According to this Republican, LGBT issues and sexual concepts shouldn’t be presented to children in public schools. Robinson stated this in his speech at Asbury Baptist Church this June.
“There’s no reason anybody anywhere in America should be telling any child about transgenderism, homosexuality, any of that filth,” Robinson stated in a video posted recently. “And yes, I called it filth, and if you don’t like that I called it filth, come see me, and I’ll explain it to you.”
North Carolina's Lt. Governor, Mark Robinson, just angrily referred to the LGBTQ community as "filth."
Then he says, "Yes, I called it filth."
There's no debate here. This is open discrimination. It is completely unacceptable.

Once the video was shared, Deputy White House press secretary and North Carolina native Andrew Bates criticized Robinson and categorized his comments as repugnant and offensive.
Democrat North Carolina State Senators Jeff Jackson and Wiley Nickel stated that Robinson has to resign because he was “a disgrace and an embarrassment to our state,” said Nickel.
I agree with @JeffJacksonNC. Mark Robinson is a disgrace and an embarrassment to our state – he should resign immediately.
I stand with the LGBTQ Community and hope you will join me in condemning this hate speech from the most senior Republican elected official in our state. https://t.co/AckGzuIdA3

In one FB video from this Saturday, the governor answered to the outrage, announcing that he would “continue to fight for the rights of our children to receive an education that is free from sexual concepts that do not belong in the classroom.”
He showed various images from the graphic and inappropriate books that were given to elementary school students.
“Let me tell you plainly right here and right now: I will not back down,” Robinson said in the video posted to Facebook. “I will not be silenced, and I will not be bullied into submission. I will continue to fight for the rights of our children to receive an education that is free from sexual concepts that do not belong in the classroom.”
