Newt Slams Media For Ignoring Anti-Christian Bigotry (VIDEO)
http://www.therightscoop.com/newt-slams-media-for-ignoring-anti-christian-bigotry/ ^ | 1-7-2012 | The Right Scoop

Posted on 01/07/2012 9:42:42 PM PST by sheikdetailfeather

After spending at least 15 minutes on contraception and gay marriage, Newt finally had enough and told the media the bigotry question goes both ways and that there’s more “anti-Christian bigotry out there than there is concern on the other side” that the media ignores:

Yes and that was a huge slam on Romney and his State and the news media bias. Loved it and heard it live!

Go Newt!!!

I didn’t hear it live, and I’m not a really big Newt fan, but I certainly applaud him for that soundbite!

Newt is at least willing to take on the media.

Newt is a very clever boy. Not only did he get yet another opportunity to slam the media, he tailored his reply specifically to Obama’s stance against Catholic Church beliefs, thus appealing to the reasonably heavy Catholic blue collar population of NH.

Best line of the night and I’m not a Newt guy. Sadly for Newt it probably won’t gain him as much in NH as it would in SC or would have in IA. And even though it was the best line of the night it may be less recalled than Perry’s latest case foot in mouth disease. Methinks Perry is out of feet and munching on other parts here. His staff must be frantic, afraid he won’t last long enough for them to consume his stash.

Newt reminded people tonight why they liked him.

Santorum reminded people tonight why they didn’t like him.

Perry reminded people tonight that he needs to give it up.

Newt always kills in these exhibitions. Sorry I can’t call them debates.
Hope he gets some good numbers out of this one.

NO ONE is nearly as articulate or passionate about this as Newt. It isn’t the only reason I support him, but it’s a biggie.
It was nice to hear Mitt faintly echoing what Newt said, though I doubt Mitt would have ever come up with it on his own (which is part of why I am not happy about the idea of Mitt taking the nomination).

I don’t know folks? This is pretty amazing. That was the most articulate and powerful defenses of Christianity in a public political forum that I think I have heard in all my 54 years. Who else talks like this??? He doesn’t just “stand” for conservative values, he “articulates” them with great clarity! Come on Newt bashers . . . just take a gander at this display. Do we not want this kind of argument being made EVERY DAY??

Newt has a checkered past like a big diner’s floor, but he’s also not afraid to get right in your face and say “what’s it to ya?!” Santorum is cleaner but seems to have a harder time making a case. (He still put in a yeoman’s job in Iowa. If he can keep it up, that might yet slant the race his way.)

Newt speaks and conveys his message easily to the average person and he delivers his message in a such a way that you almost anticipate his message before he actually speaks it. Everything he says just rolls out so smoothly and he truly has a gift and is the best one out of the whole bunch that is able to do this. He would be able to handled Obama easily and also from just this very statement did a number on Diane S. and Stepho tonight which re-enforces my confidence that he can defend himself against the main stream media.

I'm proud of Newt for stepping up like that. Time for all of us to step up and I'm going to do it right now. I'm sick and tired of the whining I see on FR and elsewhere about how the GOP "elites" are "forcing" Romney down our throats.

There is not a single, solitary thing stopping any person who considers themselves a conservative from voting for Newt or Rick Santorum, both very conservative men. No one is holding a gun to any voter's head to force them to mark their ballot for Romney or anyone else.

Candidates self-select. They decide for themselves whether or not to step into the ring we call elective politics. Numerous potential GOP candidates decided not to run. These are the people who stepped up. Like all human beings, they each have their flaws and their strengths, but if we reject them all we will have nothing. Obama wins in a cakewalk.

Right here on FR, a bastion of very conservative politics, every single Republican candidate and potential candidate has had his or her detractors. To hear some people tell it, there is not a single worthy Republican in the country. To some, every Republican is a "RINO," and that's utterly shallow, moronic thinking.

Conservatives do not win consistently and do not advance their agenda for one reason, and one reason only. They ALWAYS make desire for an impossible perfection the enemy of the good. ALWAYS. Secondarily, they have no patience for incremental change which, in a nation of 300+ million, is the only sure way to political success. In other words, they have no patience for governing, but they will sit on the sidelines and carp, bitch and moan about what other people are trying to do.

Well, while conservatives are sitting around whining, at least the people on that stage tonight put themselves into the arena. They stepped up. And there is nothing stopping conservatives from rallying to at least one of them except stupid insistence on unattainable perfection. Just pick one and go for it. And while you're at it, bear this in mind:

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” ― Theodore Roosevelt

Not only did Newt tailor it for maximum impact, he did it extemoraneously. He can think on his feet and is the least likely to end up stuttering during a serious debate. I’d love to give the People an opportunity to be able to compare Obama’s “massive intellect” to Newt. If Newt is the one, I bet Obama severely restricts andy “debates” and that they will be managed so as to tilt the playing field heavily in his favor. ‘Twould be a glorious thing to behold.

Funny thing about having been told you can’t succeed /Once one makes the determination that they have NO support in the nations media-they are suddenly FREE to say whatever they KNOW to be True to begin with. Every one of the others on stage should have roundly applauded Mr.Newt for that—the looks on some faces suggests at some of them agreed but still feel beholden to the power of the press.Newt told the truth others are afraid to tell and will be ignored having told it.

Thanks for posting. There is no doubt in my mind that if we wish to beat Romney and then 0, Newt is the guy hands down. This is not even close. Please South Carolina, put Newt in the lead for good.

We need a fighter and a leader who is capable of communicating conservatism to motivate the electorate. Newt combines these two qualities in a way that is light years ahead of Perry or Santorum.

Mitt will always support comments such as Newts as the desires of his church are to somehow convince the Christian community that their beliefs are Christian...thank goodness the majority of Christian churches today continue to see Romneys beliefs for what they are.. and that is not Christian.

'Newt Slams Media For Ignoring Anti-Christian Bigotry'
Newt steals the ball ... he drives to the hoop ... he shoots ... he SCORES!

Newt puts them in their place better than anyone.
No MSM, p.c. pandering for him.

Though I did like Perry's 'Gun Range' answer too.
That prolly made all those (cough-bs) 'moderators', poop their pants.

I think it’s clear that Newt mopped the floor with Romney in the debates. In fact, Newt was clearly the most intelligent, experienced and forceful man on the stage. That debate really clinched it for me. I don’t agree with Newt on everything, but at least I think he’d make a fine president. He has my vote.

With the exit of Herman Cain from the scene, Newt is the candidate who has shown he can most effectively challenge and go around the mainstream media. Therefore I am leaning his direction.

We must have a candidate who can do this. We can’t play the game of the media wing of the Dem party, AKA the mainstream media.

Newt’s comments may not have won him the nomination but they won Republicans the election. Bigotry against Catholics is rampant in the gay community and Obama is MIA. Gay marriage is a suicide pill for Democrats.
