The point has been made in the YouTube comments:
Who has all the political power and media access?
When she went on Glenn Beck to portray herself as a victim, unfairly cast as a homophobe, WHO was using the little boy as a pawn?
The mother was teaching her child courage and confidence to stand up for what is right, using her iphone camera to inspire others to do the same, confront bigotry and homophobia.
Who is now portraying herself as the victim?
The child was no hero. Bachmann was no hero. The boy was undoubtedly prompted by his mother to make a point that his mother just happened to film perfectly on her phone. If Bachmann uses this incident to rally her biased support, then that is her problem. This is an unfortunate event of a biased mother using her kid to make a statement, and, if it is what it is, Bachmann is using this, after the fact, as a tool to gain support, then she is also as bad as the kid's mother.
Protip: Don't use your children to make our message for you.
It seemed like the kid was coached to me. But I really hope it turns out he wasnt.
