The outrage mob is trying to get Rick Santorum FIRED from CNN for recent ‘racist’ comments

Rick Santorum has found himself in a leftist controversy over statements he made recently at Young America’s Foundation. I hadn’t seen his statements before because, honestly, they aren’t controversial. But theses race-baiting leftists are in an absolute tizzy over this and want him fired. Chris Cuomo had Rick Santorum on last night to hold him accountable or something.

If you watch the clip, and you should, Santorum suggested that America is unique in that it’s culture didn’t really evolve like many other countries which have been around for a really long time. He said that Europeans came here, in large part, because they wanted to be able to practice their faith freely and thus birthed a nation from a clean slate. He said there wasn’t much here other than Native Americans, “but candidly there isn’t much Native American culture in American culture.”

The last part in quotes is what the left is up in arms about and they are claiming, as Cuomo put it, that Santorum was trying to “erase diversity in the name of some white Christian right”, because there is, in some areas, a heavier influence of Native American culture within the US.

Santorum quickly explained that he wasn’t talk about culture in the more general sense. He said he misspoke by using the word ‘culture’, but was referring specifically to “the founding of our country” and the principles embodied in our founding. He didn’t apologize, thankfully, but just clarified what he really meant and how he wasn’t trying to demean Native Americans or forget what was done to them in the past or treat them as ‘other’, which many on the left are accusing him of doing.



Then Cuomo attacked Santorum, accusing him of ‘othering’ people, like homosexuals, by comparing them to beastiality and so on, saying ‘it seems like this is part of your party now’. And of course he took a dig at Trump.

Santorum defended himself from all of that nonsense, but the left is still upset that Santorum didn’t apologize for his comments. Don Lemon was furious and apologized to all of his audience that got triggered over the Santorum interview, raking Santorum over the coals for not apologizing:

 
Some on the left are upset that Cuomo didn’t call Santorum on the carpet for not apologizing and are demanding that CNN fire Santorum:

 
I expect that the outrage mob will get their way and that CNN will fire Santorum as a contributor, because that’s just what happens these days. The outrage mob demands something and the left caves. It doesn’t matter that what Santorum said was reasonable and accurate:
