Gingrich: Democrats Want to Impose 'Secular-Socialist Machine'
FOXnews ^ | May 16, 2010

Posted on 05/17/2010 5:31:26 AM PDT by chickadee

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.

I still say that obama's "secret mission" is to convert America to Islam...but he has to do it in a sneaky way because - unlike France and England - we're all armed.

Socialism and secularism are just tools to help him achieve those ends. Tools of the fool.

Is the human induced global warming ad you did with Nazi Pelosi part of that machine Newt?

That’s an interesting take. Muslims are harder to herd than cats, though.

I haven’t much use for Newtie, either, but he is the one with the guts to say this on national TV. It needs to be said over and over until the clueless get a clue.

And Newt just wants to share a cozy moment on a couch with Nazi Pelousy and control the climate. Of course to do that [attempt to control the climate], you have to control corporations and people in a robotic manner without concern for those standing in the way.

Go away Newt...... you've done enough.

From article: “...”socialist” because the Obama administration wants to determine salaries, own corporations and provide health care...”

Fascism: “A system of government marked by centralization of authority under a dictator, stringent socioeconomic controls, suppression of the opposition through terror and censorship, and typically a policy of belligerent nationalism and racism.”

Socialism: “Any of various theories or systems of social organization in which the means of producing and distributing goods is owned collectively or by a centralized government that often plans and controls the economy.”

Marxism: “The political and economic philosophy of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels in which the concept of class struggle plays a central role in understanding society’s allegedly inevitable development from bourgeois oppression under capitalism to a socialist and ultimately classless society.”

I see elements of all three in the Obama administration:

Centralization of authority? Yes.

Stringent socioeconomic controls? Yep.

A policy of belligerent racism? Uh. Yeah.

A centralized government that often plans and controls the economy? Definitely!

Concept of class struggle plays a central role? No doubt.

You be the judge!

And there's the rub. Newt is the best idea man on the right. The present leadership hasn’t had an original idea or strategy and will never have one....but Newt steps in his own sh*t constantly. Backing Rhino's, hanging with Hillary, etc.

You’ve convinced me - Newt should go away - now that he has dropped this verbal stink bomb into Obama’s lap. We will take it from there.

Gingrich: Democrats Want to Impose 'Secular-Socialist Machine'

As opposed to the faux Christian-Statist-Machine favored by Beltway Republicans.

Actually, Newt should go on the air and go through the numbers:
First, I wish to offer an apology for further the man made global warming hoax that the left is using as an excuse to implement 0bama's dream of a Secular Socialist America.

Since CO2 as a whole only makes up three and half percent of the greenhouse effect, and naturally occurring CO2 makes up 97% of the total CO2 in the atmosphere, you can see that the remaining ZERO POINT ONE ONE SEVEN percent of man's effect on the climate is laughably negligible,

it becomes totally obvious that there is another agenda at work here. Ask those who promote the idea of man made global warming what their real agenda is in light of these facts.

And again, I apologize for my former ignorance.

Your services are NOT required. Please, just find somewhere remote to live out the rest of your life, then die quietly.

“Secular-socialist machine?”

Why not just say “fascist” and be done with it? (I guess it’s the history professor in Newt that won’t allow him to use a simple definition when a wordy one makes him sound so much smarter?! / sarc)

So Newt has a book out on how to save America? He should have started that when he was speaker of the house instead of folding up like a cheap lawn chair.

Newt was right to use the more neutral term. It promotes discussion. The left has worn out the term “fascism”.

While I agree it needs to be said - over and over and to the point that even the stupid and indifferent understand and acknowledge it - Newt is the last person to provide the message.

Agreed.

We may not see him nor want to see him as POTUS but at least he is out there saying this! Good!

That is excessive. Newt knows what is right, and knows how to say it in the right way. He's an idea guy, and is extremely valuable.

That said, it's true he got into the "lets work together" mentality with the democrats and took some very wrong positions. Like McCain, he could not accept the idea that this bunch truly have evil intents for our country and our culture. He lost the courage of his convictions. He has admitted he was wrong about Obama and is speaking out effectively. There are precious few on our side that get it philosophically. I think Gingrich does.

The Democratic party has been taken over by the communist party since 1991. Just look at the leaders and the sheep who call themselves democratic!

So many of them have a long family history of voting Democrat. They are FDR’s legacy . . . and we all know what he was.

At least Newt figured it out. Too late smart, on 'that' one; but do appreciate that he is now on 'fast forward'. Cannot think of a single Repub spokesperson who has not gotten in the wrong line - i.e. the one I am not standing in - at one time or another. Whether they ever realize it; matters.

Don't think it helps to go back and 'batter' when we need so many voices to move so many, forward. No 'Perfect 'Ten' scores out there.

Agree. . .(there can be no question as to Obama's Muslim sympathies) just not sure Soros shares quite the same level as Obama; but for time being; it does not matter. Islamist and Leftists share the same bed; just get out on different sides.

Fat chance of that happening. Newt is a prideful guy. Apologies and mea culpas are not in his vocabulary.

And Newt's willing to help.

Newt sold Americans out by siding with Nancy Pelosi on the Global Climate Change hoax.

You beat me to it....first thing I thought of when I saw this.

The Climate Change lie, and more broadly, environmentalism writ large, is a fundamental building block of what Gingrich attacks as a “Secular-Socialist Machine”.

What Newt says is true. Newt, on the other hand, has “progressed” to join Dems in a bi-partisan desire for the imposition of a global fascist regime upon America. I guess he thinks it is going to be Christian. We all know how the banksters and UN love Christians.
