    8 Year old catches Bachmann off guard...



    Yah know, alot of you who know me might be surprised to hear this, but I find this absolutely disgusting.

    Look it's one thing if you as an adult wanna go up to Bachmann and say, yah know what? I don't need fixing, but with the fact someone was filming it shows me there was prior intent to get the kid to go up to Bachmann to say it.

    Now I could be incorrect and the kid might have genuinely wanted to say that to Bachmann, I don't know, but it just seemed like the parents thought it'd be funny.

    I dunno I wouldn't drag my kids into any political fluff like this.

    I think it takes a brave kid to face down the monster of our times.

    Studies have shown that children of gay couples are better equipped in terms of having thick skins and dealing with the ugliness in our world. They have above average confidence and emotional maturity.

    Bachmann, the great 'mother' of so many foster children (and I'm sure she thinks she loves children) had to come face to face with a family she is doing harm to. Her anti-gay, homophobic rhetoric fuels those that would hurt this family, directly and indirectly.

    Bachmann and her husband are a watered-down Fred Phelps. They do great harm and don't realize it.

    Thanks to this brave boy, she now has to put a face on the innocent children of gay couples that she puts in harm's way through her promotion of bigotry.

    The boy is stronger because of this.

    using a child that has no concept of that of which he speaks to get a "gotcha" moment on a politician is really really bad form.

    it's not her gayness that need fixing.... it's her parenting that needs fixing.

    He's aware that there are people on TV who say ugly untrue things about his family.

    He just confronted one of them.

    Not a gotcha moment. A picture all social-cons should have burned into their brain. Children of gay couples are hurt by your bigotry.


    it's her parenting that needs fixing.
    She's teaching her son to be strong and confront bullies.

    Let's ask the grown up children of gay couples what they think...

    8,000 likes, 3,000 dislikes...

    I guess I'm not alone in thinking the only bad parent in the video is Bachmann.

    this child knows nothing about that of which he speaks... he was not divulging his own thoughts ( he's too young to have developed such thoughts)... he was reciting what his mother told him to say to bachman.
    the mother should have told bachman directly, and not used her child.

    that you support using children in this fashion is telling.


    and really.... what bigotry of mine are you speaking of that hurts children of gay couples?.. do tell...

    ...Could have sworn this video started another thread awhile ago....Too lazy to look it up though.

    But in anycase I like the kid. No one here knows if the child was coached or not. They just assume that he is because a kid that young "can't possibly" think on these terms. I've seen lots of kids with exceptional thinking ability before, seen even more via TV, youtube etc etc. Yet when it comes to something like this...well its "just not possible". This also probably why Bachmann will probably dismiss what happened.

    But whether you agree with the video or not, the fact is, hazlnut is correct in his assessment.
