Video: Santorum Condones Assassinations of Foreign Scientists

Rick Santorum says U.S. needs to send a clear message to nuclear scientists

At a campaign stop on Tuesday in Greenville, former U.S. Sen. .

After being introduced by U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., Santorum blasted the Obama Administration for its handling of the Middle East and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Santorum was especially forceful regarding countries who pose a nuclear threat, advocating for the selective assassination of scientists from countries such as Russia, North Korea and Iran.

While the United States has been at odds with North Korea and Iran in recent years over nuclear weapons, it signed a treaty with Russia in 2010 to reduce their respective arsenals.

So much for the sanctity of life he advocates. I wonder where Jesus said it was okay to kill. Rick Santorum (google Santorum) can you show us those passages in the New Testament? (crickets)

Even the RC church is not as idiotic as Saintorum.

Words cannot express the revulsion I feel for this man and his comments......at least not words for print.

This guy keeps sounding like some drunk in a bar with a sixth grade education rambling on and on about if he were king.

This lunatic belives in killing scientists today, what is tommorow, college professors who teach nucler science and high school teachers? He is willing to kill doctores and reseachers who inviolve in reproductive science since he is a pro life. And what is next the economist who are involve in developing theory of internation trade and open market since he believes on bringing a manufacturing job to America?

Politician who talk like that is a coward. The people of Pennsylvania was wise to kick you out from the US Senate. You should serve Satan not God. Because God has already kick you out too. You are an embarrassment.

Very selective "pro life" stance from Mr. Santorum. This reveals just how deep his "Christianity" goes - not even skin deep!
Benjamin Blom October 26, 2011 at 07:24 PM
Scientists, being part of the 'intellectual elite' that the tea-baggers fear and distrust so vehemently, have always been fair game for them; what makes Santorum's death-threats any different? "Christian values" to the radical right are but expedients.

Interestingly this man can still receive the Sacraments in the Catholic Church. Pure hypocrisy. Take note US Catholic Bishops!

Santorum - just another holier than thou type who is all in favor of protecting life and then all in favor of bombing the hell out of people he hates. Another hateful, hateful person -- another hypocrite. I just cannot understand how anyone could support such hate. How can he possibly have followers?
Mary Towey October 27, 2011 at 03:07 AM
The worst thing about this moron's verbal and intellectual diarrhea is that such a "policy" would leave AMERICAN scientists vulnerable to murder/assassination. And the countries he's talking about are FAR more ready to use assassination as a political tool than we are...

He never thought it through did he? You did. Thank you.

Santorum is huge Fail!!! Remember, he told Pennsylvanians that he was giving up his campaign fundraising for Senate to go to the side of Terri Schiavo (a critical and severely brain damaged young woman) and pray with the family. But while down there with her, he was secretly fundraising using this tragic family story as an opportunity to get some free cash for his campaign.

When your grandkids are cooked in their backyards from a nuke shipped from Iran.....you will still be unable to see the common sense spoken here by Rick.....wake up before its too late!
clearfield October 28, 2011 at 01:22 AM
I don't believe sickofpcness has predicted anything that I would call real. I do believe that our anti-ballistic missiles systems are very sophisticated. In addition, the facts are that the Iranian missile delivery systems can only reach the farthest edges of the Middle East and would never be able to cross the ocean. So please, when making a comment stick with the facts, and reality. That is often the problem with many GOP supporters, they love to fabricate their own reality and weave it into whole cloth.

Oh, by the way, if one's grandkids are going to get cooked in their backyards, more than likely it will be as a result of a depleted ozone layer and the rays of the sun will give them skin cancer.
