Appearing with far-right Fox News host Tucker Carlson Dec. 27 on his Fox Nation show “Tucker Carlson Today,” Libs of TikTok owner Chaya Raichik said of LGBTQ people: “They’re bad people. They’re evil people. And they want to groom kids. They’re recruiting.”

Raichik’s Twitter account has spewed anti-LGBTQ hate speech with special emphasis on singling out transgender youth in the U.S., attacking health care professionals who provide gender-affirming care — including Children’s Hospitals in Boston, Nashville and Washington, D.C. — which has led her over 1 million followers to pummel those medical facilities with hate-filled online abuse, escalating to criminal acts including bomb threats and death threats against doctors.

Speaking with Carlson, Raichik said:

“There’s something so unique about — the LGBTQ community has become this cult and it’s so captivating and it pulls people in so strongly unlike anything we’ve ever seen and they brainwash people to join. They convince them of all of these things. And it’s really hard to get out of it.

“There are a lot of parents who let their kids [express their gender identity]. And there are a lot of parents who are grooming their kids into doing this. There are a lot of parents who are told that either you have a dead kid or you have a trans kid, so it’s really coming from higher up than just the parents.

“And they convince them of all these things and it’s really, really hard to get out of it. It’s really difficult.

“I think they’re evil. And sometimes we try to break it down a lot and we discuss why this is happening, what’s happening, whatever, and I think sometimes the simplest answer is they’re just evil.

“They’re bad people. They’re evil people. And they want to groom kids. They’re recruiting.”

“This interview with the creator of Libs Of TikTok is sick. @TuckerCarlson nods along as she says that LGBTQ people are all ‘evil pedophiles’ recruiting to a ‘cult.’ [Fox News] bankrolls it. Amplifies it. Then calls you a liar when violence ensues,” wrote Brandon Wolf, Equality Florida’s press secretary and survivor of the June 2016 Pulse Nightclub shooting.

Alejandra Caraballo, a Clinical Instructor at Harvard Law School’s Cyberlaw Clinic and a former staff attorney at the Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund and a Staff Attorney at the LGBTQ Law Project at New York Legal Assistance Group, took to Twitter to comment how Raichik laughs in the interview about her bullying.
