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.

#99 you are very wrong in your thinking if you think those words are not as bad, many young girls have committed suicide after being bullied by their peers using those exact words, I guess you defend them because you use them, that makes you a hypocrite so grow up and learn the facts before you start spewing your nonsense.

Melissa-none of those words are identified as slurs, or when used during assaults/bullying are identified as hate words and constitute a hate crime. That is a FACT

The entire thing is just shows that you can take a family out of the sticks but you can't take the sticks out of the family. This entire family is just trailer trash. If Mccain had not found her and dusted her off to look like a public official she would still be involved in her trooper gate scandal. Why does her daughter think they are so successful, they are not successful and have not done anything that anyone should admire them for unless the people admiring them are trailer trash as well. This entire family is a racist and that is why the tea party that Sarah is affiliated with is also racist, they get it from Sarah herself so why wouldn't her daughter be a bigot. Please, please someone put the general population out of their misery and stop treating these people like celebrities. Dancing with the stars, someone should really be ashamed of themselves.

Plus Melissa, you make the point of girls suicides.... did you forget that this whole anti-bullying campaign was brought to the forefront after a gay man killed himself after being bullied?? I don't disagree that those words can be hurtful, as all words can be, but they are not even in the same category. How many girls get charged with a hate crime for calling another girl a bitch while they are assaulting each other???? No answer?? Don't worry, I'll wait.

I guess all sorts of Uncle Toms run with the Tea Party. You've got the Black and Latino ones who associate with the Tea Party even though dozens of racist incidents have occurred in the past few months because of the Tea Party and now I guess the gay Uncle Toms want to play as well. I don't understand how gay people can be Republicans. The Republicans are the most Anti-Gay people on the planet. The Republicans are the main ones refusing to let Don't Ask Don't Tell die. These Uncle Tomas are really something else. They associate with the people who want them to live unequally, yet they essentially smile and say "Please massa, may I have another racial/sexual slur?"

Gay republicans are as self-hating as a person can be. Kissing the asses of a group who would rather they were dead.

Aren't we as a nation trying to teach kids, teenagers and whomever else, that it is not okay to be calling people gay, ***ot, the n word or anyother discrimnating words. We have kids killing themselves over this, is Alaska and or the Palins in the "dark" about what has been going on the last couple of months. Maybe Sarah Palin should stop looking for Russia and look towards America and open her eyes about what her kids are doing and saying to others that can cause so much pain to so many. Her daughter's are being bully's. Sarah Palin needs to step up and be a mom stop leaving your children at home while you go have your tea party meetings.

Everyday I hear people slur the name of the Lord and God. It offends me too. People will say whatever comes to their heads. Hopefully when people use the Lord's name in vain they do not hate him. Right?!

While I cannot stand that entire family, I doubt she's a homophobe. She's just an idiotic teenager. Someone who is in the public eye, especially where politics are concerned, does need to be more aware of what is politically correct/incorrect, though. The fact that she's using the type of language she is shows just how poor Sarah's parenting skills are. She shouldn't be given a break, no one else would be given one. Funny how SP blows a fuse, when someone uses the word "retarded", yet has no problem with people using the N word or gay slurs.
