Crowd Chants “USA! USA!” as Men Kiss During Santorum Rally

 

A group of five twenty-somethings were removed from a Rick Santorum rally Friday at the Liberty Heights Christian Academy after chanting

Mic check! Mic check! Mr. Santorum!

while two men in the group began to kiss. The crowd booed at first then began to chant

USA! USA!

as the freedom of expressionators were led out by security. I’d like to think chanting our country’s initials was meant as a show of solidarity with the couple and their friends, since this is the land of the free, but it was a pro-Santorum rally, so sadly my optimism is misplaced.

I do think this could spawn a trend of straight/unmarried and LGBT couples–married or not– making out passionately en masse at any GOP rally. But minus the mic check to make it, like you know, more polite.

Heck, at a Fred Karger or Ron Paul rally such expression of freedom would be embraced; and at a Romney, Newt, or Santorum event, LGBT kissing should serve to remind the candidates that in America we have LGBT Republicans, while emphasizing to the other attendees that America is not like those nasty furrin ray-jeems that kill folks for being different. Why in his speech before the guys started kissing, Santorum was saying that America is an exceptional country. Time to prove it.

Santorum likes to whip his fecal matter fetishizing followers, many of whom have likely consumed the lube of alcohol beforehand, into a frothy mix of hatred.

“USA! USA! USA!”

What a vapid chant. I miss the classics, like “Seig Heil!”

Why are you never at these rallies when you’re needed.

Interesting – Santorum’s followers have conflated bigotry and minority group intolerance, based in their religious views, with patriotic fervor.

Where have we seen this before?

Who kisses who: not a concern of government.

No government intrusion! Except in those cases where we are talking about non white, non male, non conservative, non Christians. All those ones need to be locked away in a zoo.

The thing is, the conservatives don’t see the irony or hypocrisy at all. I’ve always said one needs to be a bit of a sociopath to be conservative. This is more evidence for that belief.

Just whistling past a graveyard.

Rick should point out that gay men have a Constitutional Obligation to learn to speak Puerto Rican.

Wikipedia:

Today, however, [Arlington Heights] is largely Roman Catholic, boasting three very large churches of the Roman Catholic Rite: St. James (founded 1902—now home to 4,600 registered families), St. Edna (2,800 registered families), and Our Lady of the Wayside (3,100 registered households).

The racial makeup of the village [in 2000] was 90.56% White, 0.96% African American, 0.08% Native American, 5.98% Asian, 0.04% Pacific Islander, 1.19% from other races, and 1.19% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 4.46% of the population.

About 1.6% of families and 2.5% of the population were below the poverty line, including 2.0% of those under age 18 and 3.0% of those age 65 or over.

American Fascists are so well behaved.

There are so many potential examples to choose from, but the one Santorum and his followers remind me of most is Francisco Franco’s Falangist Spain.

Just a technical question: Do Catholic priests kiss the young boys they molest or do they simply, well, bugger them?


wsmoke | Sunday March 18, 2012 11:39 am 12

probably just bugger them, Santorum should be required to explain how his catholic beliefs can be justified when his church leaders are performing gay acts in church. Being Santorum would be extremely scary. Constantly afraid of women, afraid of the lgbt community, even though lots of the catholic priests are part of it, having nightmares about man on dog, believing women are only a sperm-receptacle for pro-creation. And the scariest of all, knowing there are people willing to follow and support him.

I look forward to kiss-ins at Santorum rallies. With the participants and their supporters chanting “USA! USA!” as the couples embrace.
