Rick Santorum Describes First Amendment As … French Guillotine?

  history is for crazy people

What is loopy church lady Rick Santorum whining about now? As he goes crazier, in public, Santorum has stopped bothering with traditional approaches to speaking and now just tosses out “They” a couple of times, mentions religion and then throws in France, for weird measure — and he pronounces “France” as guillotine. It’s marvelous. But he is attacking the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution here, is he not? Will Rick Santorum finally demand the repeal of the Bill of Rights?

Here is a transcript of the actual words formed by Weird Rick’s pouty little mouth:

They are taking faith and crushing it. Why? Why? When you marginalize faith in America, when you remove the pillar of God-given rights, then what’s left is the French Revolution. What’s left is the government that gives you right, what’s left are no unalienable rights, what’s left is a government that will tell you who you are, what you’ll do and when you’ll do it. What’s left in France became the guillotine.

Okay! Next up for Santorum: Day care is the Spanish Inquisition. No, wait, the Spanish Inquisition is a good thing to Opus Dei nutballs like Santorum. Uhh, who knows, tune in tomorrow? [Think Progress via The Awl]
