Santorum attacks Google for playing politics with ‘horrific filth’ searches [VIDEO]

As anyone with a web browser is aware by now, Rick Santorum has a Google problem with his last name, since gay columnist Dan Savage has created an alternate definition — one meant to embarrass Santorum — which rates higher in Google searches than the former senator’s own personal information. And according to Santorum, that’s not by accident.

Google, he said on Friday night’s “Hannity,” is protecting Barack Obama by helping Savage to destroy his good name.

Santorum doubled down on the Republican sentiment of the day, arguing that a biased liberal media is playing favorites, especially as it pertains to criticizing President Barack Obama.

“It’s fundamentally unfair, but you know it,” Santorum said. “These folks are despicable in what they will do to promote their agenda. They are all in the tank and they have been in the tank for the left, whether it’s Barack Obama or any other candidate. I’ve been dealing with this issue, as Newt and other conservatives have for every year I have ever been in public life. And we’ve been sabotaged in every possible way.”

Santorum mentioned his Google problem, but said there seems to be that same double standard because of the search engine’s willingness to protect Obama.

“You know, go on the Internet and look at the filth, the dispute out there. Look at organizations like Google. I mean Google, who has repeatedly on more than one occasion taken down sites, taken down searches for folks like Barack Obama and Michelle Obama, but has left it out there for me for 10 years so people can be exposed to the most horrific filth that you ever want to see — but it’s okay if you are a conservative.”

And that, Santorum said, is the result of Google’s political agenda.

“If Google wants to do that because they have a political agenda, which they do,” he continued, “it’s not just the mainstream media. It’s anyone that has access to the eyes and ears of the American public. And they are consistently trying to destroy fundamental values in this country — and conservatives who fight for it.”
