Michele Bachmann Says She Doesn't Hold Herself Above Gay People: VIDEO


Michele and Marcus Bachmann talk to People magazine about their positions on gay people, the HuffPost reports:

In the Oct. 31 issue of People, the couple defended themselves against accusations of harboring an anti-gay bias. "There's never been a bias," Marcus Bachmann said. "I'm no better than anyone else," Michele added.

People also talked to Michele Bachmann's gay stepsister, Helen LaFave, who Bachmann said she loved. LaFave said, "Yes, we are family and love each other, but she seems to have a disconnect. Her statements and actions related to gay rights are very hurtful, whether she understands that or not." Their once-close relationship reportedly strained over Bachmann's anti-gay activism.

In related news, here's a new "Born This Way" parody (screencap), featuring a pair of Bachmann impersonators.

  1. Bachmann equates gays with barbarians…Conan is confused.

    Marcus Bachmann, Michelle Bachmann’s Old Testament overlord, thinks gays are “barbarians [who] need to be educated. They need to be disciplined.” When asked for comment, Conan, an actual barbarian, was utterly confused: “Is Bachmann calling me a homosexual or dumb or both? Does he think all barbarians need an education or just the gay ones; or that all barbarians are gay but only some are uneducated? I’m tired of this offensive stereotype about barbarians. My slave masters provided me an extensive education of which my Spartan discipline is part and parcel. For example, I never chop anyone’s head off with my two-handed broadsword unless I have my battle axe handy to finish the job. That’s discipline, and don’t you forget it! Really, it’s quite an ignorant thing for a PhD to say.”

    But can we really blame Dr. Bachmann for thinking Conan the Barbarian is gay? I mean, Conan does run around oiled-up and naked except for a furry bikini. When I mentioned this to Conan he admitted that it was a fair point. “Still,” he said, “I don’t mind being called gay, but why ignorant and undisciplined? If I ever see him, I’m going to cut off his danglies.”

  2. There should be a 'just' in that statement, shouldn't there?

  3. Bachman, Turner Overdrive (BTO)"The Band" Are Canucks so we don't have to deal with "Anti-Gay" Candidates like this! Thank god though the parody of the video is hysterical....It will be a huge club hit up hear since we don't have people from a Gay Salem "Time Warp" trying to get elected.

  4. I'm not a North American but have to say (and every country has its crazy people) but really...whenever I'm feeling like a chuckle or need to cheer myself up I just google Bachmann, better there than here.
