Bachmann Wields Her Terrible Swift Sword
Well Michele Bachmann (R-MN) won’t be afflicting the body politic in any official capacity much longer but the woman’s a trouper and, despite being a tad punch-drunk, she’s still in there flailing away.
Holding court at last week’s CPAC, La Bachmann shared, in a radio interview, her still raw anguish over Governor Jan Brewer’s decision to veto Arizona’s “right to discriminate” law.
Rep. Bachmann is especially aggrieved over the bullying that she and The American People are suffering at the hands of teh gayz:
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 that gay people and “activist judges” are trying to take away her freedom: “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.”
Now the jury is still out on how many LGBT people actually live in this country, for obvious reasons. Despite their bullying nature, a lot of LGBT people don’t advertise their sexual preferences. LGBT folks have, during my lifetime, at least, pegged their unofficial number at about 10% of the population. On the other hand, people who prefer to minimize gay rights claims often count the LGBT community at 1%-3% of the general population. Pollsters usually get to 3-5% based on self-identification.
Regardless of which number one ascribes to, we must admit that it is a pretty remarkable feat for 1%, or 10% for that matter, of the population to bully the other 90-some percent into a quivering social and political subservience.
In the interest of “fair and balanced” reporting, though, I decided to look into La Bachmann’s bullying allegation.
Here’s what I found . . .
. . . an early instance of a group of gays bullying the NYPD in front of the Stonewall night club in 1969 . . . .
The people below were “bullying” others by being “out” and acting gay and were bashed by their victims . . .
And these kids were such gay bullies they were killed for being gay . . .
They won’t be bullying anyone. They’re dead.
And I guess these are just examples of hometown justice striking back at the gay bullies in their midst . . .
Of course there’s an answer, on the Right, about why gaybashing happens—it doesn’t. Last year, one troubled soul in New Jersey tried to get some love for being stiffed on a tip while being gay which swept through B-list conservative and TEA Party news as proof that LGBT hate crimes are “self-inflicted” bids for attention.
On the other hand, amid all of that documentation of “gay bullying,” this interesting item bobbed to the top this morning . . . it’s the story of a children’s services organization in Kentucky that is trying to survive a massive budget shortfall after some caring Christians in that state decided to withhold $7 million dollars in donations to punish Sunrise Children’s Services for proposing to end its policy of discrimination against LGBT employees.
That policy proposal was made by one Bill Smithwick who was the director of Sunrise Services, at the time, and feared losing federal funds if the policy was not changed to conform with federal law.
Smithwick was forced to resign, the policy was not changed and the Kentucky Baptist Convention has gotten all Christian again and advised its churches that it’s safe to donate to Sunrise Services again.
Bully this! Ms. Bachmann and all of the rest of the hypocritical CINOs (Christian in Name Only) that infest this once great nation.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I think I’ll take my granddaughter and a van-full of her little preschool friends to see Frozen! In 3-D! That should make a lasting impression.
P.S. Bite me.
