Barbarian Flash Mob Dances in Front of Marcus Bachmann's Clinic

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!

Hat tip to the Minnesota Independent. (Click here if you're having trouble viewing the video.)

  1. Very nice. Of course the RRRWers will be whining about how persecuted they are, since free speech only applies to them.

  2. Buffy -- Yeah. I guess their persecution of others doesn't count.

  3. Oh this is terrific Ahab. So glad you reported on it. I love it! So well deserved too!

  4. Sherry -- Wasn't it great? I loved it too.

  5. Me voici -- It looks like a lot of fun.
