A candidate has calls to resign after August West after comparing LGBT people with the KKK |

(CNN) – A member of the West Western House of Messengers has a decentralized signal for a string of anti-LGBT statements, but does not seem to be supporting the Republican legislator.

The history of anti-LGBT situations is by the deputy Eric Porterfield, which represents the 27th West of Western area. But things came to last last week during House meetings over a proposed amendment of anti-LGBT discrimination bill.

During the meeting of February 6, Porterfield asked the bill, including LGBT people as a protected class under the Human Rights Act, "bigoted," "intolerant" and "discriminatory."

"The LGBT is the most socialist group in this country," continued according to Charleston Gazette-Mail. "They do not care gay. Many guys are persecuted if they do not meet their social ideology."

Porterfield has already framed for LGBT defenses as a breach of free speech.

His comments were reactive quickly. On Thursday, his House of Democrats met Porterfield because of his views. On Friday, the West Virginia Democratic Party issued a statement requesting the retirement of Porterfield.

"West Virginia has no place for anyone who shows such a hatred," WVDP Chairman Belina Biafore wrote.

But Porterfield took the opportunity to double his statement. On the morning of Friday, he asked the Gazette-Mail offices, which published a section on the Democratic poll for their statements.

In the phone call, the news outlet reported, Porterfield called his listeners "brutal monsters" and gave him a "terrorist group" for the LGBT community. He also compared them to the KKK.

"LGBTQ is a modern version of the Ku Klux Klan, without throwing hives, with their lack of hatred," he said.

The Phorterfield office did not answer CNN's calls and emails trying to make traffic.

A few days later, the lawyer followed his commentary line. During an interview with the WVVA local TV station, Porterfield, wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat, gave a rough answer when he asked what he would do if he had a gay son or daughter.

"Well, I'll face my daughter first. I would have her for a pedicure, I would like to take her to make her nails, and she could see if she could swim," said Porterfield when she was smiling "If he was my son, he probably would hunt him, I would like to fish him, then I see if he could do a swim."

"I just want to make sure they could swim," he said when he was asked to clarify his views.

Some of the West Virginia Republican leaders criticized their statements, and on Monday, the words of Phorterfield were officially rejected by West Virginia GOP West Virginia.

"These comments are not acceptable and we play for them," said Melody Potter, Chairman of the West Virginia Republican Party. "There's no place in America."

The office took last month Porterfield, resigning from withdrawing Marty Gearheart from a Republican delegate. The person is a Baptist missionary for 44 years of age and is blind to losing his vision in 2006.

During his campaign, Porterfield decided to adopt the Mental Health Protection Act, a bill that failed to state the state legislature in 2018 despite planned support. Porterfield said the bill, which would prevent conversion therapy for LGBT minors, violated free speech and asked his "supportive and discriminatory supporters".
