GOP Politician Compares LGBT’s to the KKK

Executive Summary:

  • Sarkes has connected the Dots where most do not see the Dots
  • The incidence of blatant hatred against people of color and the LGBT Community has increased since the election of the Orange MLK

Sarkes must start this incredible story with a History Lesson for the young Sarkes Corner subscribers who may have the FALSE belief that all Americans have always had Equal Rights.

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 ended segregation in public places and banned employment discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin, which areoften referred to as “covered classes”.  

The LGBT community was NOT covered in the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  Currently, there is no federal law that explicitly prohibits discrimination against LGBT people.  This leaves it up to the individual states to pass laws to protect LGBT people from discrimination in public places and the workplace.  Only 22 states have enacted such legislation.

That’s where this incredible story starts.  West Virginia is currently considering an Anti-LGBT Discrimination Bill.  Rich Old White Man; GOP Lawmaker, Eric Porterfield, who represents West Virginia’s 27th district, has a history of anti-LGBT stances. But here, bigot Porterfield has out done himself.

West Virginia GOP State Legislator Eric Porterfield is a proud Bigot

During deliberations of the Anti-LGBT Discrimination Bill, Bigot Porterfield called the bill, which would include LGBT people as a protected class under West Virginia Human Rights Act, “bigoted,” “intolerant” and “discriminatory.”

Huh, uh, what, ummm, oh my, what did he say? 

Bigot Porterfield continued:  “The LGBT community is the most Socialist group in this country.  They do not protect gays. There are many gays they persecute if they do not line up with their social ideology.”   Bigot Porterfield has said that legislation for LGBT protections is a violation of free speech.

Huh, uh, what, ummm, oh my, what did he say? 

Reaction to Bigot Porterfield’s  comments was swift and from both Dems and GOPs. West Virginia House Democrats condemned Porterfield for his comments and called for him to resign.

But like the his hero, the Orange Counterpuncher, Bigot Porterfield Doubled Down on his comments.    Bigot Porterfield called his critics “brutal monsters” and called the LGBT community a “terrorist group.” He also compared them to the KKK, stating:  “The LGBTQ is a modern-day version of the Ku Klux Klan, without wearing hoods, with their antics of hate.”

Huh, uh, what, ummm, oh my, what did he say? 

A few days later, Bigot Porterfield Tripled Down.  During an interview with local TV station WVVA, Bigot Porterfield, proudly wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat, was asked what he would do if he had a son or daughter who was gay.

Einstein Porterfield answered:   “Well, I will address my daughter first. I would take her for a pedicure, I’d take her to get her nails done, and see if she could swim. If it was my son, I would probably take him hunting, I would take him fishing, then I’d see if he could swim.”

When asked to clarify these incredible statements, Bigot Porterfield answered:  “I just want to make sure they could swim.”

Huh, uh, what, ummm, oh my, what did he say? 

Bigot Porterfield proudly wears his MAGA hat, along with Cammo clothing, a fashion must for Trumps Base

As a proud GOP Law Maker in West Virginia, Bigot Porterfield was instrumental in killing a previous Bill that would have banned conversion therapy for LGBT minors.  His rational was that the Bill was a violation of free speech and called its supporters “bigoted and discriminatory.”  Like Vice President Pence, Bigot Porterfield believes that conversion therapy works. 

Huh, uh, what, ummm, oh my, what did he say? 

No, Sarkes cannot make this stuff up.  Our US Constitution gives all Americans the Right to have beliefs like Bigot Porterfield.  Heck, state Legislatures in Bright Red states are full of them.

The incidence of blatant hatred against people of color and the LGBT Community has increased since the election of the Orange MLK.  Coincidence?  Sarkes thinks not.
