Right-wing commentator, conspiracy theorist and Donald Trump–obsessed sycophant Wayne Allyn Root unleashed a rant on his radio program last Friday, warning that America is headed for a civil war because the state of California is banning non-essential state travel to a handful of states that have enacted laws allowing discrimination against LGBTQ people.
“Are we headed for civil war?” Root asked. “I feel like it’s 1860 again and we’re in the months before a civil war in the United States of America.”
“Can you imagine how sick these people are?” he continued. “You can’t ban a Muslim from America who comes from a country that hates America and is rife with terrorism and they kill people left and right for being Christians, Jews or Americans and you don’t want to let them in the country because you want your children to be safe and that’s no good? But, God forbid, you ban transgender bathrooms, California say no one can travel there anymore … So it’s okay to ban American states because they don’t like transgender people who are confused whether they have a penis or a vagina?”
“This is so stupid that it defies description, but it’s also a sign of mental illness,” Root ranted. “Liberals are mentally ill … We’re out of our minds and we’re headed for civil war, it’s pretty clear.”
“These people are crazy,” he said. “They want a war. They don’t like you and me, they want to hurt us or kills us! These people are absolutely nuts … Crazy liberal nutcases, unhinged, need a rubber room, straitjacket people!”
