N.C. Lt. Governor Says ‘Transgenderism’ and ‘Homosexuality’ Are ‘Filth’

Gun News

North Carolina’s Lieutenant Governor Mark Robinson is at it again.

Seems the right wing super conservative, who also refers to himself as “a man of God,” just can’t stop embarrassing the state on a relatively regular basis with a variety of anti-LGBTQ comments.

On October 6, the progressive Right-Wing Watch website, a conservative watchdog organization, posted a clip on Twitter of Robinson speaking at Asbury Baptist Church in Seagrove, N.C. this past June 6, where he made the following comments:

“There’s no reason anybody, anywhere in America should be telling any child about transgenderism, homosexuality, any of that filth. And yes I called it filth. And if you don’t like that I called it filth, come see me, and I’ll explain it to you,” Robinson said in the video clip.

This isn’t the first time Robinson has attacked the LGBTQ community. In a story published in qnotes earlier this year, it was revealed that in 2016 he condemned gays and lesbians immediately following the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, heartily endorsed the National Rifle Association, and — in an apparent attempt to use transgender identity as an affront — even misidentified first lady Michelle Obama as “a man.”

Following the Pulse shooting: “Homosexuality is still an abominable sinm and I will not join in ‘celebrating gay pride.” 

After his election as the state’s Lieutenant Governor last year, his attempt at discrediting the state’s public school system through charges of a progressive and LGBTQ conspiracy have been relentless. His claim that efforts to compile data would endorse his assertions has been proven to be false. 

Since release of the footage, responses from other politicians in the state, an MCC Minister and even the Biden administration, have been forthcoming and direct. 

State Senators Jeff Jackson and Wiley Nickel immediately called for Robinson to step down. “There’s no debate here,” Jackson posted on Twitter, “This is open discrimination. It is completely unacceptable. Mark Robinson should resign.” 

Nickel concurred: “Mark Robinson is a disgrace and an embarrassment to our state. He should resign immediately. I stand with the LGBTQ Community and hope you will join me in condemning this hate speech from the most senior Republican elected official in our state.”

Gov. Roy Cooper’s office issued a statement through CNN: “North Carolina is a welcoming state. We value public education and the diversity of our people. It’s abhorrent to hear anyone, and especially an elected official, use hateful rhetoric that hurts people and our state’s reputation.”
