Michelle Bachman and a Gay robot (video)

The gay robot who confronted Michele Bachmann in Iowa City is the same man who heckled Bill Clinton back in 2007.


GOP primary candidate Michele Bachmann had to get police to calm a rally in met Iowa City on Thursday when a “gay robot” with a megaphone appeared and accused her of being both "a homophobe and a robophobe."
  • (Photo: RoboProf Video Still)<br>The gay robot who confronted Michele Bachmann in Iowa City is the same man who heckled Bill Clinton back in 2007.
  The Republican presidential hopeful was at a dinner at Hamburg Inn No. 2, a popular stopping point on the campaign trail, when the demonstrator who called himself “RoboProf” first showed up




Bachmann was traveling through the popular diner shaking hands and taking pictures, and the restaurant was packed with over 100 people, both supporters and protesters.
The candidate dealt with the situation when Occupy Iowa City demonstrators showed up, but when a gay robot appeared, somebody called the cops.
Occupy Iowa City Launches Attack
A group of demonstrators representing the Occupy Iowa City branch of the OWS movement showed began the backlash against Michele Bachmann. 
Shouting to combat the noise in the Hamburg Inn diner and to combat the music campaign staffers blared through stereos, the demonstrators fought against supporters yelling words of encouragement to the conservative.
"Michele Bachmann will fix the economy by laying off workers and cutting their pay,” the protestors shouted. “Michele Bachmann fights proudly for marriage unless the couple happens to be gay.”
About 15 people scattered throughout the restaurant were part of the initial protest.
“You're not wanted here,” they screamed. “You're not wanted here so go, just go."
“RoboProf” Arrives
Occupy demonstrators were not an unexpected site at the Bachmann rally. Iowa City is a liberal bastion, and many of Michele Bachmann’s goals are acknowledged on both sides to be antithetical to the OWS movement.
In fact, only Rick Santorum and Rick Perry have visited Hamburg Inn this caucus season, despite the diner reaching out to all candidates, precisely because the Democratic demographic makes demonstrations against the candidate almost a certainty.
But there was one protestor whose presence wasn’t expected, and whose appearance in the raucous atmosphere helped prompt a call to the local police to intervene.
As Bachmann got off her campaign bus to head into Hamburg Inn No. 2, a man in a robot suit suddenly appeared, brandishing a microphone and demanding answers. Calling himself “RoboProf,” he accused the candidate of both human and robot discrimination.
"Not only are you a homophobe, you are a robophobe!" the self-professed gay robot chanted.
The demonstrator was booed by Bachmann supporters and asked to leave Hamburg Inn No. 2 almost immediately, “Roboprof” declined.
“I am a gay robot,” the demonstrator pressed on. “I oppose Bachmann’s position on gays, whether they are human or robot.”
Police Called to Iowa City Diner
Eventually, police were called to the restaurant after Bachmann supporters tried to drown OWS demonstrators out with Christmas music and the gay robot made his final statement to the candidate.
Four officers arrived toward the end of Bachmann’s visit to help keep the peace, though no arrests were reported.
Who is Gay Robot “RoboProf”?
The man dressed in the silver robot costume declined to give his name at the Bachmann rally. "I was programmed to do this," he said.
He did, however, admit to being the same robot who heckled former president Bill Clinton at the University of Iowa in 2007.
According to Patch, the “RoboProf” of 2007 was eventually revealed to be Prof. Kembrew McLeod, a communications professor at the University of Iowa.
Presuming that there’s not an army of gay robots operating under one collective identity (though that scenario would certainly be Bachmann’s nightmare), it’s likely that Professor McLeof was the man behind the robot mask.
Watch Gay Robot Hassle Michele Bachmann
When it comes to embarrassing Michele Bachmann at a campaign rally, there’s probably no one who can top Elijah, the little boy in South Carolina who told her, “My mommy’s gay and she doesn’t need fixing.”
But as Bachmann’s campaign continues to flounder in the days before the Iowa caucuses, gay robot “RoboProf” is sure trying to make his mark.

Michelle Bachmann leaves pumpkin farm event when Gay Demonstrators Show Up


GRINNELL, Iowa CBS - Rep. Michele Bachmann cut short a visit to a pumpkin farm here Tuesday evening after a group of placard-carrying college students appeared poised to disrupt the campaign event. Local police were called, but Bachmann's presidential campaign staff helped her avoid a confrontation with the roughly 60 students from Grinnell College, a private institution known for its liberal bent.
The Minnesota Republican was attending a fundraiser with members of the Family Leader, a faith-based group associated with Focus on the Family. She was scheduled to speak in a barn on a privately owned pumpkin farm when the group of students arrived. They reported hearing of the event from an email from the Campus Democrats, as well as through Facebook and other social media.
The students joined the crowd in the barn waiting for Bachmann to speak, while the lawmaker's staff huddled, apparently concerned about the protestors, who carried signs saying, "Have my gaybies" and "My body, my choice" and "Female Gay Student 99%, where's my future?" The police arrived and cordoned off an area outside the barn where the Grinnell students were made to stand.
An hour and a half after the event was scheduled to begin, Bachmann came out of the nearby house, took a quick tour of the farm, fed some goats and fielded a couple questions from reporters about why her speech was canceled. She said the event was supposed to be private and that she wanted to be able to talk with the people who had paid to be part of the $25-a-head fundraiser.
Bachmann then walked to a van, waving to the students as some of them yelled to her. Some of the students said afterward that they were disappointed not to get a chance to hear her speak, and that they were not planning to disrupt the event. Student Jillian Johnson said, "Grinnell is known for having peaceful, politically active, liberal-leaning students. I don't understand what she was scared of."

10 Of The Craziest Things Michele Bachmann Has Ever Said


 By blogger Elon Green, a freelance writer living in Brooklyn.
Earlier this week, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN)announced she had filed the papers to run for President. It’s not a frivolous pursuit: She is extremely well liked by the Republican base and is an unusually effective fundraiser, taking in more dollars in the last election cycle she than any of her Congressional colleagues.
Still, Bachmann’s candidacy is not without potential landmines. Over the last decade, she has taken positions that are dangerous, stemming from her radical ideology. To Bachmann’s credit, she is aware of this, lamenting to Glenn Beck, “I have experienced that throughout my political career, being labeled a kook.”
ThinkProgress has assembled 10 of the nuttiest things Bachmann has ever said:
(1) BACHMANN WARNED ‘THE LION KING’ WAS GAY PROPAGANDA: At the November 2004 EdWatch National Education Conference, Bachmannsaid the “normalization” of homosexuality would lead to “desensitization”: “Very effective way to do this with a bunch of second graders, is take a picture of ‘The Lion King’ for instance, and a teacher might say, ‘Do you know that the music for this movie was written by a gay man?’ The message is: I’m better at what I do, because I’m gay.”
(2) BACHMANN CLAIMED ABOLISHING THE MINIMUM WAGE WOULD CREATE JOBS: While testifying in front of the Minnesota Senate in 2005, Bachmann said, “Literally, if we took away the minimum wage — if conceivably it was gone — we could potentially virtually wipe out unemployment completely because we would be able to offer jobs at whatever level.” This isn’t remotely true. Even simply reducing the minimum wage would, as Paul Krugman noted, “at best do nothing for employment; more likely it would actually be contractionary.”
(3) BACHMANN CLAIMED THAT SCIENTISTS ARE SUPPORTERS OF INTELLIGENT DESIGN: During a 2006 debate, Bachmann said, “There are hundreds and hundreds of scientists, many of them holding Nobel Prizes, who believe in intelligent design.” This was, and is, not true.
(4) BACHMANN CLAIMED TERRI SCHIAVO WAS ‘HEALTHY’: Not long after Terri Schiavo died, Bachmann said she would have voted for thePalm Sunday Compromise because Schiavo “was healthy. She had brain damage — there was brain damage, there was no question. But from a health point of view, she was not terminally ill.” An autopsy found that Schiavo had suffered irreversible brain damage and her brain, said the medical examiner, was “profoundly atrophied.”
(5) BACHMANN LIKENED VISITING IRAQ TO VISITING MALL OF AMERICA: In 2007, Bachmann returned from a junket to Iraq and told her colleagues, “[T]here’s a commonality with the Mall of America, in that it’s on that proportion. There’s marble everywhere. The other thing I remarked about was there is water everywhere.” As ThinkProgress documented at the time, the comparison was preposterous.
(6) BACHMANN CLAIMED THAT CARBON DIOXIDE IS ‘HARMLESS’: In 2008, a Stanford scientist revealed “direct links” between increased levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and “increases in human mortality” — globally, he found that as many as “20,000 air-pollution-related deaths per year per degree Celsius may be due to this greenhouse gas.” The next year, Bachmann, who is not a scientist, said that “carbon dioxide is portrayed as harmful. But there isn’t even one study that can be produced that shows that carbon dioxide is a harmful gas.”
(7) BACHMANN CALLED FOR A CONGRESSIONAL WITCH HUNT: Pivoting off the news of Barack Obama’s alleged relationship to former Weather Underground member William Ayers, and his former pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Bachmann accused the candidate of having “anti-American views.” She then suggested that Congressional liberals — including Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid — ought to be subject to “an exposé” by the media because of their views. “I think people would love to see like that,” she told a stunned Chris Matthews.
(8) BACHMANN SUGGESTED GAY SINGER SHOULD REPENT AFTER GETTING CANCER: Bachmann saw Melissa Etheridge’s cancer as a teachable moment: “Unfortunately she is now suffering from breast cancer, so keep her in your prayers,” she said in November 2004. “This may be an opportunity for her now to be open to some spiritual things, now that she is suffering with that physical disease. She is a lesbian.”
(9) BACHMANN BOASTED ABOUT BREAKING THE LAW: In advance of the 2010 national Census, Bachmann told The Washington Times that she would break the law by not completing the forms. “I know for my family, the only question we will be answering is how many people are in our home,” she said. “We won’t be answering any informationbeyond that, because the Constitution doesn’t require any information beyond that.”
(10) BACHMANN CLAIMED THAT GLENN BECK COULD SOLVE THE DEBT CRISIS: During a February trip to South Carolina, Bachmann told a South Carolina audience, “I think if we give Glenn Beck the numbers, he can solve this [the national debt].”

Michele "Pray The Gay Away"Bachmann Wants to Reinstate DON'T ASK DON'T TELL



Bachmann Plans to
Fix Gays in the Military
The following statement about Congresswoman Michele Bachmann's stated intent to reinstate the military's ban against gay and lesbian troops can be attributed to Aaron Belkin, director of the Palm Center:
"Congresswoman Bachmann has a consistent approach to fixing the problem of gay people, first with so-called 'reparative therapy' and now with the reinstatement of the military's ban on openly gay service.

She has stated that as President, she would turn back the clock to prevent gay and lesbian troops from serving honestly,ignoring the conclusions of senior military leaders, the Pentagon Working Group and foreign forces, all of whom find inclusive policy to be no big deal. Under Representative Bachmann's proposal,  the U.S. Armed Forces would become the first nation in the world to undo the repeal of a gay ban."

Marcus Bachman Aware of Everything Gay, Does Not Know What Silver Fox' Means



The New Yorker profiles Michele Bachmann this week, and in the extensive piece, her husband Marcus makes it clear he's aware that some people, including Jon Stewart, think he's gay.
Marcus's sexuality has come under scrutiny in part because he reportedly practices controversial "pray the gay away" therapy at his Christian counseling clinic. Recordings of Mr. Bachmann calling gay people "barbarians who need to be disciplined" have surfaced, and last month activists responded by "glitter bombing" Marcus Bachmann's clinic.
With the attention on whether his extreme antigay sentiment betrays his closeted homosexuality, Marcus is apparently concerned about appearing gay. In the New Yorkerstory he worries that the moniker "silver fox" might be "something gay." Ryan Lizza writes in his article:
Marcus Bachmann plopped down on the seat next to me, in the back of the plane. He pointed at my laptop and asked if he could take a look. "All I want to know is what they’re saying about me," he said. "Newsweek came up with the word 'silver fox.' Tell me what 'silver fox' means."
"Do you want me to tell you honestly?" I asked.
"Oh, don’t tell me it’s something gay!" he said. "Because I’ve been called that before."
Marcus was reassured when he found out it had to do with the color of his hair, and said the nickname was "better than Porky Pig." Do you think Marcus can pray away the gay rumors, or will the public and press keep speculating on his sexuality so long as his wife is a frontrunner for president?
