This is not the first time Santorum has warned against pre-school indoctrination. As the Huffington Post reported in May, Santorum spoke to a South Carolina audience and compared pre-school to his grandfather's experiences in Fascist-era Italy:

Rick Santorum, a possible candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, even raised the specter of Benito Mussolini's Fascist Italy in a speech here Friday night while explaining why his grandfather emigrated to the U.S. His uncle, he said, "used to get up in a brown shirt and march and be told how to be a good little fascist."

"I don't know, maybe they called it early pre-K or something like that, that the government sponsored to get your children in there so they can indoctrinate them," Santorum said.

Progress overnight on deployment of new commenting system. We hope to move into a short beta-testing phase shortly.
