If This Man Becomes President---We're So Screwed!
Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich is on the campaign trail, well, so to speak. He has not made a formal announcement, but is waiting in the wings.
For those of you who are not familiar with Newt, he's a right wing theocratic hypocrite who left his wife while she was in the hospital recovering from cancer surgery. At the same time, he was sleeping with, and then married, his assisstant.
He's another blowhard fanatic who believes that people of faith, i.e., christians, are a persecuted minority. Check it out:
All 43 American presidents – even those who doubted religion – associated themselves with the Christian faith. Today, it is still far easier for a politician from a fringe religious sect, such as Mormonism, to be a serious national candidate than it would be for an atheist or an agnostic.
Yet, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is basing his political comeback, in part, on an assertion that the real bias in America is against those who believe in religion and that “radical secularism” is oppressing them.
“This anti-religious bias must end,” Gingrich told an enthusiastic audience of graduates from the late Rev. Jerry Falwell’s Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia.
Gingrich’s strategy appears to be to repackage the Right’s lament about the so-called “war on Christmas” into a year-round campaign to make Christians view themselves as victims of evil, all-powerful secularists and liberals.
