Disgraced HGTV never-weres the Benham Brothers are keeping their anti-LGBT “Christian” hate brand alive by now saying that laws that allow trans people to use restrooms that correspond with their gender identity and laws that allow same-sex couples to marry aren’t really about those civil rights issues at all – they’re about allowing the Devil to cause chaos! CHAOS THEY SAID!
In a Facebook video posted last week that’s been viewed well over 8 million times, Jason Benham says the Obama administration is “basically mandating that all public schools in the entire nation, that we have to open up our bathrooms – especially girls’ bathrooms – to boys.” It’s unclear why he says “especially girls’ bathrooms.”
Benham goes on to claim, “the fact that the Department of Justice and Obama and Department of Education is doing this, it’s leading us into absolute chaos.”
“Here’s the interesting thing,” says Benham, who, with his brother David and father, extremist street preacher Flip Benham, have spent years in North Carolina attacking the LGBT community. “You guys remember the movie ‘The Dark Knight,’ when the Joker is hanging off the building and Batman is holding on to him and Batman’s like, ‘What do you want?’ and the Joker just says, ‘Chaos!’? Well that’s what we are experiencing right now,” he concludes.
“Today, having transgender folks go into bathrooms, that’s going to open up a loophole for deviant men to go in and prey upon our women and girls,” he claims, falsely. “That’s still not the issue. The issue is the revolution, and the revolution is chaos,” he insists, when in reality, the issue is people just need to pee.
