What did I just watch..
I like how she reads it like its all totally legit too.
What the fuck?
Also, the guys facial expressions in the background were priceless. I even think the old lady sitting next to him thought this lady was bat-shit crazy.
Yep, that old lady did think she was bat-shit crazy.
Let's be honest, the woman should have never been up there. Shame on her brother for allowing her to get into that situation.
SHE HAS A FEW GOOD POINTS. :|
...wtf did I just watch?
The dude in the first video could barely keep it together.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, THE FUCK.
Presentation is everything. Put her in a priests robes, stand her at the head of a church and watch the congregation just nod their heads through her speech. Although she's clearly suffering from a mental disorder many of the ideas she brought up are perfectly in step with conservative christian views.
That poor woman...
I hope people don't judge her on this video, she is clearly not of sound mind.
The amount of truth in this terrifies me. :/
Sad part is that I've seen it happen with my own two eyes, and in every church I have ever attended...
What the actual fuck. I didn't think this shit existed anymore, not at this level of ignorance. This woman has to be mentally challenged. It's the only explanation.
In democracy people have the right to express their views however much we disagree with them and even if they have mental problems. The problem is when views that are unfounded and illogical gain popularity and may cause prosecution to a certain part of the population.
Too bad for the old lady, even though her paranoia is founded in some beliefs of hers exaggerated. As other people said the sad part is that you may hear sane people having these kinds of beliefs.
You know, I still partially agree with you said but I spent the last day digesting this more.
She gets some leeway for the fact she's clearly documented as having a mental defect, however... that doesn't mean that's a free pass. There's enough competent stringing together of thoughts based on observations and research, she was capable of digesting the subject matter of the legislation being discussed and finding her way to this public forum (as well as waiting, recognizing when she was being called and responding). She's not a total vegetable, there's nuance to her condition and should be handled as such.
It raises an interesting question, however. Where do we draw the line on holding our tongue about what people say/do because of their diagnosed mental condition?
Whitney houston? I'm pretty sure she was a woman, and her boyfriend used to beat her! whats that got to do with LGBT?
Having an uncle that is schizophrenic, I've heard him make some pretty ridiculous claims like he taught Chuck Yeager to fly while my uncle was still six years old. It angers me, but yeah, I have to give her leeway. They really don't know what they are saying, and in this case, it has the potential to be harmful to others. Shame on her brother indeed. But I still view those with mental disorders as people and as such, still worthy of human rights such as freedom of public speech. In the end though, who is crazier? The schizophrenic that can't help it, or the brainwashed people that will support this, despite having the ability to make a conscious decision about what they are doing? My money is on the latter...
