Michelle Obama confronts gay-rights heckler at fundraiser

By John Newland, Staff Writer, NBC News

Michelle Obama confronted a gay-rights protester who heckled her at a Democratic fundraiser in Washington on Tuesday, offering to give her the microphone and leave, before the crowd cheered for the first lady to stay.
Obama was 12 minutes into a planned 20-minute speech at a couple’s home when a woman standing at the front of the small crowd interrupted, demanding that President Barack Obama sign an executive order on gay rights.
“One of the things I don’t do well is this,” the first lady said before walking down from the lectern and approaching the protester, according to a pool reporter covering the event.
Obama told the woman that people gathered in the backyard tent could "listen to me or you can take the mic, but I'm leaving,” before telling the crowd, “You all decide. You have one choice.”

At that, the crowd began chanting for Obama to stay as one woman told the protester, “You need to leave.”
The woman was escorted out, shouting that she was a “lesbian looking for federal equality before I die.”
Obama then returned to the lectern and finished her speech, getting loud applause as she did.

I really don't have any sympathy for any these god-damned hecklers, whether they be on the right or the left.

All I can wonder about is whether or not these people would be so bold if they didn't have the first Black First Family currently occupying the White House to scream at.

Kudos on Mrs. Obama for handling this disrespecting Ellen Sturtz person with class and intelligence. Ms. Sturz obviously tried to bite off more than she could chew… And then some.

The magic is all in the angles…
