North Carolina Lt. Governor Mark Robinson, who recently said that transgenderism and homosexuality are “filth,” said he will neither back down, nor resign after left-wingers went on the attack.

“Let me tell you plainly right here and right now: I will not back down,” Robinson, a black Republican, said in a Facebook post. “I will not be silenced, and I will not be bullied into submission. I will continue to fight for the rights of our children to receive an education that is free from sexual concepts that do not belong in the classroom.”

“There’s no reason anybody anywhere in America should be telling any child about transgenderism, homosexuality, any of that filth,” he said. “And yes, I called it filth, and if you don’t like that I called it filth, come see me and I’ll explain it to you.”

Still, Robinson faces calls for his resignation from many corners of the liberal establishment.

Democrats North Carolina State Senator Jeff Jackson and North Carolina State Senator Wiley Nickel are calling on Robinson to resign. Nickel said Robinson is “a disgrace and an embarrassment to our state.”

Robinson, though, is remaining defiant.

“I will fight for and protect the rights of all citizens, including those in the LGBTQ community to express themselves however they want. That is their right as Americans and I don’t think that the government has any role in telling them otherwise,” Robinson said. “However, the idea that our children should be taught about concepts of transgenderism and be exposed to sexually explicit materials in the classroom is abhorrent.”
