In the wake of two mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, Ohio State Rep. Candice Keller (R-Ohio) posted a bizarre Facebook rant where she blamed “the breakdown of the traditional American family (thank you, transgender, homosexual marriage, and drag queen advocates)” and many more. 

Keller also offered an offensive attack on Democrats for playing “blame game” after mass shootings. She then ranted on about everything she thinks is wrong with America, the post read:


“After every mass shooting, liberals start the blame game. Why not put the blame where it belongs?


A week of political news in your in-box.
We find the news you need to know, so you don't have to.

The breakdown of the traditional American family (thank you, transgender, homosexual marriage, and drag queen advocates); fatherlessness, a subject no one discusses 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 Amendment; and snowflakes, who can’t accept a duly-elected President. 

Did I forget anybody? The list is long. And the fury will continue.”

The post comes after the El Paso shooting, which killed 22, and Dayton shooting, which killed nine in under a minute. Keller comes from Middletown, Ohio, which is only 25 miles south of Dayton. 

Keller’s post was not well received by her local community. Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones told a local news source that “she doesn’t represent me, she doesn’t represent our community, she doesn’t represent the state or the country,” after calling for her resignation.

A tweet from Ohio’s Attorney General Dave Yost stated, “The blame belongs to the evil man who killed those people.”


In May, Keller announced that she will run for Senate in 2020.
