Who needs to be disciplined? If you ask Marcus Bachmann, it's gay barbarians, obviously!
A “horde” of activists, lead by Robert Erickson, took to Bachmann's health clinic in Minneapolis to protest Mr. Michele Bachmann's belief that being gay is something that should be “prayed away.” Bachmann's clinic has been accused of practicing “reparative therapy.” His clinic also receives taxpayer money.
Erickson released a press release on his site earlier today citing his motives:
Minneapolis, MN — Today a horde of gay barbarians descended upon Michele and Marcus Bachmann’s “pray away the gay” clinic and demanded that Marcus come out and discipline them for their “deviant” behavior.
Marcus Bachmann, who conducts “reparative therapy” at the clinic intended to convert homosexuals, has said that gays are “barbarians who need to be disciplined.” The horde requested to speak directly with Bachmann and experience some “discipline” for themselves.
When Marcus was no where to be found, the barbarians glittered the empty waiting room and reception area while chanting, “You can’t pray away the gay — baby, I was born this way!”
You should remember Erickson. He kicked off the glitter bomb trend earlier this year when he targeted presidential candidate Newt Gingrich at an event in Minnesota.
