(Liberal) Alan Colmes: Rick Santorum took dead baby home to 'play with it'
Examiner ^ | 1/2/2012 | Joe Newby,

Posted on 01/02/2012 8:16:51 PM PST by tobyhill

Liberal talk show host Alan Colmes sunk to new a new low when he said on Fox News that former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum took his deceased baby home to 'play with it.'

Noting that the GOP has "speed-dated" every other candidate, Colmes said voters should "get a load" of what he called the "crazy things" Santorum has said and done.

"Like taking his two-hour old baby who died right after childbirth home and played with it for a couple hours so his other children would know it was real, I mean..."

At this point, Fox News contributor Rich Lowry tore into Colmes, calling his statement a "cheap shot."

Lowry lambasted Colmes for "mocking" the death of Santorum's child and said it was beneath the liberal talker, sometimes known as "Skeletor" among some conservatives

Colmes is a total Dem talking points robot. He never swerves from the line. This was below hateful. He should be dropped because he adds nothing to any forum he is on. Just get a tape of Dem points, set it on the forum table and punch the button. Cheaper, better looking, and more enjoyable than Colmes.

Santorum was on either O'R or Hannity tonight and fully explained how they took the baby home to show the other children and make their little sibling real and to grieve together to bring closure and make it a part of the family. He got a little choked up, but held it together. Losing a child is a tragic event, but the libs and their baby killing policies have drained away the joy of the precious blessings of infants.

This is an incident that TRULY shows the bankrupt morals and integrity of the Democrat party.

They have to be stopped!

"as the mom of two previous “baked potatoes” who survived..I don’t find it strange at all. ALL life is sacred and a gift from God."

You completely miss the point.

The baby was dead.

Dunno. Haven’t had the patience to watch him in action, though I figure he’s sort of like the professional wrestler character that everyone either loves to hate or everyone feels sorry for.

Maybe it is their private business and not a fit topic for public ridicule. Have you ever thought of that? Read my post about President Lincoln, his wife and their dead son? Going to say they’re creeps and sneer at them, also?

Hello Alan,

Here's what I have on Santorum. Looking forward to seeing it on your show.

I emphasized the appropriate statements (below) I guess it has to be told.. Rick Santorum while a senator would dress in military gear and summons military vehicles and weapons on week-ends. He used them against small remote communities throughout the 57 states.

This is testimony before a Senate subcommittee. Rick Santorum "raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, [has] blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Ghengis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside, in addition to the normal ravage of war and the normal and very particular ravaging which is done by the applied bombing power [of Air Force planes that he ordered to bomb the homes]."

Those cattle mutilations you've heard about over the past few years.. now you know. Rick. That's right.

Your friend.

(There I twixed that to Colmes. Wot? Tweet? D'oh!)

“He should be off the air, given the full Don Imus / Jimmy the Greek treatment.”

Don’t forget how Howard Cosell was immediately 86ed for a spontaneous comment not nearly as bad.

There’s no accountability among liberals. They love it that way.

Funerals in one’s home not that long ago was the norm. Up until the 1940’s it was common.

'Progressive' POS's like Colmes actually pride themselves of being ignorant about things like that. That's how they justify almost all of their worthless partisan bigotry and low life sneering and hypocrisy.

"Upon their son's death, Rick and Karen Santorum opted not to bring his body to a funeral home. Instead, they bundled him in a blanket and drove him to Karen's parents' home in Pittsburgh. There, they spent several hours kissing and cuddling Gabriel with his three siblings, ages 6, 4 and 1 1/2. They took photos, sang lullabies in his ear and held a private Mass."

The above description is NOT quite what you said. The baby's siblings were very young, that was a good way to handle the grief of their little brother. You made it sound like the Crypt-keeper was right and they were playing games with little Gabriel.

When I watched it-—”Play with It” were the operative words——the demeaning words which he claimed he wasn’t doing. How disrespectful to human beings—to “play” with dead bodies???????

He was forcing that into people’s minds—”playing” with dead bodies. (Marxist twisting of words to create intentional perceptions.)

Colmes mind is really sick and twisted-—like all Marxists. He reminds me of the Atheist French Revolution when the Leftists took control and not only started severing everyone’s heads-—they took the corpses and “played” with they —placing them in homoerotic poses for laughs. These people are truly sick. Like the leftists did when they dug up the corpses from graveyards in the Spanish Civil War-—same thing-—they actually do play with corpses and think it’s funny and sexy. Like the Homosexual SS Troops-—they did play with corpse and mutilate them for fun——just play.

Colmes is just thinking how Cooper thinks about the teabaggers-—so funny that vision in the mind. Yes, the continual dehumanizing acts they do and think makes it easy to treat other people inhumanely.

Slippery Slope, Colmes—Get treatment now for your sick mind.

I saw the movie “Tom Jones” back in the ‘70’s - I don’t remember who the lead was but there was a character who was a dead ringer for Colmes, both facially and character-wise. That would be Mr. Bliffle, a haughty know-it-all POS.

.....and the character assignation begins with earnest for Santorum.

Whether from Romney or Obama, doesn't matter. The goal here is to eliminate all but Romney so that Obama can beat Romney rather than any conservative.

Santorum is gaining in the polls, so he should expect more of this sort of excrement flung his way.

I expect it from guys like Colmes & maybe even some of the more machievellian hacks on the republican side. But Freeper apologists for this kind of trash makes me positively sick.

This is a different story than the one I saw before.

It sounds odder to take an already dead baby home. I thought it lived there about two hours.

Wow, you're cold.

The real point is the baby was theirs and their grief was theirs; therefore, it's none of anyone's business how they dealt with their grief, or helped their family deal with the grief.

The part about women treating baby dolls as real babies maybe has more meaning than we can realize. It’s possible that these women have lost children when they were small, or the worst case scenario, they may have had abortions and are trying to relive having a live child. I know a woman whose grown child had died two years earlier suddenly and she wanted to have a baby doll, one of the ones that looks like a real baby. And my aunt lost 3 grown children from juvenile diabetes, and she got a baby doll. I don’t think she plays with it, but it must be some sort of comfort to have the doll substitutes.

A couple that loses a child right after birth deserves our sympathy and support. How the family deals with their tragedy not our concern.

Only a liberal would ridicule a family that lost a newborn child because of the way they deal with grief.

Alan Colmes is known for his mean spirited cheap shots against conservatives. Just like the rest of the MSM.

The only question is why FOX chooses to keep Colmes on the payroll after this.

Except that nobody would have known about it if Rick Santorum had not told them.

He made it a public issue.

Why?

Colmes is the deciding factor for me to cancel my cable, I still have a year contract, but after that it is gone. No more FOX news for me.

I could not stomach Colmes when he was with Hannity, but now he is more disgusting than Carville was.

In every discussion, Colmes is on the most evil depraved side of every issue, and he takes pride in that with that smirky grin. The devils spawn, and FOX failed.

Let’s not forget the other liberals on FNC: Shep Smith, Greg Jarrod, Clayton Morris, Leis Wiehl (sp?), Margaret Hoover, maybe Bill Hemmer and a half dozen or so others.

I know that the producers and writers often project the liberal views that some of the “readers” have to say on TV, but some of the folks I named above often let their liberal bias slip when not reading the scripts.

Pathetic, that Alan still shows up for commentary on Fox News. He was beyond obnoxious then; but never realized just how 'viral' he was; till he was free to speak with even greater independence.

Hope this ends his 'contract'.

You may find it weird, and so may others. I won’t disagree that it seems a little weird. However... I think it took a lot of courage for them to do that. It must have been extremely painful but it shows me how much they valued the life of their son that passed away. It’s none of your business or anyone elses how they handled the death of their son. They did what they thought was right for them and their other children.

Colmes' comment and some of the intrusive comments here shows why we do not have the kinds of candidates we would prefer as conservatives.

A few of the comments profess to be as knowledgeable as if the commenter were a fly on the wall.

To have treated their baby with the love and respect JUST AS IF IT WERE A LITTLE HUMAN AND PART OF THIS FAMILY in order to love and honor it is a very personal thing, and way beyond the purvue of a reptile like Colmes and others who want to titillate over them playing with it like a doll, etc.

When I was a little girl, my grandfather died at home. The men built a wooden coffin. The women lined it with flannel and a homemade quilt and washed the body and dressed it for burial. He was placed in the front hall and family and neighbors sat up with him all night--it was called a wake.

What the Santorums did was their way of coping with grief and making all the family an integral part. They grieved for and buried a child. It was private and should have remained that way.

Thanks for an excellent explanation. Generally, Christians and certainly Catholics recognize the dignity in and of the Word of God that is attached to the “seed”, in Biblical terms. Here we have a newborn, certainly worthy of dignity as a human soul also. To be able to release someone and let them go in a godly manner and with dignity, it would be nice to first actually receive them into the family and with the family.

Another FReeper said that this newborn suffered from a fatal condition which was known and diagnosed by the physicians, and that this cruel remark was more about the fact that the baby didn not get aborted. If this really is the inherent motivation of liberal wickedness, imagine just how dark their world actually is.
