Journalist, author, and political commentator Tammy Bruce has a unique background for someone who is well known nationally as “a true conservative.” For one thing, she is unabashedly gay. And in her early years, Bruce decidedly considered herself a Democrat. Her background gives her a particularly perceptive understanding of the machinations of the Left.
When she joined AMAC as a contributing columnist, she explained that while AMAC is considered to be the conservative alternative to AARP, she said her affiliation with the Association of Mature American Citizens “is not about retirement, this is about the future for all of us regardless of our age.”
Bruce, a Fox News contributor, recently sat for an interview with AMAC’s CEO Rebecca Weber for Weber’s Better for America podcast. She offered her take on a variety of current topics such as the Disinformation Governance Board that the Democrat regime in Washington recently created. She chimed in on Critical Race Theory, the Constitution, and the Supreme Court. And, of course, she voiced her opinion regarding the leaked document that predicts the overthrow of the Supreme Court’s Roe vs. Wade abortion rights decision.
The White House insists that the Disinformation Governance Board [DGB] is nonpartisan and apolitical. Although the Biden administration says the DGB was created to check and expose foreign-born anti-American propaganda, its true purpose might be to spread falsehoods here at home. It could have been established under the oversight of the CIA or some other agency that deals with threats from abroad, physical and otherwise. Instead, Bruce noted it was made part of the Department of Homeland Security, “an agency that has been using rhetoric for quite some time now indicating that they view Americans as the threat to America,” she said.
As for the Leftist Critical Race Theory [CRT], Bruce points out that it is “simply Marxism, rebranded. We see it, of course, in academia. We see [it] moving through the government and government programs. It is about silencing voices that would clarify the reality of what’s going on. Marxists have always, in other countries, murdered the opposition. You can’t get away with that here. But the equivalent would be to simply expel them from the public sphere. Political correctness was the start of this. And now we’re moving into…an end game. And that’s where America, I think, comes in. It’s where organizing the right comes in and where conversations like ours come in, as well.”
Bruce describes the Constitution as “a template, a divine template…delivered to us by our Founding Fathers…[and] it makes us different and makes this country the greatest on earth.” It’s also a threat to Leftist elements of society, and that’s why the Left has a focus on packing the Supreme Court, she added.
Finally, with regard to the likelihood that the Court will overturn its 50-year-old Roe vs. Wade abortion decision, she said she believes “they will overturn it because even the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg, [who was] obviously an icon of the Left, a woman who was a feminist and worked on these issues, was very blunt in the weakness of the Roe decision technically. And that’s what we’re dealing with here.”
