Gay Tea Party Group: Palin's Not a Homophobe

11/17/2010 4:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

A gay, conservative, tea-party heavy group thinks it's stupid to label Sarah Palin's daughter or family "homophobes" ... just because Willow Palin called a guy a fa**ot on Facebook.

Willow Palin

GOProud.org just told TMZ, "The slur used here is one you could hear on the streets of West Hollywood or Chelsea every day of the week. Apparently, it's only a homophobic slur when it comes from the daughter of a conservative female leader."

We beg to differ. See here, here, here and here.

The group adds, "Make no mistake; this is all about destroying Sarah Palin by any means necessary."

As we first reported, 16-year-old Willow used the word to attack a male classmate on Facebook after the guy criticized Sarah Palin's reality show.

Go Proud. Party of One.

The Palin's don't need anyone's help making themselves look like fools. They're doing a great job all by themselves.

With all do respect to Sarah Palin and the tea party but Willow did use the word F --ot on FB.

I suggest Ms Palin, Willow and the party should owned it and give an apology.

Respectable people would do that without questioning.

This is a crock of bull!!! It is homophobic. Just because ppl say it often does not change that fact. Now folks are going to decide on homophobia based on the person making the slur. What idiots.

Such judgments! Wow. Unbelievable that ppl think a gay person can't be a conservative for their country for multiple other reasons to be conservative (illegal immigration, national defense, taxes, jobs in America) DUH!

Guess what - the world takes ALL KINDS! Including gay conservatives... deal with it & I'm glad people are coming to her defense. DWTS is a fun entertaining show. 1/2 the people on ther, nobody has ever heard of. It is in the 10th season, this is nothing new. Excellent dancers have been voted off because they have no votes. Bristol has votes & she is not her mother - so suck it haters!

I love "the gays" but when one of their mouthy idiot counterparts yelled at me "you breeder".. I yelled back "You ugly ***got". Fair is fair. Both of us wrong? You bet - but I'm not a hater, just THAT GUY deserved what he got. I was offended at what he called me. He can deal with being offended too... we're human.. we're naturally selfish.. hahaha
GO BRISTOL!!! GO WILLOW!!! GO SARAH!!!

Shows how small minded you are.
Don't make assumptions about how a gay/lesbian person thinks. Makes you sound like a homophobic bigot.

She is not a homophobe. She just has the vocabulary of one.

I wonder if she thinks it would be ok to call her nephew a retard. I hear the word all the time on tv, or how about calling all the Mexicans wetbacks another word you hear all the time in California.

Harvey, you're only making a big deal of this story because you're gay.

Put your lifestyle aside and put REAL stories on TMZ, not this drivel.
