‘Tolerant’ left turns back on Bruce Jenner when he comes out – as a transgender REPUBLICAN

Bruce Jenner came out of the closet — as a Republican.

Former field and track Olympian Bruce Jenner came out of the closet Friday as a transgender woman — and, even more surprisingly for some, as a conservative Republican.

The left didn’t take the news well.

“Yes, for all intents and purposes, I’m a woman,” Jenner told Diane Sawyer on ABC News’ “20/20,” according to The Hill.

The acknowledgement was long-expected. No one, including Sawyer, it seemed, expected Jenner to say he also sided with the GOP.

“Are you a Republican?” Sawyer asked.

“Yeah,” Jenner replied. “Is that a bad thing?”

Sawyer suggested Jenner ask congressional Republican leaders to champion transgender rights.

“I would do that, in a heartbeat,” Jenner said. “Yeah, why not?”

One Twitter user wondered:

And it didn’t take long to find out. The left was outraged that the former Kardashian stepfather was a Republican. 

But one group — the Log Cabin Republicans — welcomed Jenner into its fold. Its National Executive Director Gregory T. Angelo issued this statement:

“As the nation’s only organization representing LGBT conservatives and straight allies, Log Cabin Republicans congratulates Bruce Jenner in the tremendous courage he demonstrated tonight, being true to himself both in terms of his personal identity as well as his political identity,” Gregory T. Angelo, the Log Cabin Republicans’ national executive director, said in a statement. “There is a home for you in Log Cabin Republicans — as there is for all lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, and transgender conservatives and straight allies.”

So much for liberal tolerance.

    Being Christian and conservative doesn’t insulate people like Jenner from having emotional disorders, which, regardless of hormone therapy and surgery, his feelings about his own gender represents. His genetics aren’t confused; run any test and it will yield he’s a man, whatever he wishes he sees when he looks in the mirror. I know a Christian woman who, due to childhood trauma, cannot recognize her own face in the mirror: It doesn’t make her somebody else, does it?

    Depression, confused sexual orientation, suicidal thoughts. God doesn’t give people any of these conditions. If he thinks God has chosen him to spread the good news of gender confusion and reassignment, then he really needs God to step in and repair his broken heart.

    Say whatever you feel about Bruce Jenner, but I would still have gone on alternative, new media as opposed to U.S. of A. mainstream media, thereby, forcing the growth of alternative, new media while replacing the U.S. of A. mainstream (even better…lamestream) media in the process and forcing it into oblivion. Call me naive or any worse name you want, but Bruce Jenner’s story would still get big even without going through U.S. of A. lamestream media. Also, the majority of those calling themselves liberals today are really tyrannical, anti-freedom, pro-enslavement big government statists while the true liberals are the classical liberals.

    How much sicker can this Country get?

    This is too too funny. It was alright with the Loony Libtards that Jenner wants to be a woman…but a Republican? oh my. Too too funny. Liberals never make sense.

    Jenner – this is not news and is no one’s business but your own. Media – IF you paid as much attention to the criminal actions of our administration – you would be doing what you are supposed to do with your profession. This article is about garbage – government backrd garbage.

    Google “Communist Goals – 1963.” Within the 45 mandates/goals you will find that homosexuality, pornography, abortions are to appear as NORMAL to all citizens. You will also find that the government will direct all news sources. This was officially entered into the Congressional Record in January 1963. IF you continue on spreading this garbage as a normal thing – you are merely following the horrid goals of the government.

    This whole Jenner thing is too weird. First of all he’s way too old to be turning into a women, who’s he gonna be Nana Jenner? His mannerisms and appearance is ridiculous. Also the ‘dude’ is gonna be still ‘dating’ women, that is totally nuts. He had the perfect rouse, a lesbian trapped in a mans body. Bruce’s problems are related to his need for being special, and public recognition. For republicans the worst thing that could happen is to have the Kardashians/Jenners as the poster child for republican tolerance. Proof of the end times.

    no sense of humor, seriously

    1. Who needs humor when we got Bruce Jenner?!

  8. Margie says:

    Nothing wrong with wanting to be a woman Republican. 🙂 I think we are pretty awesome!

    Are Twitter anti-Republicans the same as the “Tolerant Left”? Interview somebody with “Tolerant Left” bona fides please.

    I was super excited and proud when Bruce came out; it takes such courage and no doubt they will receive a lot of crap from it (well they already have) because people can be mean and not willing to try understand. For those of you who are though, here’s an article I wrote after watching the Diane Sawyer/Bruce Jenner interview. I talk a lot about trans* issues in general, the struggles trans* people face and just how awesome it is that Jenner has come out and is still alive and spreading their story with us today
