Video: Rick Santorum’s Astoundingly Anti-Science Rant
I commented yesterday that it was almost unbelievable how crazy the right wing rhetoric is getting, and here’s yet another example from reactionary candidate Rick Santorum, speaking in Oklahoma and telling the crowd that the science of global warming is a myth, now totally disproven and rotting in the dustbin of history, and the left uses science to make people feel guilty in order to control them. And fracking is perfectly safe.
No joke: Santorum Takes on ‘Environmental Terror’.
Santorum’s disdain for environmentalists was palpable and largely shared by the crowd of nearly 1,500 people here at the Meridian Convention Center. Perhaps sensing he was preaching to the choir, Santorum expounded upon his position that manmade global warming is a myth and a plot by the left to take freedoms away from the American people.
“This was a politicization of science,” Santorum said, of the science behind global warming. “You hear all the time, the left – ‘Oh, the conservatives are the anti-science party.’ No we’re not. We’re the truth party. The absurdity and the politicization and the manipulation of data, why? Because the left is always looking for a way to control you. They’re always trying to make you feel guilty so you’ll give them power so they can lord it over you.”
