UPDATED: Gay Barbarians Glitterbomb Bachmann’s Ex-Gay Clinic… Now On Video!

THE SHOT - Michele Bachmann’s husband Marcus once compared gays to “barbarians” that needed to be “educated” and “disciplined.” So in response, Newt Gingrich’s glitter bomber Nick Espinosa got a bunch of his gay barbarian friends to visit Marcus’ ex-gay clinic this morning and glitterbomb it while demanding “discipline.” We imagine Mr. Bachmann must be overjoyed with all his new clients!

      @Patrick: I’m wondering how many people will dress up as Bachmann and her “husband.” The gay barbarian thing might be quite fun!

      Well I’m sure being “glitter-bombed” will change Bachmann’s negative views about gay people. This group of protesters looks perfectly normal and sane. And doesn’t everybody throw glitter dust at people when they’re mad at them?

      I do too – an outrageous costume that would be dirt cheap! Too bad it will probably be too cold to use it. Again, maybe not too bad!

      At least it will give me an excuse to work out a lot before late October. A little extra motivation never hurts.

      Frankly, glitter bombing is such a perfect gay protest. It’s just so gay! And if we’re to be called every name in the book and beyond — (a short list: anti-family, barbarians, evil, disordered, anti-God, anti-children, anti-America, anti-civilization, sick, demented, queer, fag, faggot, depraved, unfortunate, better off dead — any more?) Well, then, let us get creative. We really have nothing to lose. For all reason is gone with the worse of the anti-gay crowd. Maybe some humor will defuse their wrath. There can be no backlash, they hate us unto non-existence. They can be nor more vile in their anti-us then they are. And, obviously, reason and reality do not do the trick. So glitter throwing, as we’re accused of “attacking” anything, while in Speedos or other costumes, is so thespian that it is a worthwhile endeavor.

      Remember, these people are out to eliminate us — and we have the right to defend ourselves. And the best defense is a good offense. And comedy, ridicule, and living well are the best revenge. Go for it.

      @Jim Hlavac: Sista Please! Where do you have any evidence that Bachmann ever said or supported “anti-family, barbarians, evil, disordered, anti-God, anti-children, anti-America, anti-civilization, sick, etc etc” Since you have ZERO evidence that Bachmann said or supported any of the above then you have to admit that they went after the wrong target. But you and the very serious folks who did this are fine with blaming any person who doesn’t dance on a gay pride float with the label bigot- I throw that bigot name right back into your face. Since you have judged and condemned Bachmann for things that he never said and never did.

      I was once mugged by a black guy, so now by your logic I would be free to be racist against all black people.

      And what an over-the-top melodramatic statement “these people are out to eliminate us” No but the Iranians hanging gays- those are the people that Obama wants to hold out the hand of friendship to.

      Oh and the “We have nothing to lose” statement- HA! speak for yourself pal, Every time you media whoring twits do something like this I lose just that much more traction on the long hard fight for equality, I fight that I wage every day- not just when I think I can garner some You-Tube attention by a silly media stunt.

      @Jim in St Louis: You are seriously too fucking stupid to pay attention to the video and the quote straight from Bachman that says, “barbaians need to be educated…they need to be disciplined…sinful nature.” That quote was directed at parents of gay youths. Seriously, that fucking quote was directed at gay youths AFTER the suicide epidemic came to light. Hell, he might as well as just told parents to murder their children by being as supportive at home as their classmates are in the schools.

      Oh, and your theory holds no fucking water either, because you just go ahead and try to do your assimilation to get the big bad fundies to love you. It will never work because they are disgusted by you no matter how much you try to be like them. You could be them, and they would STILL be disgusted by you. So, while you are trying to kiss their ass to fight your “long hard fight for equality” its the people that are being media whores that bright actual attention to the issues.

      The more people that know of or hear of a gay guy and think to themselves that that person isn’t what all the fundies try to say they are the more we win support.

      @Jim in St Louis: What a self-loathing, pathetic existence you live in. Don’t you get it? According to the Bachmanns, you’re barbarian and part of Satan.

      @tjr101: I get it, but who cares about the friggen Bachmanns? Why do people care about a couple of loons? You should ignore the loonies and don’t give them power over you. And don’t make them into celebrity boogiemen, the same way they (the Left) made Sarah Palin into a household name, they are making Michelle Bachmann into a household name. They are devoting time and coverage to her family, just as they did the Palins. And it needs to stop. No one gives a frig about the Bachmanns.

      @Kev C: “No one gives a frig about the Bachmanns.” Not according to the GOP voters in Iowa. There’s enough batshit crazy people in the GOP base for her to win. The GOP establishment may not want her (they prefer the flip flopper from MA), but grassroots GOP voters do.

      Honestly though, I would love nothing more than to see her win the GOP nomination!

      @tjr101: Who covered Sarah Palin non-stop, every day for 2 years? Drudge? Brietbart? Malkin, RedState, LGF, etc? No, it was HuffPo, DKos, Bill Maher, SNL, Wonkette, et al. It was the Left who made her a household name and plastered her picture and her family on the news everyday. And the same is happening with Michelle Bachmann.

      And the Right Wing sees this and rallies to support them .. just to spite the Left. Hey, if the lefties hate her this much, she must be good. See how it works? Don’t give crazy people attention. Don’t do it. Resist the urge to care about the Bachmanns.

      Does Bachmann have blood on their hands?

      @Daez: EPIC FAIL !!! You are the one who obviously did not listen to the audio. He was talking about CHILDREN being ‘barbarians’ who needed to be educated. and only peripherally how that relates to homosexuality as a very self indulgent lifestyle. Nice try bringing in gay suicide into the conversation. (seriously is there EVER a time you don’t try to play the drama victim card?)

      @Kev C: I get it, but who cares about the friggen Bachmanns? Why do people care about a couple of loons?

      You do know that “couple of loons” are millionaires thanks to massive amounts of federal money, and are extracting cash from your incomes to pay for the long-term damage they’re doing to gay kids?

      Not enough of a reason to care?

      Well, how about this — one of them is a member of Congress, one of the 1,000 most powerful people in America.

      Still not reason enough?

      One of them is a front-runner for the presidency in one of the country’s two most powerful political parties, putting her close to massive amounts of power.

      Still not reason enough?

      Then I’m not going to be able to help you understand. Sorry.

      Yeah, I mean, it’s not like she’s working for FOX News, was a former governor, was a vice presidential candidate, has a reality TV show, or has done anything else to warrant media attention (and monetize it).

      And the Right Wing sees this and rallies to support them .. just to spite the Left. Hey, if the lefties hate her this much, she must be good. See how it works?

      So the irrational reactionary nature of the right should be the sole motivating factor for decisions made by anybody who isn’t a member of the reactionary right?

      That’s some good advice. Not.

      ^ So, given your theory is correct (which I personally think it’s full of crap, who ELSE would he be directing those comments at other than gay youth?) it’s better that Bachmann’s referring to children as barbarians…why? He leaves homosexuality as the “peripheral” topic because it’s still considered uncouth to actually come out and SAY that gays are barbarians and scum. Because that wouldn’t come off as very Christ-like, would it?

      And in the words of Jon Stewart, Bachmann’s so gay, he calls Top Gun ‘that volleyball movie’. Sending kids to *him* to get converted to heterosexuality is a laugh and a half. Bachmann is just upset that his self-loathing prevents him from leading the “self-indulgent”, authentic lifestyle of a normal gay guy who has self-worth and is not psychologically traumatized by internalized homophobia.

      I feel sorry for him, and Jesus probably does too. But nobody forced him to get a merkin. There are tons of queer people that don’t feel it necessary to project their personal self-loathing on other gay people.

      You can get there too Marcus! We believe in you!
