Michele Bachmann Is Terrified of Intersectionality

Michele Bachmann Is Terrified of Intersectionality

Michele Bachmann believes gay people are working with members of other vulnerable communities in order cause "liberties to fall."

The former congresswoman, in an interview with conservative website WorldNetDaily, aired her Bizarro World-views on intersectionality, in order explain the diversity of groups represented at last weekend's Women's March on Washington.

“People understand Islam abhors homosexuality, yet they often join forces in protests with gay activists,” Bachmann said. “The answer is simple, Black Lives Matters, the gay agenda, as well as Islamic supremacism, all seek domination over American freedoms.”

“They cannot reach their aims separately, but they can realize the fall of individual liberties if they work together," she added. "Once liberties fall, the groups break with each other in a race to impose their particular views on the American populace."

“Causing liberties to fall is a long-term project, and they will use whatever allies they can get to realize that phase of their goals," she continued.

In a fashion, Bachmann is partly correct. The fight for civil liberties requires coordination and alliances between different communities. Chants like "We are all in this together" at the Women's March illustrate this strength in numbers.

Bachmann, a past adviser to Donald Trump on evangelical issues, did not clarify which "individual liberties" were being threatened. Yet considering her record of denouncing marriage equality and LGBT rights, Bachmann is likely citing to an antigay understanding of "family values" or "religious freedom."

WND also spoke with blogger Cheri Berens, who advanced a right-wing conspiracy theory that the Women's March was supported by terrorists. 

“They want American women to have abortions," Berens said. "They want the non-Muslim population to be stagnant while the their Muslim population grows. Numbers mean power."
