Is the LGBT community bullying America?

Michele Bachmann Claims Gay People Have 'Bullied The American People' video and link

Posted: Updated: 

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) is still not pleased with Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer's (R) decision to veto SB 1062 late last month.

In an interview with conservative radio host Lars Larson during last week's Conservative Political Action Conference, Bachmann said the downfall of the bill, which would have allowed businesses to refuse service to gay individuals on religious grounds, illustrated how LGBT activists have "bullied" voters and politicians.

"There's nothing about gays in there. But the gay community decided to make this their measure," Bachmann said. "I think the thing that is getting a little tiresome, the gay community, they have so bullied the American people, and they've so intimidated politicians. The politicians fear them, so that they think they get to dictate the agenda everywhere."

Bachmann said, however, that liberals likely wouldn't attempt to change the U.S. Constitution to "take away" religious rights because "activist judges" and President Barack Obama will simply ignore the document instead.

"He's a lawless president who's violating the Constitution with every executive order," Bachmann said of Obama.

Bachmann had voiced her opposition to Brewer's veto in an interview with ABC News & Yahoo's "Fine Print" earlier this month.

“I was sorry that she made the decision, and it’s because I believe that tolerance is a two-way street and we need to respect everyone's rights, including the rights of people who have sincerely held religious beliefs," Bachmann said. "Right now, there's a terrible intolerance afoot in the United States, and it's against people who hold sincerely held religious beliefs."

The congresswoman, who is set to retire after this congressional session, has previously dismissed the issue of school bullies targeting gays.

"That's not a federal issue," Bachmann said in 2011.

The extreme right wing conservative leadership and it's lockstep followers have adopted a gaslighting policy to try and silence the voices they feel don't deserve to be heard.

Standing up for one's rights and telling others they won't accept the shit sandwich they are trying to feed them is not bullying.  But generally bullies get confused when their victims say enough is enough.

No more than other groups who insist everything should be their way or the highway.

Wow, just wow. It is so sad that so many do not understand the difference between special rights and equal rights.

I'm trying to better understand what you mean? How is it "my way or the highway" scenario when the LGBT community has to fight for equal rights afforded to typical/heterosexual people/couples. What undoing can be done bythe LGBT community that puts people who don't support them in an extremly tough situation(do it or else)?
