Michele Bachmann, the esteemed Congresswoman from Minnesota, really wishes the gays would just stop bullying everyone and taking away their religious freedom:
Still reeling from the demise of Arizona’s “right-to-discriminate” bill, Michele Bachmann said last week that she is tired of gay people “bullying” her and the American people.
The Minnesota congresswoman told talk show host Lars Larson in an interview at CPAC that the gay community distorted the Arizona bill by making it about gay rights — even though the bill’s sponsor himself said it was about same-sex marriage.
“There’s nothing about gays in there, but the gay community decided to make this their measure,” Bachmann said. “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.”
It’s just getting a little tiresome, you see! Of course, if pressed, neither Michele Bachmann nor anyone else whining about the loss of their “religious freedom” can cite one example of persecution. She later added, “activist judges!,” which is wingnut code speak for “the judicial branch of American government, which we don’t like unless they’re ruling the way we want them to.”
Oh, Michele, we will sort of miss you when you leave Congress next year, if only for the loss of the regular humor factor.
