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