Algerian Interior Minister describes political opponents as homosexuals and traitors; Journalist: The Minister is the homosexual

Algerian Interior Minister Salah Eddine Damoune said ahead of the General elections set to take place on December 12, 2019 that “colonialist ideology” exploits “Algerian children – or rather, quasi-Algerians, who are traitors, mercenaries, queers, and homosexuals.” His remarks were made on December 3, 2019 on Beladi TV (Algeria).

On the same day, Algerian journalist Alsaid Bensedira said on Al-Hurra TV (U.S.) that the Algerian people demand that the elections be boycotted and the Interior Minister, whom he referred to as “queer effeminate” is fired immediately. He concluded that he doesn’t know any homosexuals, if the Interior Minister knows homosexuals he must be one of them.
