Michele Bachmann looks to Trump to reverse “evil” gay agenda

Former Congresswoman Michele Bachmann recently appeared on Family Research Council President Tony Perkins’ “Washington Watch” radio show, where she made known her support of Perkins’ call for President-elect Donald Trump to eliminate supporters of LGBTQ rights from the State Department.

The Trump transition team has already raised alarm bells with a memo sent to the Energy Department asking for the names of people who work on climate change, and another to the State Department looking for information on employees who have worked “to promote gender equality, such as ending gender-based violence, promoting women’s participation in economic and political spheres, entrepreneurship, etc.”

Perkins asserted that under President Obama “our government has been perverted to be used to advance an ungodly agenda” and “undermine American values both abroad and here at home.”

“How does the State Department, how does the United States government bless or curse?” Bachmann asked. “You brought it up yourself with the State Department, where we’ve seen such evil come out of our State Department, unfortunately, where financial incentives are withheld from countries unless they advance, for instance, the gay agenda.”

“In a country that doesn’t believe in the gay agenda but the Obama State Department has said, ‘You have to have a gay pride parade. You have to make sure that you can show us that ministers are marching in these gay pride parades.'” she claimed. “What? The U.S. government is telling another government that you have to have gay pride parades? That’s unbelievable. You won’t get your PEPFAR money, you won’t get your USAID money unless you follow our radical social agenda?”

PEPFAR stands for the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, and is a United States government initiative to help combat HIV/AIDS worldwide. USAID funds go toward fighting poverty and for disaster relief initiatives abroad.

In the interview, Bachmann also cited debunked claims that Barack Obama intervened in an Israeli election in order to defeat the country’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, while insisting “Jewish people are so thrilled that Donald Trump is going to be the next president.”

      Out of Congress but this walking trash fire Bachman is still burning. Maybe she should focus on her barely-closeted husband and her own mental health rather than fomenting hate against others.

      Doesn’t surprise me. There are lots of Republicans (and even some of the resentful Dems that went Republican this time around) that voted against their better interests in hopes of stopping “the gay agenda”.

      …and in hopes of mass deportation and a Muslim registry and ban. When you sum it all up, “deplorables” was really too kind of a description. Basket of vermin is more like it.

      I wonder if Michele Bachmann’s husband is bisexual. Often, women go crazy with homophobia if they think their husband can swing both ways.

      Sorry Michele, Trump is not a conservative on social issues.

      Michele would truly be happier if she would accept and practice the following —

      1. A great message from the Methodists to all Christians —

      “Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.”

      2. An alternative Ten Commandments? —

      1. Therefore let us stop passing judgment on one another. Instead, make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in your brother’s way…..Romans 14:13

      2. Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God…..Romans 15:7

      3. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love….Ephesians 4:2

      4. …all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble….1 Peter 3:8

      5. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves…..Philippians 2:3

      6. Be peaceable and considerate, and always to be gentle toward everyone…..Titus 3:2

      7. Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven…..Luke 6:37

      8. ABOVE ALL, LOVE EACH OTHER DEEPLY, because love covers over a multitude of sins….1 Peter 4:8

      9. Let your gentle spirit be known to all men…..Philippians 4:5

      10. Don’t seek your own good, but the good of others…….. 1 Corinthians 10:24

      She’s a sad case of religious fanaticism….Very much like that awful CokeCola depraved women of the sixties.
      She must be a zombie in bed.

      And now these three remain, faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.

      @Neonegro: Sorry, NeoNegro, Trump IS a social conservative because it services his platform. (We all have to watch our backs)

      Now that we know trump eats in the hand of putin, I dont doubt he will implement the same kind of censorship that happens in Russia.

      @jdboston617: I don’t have to watch my back at all. I am fine with Trump and his vision of the world.
