Michele Bachmann waves bag of gay-unfriendly Chick-fil-A [VIDEO]

We would've been more convinced had she been filmed actually eating a chicken sandwich.

On "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day," Michele Bachmann wanted to make sure she went on the record supporting the embattled fast food restaurant.

She released a video of her waving a bag of food from the restaurant while saying, "We are standing with the Cathys who stand with the family." Dan Cathy is the longtime president of the wildly successful chicken sandwich joint, which has three locations in Minnesota and is planning new ones in Maple Grove and Coon Rapids.

Cathy, of course, finds himself under fire for making controversial anti-gay marriage remarks. During a radio appearance in June, he said, "I think we are inviting God's judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say, 'We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage.' I pray God's mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about."

Then, last month, he characterized his restaurants as "very much supportive of the family -- the biblical definition of the family unit... We know that it might not be popular with everyone, but thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles."

Cathy's comments were denounced by officials in gay-friendly cities like Chicago and San Francisco, with a Chicago alderman saying he'll do whatever he can to block Chick-fil-A from adding new locations in the city. Students in Mankato are circulating a petition demanding that school officials remove the campus Chick-fil-A from Minnesota State University. A "Customer Appreciation Day" counter-protest happened on August 1, and the company reported "unprecedented" sales that day.

At least one of those sales came courtesy of Bachmann, whose hobbies include hiding in bushes during gay rights rallies. Without further ado, here's her pro-Chick-fil-A proclamation:



Chick-fil-A: Standing with the family, at least until we get so fat we can't stand anymore.

Isn't it somewhat gay of her to eat a "CHICK"  Fil-A?

I bet 'someone' in her household could deep-throat a chicken-strip with out much coaching. Real gay men like me eat 'meat'.

ANTI GAY opinions and behaviors are not another point of view that SHOULD BE TOLERATED you fucking idiots. the fact that you can't see that scares me more than Michele Bachmann or Sarah Palin. pathetic, the lot of you.

Paul and Jason - I'm not seeing a frenzy here. Just recognition of a proud bigot. They exist. Bigots vote for other bigots. That's been true for a long time. Some people work to make the world a better place and some work to keep it shitty. Gnats.

Seriously who gives a shit! You people are ridiculous, you're so "tolerant" of YOUR own views, and YOUR views only. You're clowns. Grow up. So someone has a different view than you, whoopidy doo. don't cry about it. I have plenty of gay friends. They don't huff and puff if someone doesn't like the fact that they're gay. They just say "oh well, that's their deal". That's tolerance, you could learn a thing or 10 from them.

Republican deep thinking:

 

First lady encourages children to eat better?   That's socialism.

 

Fat former governor encourages people to eat fried chicken cause it shows how much you hate gay people?   That's a hero.

What I love best about Michele Bachmann is her ability to endlessly annoy snot-nosed liberals.

Savage Love article says the term "pegging" should be replaced with "Chick-fill-A". Hilarious! Chick Fill A is the new Santorum!

Maybe if she stopped thinking about gay sex for like 10 seconds she could form a coherent sentence.

She needs to retire and go away, just like Sara Palin. I'm tired of these fear mongering, hate promoting politicians.

I think Jon Stewart said it best when he said last night "only in America would gay hating Americans stand in line for hours to take a bite out of a big juicy piece of cock"
