Bachmann Pledges to Ban Porn But Did She Expose 23 Minors to Pedophile?

Michele Bachmann Exposes 23 Minors to Possible Pedophile?

Let me state at the outset that everything you will read after this sentence is based on logic, but only as logic applies to someone with Michele Bachmann’s belief system; if Bachmann really believes what she claims to believe, then her conduct in exposing 23 minors to whatever risks her home might have posed to those minors raises many uncomfortable questions ...

The Bachmanns indict themselves.

from beeryblog:

Let me recap the logical underpinnings of this post:

* According to Michele Bachmann, homosexuals are indistinguishable from pedophiles and, in fact, are pedophiles.
* According to Michele Bachmann, children should not be exposed to homosexuals because children are homosexuals’ targets.
* People who are obsessed with homosexuality and ‘curing’ homosexuality are almost always closeted homosexuals themselves; were they not, there could be no reason for any passionate obsession with homosexuality.
* Because religious closeted homosexuals will also be self-loathing homosexuals, they will lash out and externalize their self-loathing as aggressive and militant hostility toward OPENLY gay people, who represent a world that self-loathing closeted homosexuals cannot ever enjoy because of their own dogmatic self-flagellation.
* Michele Bachmann’s husband is obsessed with homosexuality and ‘curing’ homosexuality and lashes out with aggressive and militant hostility against openly gay people.
* Michele Bachmann’s husband is therefore likely a self-loathing, closeted homosexual.
* Michele Bachmann has been married to a man who is likely a closeted, self-loathing homosexual for 33 years. Unless she is an idiot, she must at least have suspected it, especially given that her husband is peculiarly effeminate and tends to comport himself like the stereotypical aging Catholic priest.
* Michele Bachmann nonetheless exposed TWENTY THREE MINORS to a man she must have at least suspected of being homosexual, which, under her belief system, also rendered her husband a possible pedophile.
* Michele Bachmann must explain her conduct in this regard.


According to that stellar exercise in logic and critical thinking DU must be chuck full of

closeted self loathing Republicans
self loathing extremist christian fundamentalists


self loathing sexual preditors

Those are the groups they don't agree with and "hate", right?

DUers MUST explain their conduct in this regard!!!1111!!!!!11!

14. Did you bother to read the link?

It is about Bachman's self-contradictory stance on homosexuality and pedophilia.

YOU are not asked to make that connection - BACHMAN makes that connection.

Then it makes a fairly strong case for hubby Bachman to be a deeply closeted homosexual - which SHE equates with being a pedophile - and asks, Why have they fostered so many, many children if homosexual hubby (who 'cures' homosexuality) is a pedophile (which is incurable).

Remember, these are HER stances, based on HER statements - not those of the article's author.That's some twister "logic" there.

21. You don't understand what the issue is.

It is not homosexuality. It is not pedophilia. It is the hypocrisy inherent in Bachman's world view.

From the single, well supported premise that the most virulent anti-gays are masking their own self-loathed inclinations, it is posited that hubby is gay.

SHE believes that there is no difference between gays and pedophiles - she has said as much. She believes that gays can be cured - that's hubby's con-job. She believes that pedophiles CANNOT be cured - she has said as much.

Hubby = gay (cured) = pedophile (uncured) = risk to her children, natural and fostered.

So, by her world view she must believe that hubby MUST be a threat to children.

At the same time, she obviously does NOT believe he is a threat to children, or she would not be bringing children into his house.

Or, she knows he is a threat, and doesn't care if the children are at risk.

Or, she knows that homosexuality does NOT = pedophilia, and she is an obvious liar.

Or, she really believes that homosexuality = pedophilia, and she is guilty of child abuse.

Or, she is a 'good christian woman' who defers to her husband, so her thought about it don't matter - nevermind that she can't refrain from making those thoughts a cornerstone of her political rhetoric.

The levels of hypocrisy are staggering - and NONE if it requires anyone else to accept her warped, bizarre world view. Only to recognize what HER world view is.

It's all built on the premise that if you think gays can be "cured" it must mean that you are a self loathing homosexual.

There is legitimate criticism of religious conservatives' method of equating homosexuality with pedophilia. This ain't it.

Then does that mean if you are an atheist who thinks Christians can be persuaded to drop their faith by exposure to atheists and atheism, that YOU are secretly a self-loathing but firmly convicted believer?

This a strange theory that pops every now and again; its called Dinosaurs On Venus.

You can't see the surface of Venus, why? Clouds.

What makes clouds? Water vapor.

What has a lot of water vapor? Swamps.

What lives in Swamps? Dinosaurs.

This how a Moonbats gets to point A to crossroad Q; in other words creat the answer you want to hear instead of finding out the truth because it might be something you don't want to hear.

Another day at DU :rolleyes:

While not all homosexuals are pedophiles, a good many pedophiles are homosexual. Most of their victims are young boys.

The vast majority of gays are not pedophiles. Homosexuality is not a psychological disorder. Considering that most sexual abuse victims are female and most perps are male, well, gender-based sexual orientation is not the issue that defines a pedophile. F@#$ing children or wanting to f@#$ children is the defining issue.
