Sarah Palin forwarded a message to hundreds of thousands of her followers from conservative talk show host, Tammy Bruce (above).  The message, in the context of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” that Palin re-tweeted:

“But this hypocrisy is just truly too much. Enuf already–the more someone complains about the homos the more we should look under their bed,”

Is this a trial balloon, a big mistake, or something else?  Palin’s sometimes uses unconventional or high-tech methods of making announcements: Facebook or Twitter.   So far, the Facebook page is silent.

Bruce later followed up the Twitter posts with a hearty thanks:

“I think @SarahPalinUSA RT my tweet is her first comment on DADT, treatment of gays & attempts to marginalize us–thank you Governor,”  …and… “I know Gov Palin & this “anti-gay” meme has been a lie–plain & simple. She’s a decent woman & friend to the community,”

    1. Maybe the purpose of this post is to help us decide which candidates are the best for standing up for conservative values

  1. If Palin is “gay friendly,” then I’m glad this is coming out. Maybe there will be more clarification, but it’ll be tough for those who worship her to defend her if she’s for the repeal of DADT. I hope that God will expose the true beliefs of every candidate. I will not vote for a candidate who is soft on the radical homosexual agenda.

      1. Thanks for pointing that out, Shane. I’m not thrilled with her hedge word “now,” but at least in that statement she wasn’t supporting the repeal. However, like Huckabee, she did not speak against the repeal of DADT in the past month or so, much less try to do anything to keep it from passing (unlike McCain, who was a pleasant surprise). I’ll wait to see if she clarifies her tweet. She obviously needs to do so, since so much speculation is going on about its true intent.

      2. In February of this year Palin said that she thought Obama’s timing was wrong, regarding the repeal of DADT.

        And while the lame duck Congress was debating the issue last month, she was nowhere. She did not say one word while it was being repealed.

        Weeks later she “reTweets” pro-repeal comments from a known lesbian and DADT opponent.

      3. I didn’t know who she was either. But it was headlines like this that let me know who Tammy Bruce was:

      4. Here is what Tammy Bruce meant by the Tweet:

        Tammy Bruce wrote. “My tweet was also a condemnation of DADT as an attempt to continue to marginalize gays and lesbians in the military and beyond.”
