On August 25th, a flash mob of "barbarians" descended on Marcus Bachmann's Christian counseling clinic in Lake Elmo, Minnesota to protest his homophobic comments and reported use of so-called "reparative therapy." In this hilarious flash mob dance set to Lady Gaga's "Born This Way," an actor playing Marcus Bachmann berates the group, only to receive a shower of glitter. At the end of the performance, the dancers shout "one of us!", with a special message for Marcus!
