An ultra-conservative Michigan mayor is facing the threat of recall after coming under fire for a series of bizarre proclamations about the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender LGBT community.

Daniels' latest remarks come just as a social media-led effort to recall the embattled mayor is reportedly picking up steam.

Some of my first vivid memories are the bombing of Pearl Harbor and the opening days of the Second World War and the first news about the attack came to us over the radio. It was to be a long while before the first television pictures were to make their way into coastal Carolina and radio was king. Families sat around their living rooms and listened to their favorite radio shows in the same fashion as the families who would gather around television sets a decade or so later.
