US: Republican Michele Bachman suggests gay people are predators and polygamists
US right wing republican Michele Bachmann, who is currently running for re-ection for her seat in the House of Representative has let fly on air with a tirade against LGBT people, suggesting they are predators and polygamists.
Bachman made the comments while speaking on a conservative radio show, Faith and Liberty.
Right Wing Watch journalist Brain Tashman reported the one-time presidential candidate said gay people want the repeal of uneven age of consent laws so they can prey on children.
She described LGBTI people’s quest for equal rights as an effort to force speech and behaviour
“This is their ultimate goal, is to not allow for diversity of opinion on this issue. Because they don't want to be celebrated, they want to force everyone to not only agree with them, but also have to finance their agenda. They also believe that they have the right, David, to determine on a near daily basis what their agenda is.
While Bachman said the current focus was on transgender righs she suggested it wouldn't be long before LGBT people were calling for polygamy and sex with children as acceptable.
"Today the big push is on transgender, and so they're continuing to push this down the road. I believe that we're going to see coming an effort for multiples in marriage, not just two, but multiples in marriage, I think they want to legalise that.I think also they want to abolish age of consent laws, which means children — we would do away with statutory rape laws so that adults would be able to freely prey on little children sexually. That's the deviance that we're seeing embraced in our culture today."
Bachmann has led the charge in Minnesota on banning gay marriage and has been vocal in her anti-gay views.
