Rick Santorum hits back hard at Dan Savage: He represents the “lowest debasement of public discourse”

Rick Santorum appeared yesterday on Steve Malzberg’s radio show to respond to Dan Savage’s disgusting comments last week on Bill Maher’s HBO show “Real Time”. In case you missed those comments, I have posted the clip below for your, um, edification. To paraphrase: Savage said he wouldn’t mind having forceful gay sex on Santorum, just to set him straight on his politics. Or something.

Make no mistake about it, Savage is one sick little creep.

Needless to say, Santorum was fired up and really hit back hard at Savage and the rest of Bill Maher’s vulgar panel. They all got a hearty laugh out of Savage’s filthy rant – I don’t think Maher had a single conservative on the panel (would’ve been a nice time to have Andrew Breitbart booked). Santorum also laid into the media for routinely letting liberals get away with this kind of garbage, and worse than that, applauding people like Savage because they happen to be bashing conservatives, which fits their ideological agenda.

All in all, this is Santorum at his best – unapologetically defending conservatism and traditional family values. Great job!

    I guess I don’t understand why anyone would watch Bill Maher. Granted, I am a conservative, so I wouldn’t be watching him anyway. Still, this kind of talk, even on “paid” television, is just beyond the pale. I stand by his right to do this, but I also question why anyone is watching him. And as for Mr. Savage, if he is indicative of what I might find at a Gay Pride Parade, I do believe I will continue to avoid them.

    Leaving aside for a minute and all the tangential elements of the discussion lets focus on the original subject. Before the ideologies of Darwin and Marx and the advent of what we call moral relativism we relied on natural law, logic and what some called right reason. To make the argument for the equivalence of same sex marriage and the homosexual equal rights agenda we should first begin with the premise authored by early philosophers. Cicero states “There is a true law, a right reason,
    conformable to nature, universal, unchangeable, eternal, whose commands urge us
    to duty, and whose prohibitions restrain us from evil”. G. K. Chesterton also states “You can only find truth with logic if you
    have already found truth without it”. By allowing the assumption of homosexuality as being proper, natural, universal, moral and unchangeable we have already lost the arguments. If society would once again apply truths to discussions of what is and what isn’t proper the universal truths of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness would be equally applied to include homosexuals without extraneous falsely applied moral relativistic doctrines. If children are to be taught about the homosexual lifestyle let it begin with the premise that homosexuals are created in the same image and likeness of God with the understanding that homosexual activity is not and never has been an activity condusive to good order or beneficial to the traditions of society. Rick Santorum certainly has Right Reason on his side along with the rest of the social conservatives trying to fight back against the tide of moral relativists.

      The bible, Torah, and Koran all say homosexuality is wrong.

    Why conservative sites link to Mediate is beyond me. Oh, wait, no it isn’t.

    Savage has had it out for Santorum for years. I remember about 5 years ago he had a contest amongst his readers to give a meaning to “Santorum” and what they finally decided upon was that Santorum was now the word used to describe the liquid mess that leaks out of a gay mans nether region after they have had unprotected activities. Yet, if a conservative would ever say anything remotely close to this about any liberal there would be million man marches, harrassment charges, court cases,etc..etc…

    It seems to me that nobody really gave a hoot about gays until they started to try to foster the idea that it was “natural”. Ok, fine, let it be that way for you but don’t try to convince ME that is natural. It’s just isn’t and never will be. A gay world ceases to exist.

    By the way, thanks to all of you for your prayers last week, they got me through a tough time. I didn’t get the results I was hoping for, but what will be, will be. You Scoopers are the best!

    I thought we were supposed to be watching our language after the Giffords shooting.

    We need every single Republican candidate for president go on rants like this every time liberal news journalists hint at this disgusting dialogue. That includes “gotcha” questions during CNN debates or interviews whose purpose is to marginalize candidates. Like Obama ignores Fox News, its time for conservatives to ignore all of these outlets.

    BS

      The new civility is like compromise in Congress. It applies only to conservatives, didn’t you get the memo?

    Bill Mayer is a symptom of all that is wrong with the population that voted for obama.

    Thank G-d that America still have men of honor that stand up against evil.

    Overall, nobody cares about Maher, or takes his views seriously. Bill’s documentary was a flop and a laughable piece of nonsense. His panel are just as meager and of no importance. That segment, like the rest of his shows, had insignificant ratings. Who cares?

    I heard that Bachman had to be taken to the hospital, due to serious migraines or something. The article on Drudge had a title that said, ” due to pill use?” I read the article and it didn’t say anything about what pills or how many. The journalist seemed to make an issue out of a non-issue.

      Yup. Notice the currency, too. 2010. You typically only have to go back a few hours to catch Obama at something that renders him unfit for public office.

      Only to folks willing to self-identify as weak-minded. Pandering to the “faces of meth” crowd is like playing in the sewer. But go ahead, laugh out loud so we can see you.

  • Maher is a jerk and a moron. Satanic is the word that comes to mind, when he’s trying to make sophomoric humor (and worse) of common sense and traditional values. I have never watched his show, and I never will, God willing!

    So sad that this hate speech is allowed to masquarade as humor, if the right used anything even 1/10th as salacious as this, there would be prosecutions and lawsuits filed to be sure… Now that the gay community has won a more elevated place in our society, they now rush to dictate the mores of the entire populous in their own image. The 3 1/2% wants now to rule the 96 1/2% .

  • DCGere

    Good for Rick for firing back. Savage is a nasty bully that needs to be put in his place and have his mouth washed out with soap.

  • HIT EM HARD RICKY BABY!

    But Rick, srsly, hop on the Cain train :)… plenty of room and maybe even a position in the govt when he wins, hehehe.

  • Also regarding the natural gay-gene.

    According to evolutionary theory, random mutation and natural selection produce change in populations, like the gay-gene as the homosexual agenda would have you believe. But lets dig deeper.

    Evolution only favors populations that can sexually reproduce thus passing their survivable genetics onto the next generation. Homosexuals by advocating for the gay-gene they have actually created the notion, and defending it I might add, of their own destruction. Although they will not admit it, homosexuals by advocating for the gay gene advocate for their own destruction as a population.

    I’m glad this is getting talked about – Hannity covered it last night as well. All I really want is for the networks that use Maher as a political analyst (CNN,ABC) get a petition from the GOP Presidential candidates that if they want to host a GOP Presidential debate, Maher must be removed from commentary until after the 2012 election.

    Bill Maher should not be honored with the title of political analyst.

  • I just don’t get it… I canceled my hbo because of maher. Their must be a lot of sick people here in America. The democrak head party is dead. When communist openly suport them, what does that tell me about you?

  • Josie

    Why isn’t anyone calling for their jobs! How absolutely disgusting to call this reporting. This is how debasing women and values begins with no one doing anything about it. Call the station and demand Maher and Savage get terminated.

    As a proud TP member this has decided for me to give my vote 100% to Bachmann.

    Isaiah 59:14 “And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street and equity cannot enter. Yea, truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey…” This is happening now and can be seen here!

    Isaiah 60:2 “For, behold the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.” This is also beginning to happen!

    Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil: that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Isn’t this familiar?

    Romans 1:20-32
    20 “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

    21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

    22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

    23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

    24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

    25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

    26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

    27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another: men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

    28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

    29 being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

    30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

    31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

    32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things, are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”

    The reprobate mind as mentioned in verse 28, is described from there through verse 32.

    When the angels smote the sodomites in Sodom and Gomorrah in Genesis 19:11, they still “wearied themselves to find the door” to Lot’s house even though a miracle was just performed in front of their eyes! This is an example of the type of spirit they have when confronted by something they don’t like.

    II Peter 2:6 “And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:…”

    …and so as it was in the days of Noah… parphrasing here.

    Genesis 6:5 “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually,…”

    I couldn’t have said it better myself… so I didn’t!

      Good old Rick playing the victim again, hey Rick, next time you wanna start a fight don’t be so shocked when someone punches back! Rick started this war with Savage.

      Two great quotes from the aftermath

      “Conservatives beat up on liberals all the time,” he said. “And conservatives make their attacks personal because they have an easier time running on ‘who you’d wanna have a beer with,’ as their policies are unpopular. So they demonize their opponents. They’re bullies. And, like all bullies, they react with shock and horror when someone they’re beating the shit out of has the nerve to take swing at ’em.”

      “If he was honest, he’d admit that the Google thing has been good for
      him–it’s allowed him to portray himself as a victim in the style of
      Sarah Palin,” Savage said. “It’s not getting him any traction, but
      that’s because he’s a bad candidate and a repulsive politician. But if
      you look at his press over the last 18 months, grousing about his Google
      problem is his chief talking point.”
