David Brock, CEO of Media Matters of America and a former closeted gay Republican, appeared on MSNBC’s “Hardball” Wednesday night to discuss Obama’s signing the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” into law.

Deeming the ban on gays in the military a “phony wedge culture war issue,” Brock went on to say that right-wing leaders “exploit gay people and they exploit the fear of gay people to gun up their base. That’s what they do. It’s a totally cynical thing. Half of them don’t even believe it. I know, I was in the right wing. So that’s what’s going on here.”

When Matthews asked Brock how, as a gay man, he put up with the rampant homophobia within his party, Brock responded, “Self-loathing. I wasn’t confident enough myself…to come out.”
