Michele Bachmannís Husband is Gay Meme (Gay Activists Pushing hard on this)
Outside the Beltway ^ | 07/15/2011 | James Joyner

Posted on 07/15/2011 12:53:53 PM PDT by SeekAndFind

I’ve been hearing whispers that Michele Bachmann’s husband, Marcus, is gay for a while. It’s now exploding into a full-on meme.

Given my early bedtime, I’m always at least a day late on “Daily Show” bits. Last night, I saw this episode from Wednesday:

Now, I admit, Marcus Bachmann is pudgy and has a less-than-baritone voice. But, last I checked, those aren’t the distinguishing characteristics of homosexuality.

Apparently, gay activist Dan Savage has started pushing the meme hard, too. And Slate’s June Thomas is calling him out:

Dan Savage begins each of his “Savage Love Cast” podcasts with a rip-roaring rant—a sword of invective aimed at homophobic school boards that won’t let lesbians attend their high-school prom, hypocritical politicians, and generally despicable people. It’s a rousing start to 45 minutes of sex advice, and it’s usually right on and empowering.

This week, though, the podcast started with an attack on Marcus Bachmann’s masculinity.After a short preamble about the accuracy of gaydar (with a scientific citation, no less), Savage—whom I respect tremendously—played a tape of Michele’s* husband’s speaking voice. Bachmann has a tiny bit of a lisp—though it’s barely perceptible—and he slurs his words slightly. To Savage’s ears, it was a gay accent. Savage played the tape over and over, and reprised it several times throughout the podcast. He even did his own Bachmann impression, exaggerating the lisp and camping it up.

...and how is it that they have not pronounced Obama gay for marrying such a “man-ish” gal? I would imagine this hypocracy has not escaped most of us, so how did it escape the media?

Fagots, like certain animals, must defecate on things to make them their own.

The Homosexual movement is a greater threat to American freedom than Islam.

Can you imagine the firestorm of venom that would spew from Left if the husband of a Democrat candidate were accused of being a homo just because of his "less-than-baritone" voice?

Leftists [communists] can support two opposing agendas* at the same time if it furthers their power and advances communist domination (ie, destruction of capitalism and Christianity),

so hypocrisy is not a stretch.

You are so right Mr.B. I have often wondered how the lefties can so wholeheartedly support Muslims AND the homosexual communty when they have to know that muslim radicals want to destroy gays much MORE than they do the rest of us.

Marcus Bachmann Sends Stewart’s Gaydar Off Charts

(Newser) – Jon Stewart nearly explodes on the Daily Show last night holding in a flood of zingers he’d like to deliver about the apparent sexual orientation of Michele Bachmann’s seemingly self-hating gay-bashing husband Marcus. But he holds his tongue as best he can, finally spilling that the mister has apparently “absorbed” all the gayness his “Christian counseling” therapy clinic is reportedly trying to eradicate. Then he runs a clip of a dancing Marcus, remarking that he’s an “Izod shirt away from the gay character on Modern Family.”

Still, Stewart struggles mightily not to “ridicule” Bachmann for his “seeming hypocrisy,” even though his clinic therapy is “doing real damage to real people.” He then runs a clip of Bachmann calling gays “barbarians” who “need to be disciplined.” OK, OK, Stewart finally dishes as he flashes a scene from Hollywood Squares: “He dances and sounds not only gay, but center-square gay.”

Jon Stewart just started on Marcus. It’s pretty much over.
see the article about Jon Stewart

When this story broke a couple weeks ago, the person who posted it said only “this will not end well”.

Truth be told I believe the Obama stories out of Chicago. While I’ve seen much less, if anything, re: Marcus, his style, interests and proclivities are such that his being gay wouldn’t be a shock.

Has he been indiscreet and active such that there’s anything of substance on him? That would somewhat surprise me, but it’s a possibility.

And you should understand the Democrat view by now: only gays in the GOP are hypocritical or newsworthy, because they tend to take relatively anti-gay positions.

Read “You Can Still Trust the Communists to be Communists”

for an explanation. It’s in my post as well - whatever it takes to advance communist/marxist POWER, they’ll do, and it matters not if the causes are in conflict, or if it even appears that they are working against communism.

Whatever vehicle to power presents itself, they’ll use, and once they have sufficient power, then they implement the “Dictatorship of the Proletariat”.

Unfortunately there are plenty on the right behaving the exactly same way because they think they’re helping Sarah Palin. In the long run they’re doing just as much damage to Palin because of a wrongheaded belief that she can take on the entire GOP establishment and win. I don’t believe she can do it alone.

If they don’t figure it out fast, we’ll end up with Mitt Romney as the nominee and they’ll have no one but themselves to blame.

Make sure and see my previous comment to you - I wouldn’t want you to miss it.

You think I protest the encroachment of homosexuality into our culture too much????? You must seriously have your head in the sand, mister.

On certain days good 1/5th of the article on this site are dealing with that very topic - but I guess you would surmise that that make FR a “pro-gay” site... Since we must be protesting the issue too much.

... And you would be wrong. Just like you are wrong about me. I’m about as heterosexual as they come. The homos are destroying our great country and I utterly hate them for it.

How DARE you accuse me like. Fool.

As evidence, Stewart played a clip of Marcus Bachmann swing-dancing with Michele and also a clip of his slightly lispy voice.

But Seinfeld was there to help Stewart avoid the juvenile line of humor and hoped to counsel him toward more high-minded jokes, such as mocking Bachmann’s name.

“Bach-Man,” Seinfeld said. “What is that? Some classical music superhero? Bach-Man?”

Seinfeld even tried to slap the ridicule out of Stewart after “The Daily Show” host said, “He’s so gay he calls ‘Top Gun’ that volleyball movie,” about Bachmann.

“Comedy is a choice,” Seinfeld said. “You weren’t born this way. You can resist it. You must resist it.”

But each eventually couldn’t resist and threw out one-liners insinuating that Bachmann is gay.

“Dr. Marcus Bachmann buys Brawny paper towels for the packaging,” Seinfeld joked. “He’s so gay Richard Simmons tells him to ‘tone it down.’”

What do you think? Are comedians just taking cheap shots at Bachmann? Or are Marcus Bachmann’s actions so outlandish and offensive he deserves all the ridicule he’s getting?

that’s from the Baltimore Sun -

I don’t watch Stewart anymore after it because absolutely clear that “bashing the President” wasn’t his thing, but “bashing Republicans” was.

However, Jon Stewart is not an obscure political pundit. He’s a comedian, and it appears that Marcus = great comedy.

Ms. Bachmann....is your husband gay? ........ah.....

seriously......do we have any rights anymore? Leave them alone. Spreading rumors and tales out of school is just plain tacky. This is all part of the libleft's campaign against those who do not support the gay agenda. He has been a Christian counselor working against the gay agenda. So what? Don't we still have rights in this country to free speech and religion?

"great comedy" =/= actually funny ideas.

Take away the canned laugh-track, turn your brain on, and I think you'll realize that most "comedy" material is mere stupidity (or worse).
