CHARLIE KIRK (HOST): This is the thing that people have to realize about the alphabet mafia. Is that it's not just about two dudes being able to get married. First it was like, no, we want to be able just to have social acceptance of, like, two women or two men together. That was, like, their first thing. Will & Grace, like, OK fine, whatever.
Then it was we need marriage because it's all about equality and love is love. Love is what we need. And then they won the -- I can never pronounce it, Obergefell decision in 2011, 2012. And so, then marriage equality was the law of the land. Overturning other states that believed marriage was one man and one woman. A national takeover of our laws, an unprecedented federal takeover, no one wanted to oppose them. Like, OK, this will get rid of the gay issue. That's what we thought, right?
And so there was this desire by, let's say peace-loving conservatives. And it was very tempting to fall into line here, and in some ways, I was young and naive and I fell into line with this too. There was this desire that the issue of gay marriage and LGBT whatever was going to go away. That it was, OK, marriage, now we can no longer talk about it. In fact, that was the argument that a lot of conservatives would give. That is the argument that a lot of conservatives would say in 2014, ‘15, ‘16. Let marriage happen, we'll never have to talk about it again.
Instead, it's the opposite. The opposite is that gay marriage happens and we're talking about gay stuff more than any other time. Why? Because they are not happy just having marriage. Instead, they now want to corrupt your children.
