MSNBCs Rachel Maddow lambasted Newt Gingrichs speech in Florida tonight, criticizing him for singling out President Obamas singing. Newt Gingrich brought back the food stamps president thing and then tonight, he went to President Obama ought to stop singing, ought to stop being the Entertainer-in-Chief. Sort of caricaturing him in a way that calls out to minstrelsy!
Hes going after a southern mentality, and racial allusions, always wrapped around when he refers to the president, when he talks about this food stamp stuff, MSNBC anchor Rev. Al Sharpton observed. These are Newt Gingrich is many things, stupid is not one of them. He knows exactly what hes saying, he knows exactly who hes playing to, when you look at that map, when you deal with the northern border of Florida, which is southern Alabama, he knows what card hes playing.

I’m white. I am wearing white tennis shoes.
Your point is well taken.
/heavy and deep seated sarcasm
Reflecting her own racism. Her interpretation. The way her mind works is clear to see who the racist is.
When I play pool, I try to avoid pocketing the 8-ball until it’s the last one on the table, does that make me a racist too?
I watched his speech tonight.
He mentioned Obama’s name, but I’m pretty sure he was mocking Romney also, since Romney’s been singing, too.
“The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.”
Love, your friendly racist *gak* Grammie
Who even remembers seeing a black slave minstrel any more in the USA? Obama should send that person a congratulation for being the oldest man or woman in the USA.
Democrats call everything racist, particularly any criticism or mockery of them. Of course, when they are mocking Republicans, it is just good ole fun in their book.
Who even remembers today what a minstrel was? Gingrich is doubtless thinking rapper.
Donald Trump told Greta the other night that if you criticize Obama you are a racist. No need to expect otherwise. Look at Juan Williams finding racism under every rock. Too bad.
Racism isn’t what she’s after. It’s just more of the same stuff they did to him after he wrecked their world. Every writer of every paper of every magazine of every news show and every democrat accused Newt everyday of some vile thing with no let up. I saw it, it was horrible. This is just more of the same. They hate him.
And they hate us...
Oh, yes. Some of are hated more, conservative AND Christian.
Yep...ya got THAT right!
“God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty.... And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.”
They have the government, the media, the courts, the schools, they have your money, and we have a picture of George crossing the Delaware. And it’s hanging crooked. We are no longer citizens, we have been made out to be insurgents. So be it.
