Michelle Bachman's lesbian sister

Michelle Bachman's lesbian sister
June 16, 2011 03:38AM
Who knew? I just found out on MSNBC. First off, Ms. Bachman pretended as though she was raised by a "single mother" during the debates the other day, but the truth is her divorced mother got remarried "shortly" after divorcing her first husband. Bachman also made out like she was one her own as a kid. Also a distortion - she had NINE (step) brothers and sisters - one of who was a lesbian. Okay - so it's bad enough that Bachman is one of the leaders of the anti-gay movement when her sister is gay, but get this... Her family was upset about her position on gay folks, so they took her to some "get to know the gay folks" event to basically show her... "Hey - dumbass - gay folks are just like everyone else." Of course it didn't work - she's still working against the evil gay disease. But to top that off (believe it or not - you can top that if you're Michelle Bachman) - when it became public knowledge that her sister was gay Bachman said she "polled her family"(!!!) and "most" of them agree with her position on the gay thing. Get that? She polled her family to see if they hated her sister as much as she does (Bachman believes "gay" is caused by Satan - that's no exaggeration) and - according to her - "most" of them agree.

"Hello mom? How you doin' today? Oh I'm fine - just busy representing Minnesota down here in DC. Listen... you got a moment there? I'm taking a poll... do you think Sis is the spawn of Satan? You do? Great - I'll put you down as a YES vote. Thanks so much - well, I'm going to have to let you go now... I'm running for president!"

Doesn't Newt have a lesbian sister too? I don't think he's been as virulently anti-gay as Bachman, but he's no friend to gay Americans either.

So you are saying she has a personal phobia about gays?

Curt,

Define anti-gay.

Well, denying them the same civil rights as other citizens of the United States is pretty anti-gay.

Does she do that?

Certainly anyone who actively promotes denying marriage equality for gays and lesbians does, yes.

Not according to the populace of the State of California.

She's an evangelical, pb. Those nutbars believe being gay is a personal choice and a sin. She is actively working against gay rights on all levels.

I don't think that your characterization is correct on either point. Most evangelicals I know personally accept the fact that at least some people who engage in same sex sex have a natural inclination for same sex sex. And, the evangelicals I know don't believe that BEING gay is a sin. They almost all believe that practicing gay sex is a sin.

All levels? What does that mean?

I believe that pb could grasp the concept of anti-gay if he'd replace the word "gay" and its synonyms with the word "Christian". For example a if Bachman or any politician advocated that Christians should not be able to marry each other, or that it was OK to deny Christians the right to serve in the military or be teachers., he'd understand it.

Then she's doesn't oppose gay rights on all levels.

Outstanding, Curt. thumbs up

You either support equal rights or you don't. There is no in-between with equality.

What right does she oppose for gays?

Pb has admitted to cheating on his wife multiple times. I don't think his opinion about anything counts for much when it comes to the 'sanctity of marriage' as is his basis for denying gays the right to marry someone of the same sex.

What's the correlation, there, sam?

I guess, pb, that you don't know much of anything about Bachman if you don't even know she speaks out against same-sex marriage.

Gay rights just aren't important to Bachman. What rights ARE important to Bachman? How about the...

"Light Bulb Freedom of Choice Act"

Gay rights just aren't important to Bachman. - Indy!

Oh, I disagree. Gay rights are very important to Bachmann; she's working very hard to kill them.

"Lots of politicians talk about a sinister homosexual agenda. Bachmann, who has made opposition to gay rights a cornerstone of her career, seems genuinely to believe in one. Her conviction trumps even her once close relationship with her lesbian stepsister. "What an amazing imagination," marvels Arnold. "Her ideology is so powerful that she can construct a reality just on a moment's notice.""

Now, the most hypocritical candidate who seems to contradict herself the most, so far, in my opinion is Michele Bachmann; so there's a good chance she will move up in the polls very rapidly. Last night, for one, we heard her say that as president she would support changing the Constitution to define marriage as only between a man and a woman, but she wouldn't go into states like New Hampshire and make them change their laws regrading same sex marriage. So, we know she wants to amend the constitution to no longer leave it up to the states which is how the issue is handled right now. But she claims she also wants to leave it up to states like New Hampshire. She makes a great deal of sense. She believes in the 10th amendment, but she doesn't.


dailykos

I love that one. She would seek to change the constitution to mandate that marriage could only be between one woman and one man... but she would support states not abiding by the constitution.

The woman is a complete moron.

Which is why she's one of the GOP frontrunners.
