Rick Santorum: 'Smart People' Will Never Be On Our Side (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Rick Santorum, the former presidential candidate, had a message for attendees of the Values Voter Summit on Saturday.

"We will never have the media on our side, ever, in this country," Santorum said, according to BuzzFeed and a video posted by Right Wing Watch, available above. "We will never have the elite, smart people on our side, because they believe they should have the power to tell you what to do."

"The basic premise of America and American values will always be sustained through two institutions -- the church and the family," the former Pennsylvania senator added.

The Value Voters Summit, which is sponsored by FRC Action, the lobbying arm of the conservative Family Research Council, runs through Sunday.

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R - Minn.), Glenn Beck, Kirk Cameron, Gov. Mike Huckabee and Gov. Mitt Romney are among other scheduled speakers.

Paul Ryan's speech on Friday was interrupted several times by protesters.
