Michele Bachmann Thinks Laws That Protect LGBT People Are “Tyranny”

by Jeremy Kinser January 16, 2016


Fervidly right-wing “historian” David Barton recently went ahead and burdened the general public with an 18-part DVD series called Foundations of Freedom — available here for $79.95, no thanks — that features Barton and various guests hanging out and interminably pondering everything from “the formation of American law and the judicial system to Biblically-based economics, science, government [and how] our Founding Fathers used the Bible as a blueprint for America’s freedoms.” (Could this be the cure to modern binge-watching that we’ve all been waiting for?)

On a whim, Barton trots out surprise guest Michele Bachmann — still a member of Congress at the time of filming — who wastes no time hunkering down to regale her delighted interviewee with from-the-hip talk about how LGBTQ-inclusive hate crimes are a form of “tyranny.”

Here’s but a taste of her scabby thought process:

“That’s what’s so brilliant about our form of government and God’s form of government — that we are equal before the law. God says He’s not a respecter of persons, He’s not partial, so why should we, why should government be partial? … A creator God created us equal.”

Really getting into it, Bachmann pulls no punches as she starts crowing and complaining about hate crime legislation that passed in 2009, which includes protections against crimes based on sexual orientation. Again, like someone studying for the SAT with flash cards, Bachmann insists this is “tyranny.”

“It’s political correctness that rules the day. So when you’re part of a favored group, then you get special benefits that nobody else gets. That’s the very form of tyranny because when government supposedly gives something — government has nothing to give, they have to take it away from other people. So when they give it to that certain group, that means, by definition, they’re taking it away from you.”

Take it away, Michele:
