Higher Education Dangerous, Says Rick Santorum: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2012-02-25 at 10.55.02 PM copy
Yesterday in Troy, Michigan, Rick Santorum explained why kids shouldn't go to college. There, liberal professors "indoctrinate" them, and "remake" them in the image of Barack Obama. This, apparently, is the only reason Barack Obama wants kids to pursue higher education. Says Santorum: "What a snob!"

Watch and weep, AFTER THE JUMP ...

  1. I do believe another Rick (Worley) can sum up this anti-intellectual dialogue better than I can:

  4. Where are the true respectable Republican leaders to call this idiot out on these rants?

    PS This assembly was in Troy, Mich ... one of the wealthiest cities in the state and home of a recently exposed homophobic mayor Janice Daniels.

  5. "What a snob." To be fair, it's possible Santorum misspoke. I'm fairly certain he really meant to say "how uppity."

  6. Well, he's absolutely correct. The mind is a terrible thing to use.

  7. @H -- I was curious so I did some googling...his eldest daughter is a junior at the Catholic University of Dallas. She is taking some time off (a semester or maybe the year) to help work on her father's campaign. It sounds like she loves college.

    Santorum is either a hypocrite or completely insane. I vote for the latter.

  8. Obviously, young people should be home-schooled until they're 30 so they're not indoctrinated into POV's other than their parents'.

  9. YES! The question to ask, are HIS kids going to college? Of course, on second thought, they'd just go to an institution that makes faith and dogma the priority, not critical thinking.

    I do wish he'd shut up - for a little while at least, just long enough to get the nomination. Even if he never spouts this crap again, imagine the negative track ads dredging this back up. Loser!

  10. I wonder if Santorum still thinks that the universe is geocentric or maybe that the universe revolves around him.

  11. DEVON - a false dichotomy. He can be both.

  12. DEV not DEVON - damn autocorrect

    Posted by: TJ | Feb 26, 2012 12:46:16 PM


  13. And above that, attack not track. Damn autocorrect

  14. If we lived in a rational world, this sad rant would be the end of him as a public figure. Sad, sad, sad.

  15. And this from earlier today. I too would love if he won the nomination:

    >> “I don’t believe in an America where the separation of church and state is absolute,” Santorum said. “The idea that the church can have no influence or no involvement in the operation of the state is absolutely antithetical to the objectives and vision of our country.”

    Clearly, a Constitutional scholar. Obama can basically sit around smoking until late October.

  18. Oh I totaly agree with ricky I have no medical experience at all and I bet that if I prey (lol) to gawd I can perform open heart surgery on ricky with no ill effects. I mean things like engineers, doctors, and scientists are way over rated, they could do better by praying and letting gawd do the math. I mean who wouldn't like to drive over a bridge that gawd built by divine intervention.

  20. Targeting the intellectuals is always one of the first things fascists do. Germany, Cambodia, China, Russia and now welcome to America.

  24. as others have pointed out, Rick is actually 100% correct.
    higher education is dangerous....to the GOP.

    the more educated you are the less likely you are to vote Republican.

    this is why the GOP focuses on "social issues" like abortion and "the gays" - their base isnt' smart enough to understand fiscal issues, despite the fact that they think they're voting for "a fiscally responsible party"

    educated minds are all too aware of how fiscally messed up the GOP's plans are.

  25. Embarrassment to the Catholic church. I seriously hope he wins the GOP nomination. Obama will win against him in a landslide!
