• Rick Santorum Defends the Crusades' Good Name

    Finally, a politician who's brave enough to defend a series of jingoistic bloody holy wars of aggression against foreign peoples with whom you disagree on spiritual matters.

    I was wondering when somebody was going to get around to that

    Rick Santorum launched into a scathing attack on the left, charging during an appearance in South Carolina that the history of the Crusades has been corrupted by "the American left who hates Christendom."

    "The idea that the Crusades and the fight of Christendom against Islam is somehow an aggression on our part is absolutely anti-historical," Santorum said in Spartanburg on Tuesday. "And that is what the perception is by the American left who hates Christendom."…

    After asserting that Christianity had not shown any "aggression" to the Muslim world, the former Pennsylvania senator [Santorum] — who is considering a 2012 run for the White House — argued that American intervention in the Middle East helps promote "core American values."

    I wonder how grateful all those people living in the Middle East are for America's intervening to promote those "core American values" through their Middle Eastern countries.

    Probably a lot, right?
