Newt Gingrich becomes the new Joe McCarthy

What is wrong with Newt Gingrich?

He was once thought of as "the thinker" of the Republican Party, an intellectual.

Putting Gingrich in perspective among his fellow Republicans, Bill Maher remarked on Hardball:

"Pygmies cast large shadows among midgets."

- Bill Maher on Newt Gingrich, MSNBC's Hardball 9/21/10

Does anyone with some level of intelligence actually believe Sharia law to be such a threat that he has to warn the United States Supreme Court:
"And we should make clear to Justice Breyer and Justice Kagan, who both seem confused on this topic, that no judge will remain in office who tries to use Sharia law to interpret the American Constitution."
- Newt Gingrich, Values Voters Summit, 9/18/10

Well Newt, maybe you should warn our Justices not to use Swedish Law, or Japanese Law, or Icelandic Law, as well? What would warrant such a foolish statement? Perhaps to cash in on teabagger white KKKristian Islamophobia?

What is wrong with this picture.... that a majority (52%) of Republicans now believe Obama is sympathizes with the goals of Islamic fundamentalists to impose Sharia Law? (Princeton Survey - 8/27/10). Could this perception have been applied to a Hillary Clinton? Never, it's clearly about race.

This level of Islamophobia is absurd. The teabaggers represent an ignorant and hateful bunch - truly a low mark in the devolution of American politics.

Check this out - TX Board of Education wants to ban "pro-Islamic Bias" in textbooks. Pro-Islamic bias??????? Could these assholes be any more paranoid or hateful?

Even worse, Gingrich characterized President Obama mindset as:
"so outside our comprehension, that only if you understand Kenyan, anti-colonial behavior, can you begin to piece together [his actions]... That is the most accurate, predictive model for his behavior.”

-Newt Gingrich, National Review, 9/11/10

This is the same guy who called Justice Sotomayer a "racist." Why is this guy so paranoid and hateful?

What is wrong with Newt Gingrich's brain? Why are these teabaggers such a hateful bunch?

You made a nasty comment that people who believed that text books are pro-islamic are nuts. When was the last time you actually read a text book used in the public schools. I have three children in the Warren County school system. My oldest attends the high school where his World History book has one chapter on Christianity and three on the rise of Islam. In one of the chapters he is required to learn the five pillars of Islam!! It sugar coats Sharia law and doesn't bother to mention beheadings, stonings, forced marriage of young girls, legal rape of the wife, etc. My middle child's social studies book has a section on 9-11 which completely fails to mention ISLAMIC terrorists!! You obviously don't have a CLUE what you are posting about!!!!!

"Anonymous", obviously you've never met a Muslim. Bet you know plenty of 'tea baggars' and 'wing nuts' though.
