Rick Santorum Compares Obamacare To Apartheid

Most tone deaf reaction to Nelson Mandela's passing officially goes toooooo....Rick Santorum.

During an appearance on Fox News Thursday night, Former Senator, and failed Republican presidential hopeful, Rick Santorum discussed the death of Nelson Mandela, saying the former South African president fought "great injustice" just like Republicans who are battling Obamacare.

"Nelson Mandela stood up against a great injustice and was willing to pay a huge price for that. That's the reason he's mourned today, because of that struggle that he performed," Santorum said. "But you're right, I mean, what he was advocating for was not necessarily the right answer, but he was fighting against some great injustice, and I would make the argument that we have a great injustice going on right now in this country with an ever-increasing size of government that is taking over and controlling people's lives, and Obamacare is front and center in that."

Not to be outdone by the crazy shit Santorum says, Bill O'Reilly claimed Mandela "was a great man, but he was a communist."

"I would never attack Nelson Mandela," O'Reilly said next.

Right...

Mandela was South Africa’s first black president and fought apartheid rule. He passed away on Thursday at the age of 95.
