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...and very stupid.

This man is floating a turd that should sink all on it's own.

If he thinks this woman is a proponent of Gay rights, or respects them in any way, he's nuts. He needs to research her time on the City Council of Wasilla, AK. She's a known homophobe. Nobody made this up, he just refuses to acknowledge it.

Jason W: So when Willow gets pregnant in 6 months. What will be your excuse for her then: She a child and did not know her legs could spread for guys?

By the same reasoning, it's okay for Willow to call this kid an N-word, right, because that word is used by black people amongst themselves? Epic reasoning fail by GOProud which shoudl GOEff themselves. Kudos to TMZ for mocking them. They represent a tiny fraction of gay people in this country.

Anything to defend the Palin bitch or her brood. Fact is, whenever anyone uses the word F****t or calls something "gay", GLAAD and all these other groups are all over them like a rash. Remember when the trailer for Vince Vaughn's new movie played and in it he called a car gay looking? (Or something to that effect.) He wasn't even referring to a person or group as Willow was. Do I think she's a homophobe? No. She's a 16-year old teenager and that's the way they talk. When I was that age we talked the same way, though of course times were different and it wasn't the hot-button, controversial issue it is now. I'm not excusing myself, but at that age you're ignorant and we didn't use it to bash a group or lifestyle. Willow is no different, but actually an argument could be made that she should know better than the average person, since her mother is in politics and sensitive to all races, religions, sexual orientations, etc.

It has EVERYTHING to do with Sarah, Jason W. Post #56 is a perfect explanation of why that is hypocritical. Don't be blinded by your Republican beliefs, the Palins are a joke. The fact that you even defend her says it all.

What if it had been Obama's much younger kids caught responding to some kid who dared to criticize their Father or Mother's show? Would you all say the same things in defense of them? Or would you say it is a reflection of their parents?

Others who have used he term have been curlicued by the media and general public. So what makes it ok for the Palin girls?

What Willow and Bristol did amounts to cyber bullying, other kids their age have been punished for it.

The Palin's are a bunch of RETARDS.

Now you can all have a fit because I used a term that offends them.

See the real problem isn't that she used the word. People use that word all the time and don't mean to be homophobic...The real problem is that if Gay rights people want it to stop (as they say they do) then they cannot brush the fact that Bristol said it under the rug just because they like her or her family. If it is wrong for one....then it is wrong for all no matter what political party they are in or who their parents are!

If GLAAD doesn't crawl all over this, then they have even less credibility than they usually do.

Calling us Gay Conservatives oxymoron's, spineless, or any other derogatory names is just as shameful as calling us ***gots.

If you're too simple minded to only see us as gays then shame on you for not bettering yourself.

**************
I said spineless because that person put his/her sexuality and self respect out the window because Palin is in the same political party. Me simple minded? Think before you type

all i cn say is wow. we do live in a world of double standards. Because it's the daughter of Sahra Palin, who call another person a (***got) it's ok with the gay right people. but if it was another person did it, they would of have a field day bashing them down. get real people, no one is trying to destroy Sahra Palin. She an her kids or followers will do it for her. all i'm saying. if the word is wrong to say from one person mouth, then it wrong to say from everyones mouth. wake up gay right people

So is the word retard used in everyday slur on the streets. Rules only apply to the Palins. Grow up Sarah Palin.
