Michelle Bachman got an ear full from 8 year-old Elijah, just watch:
It’s kind of hard to hear but apparently Elijah said that his Mom was gay and that she didn’t need fixing. The look on Michelle’s face is PRICELESS!
**UPDATE** Here’s an update from the person that actually took the video – Jennifer was kind enough to stop by and share the details:
I was the person that recorded this; the mom uploaded.
Sexuality is only political because ignorant people have made it so. To some people, it’s a political stance– to his mom, and him, it’s a part of his life. He loves his mom and her partner.
Back to the story– I was standing in line with Elijah and his mom. His mom was going to say something to her, but she got nervous and told me she wanted to leave. We were about to step out of the line but Elijah cried out, “Nooo!” He grabbed onto her coat and pulled her back in the line, saying he wanted to talk to her.
When we got up to Michele, he got a little stage fright. His mom just didn’t want him to not say it because he was afraid, because she knew he would regret it if he didn’t. I used to do ballet as a child, and before performances, I’d want to no do it– my mom pushed me to perform. Afterwards, I’d run to her and tell her how happy I was. How is this any different? If we were shown a video of a child before a school play, or a recital, being pushed to perform and not give into stage fright, would we get the same reaction? My gut says no.
