TAMMY BRUCE, RADIO HOST: I say to every other gay person out there, especially young people: For you to turn into what we have been fighting against for generations. My activism began with Act Up, which was gay group dealing with AIDS issues in the 80s.
For me to turn around in the 21st century and see that this is what we were fighting for, so we could condemn people who were different, and with whom we disagree, it is the antithesis of what every civil rights movement was about.
TUCKER CARLSON: How were you treated as a prominent member of the community, somebody who is identified as gay, and yet you're taking this position?
TAMMY BRUCE: It's the natural position. There is a lot of fear in the gay community, if you do speak up in this regard -- and this is our natural position, of course. Because we are effectively whether you're liberals or libertarian, this is about being able to live lives as we see fit. As minorities. I think when you see a mob operating, there is fear, and you tend to retreat. And we saw this with Chick-fil-a. Everybody came to their defense when they were under attack by fascists, by bullies.
The gay liberals have turned into bullies, when our work is to stop that kind of behavior. I think that if I can serve as an example of being able to give permission in a way or serve as an example saying standing up for our values and what we believe in is what we need to be doing. And to defend, especially those who are under attack like Christians is exactly what our job should be.
