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

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.

It can be expected that anytime an effective Conservative rises out of the rino muck, then the lib media starts the slime machine.

Given the choice, I'd rather take my chance with the poofers than with the jihadists.

At least gays aren't trying to bring down airliners.

Meanwhile, there are like 7 RINOs in the race and not one of them has faced the least bit of scrutiny.

“At least gays aren’t trying to bring down airliners.”

Just wait and see what they are going to do in the courts.

Saturday Night Live starts in September or October. That’s when it will really get bad.

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.

I can detect lisps in this guy as well... and he's definitely gay:

Why would you say something like that?

The left focus their attacks on the one they perceive to be the greatest threat to their agenda.
