NC Lt. Gov. Faces Calls To Resign After Calling LGBTQ People ‘Filth’

North Carolina’s Lt. Governor Mark Robinson is catching well-deserved blowback after calling the LGBTQ community “filth.”

The Republican’s remark were actually made in June at Asbury Baptist Church in Seagrove. But a clip of the speech went viral on Tuesday when it was shared by Right Wing Watch.

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

In August Robinson told constituents that any public officer holder who gets vaccinated against the coronavirus “needs to be voted out of office.”

Robinson made similar remarks last week at the North Carolina Values Coalition’s 10th anniversary celebration.

He urged parents to stand up to school boards and school administrators who are “pushing these perverted agendas, to try to teach our children that they’re really not boys or girls, or they’re shoving this homosexuality garbage down their throats.”

Filth. Garbage. I think I see who has an agenda here.

Many in North Carolina called Robinson out for his hateful rhetoric calling for his resignation.
