Bachmann: Gay Community ‘Bullied’ Americans And ‘Intimidated Politicians’


Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) last week reiterated her stance that Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) was wrong to veto the controversial anti-gay state bill.

“There’s nothing about gays in there, but the gay community decided to make this their measure,” she told conservative radio host Lars Larson during an interview at CPAC, as recorded by Right Wing Watch.

“And the thing that I think is getting a little tiresome is the gay community, they have so bullied the American people and they have so intimidated politicians that politicians fear them and so they think they get to dictate the agenda everywhere. Well, not with the Constitution you don’t.”

Bachmann then said that the gay community has pushed for laws and court rulings that violate religious freedom.

“If you want take away my religious liberties, you can advocate for that but you do it through the constitutional process,” she said. “You don’t intimidate and no politician should give away my religious liberties or yours.”
