[quote][URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homophobia"]Rick Santorum[/URL] has been on the offensive lately, but his target has not been Republican frontrunner Mitt Romney or even President Barack Obama. For the past week, Santorum has been using his campaign to take aim at an issue he feels to be the single most dangerous force in America today: Satanism in heavy metal. “If you listen to the radio today, many of these brand new, so-called heavy metal music bands like Black Sabbath, Venom, The WASP and Iron Maiden use satanic imagery to corrupt the minds of young people,” announced Santorum at a 10,000 dollar a plate sock-hop in Valdosta, Georgia on Thursday. Santorum’s popularity in the polls has grown substantially since he began speaking out against metal and its assault on traditional values. He has spent much of the past week in the Midwest encouraging young people to stay away from metal artists and listen to performers like Michael W. Smith and Pat Boone. In a recent Gallup Poll, 87 percent of Republican voters think that the biggest problem in America today is “the demented bloodlust of teenagers caused entirely by heavy metal music.” In the past, Santorum has accused heavy metal of being the cause of some of the worst crimes in American history including the attempt on the life of Ronald Reagan in 1981, 9/11 and the passage of Obama’s Health Care Bill. He stepped up his rhetoric in a speech on Wednesday when he implied that heavy metal is the cause of many forms of mental illness as well as lactose intolerance. It’s probably not a coincidence that since he began his crusade against metal that his poll numbers have been surging upwards. Picking out a small and unique group, singling them out as “other” and using them to frighten the masses is a proud tradition in American politics. However, many commentators believe that his call for metal internment camps goes too far. Santorum has openly advocated the forced re-education of metalheads. They would be forced to endure 30 days of non-stop “values based” music that promotes the American way of life as well as the free market. In order to leave, they will have to sing the chorus to at least one Celine Dion song. In response to Santorum’s metal onslaught, Mitt Romney officially denounced his earlier position of “tolerance towards all fans of extreme music”. This, in spite of the fact that GWAR played his inauguration as governor of Massachusetts back in 2003. But things have changed since 2003 and embracing heavy metal music is about as popular selling baby organs on Ebay or clubbing seals. Romney will need to begin pretending to be something else if he plans on facing Obama in the general election in November.

I'm no metal head but this kind of shit show's how corrupt the American political system is. It should be illegal to make these sorts of claims as part of a campaign without at least some substantial evidence. Seriously how the fuck do you americans take this kind of bollocks?
The political system here is a[I] fucking disgrace[/I] to humanity as a whole. How can a fucking superpower even consider having people like this moron run to LEAD it?
Footloose 2.0? . Do you have a better source than "Tyranny of tradition"?
[quote]In a recent Gallup Poll, 87 percent of Republican voters think that the biggest problem in America today is “the demented bloodlust of teenagers caused entirely by heavy metal music.”[/quote] Yes that is totally the worst problem in America.

Of course he would say something like this at a fucking sock hop
And in our darkest hour of Santorum's twisted empire, a rebellion begins... [video=youtube;uGe8qID9gSs]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uGe8qID9gSs[/video]

[quote]“If you listen to the radio today, many of these brand new, so-called heavy metal music bands like Black Sabbath, Venom, The WASP and Iron Maiden use satanic imagery to corrupt the minds of young people"[/quote] its true, ive been listening to bands like black sabath, iron maiden, amon amarth and such and have been having urges to kill people and worship satan and eat children
it's like i'm really watching the 700 club
In other news, Santorum claims that listening to George Strait cured his daughter's pneumonia.

Santorum would probably shit a brick if he found out Dave Mustaine was a Christian.

I will literally give anyone $1,000 to kill this man.
this makes the war on drugs look okay
uh santorum, heavy metal has been around since the late 60s.
I'm literally confused by how stupid this man is. How did he ever get a position of power? How?
What is this, the 80's again?
[QUOTE=TheFilmSlacker;34643110]what[/QUOTE] I think that poll was taken a few weeks after Columbine, theres now way 87% of any demographic think Metal music is still a serious issue.

Ethel told me last tea time that that "KISS" band all the children are listening to stands for "Knights in Satan's Service!" I support this Santorum boy, we need to keep Jesus in our children's hearts and keep those pig-slaughtering devil-worshiping JEWS like Gene Simmons out of the White House!
"These brand new bands" "Black Sabbath" Nope.
I thought that moral crusaders stopped shitting their pants over metal in like, the 90s? why is he bringing it up now? metal isn't even A Thing anymore
Why doesn't he declare war on the new popular shit like Justin Bieber because they're turning our kids into idiots?
[QUOTE=Protocol7;34643192]Why doesn't he declare war on the new popular shit like Justin Bieber because they're turning our kids into idiots?[/QUOTE] Are we still on the Justin Bieber hate wagon? The kid isn't even that popular anymore.
