North Carolina Republican Lt. Governor Mark Robinson, currently under fire for calling LGBTQ people "filth," made similar remarks about LGBTQ people just days ago.

Robinson's "filth" remarks included inherent defiance when he added, "yes, I called it filth. And if you don't like it that I called it filth, come see me and I'll explain it to you."

Those remarks were made in June during a speech he gave at a church and were surfaced last week by Right Wing Watch.

But on October 1, at a celebration for the far right wing North Carolina Values Coalition, Robinson also made offensive and vile remarks about LGBTQ people.

The Lt. Governor, a far right conspiracy theorist, told the crowd school boards are "pushing these perverted agendas, to try to teach our children that they're really not boys or girls, or they're shoving this homosexuality garbage down their throats," as the Fayetteville Observer reported.

Robinson also lied about critical race theory and made anti-vaxx comments during his remarks.
