Former Trump adviser and Republican Congresswoman Michele Bachmann has claimed that gay people are working alongside Islamist terrorists and the Black Lives Matter movement to undermine American values.
Mrs Bachmann served as a member of the US House of Representatives from 2007 until 2015, gaining a reputation as one of the most notorious anti-LGBT voices in Congress.
Since leaving office, Bachmann,who served on Donald Trump’s Evangelical Advisory Board during the election, has grown steadily more extreme and disturbing in her public statements.
This week, in an interview with WorldNetDaily after millions took part in Women’s March protests across the US, Bachmann claimed gays, black activists and Islamists have decided to “work together” against the new President.
She said: “People understand Islam abhors homosexuality, yet they often join forces in protests with gay activists.
“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. 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.”
Ms Bachmann claimed in 2014: “I think [gays] want to abolish age of consent laws, which means we will do away with statutory rape laws so that adults would be able to freely prey on little children sexually. That’s the deviance that we’re seeing embraced in our culture today.”
A 2011 investigation found a religious counselling centre owned by Ms Bachmann attempts gay ‘cure’ therapy and aims to repress “homosexual urges”. Her husband, Marcus Bachmann, ran the service.
She has also claimed that God would destroy America because of the “sin-sick” culture of same-sex marriage.
