Bad Republican: Rick Santorum says kindergartners are Nazis, and he would know because he has fascist relatives. (Publicus Proventus)



Bad Republican Rick Santorum -- whose actual existence is only third on the list of Google results you get when you Google "Santorum" -- has no chance of getting elected president and isn't really trying; he's just trying to up his Q-rating so he can get the time slot that Glenn Beck will be vacating this year on Fox. Which is why he can say stupid things like how pre-kindergarten classes are actually Nazi indoctrination schemes.

Speaking at a Republican forum which featured the people who you won't see in the campaign at this time next year, Santorum talked about the growing threat of "socialism:"


His uncle, he said, “used to get up in a brown shirt and march and be told how to be a good little fascist
.... I don’t know, maybe they called it early pre-K or something like that, that the government sponsored to get your children in there so they can indoctrinate them,” Santorum said.

(Source.) I think two key points to take from that quote are that (1) Rick Santorum's uncle was a fascist, and (2) The apple never falls far from the tree:

I never understand the point of these straw polls and such nonsense over a year before the election. Have they ever picked a winner who wasn't an incumbent?

I remember in preschool all those lessons on sharing. Socialism!!! In a truly capitalist preschool they'd teach you to take all the cookies from the other kids and then say you need those cookies so you can trickle down the crumbs to the poor kids. And even if you're full, you should demand more cookies, because that's the American way!
