Tammy Bruce: Identity politics was false evidence for the left until ‘mavericks’ like Caitlyn Jenner spoke out
The left has never missed a beat when it comes to playing the identity politics card, but ‘mavericks’ like LGBTQ lawyer Caitlyn Jenner threw them for a loop this week when she took on biological men competing in girls’ sports teams, Fox Nation host Tammy Bruce said Tuesday.
Bruce dedicated his latest episode of “Get Tammy Bruce” to the outrage on the left over Jenner’s opposition to allowing male-born transgender athletes to compete in female sports teams. Bruce, an outspoken conservative and member of the LGBTQ community herself, said she was offended by the left’s claim that “if you’re in the minority … you all think the same.” .

“It’s the ultimate racism, the ultimate sexism, the ultimate homophobia … is this stereotypical idea that if you have a piece of identity that looks like other people, that if you’re in the minority, you all think the same thing, you all behave the same, ”Bruce said.
“It was that kind of obscenity that drove Democrats through this and made them vulnerable to what some would say were extreme elements of racism and violence and expectations of conformity when it was the other way around.”
Jenner, a former Olympian who turned out to be transgender in 2015, floundered through the controversial issue over the weekend, telling TMZ it all comes down to “a matter of fairness.”
“This is why I oppose trans biological boys who participate in female sports at school,” she said. “This is just not fair and we need to protect girls’ sport in our schools.”
“Why this matters is because we are told that your identity … is what gives you the special power to understand certain issues,” Bruce told viewers.
“Whether you depend on identity, whether it’s race, sexuality or any other gender, it gives you a special understanding. That’s what the left says. It’s not politics. . It is that it is the special experience and it is the experience of a person that counts, that allows him to be that. “

Jenner’s stance exposes the left’s “false front”, Bruce said.
“… The lie, because if this is about who you are, Caitlyn Jenner should know the impact of transgender people on sports and other issues.”
