As expected Mitt Romney won the Iowa caucus with 24.55% of the vote, Internet hero Ron Paul came third with 21.4% whilst Michelle Bachmann brought a smile to my face by limping into 6th place with 5% of the vote, after which she soon suspended her campaign. However in a massive surprise to all in 2nd place came Rick Santorum with 24.54% of the vote falling just 8 votes short of Romney and overshadowing Romney’s weak victory with his late surge. Just who is this Rick Santorum fellow then?

Rick SantorumI mentioned in my last article Michelle Bachmann’s loathing for gay people, creating a clinic in an attempt to cure them of the supposed disease of homosexuality. Well Santorum’s hatred of gay people may even overshadow hers. This can be seen by his numerous comments regarding gay people, including this absolute gem from an interview with the Associated Press in April 2003 linking homosexuality with bigamy and incest.

‘If the Supreme Court says that you have the right to consensual [gay] sex within your home, then you have the right to bigamy, you have the right to polygamy, you have the right to incest, you have the right to adultery. You have the right to anything… In every society, the definition of marriage has not ever, to my knowledge, included homosexuality. That’s not to pick on homosexuality. It’s not, you know, man on child, man on dog, or whatever the case may be. It is one thing.’

His bigotry for homosexuals is equal to his bigotry for the Palestinian people. Newt Gingrich declared recently that Palestinians were invented people and are all terrorists. Santorum denies their existence. In an informal discussion with a young man he claimed that those who live in the West Bank ‘are Israelis, they’re not Palestinians. There is no ‘Palestinian.’ This is Israeli land.’ In the same chat, he referred to Mexico as part of the United States three times.

Being a Zionist shill, he also advocates strong arm tactics against Iran. He has stated that as President he would bomb Iranian nuclear facilities if the Iranian’s refused to open them up for inspection. He would also allow the assassination of Iranian nuclear scientists, he had this to say on them ‘Nuclear scientists who work on this program, particularly if they come from foreign countries into that, they will be seen as enemy combatants. They will be people who are threats to the United States just like your garden variety terrorist.’

In a field of crazies Santorum has planted his flag as the king of the crazies. Thankfully his victory at New Hampshire should be a one off due the fact he lacks the finance to keep up with the likes of Romney. Also take solace from the fact that during his time in the Senate he was seen as its dumbest member. Having just been in Congress for a few weeks he was summed up very well by a Nebraska Senator Bob Kerrey ‘Santorum’ he said ‘That’s Latin for asshole’.
