Palin approvingly quotes lesbian “conservative” Tammy Bruce’s threat to “look under the bed” of people who oppose the homosexualization of the military
at all surprised that Sarah Palin, along with so many other “conservatives,” seems to be supporting the repeal of the prohibition on homosexuals in the military. I am
surprised that she seems to approve of lesbian “conservative” Tammy Bruce’s standard homo-fascist threat to target the private sexual lives of people who oppose the homosexual agenda.
At the same time, when people are communicating with each other via this sub-civilization thing called “twitter,” or “tweeter,” can we expect them to have any intelligent awareness of what they are doing? Maybe Palin was just posting stuff without thought. We’ll find out soon enough, since this story will finally force her to say something about the homosexuality in the military issue.
The story comes from ABC News blogs:
Sarah Palin Re-Tweets in Support of Gays
January 04, 2011 9:52 AM
ABC News’ Devin Dwyer reports: Sarah Palin has been conspicuously quiet in the debate over “don’t ask don’t tell” and on a repeal of the policy President Obama signed into law before the holidays. By most accounts, she has never actually weighed in at all.
But Monday night the former Alaska governor re-tweeted a post from conservative talk show host and blogger Tammy Bruce, who is lesbian, appearing to indirectly cast support for gays and an end to the ban on openly gay members of the U.S. military.
Bruce had been commenting on the controversy surrounding a U.S. Navy commander and a raunchy video when she turned to the issue of gays in the military.
“But this hypocrisy is just truly too much. Enuf already—the more someone complains about the homos the more we should look under their bed,” Bruce tweeted, suggesting that virulent opposition to gays may reflect the individual has something to hide.
Soon after, Palin re-tweeted the message to her following of more than 350,000 followers.
“I think @SarahPalinUSA RT my tweet is her first comment on DADT, treatment of gays & attempts to marginalize us—thank you Governor,” Bruce responded on Twitter.
“I know Gov Palin & this “anti-gay” meme has been a lie—plain & simple. She’s a decent woman & friend to the community,” Bruce said later.
A Palin spokesman has not yet responded to ABC News’ request for comment on the Twitter exchange.
Palin’s son, Track, is an active duty member of the U.S. Army. Her former presidential running mate, Sen. John McCain, led the opposition to legislative repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell.”
For the record, here is the Tammy Bruce “tweet” as “retweeted” by Palin at http://twitter.com/sarahpalinusa:
