Rick Santorum Has The Audacity To Compare Kim Davis To Martin Luther King Jr.


According to Real Clear Politics, Rick Santorum is polling nationally at a mere 1 percent. That might be because he says stupid things like comparing anti-gay, non-law abiding citizen Kim Davis to civil rights icon Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Yes, Santorum, an uber Catholic, actually compared backwoods trash Kim Davis to MLK.

While speaking on AM970’s “The Answer,” Santorum said:

Martin Luther King went to jail because he didn’t follow the law. There’s a long precedent in America from people saying, ‘You know the law has to change to accommodate what is the right thing to do…I can tell you I’m very proud of the fact that she stood up for those convictions and she should stood up for what I believe.

Yes, standing up and being an anti-gay bigot is exactly the same as standing up against segregation, police brutality, discrimination and racially influenced blockades on voting.

No wonder Santorum is polling at 1 percent. Surprisingly, Santorum’s adversary (who takes the same position) Mike Huckabee is polling at a slightly better 4 percent.

Republicans have also compared Davis to civil rights icon Rosa Parks, the Montgomery woman who refused to give up her seat to a white woman, sparking the Montgomery bus boycott and ending segregation  on public transit. The difference between the two is really quite simple – Rosa Parks is Rosa Parks, and Kim Davis would have been the bus driver.

Rick Santorum has once again put his foot in his mouth. Hopefully he’ll be the next Republican to “suspend” his camping.
