from over-crowding (as opposed to over-population) affects traditional behavioral norms – or, more accurately, the break-down thereof.

    As I’ve said before – read Edward T. Halls 1960 aggregation of various peer-reviewed behavioral studies on various species, including humans. What we’re seeing today is a textbook, stress-related, break-down in those traditional behavioral norms. And its not going to get better anytime soon – no matter what we do. It’s cyclical. We’re in a phase. Traditional social norms will return. But not yet.

    I am making an assumption in this regard. That ‘over-crowding’ (as referenced in the various studies) is as much the result of a ubiquitous, digital, social media, as it is architecture and land use. Back in the 1960s, behavioral researchers had no idea what today’s internet and social media platforms would bring. But for the most part, the studies indicate that the resulting pansexual and violent behavior increases in direct correlation with increased stress. And there is virtually no limit as to how that behavior manifests itself. Different cultures create different outcomes.

    The Hall studies do, however, indicate a strategy for survival common to all studied species, including humans. Those individuals that, by chance or by choice, manage to ‘go abroad’ and avoid conflict, typically survive to carry on their species. Those individuals that don’t or can’t control their environment, suffer many various, but common outcomes. In other words, ‘your’ survival depends on ‘your’ ability to control ‘your’ environment.

    Praemonitus praemunitus,


  8. Going back 50 years or so, we as a society decided that it violates the human rights of mentally disordered individuals to pre-emptively segregate them from society, either for their own safety or for the good of society. We used the Americans with Disabilities Act to regard them as victims of a disease for which they have no fault or control over. The ADA says that we must “accommodate” their illness in a reasonable manner. I go along with this, but we all must realize that there is a price to pay, and that price is the carnage that some of these people will cause, some with their bare hands, some with blunt objects and some with more elaborate weaponry such as explosive devices, motor vehicles or firearms. Sometimes this carnage is directed toward young victims for maximum effect. As someone who accepts that some people are victims of serious mental illness, I am willing to accept the occasional carnage, but I am NOT WILLING to accept it being an excuse to infringe on my Constitutional Rights, including those guaranteed by the Second Amendment.
    Unless we are going back to pre-emptively confining individuals who exhibit warning signs of dangerous behavior, I am ok with saying a prayer for the victims and going back to whatever I was doing before the mainstream media “struggles to find a motive” and turns the incident into a feeding frenzy for leftist authoritarians. I prefer to be guided by the philosophies of “more guns equals less crime” and “a polite society is an armed society”, where victims are allowed to shoot back and end these incidents quickly with as few innocent victims as possible. GUNS ARE NOT THE PROBLEM, THE LEFT IS.

  9. The trans movement has been increasingly radicalizing and arming over their hysterical imaginings of persecution, yet another symptom of the absolutely stunning levels of mental illness on the left. A number of recent public shootings have been “trans.” And we’ll see more, as these people goof themselves on drugs, hormones and surgery, or worse, get goofed by their Munchausen by proxy liberal mothers. Speaking of mental illness, since body dysmorphia is a diagnosable mental illness for which the solution apparently justifies hormones and surgery, perhaps transexuals ought to be automatically denied their Second Amendment rights on the basis of poor mental health evaluation. Isn’t that what the left keeps claiming that they’re asking for?

  10. Why are we not clamoring for ignition interlocks on every vehicle on the road today seeing as how alcohol kills 10,000 men women and children every year in this country. Ask this question to the gun hater crowd.

  11. Of Course the media jumped on the 3 guns used in the attack claiming the shooter carried 3 assault style weapons. To the media, any black rifle is an assault weapon. The shooter actually had two pistols, one 9mm S&W Shield which is a defensive pistol. The rifle called an AR15 styled rifle is actually a pistol with a short barrel and fires 223 rounds. The third gun is a Kel Tec SUB2000 carbine also in 9mm pistol caliber and uses Glock 9mm pistol magazines of either 15 or 17 rounds. The SUB2000 is also available in 40 caliber. None of these weapons can be classified as an AR15 but who cares they all look bad and they are black.

    The term Assault weapon was devised by the left to create a campaign against a rifle that is not qualified for military use standards, but is popular amongst the shooting public. It is a sporting rifle with a 22 caliber bullet on top of 45mm shell casing loaded with powder to make it a high velocity cartridge. The cartridge was designed for the military to wound an enemy. The legal term of assault weapon is anything that is used to assault a person, like a hammer.

    The left and the media sympathizers use terms to frighten the public. The first one they devised was “The Saturday Night Special”. This was devised to point the finger at small cheap handguns from being imported into the USA. This was the beginning of the 1968 gun control act used to ban small defensive pistols because they could be hidden and carried with ease. Another deceptive use of tricky words to accomplish a goal to disarm the public.

    This is how the democrats respond to serious mental health issues causing much of the violence we see today. Instead of looking for the actual cause which is mental illness, the left uses these horrible events to disarm the law abiding people who have nothing to do with any violence. They can not rule over our constitution, which they despise, until they disarm the public at large. The media is the the spreader of fear for dishonest politicians to go after our god given rights. It makes a thinking person wonder why they aren’t interested in addressing the mental health problem rampant in our society until you realize that without these sick murderers there would be no avenue for gun control and confiscation. It doesn’t take a brain surgeon to figure out that it isn’t the gun that’s the problem. The left’s agenda to distract Americans is the reason why mental illness is ignored. Without the climate change myth, racism, transgender lies and gun violence, the left’s agenda would collapse over night.
