That’s Houston hate-monger Steve Hotze talking about transgender people on Sam Malone’s right-wing radio program this past Monday. Hotze continues to take his victory lap following the repeal of the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance last month. Just listen to how Hotze and Malone ridicule and demonize transgender people. The ignorance and brazen bigotry would be shocking coming from almost anyone else:
Malone: It’s like you always said, “Alright, so I want to be a frog.” Then I go, “Dude, you’re not a frog.” “But I identify as a frog.” OK, but you’re not — you’re Steve. It’s a weird world.”
Hotze: It’s delusion. It’s deception and delusion. I think the whole thing is a Satanic movement on our country that is promoting evil of every kind and trying to force it upon the members of society. And men and women of faith have got to rise up and say we’re not going tolerate this. We’re gonna say no- this is unacceptable behavior, we’re not going promote it. And then we’re going to legitimize it and make it a minority class. Really?
