Santorum, Incapable Of Completing Anything, Uses Half Of The ‘N-Word’

Lisa Derrick of FDL has details… and a video.

The real problem is that Santorum’s half-mumbled racial slur is not an accident, nor is it atypical of extreme right-wing nut-jobs in America. To them it’s just another word. Yes, they know it’s derogatory, socially unacceptable and damaging to race relations, but it falls off their lips without any thought given to those aspects. And many of today’s Republicans are just like Santorum. He is representative of them. And that’s scary, when you think about it.

Look. I am white. It is a simple fact that my ancestors on my mother’s side of the family “owned” the likely ancestors of some of the African Americans I have known and worked with… in the legal sense only, in the old South, not that any human being ever has a moral right to own another. To my way of thinking, my family’s actions three or four generations ago obligate me: there is no way to compensate a person or his or her descendants for two or three generations of captive unpaid servitude… slavery… but it is my obligation to try.

For Santorum and his ilk, however, that historical reality leads them to treat today’s African Americans with a deep-seated contempt… just because of their skin color and their racial origin. There is plenty to fault in Barack Obama as a politician and a president, but Santorum and his cohort choose instead to vilify him for his race. That tells me all I need to know about Rick Santorum.

I almost wish I believed in reincarnation. Santorum needs to spend a lifetime in an African nation with an unstable government, an Islamic majority (Santorum is Catholic) and a shortage of food. Oh, and of course, he needs to be reincarnated Black.

      And gay… and caught with his pants down and a dog in front of him!

      There is something deeply, fundamentally wrong with someone capable of the degree of hatred that spews forth from Santorum, and something even more incomprehensibly hostile about someone who would vote for him. The fact that the GOP has such a candidate and that that candidate is having such a successful run is truly bad news for America.

      (The Google Chrome spell checker offers as a suggestion for Santorum, “Monsanto”!)

    Once one steps aside and looks at the Republican sewer, it becomes clearer that the real power is mostly hidden and these incomparable morons are merely a sideshow for the end.

      MandT, I myself would just as soon not commit Republican sewer-side… <grin_duck_run />
