Rick Santorum Addresses His President Obama “N*gger” Comment

Comments:  | Leave A Comment

Several YouTube clips showing presidential hopeful Rick Santorum speaking at an event in Wisconsin in which the outspoken Catholic appears to nearly utter a racial slur in reference to President Barack Obama has sparked an online debate about what the GOP candidate might have actually said.

Santorum’s campaign denied accusations that he uttered the n-word, reportedly calling such claims ridiculous. Nonetheless, the former Pennsylvania senator’s intelligible flub has observers debating what he actually said, almost said, or meant to say, during the March 28 Janesville, Wis., event.

Dozens of clips of Santorum’s speech, in which he criticizes the president’s political policies, appear on YouTube, all of varying lengths. What appears to be a full clip of the Republican candidate’s remarks, however, was published by JATV Media Services also on YouTube (and can be seen below). Santorum is heard at about the 34-minute mark saying:

“We know, we know the candidate Barack Obama, what he was like – the anti-war, government nig uh, the uh America was a source for division around the world. That what we were doing was wrong and we needed to pull out and pull back.”

Political commentator and Syracuse University professor Dr. Boyce Watkins writes in a column for NewsOne: “I’ve watched this video 14.5 times. I’ve meditated on it, prayed over it, laid hands on it, and sent it to my mama.” Watkins concludes in his commentary that the video clip of Santorum is proof “that he is every bit as racist as we’ve always known him to be.”

Some have suggested, however, that Santorum might have been trying to say “negotiator” or “peacenik” while stumbling over his words, but made a very poor recovery.
