Accuracy in Media

After Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) concluded her remarks Saturday at the RightOnline conference in Minneapolis, gay rights activist Rachel E.B. Lang tried, but largely failed, in an attempt to spray a bottle of glitter on Bachmann.

Lang’s complaint about Bachmann was that she supported anti-gay extremists. Lang shouted at Bachmann during her attack that “you can run but you can’t hide,” as Bachmann left the stage.

In another video about the incident being circulated on YouTube, viewers are encouraged to join the glitterati and fight back against what they perceive as anti-LGBT extremism, meaning that Bachmann isn’t the only target.

Jimmy LaSalvia of GOProud said in the RightOnline blogger lounge that he was thinking of wearing glitter to his organization’s reception that evening just to show how silly the whole effort is.
