Racist Much? Santorums Racist Remarks In Iowa [VIDEO]
Wow. Rick Santorum, in a desperate attempt to win over the 91% white state of Iowa made comments during his campaign that many deemed racist. His largest pitch was stating that if he were elected to the presidency, he would eliminate welfare, stating:
"I don’t want to make black people’s lives better by giving them other people’s money. I want to give them the opportunity to go out and earn their money and provide for themselves and their families. The best way to do that is to get the manufacturing sector of the economy rolling.”
Blinded Iowan voters clapped and cheered him on. However, it is a fact that white Americans account for that largest percentage of welfare payout each month. The definition of welfare is defined as government as benefits funded by tax dollars, such as Social Security, food stamps, veterans benefits, Medicare, Medicaid, unemployment and corporate bailouts.
This is the same man that said that President Obama should be "Pro-Life" because he's black.
Do you think Santorum represents the majority of the views of conservatives? Or do you think he's just a bigot?
