Michele Bachmann Claims Gay People Have ‘Bullied The American People’

By Mollie Reilly | The Huffington Post

Michele-Bachmann-006Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) is still not pleased with Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer’s (R) decision to veto SB 1062 late last month. In an interview with conservative radio host Lars Larson during last week’s Conservative Political Action Conference, Bachmann said the downfall of the bill, which would have allowed businesses to refuse service to gay individuals on religious grounds, illustrated how LGBT activists have “bullied” voters and politicians.

“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.”

Bachmann said, however, that liberals likely wouldn’t attempt to change the U.S. Constitution to “take away” religious rights because “activist judges” and President Barack Obama will simply ignore the document instead.

“He’s a lawless president who’s violating the Constitution with every executive order,” Bachmann said of Obama.

Listen to the clip:

Bachmann had voiced her opposition to Brewer’s veto in an interview with ABC News & Yahoo’s “Fine Print” earlier this month.

“I was sorry that she made the decision, and it’s because I believe that tolerance is a two-way street and we need to respect everyone’s rights, including the rights of people who have sincerely held religious beliefs,” Bachmann said. “Right now, there’s a terrible intolerance afoot in the United States, and it’s against people who hold sincerely held religious beliefs.”

The congresswoman, who is set to retire after this congressional session, has previously dismissed the issue of school bullies targeting gays.

“That’s not a federal issue,” Bachmann said in 2011.

    I agree with Michelle Bachmann. I do believe that not onlyhas the gay community bullied the politicians but also mainstream societyand the Supreme Court but more importantly the Christian leadership, pastors, preachers, evangelist and the layman. I was shown several years ago what this day would look like.and the effects of this spirit would have across the United States. I am surprised at the apathy within the Christian community on this issue. I don’t know of many groups that are making an impact at the national level to lay this move of satin to rest. Mrs. Bachmann has hit the hammer on the nail, “bullied.”
    Political correctness and tolerance seem to be the theme of the day or God will deal with it. What appalls me, is that it effects the living today, especially us Christians and it can have a profound threat tomorrow. Christianity is being attacked daily in the blogosphere, in the media, in the local community and the boldness of this spirit has grown.
    God sent His word to effect change. He says He watches over it to perform it in us. Time that we put His word into action and rebuke this spirit and take back the land before we are looked at with more than scorn.

    I don’t care for her involvement in politicians since the so called parties do nothing for their faithful voters. However, she is telling the truth. You can’t say anything without the LGBT making some attempt to ruin your life.

    I concur with Bachmann and i’ve been saying this for months!! The LGBT Agenda was sphere headed by the anit-bully movement and now they have become the biggest bullies on the block!!! You can’t speak out against them (or the behavior rather) in schools, in the public, or if you’re in the media or entertainment!
