Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) on Wednesday unleashed an angry tirade against the Equality Act that would make it illegal to discriminate against Americans on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.
While appearing on former Trump White House political strategist Steve Bannon's "War Room" podcast, Boebert insisted that the Equality Act would actually put non-LGBT Americans at a disadvantage compared to their gay and transgender peers.
"There is nothing about equality in that act!" Boebert said, even though the act itself is titled the Equality Act. "If anything, it's, the, uh, it's supremacy of gays, lesbians and transvestites. This is what this is about, it's about putting them higher than anyone else!"
There is nothing in the Equality Act that establishes a doctrine of LGBT supremacy.
Boebert also insisted that all the equality we need in the United States can be found in the Constitution's 14th Amendment, even though that amendment in and of itself was not sufficient to secure past civil rights victories for Black Americans and women.
