Fox News host Tucker Carlson and his gay conservative guest agreed that the current wildfires in California happen partly because utility company PG&E is more bothered about employing LGBT people and people of color than about safety. Investigators believe that the fires began when a tree fell onto a power line operated by PG&E. But Carlson said: “PG&E strikes me as almost a metaphor for the destruction of the state. Here’s the utility which doesn’t really know anything about its own infrastructure but knows everything about the race of its employees. How did we get there?” Conservative, gay political commentator Dave Rubin responded that this “ridiculous ideology” touched every sphere of life. Rubin stumbled over a hypothetical situation for the Fox News host, saying: “Tucker, imagine if your house was on fire, would you care what the public utility or what the fire company, what contractor they brought it, what gender or sexuality or any of those things he or she was? I mean it’s just absolutely ridiculous.” Carlson, outraged, said: “Who would care? Who would care about something like that?” Rubin responded to accusations that his comments were “racist” and “homophobic” by writing on Twitter that he could not have been a homophobe or a racist. And he reminds that he has a husband, though it is not an issue.
