Biden Honors Nonbinary Teen Who Attacked Classmates, Then Committed Suicide

President Biden put out a statement in honor of a self-described nonbinary teenager who attacked classmates and later committed suicide. The president has yet to release a statement honoring Laken Riley, the 22-year-old Georgia nursing student who was brutally murdered by an illegal alien savage.

Nex Benedict, a student at a high school in Owasso, Oklahoma, got into an altercation after claiming that a group of girls had been targeting her. Benedict admitted to starting the fight in a video filmed by police officers.

Here’s how PBS News described the incident:

In the video from the hospital the day of the altercation, Nex explains to an officer that the girls had been picking on them and their friends because of the way they dressed. Nex claims that in the bathroom the girls said: “Something like, ‘Why do they laugh like that,” referring to Nex and their friends.

“And so I went up there and I poured water on them, and then all three of them came at me,” Nex tells the officer while reclining in a hospital bed.

“They came at me. They grabbed on my hair. I grabbed onto them. I threw one of them into a paper towel dispenser and then they got my legs out from under me and got me on the ground,” Nex says in the video, adding that the girls then started beating Nex and they blacked out.

The police officer warned Benedict that if she pressed charges, that she, too, could be arrested for starting the fight.

The following day Benedict was rushed back to the hospital where she died. The cause of death was ruled as a suicide.

Yet, LGBT groups advanced the false narrative that Benedict had been beaten to death by classmates in the school.

“The assault on Nex is an inevitable result of the hateful rhetoric and discriminatory legislation targeting Oklahoma trans youth,” said groups Lambda Legal, the American Civil Liberties Union, and the ACLU of Oklahoma in a joint statement.

“We are deeply troubled by reports the school failed to respond appropriately to the altercation that preceded Nex’s death and demand a thorough, open investigation into the matter,” the statement read.

Following, is the president’s statement:

Jill and I are heartbroken by the recent loss of Nex Benedict. Every young person deserves to have the fundamental right and freedom to be who they are, and feel safe and supported at school and in their communities. Nex Benedict, a kid who just wanted to be accepted, should still be here with us today. 

Nonbinary and transgender people are some of the bravest Americans I know. But nobody should have to be brave just to be themselves. In memory of Nex, we must all recommit to our work to end discrimination and address the suicide crisis impacting too many nonbinary and transgender children. Bullying is hurtful and cruel, and no one should face the bullying that Nex did. Parents and schools must take reports of bullying seriously. My prayers are with Nex’s family, friends, and all who loved them – and to all LGBTQI+ Americans for whom this tragedy feels so personal, know this: I will always have your back.

To LGBTQI+ young people across the country – you are loved exactly as you are. If you’re feeling overwhelmed or alone, you can call or text 988, the National Crisis Hotline, and dial the number ‘3’ to talk to a counselor who has been specifically trained to support LGBTQI+ youth.

President Biden

The truth is that Biden is all but ignoring the murder of Laken Riley because it does not fit his narrative – that everyone coming across the southern border is a law-abiding migrant.

And the shocking number of attacks committed by the LGBT community should be a wakeup call to all of us.

The death of Nex Benedict is no doubt a terrible tragedy, but the tragedy was compounded by Democrats who are using a false narrative to score cheap political points.

Are you tired of the Biden Administration cramming the LGBT agenda down the throats of our kids?
