BDS2: Is Michele Bachmann’s Husband….Gay? [Think Progress pusing this?]

BDS2: Is Michele Bachmann’s Husband….Gay?

You’d think that, one day, the Left would figure out that we know exactly who scares the watermelon juice out of them by how much they attack that person/group. Conversely, we know who doesn’t scare them, because they say “that guy scares us!” (see John Huntsman). Michele Bachmann is on the top of the hit-list at the moment, which Chicago Pride going with Is anti-gay candidate Michele Bachmann married to a gay man?

Is Marcus Bachmann, husband of Republican presidential candidate and Rep. Michele Bachmann, a closeted gay man? That’s the question that’s lighting the internet on fire this weekend.

Well, maybe in the insane-o-sphere, but, most of us on the Right have been celebrating the Declaration of Independence (kinda strange how the USA doesn’t celebrate Treaty of Paris, which was signed on September 3, 1783, ending the Revolutionary War. Or January 14, 1784, when the Congress of Confederation signed the Treaty. A thought for a different day.)

Dr. Bachmann runs his own “Christian Counseling” practice in Minnesota, and one of his specialties is “helping” people “overcome” homosexuality.
But many online pundits are pointing out that those who speak the most vociferously against homosexuality are often hiding something.

Of course! They’ve found us out! Everyone on the Right is gay! We’re either lesbians trapped in a man’s body or homosexuals trapped in a woman’s body.

ThinkProgress found a clip of Dr. Bachmann talking about homosexuality:

And there you go: George Soros funded Think Progress is pushing the smear. Shocker.

Anyhow, they push the meme like being gay is a bad thing. Interesting how they always seem to use this smear (along with “you’re a raaaaacist”)

BDS2 – Bachmann Derangement Syndrome. #2 because Bush will always be the first who pushed the left to complete unhinged behavior.

According to Rush the Left trashes who they fear so they must be fearing Bachmann. Like the article says, I guess according to their logic, nearly everyone on Free Republic is gay/lesbian. I suppose we're all racists too. ;-)

Whether he’s gay or not, is it any of their, or our, business?

Of course it is no one else's business.

BUT: it says:
"George Soros funded Think Progress
is pushing the smear. Shocker.

Soros is Romney's partner in JET BLUE and other
businesses. Ironic that Ms. Bachmann continues to get
whacked by her very own "President Romney".

If he is gay, the left should be praising her for her “diversity” and “tolerance”.

Is anti-gay candidate Michele Bachmann married to a gay man?

If so, then Michele Bachmann and Michele Obama have a lot in common.

Same thing with the whole "teabagger" thing. The stupid phakin' libs trip all over themselves telling each other how tolerant and diverse they are and how they flat out love everything about gay's, then turn around and derisively call conservatives "teabaggers" .

What a bunch of phonies they truly are.

You’ve got to be kidding.

Rep. Bachmann’s vaunted ‘business experience’ is helping her husband with his homosexual therapy company—that alone has the Democrats salivating at the chance to decide she’s outlived her usefulness. If hubby were closeted gay, slipping up, then they’d holler ‘hypocrisy’ with such glee that they would achieve liberal nirvana.

This makes whatever they could bribe out of those 23 formerly troubled foster-care teens look like peanuts. Can you really blame them for chomping at the bit?

Typical Liberal/Abortion Mill/Reparation Group trick.
Accuse you of what they are:
For example: Tea Baggers rather than Tea Party

Once I overheard, during a political discussion/argument regarding gays and promiscuous sex the liberal, pro-abortion woman called the conservative man a “Latent Homosexual”. Talk about an empty ad hominem.

Big yawn...

Who is to say Mitt's Merry Band of Dumpster Diving Bottom Feeders isn't behind this?
Or even Mr. Rollins trying to create the illusion that his candidate has been as vilified by the left as Governor Palin.

I don’t think Romney’s team is nearly ready to kill of Rep. Bachmann and I do think this is too dicey an area even for Mr. Rollins to go.

I expect it is just some stray leftists, again, chomping at the bit. Nothing organized or coordinated, just too obvious a line of thinking for the overactive leftist mind.

Probably nothing will come of it, in combination of there being nothing there and Bachmann fading before such a story would get actual traction anyway.

I wondered what kind of mental health counseling took place at her husband's clinic. She did mention he's a marriage counselor at a recent town-hall event.

If the clinic is one of those "reparative therapy" places then she's done. However, if it's just a place where gays can come to come with depression and those issues, it won't be a problem for her campaign.

They could evaporate Bachmann’s campaign almost the very second they wanted to.

Here’s a quote from her husband. Sounds more reparative than simply having gays come for counseling on depression:

ThinkProgress found a clip of Dr. Bachmann talking about homosexuality:

“We have to understand: Barbarians need to be educated. They need to be disciplined. And just because someone thinks this or feels this doesn’t mean that we’re supposed to go down that road. That’s what’s called a sinful nature. And we have a responsibility as parents and as authority figures not to encourage such thoughts and feelings to move into the action steps,” he said.

“And let’s face it. What is our culture, what is our public school system doing today? They are giving full, wide-open doors not only to children, not only encouragement to think it, but encouragement to action steps,” he continued.

I have yet to get a satisfactory answer on why the most denigrating, despicable epithet the homo-left can think of to level at their opponent is that he must be "gay." Revealing, much?

It proves he isn’t gay. The man is married, lives as a heterosexual, and has a healthy sex life with his wife. That would not fall under “gay” in my book.

This type rhetoric will not fly with independents. Destroys the Bachmann meme that she can connect with all groups.

There is an article on WSJ, by Albert Mohler of the Southern Bapitist church, debating this exact same subject.

The essence of what he is saying is, hate the sin, love the sinner. We have all sinned and come short of the glory of God. Admitting that is the first step to salvation and sharing the news of God’s gift is the responsibility of all believers.

The problem arises from the way the believers choose to do this, either through example or direct witnessing. Either way should not include judgment because we are all sinners in one way or another.

In contrast to the easy pickings with the Bachmanns, what’s scary to the left about Palin is that although she is straightforward about her Christian and conservative convictions and she has been very actively pro-life, she, like Reagan, doesn’t speak with hate or intolerance toward those who are gay or pro-choice.

She, her family and her state are clearly very much of a libertarian line of economic conservative-first policy and that’s why she has historically been able to do so well with independents.

According to the Left (er, now “progressives”), there is nothing wrong with being gay. It is a perfectly natural alternative lifestyle. If so, then why is this news and why should it matter to anyone?

Speaking practically on the national political level, a ‘counseling’ service that counsels gays not to act on their gay inclinations isn’t going to fly. It simply isn’t.

There is possible way he could end up being as nasty as you have been toward Bachmann.

You're the ultimate hypocrite, pitching a fit about tactics you and several others embrace and engage.
