Tea Party stalwart and presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann smiles her way through an attack on same-sex families and their marriage equality. Speaking at the GOP’s Faith And Freedom Coalition Conference in Washington, D.C., Bachmann applauded the Minnesota state legislature’s decision to put on the 2012 ballot a constitutional amendment banning marriage equality. Bachmann then brags about her own opposite-sex marriage of 33 years to a “family and marriage therapist,” and how much they love their kids.
When speaking to their own, antigay activist dispense with the somber tone you see on the talk shows and in debates. They stop pretending to understand that banning same-sex marriage has grave consequences for their fellow Americans. Instead they brag and celebrate our subordination. Wanna bet Bachmann would be screaming bloody murder if her ability to protect the rights of her own family were called into question by political foes?
