Newt Gingrich has become, frankly, a hate-mongering bigot

Newt Gingrich went on Fox last night to peddle more of his hateful, vile garbage regarding the so-called “Ground Zero Mosque,” which is not at ground zero and is not a major mosque, but an Islamic community center.

“The idea of a 13-story building set up by a group many of whom, frankly, are very hostile to our civilization — and I’m talking now about the people who organized this, many of whom are apologists for sharia, which is a form of law that I think we cannot allow in this country, period,” Gingrich said.

Once again, my longstanding Gingrich Rule proves valid. Whenever the man utters the word “frankly,” what follows is almost always the opposite of frank speech. It is instead absolute baloney. In this case, he alleges that many of the people involved in the proposal to build the Islamic center “frankly, are very hostile to our civilization.”

That’s a serious charge, and neither Gingrich nor anyone else has provided any evidence whatsoever that it is true. With inflammatory remarks of this sort, Gingrich makes Joe McCarthy look measured and responsible.

Any grudging respect I once held for the man is now gone.

There is no such thing as grudging respect. You respect something or you do not. And I guess I missed it but where is the bigotry. To say many muslims want to harm us? To say that many Arabs want to harm us?

Tell you what. Lets build a Jewish synagogue in Iran, and see how that works. I remember during the flag debate, liberals were all over symbolism. Any evidence of life before the Civil War had to be erased, and one was the devil himself if he dared say he was proud of his heritage. This is all about symbolim, not about bigotry.

1. McCarthy was always more measured and responsible than the left gave him credit. He was a zealot and was often out of line, but his accusations were based on credible FBI intelligence.

2. I call a 13 story community center 2 blocks from ground zero a major mosque at ground zero.

3. Newt should have backed up his accusations with facts as the accusations were being made.

McCarty was an alcoholic who hated liberals period, and did all he could to ruin them. The people he went after mostly were idealists believing in the dream of Communism, and not the fact of the USSR.
Communism was supposed to be a workers paradise, all equal, all sharing, all giving union of people. The young are naive sometimes and he took advantage of it for political purposes. The FBI used inuindo

The unbecoming Newt is becoming difficult to differentiate from Rush. With his inability to answer any questions regarding proof that the center is to be funded by those “hostile to our civilization”, without any explanation as to why Mayor Bloomberg and New York Attorney General Cuomo support the building of the center, I surmise that this a Newt knee jerk reaction. Given an association test with the words ground zero and mosque, Newt responds with “terrorist”. So much for the Newter Gender.

People of the Muslim faith and culture killed thousands and destroyed the twin towers. The expressed goal of this center was to promote a cuddly feeling between each other.It isn’t working. If the goals were so altruistic the proponents would have excused themselves and sought a less controversial location. They have not, they just push harder. Muslims do not practice alternate faith tolerance. We, on the other hand, want to take tolerance to its’ inevitable ending point, surrender.

I had Newt as a professor at West Georgia, where I had a chance to see an actual,NeoCon transformation, from “liberal” Democrat, 180° to tight-fisted, withholding Republican, when a convenient seat opened up, and the prevailing political winds seemed beneficial. At his weekly card game with friends, he reportedly cheated, regularly and badly, a habit extended to all of his (now ex) wives. Greedy ambition virtually defines this sociopath, whose identity problems from his tumultuous past dog him with a vengeance until yet. Newt actually created the current paralytic acrimony in our government at the birth of CSPAN, spewing seamless vitriol against opponents to an empty house chamber during dinner hours. “Go negative early” he cajoled his colleagues, with his black political skulduggery dovetailing nicely with Karl Rove’s brilliant re-working of Goebbels, Stalin and Mussolini’s time-tested techniques, updated with tweaked and digitized Atwater push-poll exercises.
What a demonic team! There has never been a better one at what they do, and a national propaganda network at their disposal makes things tres-efficient.

Should the front row center seat in the White House press briefing room go to FOX News or NPR?

They’ll decide next Monday

FOX News is a right-wing propaganda operation, not a legitimate news organization. Award the seat vacated by Helen Thomas to NPR, which has provided public interest coverage of the presidency and the White House for almost four decades.

Dear Friend,

In just a few days, the White House Correspondents Association will decide which news organization will be awarded the seat recently vacated by Helen Thomas. The news organizations most actively vying for the seat are FOX, NPR and Bloomberg News.

Tell the White House Correspondents Association: Give the best seat in the briefing room to NPR, not FOX!

FOX News is a right-wing propaganda outlet, not a legitimate news agency.

In recent weeks the network has turned the volume up on its race-baiting political agenda. The media assault on Shirley Sherrod is just a latest in a series of racist and politically motivated attacks on targets like Van Jones, ACORN, and Eric Holder’s Department of Justice.

It’s bad enough that we have to fight the constant smear campaigns and appeals to racial paranoia from FOX and the right-wing media. We can’t let them have the best seat in the White House press briefing room and the legitimacy that it confers.

NPR has had a full time White House correspondent since the 1970s. The public radio network regularly reaches 27 million listeners with its news programming.

The Board of the White House Correspondents Association will make its final decision during its upcoming board meeting on Monday, August 2. So it’s urgent that we take action on behalf of NPR now.

Thank you for working for a better world.

godless,

You could have written that on the back of a postage stamp. But Dubya, well, his gaffs are encyclopedic in comparison.

“Mr Bookman,

You are part of what is wrong with this country. A towel loving muslim
you sob.”

RICK…what do YOU use to dry off with after a shower? Or do you simply not take them when coming out of your cubby hole?

Rick DeNeve,

“You are part of what is wrong with this country. A towel loving muslim
you sob.”

And you are evidently so much part of what is “right” with it…

“A Southern Heritage Museum at the MLK site? The MLK Center IS a Southern Heritage Site”

Now, now…of course you’re correct, but we just KNOW that he didn’t have the courage to say what he MEANT: a CONFEDERATE Heritage museum next to the MLK museum.

Since we are speaking of right-wing blowhards here, I wonder if you’ve seen this:

I don’t know about the racist or bigot stuff but do know this: Newt is no intellectual. We need to retire the idea.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: “(and Sarah too. I think her approvals are slightly higher than the Ebola virus, there.)”

Hey don’t make fun of Sarah… she’s never heard of such a virus and if you explain it to her…she’ll confuse it with West Nile and think we need to start that “war against mosquitoes” again… remember THAT “fright”…??? hehe… I’m pretty sure more people have died over the past few years from the toxins they inhaled when we “dust cropped” suburbia in many places compared to those that actually died from West Nile.

joe,

The problem is that the dispersants that were used have caused the oil to, well, disperse. That does not mean it has disappeared. It is under the surface of the water and, therefore, not where the skimmers could do anything. The long-term results of the oil spill are still very much uncertain.

“That’s a serious charge, and neither Gingrich nor anyone else has provided any evidence whatsoever that it is true. With inflammatory remarks of this sort, Gingrich makes Joe McCarthy look measured and responsible.”

And since you so conveniently failed to also provide evidence to the contrary, you are in the same boat. How about proving him wrong before sentencing him…………….
