The West Virginia Democratic Party (WVDP) is calling for a Republican delegate to resign their centers as "hateful statements and acts" in relation to the LGBT community.
"At first, the Envoy [Eric] Porterfield must resign, "said WVDP Chairman, Belinda Biafore, in a statement shared on Facebook last Friday." West Virginia has no place for a person who shows such a hate. It is a unit for him to hold a public office where he is supposed to represent the people of West Virginia. His statements and acts speak hate-filling amounts and so the Republican Party makes a break. "
"The leadership of the Republican majority must confirm these actions," continued the statement. "Taster is a problem and people in West Virginia have better people."
Porterfield took the "f" t "during committee meetings last Wednesday when legal reforms discussed a proposed amendment of anti-discrimination protections for LGBT people, according to The West Virginia Gazette Mail.
He also said that he did so "The LGBT is the most social group in this country" during the meetings.
He told the Gazette in the Friday interview that "The LGBTQ is a modern version of Ku Klux Klan, without throwing hoods, with their hatred acquisitions."
He also directed the gay community as a "terrorist group" and added that the homosexual community was being followed by a "homosexual community" because of its previous statements.
Western House Chairman, Roger Hanshaw (R), said last week he wanted to talk to Porterfield before he commented directly on his statements.
"I hope no one would make those types of statement," he said. "It seems that I never wanted to assert anything, but I would like to speak to him before I comment on what he said."
GOP Chairwoman, West Virginia, Melody Potter, said Monday's statement that Porterfield's comments were "fierce" and "harmful" and "the values of our country, our state and the Republican Party" did not show. "
"These opinions are not acceptable and we have to reject them. They have no place in America," Potter said.
Huffington Post reported that Porterfield held his comments on the LGBT community on Saturday in view of the WVVA Bluefield station.
His office did not immediately respond to a request for comments from The Hill.
