Rick Santorum On Obama, Abortion: “Almost Remarkable For A Black Man’ To Say We Can Decide Who’s A Person”

I tell you folks, I don’t make this stuff up, I only report it. Former Republican Senator Rick Santorum was recently on CSN News to discuss the topic of abortion, and President Obama’s views on the subject. We all know that Santorum is a very vocal pro-lifer, which I have no problem with. I can even understand why he might disagree with the stance that President Obama and others have taken on abortion.

He loses me when he decides to bring race into the equation to use in the context of the conversation that he is having. Santorum cannot understand why President Obama will not answer whether a “human life” is protected by the Constitution at the moment of conception. I can even understand his frustrations…but then he says this:

The question is — and this is what Barack Obama didn’t want to answer — is that human life a person under the Constitution? And Barack Obama says no. Well if that person — human life is not a person, then — I find it almost remarkable for a black man to say, ‘we’re going to decide who are people and who are not people

Below is the clip of this moron in action:

I cannot understand why the race of President Obama has anything to do with his views on abortion. Is Santorum implying that there is some truth to the racist and stereotypical thinking that stated that African Americans were less than human? Does he believe that it is not the black mans place to even have an opinion on when human life begins or ends? This type of talk doesn’t surprise me at all…especially coming from a guy like Santorum. I guess its at least good that he is open, upfront, and honest about his racist beliefs. I have more respect for a racist who at least makes his views known, instead of concealing them.

I wont sit here and equate all Republicans with the views of Santorum, but lets be honest….more Republicans than Rick Santorum subscribe to this thinking, but they keep it to themselves and would never state it publicly. Good luck with Republicans and recruitment of minorities…make them feeel right at home, why don’t you.
