The Strange Disappearance Of Michele Bachmann’s Church Buddy, Peter E. Waldron

Last week The Atlantic uncovered that Michele Bachmann’s faith-based outreach Peter E. Waldron was once arrested in Uganda for terrorism, spoke at the church of a “Kill the Gays” advocate, and thinks any non-bible-based government is “totalitarian.” Now, a week later all traces of him on the internet have suddenly begun to to disappear. Coincidence? We think not.

Warren Throckmorton has more:

Now almost everything current related to Mr. Waldron has disappeared. His Facebook page is now private, and all that is left of his personal (peterewaldron.com) and movie promo (theultimatepricemovie.com) websites is the phrase, “under construction.”

Once three video interviews were available on YouTube. Hosted by Hermann and Sharron Bailey, the interviews focused on his time in the Ugandan prison on weapons charges. These are now marked private.

YouTube hosts two videos promoting the film about Waldron (The Ultimate Price). Now one of them (the 4-minute version) is marked private, while the two-minute version carries the disclaimer that the video is “unlisted.” For now, the embedding feature allows it to be shown, but it does not appear in YouTube search results.

Oh Mrs. Bachmann, you can run but you can’t hide from your anti-gay past, especially your involvement with the “You Can Run But You Cannot Hide International” hate minister Bradlee Dean. As we said, Bachmann’s refusal to publicly acknowledge her anti-gay stances is a sign of progress, but we should definitely remind her every step of the way just how she got where she is today.

      Hide your bigotry until you win and then it’s too late.

      So she is hiding her beliefs and refusing to answer questions about her opinions when reporters ask.

      Interesting that she thinks she can run for president without every answering a question. I guess Bachman has been taking lessons from Palin.

      “As we said, Bachmann’s refusal to publicly acknowledge her anti-gay stances is a sign of progress…” No, it’s not. It’s called trying to win an election.

      This would be like a Democrat touting their more conservative views in Iowa by doing something intentionally stupid, or better yet bowling, or better yet drinking beer in a local bar, or best of all denouncing evolution as just another theory and saying prayer should be allowed in school. It’s all stupid and it’s all to win. Politicians aren’t people. They’re ugly little sociopaths looking for the spotlight.

      But only Republicans worship the devil and feast on the bones of dead children and unicorn tears. So I choose blue!

      @MattCA181: Not a sign of progress *for her*, but a sign of progress with the population as a whole, that people like her find they have to hide their views on gays if they want to be popular.

      It certainly hasn’t always been like that!

      Hound and expose her and her really gay ex-gay husband till their dreams of the presidency have been ground into the dust. They are a sick bunch of Dominionist, Christofascist sadists and they deserve all the mud slung their way.

      Most Americans have no desire to live in an Islamic Totalitarian shithole like Afghanistan or those northernmost portions of Pakistan that are essentially becoming Afghanistan, yet routinely vote to have the same exact system forced upon us all in this country.
      If only they had a real clue that the Bachmans represent our own native Christian equivalent to the Taliban/Al Quaeda, they and most of their contempoaries in the ReTHUGlican Party would have ZERO supporters.
      Its just a shame that all the evidence in the world will probably be ignored by their supporters — the very same people who’d lynch them in a split second otherwise.
      Its the rest of us who already have it figured out as well as the “independents” in the middle (who are the ones we can actually reach) which will make a difference.

      Why are people spwending so much time on Bachmann?

      I thought she was a complete non-starter as a candidate.

      Does anyone seriously think she has a chance at election.

      I think the likes of Mitt Romney and Rick Perry should be bigger focuses.

      That’s what he means, though. That avoiding an announcement of your anti-gay position could help someone win an election–as a GOP candidate, no less–is a sign of progress.

      THANK YOU!

      You wonder why the people like Bachman are also constantly lashing out at fanatical islam? Well she is no different then they are. Look at the violence in the Islamic world…who is doing most of the fighting? The different factions of the religion. The Suni’s and the Shites. Bachman represents just another sect of crazy right wing religious nuts.

      This reminds me of how Charles Rozier started disappearing from people search sites after he became a rapist.
