Re: Santorum: declaring war on heavy metal
I thought the entire point of this thread was to illustrate the fact that shit like this being said by a republican nominee wouldn't surprise most people, since the republican nominees say shit that is equally insane all the time.
Granted, I was wrong since the OP thought it was legit. But the fact that some intelligent people in here (LN) didn't get finished reading that and go "What the fuck, that doesn't seem right. Let me go check some other links" illustrates what I thought the point of this thread was pretty well.
Hell, the main reason I knew is because I obsessively double check almost everything that comes from a source I'm not familiar with. I wasn't about to call shenanigans or anything when I first started reading it. The only part that I thought was a bit too ridiculous was the internment camp part. Other than that I could see Rick Santorum saying most of that shit. I mean, fucking Rick Santorum. Saying ridiculously stupid shit is kind of his thing.
Add that to the fact that no sane person should give a shit about any of the republican nominees at this point, since everyone's opinion of them shouldn't be able to be any lower it already is and nothing any of them say at this point should be able to counter-act all the idiotic and horrible shit they've already stated, I can see why people wouldn't have bothered to verify the legitimacy of this story.
