Rick Santorum: ‘President Obama Wants To Guillotine Christians’ (VIDEO)

Author: February 9, 2012 1:01 pm

During a town hall in Texas on Wednesday, Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum told the crowd that President Obama’s agenda will lead to a new French Revolution that will be based on executing Christians by way of the guillotine. The comments may appeal to crowds in Texas and the religious right wing in general, but to the rest of the population, Santorum is using the rhetoric of fear which doesn’t usually go over too well. Emboldened by his victories in Colorado, Missouri, and Minnesota on Tuesdays night,Santorum made the outrageous comments in response to the decision made by the Ninth Circuit Court to strike down Proposition 8 as unconstitutional and the Obama Administration’s decision to require religiously affiliated organizations to offer contraceptives to women.

“When you look and see what the left is trying to do in America today, progressives are trying to shutter faith, privatize it, push it out of the public square, oppress people of faith, strip their charitable deductions away from them, trying to weaken them, churches — trying to say that anyone who believes in the value of Judeo-Christian principles.

As we saw in the Ninth Circuit just this week, that if you believe that [same sex marriage is wrong] — this is what the court said — that if believe that, if you believe what’s taught in Genesis, if you believe what’s practiced Biblically and a generation since then you are irrational. The only possible reason you could believe this, according to the Ninth Circuit, is that you are a bigot and that you are a hater.

They are taking faith and crushing it. Why? Why? When you marginalize faith in America, when you remove the pillar of God-given rights, then what’s left is the French Revolution. What’s left is the government that gives you right, what’s left are no unalienable rights, what’s left is a government that will tell you who you are, what you’ll do and when you’ll do it. What’s left in France became the guillotine. Ladies and gentlemen, we’re a long way from that, but if we do and follow the path of President Obama and his overt hostility to faith in America, then we are headed down that road.”

Here’s the part of the speech via ThinkProgress:

Rick Santorum has a long history of making outrageous remarks. His focus on abortion and same-sex marriage has improbably propelled his campaign for the Republican nomination. He has led a vicious assault against Democrats and the Constitution by trying to legalize religiously based bigotry and hatred. Rick Santorum has publicly stated that he wants to legislate our private lives and wants to make laws based on church doctrine. Never mind that this violates the separation of Church and State and violates the religious freedom of non-Christians, Santorum’s goal to institute religious law across the land sounds like what Islamic extremists seek to do in Middle Eastern countries. In Iran, religious law is the law.

And despite what Santorum claims, the French Revolution was more about the fact that the French monarchy was living lavishly while allowing the people to starve and languish in poverty. Kinda like how the wealthy are treating the American people today, don’t you think? Maybe he has a point about the guillotine after all…

    Rick Santorum is just trying to distract us from the real issues. The Republican’s mostly Right Wing want to create a society of the have’s and the have not’s. The wealthy corporations will sit a the top in thier castles and we the surf’s will pay all the taxes and do all the work. Of course he is anti education. The more ill informed the public is the more likely they will buy into the Republican lies and distortions and vote against themselves. It is a story that has been going on for a thousand years. The Wealthy class has been doing this to the rest of the population since the time of the Pharoah’s.

  • Guys, I think it’s time to admit it, he caught on to the lefts master plan to fix the environment, allow people to practice any religion, gays to get married, fix the economy and guillotine Christians

  • Santorum’s statements are testimony to what one can get away with in the name of “conservatism” and Christianity.

  • Run, Rick, run!! The men in the white suits with canvas jacket are coming to get you!!

  • “what’s left is a government that will tell you who you are, what you’ll do and when you’ll do it.” Exactly, especially if Santourm gets elected. Is anyone stupid enough to believe this B.S!?

  • There’s no point to engaging with this kind of insane talk. The whole point is to create controversey and agitate his base so that they’ll rally round. Liberals need to take the high road in dealing with Santorum and all of his ilk. See “Liberals: Climb out of the Swamp” at http://thepoliticali.blogspot.com/2012/02/liberals-climb-out-of-swamp.html.

    Jesus-H.-Ever-Loving-Christ! What a dangerous human being! This man would bring our country back to the Dark Ages. The Age of Reason? Forget it! Santorum would make us a theocracy with fundamentalist Christian rule. His “God given” rights are only rights for those who agree with him. He is certifiably crazy.

    Man,I am a Christian, and proud of it. But Rick Santorum DOES NOT represent me, or my God. God doesnt want us to go around and spread fear, which is what this fool is doing. Pisses me off and people like him are the exact reason that people hate Christians

  • Santorum needs to go back and study his history. The cause of the French revolution was the same crap we have today, with the wealthy elite controlling just aboout everything in the lives of the populace. It had nothing to do with faith or religion.

    • It should be noted that Santorum bases his entire campaign on religious rhetoric so we should expect nothing else from him let alone anything of substance.

      That said, I noted that MN actually voted for him. It appears that since I left the state things have deteriorated drastically.

      With that in mind I am opening for donations to return to MN and bring back sanity to the people. I’m already in Missouri and have had to give up on them as a bad job before I started…

      Can’t fix Born Again, Redneck, Republican Christians…

      I may find myself in need of extra funds, there do appear to be a few sensible people who are either the BARRC or libertarian who will be in need of evacuation when I leave.
