  • Rick Santorum Explains Equality

    Rick SantorumLadies and gentlemen, your freshly-crowned Iowa caucuses winner Rick Santorum

    At his last town hall before South Carolinians vote, Rick Santorum was discussing the concepts of freedom and equality that the nation was founded on and said the concept of equality "doesn't come from Islam" or "Eastern religions." Instead it comes from "the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob."

    "I get a kick out of folks who call for equality now, the people on the left, 'Well, equality, we want equality.' Where do you think this concept of equality comes from?" Santorum asked the enthusiastic crowd packed into a restaurant here. "It doesn't come from Islam. It doesn't come from the East and Eastern religions, where does it come from? It comes from the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, that’s where it comes from."

    Utterly chilling.

    Imagine how hard Rick Santorum would fight against equality if he thought it did come from Islam.

  • Rick Santorum Courts the Coveted Bigot Vote

    When campaigning in Iowa for the Republican nomination, it’s important to hit all the key GOP voting blocs: the evangelicals, the corn farmers, the olds and, of course, the bigots

    In taking questions, Santorum defended his past remarks in support of profiling people as potential terrorists at airports, saying "Of course not" when asked by a woman whether everyone who looks different from him should be profiled.

    "This is common sense. You have to look at what the profile is," Santorum said, suggesting that if a certain group of people were blowing up buildings they should be subject to profiling.

    "I don’t want to be called a xenophobe. I want to be called intelligent," he added, explaining he wants to protect the United States of America.

    After this comment, Rick Santorum has about the same chance of being called "intelligent" as he does being called "President."

    OK, Santorum, let’s make a deal: You get to profile your fellow airline passengers based on ethnicity or style of dress and we get to profile presidential candidates based on their Google search results. We'll judge you not by the color of your skin but by the content of your Urban Dictionary entry. Just as Dr. King would have wanted.

  • From the Pork Barrel: Rick Perry on Rick Perry

    * Rick Perry is jumping on the make fun of Rick Perry bandwagon. Unfortunately, just after everyone else is forgetting that Rick Perry is a person who exists.

    * Sen. Chuck Schumer takes a joke about as well you you might guess Sen. Chuck Schumer might.

    * Republicans are learning the proper way to address the Occupy Wall Street movement. Surprisingly, growling "Go get a job after you take a bath" hardly factors in at all.

    * Newt Gingrich is continuing to amass support for his army of of poverty-stricken underage custodians. You won't be laughing when their little fingers start clawing their way up from the bathroom sink.

    * Turns out the Ginger White thing was such an non-infidelity that Herman Cain didn't even bother telling his wife about her. Your move, vast conspiracy trying to take Cain down.

    * Glenn Beck narrowly escaped an encounter with a real life genuine Muslim person yesterday. Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family in this difficult time.

  • Are You Eating a Muslim Turkey This Thanksgiving?

    Conservative blogger Pamela Geller — writing for American Thinker — just unleashed a shocking torrent of Terror across our collective holiday weekend.

    You probably thought that you were going to enjoy a nice Christian Thanksgiving with your nice Christian family and your Christian friends in your Christian dining room tomorrow. But then… Surprise, Muslism!

    A citizen activist and reader of my website wrote to Butterball, one of the most popular producers of Thanksgiving turkeys in the United States, asking them if their turkeys were halal. Wendy Howze, a Butterball Consumer Response Representative, responded: "Our whole turkeys are certified halal."…

    Across this great country, on Thanksgiving tables nationwide, infidel Americans are unwittingly going to be serving halal turkeys to their families this Thursday. Turkeys that are halal certified — who wants that, especially on a day on which we are giving thanks to G-d for our freedom? I wouldn't knowingly buy a halal turkey — would you? Halal turkey, slaughtered according to the rules of Islamic law, is just the opposite of what Thanksgiving represents: freedom and inclusiveness, neither of which are allowed for under that same Islamic law.

    Oh no! I don't want invisible Musliminess all over my Thanksgiving bird! Get it it off! Get it off!

    I don't know about you, but went out shopping this past weekend with three very specific prerequisites for my turkey: 1) That it be heterosexual, 2) that it had signed a pledge in opposition to all tax increases prior to its slaughtering, and 3) that it had been brought up in a good God-fearing Lutheran family.

    Maybe I'd settle for an Jewish turkey. Maybe. But not like a liberal Jewish intellectual turkey or anything. If it wants to be slaughtered for my family and served with my sister's recipe for raisin and walnut  stuffing, it best have had a literalist view of Biblical history, or no dice!

  • Herman Cain Was Almost Operated on by a Muslim

    Wait until you hear this bone-chilling story that Herman Cain told a Florida crowd of his days as a cancer patient

    He did have a slight worry at one point during the chemotherapy process when he discovered that one of the surgeon's name was "Dr. Abdallah."

    "I said to his physician assistant, I said, 'That sounds foreign — not that I had anything against foreign doctors — but it sounded too foreign," Cain tells the audience.

    Too foreign? What could he have meant by that? Oooohhhh… Wait, I get it. I totally get it. Think about it for a minute and you'll figure it out. Here's a hint: The "too foreign" doctor's name was "Abdallah."  (It means "Muslim.")

    "She said, 'He's from Lebanon.' Oh, Lebanon! My mind immediately started thinking, wait a minute, maybe his religious persuasion is different than mine!

    A different religious persuasion! Aaaaaaaaahhhhhh!!! Tell me what happens! I can't look! I can't look!!

    She could see the look on my face and she said, 'Don't worry, Mr. Cain, he's a Christian from Lebanon.'"

    "Hallelujah!" Cain says. "Thank God!" The crowd laughs uneasily.

    Oh my! That was a close one. I almost had a heart attack there, I think. But everything worked out okay in the end, I guess.

    As scary as that story was for all of us, you've got to figure it was a billion times more scary for Cain while it was happening. Sure, we all know that a professionals are not supposed to allow their religious persuasion to affect their jobs — you know, like a wall of separation — but how many of them really follow that tenet? I think that Herman Cain and I — and all the people in the audience at The Holy Land Experience Christian-theme amusement park at which Herman Cain was telling that anecdote while stumping for votes — know just how little you can trust a Muslim to keep religion out of their work.
