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.

Being homophobic would be a compliment to my opinion compared to what they really are.

Just wind them up and they will say anything.

Using that word is homophobic. You just can't say it, and to be a public figure and say it publicly is even worse.

I'm sure all this complaining is making GLAAD and the homosexual mafia lose more credibility.
Bigotry thrives on the sensitivity of the victim. What happened to sticks and stones may break my bones but names can never hurt me?

Don't know for certain whether she's a homophobe but do know that is an ugly (not so little) thing. Chipmunk cheeks and multiple chins like Bristol. NAsty!

Anyone who isn't trying to prove a point or talking sh*t regarding politics could obviously see the context of her sentence was not homophobic but rather meant as a general insult.
People are too sensitive these days.

She is because it's what she was taught in her home - and it's shameful.

This is "gay" that people are making such a big deal out of this because she is a Palin... that's how teenagers talk. Sorry to burst your bubble.

#114- no one is forgetting how teenagers are. what we don't agree with is how people, like you, are defending her. Being 16 isn't an excuse for not having class, or not apologizing.

The word "f*ggot" is no different than the word "n*gger".

"Every kid out there, even the gay ones, are calling each other ***gots. Kids call each other ****** all the time too."

REALLY? REALLY? What kind of **** hole do you live in?

You might hear those kinds of comments in West Hollywood, or any number of other cities across the country. That doesn't make it okay to use that slur toward anyone, regardless of the cir***stances.

If Sarah Palin thinks she's such a good mother, then she'd admonish her children that it's not acceptable behavior. Trying to blame the victim of the slur is proof that she's full of B.S.
