Michele Bachmann Responds To Anti-Bullying Petition With A Whole Lot Of NOTHING!

Two weeks ago, Tammy Aaberg, the mother of a gay teenager who committed suicide last year presented Michele Bachmann Crazy Overdives office with a petition signed by over 140,000  people targeting Bachmann on the anti-LGBT bullying incidents and suicides that have occurred in the Anoka-Hennepin School District which lie in her congressional district.

Yesterday Michele Bachmann (Or someone in her office) finally replied.  With a whole lot of hot air and BULLSHIT.

Thank you for taking the time to express your concerns about anti-gay bullying and harassment via the CREDO Action petition. As your Representative for the 6th district of Minnesota, your views are very important to me and I appreciate hearing from you.

Unquestionably, bullying is wrong. I agree that no student should feel belittled or threatened by peers at school. All human lives have undeniable value, and I urge parents, teachers, and students alike to champion this fact in our community and to address instances of bullying promptly and firmly when they occur.

As one of the members of the U.S. House of Representatives representing the Anoka-Hennepin School District, I am very aware and concerned about the cases of bullying and suicides that have occurred there. In response, my office has been in communication with both school officials and with individuals who have lost a loved one to suicide.

We all desire to see bullying brought to an end and the best interests of students served in our schools. Again, thank you for your commitment on this matter. I assure you I will continue to be a listening ear for any constituent wishing to express his or her view on this or any other issue.

So she, or someone in her office sent a  non-response response.  How ….inhuman of her.

And it’s highly doubtful that she has been “in communication” as she claims. Bachmann has been questioned about this many many times on the campaign trail, and she continues to say that the harrasment and deaths of our children is not a federal issue.
