Idiot Santorum Supporters Chant ‘USA’ at Smooching Men

What’s this, two men interrupting Rick Santorum’s banal rambling to lock lips in a simple act of protest against homophobia? ACTION TEAM FORCE PATRIOTISM TO THE RESCUE. Watch the excitable wingnuts spring into action and holler “U-S-A” over and over in a heroic attempt to ward off decency and tolerance from their midst. How about some finger pointing, would finger pointing help, too?

This lady is on it, oh boy is she:

Mission accomplished! The kissing men were kicked out. Please resume your speech about fundamental American values, Rick Santorum:

“We need a president who understands that America is the greatest country in the history of the world and what we’ve done across this country, across this world, it’s not oppress, it’s not invade, we are not invaders, we are not people that seek gain of territory, oil, property,” Santorum said. “What we seek is security for ourselves and liberty and prosperity for others and it’s nothing to apologize for.”

Good job, team. Decency and common sense were defeated once again. [Patch/YouTube]

    Phew, we threw out the disgusting sodomites, now let's all cheer for Rick Santorum's bravery for not running away when faced with teh gay. He wasn't even wearing a bio-hazard suit! Such bravery!

    1. HistoriCat

      Well, at least he didn't hide in the bushes or call 911 like some people we could mention…

  2. BlueStateLibel

    "…we are not people that seek gain of territory, oil, property,” Santorum said." There are some native Americans on the phone who would like to speak with you about that, Mr. Santorum, also a few dead presidents.

    1. OurDailyBread

      It's too bad that native Americans weren't able to enforce a tough show-me-your-papers law.

      1. chicken_thief

        If they had only passed the "Cherokee only" for all official transactions and documents it might have slowed down the influx of whites a little. Hindsight is always 20-20….

    2. MadBrahms

      And the Chagossians, if anyone thinks we just stopped after the 19th century ended. (USA! USA!)

  3. facehead

    How can they complain about two gay dudes kissing in the audience with all that yucky Santorum all over the stage?

  4. DCBloom

    So…. don't know if this is true, but the buzz on the twitterz is that these guys weren't even gay. They just wanted to make a point. I really hope it's true.

    1. Lascauxcaveman

      Yeah, they didn't look like they were really into it. A public beej, while a bit more problematic, would have been a lot more convincing.

  5. Lascauxcaveman

    Two guys kissing in public? LOL, that is so ghey.

    But anyway, +1 for gay hockey fans.

  6. MarcelleMarceau

    Regarding a related values topic: Why hasn't Santorum been asked how he is able to distinguish between garden variety porn and obscene hard-core porn? What has he actually seen and how many times?

    1. AbandonHope

      I'm sure his extensive library is indexed by subject and cross-referenced. For research purposes, of course.

    2. C_R_Eature

      Simple!

      Not Porn: Juggs, Catholic High School Girls In Trouble, Cheerleader Sluts, Girl Pages in Bondage, MILF Hunter, Horny Housewives.

      Porn: The Ellen Show.

  7. SheriffRoscoe

    She points at us, and we, as gay men point back at her. I mean look at that haircut.

      1. SheriffRoscoe

        I was going to say she looks like an old lesbian. But that would be an insult to old lesbians.

      2. Dashboard Buddha

        Except for those times he had to go to agricultural fairs in Nebraska. But hey, what happens in Omaha, stays in Omaha.

    1. Data Exactly

      The first few people to start chanting were saying "U R Gay", then, once it was adopted by a larger portion of the audience, it became "USA", it sounds like. Good catch, there.

      1. MadBrahms

        Is it bad that I find the pseudo-Marxist ramblings of the septic avenger sort of arousing?

    1. AbandonHope

      Nah, that's fine, because they're property of the men, and if two women are going at it that just means they're super horny, amirite? At least that's what Santorum supporters glean from their obscene hardcore porn, I wager.

  8. SpiderCrab

    Santorum has been playing the Seamus-the-Irish Setter card quite often, lately. How long will the Romney campaign be able to abstain from the nuclear option?

    1. Callyson

      The nuclear option? Does that mean Mittens' people have video footage?
      Can't decide if that thought makes me happy or makes me want to vomit…

      CROWD: A witch! A witch! A witch! We've got a witch! A witch!
      VILLAGER #1: We have found a witch, might we burn her?
      CROWD: Burn her! Burn!
      BEDEMIR: How do you know she is a witch?
      VILLAGER #2: She's on Birth Control!
      BEDEMIR: Bring her forward

  9. Crank_Tango

    Seriously, we can't use the word "r-e-t-a-r-d-e-d" in any context now? That's fuckin gay as hell.

    1. DCBloom

      "R" word definition = A slowing down or hindering of progress; a delay

      Seems like Santorum would like to delay our progress into the 21st century, so….

    2. C_R_Eature

      It would be very helpful if we had a Reference Text. A Robert's Rules for Ret@rds, if you will.

        1. finallyhappy

          no, use of that word just shows you have a language problem. Why is it so important for people here to use that word? As I have said before, I see it used by kids, drunk teens/men and generally uneducated people. I expect more from people posting here- perhaps I have overestimated the abilities of some Wonketteers.

          1. Negropolis

            A bus of dubious proportions? I'm doing it again! Somebody stop me; for the love of god, stop me! I'll tell you what hell is; hell is separation from Wonkette for even a day.

          2. C_R_Eature

            A differently-sized bus?

            You'll know when it's all gone Too Far when Wonkette-isims begin to creep into your everyday conversions and professional writing. Take it from me.

          3. PhilippePetain

            I believe a good portion of the posts here are irreverently lampooning stupidity while/by actively participating in the same. It's something that the kids are doing these days.

            I sincerely hope no one on this blog ever starts expecting more from the comments section.

  10. Jukesgrrl

    I've been waiting for the Love-In to come back in style. I'm sorry it was meant with such a lack of appreciation. Maybe they'll get a check in the mail from Yoko.

    1. AbandonHope

      Cows 'r okay cuz they's female. Horses are fine too if they's mares, and probably also fine if they's geldings. But two FELLAS kissin'? That ain't right, y'all.

      1. chicken_thief

        Unless of course, the fella's are from the Dominican Republic and get paid for their services.

  11. BlueStateLibel

    That certainly was some heroic finger pointing. "Ooo,ooo, Herb, they're kissin', Herb, they're kissing!"

  12. pinkocommi

    Congratulations, Mr. Santorum. You have an X-men power. It is… making gay people kiss each other whenever you are around. Enjoy, you f-ing mutant. Enjoy.

  13. Schmannnity

    It makes sense that the gays left. Look carefully at the crowd; every person of color left, was removed, or did not arrive before filming.

    1. chicken_thief

      It's awesome the way Santorum can almost fill a high school gym, isn't it. And he's the one that excites the base.

      Holy fuck, Obama draws bigger crowds than that taking Sasha and Milia out for ice cream.

    2. Chichikovovich

      every person of color left, was removed, or did not arrive before filming.

      Or, most likely, was sold.

    3. Rotundo_

      It's a republican event: The only people of color allowed are entertainment and catering and cleaning. For future reference see America in the 40's.

  14. AbandonHope

    What's really funny is that you have a bunch of people pointing at two men kissing and chanting "U S A"… if I didn't know it was at a Santorum rally I'd figure that people were pointing to them as an example of Americans, not condemning them.

  15. EloquentScience

    It is so nice to see a sweet young couple practicing their personal freedoms in this country, and be cheered on by the audience, who are brought to their feet proclaiming how great the USA is.

  16. Arken

    If I were in charge of the secret gay agenda, I would definitely have my minions do this at every single Santorum rally until the convention just for the lulz. Maybe add a couple each time until the entire front row is just one big gay make-out session.

  17. Callyson

    "…we are not people that seek gain of territory, oil, property,” LGBT equality activists said. “What we seek is security for ourselves and liberty and prosperity for others and it’s nothing to apologize for.”

  18. Numbat_Dundee

    They should have gone the whole hog and done some butt sex in front of these bigots. Then they could have gone through the crowd distributing condoms and lube.

    1. stncmchnc

      Exactly, and people in the nosebleed section could say, I was so close to *santorum* it was like being in the front row. Wait, what nosebleed section?

  19. AbandonHope

    Hey, all the British wanted for India was freedom and prosperity for them, too, according to the Santorinomicon.

  20. smashedinhat

    Remember that scene is Trainspotting where the old gal is giving it to the old guy from behind? Someone seriously needs to hack the big screen with that clip. The Metamucil will be flowing down from the nose bleeds!

  21. ttommyunger

    "Idiot Santorum Supporters…." Redundancy much? BTW, read the quote, having never paid much attention to what this dipshit has ever said, I just realized that in addition to his other faults, he is a HUGE fucking liar. We're not invaders like the Ultrasound Wand is not invasive. What a massive asshole this person is.

    1. Crank_Tango

      Actually Tommy, he had his fingers crossed behind his back (and stuck up his ass) when he said that.

  22. Sharkey

    Hey, you got your homophobia in my xenophobia, you filthy fag!!

    You got your xenophobia in my homophobia, you stupid chink!

    Two great tastes that taste great together.

  23. Dashboard Buddha

    we are not invaders, we are not people that seek gain of territory, oil, property,

    You malodorous shit stain, you lying sack of dung. Goddammit, I would like just 5 minutes with you to explain just how fucking big a liar you are.

    1. Loaded_Pants

      I think it's unfair to call someone a liar when they clearly don't know what the hell they're talking about to begin with.

      I would just love to see the house-based edukation lesson plans being inflicted on his kids. Probably includes pictures of Jesus riding a dinosaur while shootin' off a pistol & carryin' the US Flag

      1. Jukesgrrl

        Interestingly, when they were ripping off the Penn Hills, PA, school district to get their curricula paid for by taxpayers, the lessons were regular secular public school edumacation, provided by the Pennsylvania Cyber School, one of the nation's earliest online charter schools. So they were willing to forego the Christian viewpoint as long as they didn't have to PAY. There's some real dedication to The Lord.

    2. Rotundo_

      I used to feel that way, but I really would *not* want anything to do with the bastard. Nothing that anyone says will make an impact on what he says or does unless it is accompanyed with a boat load of money. Honestly I don't think he believes half this crap, but he knows it is his ticket and he is going to hold onto it as long as he can turn a buck with it. You cant fix that with discussion.

      1. Dashboard Buddha

        Very true. I should have clarified that I would want 5 minutes with him in public. I certainly wouldn't be able to change his mind. But, with some good preparation, I might be able to make him look like the ass he is to other people.

  24. ThundercatHo

    I hope the crowd chants the same thing when he leaves the stage after his concession speech.

    1. finallyhappy

      Sure, I'll bring condoms to throw all over the next place he speaks. I assume that is what you were planning.

  25. user-of-owls

    “We need a president who understands that America is the greatest country in the history of the world [why do you hate Israel?] and what we’ve done across this country, across this world, it’s not oppress[except for Negroes, women, Hispanics, gays, Irish, Germans, Italians, and the poor], it’s not invade [unless you count Nicaragua (7 times), Dominican Republic (4), Haiti (4), etc.], we are not invaders, we are not people that seek gain of territory [might find some Hawaiians, Mexicans, Lakota, Massasoit, Filipinos and Samoans with a slightly different view], oil [oh, hell, where to start], property [*cough, cough* slaves *cough*]”

    1. chicken_thief

      I thought the same thing – oppression, everything except straight white males, and invade? – Ricky, how about transvaginal probes?! Would you consider that "invasive" if it was up your ass?

          1. not that Dewey

            I'm afraid you're going to have to actually walk to the nearest hipster video store to find this. When I searched on Netflix, the search returned "High School Musical", for some reason.

            Amazon has it on VHS, used, like-new, for only $1.76.

            And when you're done with that, watch Full Frontal and The Limey. I'd never laughed so hard as I did at Nicky Katt's performances in both of these fine movies.

    1. Dashboard Buddha

      Sometimes we'll invade just because you dissed our dad. Nobody puts daddy in a corner.

  26. BarackMyWorld

    OT, but: Mitt's a douchebag, part one million…

    "Before I take a stand, I want to get input [from military leaders] that are there," Romney said on "Fox News Sunday." "General [John] Allen is coming to Washington and testifying about what the conditions are," he noted, adding that some conclusions can already be drawn.

    "I think it is plain to see conditions are not going very well," Romney said. "And I lay part of the blame on that on the lack of leadership on our president."

    The former Massachusetts governor called the ongoing U.S. departure from Afghanistan a "failed withdrawal."

    Said Romney: "He likewise failed in the way we left Iraq, and this is a president who simply does not have experience in tough situations, no negotiating or leadership experience. And it is showing with the result that one might have expected with the lack of leadership."

    Fox News host Bret Baier asked Romney what he would do differently.

    "First of all, I would exercise leadership," Romney offered, suggesting he would talk to President Hamid Karzei every day.

    Mitt Romney Doesn't Have Enough Information To 'Take A Stand' On Afghanistan

    To summarize…
    Mitt: Obama is not a leader.
    Fox News: What would you do?
    Mitt: I don't know because no one's told me what to do yet.

    1. chicken_thief

      I honestly feel sorry for Mitt. In a way. The guy went from being an ok governor to wanting the POTUS position so badly that he has jettisoned every thing resembling "true beliefs".

      Though I disagree with him on everything, I have more respect for Santorum. And Ron Paul. Mitt is just fucking pathetic at this point. But then, I can't wait for the general when all Obama has to do is run non-stop ads of Romney disagreeing with Romney.

      BTW, anyone know why "Romney" is seen as a word by the Intense Debate spell check but not "Obama"? How difficult is it to add the President of the United States?

      1. Jukesgrrl

        I'm also annoyed by that spelling thing. Neither Barack nor Obama is recognized by my MS spell-check either. And, yes, the pandering IS nauseating.

      2. BarackMyWorld

        I can't feel sorry for someone so devoid of a moral compass he would betray every belief he once had just for the chance to get more power.

    2. Callyson

      Saw that too and was most annoyed by:
      Romney also criticized the U.S. decision to withdraw its forces, saying that it had led Karzai to begin distancing himself from the United States. "The president put out a specific timetable for withdrawal and end of combat operations. That is leading Mr. Karzai to take action that is self preservation in nature."
      The same Karzai who is telling US and NATO forces to leave Afghan villages? Could Romney be more ignorant of what is happening in Afghanistan?
      FFS, for the sake of our national security, not to mention world peace, we can't afford to have Mittens in the White House.

      1. Rotundo_

        The big ass is standing right in front of it. Of course most of the crowd is too so there may be room for interpretation.

      2. Loaded_Pants

        It's a verbal quirk that the hubs teases me about every time I say it. If I'm talking about something big I'll often say "big ass"-whatever-it-is-I'm-referring-to. I do the same thing with saying "tons of" when I mean "lots of".

        1. C_R_Eature

          'Scool. Lots less annoying than peppering "Y'know" or "Knowwhutahmean?" all though everything you say.

          I have a mental quirk that makes me play with words like a big smartass.

          1. Loaded_Pants

            I'm proud to say that I almost never use the word "dude" in addressing someone & have never said any statement consisting mostly of the word "like".
            Also, I have never spoke in "upspeak".
            However, much of my grammar, punctuation, and spelling has went all to hell since my schoolin' days.
            Wait, did I use "has" correctly or not? Oh, who cares?
            Maybe I'm just fucking lazy, I guess.

          2. C_R_Eature

            Well, now you've exhibited better grammar than 65% of the people I run into. I ain't no English Snob, neither. It's been a long time since I had formal English classes too, but I love the look of the language and how it feels when I use it well.
            I do a bit of writing , among other things, for a living but it's all dreadfully technical stuff. I love to come in to Wonkette and just let my head unwind, getting away with things that are absolutely Verboten in the workplace. Being able to describe someone who pissed you off as "That Cunt" is a bonus, too and I hope I never screw up and put the phrase into a work email, or worse.

  27. wvfii

    oh hey that's pretty cool. all those folks were like "hell yeah, watch those two guys kiss! right out in public! only in America, amirite?? USA! USA! USA!"

  28. anniegetyerfun

    Well, never let it be said that homophobes are also fascists/ultra nationalists who equate country with oppressing minorities, or anything.

  29. NYNYNYjr

    1- the kids don't look like they were kicked out, it looks like they just left. 2- It's was not a very gay kiss. Of course, even if you were gayly in love, it is an awkward place to kiss. 3- The two old people are great, they look like a corner detail in a Bosch painting. Maybe Breugel. I'm going to try to paint them. 4- It may have been celebratory, like some other people mentioned. Like "Yeah, look at them kiss!! USA USA!! Alright!! Whooo! Take off his pants! USA USA!"

    1. Jukesgrrl

      I was thinking of using pointing-lady as my avatar, but my outrage is for such different reasons. Love your idea about the painting detail. A huge mural of a Santorum rally could represent "21st Century Hell."

    That was totally two straight trustifarians kissing, god bless them. Way to take one for the team.

    …what we’ve done across this country, across this world, it’s not oppress, it’s not invade, we are not invaders, we are not people that seek gain of territory, oil, property.

    Rick, here is a partial list of countries/people/territories that would like to have a word with you about your working knowledge of history: Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Panama, Grenada, Vietnam, both Koreas, Japan, the Dominican Republic, Honduras, Guatemala, Argentina, Venezuela, the Philipines, Germany, Libya, Afghanistan, Russia (yes we invaded them once), Mexico, Puerto Rico, Guam, the Northern Marianas, damn near every Native American tribe that was on this continent at the dawn of the 15th century (and particularly the tribes of the Great Plains in the 1800s – I think the Lakota and the Sioux might have an opinion on this), Canada fer fuck's sake, hell, the old Confederacy – that's right, let's ask some of the nitwits who still dress up in Johnny Reb uniforms to re-enact the Battle of Testicle Ridge or whatever and claim the South is still a nation under occupation, you know, the same morons who are voting for you – and Flying Spaghetti Monster (pasta be upon him) knows how many I'm forgetting because there have been so many opportunities in the 200+ years of the existence of the greatest nation in history for us to beat up on the browns and reds and yellows and blacks of the world and station our troops on their ground to guard our precious oil or mineral rights or dusky native girls. You twit. May your wife leave you for the butchest lesbian in all the land and may all your children dedicate their lives to working in abortion clinics.

  33. MadBrahms

    "Hey, somebody want to help me get these gays out of here? They're totally screwing up my 'we don't oppress' schtick."

    (and yeah, it does look like they just left)

  34. NYCer2

    It seems to me that a German fellow with a funny mustache said the same thing about seeking security for his country when he invaded Poland.

  35. freelancer

    I think it's hilarious that they went for the Patriotism card in response to diversity or as a hedge against tolerance.

    My issue is with the Human Microphone attempt. It doesn't work unless you have MORE than 2 people. Because then it's just You Shouting, and Someone else repeating you.

  36. Negropolis

    My video playback is kind of choppy, so when I saw the black-tee dude kissing the gentleman in green with the Jesus-like locks as if it were some V-Day celebration, I just assumed it was a woman, and that you guys had got it all wrong…until I saw the scruff.

  37. Negropolis

    “We need a president who understands that America is the greatest country in the history of the world and what we’ve done across this country, across this world, it’s not oppress, it’s not invade, we are not invaders, we are not people that seek gain of territory, oil, property,” Santorum said. “What we seek is security for ourselves and liberty and prosperity for others and it’s nothing to apologize for.”

    Never have so many words, meant so little, to so few. Nineteen Eighty-Four don't got nuthin' on this bast'id.

    BW, I must admit that I have a begruding respect for the Blackhawks.

  38. Negropolis

    BTW, liberal groups should totally just show up to rallies and start chanting USA!, becasuse you know the crowd wouldn't get the joke, and would eventually drown out the speaker in chaos thinking they are doing something right. lol This is how you sabotage small-minded people.

  39. The_Trainman

    Sanatorium won't be nominated but if he is some how, good citizens will go full gay guerilla on his homophobic ass, showing up every where he does to make a fool out of him. And, kissing will be the mildest prank.

  40. amoosefloats

    Now they will all go home and watch Ellen, to them she is a safe lesbian because she gives away free stuff, like snuggies and hoverounds. In all seriousness, chanting USA when expelling a gay couple is no different than the islamafacist crap they are so scared of and want to bomb into the dark ages.

  41. upthruster

    Well, clearly the lesson here is if the country wants to encourage patriotism, there needs to be a lot more man-on-man action in public.

  42. Joey_Blau

    I just finished a book about Eisenhower as president. wow! did we kick ass… covert ops all over the world. It was great that we overthrew a grass roots reform movement in Guatemala and installed a military dictator.

    because.. Communists! and men kissing.. and dogs and cats mating.
