Santorum and Intolerance

Yesterday Rick Santorum’s speech was disrupted by “Occupy Wall Street” protesters. Rick was upset and condemned the protesters for their “intolerance”. No doubt what they did was rude. Just as rude as the Tea Party protesters many disruptions a couple years ago. (Don’t recall if Rick condemned them). And Rick has every right to complain.

Normally I don’t see eye-to-eye with Rick but this is one area in which I must accede to his superior knowledge and expertise. If anyone knows INTOLERANCE it is Rick Santorum. He is the expert.

For years he has attempted to keep a few groups of Americans from enjoying all the legal rights of our society. The epitome of intolerance. Homosexuals should not be allowed to marry…or anything else. Women must be denied the right to privacy as guaranteed by Roe v Wade. In addition, women must be forbidden from using birth control  to prevent unwanted pregnancies which lead to  abortions.

Rick seems to be intolerant of the normal lives of over half the population of the US. He would substitute his very narrow brand of religious fundamentalism for the Constitution and equal protection under the law.

So, Rick, you must be right. You are the reigning expert. If you claim that the Occupy protesters are “intolerant” who are we to argue?  You have demonstrated over and over that when it comes to intolerance Rick  Santorum has all the qualifications as an expert.
