Former Trump campaign attorney, convicted felon, and anti-LGBTQ+ extremist Jenna Elllis praised Colorado Republican Party chair and U.S. House candidate Dave Williams for his recent call for people to “burn all the Pride flags.”

“While the national Republican Party has largely embraced the LGBTQ agenda because they say they want to create a quote, unquote, ‘big tent,’ there still remains committed conservative Christians who are rejecting Pride Month because, let’s face it, we should as conservatives,” Ellis recently told Williams on the June 10 edition of Salem News Channel’s Jenna Ellis Tonight.

“Dave, I have to say I commend you strongly for standing up so firmly for what should be a position of the entire Republican Party. Why is it that there are so few Republicans that, in 2024, are unwilling to take this very clear stand against an evil agenda?” she continued.

“I commend you for standing so strongly. And I wish that every conservative would have that same outlook that if we lose, it’s because we’ve lost the culture and politics is downstream from a culture, but we still need to stand firm regardless,” she added.

An email that Williams sent earlier this month said, “The month of June has arrived and, once again, the godless groomers in our society want to attack what is decent, holy, and righteous so they can ultimately harm our children…. These degenerates want to violate our children and their innocence.” A subsequent social media post on X from the Colorado Republican Party told followers, “Burn all the #pride flags this June.”

Ellis — who was convicted of a felony in October 2023 for aiding and abetting false statements to help former President Donald Trump try to overturn the results of the 2020 election — regularly makes anti-LGBTQ+ comments.

She has called Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg and his husband, Chasten Buttigieg, “sexual perverts” because they’re gay dads. Prior to that, she linked an article about the Stonewall Inn – the site of the most legendary LGBTQ+ protest in U.S. history – being made a national monument and wrote: “A national monument to our open embrace and celebration of sin.”
