The clip Challenging Briggs to a public debate from Milk (2008) with Josh Brolin, Victor Garber. Powered by: Anyclip. any moment from any film.
Well, I see naked men walking around, naked women walking around, which doesn't bother me as far as my personal standards of nudity, but it's not proper. It wouldn't be allowed for any other parade in San Francisco, and it should not be allowed for the Gay Parade.
I have a right to be at this parade, Mr. Mayor.
I'm afraid it's not in the interest of your safety, or my public's safety to let you into these parade grounds.
I'm Harvey Milk. It's an honor to meet you, Mr. Briggs.
Yeah, no, I'm aware.
You know, it's sad, Mr. Milk, that you're afraid to fight this out in public.
Oh, that's not true.
I'd very much like to have a public debate with you.
I'm very interested in the details of your argument.
Oh, well, you know, you know the details.
I mean, just look at the votes across this nation. The public is with me.
They are today.
Which is why with my city's mayor and the San Francisco press as my witnesses,
I'd like to challenge you to a public debate.
Oh, I think that's a yes.
