GOP politician calls trans people ‘disgusting freaks’, should be put in ‘camps’

A GOP politician has called trans people ‘disgusting freaks’ that should be put in ‘camps’.

Todd Kincannon, former executive director of the South Carolina Republican Party, has been heavily criticized for his rant on transgender people.

After a trans activist, Kat Haché, replied to one of Kincannon’s tweets, he launched into a tirade of slurs and hate speech.

‘There are people who respect transgender rights. And there are people who think you should all be put in a camp. That’s me,’ he said.

When he started to get a negative response, Kincannon added: ‘I have plenty of compassion for trannies.

‘They should all be locked up in mental institutions and their care paid for by the state.

‘I have no problem with gays but I hate trannies. I think they are disgusting freaks, and they are. Am I evil?’

Describing gays as being ‘ok’ and female bisexuality as the ‘Mona Lisa of genital sports’, Kincannon was lambasted for being sexist and transphobic.

‘The only things I hate these days are commies, trannies and most Muslims,’ he finished.

He later went on to claim his rant was only an example of the ‘Overton window’, which refers to the range of political ideas that the public will accept.

In other words, if trans people were locked in concentration camps then it might make the idea of denying trans people equal recognition under the law seem more acceptable.

The Republican Party in South Carolina has in the past distanced itself from Kincannon, saying he only served as leader for three months.
