Heckler Interrupts Santorum Speech

News

"Get your hate out of our state.”

GOP presidential hopeful Rick Santorum was interrupted by protesters multiple times while on the trail this weekend in Oklahoma. The Wall Street Journal has more:

But at rallies in Oklahoma City and Broken Arrow, protesters sought to prove otherwise.

At the Capitol, Occupy Wall Street protesters repeatedly interrupted Mr. Santorum, trying to drown out his speech with chants of “Pro-life, pro-war, what are you fighting for?” and “Get your hate out of our state.”

Santorum supporters shouted back with “We pick Rick!” The former Pennsylvania senator initially said that the protesters had a right to their opinions but should let both sides be heard. After they persisted, he suggested that they should work a “little bit instead of coming to these events and screaming at people.”

At Grace Church in Broken Arrow, a heckler started yelling as soon as Mr. Santorum took the stage. The heckler was quickly removed.

“Like I said, it’s always great to feel welcome here,” Mr. Santorum said with a smile.

Here's video from one of the interruptions:
