Why is it that I found the strongest denouncement of the vicious attack against Rick Santorum comes from a liberal progressive who would never ever support Rick Santorum, but recognizes how crude and dehumanizing that attack is? Where are the Conservatives? I don't see a whole lot of folks talking about him, much less defending him from the unfair hostile aggression that has been used to destroy his very name.
Let's have a look at who is behind that awful degradation campaign, shall we? via Florida Squeezed:
That would be the very same Dan Savage "It's Gets Better" guy who Obama has teamed up with and made a video for, by the way. This is an attack on our entire society. Imagine your child going online to learn about presidential candidates, perhaps for a school report, and they see that explicit and despicable reference right at the very top of the results page in any major search engine they use.First, let’s start out with the possibly the most neglected hypocrite of them all: Dan Savage… Yes, I’m talking about the “It Gets Better” guy…
You see, It Gets Better aims to foster warm-fuzzy feelings not in the bullying victims themselves, but rather the people who made the videos. Sadly, the videos made by concerned citizens are largely ignored on YouTube while everyone really only cares to hear from their favorite celebrity… However well intentioned it was to start, it’s becoming a PR tool to tap into the gay market. But the irony of this movement is that Dan Savage himself is a cyber-bully.
There. I said it.
Was he not the person who designed the nauseatingly vulgar and intentionally humiliating website which attacks a Catholic Republican candidate named Rick Santorum? This action fits squarely within every definition of cyber-bullying on Wikipedia. So what is Dan Savage REALLY teaching kids about bullies? If you can’t beat them, join them?
Rick Santorum is a deeply principled and moral man, he stands strong for what he believes is right and never waivers. He's a decent man who has been unfairly victimized by cyber bully thugs and he deserves better. He needs to get some tech savvy people on his campaign team, badly. He also needs to get moderators to control the trolls on his facebook page (as do the people who've made pages on facebook supporting him). We can help too, and we should, by learning more about him and by posting stuff about him to our social networks and blogs that has correct information about how he fights for the issues that are important to us. I have carefully looked at the other candidates, and Rick Santorum best represents my own feelings on the issues most important to me: border security and stemming the flood of criminal alien invaders, peace through strength foreign policies and honestly recognizing the dire threat of islamonazism so it can be dealt with appropriately - he is also a very strong supporter of Israel. Conservatives will do a disservice to themselves and America by not paying attention to what this man has to say and by not stepping up and defending a decent human being who has been horribly defamed.
I watched the CNN debate in New Hampshire and thought that Rick Santorum did a great job, I was surprised to see him barely mentioned in TV discussions about the debate or out in the blogs. I had intended for this post to be entirely different, I wanted to tell you all about why I feel Rick Santorum is the best choice for the GOP nomination, but as I researched to write this article, I kept coming across horrible, disgusting, immoral, degrading, dehumanizing, agitprop from the CRAPTASTIC attack machine and couldn't ignore it because it is just so very wrong and flat out evil.
I will be writing more about Rick Santorum in the very near future, in the mean time, please check out my previous post about him HERE. You will also find a wealth of information at Lisa Graas's blog. Also, be sure to use the correct link to visit his website, HERE. That's http://www.ricksantorum.com/index.php - be sure to only use that address for his official website, similarly named websites are attack sites filled with obscene vulgar filth designed to sabotage Rick Santorum and irreparably destroy his name.
Note for the hate filled trolls that I see on nearly every site that talks about Rick Santorum, your garbage won't be tolerated here so you'll be wasting your time if you think you're going to be able to abuse my comments section with your cruelty.
