Michele Bachmann: 'Gays Have Bullied The American People'
Welcome back (once again) to the bizarro world of Republican congresswoman and former Presidential candidate Michele Bachmann.
In a seeming attempt to remind us how detached she is from reality Bachmann has now attacked the role of gays in the defeat of SB 1062 in Arizona, the legislation that would have allowed individuals to deny service to gays based on religious protections.
Speaking about the bill's downfall to radio host Lars Larson during the Conservative Political Action Conference, Bachmann says:
"There's nothing about gays in there. But the gay community decided to make this their measure," Bachmann said. "I think the thing that is getting a little tiresome, the gay community, they have so bullied the American people, and they've so intimidated politicians. The politicians fear them, so that they think they get to dictate the agenda everywhere."
Yep. The gays are bullies. Glad we've cleared that up.
Here's a clip of the interview:
What do you make of Bachmann's remarks, Instincters?
