Former S.C. GOP official: Transgender people are ‘disgusting freaks’


The former executive director of the South Carolina Republican Party, says transgender people are “disgusting freaks” and should be rounded up and “put in a camp.”

Todd Kincannon began the Twitter tirade earlier this week in response to transgender activist Kat Haché, who replied to one of Kincannon’s tweets on an unrelated topic.

Using transphobic slurs, Kincannon wrote that he thought transgender people “should all be put in a camp” because they are all “disgusting freaks.”

This is not the first time Kincannon has posted transphobic remarks. Earlier this month, he posted these tweets:

Kincannon claims he was attempting to open a debate on the issue.

The Republican Party in South Carolina has in the past distanced itself from Kincannon, saying that he only served as leader for three months.
