The private meeting took place this afternoon (early evening Austrian time) in a local Viennese coffeehouse. The American visitors had heard about Elisabeth’s case, and discussed it with her over Apfelstrudel, Sachertorte and Viennese coffee.
The congressmen and woman listened intently to what Elisabeth had to say. Rep. Bachmann was particularly concerned about theÂ recent supreme court decisionÂ that upheld Elisabeth’s “hate speech” conviction.
“We don’t want this to happen in the USA,” said Ms. Bachmann. “Every American citizen has the right to express themselves. Everyone should have the security to speak.
“We are proud of you. You are a brave and unique person. God has given you a special gift to speak out.”
Rep. Gohmert and the other congressmen said they were appalled by the decision.
