Gay Barbarian Horde’ Glitters Waiting Room of Bachmann Clinic
A “barbarian horde” of LGBT-rights activists traveled to Marcus Bachmann’s counseling center in Minnesota Thursday, chanted lyrics from a Lady Gaga song, demanded to see Bachmman and when he didn’t show up, glittered the waiting room.
The group was led by the same LGBT-rights activist who glittered Newt Gingrich back in May.
Bachmann, of course, has become famous in recent weeks thanks in part to his wife Michele’s presidential campaign and in part because of the Christian counseling center he runs in Minnesota. Bachmann has said he performs so-called gay reparative therapy at the clinic (but only at the request of his patients.)
Marcus Bachmann, who conducts “reparative therapy” at the clinic intended to convert homosexuals, has said that gays are “barbarians who need to be disciplined.” The horde requested to speak directly with Bachmann and experience some “discipline” for themselves.
When Marcus was no where to be found, the barbarians glittered the empty waiting room and reception area while chanting, “You can’t pray away the gay — baby, I was born this way!”
The action was organized by the same young man who threw glitter on Newt Gingrich, starting a national trend in political protest of anti-LGBT sentiments from political candidates and campaigns.
“Michele and Marcus Bachmann think gay people are barbarians?” asked LGBT activist Nick Espinosa. “I think its clear to everyone who the real barbarians are, based on the Bachmanns’ archaic views on LGBT equality.
If the purpose here is to win over the 90% of the population that isn‘t gay, this isn’t the way to do it. This is just stupid, childish and just weird. I don’t really care if someone is gay or not. That is between them & God. They have the NOH8 campaign and all the people who are pushing are actually the biggest haters I have ever seen. I am old enough to remember the 1970s where people got along much better then, they do today. Gay & straight people would go out and just dance at discos together. Since then we keep breaking down groups smaller & smaller and this is what is fractionating the US to the point there is a real chance we are going to collapse for good. I would think if a gay person wanted to be accepted by a straight person the first thing they should do is accept the straight person. Deal with each other one-on-one as a person not a member of a group.
