Single Moms Breed Criminals, Santorum?

It’s not just the sweater vests with this fucker. He’s really stupid, too.

Motherjones.com recently obtained transcripts of an appearance Santorum did at a town meeting in Clairiton, Pa., in 1994. According to the transcripts, he speaks out against the so-called harms of single motherhood, that he says is “breeding more criminals”. Santorum: “We are seeing it. We are seeing the fabric of this country fall apart, and it’s falling apart because of single moms.”

In true conservative nature, he manages to generalize millions of people raised in single parent households who not only avoided penitentiaries, but got educations, made concentrate differences in society, were good parents, and overall productive citizens.

Hence, below is a compilation of  just five  of the most notorious U.S criminals, having committed heinous acts, all while being white, middle class, religious, and (gasp) born into two parent households.

  1. I’ve talked to people in real life that had similar attitudes about single mothers, like they were the sole reason for the condition of the family/community today. There’s a multitude of problems with this statement. First of all, it takes two people to make a child, and a majority of the time those two people came together and had sex. Now I can’t speak for everyone else, but to me that means that there are two people who are responsible for the raising of the child. So the blame also falls on the fathers who aren’t playing an active or supportive role in the lives of their children. Second of all, as you stated, not every child raised by a single mother turns out to be the scum of society. Quite the contrary, many single mothers do a great job in raising their children to be productive and responsible members of society. Just one more WTF moment courtesy of Rick Santorum, but what more can you expect from rape victims should just accept their pregnancy as a gift.
