Rick Santorum’s monster win yesterday means that he will be the next Republican candidate to get skewered by the corrupt media. No doubt his comments from the 2003 campaign will be brought back into the conversation. So before your read this somewhere else I thought I would post this report and let you decide for yourself.
This comes from Wikipedia:

The Santorum controversy arose over Republican former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum’s statements about homosexuality and the right to privacy. In an interview with the Associated Press (AP) taped on April 7, 2003, and published April 20, 2003, Santorum stated that he believed mutually consenting adults do not have a constitutional right to privacy with respect to sexual acts. Santorum described the ability to regulate consensual homosexual acts as comparable to the states’ ability to regulate other consensual and non-consensual sexual behavior, such as adultery, polygamy, child molestation, incest, sodomy, and bestiality, whose decriminalization he believed would threaten society and the family, as they are not monogamous and heterosexual.

Some commentators condemned his statements, while some conservatives came to his defense. The controversy carried over into Santorum’s presidential campaign in 2011.

This is what made Rick Santorum a target on the left. . I will post an update if I get more information. In the meantime, you can discuss your reaction below.

UPDATE: Thank you, Aaron Z., for adding the following in your comment…

Along with the 2003 interview, Santorum gave another interview in 2006 that will haunt him in a general election:

“This whole idea of personal autonomy, well I don’t think most conservatives hold that point of view. Some do. They have this idea that people should be left alone … [that] government should keep our taxes down and keep our regulations low, that we shouldn’t get involved in the bedroom, we shouldn’t get involved in cultural issues. … Well, that is not how traditional conservatives view the world and I think most conservatives understand that individuals can’t go it alone.”

  1. Got it…he’s a bigot. There’s nothing like big government getting into everyones business.

  2. I am a bigot too. Anyone that want to [edited for vulgar language] animals or their own sex, please just go away.

    Next thing you know Nambla will be asking for rights.

  3. Oooops, next thing you know the militaristic gay community will be here

  4. This glitter thing has got to stop. As I have said before, one of these days the hand will not be full of glitter, but rather a .357 mag. This is exactly how George Wallace was gunned down.
    Does anyone think that some of the more wild eyed OWSers would not be capable of doing so?

  5. God! how I wish we would have VETTED Obama in this same way…

  6. Nice red herring David. What two adult individuals do is none of the government s business. I don’t agree with it, can’t fathom doing anything with another dude, but that doesn’t give me the right to tell those people what they can and can’t do. Let god deal with them. The GOP needs to stop all their hate.

  7. I bet Rick Sanatarium and David Kramer agree with the below activity in Iran.

    http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2011/01/iranian-regime-set-to-execute-two-homosexual-men-by-stoning/

    Hey Rick, you might not want to invade and kill the Iranians yet. Looks like they are doing something you agree with.

  8. Santorum has been targeted? Not even. I think the vetting begins for him now. Let’s hope he’s everything he believes himself to be.

  9. Actually, along with the baggage of being called religiously intolerant, Santorum is also what can be termed a “pro-life statist.” He believes strongly in a large, activist government that has the power to decide what’s best for you. He’s supported most of the big-spending government projects that have left us with a $15 trillion national debt.

    Along with the 2003 interview, Santorum gave another interview in 2006 that will haunt him in a general election:

    “This whole idea of personal autonomy, well I don’t think most conservatives hold that point of view. Some do. They have this idea that people should be left alone … [that] government should keep our taxes down and keep our regulations low, that we shouldn’t get involved in the bedroom, we shouldn’t get involved in cultural issues. … Well, that is not how traditional conservatives view the world and I think most conservatives understand that individuals can’t go it alone.”

    http://campaign2012.washingtonexaminer.com/article/santorum-statist-claiming-be-conservative/301396

    When the general public gets pounded over the head by millions of negative ads saying Santorum wants government in your bedroom, and when conservatives become aware of the fact that his voting record is for huge earmarks and massive deficit spending, do you really think he can win against Obama?

  10. @#6 Why are more GOP folks like you? The common chant from the right is anti-government EXCEPT when it comes to your body and sex. Sen. Santorum is a hypocrite, bigot and has no business trying to be the POTUS. He is far too bible thumping to lead a secular nation.

  11. Rick is right….

  12. Santorum does have serious problems per his intolerance for others not like him. It must be nice to have been born the right kind of Sneech with the proper star, because to not have that star sure leads to a lot of misery.

    He is quite hated by the college generation, especially its libertarian fiscal conservatives, and I share much of their skepticism. It is quite difficult to understand people who stand up for the freedom from the government to worship the way they choose, to run their business the way they choose, to educate their children the way they choose, but to then see those same liberty-minded individuals turn into fascists who demand that same government intervene in someone elses family and business to impose their sexual norms upon them.

    Homosexuality is common in nature. That makes it natural, even if some of us (myself included) cannot stand the thought of engaging in it. Nature varies profoundly for a variety of reasons. If you want others to respect your religious, social or economic beliefs, the best thing you can do is extend the same respect and leave them alone for theirs.

    Let’s see if Santorum deals with his track record of being a homophobe, a sexist with a track record for having problems treating women as equals, and sets aside his proclivity for shoving his reactionary social views upon other people like a proper becoming-totalitarian.

  13. I agree with Stuart. This glitter nonsense could blind someone, and who knows when it will be a bag of urine, acid, scorpians, etc. Our news crew interviewed the guy who glitter-bombed at least 4 politicians. He was grinning proudly at his fame. He gets hauled out and immediately released to do it again.

  14. Doesn’t matter he’s a horror on the border. It’s the single most dangerous issue to the country and none of the candidates will do a thing about immigration. In fact it is the single most dangerous issue that faces the world. Rick doesn’t even believe in the border or any type of enforcement because the people coming over are poor people in need.

    Once you let in enough people in who won’t assimilate the nation will be destroyed. This was also a prediction of the founding fathers and they are pretty much right about everything. For this reason they never had any faith in other revolutions to establish democracies like the US. Read the “Idea of America” a series of lectures on what was thought at the time of the founding of our country.

  15. While I agree with Mr. Santorum that any relations outside a “one-man-one-woman-together-for-live” marriage is morally wrong, I don’t think the government has any business telling consenting adults what they can and cannot do with their own bodies. It’s my belief that the government should protect its citizens from other people, but it has no business protecting citizens from themselves.

  16. Santorum’s sexist problems:

    Senior Santorum staffer Jamie Johnson says women unfit to be president, would harm children if they saw it. An aberration and perversity of God’s will and the Bible.

    http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2012/01/18/santorum-staffer-questions-whether-god-wants-women-presidents/

    News stories indicate that Johnson is still staffed, is unapologetic, and that Santorum stands by his staffer’s words and actions.

  17. Remember this those who want a forced acceptance of homosexual behavior: In every state that homosexual marriage has been up for a popular vote (even in California) it has been defeated. Yes this is a issue, but America will not let it be a issue. So break a nail because forced acceptance of a perversion will , and is, already backfiring on the homosexual community.

  18. Rick Santorum is a big government statist who is a religious zealot whose brain is a raging electrical storm of divine visions and paranoid delusions.

    Neocon Rick Santorum, a real lunatic who believes that birth-control is a detriment to an overpopulated world, and that nuking any country which even questions the United States’ failed policies abroad is the best idea since sliced-bread.

    Santorum represents an archetypical cliche of the Republican Party and hopefully the American people recognize that his bigotry, homophobia and theocratic beliefs do not best represent their interests.

    He’s just another right wing religious zealot who is unelectable.

    The only reason he is getting any attention is because the republican’s have run out of Anti-Romney candidates and they are to stupid to support Ron Paul the only true conservative in the race.

  19. I’ve heard this idea that homosexuality occurs in nature frequently, but where is the evidence? All I’ve ever seen is animals mounting other animals of the same sex when the opposite sex isn’t an option. No penetration, ever. And the mountee usually resists. There are same sex friendships among animals, but not nesting or den-building same-sex pairs. So when and where does real homosexuality occur in the animal kingdom? Somehow I think if it had ever been captured on video, we’d all have seen it a thousand times. So I think it happens approximately never.
