Bigot of the Month of August - Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA)

Senator Rick Santorum receives the dubious distinction of being the Bigot of the Month of August due to his vociferous, anti-Muslim statements.

Due to the latest polls stating the 63% of the American public disapproves of how the Republicans are handling the situation in Iraq, Mr. Santorum is propagating his Islamicphobic message that Americans have a "common enemy" [Muslims] and that our war in Iraq is against "Islamic fascism."

During this charged election season, Mr. Santorum is attempting to play on the fears and general illiteracy of the American public about Islam by equating Islam with the doctrine of fascism, which was practised by the likes of Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini.

Just one year ago, Mr. Santorum suggested that Hurricane Katrina victims should be punished for not evacuating New Orleans before the storm hit.
