Crazy Michele Bachmann Quotes

6 Ridiculous Things Michele Bachmann Has Said So Far

The latest crazy-things-coming-out-of-Michele-Bachmann's-mouth news involves a lecture she gave in 2004 featuring more of her tactless antigay sentiments. If you need a refresher on her other ridiculous quotes on homosexuality, Obama, and "science," keep reading.

  • "I find it interesting that it was back in the 1970s that the swine flu broke out under another, then under another Democrat president, Jimmy Carter. I'm not blaming this on President Obama, I just think it's an interesting coincidence." — 2009 interview with Pajamas Media
  • "Carbon dioxide is portrayed as harmful. But there isn't even one study that can be produced that shows that carbon dioxide is a harmful gas." — To the House of Representatives in April 2009
  • "We need to have profound compassion for the people who are dealing with the very real issue of sexual dysfunction in their life, and sexual identity disorders. This is a very real issue. It's not funny, it's sad. Any of you who have members of your family that are in the lifestyle — we have a member of our family that is. It's part of Satan, I think, to say this is gay. It's anything but gay." — Lecture at 2004 National Education Leadership Conference
  • "Multicultural diversity . . . sounds wonderful. But guess what? Not all cultures are equal." — Minnesota Republican 6th Congressional District Debate in 2005
  • "During the last 100 days we have seen an orgy. It would make any local smorgasbord embarrassed . . . The government spent its wad by April 26." — Antitax rally in May 2009
  • "Normalization (of gayness) through desensitization. Very effective way to do this with a bunch of second graders, is take a picture of The Lion King for instance, and a teacher might say, 'Do you know that the music for this movie was written by a gay man?' The message is: I'm better at what I do, because I'm gay." — EdWatch National Education Conference in 2004

Well she is right about one thing, not all cultures are equal. Self-righteous dogmatic homophobic conservative culture is a big step below the rest of us.

has anyone seen what bristol palin has to say about her 'moral code' on the View? I only watched a clip, if you haven't seen it, check it out. I cannot even imagine how she thought this sounded better than just saying the truth.......... the republican party has honestly boarded the train for crazy town

This chick is seriously out of line on countless levels. It is beyond concerning to think any rational person could think these thoughts, let alone spout them as fact in any political and/or public arena. She needs to shut her face and go away. Stat.

i really hope she becomes the candidate so we can keep obama in office. maybe we'll be lucky and get rid of the rest of the republican senators/representatives too.

The GOP can't run on serious issues Bonnieux, so they're pulling out social distractors.

Must have taken real strength to stop at just six – I love the ‘so far’ in the post title! Sadly this bigot is a serious contender (at least right now) for the presidential nomination of a major political party.
