A video of slam poet Sierra DeMulder blasting Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) during an incredible performance at the 2013 Women of the World Poetry Slam in March 2013 is currently making the rounds on the Internet.

The finalist railed against Bachmann and her husband, who co-own a clinic that has been tied to gay "conversion therapy," during the one-minute round at the WOWPS preliminaries, which took place in Minneapolis, Minnesota, not far from where the Bachmann clinic is located.

DeMulder grows emotional as she delivers lines like, "When another gay teenager commits suicide in Minnesota, you consider this free advertising" and "How could we expect you to take a stand against bullying when it helps pay for your mortgage, when it puts food in your children's belly?"

Watch the powerful full performance in the video above.
