Donald Trump’s lawyer poses with far-right candidate who fears ‘homo-fanatic totalitarianism’
President Donald Trump’s lawyer has met and posed for pictures with a far-right candidate who said: “Don’t be gay, pray.”
Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s attorney and former Mayor of New York, was photographed with Faith Goldy, a 29-year-old YouTuber running to be Toronto’s Mayor who has been condemned for her anti-LGBT and white supremacist views.
Goldy has appeared on conspiracy theory-peddling online show InfoWars, which along with its alt-right host Alex Jones was earlier this year deleted by and banned from Facebook, Spotify, Apple, YouTube and Twitter, among others.
Last year, she posted a picture of a church on Instagram with the sentence: “pay Christ a visit this Good Friday heathens.” In the caption of this post, she added: “don’t be gay, P R A Y.”
In July, she used an anti-trans slur on Twitter, calling a transgender person a “tranny.”
The candidate also appeared on Canadian TV in 2014 to condemn “a homo-fanatic witch-hunt” which saw Mozilla boss Brendan Eich leave the company after it emerged that he opposed same-sex marriage.
Goldy said: “This is typical of the left these days. This is a new generation of totalitarianism.”
She branded homosexuality “a sinful lifestyle” on the same channel, the now-defunct Sun News Network.
In April, she claimed on Twitter that white people are “a vanishing race,” and was banned from crowd-funding platform Patreon after she smilingly recited a famous white supremacist slogan, saying: “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children.”
She has also been on The Krypto Report, a podcast produced by neo-Nazi outlet the Daily Stormer, which denies the Holocaust and advocates genocide.
Goldy, who is polling far behind the incumbent Mayor of Toronto, John Tory, captioned her photos with Giuliani, writing: “An honour to meet with America’s Mayor while on the campaign trail.

“I can’t wait to become Canada’s Mayor! Just like Giuliani cleaned up the streets of NYC, our tough on crime playbook is going to run illegal guns & gangs right out of Toronto!”
Last month, a swastika was found painted onto a rainbow walkway in Toronto’s Gay Village neighbourhood.
At this year’s Toronto Pride, a moment of silence was held for the victims of the alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur, who has been charged with the murders of eight men who all had ties to Toronto’s Gay Village.
Pride participants wore black T-shirts that read “we will not rest until we’re safe”, in protest of the slow pace of the investigation into the deaths of the victims McArthur is accused of murdering.
