|Lesbian Fox contributor faces anti-gay discrimination. Go figure.|
Where to begin.
Tammy Bruce is an oft-contributor to Fox News’ various propaganda shows. She claims to be a lesbian. She’s also an arch-conservative, who is highly critical of gays, and who penned a book called “The Gay Gestapo.”
Not surprisingly, she has routinely taken the anti-gay side of the various segments I’ve seen her on on Fox, including one in which she debated me on the O’Reilly Factor about my “DearMary.com” campaign, calling on Mary Cheney to stand up to her father and help stop the anti-gay constitutional amendment back in 2004 (naturally, Bruce defended Cheney against the evil gays).
And here’s another Fox segment in which Tammy Bruce defends that anti-gay beauty queen bimbo a few years ago who was in trouble for opposing marriage equality – Tammy outright called use “the gay gestapo” in that segment.
Bruce is the go-to-girl when Fox needs someone to provide cover on an anti-gay issue. I mean, if a lesbian is saying it, how can it be anti-gay?
So, what to do with the news that Bruce is now on the receiving end of Fox’s anti-gay bigotry that she herself has enabled all these years?
I won’t rejoice over Bruce being on the receiving end of anti-gay discrimination. I will however say that she made her bed. She got all cozy with an anti-gay activist organization, helped it thrive, and even helped it promote its anti-gay agenda and message, and now she’s surprised that the organization she helped build, in her own little way, is anti-gay.
Captain Renault: I’m shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!

Croupier: Your winnings, sir.
Your winnings, Tammy.
