CHARLESTON, S.C. Supporters of Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum were shoved and a baby stroller was left knocked over after a group of Occupy protesters disrupted his election-night gathering and threw glitter on him Saturday night.
The ruckus occurred after Santorum made remarks to supporters following his third-place finish in the South Carolina primary Saturday night. One female protester threw glitter on him before quickly being escorted away.
The protesters yelled phrases suggesting they disagree with Santorums stance on gay issues.
They chanted bigot! as they were escorted out of the auditorium at the College of Charleston along with at least five other young people.
At one point in Santorums speech, a protester yelled out, unless youre gay. Santorum continued with his remarks without any reaction.
As Santorum entered the auditorium Saturday night after the results were announced, his supporters chanted, we picked Rick.
Santorum, who won the Iowa caucuses, vowed to fight on in the primary and take his campaign to the next contest in Florida and other states. The former Pennsylvania senator said during an interview with CNN that the race is going to be a long one.

These people are violent, brownshirt, Nazi thugs.
To the wall, street occupiers!
We are all with you on this, Rick.
Badge of honor.
Most people in politics aren’t honorable enough or courageous enough to make it worthwhile for the Left to protest.
Well done, Rick.
“Officier, may I suggest you use your nightstick.”
Interesting to see who the leftists targeted.
The Marxist left knows that once Obama goes down in November it will end their quest for a Communist America, this is why its SO important to stop these cockroaches now before they grow. Stomp their asses in Nov and they will crawl back underneath the rocks where they came from for another 100 years
In particular I remember how they disrupted Cuban professional baseball games -- I bet the OWSers try that this Summer.
After the Revolution the stadiums were used to execute Cubans -- they were put up against the outfield fences, if I recall correctly. Thus the famous cry, To the wall!
Left wing parasites.
It’s coming. For sure. Be prepared.
I wouldn't be so sure of that. Given all the hatred and vitriol I've seen directed toward Santorum on this board the last week or two, I'm guessing there are at least a few nominal freepers reading this and secretly cheering for the occupiers.
Exactly. And this ought to be a guide in who we should support.
I like your style. This will be a doozie, me thinks.
well the gays already hate Newt for what he said here
I can't see any difference.
They must think what I think: that Rick’s decency, goodness, courage and ability to articulate the strong moral basis of his conservatism and Americanism have made him the likely VP selection for either Romney or Gingrich.
The other big fight has been between him and Paul. They’ve been very testy with each other. It’s one or the other—Santorum, or in in Paul’s case, his surrogate for VP.
The left has tipped its hand.
Astroturf ping. Thanks Tailgunner Joe.
A man is known by his enemies as well as his friends. Rick is just speaking truth to degeneracy, and they are not happy.
After RuPaul was finished with his incoherent ramblings, it’s obvious where many of his supporters ended up.
Yeah, Santorum is one of those 1%er Wall Street mega-banker/mega-financiers that the group allegedly came together to protest.
As I’ve said along, they are just another group of commies out to attack anything and anyone to their right.
I heard stories from delegates and activists at the Republican National Convention in Miami in 1972 who told how leftist protesters tried to storm the event. However, the security prevailed, and many were arrested.
As they sat in paddy wagons roasting in the heat of a South Florida summer, Young Republicans and Young Americans for Freedom taunted them, saying, “you look like monkeys in there. Hope you suffocate!”
If voter fraud does not keep Obama in office, be prepared for the powder keg to blow! These creatures will riot and turn our cities into infernos.
Exciting times, my FRiends...exciting times.
We can judge a person by their enemies, as well as their friends, and this shows Rick Santorum to be a mighty good man.
