Reason Magazine Blogger Finds Pleasure in Tears of Rick Santorum's 8-year-old Daughter

Reason Magazine Blogger Finds Pleasure in Tears of Rick Santorum's 8-year-old Daughter

Because the libertarian universe has no place for the vulnerable, weak, or the dependent--since none are autonomous adult-choosers in search of virtual kiddie porn--it has no qualms in providing a forum in which children and their families can be verbally abused and have profanities hurled at them. Read and weep Julian Sanchez's "Your Tears Are So Yummy and Sweet" in which the writer says he finds joy in the tears of Rick Santorum's eight-year-old daughter, who is pictured crying next to her father as he gives his concession speech on Tuesday night, November 7. Most of the comments that follow celebrate and contribute to Mr. Sanchez's meanness. In fact, one commentator, named Jon H., makes sarcastic reference to the Santorums' newborn child who died in 1996. ~ Posted by Francis J. Beckwith at 11:25 PM

Your Tears Are So Yummy and Sweet

Julian Sanchez | November 8, 2006, 2:44pm

Man, I haven't taken this much pleasure in the suffering of a small child in days.

I'd find Mr. Sanchez's tears delightful - particularly the tears that one gets from a sharp kick to the scrotum.

If he liked the taste of Sarah Santorum's tears, I have to think he's going to love what Harry Reid's Senate majority is going to stuff in his mouth. Bon appetit.

So, by the same token I can say that the conservative universe has no place for fidelity since a republican committed adultery once.

"Julian Sanchez is a libertarian?"

Looks like it:

November 1, 2006
Spreading Santorum at NRO

"...Even if he were marginally better than Casey on the issues in the short term, which I doubt, he would be worth defeating if he teaches Republicans that libertarian votes can't be taken for granted, and shows Democrats that they're worth vying for. ..."

Yeah, I found it surprising, too. He worked for Cato. I at first thought he must have been a misidentified commielib, since liberals are sometimes called libertarians by people who don't know what a libertarian is. Apparently not. (Someone should tell him that in comparison to Santorum, Casey is a Bolshevek.)

I don't know why you would bring your kids onstage for something like that - it's not her fault to be that upset, but anyway, Santorum's son flipped everybody off, so it all evens out.

Absolutely. What led you to think I thought they were his remarks? I plainly show that it is Beckwith who is bringing our attention to Sanchez' remarks and also link to his web site.

A big thanks should go to Professor Bethwith for pointing this out.

The poor girl. My daughter is nine and cries at movies. It is a very emotional time for a girl.

The cold hearted snake who thinks her tears are sweet should get just desserts. I agree with Ivan.

The "your tears are so yummy and seet" line from Eric Cartman is on South Park is really funny becasue it's a cartoon with imaginary characters.

The douchebag who made the statement here and the little girl were both real.

No, they are definitely not fair game. Santorum is fair game since he thrust himself in the public arena. But, his family should be respected and will be respected by individuals with class.

Santorum shyould have left his kids "out of it".

You don't get to have it both ways by parading them around to get family values votes, then get mad when someone makes mean jokes. The girl does look pathetic and her parents should have protected her by not thrusting her out in the middle of an election defeat.

Click the link to Shanchez' comments and read the other like-minded comments that equal and exceed what he had to say.

You will never be able to find vile comments like that made by mainstream conservatives about the *children* of liberals. Stop blowing smoke.

I think it's a rule that a professor involved with religion and ethics can't have any of either. Otherwise he/she would be biased.</sarcasm>

That's sick. They even made fun of Rick Santorum's baby who died in 1996. Here's just one of the disgusting comments directed at the girl:

"I think Frowny is the best. She is trying SO hard to look sad... but in reality she can't wait to go home and tell her diary about all the fun she and her friends had at the meth-fueled lipstick party, while Daddy and Mommy were out campaigning.

Either that, or she'll die a fat virgin, and she really IS sad. Not sure which."

No, really, I'm surprised they would take so much glee in this. Because I think sooner rather than later, when they see what they're actually going to get from Harry and Nancy's Congress, they're going to realize that the opportunity to laugh at Santorum and his family was actually pretty poor compensation.

"Hey, since he brought them on stage for sympathy they're fair game."

That's "your take" that they were standing with their father so as to elicit sympathy. Your conclusion says more about you than it does about Rick Santorum.

Children are definately viewed as "fair game" for unscrupulous low-lifes, that's for sure, but never for people of honor and integrity. I think you would feel more at home over on the blogs where Sanchez hangs out.

Clearly, you know nothing about Santorum and his family. He wasn't "parading them about", in your words; he is a family man who includes his family in his life.

He and his wife homeschool their kids. If you knew any homeschool families, you'd know that this makes for a close parent/child bond.

And all of that aside - pick on someone your own size, unless you are also 8 years old. Come to think of it, you are acting that age.
