Rick Santorum Rails Against "Hard-Core Pornography"


The Modern Day GOP Mascot
I, like many others, think the GOP got their mascot wrong.  They want to bury their collective heads in the sand and ignore reality.  They want to pretend that global warming doesn't exist and is not, in part, caused by man made issues.  They want to pretend that evolution doesn't exist.  They want to pretend that gays don't exist or, at least can change themselves to being not-gay.  
Obviously, the "O" in GOP should stand for Ostrich. 
Yes, for Rick Santorum, porn is one of the most pressing matters facing our country.  I think Rick simply doesn't want any evidence that people have sex other than the birth of children.  I'm sure he doesn't want there to be evidence of a certain type of sex...poor Santorum.  In this instance, he wants to ignore the fact that men like to watch porn and the sky hasn't fallen as a result.  
Rick Santorum has garnered quite a bit of attention recently for his animated remarks against pornography, and on two separate Sunday shows the Republican presidential candidate refused to cede an inch, doubling down on his crusade against “hard-core pornography.”
A recently added section on the candidate’s website declares that America is “suffering a pandemic of harm from pornography,” and laments that the “Obama Administration has turned a blind eye to those who wish to preserve our culture from the scourge of pornography and has refused to enforce obscenity laws.” The site goes on to say that the Justice Department “seems to favor pornographers over children and families.”
Oh, yes I did!!
Asked to defend this odd claim, Santorum argued Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union that the Justice Department is not enforcing pornography laws as rigorously as President George W. Bush’s DOJ did.
“Well you have to look at the proof that’s in the prosecution. Under the Bush administration, pornographers were prosecuted much more rigorously under existing law than they are under the Obama administration,” Santorum said. “My conclusion is they have not put a priority on prosecuting these cases, and in doing so, they are exposing children to a tremendous amount of harm. And that to me says they’re putting the un-enforcement of this law and putting children at risk as a result of that.”
