Bachmann worries women's museum honoring her will become "shrine to abortion" [VIDEO]

Bachmann speaks during yesterday's hearing.
A website for the proposed National Women's History Museum devotes a page to honoring Michele Bachmann for being a great mother. Nonetheless, yesterday Bachmann was one of just 33 representatives to vote against a bill that would do nothing more than create a bipartisan commission to study the possible construction of a women's museum on the National Mall in D.C. (383 representatives voted in favor.)

"As it's currently written, the legislation lacks the necessary safeguards to ensure that the proposed museum will not become an ideological shrine to abortion that will eventually receive federal funding and a prominent spot on the National Mall," Bachmann said on the House floor.

In making her case, Bachmann cited the fact that the same website that honors her also honors Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger.

"She's an abortion trailblazer and she is the founder of Planned Parenthood, which this body has sought to defund," Bachmann said. "I find Margaret Sanger's views highly offensive and yet she is featured over and over again as a women to extoll on this website and ultimately in this museum."

Long story short, unless the museum is committed to honoring God-fearing, all-American conservative women like her and nobody else, Bachmann won't support the creation of a committee to merely talk about it, let alone an actual museum.

"I rise today in opposition to this bill because I believe ultimately this museum that will be built on the National Mall, on federal land, will enshrine the radical feminist movement that stands against the pro-life movement the pro-family movement and the pro-traditional marriage movement," Bachmann said.

Well, if she says, 'I don't want this." When they don't choose to honor her an an honorable leader, she won't have to get so upset! Dream on, crazy person!

Oh no Ms. Bachmann, your space is quite secure in the 'setting women back exhibit'.

Funny thing is that I came from a republican, pro-eugenic family so the only thing this thread proves to me is that the two-party, left-right divide and conquer technique works.

The debate was actually over before that. You are the one defending someone who has actually harmed and intends to continue to harm others. Ridiculous. Michelle Bachgaziiiii!

If you defend people who wish others harm, the debate was really over at that point.

How is saying several and meaning 2 a valid counterpoint? I have made no attempt to stifle or control your opinion. This whole time you have been attacking my opinion. I see you are avoiding my last question. How convenient. Now you're using all of the typical tactics of deflection, classic RWNJ. That's how I know this is over. Anyway, have a blessed day Cinco or whoever you are today. : x

Carrie, you calling me out on my generic original post about the lack of tolerance toward Michele Bachmann was your attempt to stifffle and control my opinion, which I will tolerate, but not without expressing a counterpoint and explanation of how I arrived at my point of view.

Carrie Graf
Carrie Graf

Well 2 does not equal several so it was exaggerated. I never condoned those 2 people or others who wish harm to come to MB. I simply stated, more than once, that bigotry should not be tolerated. I am tolerant of MBs beliefs but I will not tolerate her trying to control and oppress others. Will you?

Yankee Doodle Pablo
Yankee Doodle Pablo

Not exaggerated in the least. So you make excuses for the people who want to see harm come to Ms. Bachmann? Isn't to wish someone dead the worst form of hate and bigotry? To not stand up against bigotry and hate is agreeing with it by proxy. That is what you are trying tell me and by making excuses for inexcusable comments puts you in direct conflict with your own platitude.

Carrie Graf
Carrie Graf

I think the world would be a better place without her but I am not calling for her death. When you made your first comment about tolerance no one had mentioned anything about her death and since then one person said something about, when can she die and another wants her drowned. So your statement about several posters calling for her death is quite exaggerated.

Yankee Doodle Pablo
Yankee Doodle Pablo

So you agree with several of the posters who called for Michele Bachmann's death?

Carrie Graf

That was not condescension, that was the truth. Simply put (again), everyone is free to have their beliefs but to impose them on others or to use them as an excuse to violate or with hold other's civil rights is wrong and that does not need to be tolerated.

Yankee Doodle Pablo

No. I understand flawed logic when I see it. Any amount of condescending remarks on your part does nothing to strengthen your position. Nice try though.

Nope, you're still not getting it. It's a pretty difficult concept to grasp for some so don't feel bad.

To bad Michele is so brainwashed by her own stupidity....... she really needs to quit listening to herself!

So it's alright and justified from your own point of view, but not any other. Gotcha.

It's about a women's history museum. Margret Sanger and Planned Parenthood have had a huge influence on recent women's history. That's why she would be included in the museum of women's history. Get it? It doesn't matter what anyone thinks about her views, she was an influence.

Carrie Graf
Carrie Graf

I am well aware of her views. How do they apply to forming a bipartisan committee to discuss a possible museum of women's history? I didn't understand it when MB brought it up and I don't understand why you are. The museum content has not been discussed or decided upon, at all. That's what this committee would be doing. And it's a HISTORY museum. It will tell the history of women, it is not a hall of fame. In order to represent history accurately you have to include all influences, not just the ones you like or agree with.

No, Cinco. "Reverse criticism is a handy tool for conservatives to utilize when they want bigotry to be an acceptable part of an ever-growing enlightened society, as though they want us to turn our gaze from attacks from the right against our basic freedoms, such as the freedom to marry whom you love. However, like all the ignorant bias that has been used to persecute minorities in the past, they must be thrown out like dirty dishwater and not allowed to stand, for to do so would be acceptance of such bigotry." -Fidlerton

Jason, take two Advil and call me after the election. Your favorite party is going to get rolled over and gutted like a codfish. People are finally removing their heads from their asses and that will be apparent in the next election.

I am overwhelmed by the displays of "Minnesota Nice" that come out whenever there is a post about Michele Bachman, conservatives, Republicans, or anything that doesn't fit right into the liberal party line. It's unfortunate we can't express ourselves without delving into vitriol and savagery and wishing death upon a person for, ironically, not supporting abortion because she sees it as death of a child.

Yup, she was an influence.  An influence in the murder of millions of people.
