OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. - A rally for Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum was disrupted for 20 minutes on Sunday by Occupy Wall Street protestors chanting, "Get your hate out of our state," and "Pro-life, pro-war, what are you fighting for?"

~snip~

Santorum supporters clashed with the protestors and tried to shout them down with "We pick Rick!" One protester was shoved, but there were no other physical altercations. Santorum was calm, and preached tolerance, but also suggested the protestors should get jobs.

Wait, what? Santorum preached tolerance? Dear writer Rebecca Kaplan of CBSNews.com, I beg to differ! The guys entire career is built on a message of intolerance, saying that Santorun preaches a "message of tolerance" is like saying that Jeffery Dahmer was preaching a message of dietary recommendations.

Here's some footage from the event . . .

More below the fold . . .

And what kind of message of tolerance is it to suggest someone should just "Go get a job"? You know how I can tell that Rick Santorum is totally unqualified to be President? His jobs plan is to yell "GET A JOB!" at America.

But seriously, three cheers for Oklahoma! You couldn't possibly call the folk who showed up to stand up to Rick Santorum's brand of bankster approved bigotry a bunch of hippies, it's Oklahoma! Finding hippies in Oklahoma is like trying to find Ted Nugent at a library, it just isn't going to happen.

What is really telling is how Santorum turned his attack from the official Wall Street greed protesters to the official candidate of Wall Street, Willard Romney . . .

In the general election, whoever our Republican nominee is, isn't going to be able to outspend Barack Obama 6- or 7- or 8-to-1 to win an election. They're going to have to win this election being outspent. Governor Romney has never won a state in this country where he was outspent. ... What does that tell you about his ability to motivate and rally the people of America for the big change we need coming into the general election?"

  Well THANK YOU for the ammunition, Mr. Santorum, that's a very good point! I'm glad to see that you are as dead-set against the overpowering influence Wall Street and corporate money has in our politics as I am! And I'm sure, as a true culture war conservative, you will totally maintain ideological consistency in your remarks, being the little guy in the GOP race against big money Mittens . . .
  “I’m not about equality of result when it comes to income inequality. There is income inequality in America. There always has been and, hopefully, and I do say that, there always will be.”

  If you needed proof that religious people are totally screwing themselves on behalf of Wall Street by siding with the GOP, I submit for your consideration one Rick Santorum, who literally fights for the rich guy who is kicking his ass with big money.

   Idiot.

  So let's celebrate a win for the real little guys, the only true populists out there. "Get your hate out of our state," and "Pro-life, pro-war, what are you fighting for?" I want the bumperstickers.

Viva, Occupy!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
