Word's out yesterday that Newt Gingrich, one of the signature Republican weasels out there, has a new book in which appears this statement: “The secular socialist machine represents as great a threat to America as Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union once did.” He's since reiterated the statement while at the same time lauding his argument as "compelling."
You know I get so bloody tired of these people who throw raw meat out to the others out there who are far less informed about what's true and what's not. Let's face it, Gingrich is not stupid. He's got an M.A. and Ph.D. in Modern European History from Tulane University, no slouch school. He's a former Speaker of the House of Representatives, has written a number of books, and he makes a quite a nice living, thank you very much, as a speaker and consultant these days. But he still suffers from two insufferable (to the rest of us) ailments: runaway ego inflation and diarrhea of the mouth. Apparently these have been lifelong ailments, and in his case incurable. Plus he's consumed by the cancer of ambition. The little lying weasel wants to be president, and his long rodent nose is sniffing an opportunity with the Republican party in disarray with no real leader at the helm.
So he's out there anywhere somebody is willing to give him a platform for his jive. But note also another character trait of this guy. In addition to all his other attainments he's also a fucking serpent who dispenses lies by the bushel to the far less intelligent and informed than himself. Gingrich knows that Barrack Obama is not a socialist. He knows, knows in his bones, heart, and head that Administration policies present nowhere near the threat to this country that Adolf Hitler or the Soviet Union did. So what kind of scumbag dispenses what he knows to be false and inflammatory to legions of slavering bumpkins who know nothing about Nazism or Communism or socialism but who hate Obama with a burning, mindless rage? A callous, soulless opportunist like Newt Gingrich, that's who.
