Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO), who just earned her GED last year, said on Steve Bannon’s ‘War Room’ podcast in March that the Equality Act is about the “supremacy of gays, lesbians and transvestites.”
The Equality Act seeks to ban discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
But Boebert said there is no “equality” involved with the legislation.
The “so-called Equality Act,” she said, is “just the Democrats using a play on words.”
“There is nothing about equality in that act,” Boebert continued. “If anything, it’s the supremacy of gays and lesbians and transvestites.”
“It’s about putting them higher than anyone else. It’s not about equality. If you look at the Constitution, then that is where equality is kept secure and held sacred,” she said.
