On Tuesday’s edition of his “TruNews” program, End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles unleashed a transphobic rant against Pennsylvania Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine in which he called on the residents of the state to rise up and “chase that freak out of the state.”
Wiles, a virulent anti-Semite, bigot, and conspiracy theorist whose TruNews network has nevertheless regularly received White House press credentials from the Trump administration, was outraged by Levine’s announcement that the state was expanding its mask requirements in an effort to stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus, prompting him to respond with a bigoted attack on Levine, who is transgender.
“That’s a man in a dress,” Wiles fumed. “You’re mentally ill, Dr. Levine. You’re mentally ill, and no normal person should listen to you. You need mental health counseling. You need deliverance.”
“To the people of Pennsylvania,” he continued, “you are absolutely insane if you let that transvestite freak rule your life. … You’re going to that transvestite freak? Seriously?”
“Chase that freak out of the state,” Wiles bellowed. “Chase it out of the state. Rise up in Pennsylvania, and chase that freak out of the state! You don’t have to tolerate this stuff.”
