Newt Gingrich: Warns You About Democratic ‘Secular-Socialist Machine’

May 17th, 2010

I see Newt has another book to push, so it’s lest see what we can say to grab headlines and get TV time to promote the book. But he is making some serious accusations so we better take a look.

Here is a link to the Fox News Article and below are some quotes with my comments.

Democrats are trying to impose a “secular-socialist machine” rejected by most Americans, an unapologetic Newt Gingrich said Sunday.

The former House speaker described Democrats as “secular” because those in power in government are beset by a “relentless anti-religious bias”; “socialist” because the Obama administration wants to determine salaries, own corporations and provide health care; and a “machine” because the agenda is being pushed robotically without concern for people standing in the way.

Further down in the article Newt is also quoted as saying:

Gingrich said that he stands by his argument that the “secular-socialist machine” represents as great a threat to America as Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union, not in the sense of the immorality of those deadly regimes, but as a “threat to our way of life.”

Where do I start?  I guess the best place would be the most outrageous part of his statement.

“secular-socialist machine” represents as great a threat to America as Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union

Did I read that right,  He is comparing the Democrats to Nazi Germany?

I could have this wrong, but the thing going on in this country today that most compares to Nazi Germany is a new law that requires American Citizens to carry papers to prove they indeed are legal citizens.

No matter what your opinion is on illegal immigrants ( and we will talk about that in another post) it’s not to far a stretch to see the comparisons to how Hitler started to round up all the Jews by first requiring them to show papers.

Oh yea did I mention that this is a Republican administration in Arizona that past this law, and it has the support of prominent Republicans like Palin that just spoke in support of it at a rally with the Arizona Governor over the weekend? And one more thing..  Obama is on recordas  being against the wording in this new law that would allow you to be pulled over and asked to produce papers for little reason.

Now lets take a look at some other enlightening things that he says:

Obama administration wants to determine salaries

I can only guess that he is talking about the administrations outrage that these companies that were baled out by tax payers money went on to pay crazy bonuses to employees while taking tax payers money to stay in business?

own corporations and provide health care

He is probably right, we should of left GM and Chrysler along with all the millions of jobs go down the tubes… after all there is no history proving that baling out an auto company will work.

Wait I seem to remember Chrysler paying back a bale out and even though the  Government still owns 61% of the new GM, they have already paid back their loans to the government.  I predict that the tax payers will make money on GM stock in the years to come as they slowly sell it back to the public.

And providing health care to Americans that had no chance to ever getting it before this new law… that does sound like a Soviet plot to me :-)

and a “machine” because the agenda is being pushed robotically without concern for people standing in the way.

I continue to hear that everything is being forced on the American people and that the majority of people didn’t want health care reform or don’t want Bank reform or whatever… were was this majority in the 2010 election?

There is no surprises here, this administration is ticking off the boxes of it’s campaign promises and nothing more… they have scaled back some of those promises trying to get some bipartisan support which has angered the base, but I think getting bipartisan support on issues was one of the campaign promises too.

they just nationalized student loans so they’re now all 100 percent government program,” Gingrich told Fox

Facts: The Congressional Budget Office estimates this will save the federal government between $6 billion and $7 billion per year. For more than 35 years, the government has paid private banks billions of dollars in subsidies to encourage them to lend to students, then  the government guaranteed the loans anyway.

If this law had been passed by a conservative it would be the greatest fiscal conservative legislation know to man, but because it was passed by this President it is a socialist plot.

Well this all does sell books and continues to keep the misinformed that have no desire to take the time to research and learn the real truth all stirred up….  Sadly this is how elections are won.  I thought the country finally started to think on their own and looked pass this style of politics, but it looks like we are in for another wave of say anything (forget about truth) to win politics.

This is wy I’m calling for the FCC to do their job, which will be my next post.
