The decade's most triggering comedy
The transgender-identifying killer who murdered six people at a Christian school in Nashville was consumed by leftist racial hatred targeting whites as “privileged,” according to three pages of the shooter’s diary released by podcaster Steven Crowder on Monday.
“Kill those kids!!! Those crackers going to private fancy schools with those fancy khakis + sports backpacks w/ their daddies mustangs + convertables [sic],” the 28-year-old female shooter wrote in a diary entry dated February 3.
“I wish to shoot you weakass d—ks w/ your mop yellow hair, wanna kill all you little crackers! Bunch of little f—gots w/ your white privileges,” she wrote.
Three photographs of the pages of the shooter’s diary were obtained by Crowder, who reported that his investigative team independently confirmed the authenticity of the images. The Daily Wire’s sources have also confirmed the authenticity of the pages.
🚨 BREAKING: Nashville School Covenant Shooter Audrey Hale’s “DEATH DAY” Manifesto Targeted “Cr*ckers” with “white privlages”
“wanna kill all you little cr*ckers”
“I hope I have a high death count”
"I'm ready…I hope my victims aren't."

The diary entries also reveal her schedule for “death day,” beginning at 7 a.m. (“get dressed”) and ending after 12:37 p.m. with “time 2 die.”
“I hope I have a high death count. Ready to die haha,” she wrote in a diary entry dated March 27, the day horror struck Covenant School.
The musings reflect the envy for stable, productive society that is targeted as “dominant” and “privileged” by the Critical Race Theory espoused in many public schools.
The shooter, who The Daily Wire is not naming, boasted to a friend before the shooting that she had left plenty of evidence behind making her motives clear. Nashville’s police acknowledged this fact after the shooting.
After the shooting, Nashville police chief John Drake promised Republican Gov. Bill Lee that the manifesto would “soon” be released.
“The Covenant shooting was a tragedy beyond comprehension, & Tennesseans need clarity. We’ve been in touch with the Nashville Police Department, & today, Chief Drake assured me that documents & information regarding the shooter will be released to the public very soon,” Lee said on April 27.
But Drake broke that promise. For the better part of a year, Nashville’s police department refused to release the manifesto, citing a series of contradictory excuses. A spokeswoman for Lee ignored The Daily Wire’s inquiries about Lee’s response to the broken promise over the course of this year.
The Metropolitan Police Department and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations denied open records requests from The Daily Wire, the Tennessee Star, and other outlets, citing that it was an ongoing investigation — even though the shooter was dead.
The Star and others sued, and the police department then claimed it could not release the manifesto because it was the subject of litigation — a catch-22 given that the litigation was about its refusal to release the manifesto.
A Nashville judge later allowed parents of Covenant attendees to intervene in the open records lawsuit to claim that releasing the manifesto would traumatize their children, even though Attorney Robb Harvey, who represents two plaintiffs, said the parents are not crime victims under the law and that their concerns are only speculative since they don’t know what’s contained in the records.
Tennessee law enforcement authorities also claimed they were asked by the FBI not to release the manifesto – even though, in another catch-22, the FBI said it was not terrorism, and therefore the FBI had no jurisdiction.
The writings may raise questions about why the killing of schoolchildren, apparently based on their race, was not considered a hate crime by the FBI. The shooter, and the children she targeted based on their race, were white.
The ramblings also call the children “f–gots” and evoke stereotypes of traditional masculine children.
A Nashville city council member, Courtney Johnson, told The New York Post that she was led to believe that the manifesto was a “blueprint on total destruction” that would be “astronomically dangerous” if released. The detailed agenda obtained by Crowder does not include any detail that would be useful to copycats, it merely says to take guns, go to the school, and begin shooting.
Russ Pulley, a Nashville city council member and former FBI agent, was dismissive when asked by The Daily Wire on the status of the manifesto earlier this year, saying he trusts the police.
A spokesman for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation told the AP that under state law, legislators could access the records if a committee passes a resolution, but they have not done so. A spokeswoman for Lee told AP that the governor can also review the records under state law, but he has declined from doing so until police “provide clarity” on them for the public.
