Tammy Bruce Resigns GoProud
Redstate ^ | 2/12/11 | Ben Howe

Posted on 02/14/2011 1:33:52 AM PST by pissant

Tammy Bruce, columnist, radio host & conservative gay activist, announced on her website today that she will resign her position as advisory board member to GoProud.

I want to let you know that after being a supporter and serving as Chair of the Advisory Board since May of 2010, I gave Chris Barron and Jimmy LaSalvia my resignation Saturday night. If you search GOProud here at the blog you’ll see the affection with which I’ve held both Chris and Jimmy, and I wish them well.

I spoke with Tammy at the CPAC convention and when asked for comment on the reason for her departure she had no comment except to reiterate her position from the website that she,”looks forward to working with conservatives across the spectrum on issues that matter to all of us.”

I wouldn’t call her that. She’s just a semi-conservative lesbian with a thing for Palin.

I see no evidence that Tammy Bruce has a thing for Sarah Palin which is what you are insinuating. Like out of a porno movie.

Was her departure from GOProud’s advisory board pre-planned, with Andrew Breitbart filling her position?

Really! Breitbart is one of the good guys to me. Free flowing information is good, at least in my estimation.

Tammy Bruce bailed on GOProud because they’re not truly conservative, period. All the crud they’re dragging, what they truly support, is radioactive to conservatives.

They’re using CPAC in an effort to split conservatives. Tammy isn’t having any of it. She should get credit for that, big guy!

Will she be working on Palin's campaign?

I believe she will one way or another, but she left GOPac because they made it clear that they were just as bad as those who protested them said they would be. She didn't say it publicly, but they completely embarrassed folks who are conservative who just happen to be gay.

It was a fortunate bit of overreach for the conservative movement in an opportune time.

Gay conservatives will have to choose, accept that we cannot live with the "family" being redefined so that eventually all of the protections afforded to families must be stripped, which is the ultimate end of the path that begins with "gay" marriage. Gay conservatives also have to live with some restriction of gay activity in the military because open acceptance of gay activity under the current conditions will corrupt the military and its mission, not that the issue of women in the military isn't as big or bigger as a problem for similar reasons. This is the "real" elephant in the room. The amount of abuse of women in the service is unbelievable, and the whole system needs deep rethinking.

We might believe in equality, but we cannot repeal human nature. People who fly in the face of the plain facts of human nature need to proceed with caution and humility. It isn't impossible to win in these circumstances, just difficult. People who start with a deep denial of the reality of humanity though do not have a chance of success, rather beginning that path is a prelude to misery for all.

Tammy Bruce is a realist on both of these scores. She still claims to be gay, but she understands that human liberty is at stake at the moment and the folks espousing "gay" causes are just pushing "stalking horses" or ideas that look good on paper but are intended to drive corruption and divide those who would support liberty.

Pissant, many folks have been telling you that you have become no better than a troll. And, I am becoming inclined to agree after defending you in a number of forums.

You need to do some soul searching, or you could find yourself permanently banned. You have and do provide good conversation starters but you have become a comical character in your own way and have become disruptive.

Nevertheless, Sarah Palin picked up some very effective intellects and organizers in the last election cycle in the form of the "PUMA" bunch and in this were some very outspoken "gay" people. Tammy Bruce, the HillBuzz crew, and others. Add to this, that Palin tends to a Libertarian stance on "gay" rights which essentially equals human rights of any human, but not any special privileges. This stance bugs you.

She doesn't preach hate for gays. There is a wide gulf between tolerance and acceptance. Gay activists would argue that this is a narrow gap and "MUST" be bridged if you cross the first line. But, in fact, this is not so. Tolerance is the respect of the human dignity of those who are lost but have hope of being saved ultimately. It is the result of hate the sin but love the sinner. But, it is an unstable state, one that demands change, because tolerance of the human because of their inherent dignity cannot bend to toleration of the act of the sin or it encouragement. But, this is a painful place for those who are tolerated. If they are to continue with their behavior they must argue for acceptance, yet it is our obligation to say no to this. Toleration that is the garden of salvation is a place where weeds must be identified and removed. Yet it is a place where you get your hands dirty.

Ultimately, you don't trust Sarah Palin to live her faith or witness its application, and this in the face of her doing that pretty much all of the time. If you want to see her in action, watch that "Reality Show" when she had Kate Gosselin along. The people making the show had fun at Kate's expense, but watch Sarah Palin and her family and how they deal with this woman and her kids. The kids are treated with grace, the woman is allowed her own space and the dignity of making even stupid decisions for her own kids.

Another telling highlight of that same series was the hunt. Most producers and frankly every politician I can think of would have cut the whole string of missed shots, but they didn't. You have to ask yourself why.

You are welcome to hate Sarah Palin or distrust her or what ever, but you need to bring a better game.

To add to what you wrote, tolerance also requires disagreement with that which is tolerated. Where agreement exists the idea of “tolerance” doesn’t apply. So tolerance and acceptance are not only not the same, they seem to me to be opposites.

I’m a Palin supporter, but you have a point with this.

Palin RT the Tammy Bruce thing a few weeks back. Then she “boycotts” CPAC because of GOProud. Then it turns out that Tammy Bruce is in GOProud.

First she Retweets Tammy Bruce then she boycotts CPAC because of Tammy Bruces organization.

Not consistent.

Amen FRiend—the PDS suffering Leftists and RINOS have so little to go on in the way of real Palin shortcomings they desperately pounce on any little piece of gossip,rumor or spin the GOP RINO elite leadership or the anti-American Left throws out there.

What has she actually DONE that has hurt the conservative cause? One hears only lies or silence.
What has she done to help? Geez—where to BEGIN!!!

I knew a guy who fathered two kids, then when they were adolescent he decided he was a woman-in-a-man's-body, left his wife, and lived as a woman with another man who decided to live as a woman. VERY strange guy. I only knew him as "father of my daughter's friend".

My wife's friend left her husband, also a father, because she caught him dealing with transvestite prostitutes.

How is it that all of these Republicans are surrounded by gays? Why is it that we’re hearing about unacceptable gay republicans and acceptable gay republicans?

A fight in the Republican Gay Community it seems.

I did not know there was a Republicans Gay Community.

I don’t really think there should be one.

I don’t really think there should be different gay groups in the Republican Party.

And I’m not happy to hear that Sarah Palin is involved in some sort of GOP Gay Fight. It’s really bad. The idea that we’re sorta having to think about which type of Gay Republican is best is not a good one. I like Gay Democrats, because they function well as targets. We don’t really want to have gay people standing next to you when your attacking gays. It just would be easier not to do that. I would like to be able to use wedge issues comfortably. And Gay is a wedge issue, it’s a vote getter. We want to be able to not have to worry about the feelings of gay staffers. And they all want gay marriage if they say they do or not. You have to assume that, anyway.

Romney, having brought Gay Marriage to Massachusetts, is the hero to the gays. He’s the one affiliated most strongly with GOProud. Romney brought Gay Marriage in to Massachusetts because that makes it easier to bring in Polygamy, which is what Romney wants. Gay Marriage is worse than Polygamy.

I think Tammy is gay but not pro-gay marriage, which go-ashamed is.

Tammy is one of the best “talkers” out there. I like her because she is a true “convert” from liberal-land, was one of their organizers (as once pres of NOW). She is very pro-life.

She really knows how they think and exactly what they’re up to.

Also, she just might get a call to work on Sarah’s campaign.

Correct... homosexuality and conservative principles are mutually exclusive. Homosexuality is an abhorrent evil at complete war with God’s created order. One cannot be a Conservative and espouse any portion of the homosexual agenda.

You have to assume that, anyway.

I know it would be nice if the world was perfect but it isn't. There is a "gay" fight going on all around you and wishing it was gone is the surest way to let the forces of evil win. Frankly, these "gay" type people are rich, creative and influential in ways that far outsize their membership in the population. They are the foot soldiers of so many of the attacks made on conservatives and so you feel justified in seeing them as the enemy. Yet, it comes down to the fact that each and every one of these people is a person too. They think, they act and work for one thing or another. Right now, the American left has crawled into bed with the Radical Muslim camp and the equally radical Marxist camp and "gay" folks all of the sudden are discovering the "Freedom" they already have but may lose soon. In this, they see a bit of the light. You can choose to slap them away from the light, but as it is said, we do not put stumbling blocks in front of the blind. This is an equal evil.

Ultimately, the whole "gay" identity is a lie, but you cannot help people to freedom, faith and hope if you see them as less than human at the start.

Nevertheless, it is easy to get caught up in seeing "gay" rights as being "human" rights and this is a perversion. It is for this moment politically dynamite to reject the "gay" lifestyle and gay marriage and such, but ultimately, this is a core principle of our society so it cannot ultimately prevail if we are to maintain our society.

Still, we live in a world of the real and you can live with people who you don't agree with or even approve of by learning to respect folks and what is your business and what is theirs.

For this moment, some "gay" folks are waking up to the fact that Western Civilization is under assault and all of the sudden, this is more important to them. It is important that we see their help in this regard as positive. We unfortunately must be a bit of a bore and refuse any quid-pro-quo on the issues of acceptance of the gay lifestyle as a "price" for this support. Those that get it will find it is important enough to just put their shoulder to our common challenge and attempt to settle for a position where people have privacy, and the right to designate who are the significant people in their lives.

The folks who hate Sarah Palin will attempt to use this to divide the conservatives. You will have to decide if you are Saul Alynski's "she dog" and if you can be played this way.

Tammy Bruce bailed on GOProud because they’re not truly conservative, period.

There is no indication in anything she said that she is "bailing out" on them. She is moving on to other pressing things; she mentions working for the Tea Party, and speculation is that she wants to help get Sarah Palin elected, but she didn't say that in her announcement.

There is nothing in the record to suggest Tammy doesn't still support GoProud -- she mentioned her support prominently in the article quote in this thread.

Definitely is gay, has directly stated she is not for gay marraige; the gay activists claim that GoProud has changed their stance on gay marriage and no longer support it, because of the influence of gay-friendly conservatives like Ann Coulter.
