The “Frothy Mix” Definition Of Santorum Also Applies To Rick’s Entire Family Line

When Dan Savage helped redefine GOP Presidential candiate Rick Santorum’s last name as “the frothy mixture of feces and lube that is sometimes the by-product of anal sex,” it also applied to anyone with that last name, including Rick’s seven kids—Elizabeth, Richard, Daniel, Sarah, Peter, Patrick, and Isabella—Rick’s ancestors and any offspring a man with the last name of Santorum will ever have.

Not content to stop there, Savage is now threatening to ruin life for every person named Rick by redefining Rick Santorum’s first name if he doesn’t cut out all the anti-gay campaigning. But seeing as Santorum just pledged to reverse all this last weekend’s same-sex marriages in New York, Rick’s first name is as good as besmirched.

Savage’s proposed redefinition of “Rick” lacks the gross brevity of “Santorum” but it’ll probably catch on, especially if straight couples actually use turkey jerky and sphincter muscles in the way Savage describes.

      I think it’s a fair proposition, Frothy Mix doesn’t attack the LBGT crowd and his nickname doesn’t get smeared. Go Dan Savage.

      Aw, the fickleness of Queerty!

      A few weeks ago, the Queerty queers were bad mouthing Dan as irrelevant and useless for his seminal “It Gets Better” campaign which I think is extremely important but now because he’s going after a Tea Party, Christofacist named Rick Santorum, his marbles suddenly have value?

      Have no doubt, Savage is still a media whore and opportunist. He is just smart enough to go after people we hate more than him.

      The day after this video went viral on Funny of Die, Santorum (eewww) spoke publicly to say he was going to overturn Marriage Equality in NY and that he needs your donations.

      Cue, Dan in 3… 2… 1.

      This is SOooo clearly a case of ‘reap what you sow’

      So much leftist hate, so few targets . . . so let’s start trashing someone’s name! Ain’t we clever?!? Because “Rick Santorum” is such a funny, funky name! (unlike “Barack Obama”, of course). I think I recall this kind of behavior from the fifth grade . . . or was it the first?

      @Politically Incorrect Thug: You are talking about a media whore that makes his living talking about sex. What exactly did you think his maturity level was? That being said, its still funny even as an adult.

      I have no respect for Savage, and I am curious why he is so fixated on Satorum when there are much bigger threats. Maybe Santorum shot Savage down at the baths or something.

      @Politically Incorrect Thug: Leftist hate? Santorum made it part of his political platform to vilify gay people, comparing us to dog f#$kers and pedos. He expresses his contempt for gay people at least once a week. Dan Savage retaliated against Ricky’s rants in a very smart and thoughtful way. This has nothing to do with left or right, but it does have a lot to do with hate. Santonrum’s a hater. Savage is having fun with him.

      @Daez:

      This is the guy who was publiclly out from the beginning and developed a huge straight following while constantly talking about gay issues. I’m sorry but as far as I’m concerned being publiclly out to a large straight audience has been good for the community and the gay rights movement. MUCH more so that all the closet cases out there like Anderson Cooper.

      @Daez – because at the time, Santorum had much higher national credibility and was saying those vile things without challenge. He’s not fixated now – it’s mainly everyone quoting him since Santortum joined the race AND called attention to the Google thing.

      And, as a result of the media focus, it makes great fodder for Funny or Die. This was obviously a joke from start to finish.

      Haven’t John McCain, Sarah Palin, GW Bush and even Obama (granted through a legal brief) all expressed similar opinions of absurdity? Why has Savage chosen to go after Santorum who never came close to the political prowess of the other people I just mentioned? Is it because Santorum was weaker than the others and Savage knows how to pick his fights?

      @Daez: Actually Frothy Mix was a powerful Senator before he had the rug pulled out from underneath him. McCain mortally wounded his presidential campaign by putting in the moron from Wasyphilis. GW Bush had everyone gunning for him. You’re going to compare Obama to those other jackholes? Please, don’t be nuts, he doesn’t compare gays to those that practice beastiality or pedophilia. Santorum has and does throw shit like that out of his mouth and then whines when he gets called on it or made fun of for doing so.

      @Gigi: I know that Santorum is an idiot with no chance of even getting picked as someone’s VP — I never defended him. Sorry, but when people begin acting like petulant children when it comes to political issues (want examples? see above), you lose all credibility with a few keystrokes. Debate becomes pointless when your only response is to say, “Oh yeah? Well . . . you have a poopy name!” Seriously. Be informative — that’s a creative way of protest, but don’t be catty; it’s one of the things that the ‘phobes hold against us. We’re better than that.

      Just in case the obvious needs to be said: many, if not most, of the commenters here are either heterosexual trolls trying to make gays look stupid, or they’re actual stupid, bitter gays who don’t get any attention in real life so they come here and act like idiots to get it.

      Funny, that is the same argument that HRC has been using for years. Gays need to stay quiet and be soft and respectful. And guess what…our rights went nowhere. Since gays have been very “In Your Face” for the last few years, public approval for gay marraige has skyrocketed nationally by 15%.

      When somebody says that gays are comparable to people fucking animals or their siblings, you don’t sit down for tea with your pinky extended and say “Oh My Goodness”.

      Weakening the Democratic Base, Part 5: Liberal Netroots

      “The people who regularly consult sites like Gawker or Think Progress or Dailykos and take their liberal drivel as gospel will never be reformed, just as I am sure the folks who regularly consult Redstate, or Townhall, or Human Events will be ever be “reformed” in the eyes of the liberal. However, they are bigger blockheads because unlike the conservative, they refuse to consult and comment on the other side. That is where conservatives- armed with better facts- are better equipped to steer away from these liberal websites, those visitors who are new or unique to those sites. So the best way of combating the liberal netroots is through a 4-point program.

      First, infiltratethe site. For this, you will have to avoid creating screen names like “GoPalinGo” or “Heartlandredstater.” Also, some websites may actually have you wait a week before you are allowed to comment or blog. Perhaps, they are investigating the e-mail address you give them against whether it is used for a conservative website. Be sure to avoid that tendency; if you use, for example, aol.com screen name for RedState, make sure you use a yahoo e-mail address for Dailykos, or whatever. Once you are there, the second part of the strategy is to gain their trust. For this, you cannot be too overtly gung-ho conservative in your outlook. Instead, you sort of have to be the voice of a moderate liberal. This will take a lot of acting skill, but it could be done. For example, over at ThinkProgress, they had an article about how the folks in Alabama got what they deserved with the recent spate of tornadoes because their legislators did not believe in global warming. It took all my energies not to reach through the Internet and strangle these kooks, but I responded, “Well, that might be going a little too far…” Along the way, I gained the trust of certain posters on that thread.

      The third step is to move the conversation in the direction you desire. By doing this, you can then form the debate in terms you can win. For example, in the above story, although I said they were going too far in their comments, I moved the conversation somewhat by questioning whether the folks in Alabama would accept Federal funds to rebuild their lives. In other words, the subject was changed from a debate on global warming to one of fiscal responsibility. Once there, you can then highjack the thread. In effect, you have changed the subject and tenor or the conversation and the writer of the original post has lost their ability to moderate the conversation and that creates a free-for-all that gets the conversation far off the original mark. Of course, you will be accused of “threadjacking” or, worse (drumrolls please…) being a “troll.” To this I say, of course you are a troll and you should be proud of it. Embrace your status of being a “troll” on the liberal website and carry it through to its logical conclusion. To put it bluntly: Embrace your inner troll. If they realize what is happening and accuse you of being a troll or such, or if they try to block you and your opinions, remind them of their support for the Fairness Doctrine and their reasoning for it- to ensure that both sides have a say- should allow you to have your say. Force them to practice what they preach.”

      If Santorum had even a slim chance, I would encourage Mr.Savage to take action. That being said there are front runners in the Republican primary who represent a direct threat to equal rights. We need to utilize our time and resources against candidates who may have the ability to do us harm. If we simply ignore Santorum, he will fade away.

      Here you go. Focus on the “hilarious.” This was on Funny or Die – wait for it … a comedy site. It featured Rick Fox crying for goodness sake!

      Some of you people are taking yourselves way to seriously.

      As an aside, we want Rick “Frothy Mix” Santorum to keep talking. We don’t want him to shut up. Everytime he opens his mouth his stupidity and bigotry is exposed. We should give him a microphone and a national stage, he will do the rest.

      Puhlease! Transphobic, biphobic, woman hating racist that has exploited LGBTs for his own pocketbook calling someone else a scumbag grifter? Hypocrisy, thy name is Miss Dan Savage. *spits*

      Dan Savage is a self-centered embarrassment.

      Mr. Savage himself is the worst spokesman the gay community can ask for. He should stick to offering advice on putting metal rods up your dick and stop pretending he has anything intelligent to say on matters of institutional importance.

      Dan Savage makes lots more money by saying controversial things. He does not simply have an opinion about non-monogamy, he strongly pushes it any chance he gets. It is part of his money making brand, just like always wearing a T-shirt, and making himself Mother Teresa with “It gets better”.

      On Dan Savage, I certainly don’t want him representing gay men. Who the fuck appointed him? If he wishes to be a media whore, he should represent himself under the Dan Savage banner, not the gay rights banner.

      The more Savage opens his mouth, the less interested I am in what comes out of it.
