Michele Bachmann: “The Gay Community Has Bullied The American People”

"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.” - Michele Bachmann.

I have so many problems with this woman, but to save you guys a lot of time, it'll focus on just a couple. First off, how can those words come out of her mouth when almost the entire history of the LGBT community and the activism connected has been driven by the oppression, intimidation and bullying from government and the officials working for them?

As for bullying American people, can we rewind to the times when the American people were literally dragging LGBT people out of bars and beating them in the gutter? Or does that bullying not matter to her? Or even exist as bullying?

Only an idiot would put history in the back of their mind and she has done exactly that. I am baffled by this level of ignorance, especially to fuel anger and frustration towards a group of people who have suffered through everything she's blatantly ignored.
