NEW TRUMP APPOINTEE TO FOREIGN AID AGENCY HAS DENOUNCED LIBERAL DEMOCRACY AND “OUR HOMO-EMPIRE”

June 5, 2020

Politico reported last year that Corrigan wrote on her Twitter account that "our homo-empire couldn’t tolerate even one commercial enterprise not in full submission to the tyrannical LGBT agenda."

TRUMP APPOINTEE AT USAID REPEATEDLY MADE ANTI-IMMIGRANT AND ANTI-LGBTQ COMMENTS, SAID 'FEMALE EMPOWERMENT IS A CIVILIZATIONAL CALAMITY'

Corrigan previously worked at Hungary's Embassy in the US where she repeatedly tweeted support for far-right Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, calling him "the shining champion of Western civilization," according to ProPublica, which reported on several of Corrigan's tweets on June 5.

TRUMP-APPOINTED PATRICK HENRY GRAD GARNERS ATTENTION WITH EYEBROW-RAISING TWEETS

July 11, 2020

CNN’s June 29 report looked at hundreds of Corrigan’s deleted tweets retrieved from an internet archive. A bunch of those lauded far-right European politicians and political parties and argued women belong in the home rather than working outside it.


Others took aim at legal immigration and gay rights. One addressed the sonnet by poet Emma Lazarus that’s cast on the base of the Statue of Liberty ('Give me your tired, your poor/ Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free').


When someone else tweeted "The poem on the Statue of Liberty should be ceremoniously destroyed," Corrigan tweeted back, "Soooo true the cursed poem."

TRUMP APPOINTEE MERRITT CORRIGAN FIRED FROM USAID AMID ANTI-LGBTQ TWEETS

Aug 3, 2020

She had written on Twitter on Monday, before her termination was announced, "For too long, I’ve remained silent as the media has attacked me for my Christian beliefs, which are shared by the majority of Americans. Let me [be] clear: Gay marriage isn’t marriage. Men aren’t women. US-funded Tunisian LGBT soap operas aren’t America First."
