The Very Worst Things About Rick ‘Frothy Mix’ Santorum (IMAGE/VIDEO)

The Republican clown car is growing to bus size and on Wednesday, an old favorite entered the race: Rick (a.k.a. Frothy Mix, a.k.a. don’t Google) Santorum.

Santorum is best known as one of the more extreme social conservatives in the race, and that says a lot. He’s about the only one who can give Mike Huckabee a run for his money in his pure religiosity. Santorum and Huckabee could be hate twins if it weren’t for the fact that Santorum lacks Huckabee’s down-home yuck-yuck charm and well, Huckabee’s a Protestant while Santorum is Catholic.

You probably know why you should never Google Santorum, but if you don’t, here’s a deliciously disgusting reminder. When he was running for President in 2012, LGBT activist Dan Savage bought a website called www.spreadingsantorum.com and he cleverly manipulated Google so his site appeared higher than Santorum’s. Here’s what people saw:

When you click on the site, you find several videos of Santorum being Santorum, which is both funny and frightening, and here’s why:

He hates, I mean hates gay people. He has accused gay people of being pedophiles, incestuous and of engaging in bestiality:

“In every society, the definition of marriage has not ever to my knowledge included homosexuality,” Santorum said. “That’s not to pick on homosexuality. It’s not, you know, man on child, man on dog, or whatever the case may be.”

“Is anyone saying same-sex couples can’t love each other? I love my children. I love my friends, my brother. Heck, I even love my mother-in-law. Should we call these relationships marriage, too?”

More recently, he said that gay marriage would lead to less marriage:

“When we continue to see a decline in marriage and a redefinition of marriage, you get less marriage,” he said. “You get families that aren’t as strong, and as a result, society generally, the economy suffers.”

In April, he used CBS’ “Face the Nation” as a platform to say “God Hates Fags” and he compared LGBT people to the notorious hate group the Westboro Baptist Church:

“Tolerance is a two-way street,” Santorum said on CBS’ “Face the Nation” Sunday. “If you’re a print shop and you are a gay man, should you be forced to print ‘God Hates Fags’ for the Westboro Baptist Church because they hold those signs up? And this is really the case here: Should the government force you to do that? And that’s what these cases are all about. This is about the government coming in and saying, ‘No we’re gonna make you do this.’ And this is where I think we just need some space to say, ‘Let’s have some tolerance be a two-way street.’”

Rick Santorum is passionate about porn. Wait, I should have said Rick Santorum is passionate in his hatred of porn, but not because it often involves human trafficking or the degradation of women – okay, maybe that’s part of it, but he’s also the world’s biggest prude and I’m including a world with Mike Huckabee.

“America is suffering a pandemic of harm from pornography. It contributes to misogyny and violence against women. It is a contributing factor to prostitution and sex trafficking,” the former Pennsylvania senator wrote in a statement posted on his campaign website.

“Current federal ‘obscenity’ laws prohibit distribution of hardcore (obscene) pornography on the Internet, on cable/satellite TV, on hotel/motel TV, in retail shops and through the mail or by common carrier,” Santorum wrote in the statement, adding that these laws should be “vigorously enforced.”

One area where he might even be to the right of his brother with a different mother Huckabee is with birth control. Huckabee, like Rush Limbaugh, associated insurance paid birth control with sluts who want a free handout, but Santorum’s view is altogether something else, which ostensibly comes from his Catholicism.

“One of the things I will talk about, that no president has talked about before, is I think the dangers of contraception in this country,” Santorum said. “Many of the Christian faith have said, well, that’s OK; contraception is OK. It’s not OK. It’s a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be.”

Ironically, while he shames women for using birth control he also hates one of the results of not using birth control – single mothers.

“Look at the political base of the Democratic Party: it is single mothers who run a household,” Santorum said. “Why? Because it’s so tough economically that they look to the government for help, and therefore they’re going to vote. So if you want to reduce the Democratic advantage, what you want to do is build two-parent families, you eliminate that desire for government.”

Who can forget the nail in the coffin of Santorum’s campaign last go-round?

At a campaign stop in Sioux City, Iowa on Sunday, Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum singled out blacks as being recipients of assistance through federal benefit programs, telling a mostly-white audience he doesn’t want to “make black people’s lives better by giving them somebody else’s money.” Source

Now to be fair, he had a defense. He denied saying “black people” and insisted that he had said “blah people” (said the man in the sweater vest).

In another slip of the tongue, Santorum appeared to come very close to using the “n” word at a rally in Wisconsin:

“We know the candidate Barack Obama, what he was like – the anti-war government nig …” he seems to say, then suddenly stopping, and changing tack to add: “America was a source for division around the world, that what we were doing was wrong.”

I’ll let you decide what that might have been.

If in some dystopian world, Santorum ever did become President, he wouldn’t hesitate to turn our country into his version of Sharia law. In fact, he thinks the separation of church and state is downright communist.

“Well, I was just thinking,” Santorum chimed in, “that the words ‘separation of church and state’ is not in the U.S. Constitution, but it was in the constitution of the former Soviet Union. That’s where it very, very comfortably sat, not in ours.”

Santorum isn’t just a social conservative. He’s also a war monger. On Iran:

On NBC’s Meet the Press, Santorum said that if he became president, he’d demand that the Iranians open up all of their suspected nuclear program facilities or face “air strikes.” “You would order air strikes…?” host David Gregory asked. “Yes, that’s the plan,” Santorum replied.

He refuses to believe that Palestine exists:

In November, 2011, Sanotrum said, “all the people who live in the West Bank are Israelis, they’re not Palestinians.”
