    Link: Michele Bachmann Disses Young Gay Rights Activist - It`s hard to hear but he leans in and tells her that his mom is gay and she doesn`t need fixing. She blows him off.

    Just because he`s supports equal rights for gays doesnt make him an activist.

    Well for starters, I don`t like Bachmann. But come on, the person with the camera walks away and the video ends, she could have said something after that.

    Oh please. Like anyone here is really going to say anything more than "Buh-bye" after some stranger coax`s her kid into saying something absolutely awkward to you.

    Here:

    "Awkward little mixed race boy": My daddy forgives you for your grandparents racism.
    "Any sane person": Yeah.... buh-bye.

    So? Traps like this mean nothing.
    What`s she supposed to say to the kid?

    "No honey, your mommy is the spawn of Satun and will be taken into custody....SECURITY!!!! Take the Whale Down!!!"

    C`mon, she`s not even really a bigot. She hates her husband for good reason. He`s the only gay she knows. Makes sense for her to hate gays. I`d forgive her.

    Ignorant, but, really, she`s not unjustified based on her limited information.

    I agree that LGBT people don`t need `fixing` anymore than hetero`s; I agree as well that Michele Bachmann`s views on the matter are moronic. However, check out the look she gives the mother after understanding what the kid said- you know her beliefs that non-hetero people are unqualified to raise kids has just been reinforced; And it is just bad parenting to involve children in adult matters.

    Okay, lesbo woman sends her son to say something `to the nasty woman` (also, something the kid obviously did not want to do) and films it in hopes of a Gotcha moment.

    Typical lib: willing to throw their children into the front lines (in some cases, in front of moving vehicles during a strike) and then have the audacity to say `it`s for the children`!

    This video proves two things:
    1) The mother has no respect for her child or others &
    2) The child is obviously embarrassed that his mom is a lesbo. (but then, what child is not, at some time, embarrasses by his parents?)

    Classless.

    @MeGrendel - I don`t agree with using kids in this manner either, but about the "typical lib" comment. Um. Have you never seen the opposing side to this argument? Pretty much the only argument against gay marriage that doesn`t have to do with religious texts is "think of the kids!". I distinctly remember the prop 8 videos talking about how gay marriage = kids learning to be gay in schools and reading gay books, and how it`d destroy traditional marriages (and they used kids in the advertisements). Also they like to have kids holding up signs when they protest. Not just for the anti-gay arguments either, conservatives in general like to do this on other issues. Just look at pictures of conservatives protesting and I`m sure you`ll find a kid holding up a sign and being used by the parents to gain sympathy. Your "typical lib" argument is complete trash. I`ve seen it happen on both sides about equally (and I hate it).

    Typical conservative. Denouncing libs without the slightest sense of self-awareness of their own hypocrisy.

    as much as I think that bachmann is a bitch, that mother is even more of a bitch for using her kid to get her point across. The kid probably doesn`t have a clue why she is saying it.

    you guys have no clue what happened before that...it is likely that the child said that to her mom on his own before going over to Bachman.

    also, this is no way harmed the child and may have just taught them how to stand up to a bigot. that is one of the greatest lessons a child could ever learn and something many people never did, hence we have candidates like Bachman.

    you say it is using her child, I say it is teaching the child to be strong and assert himself. lessons in life are not always fun or pleasant to watch but we have to go through them in order to be a better person.

    Bachman needs to see the other side, needs to know there are children she may be hurting by singling out their gay parents.

    I ask what is worse, a parent letting their child stand up to Bachman for being a modern day bigot, or the child hearing Bachman`s anti-gay rants and thinking something is wrong with them and their mom for being gay?

    Where does Bachmann "blow him off"? Biased caption much?
    She listens to him, twice, then when he scampers off, she smiles and waves `bye-bye`. Looks to me that she was nice about that "mom" using her child as a human torpedo...

    @LilianDulci: Cain did drop out, and I think that`s @Baelzar`s point, eh?

    ...it is likely that the child said that to her mom on his own before going over to Bachman.
    @Jamie76: A child that age? Say that on his own? What planet are you from, lolz! His `mother` drilled him on what to say, then forced him to go say it, hoping for her moment of internet fame. Sickening.

    "you say it is using her child, I say it is teaching the child to be strong and assert himself."

    But would you say the same thing if it was the other way around? Some parents using their kid to spread anti-gay hate? Their parents could justify it too (they`re teaching the kid good moral values or some crap like that). If Bachmann was shouting about how being gay is wrong and this kid went up to her on his own free will and told her that then it`s one thing, but I highly doubt that`s what happened.

    (I made an account just to reply to you)

    You sir are stupid. You really think that a child understands any of this. He will know his mum has a girlfriend and not much more, he clearly doesnt want to be there and trys to go but his poo mother tell him to say it louder.

    the lesson he will learn from this is when some in athority tells you do something, even if you dont understand what it is and you are embrassed by it is not to ask questions and do as your told, this a bad thing to do as a mother.

    if your a gay parent and you have kids, don`t drag them in to your problems, once they are old enough and understand that`s fine. but your indoctrinating them the same way the anti gay people do. if your a good parent your child will grown up and learn for him self there`s nothing wrong with been gay and they can be good parents

    This video is pretty shameful. I don`t personally like Bachmann but she did the right thing under the circumstances. The mother of the child was definitely in the wrong for dragging her kid into a battle he has no right being in. And `Young Gay Rights Activist?` Uhh, no. Step it up, Fancy.

    The child was shy, frightened, and prompted. Regardless of your stance on this subject, it is not right to force your child to represent an opinion that he or she hasn`t formulated on their own, simply to push your agenda, while also trying to elicit embarrassment by using your child, as well. So there.

    This is just as bad as making your kid hold your home-made `pro life` sign in front of the Planned Parenthood. Why not let the kid form his own opinion through his own course of life? The woman already has an upper hand (or set back, depending on her parental skills) by raising him in a tolerant environment.

    Michele Bachmann is braindead and never knows what to say but in this situation there is nothing to say. Even if she had a thought out answer (LOL) why argue it with a kid who clearly was told to say it and didn`t even want to. It`s also one thing to counter-point an opposing adult but anything contradictory she might of said no matter how thought out, polite, or un-biggoted (if that`s possible on this one) would have been spun as inappropriately interfering with the parents choice of upbringing.

    @britt566 - What video were you watching? She clearly blew the kid off. I don`t know what else you`d call responding to his statement with "bye bye."

    In any case, despite the fact that I loathe Bachmann`s stance on homosexuality and adamantly support the right of same-sex couples to marry and raise children, I do find it distasteful that this particular mother decided to use her small child, who is too young to understand politics, to make a political point.
