Todd Kincannon: Transgender People Should Be Put In Concentration Camps

Self-proclaimed “country lawyer” Todd Kincannon is at it again. He took to Twitter this week to express his disgust for transgender people, or “trannies” as he likes to refer to them.

On Monday, the former  executive director of the South Carolina GOP tweeted that he believed transgender people should be put in camps:

That was followed up by another tweet in which he said:

Later he added:

Paid for by the state? That doesn’t seem in line with GOP values.

In the past, Kincannon has said he intentionally likes to tweet offensive things just to get a rise out of people, telling the Huffington Post in February: “One of the things I like to do on Twitter is I’ll tweet something inflammatory, kind of borderline crazy-sounding just for fun. And I enjoy watching people go nuts.” On Monday, he echoed this sentiment in a tweet, writing:

For the record, Kincannon is 32. Though his motivations sound like those of an emotionally disturbed 12-year-old with far too much time on his hands.

Some of Kincannon’s other tweets include:






Not surprisingly, Kincannon’s tweets have caused an uproar. Also not surprising is that fact that he is refusing to apologize.

Perhaps Kincannon’s time would be better spent updating his law firm’s crappy homemade website rather than spewing hateful nonsense. Just a thought.

    What a total crack-head!

    With all of his ignorance in print, at least there is no need to worry about this idiot winning any national elections. South Carolina will have to keep him.

  • Polaro

    Seriously bad man.

  • ho

    Oh great, so a cross eyed, pasty, no-lips, chub
    is telling us what a weirdo is. What a charmer.

  • Lawerence

    This vile repugnant homophobic, transphobic arrogant hypocritical soulless demonic zombie Rethuglican sheeple doth protest too much! Makes me wonder what’s on his Internet browser?!
    He comes across the boy who pulls the transgender girls pigtails, claiming how much he hates her, only to go home and draw her name in hearts!

  • retropian

    I think it is becoming more generally acknowledged that many homophobes are desperately trying to deflect attention away from their own sexual preferences. They think that by hating on gay people, transexuals etc. others will take them as straight. They don’t understand that ever greater numbers of people understand it’s a ruse. So, I think he’s attracted to transexuals, or drag queens, otherwise why so many comments about them?

  • Aaron

    He just wants a show. Over it.

  • litper

    People can be trans if they want, it really shouldn’t be a part of gay movement. These people run away from their sexuality by changing gender and actually are against gay people.

  • Harley

    So he is basically saying if you don’t conform to the 1950’s version of family life then you are a freak. How boring. It’s the infinite diversity in the human experience that makes humans great. He also ignores the fact that homosexuality is prevalent among many species. We have two gay penguins in the Dallas world aquarium. Love ‘me.

  • Thedrdonna

    @litper: That ignores the 2/3 of trans people who identify as bi or gay post-transition.

  • Chutney

    @Harley: How can you say such a thing? You obviously know absolutely nothing about what it means to be trans. We are not running away from our sexuality, at all. The condition of our births deny us our sexuality and physical identity. I would not wish this condition on my worst enemy. Before you make such global condemning statements, you really should know the facts on the matter.

    Do you even have any idea how many of our community are unable to cope with life trapped in the wrong body and take their own life? About 50% of us don’t make it to puberty, Of those of that do survive puberty, almost half are dead by the time they reach 25 to 30. Most of these survivors end up pushed out of society because no one wants us around. Unable to find conventional employment, many trans folk turn to sex work; especially the male to female group.

    More than half of those that turn to sex work are murdered or commit suicide, or are imprisoned within 5 to 10 years. The few that remain have to live with the stigma of all of the rest of the community’s reputation hanging over our heads. In the past, very few of us make it to be fully mature adults.

    The transgender community has the highest targeted bullying rate, the highest death rate (suicide and murder), the highest drug and alcohol abuse rate, and the highest rate of criminal conviction of the entire LGBT community. In all fairness, be willing to give us some credit for working so very hard to survive in this world.

  • Chutney

    Todd Kincannon is a prime example of the very reason that there is such a high rate of failure and death in the trans community. He should be declared a hate group of one.

  • genmes

    Is he really 32? He looks way older than that. Maybe being a douchebag will make you age faster.
