WASHINGTON - Rick Santorum, former Pennsylvania U.S. senator turned CNN political commentator, seems to have his own twist on the origins of the United States, which includes the erasure of Native American culture.

In a speech last Friday at the Standing Up For Faith & Freedom Conference for the Young America's Foundation, a conservative youth organization, Santorum portrayed a country built on faith and freedom. Santorum said the country was set up based on Judeo-Christian principles, and that white settlers "birthed a nation from nothing." A clip of his speech went viral on social media.

Santorum said non-Native people came to the country and created a clean slate.
