Santorum: Socialists ‘teaming with radical Islamists’ to spread venom

Published

on

Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum borrowed a line from Glenn Beck Friday and accused socialists and “radical Islamists” of working together to “spread their venom throughout the world.”

“There are people out there that hate us, not because of what we do, they hate us because who we are,” Santorum told a receptive audience at the Conservative Political Action Conference. “They hate us because we stand for things that they find antithetical to their world point of view. And it’s not just the radical Islamists, it’s the Bolivarian socialists in Central and South America.”

“It’s those socialists who are now teaming with the radical Islamists and creating training camps in Central and South America, not because they [don’t] like us, not because what we have done to their countries. It’s because they want us off the beat. It’s because they want to dominate the world. They want to spread their venom throughout the world and have it land up on our shores.”

He added: “If we do not have a lean-forward Reaganesque policy of fighting these folks where they are instead of waiting for them to come to our shores, ladies and gentlemen, we will be the generation that not only lost this country because of our debt, because of freedom being taken away by big government control, but we will be the country that will have allowed the world to sink into despair, and we will be and island and we will not be an island that will long survive.”

Published

on

In a column for Bloomberg, Tim O'Brien -- the author of "TrumpWorld" -- said the racist attack that Donald Trump made on four Democratic lawmakers who also all happen to be women of color, should not surprise anyone with a passing familiarity of the president.

According to O'Brien, racism has been a centerpiece of Trump's life going back to when he was just starting out in his family's real estate business.
