W.Va. GOP Lawmaker Compares Gay Community to the Ku Klux Klan

“The LGBTQ is a modern day version of the Ku Klux Klan, without wearing hoods with their antics of hate.”

— West Virginia Delegate Eric Porterfield (R) compared the gay community to the Ku Klux Klan after an anti-gay and lesbian rant he delivered in committee, the West Virginia Mail Gazette reports. He also called the gay community a “terrorist group” and said he is being “persecuted” by the gay community in retaliation for his remarks, including receiving threats on Facebook and voicemails.
