Talk radio show host Tammy Bruce is not only openly gay, she is also a proud conservative. She also has some thoughts about the intense backlash the state of Indiana has faced since passing the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, that LGBT activist will undoubtedly not like. Speaking with Tucker Carlson on Fox News’ Fox and Friends on Thursday morning, Bruce had some harsh criticism for the LGBT activists whose actions have caused Memories Pizza to shut down out of safety fears.
The owner of Memories Pizza, Crystal O’Connor, made a statement when asked by a local news station, ABC 57, about RFRA. She responded that although she would never and has never refused service to anyone, homosexuals included, she would not cater a same-sex wedding because it goes against her beliefs. That is when the firestorm to destroy her began.
The pizzeria has been targeted with death threats and threats of other acts of violence. There is also a concerted attempt to ruin the reputation of the business with LGBT activists flooding their Yelp page with negative reviews and vulgar pictures. These tactics, according to Bruce, make no sense and risk the gay rights movement turning into fascist bullies.
Bruce said, “If there’s anyone in the world who should understand the vulnerability of being a minority, of being somebody that maybe others don’t understand or relate to, the vulnerability about work and jobs, being able to live your life as you see fit, it’s the gay community.
She continued, “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 are different, and with whom we disagree is the antithesis of what every civil rights movement was about.”
Indiana’s Republican Governor Mike Pence and the Republican controlled legislature have already caved to the LGBT activists and those who distorted a law about religious freedom to wrongfully describe it as being an anti-gay law allowing for rampant discrimination. State leaders announced the changes they are proposing to the law which essentially changes it from a law to restore religious freedom to one that completely and unconstitutionally takes religious freedom away.
