John Hawkins Interviews Tammy Bruce
Tammy Bruce, radio personality, author, and Open Source Media editorial board member is interviewed
by Right Wing News honcho John Hawkins.John Hawkins: In the book, you said: "The feminist establishment wanted people to be like stupid, submissive, noisy parrots." You pretty much confirmed that just now. Conservatives can be individuals; the left can’t. Why can’t you be an individual on the left?
Tammy Bruce: Well, it is as the left has done and has shown us historically; it is a basis of an existence of collectivism. That is what all of the energy is put into. It requires massive numbers of people to march lock-step within a certain framework for a certain goal.
...The reason that becomes important is because if you were to really think about the nature of what the left is saying, if you were to question it, feel safe questioning it, you would find that there’s no, “there,” there. So the left is always in danger.
...I would always ask why, I would always challenge the status quo -- and let’s just say I did not make friends of left wing leadership. There were no answers to my questions about...why a certain thing would happen and one of the transitions for me was when my mentor at NOW noted that...it was important that every now and then we rub salt into the wound. It would help us continue to be needed. And that’s when I realized that people had co-opted the issues that were important to me and were invested in maintaining problems in society so that the elite could maintain their power and money and control.
Usual superb job by John, highly recommended.
