Kate Kendell to Mrs. Santorum: You’re the haters, we’re the victims, now go away

Rick Santorum’s wife called us all bullies for being intolerant of her husband’s intolerance. Kate Kendell is having none of it:

In some ways, it’s very sad. In another two or three months, the cameras will be gone, and the press will not care about you or Rick. The march of justice will continue, leaving you and your family a forgotten footnote on the wrong side of history.

I’m glad we talked, Karen. I feel better now. While I know you will keep saying whatever that reprobate PR firm is telling you to say, at least we understand each other.

You and Rick are the haters. My community is the victim, and anyone paying attention knows the truth.

The Santorums are simply parroting the recently-popular religious right talking point that the haters are the real victims because society is no longer so willing to leave them hate in peace. They fear an America where their freedom to be bigots is countered by our freedom to counter them. For conservatives, especially the far right like the Santorums, they prefer their victims helpless and silent.

Sorry to disappoint.
