Michele Bachmann is Tired of the Gay Community 'Bullying' the American People: LISTEN


Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) gave an interview to talk show host Lars Larson at CPAC and expressed her anger about the failure of Arizona's anti-gay 'religious freedom' bill, saying that the gay community has been getting their way by intimidating politicians, Right Wing Watch reports.

Said Bachmann:

“There’s nothing about gays in there, but the gay community decided to make this their measure. And the thing that I think is getting a little tiresome is the gay community have so bullied the American people and they have so intimidated politicians that politicians fear them and they think they get to dictate the agenda everywhere. Well, not with the Constitution you don’t."

She added:

"If you want take away my religious liberties, you can advocate for that but you do it through the constitutional process and you don’t intimidate and no politician should give away my religious liberties or yours."

  1. Does her gay husband bully her?

  2. Nothing about the gays in there? The only reason why the bill was crafted was because the religious fanatical rights hates that gay marriage is blowing up across the country.

    She is beyond....

  5. One thing you can count on is Michelle Bachman's stupidity...

  6. as usual Ms. Bachman is a LIAR because the law in Arizona was targeted to the gay community......secondly, Ms. Bachman has no clue about what make something constitutional......she is a blow hearted IDIOT!!! She is a do nothing legislator that had only ONE piece of legislation passed and don't forget the poor CNN reporters chasing her down the halls of the capital when she wouldn't answer questions after she made some of her baseless, illogical and irrational statements

  7. This is the new theme that these rightwingers are using. She's mouthing the same bull as Scott Lively that somehow the minority is the bully, even though rightwing Christianists are trying their darndest still to make our lives hellish.

  9. As a spokesperson for the delusional, Representative Bachmann is excellent at her job. As a taxpaying Arizona citizen, my voice and freedom to advocate against discrimination IS part of the political process. Demanding equal justice for all, free of and from religion, it is my right and civic duty to stand up against the jackal-packs of self-professed spokespersons for a vengeful, tribalist, purity-testing and intolerant "god squad."

  10. Great. When she's in private life we'll be hearing from her all the danged time.

  11. She is technically correct, in that the law did not explicitly target LGBT individuals, however all other classes are protected classes under federal law, thus this is de facto targeting of LGBT Arizonans.

    Had Ms. Bachmann watched the Arizona debate surrounding this subject, the ONLY examples given were Christians who wanted outright permission to discriminate against LGBT Arizonans.

    But we're not looking to Michele Bachmann for intellectual rigor or authenticity, right?

  12. When Christians burned heretics at the stake, THAT was "bullying".

  13. How I love to hear a heretic, blasphemer and fornicator blathering on about her "religious liberties." Unless she is willing to give real Christians (i.e., those from the not bat-sh*t insane sects) to refuse her service to guard their "religious liberties," she's a hypocritical piece of sh*t.

  14. Well gosh, seems strange that the people promoting the bill kept using gay people as examples of people that Christians should be allowed to discriminate against. Over and over again. But then Bachmann must know something that I don't.

  15. She's correct that the bill never mentioned GLBT persons, BUT, as a woman, that fact should have been of grave concern to her. Some Evangelicals out there strongly believe that a woman's place is in the home, bare-foot, and pregnant and, therefore, could use their religious beliefs to discriminate against women...or divorced people or people of color, etc. in defiance of the AZ state Non-discrimination law. Then you run into the problem of which law would supersede the other? And who decides what exactly a deeply held religious belief is? Or even what constitutes a religion? Talk about a real slippery slope.

  16. she is just pissed because she is married to a closet queen

    Posted by: walter | Mar 10, 2014 7:47:00 PM

  17. For someone who says she knows about the constitution, then she should know that it already protects her freedom of religion. Therefore the Bill was a waste of the People's time an taxpayer dollars....unless it was meant for other reasons.....which is to legalize their bigotry.

    Put it this way, Bachmann, were that bill to pass you think it would be ok for businesses to discriminate against Christians based on ones religious beliefs?

    Posted by: Chrislam | Mar 10, 2014 7:52:57 PM

  18. No, Walter, there isn't a closet in existence deep enough or dark enough to conceal that queen. She's just mad because out and proud gays won't be subjugated by putrid harpies the way her wife Marcus is!

  19. That and she is an ignorant, power hungry liar!

  20. Tired old has-been resorts to infantile inflammatory rhetoric to steal a little limelight. Bring back Christine O'Donnell, she was funnier.

  21. Why can't homosexuals stop being gay, marry crazy b*tch3s, and have sexless marriages like God intended?

    Posted by: FuryOfFirestorm | Mar 10, 2014 8:11:56 PM

  22. My god......what a tiresome old barren harpie.

  23. @ JONNYNY2FLFL :

    Burning thousands, yes thousands at the steak was part of the human sacrifice cult that Christianity is.
    Equally the Papal Bull of 1552, "Ad Extirpendi" expressly permitted torture to be used.

    We are dealing with a cult which will try to get away with what it can..... they will cover up molestation of kids because they must protect each other.

    Slightly off point I will admit.....but the Christians are very dangerous.....especially if they get their hands on us.....anyone who endured ex-gay therapy knows that already.

  24. These lies are nothing compared to the lies she tells herself daily: that her husband is straight and that GOD wants her to be President.

  25. Yikes !
    That should be 'stake'.

    I must be hungry !
