Rick Santorum, Manchurian Candidate. Communism is in His Genes.

Rick Santorum has always seemed a little too good to be true. Michael Ledeen, for one, has fallen right into the trap, in his recent Wall St. Journal piece, “Santorum was right about Iran – When It was Unpopular.” But then one looks at Ledeen’s subtitle, “A grandfather who fled Mussolini taught him to prize freedom.”

That was enough to raise an eyebrow of this wary reader as I slogged through Ledeen’s tortuous prose. Who exactly was this grandfather, Pietro Santorum, the forebear whom Rick often praises on the campaign trail? I wondered. Why would he flee Mussolini anyway? What was he up to?  And exactly what does Ledeen mean by “freedom”?

And sure enough, my suspicions were confirmed. Pietro was a Commie! Rick is a closet Red Diaper offspring. Let us remember that grandfather Pietro is not just any member of the family but the one Rick relentlessly cites on the campaign trail as a humble coal miner who worked in the mines until the age of 72. Is harping on Grandad some sort of signal to other Commie operatives? Now disguised as campaign workers and “good Catholics” for Rick, will they stage a coup once Rick is in the White House and has sent our troops all over the world leaving us defenseless here? What is going on? Herb Philbrick, where are you when we need you.

I always thought Rick Santorum was just a little too good to be true.

The story was picked up by Barbie Latza Nadeau of the Daily Beast who found it in the Italian magazine Oggi. Writes Latza Nadeau:
“In the tiny town of Riva del Garda in northern Italy, 83-year-old-Maria Malacarne Santorum keeps her family’s secrets—including those of her late husband’s cousin, Rick. In an exclusive interview with the Italian weekly magazine Oggi, Mrs. Santorum recalls fondly when Rick visited her in 1985 during his law internship in Florence, and when he came back again in 1986 and 1989.
“But the elder Santorum matriarch doesn’t understand why he has diverged so far from the family’s longtime political stance. ‘In Riva del Garda his grandfather Pietro and uncles were ‘red communists’ to the core,” writes Oggi journalist Giuseppe Fumagalli, likening the family to ‘Peppone’ after a famous fictional Italian communist mayor who fought against an ultraconservative priest known as Don Cammillo and about which a popular television series is based. ‘But on the other side of the ocean, it’s like his family here doesn’t exist. Instead he draws crowds as the head of the ultraconservative faction of the Republican party, against divorce, gay marriage, abortion, and immigration.’
“Those politics don’t play well in Riva del Garda, a community of ultraliberals. On the campaign trail, Santorum often touts his grandfather’s flight from Italy ‘to escape fascism,’ but he has neglected to publicly mention their close ties with the Italian Communist Party. ‘Rick’s grandfather Pietro was a liberal man and he understood right away what was happening in Italy,” Mrs. Santorum told Oggi. ‘He was anti-fascist to the extreme, and the political climate in 1925 was stifling so he left for America. After a few years he returned to Italy with his wife and children, including Aldo, Rick’s father, who passed away late last year. It’s a shame he won’t have the joy to see his son’s success in his bid for the White House.’ She goes on to explain how the family then became pillars of the Communist Party in Italy.”

Et tu, Papa Aldo? What exactly did Rick learn at Papa’s knee?

Well Rick, the cat is out of the bag. Cousin Bruno was obviously talking about a little more than family fondness when he said, “When (Rick) wins, he will send the American presidential airplane and take all the Santorums to the White House.” And then Bruno and the rest of the Santorum reds will be running our lives. Rick your intent to deploy the troops to Iran and leave us defenseless upon your election stands exposed. And since Michael Ledeen is peddling your candidacy, we have to wonder about him also. He always seemed a little too good to be true.

  1. Interesting. Perhaps the Neocon agenda for war and endless interventionism appeals to Rick's latent Trotskyism.

    1. Tim: If my reading of the history surrounding the rise of Bolshevik Communism in Russia is accurate, I believe that Stalin and Leon Trotsky developed some pretty serious animosities towards one another and a big part of this animosity was their disagreement over which flavor of Communism should be pursued. The choices were a nationalist oriented flavor of Communism, which Stalin desired and which would be confined to Russia and the surrounding, neighboring states (which Stalin felt would be much easier to manage and control) and an internationalist flavor of Communism, which Trotsky craved – which was to be spread all over the world, and have its tentacles wrapped around the throats of every nation on the planet. Stalin prevailed and was kind enough to do the world a great service by arranging to have an ice pick jammed into the evil brain of Trotsky, who was in exile in Mexico City. Too bad that Trotsky hadn't decided to dispatch his own assassin and do the same thing to Stalin.

      Anyway, our despicably evil neo-cons are actually nothing more than Trotskite Communists, and they've simply re-labeled and repackaged Trotsky's International Communism as 'neo-conservatism', but they are really the same thing. Endless wars and endless interventionism, with the objective of imposing – by force or by blackmail or by any other means at their disposal – the neo-con version of Trotskyite Communism upon every nation in the world. Oh, and the nations which happen to have something of value worth stealing – such as natural resources – they somehow miraculously worked their way up on the priority list of nations to attack first. I'm sure you're aware that "communists" only push communism in order to appeal to the stupid masses, because communism promises to make the losers in life just as successful and prosperous as the winners in life – but, no sooner than communists of any flavor manage to gain power – they immediately metamorphisize into greedy and materialist vulture capitalists. Thus, our neo-cons show their true colors by revealing that they are blood-sucking, nation plundering vampires.

      As for Rick Santorum – this guy is as dangerous as a cobra snake, and we all have better hope that he doesn't wind up being in charge of anything more important than picking up the dog poop at the local SPCA. Which, when you think about it, is all he really qualified for.

      1. I agree with your assessment Steve. I would only add that if any of the three pigmies (Romney, Santorum or Gingrich) gets the nomination, the political landscape and our future as a nation doesn't alter course. The neocon Trokyites will continue their campaign of looting the treasury.

        Of course, an O'Bomber win just about insures that 2012 will be the last general elections held in the USSA.

    1. True enough. But when the author offers little more than repetitive impersonations of a self-hating progressive, do you really expect the (so-called) 'vulgar libertarians' to undertand the satire?

    1. the next question was,
      Have you ever knowingly associated with a Member of the Communist Party?

      the HCUA still exists in the House Judiciary Commitee as they took it over in 1975.

  2. Interesting. You have Trotskyite warmongering NeoCons chasing the golden ring that a Marxist is presently fondling. The mind boggles.

    1. When it comes to Commies, Obama has been well trained in it. He is trained by Clowards and Pivens, his Commie professors. He was mentored by Saul Alinsky. He is George Soros' puppet, another Marxist. He cut his political teeth in Bill Ayers living room. Santorum may have forbears that were Communists, but Obummer is one.

        1. You are a very ignornant person who doesn't even bother to check out Obama's history. He is a Marxist and it is well documented. You are just too blind to bother to check out how he and the rest of the Dems/Communists are out to destroy America. I don't support Santorum, but I know he is not a Communist. I will however say, that he is lying about his ancestry and that is laughable because he is caught lying.

          The MSM covers up for Obummer all the time. Hell is is not even eligible to be on the ballot because he does not meet the definition of "natural born citizen" according to SCOTUS as his father was not a US citizen. Obummer gets away with murder and is destroying America. Looks like Kruschev was right when he said, "we will bury you." back in 1957.

    1. " nephew supports liberalism"

      I hope he supports 'classic ' liberalism and not what passes for a liberal today.

  3. The Shamtorum statist apples do not fall far from the statist tree.

    So it makes perfect sense that Scamtorum would be so popular among RepubloCons.

  4. It's my opinion none of the present candidates are worthy enough for this Present Presidency seat. The God of my fathers left instructions to elect one of your own brothers/brethren to this seat in office. It's We the American people who consistently ignore these facts as well as others to be hoodwinked!!

  5. There is much to which I have been made privy to concerning the events of today, as to who, what, where, when, how, and why of the matters as well! I also know the only, correct and logical solution but then again who would listen as everyone runs a-muck regarding his own tangent? Yes each one feels his corresponding ways are the correct ways and this is exactly what has led us to where we exactly are today. I have written a book of sorts with an exceedingly vast informational basis includ8ing previously unknown secrets which have been kept since my forefathers times. It will most certainly open the eyes of the blind! Anyone who wishes to learn the truth would be wise to invest in the miniscule amount required of the publisher. Anyway here is the website: http://www.janhershberger.com .

  6. "Santorum has always seemed a little too good to be true"
    "too good"? good for what? this guy is a fundamentalist religeo nutbag, with a twisted libido that spews venom – when creative energies go negative, they turn to destruction and war, as has happened in Sanitorium. If this nutjob would ever become preznit, he'd mandate all Americans be strapped into chastity belts before the oath of office was even finished.

    1. He is speaking out defending our first amendment rights that Obummer and his Commie buddies in the Democratic party are trying to remove. I will admit I don't like his rhetoric in this regard as he comes across as too judgmental. I'm glad you like having a Communist pos like Obummer in the WH illegally.

      1. Yeah we need to get Obama out so Republicans can get another turn nixing our rights. And even better if they adhere to some technicality nobody has ever sufficiently defined. Natural born? ur mah presidint!

        1. Exactly what rights have Republicans nixed? NDAA is Obummer. Attacking first amendment with healthcare mandate is an attack on our rights. Obamacare is an attack on our rights. Environmentalist terrorism is an attack on our rights. Helping the Muslim Brotherhood take over in the Middle East is an attack on our rights, as Obummer the Muslim Marxist has made the USA more dangerous with this ploy. Taking Islam off the terror list is an attack on my security which is one of my rights. Class warfare is an attack on my rights as he is using Commie rhetoric to redistribute the wealth.

          And as for "natural born" you ought to do some research on this as Obummer does not meet the eligibility requirements according to the SUPREME COURT. Both parents have to be US citizens. Obama's father, by Obummer's own admission, was NEVER A U S CITIZEN.

  7. I think that you are confusing communism and nazism. Easy to do since they are just different faces of the government running everything.

    There are, of course, many ways of classifying people. I would like to address four questions to groups that can roughly be classified as belonging to one or more of the following groups, religious Christians, conservatives, and republicans. For ease of use, I will refer to these people as RCCR. RS is a caricature of RCCR.

    RCCR want an every growing government. They want a military that can invade any country at any time (The Chaney 1% rule), a government that reserves to itself the right to be involved in almost all important private family decisions including what you can eat, how you can medicate yourself, life and death decisions, major health decisions, the type of sex you can have and with whom you can have it. Of course this is all in the name of morality, family, the sanctity of life (except of the civilians in the countries that we are invading) The RCCR wants to use religion as a factor in who can be elected to office. Since many of them believe in the literal word of the bible they wish to kill gay men who practice their sexuality. Given their stated hostility to people like me, an unbeliever, akin to a pedophile, it is easy to see that like the Nazis there would be death camps, the difference being that instead of Gays and Jews being sent to those camps, it would be unbelievers accompanying the queers, since Jews are now the favorite pets of the RCCR. Another difference is that the RCCR currently promotes private gun ownership. Now, if some RCCR feels offended by my comparing them to the Nazis, then explain the invitation by CPAC to people like Peter Brimelow. But other than promoting gun ownership, and prefering to put Queers into death camps rather than Jews, what other differences are there between Nazis and RCCR?

    Some of the RCCR will claim that the Nazis were pro abortion: Well no rational person is pro abortion: Rather, most rational people in favor of freedom want a woman to retain the right to make that difficult choice. In any case the Nazis were in favor of abortions only for sub-humans. For real (Ayran) people a physician providing an abortion could get the death penalty) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abortion_in_Germany

  8. Glad to see the brainwashing job has been thorough on you. There is really very little difference between Nazism and Communism, both are totalitarian.
    You accusations against RCCR are a pack of lies. You leftists love to twist things to your own advantage. You are masters at twisting the truth and good at playing the lying game. The RCCr wants smaller gov't as do all Conservatives. They are tired of the gov't trashing the Constitution and tearing it to bits, especially since the pile of excrement known as Obummer took office.
    No RCCR has ever put forth exterminating homosexuals. They are speaking out against the onslaught of the homosexual agenda. Homosexuals have the right to live their life in any deviant fashion they wish. The rest of society, a majority I would say, do not want this aberrant behavior shoved down our throats as normal. I say the majority, because in every state where a vote has been taken to strike down homosexual "marriage" it has been struck down.
    As for Brimelow, I have never heard of him and cannot comment on him.

  9. The communist party has held power in many areas of the prosperous North of Italy. It is strong well organized trade unions not "commie" Trotskyites. Even if you are just using satire it reminds me of Glen Beck's infantile and shallow satire.

    1. As has been pointed out time after tired time again and again… "satire" is something people here have a hard time accepting. They're to busy sharpening their knives.
