“How do you think that the president can balance all the delicate foreign policy issues but take a decisive stand on human rights because so many people consider President Obama to be the first gay president?”

“I’ll say it, honestly, there’s a lot of white shame today… And while we look at lady justice and she’s supposed to be blind, it’s like, what are we saying about the life of this kid being disposable? And there’s this ‘otherness’ factor going on. He was an ‘other’ and he was suspicious and he’s walking while black and he’s an other. And meanwhile, if you’re an other out there, be worried. And this means not just black. If you’re LGBT, if you’re Hispanic, if you’re different, it’s an otherness factor. And there’s a privilege that goes into a certain mindset in this country, and if you’re different, then you’re bad.”

“The great thing that I love about our country is that though we were founded on freedom of religion, most important and most overlooked is that we were founded on freedom from religion.”

“But you will replace [Obama] with a person [Michele Bachmann] that would extinguish you. You’re replacing him with a person that doesn’t believe that that you have a right in this country to get married, that believes you don’t even have a right in this country to be gay because she co-owns a clinic that will convert you.”
