GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum received some inhospitable greetings from ‘Occupy’ protesters at a speech in Oklahoma City Sunday afternoon, yelling “racist” and “fascist” towards the former Pennsylvania senator.

About 20 protesters gathered at the state capitol building and repeatedly chanted “Get your hate out of our state” and “Women’s rights” during Santorum’s speech, according to Yahoo’s The Ticket.

The demonstrations lasted about 15 minutes with Santorum’s supporters yelling “We want Rick” to combat the protesters’ chants.

Santorum has encountered several contentious moments on the campaign trail, including having glitter thrown in his face on two occasions and having a speech interrupted by ‘Occupy’ protesters in Tacoma, Washington in February.
