We Insist!': Conservatives Shout Down AIDS Activists Trying to Crash Bachmann Speech


CNN reports out of Nashua, NH:

In a surprise clash of conservative activists versus liberal activists, advocates for the president's global AIDS plan crashed Rep. Michele Bachmann's carefully choreographed speech to a gathering of New Hampshire Republicans.

As the Minnesota lawmaker spoke to the GOP state committee on Saturday in Nashua, a line of liberal activists burst into a chant and waved signs that read, "Michele Bachmann, We Insist! End AIDS treatment waiting lists."

The activists were incensed at proposed budget cuts to PEPFAR, the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief.

As they attempted to circle the room, getting closer to the platform where the congresswoman was speaking, conservatives in attendance sprang into action – booing, shouting down the activists and ushering them out of the room.

After they were ousted, Bachmann lashed out at them.

"They just brought the buses in from Madison, Wisconsin," the congresswoman said, an apparent reference to recent protests over bargaining rights of most Wisconsin state workers.

"Get ready, we're seeing this kind of response because the left knows that we're coming," Bachmann said over loud applause.
