There comes a point at which there are no more words to describe the ever increasing number of crazy or misinformed statements coming out of the mouth of Representative Bachmann. While we have established that her grasp of history is, well, not so well developed you have to wonder if there is ANY processes within her brain that examine the words that are coming out of her mouth.

Once again yesterday, Bachmann took to the floor of the House of Representatives to rail against Hate Crimes legislation because allowing someone to physically harm someone else based solely upon their "sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability of any person" is a sacred right enshrined within the First Amendment. More vile than that is how Bachmann distorts the bill and tries to connect being gay to pedophilia.

From Minnesota Independent:

The bill, the Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act, adds “sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability of any person” to existing federal law which currently includes race, color, religion, or national origin. Minnesota Reps. Betty McCollum and James Oberstar are co-sponsors.

Contrary to Bachmann’s statement, pedophilia is not considered a sexual orientation, a disability or a gender identity, and is instead a criminal act.

In addition to these vile remarks, Bachmann tries to make some sort of coherent connection between hate crimes and traffic accidents...

Really? I believe that one deserves a Face Palm because there are no words...
