Rick Santorum: Court ruling on marriage equality proves me right about ‘man on dog’

Published

on

Two-time presidential candidate and former U.S. senator Rick Santorum is perhaps best-known for two things – an unfortunate Internet neologism that made his name synonymous with a byproduct of anal sex and his bizarre comments about “man on dog” relationships.

Santorum, who’s running again for the Republican presidential nomination, unsuccessfully lobbied Google to alter search results involving his name – but he thinks he was vindicated in his warning against bestiality, reported Right Wing Watch.

He first made the comparison in 2003, shortly before the U.S. Supreme Court struck down state bans on sodomy, saying such laws against consensual sex were necessary to prevent non-consensual sex.

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

He has defended his remarks over the years, and now he says he was right along.

Santorum was asked about his long-ago warning about “man on dog” sex at a Colorado conservative gathering the same day the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage.

“What I say is if you have the right to consensual sexual activity, then it opens the door to a variety of different things — and this ruling did it,” Santorum said.

“This ruling followed up with what I said would happen if the Supreme Court ruled the way it did, and the Supreme Court has followed their line of reasoning that I identified very early on that if consensual sexual activity is a constitutional right, then we have to – it leads logically, as you saw in the court’s opinion, that all things, that all the rights come with that,” he added.

He was asked whether the Obergefell v. Hodges decision would open the door to polygamy, and Santorum said he didn’t see why not.

“(The ruling) has certainly opened the door for a variety of other things that are going to happen,” Santorum said.

Published

President Donald Trump lashed out at former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates on Wednesday, just minutes before she was set to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“Sally Yates has zero credibility,” Trump tweeted, as Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was delivering his opening statement.

“She was a part of the greatest political crime of the Century, and ObamaBiden knew EVERYTHING! Sally Yates leaked the General Flynn conversation? Ask her under oath. Republicans should start playing the Democrats game!“

Graham is accusing former Justice Department officials of abusing their power by surveilling some Trump’s associates during their investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election.

Trump makes pitch on Catholic TV: ‘Catholics like their Second Amendment so I saved the Second Amendment’

Published

on

President Donald Trump this week made a pitch to Catholic voters based on his assertion that he "saved the Second Amendment."

In a Tuesday interview with the Catholic TV network EWTV, correspondent Tracy Sabol asked Trump if he had a message for Catholic voters.

"Well, I think anybody having to do with, frankly, religion, but certainly the Catholic Church, you have to be with President Trump when it comes to pro-life, when it comes to all of the things, these people are going to take all of your rights away, including Second Amendment," the president said, "because, you know, Catholics like their Second Amendment. So I saved the Second Amendment."

Published

CNN's Jim Acosta must have struck a nerve with President Donald Trump.

Trump angrily denied Acosta's reporting that some members of the president's coronavirus task force were alarmed that Trump kept trying to change the subject during Tuesday's meeting about the deadly pandemic, and sources familiar with the White House meeting feared he still doesn't understand the gravity of the situation.

“He still doesn’t get it,” the source said. “He does not get it.”

As some members of the task force tried to stress the dire nature of the situation to the president during the meeting, the source said Trump repeatedly attempted to change the subject.
