Based on Gingrich being known as one of the greatest fighters in conservative history.
I cant imagine someone who lived through the history making 1994 conservative revolution, forgetting that incredible national onslaught against its leader, Newt Gingrich, until Palin, we had never seen anything like it.
I still have boxes of publications and newspapers from the time, the rage from the left was terrifying, people died, were destroyed, the federal government was killing people and burning them out in the Midwest, and in what had previously been flyover country, the heartland.
The left was sending a message to middle America, that they were not outside the reach of Government and the new policies. Middle America was to be taught that their God, and guns, and tax complaints, and conservative rebellion would not be tolerated, the 1990s became a dark period of open war by the hard left as led by the Clintons, and the conservatives led by Newt Gingrich.
The media was as radical as sharks smelling blood, and Newt as the opposition leader, was its biggest target.
No doubt whatsoever.
Newt was THE MAN in the 90’s.
“Newt Gingrich and the Republican Revolution” 1 hr and 35 min. There are a lot of people still learning about the 90s, and this is pretty comprehensive..
