Tammy Bruce On Michelle Obama

 tammy170 Who is Tammy Bruce? Supposedly, she’s an openly gay, feminist, progressive who self identifies and is apparently registered as a Democrat. Sounds fairly reasonable at first glance, until one digs deeper and actually reads some of the venomous filled anti-liberal rants she’s becoming well know for making. She has made it a point to highlight her self-identifying labels while at the same time bashing anything or anyone too far positioned on the left or whose ideology clashes directly with her in some small or significant manner. She’s a faux “left” or “center”-wing columnist and radio talk show pundit who voices conservative talking points on everything from the death penalty to race in America. She wrote a book a few years ago in which she talked of Rose Parks saying,


“To continue the falsehood that she was a victim of circumstance, responding in the moment to her environment, a woman who had no plan that day, suggests that we all must wait for some passive event in our lives only to see if we have the courage in the moment to do something.”


Umm, newsflash, they were ALL victims of circumstance even if they were apart of an organization that was aimed at improving the lives of people of color. Being forced to sit at the back of the bus because of the color of ones skin directly and indirectly makes one victim of unfair circumstances. She goes on to trash Parks later in the book by identifying her as “totalitarian”. She continues “Parks pushed us into the maze of Thought Police totalitarianism that we face today.”


Wow, really? In her second book she attacks Bill Cosby and labels him “the main threat to the black community.” Not only does she fare extremely well espousing Grand Old Party, Conservative, Repugnant talking points but she does so with great ease mixed with an unusual brand of loyalty. Even going so far as to bash the so-called “black elite” Cosby who himself bashed the lower economic classes black “trash” to an audience of black intellectuals. According to Bruce, the hatred stemming from this elite class “leads them to attempt to destroy the future of their own people and, indeed, everyone else.” Quite Frank for someone named Bruce. It seems as if she’s trying to convey the idea that only she can talk down to the “black folk” because she’s a self-proclaimed gay, feminist, lesbian, liberal and who better to denigrate a minority than a minority within a majority within a minority. What a crock of absolute funkdafied bullocks. She isn’t anymore liberal or feminist than a pair of Ann Coulter’s panties.


Her latest rant comes on the heels of a surprise appearance by Michelle Obama at a school where she talked to a group of girls about the isolation she felt at times while growing up in her neighborhood. She highlighted instances in her youth where she was teased for “talking white” and despite it all she still attained to do her best in school and receive excellent grades. The first lady went on to obtain a bachelor’s degree from Princeton and a law degree from Harvard. This is the same woman that Tammy Bruce called “trash” during a guest appearance on the Laura Ingram radio show.




It makes you wonder what Bruce thinks of all the teachers, police officers, EMT’s, medical assistants, customer service reps, armed forces, car salesmen, etc, whose standard of living fall far below the Obamas’.


The Huffington Post reports, “Discussing the first lady’s visit to a Washington D.C. classroom last week, Bruce incredulously recalled Obama’s story about wanting to get A’s in school and called out her use of a “weird, fake accent.” “That’s what he’s married to,” Bruce said. “…You know what we’ve got? We’ve got trash in the White House. Trash is a thing that is colorblind, it can cross all eco-socionomic…categories. You can work on Wall Street, or you can work at the Wal-Mart. Trash, are people who use other people to get things, who patronize others, who consider you bitter and clingy…”



Let’s break it down for a moment shall we? Tammy Bruce spends a large amount of time in print and radio pretending to be a Democrat with liberal views. What she’s actually doing is aiding those whose agenda is in direct opposition to any party that is not Republican and any party that does not represent “conservative values.” She gets paid to voice and write her opinions and in essence she is a political double agent, enjoying the privileges of self-labeling to suit her interests, but thinking nothing of bashing the very ideals that represent the labels she’s identifies with. She uses these labels to break into a facet of politics that is for the most part male dominated, and one sided either stretching all the way left or all the way right, rarely in the middle. Tammy Bruce has joined the ranks of the Laura Ingram’s and Ann Coulter’s just to name a eww, I mean a few. There is still hope for radical lesbians with their eye  Rachel Madow, no matter how much she leans to the left, she always keeps it real.


Ten Things Tammy


1| Being gay doesn’t preclude you from being incredulously stupid.


2| You get paid to patronize others, who consider you bitter and clingy to your labels, not your ideals, which I don’t think you are in tune with anymore anyway. Congrats on your new label, after all, you came up with it, trash.


3| You espouse viewpoints that are not in line with your own ideas of classical liberalism.


4| You have become part of the nuts and fruits that your “labels”, for the most part, reject.


5| You’re a media whore and conservatives love using you.


6|  You are so far right that even Log Cabin Republicans find you repugnant.


7| There is nothing classy or liberal about your agenda. Being a fraud is not a agenda.


8| I love that you’re a gun toting, pro-choice, self-proclaimed feminist lesbian. That, however, does not give you a free pass to be an ass.


9| Radical feminism vs. Racial Politics; NOT your forte.


10| I’m not a Democrat; I’m not a Republican, but I am a gun-toting, pro-choice, radical feminist, and openly gay lesbian. While there are things about you that can be considered admiral, such as your past work with NOW, most of your ideology pre-OJ Simpson trial, which is where your rants started to mimic those of one losing their sanity, the fact of the matter is that you have no real convictions upon which to stand which is why you are so far out there with your views you don’t even know what you believe any longer. 



You could be a role model, but instead, you are someone I pity because of the plethora of irresponsible and immoral garbage you often spew based on a singular news story or a singular event you’ve taken issue with. In conclusion, get real, and stop hating.


Oh, yeah, one more thing! I think we can all agree that Tammy Bruce needs a hug, no?

    Wow. Sometimes it really annoys me when my fella lesbians complain and criticize for the pure sake of complaining and criticizing. Considering that Bruce has always been White (gay or not) excludes her completely from having a valid understanding of what Michelle was referring to, regarding her cadence/dialect/accent or "switch-up" of it.

    To call her trash is out of line, just as much as the Elite Black community to call the non-elite black "trash" – but unfortunately, I kinda understand what they are trying to say.

    Bottom line is, we all, for the most part, adapt our speech to make more sense to our audience – even Obama himself. Have a listen to NPR podcast http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?stor… which is a pretty good discussion about this exact thing.

    I'm glad I stumbled onto your blog. This can really open up some serious dialog in whatever accents someone chooses to use. LOL

    This woman makes my blood pressure shoot up in 1.2 seconds. I had to read portions of her book for a political science class and i had a fit over 99.5% of everything she had to say. She's a joke and is well-advised to not even take herself too seriously.

    I think that as a journalist/reporter/person in the media spotlight, regardless of race, when you choose to speak on a topic or make fun of a cultural issue or issues you really need to have a logical and critical understanding of what's being discussed or critiqued. I have plenty of white friends who understand dialect, slang, The King's English and how a lot of black people are great chameleons when it comes to speech. If you don't understand, educate yourself. We all adapt our own speech at any given time, you nailed it with that one, Nina! Bruce has to know this. Tammy Bruce fits snugly into the very definition she's bestowed upon Obama and his wife, and the fact that she's a lesbian is what makes this story interesting to me, not that she's white.

    Knowledge, well said.

    So who doesn't she think of as Trash? Because apparently everyone's trash to her.
