Longshot candidate for the 2012 Republican Nomination, Rick Santorum, realizes if he wishes to remain relevant in a field of loons and reality TV stars he’s going to have start making some ridiculously false and insane statements. Former Republican Senator of Pennsylvania, Rick Santorum, a rabid homophobe (yet whose last name means “anal froth from gay sex”) and surely the biggest GOP closeted homosexual at present, seems to feel that there exists a large amount of planned parenthood clinics in areas with sizable concentrations of minorities.

“Well, look at — and I know they dispute this — certainly a lot of evidence that the location of their clinics happen to be in places, historically places, where there are high concentrations of minorities for example,” Santorum explained to a gaggle of reporters after a foreign policy speech he made in Washington Friday. “

The placement of clinics and the targeted advertising may be a bastion of what Santorum called Planned Parenthood’s “horrific origins,” but he said much of the “poisonous” nature of the organization has remained even as it has claimed to, he said, “transform over time.”

Rick Santorum has probably visited these places with minorities as many times as Donald Trump has voted. After all, the GOP has “always” worked endlessly to implement policies that” better” the lives of “poor minorities”. But Rick Santorum loves children, and he will stop at nothing to become the President of the Fetus. Mr.Santorum makes up a brand of social conservatives who seek to exaggerate Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger’s support for eugenics with claims of “black genocide”. Naturally, Santorum and company use the fear of fallacy to hoodwink unsuspecting minorities into hating Planned Parenthood.

 It is well-known that abortion makes up but a modicum (and that is a factual statement) of what Planned Parenthood actually does (just don’t tell Senator Kyl), and the tax dollars its receive are used only cover family planning and reproductive health for women. But that pesky fact shouldn’t stop uber-conservative Jesus Freaks in the Republican party from making asses of themselves. Lord knows Donald Trump has given them new and inventive ways  to do it.

Rick Santorum recently called on Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels (R) to sign a bill in his state that would “defund” Planned Parenthood for Hoosiers, pointing to what he calls the group’s shady past and sketchy present. As opposed to the impeccably squeaky clean  DC based conservative christian group, The Family, which has been instrumental in attacking gays when its own members aren’t too destroying the sanctity of marriage. 

“I can’t imagine any other organization with its roots as poisonous as the roots of Planned Parenthood getting federal funding of any kind,” Santorum said. “This is an organization that was founded on the eugenics movement, founded on racism — I mean, it’s horrific. It’s origins are horrific. And you can say, ‘well it’s not that anymore.’ It’s not far from where it was in my opinion.”

 Again, Santorum is going to have to increase production in bat sh#t is he wishes to remain competitive in the republican presidential race.

While Rick Santorum may think he’s as cool “with the blacks” as Donald Trump, Planned Parenthood’s Director of African-American Media, Veronica Byrd, released this pointed rebuttal in response to Santorum’s baseless fear-mongering:

Rick Santorum has stooped to using race as a wedge issue to launch a highly political attack ON Planned Parenthood. The truth is that the doctors and nurses who deliver care at Planned Parenthood’s more than 800 health centers provide women from every community with basic preventive care, including lifesaving breast and cervical cancer screenings, Pap tests, annual exams, testing and treatment of sexually transmitted infections, and HIV testing. Like other American women, African-American women understand that Planned Parenthood works every day to make sure that all women have access to high quality, affordable healthcare.  

Adding even more pesky facts to Santorum’s patently false accusations, a study on the placement of planned parenthood clinics concluded that fewer than one in 10 abortion clinics are located in predominantly African-American neighborhoods, or those in which the majority of residents are black.

 Sorry Rick. It looks like you’re going to have to amp up the bat sh#t if you wish to beat out Tim Pawlenty in the who is the most white and boring Republican candidate running for oval office.
