David Brock and Richard Socarides of Equality Matters appeared on Hardball last night to discuss opposition to lgbt equality.

Said Brock: "I was in the right wing then and I knew what they were doing then and I know what they're doing now. It's a phony wedge, culture war issue for the right wing. For their base. They exploit gay people and they exploit the fear of gay people to gin up their base. That's what they do…It's a totally cynical thing. I know, I was in the right wing, so that's what's going on here."

Brock, a former Republican, also said it was "self-loathing" that contributed to his political views at the time.
