Michelle Obama Heckled By Gay-Rights Activist During Democratic Fundraiser!

michelle obama heckled gay rights activist

Do NOT interrupt the first lady. Ever.

As it happens, Michelle Obama was in the middle of her 20-minute speech at a Democratic fundraiser in Washington D.C. tuesday when a gay-rights activist reportedly decided to butt in and speak her mind.

The heckler, later identified as Ellen Sturtz, a member of the GetEQUAL campaign group, demanded that President Obama sign an executive order in favor of federal equality.

Of course, Michelle didn’t just brush this off. She walked directly up to the protester and said:

“One of the things I don’t do well is this.”

She then told Ellen that she had a choice: "listen to me or you can take the mic, but I'm leaving. You all decide. You have one choice.”

The rest of the audience roared in support of the first lady, while a fellow attendee informed Ellen it was time for her to leave. She didn’t go quietly, yelling that she was a “lesbian looking for federal equality before I die.”

Following the protestor's departure, Michelle finished her speech, receiving huge applause from those present — people who had paid $500 to $10,000 to attend, might we add.

The fight for gay rights is one that strikes particularly close to home, but being rude and disrespectful to the first lady is not the way to go.

    This just shows how deep your hypocrisy is. Had this had been a conservative speaker you would have lambasted them for not allowing free speech from a fellow gay person. You actually chastise the very one you should be shouting from the roof tops for the right to speak up for what they believe.

    Mario you are like water. You take the least resistive path. You have no morals or principles whatsoever. Do you even have a mirror to at least look in to see how depraved you really are? Absolutely pathetic.

    What's funny is that Obama made all these minority groups believe that he was in their corner and a supporter of their issues. Well he lied to you guys to vote for him the first time and he did nothing to pass any laws into effect. Now that he 'sweet talked' the GLB community into voting for him once again, did you think there was going to be a change? Idiocy is defined as doing the same thing over and over again ( voting for Obama the first time and now voting for him once again ) and expecting a different result. Burn me once shame on you, burn me twice shame on me! So GLB community you guys got suckered by Obama into believing he was going to do SOMETHING ( ANYTHING) for your cause and he's done nothing. Don't go crying 'foul!' now that you voted him in a second term! It's your own fault!

    It's disappointing Mrs.Obama reacted that way I thought she was a little more graceful than what she displayed.

    Re: overthere – Sorry but I did not lose my job to China under Bush but Obama, and he had at least two years with his party in control of Congress. He is just a moron and I am sorry I voted for him the first time.
    This lady is a loser and is not showing respect for the First Lady.
    If I paid that much money, and some idiot got up to push their cause (of any kind), I like to think I would have poured a glass of water over her if I was sitting nearby.

    In 2013 women STILL aren't treated or paid the same as men, so what do you expect for gay rights???



  11. 11

    strange that anyone thinks the POTUS let alone the FLOTUS can unilaterally change laws enacted by congress…



  12. 12

    even more curious how those who like to refer to pres. Obama as 'dictator' and 'authoritarian' for utilizing executive power are the first to ridicule him for not utilizing it.

    Re: teeter totter – I'm sorry you lost your job, but that doesn't make Obama 'just a moron'.and for many reasons democrats had control of congress only less than 6 months. policies have been mounting that weaken working people over the last 40 years-including outsourcing their jobs. most democrats including the president want to change that and republicans won't let them (because free market needs to be free and all) you're not saying if McCain had been elected instead you'd still have your job…right?

    What the hell does The First Lady being heckled have to do with anyone losing their job.. She is not the President or a Senator. She does not make decisions for the country. You Republican/Teabaggers are a hateful mean racist group of idiots who are brain washed by lies and deceit. President Obama has done more for the Gay community than any President ever has. And if you read the news and keep up with current events you will learn the truth and not bullshit that haters tend to speet.

    Bullshit.

    The heckler was the one doing the confrontation. Michelle just cried and threatened to leave… after being paid thousands.

    You know what rude and disrespectful Perez? Her husband directly responsible for killing hundreds around the world. Let alone having millions in the US still treated as second class citizens.

    Michelle was PAID to be there, and she doesn't get to repeat some script which was written for her. If she wants to be some sort of celebrity, she has to work for it.
