Crowd Chants 'Bigot' at Rick Santorum at Final NH Campaign Stop: VIDEO

Bigot

As he was arriving at his final campaign stop in Manchester, New Hampshire last night, Rick Santorum ran a gauntlet of protestors who loudly chanted "bigot" as he entered the venue.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

Chris Johnson spoke with Brett Chamberlin, a straight 20-year-old college student, who led the chanting:

“When he says that you can use the government to justify the overwhelming morality of America — which is not true because an overwhelming majority of people do support gay marriage — well then where does the government interruption stop? Can they come into your house or tell you you can’t cut your sideburns or wear mixed-fabric clothing, which are also commandants that appear side-by-side with the anti-gay comments in Leviticus. So, it’s not founded in logic; it’s not founded in a knowledge of history or a knowledge of American civics.”

  6. This author of this piece clearly had Santorum, and his supporters, in mind when he wrote it.

  7. Santorum will now think he is some kind of martyr for "the cause," that's the way the minds of people like that work.

  8. Thing is he's not just anti-gay, he's anti straight too. Anti-abortion AND anti-birth control AND anti-porn? That's not just us he's hating on.

  9. @Jack M, my thought too, I think he sees himself as misunderstood victim.

  11. More evidence that the Millennial generation is the best thing to happen to the planet in a long time. When the Boomers and Gen X are gone, the world will be a better place. And I say that as a Gen X'er.

  12. Go for it! Every stop in every city, shout it out!

  13. THAT'S the way to do it. Forget the make-gays-themselves-look-trivial glitter bombs; forget the inane, tongue-tying, time-wasting "human mics"; forget media whores like Rupaul focusing attention on themselves—this "names" the issue immediately, giving rise to reporters' explanations of what's behind it. BRAVO!

  14. This is so awesome. And, so, so just. I hope this happens at every Santorum appearance from now until he disappears. Because he so, so deserves it.

  15. Simple and to the point. Home run indeed!

  16. Finally calling BIGOTS and HATERS out on their dangerous rhetoric. Let's see MUCH more of this action.
    Bravo to

  17. Meanwhile, Santorum and Obama are eye to eye on gay marriage.

    Look, honey. If you want honestly, start reporting it sweet pea.

  18. Pennsylvanians figured him out and failed to reelect him to the Senate. Now the rest of the nation has seen him, with the same results. So he'll just fade away into a nice lobbying position (call it 'consulting') with a fat paycheck, and maybe an appointment to some political office by one of his right wing republican cronies.
