In an interview with CNS News on Thursday, former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum invoked race in unleashing a questionable attack on President Barack Obama over the issue of abortion.
“The question is, and this is what Barack Obama didn’t want to answer — is that human life a person under the constitution?” he said. “And Barack Obama says no. Well if that human life is not a person then I find it almost remarkable for a black man to say ‘now we are going to decide who are people and who are not people.’”
He also said that “no biologist in the world” would disagree that an embryo is “human life,” which is a really cute way to word that. Of course that is a potential human life. That is not the point, and it does not mean it deserves the same rights as a living, breathing human being.
That being said, I just love it when conservative white men start man-splaining how minorities should feel. They damn themselves with their own pig ignorant words.
Oh, how I hope this clown runs for president.
But we ain’t done yet! Oh, no no no. In the very same interview, he said that keeping gay people from marrying/adopting children is “common sense” and added:
This is nature. And what we’re trying to do is defy nature because a certain group of people want to be affirmed by society.
What does it remind you of? If you said “Southern racists all the way up to yesterday, whether talking about miscegenation or upholding slavery or whatever the hell else,” you win the prize, because his language is the exact same as the language they used. Same poorly educated hick bigotry, different minority, different day.
Again: Please run for president, you rube.
