GOProud's Tammy Bruce: Willow Palin Isn't A Homophobe Because Gay Men In WeHo Call Each Other "Faggot" Too

CORRECTION: The below quote is from GOProud board member Tammy Bruce, not their chairman Chris Barron as I first posted. This is first time I've seen Bruce speak on their behalf, hence my error.

TMZ went to GOProud for their opinion on homophobic language. That in itself is hilarious. At least TMZ put them in their place.
GOProud 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."
Yeah. We're gonna destroy Sarah Palin via her daughter's Facebook page. If only.

UPDATE: Tammy Bruce has posted this additional statement to GOProud's site.

β€œThe angry misogynistic left and their accomplices in the main stream media have been unable to take down Governor Palin – no matter how hard they have tried. Unable to take her down directly they now have decided to try to hurt her by attacking the most important thing in her life – her family. Any person, gay or straight, who participates in this cheap political smear should be ashamed of themselves.”
I guess GOProud figured they better let their token female speak on this bit of "misogyny." Meanwhile their executive director Jimmy LaSalvia spoke on MSNBC today about outlawing abortion. No contradiction there, right?
