Homo-Maniacal: Explaining the Behavior of the Angry Political Left (Part 1)
BarbWire’s senior editor Jeff Allen used the phrase “homo-maniacal” a few days ago and it needs to catch on – it captures nicely the behavior of so many on the radical social issues left.
Here are two of Merriam-Webster’s definitions for ‘maniacal’:
Definition of MANIACAL
: affected with or suggestive of madness
Medical Definition of MANIACAL
: affected with or exhibiting insanity
Madness? Insanity? It’s terrible that we would use those words, right? To be honest, the person who inspired me to think in these terms was Tammy Bruce. In her book, The Death of Right and Wrong, she writes (emphasis added):
For people whose entire identity and reason to live is based in their sexuality, what do they need to do in order to fit comfortably into our society? They must work to sexualize every part of society…
Just that idea is crazy — but here’s more from Bruce, (again emphasis added):
From where does this madness spring? Why this compulsion to change our society’s culture to mirror the Left Elite’s own worldview? This pattern of the Left Elite’s projecting their issues onto society isn’t as odd as you may think.
It makes perfect sense, according to the most respected psychoanalysts of our age. Childhood trauma, stress disorders, and the resulting malignant narcissism all play a part in the Left’s victim mentality and in their effort, mostly subconscious, to shape our world to mirror their own damaged psyches.
Ouch. Oh, and in case you didn’t know, here’s Tammy Bruce’s bio line from a recent op ed at the Washington Times: Tammy Bruce is a radio talk-show host, New York Times best-selling author and Fox News political contributor.
Wait, there’s more. Here is the first sentence of Bruce’s Washington Times op ed on February 28, 2014:
As a gay conservative woman, I supported Arizona’s religious freedom bill, which was just vetoed this week by Gov. Jan Brewer.
What? She supports religious liberty? Is she nuts?
Barbwire excerpted that article and for good reason. In it, Tammy Bruce wrote that there is —
— an effort to condition the public into automatically equating faith with bigotry…lawsuits against small business [are] resting on the notion that acting on genuinely held faith is bigotry per se.
Under these rules, freedom of conscience is squashed under the JACKBOOT of liberals, all in the Orwellian name of ‘equality and fairness.’
Bruce didn’t stop there:
Here we are dealing with not just forcing someone to do something for you, but forcing them in the process to violate a sacrament of their faith as well. If we are able to coerce someone, via the threat of lawsuit and personal destruction, to provide a service, how is that not slavery? If we insist that you must violate your faith specifically in that slavish action, how is that not abject tyranny?
It has been disgusting to watch supposed gay ‘leadership’ drag young gays and lesbians through an indoctrination that insists that in order to have equality, you must force other people to do your will, make them betray who they are, and punish them if they offend you.
Horribly, the gay civil rights movement has morphed into a Gay Gestapo. Its ranks will now do the punishing of those who dare to be different or dissent from the approved leftist dogma.
Gay Gestapo? What has gotten into that woman? Talk about intolerance and hate.

That’s enough for today — let’s continue tomorrow with more of what Tammy Bruce has said about her fellow “gays.” You can bet they’re not happy about it.
