Newt Gingrich Defends Bachmann's Islam Attacks
newser.com ^ | Jul 30, 2012 | Evann Gastaldo

Posted on 07/30/2012 2:00:00 PM PDT by BarnacleCenturion

In a six-page, 2,500-word Politico op-ed (with an attached three-page, 1,800-word appendix), Newt Gingrich makes it crystal clear that he is on the side of Michele Bachmann and her four fellow members of Congress who want an inquiry into whether the government is being infiltrated by Islamic extremists. (He refers to the group as "the National Security Five.") According to Gingrich, the quick and plentiful denouncements of Bachmann's theory are simply examples "of the fear our elites have about discussing and understanding radical Islamists," he writes. "You have to wonder why people would aggressively assert we shouldn’t ask about national security concerns."

"It’s as though our leaders have forgotten every lesson of the 1930s about fascism, Nazism, and communism and every lesson from 1945 to 1991 about communism," Gingrich writes, noting that "political correctness" has taken precedence over security and that the "elites" worry that "if Americans fully understood how serious radical Islamists are, they would demand a more confrontational strategy."

Willard is doing something right

True. But compared to who we have in the WH today ANYTHING would be right and to the right of what Hussein is doing.

.
No, our “leaders” treat Islam as if it is a religion instead of a political movement.

Even worse — they claim it to be a ROP.

islam is a death cult that has declared war on America, killing over 5,000 Americans. Shame on any political office holder in America that refuses to acknowledge that.

For me, Newt is the ONLY one of the presidential candidates who has everything it takes (especially the guts & the patriotism) to turn America around.

Still praying for a miracle here... Gingrich/ Palin in any order! (though I’d be happy to “settle” for Col Allen West if Gov Palin still declines)

The reason the Washingtonians went out of their way to destroy the Gingrich candidacy is precisely because of stand up actions like this.

Either Bachman is right and an investigation needs to happen, or she's crazy and needs to resign.

This must not be allowed to be swept under the rug.

The coward from KOLOB won't touch it with a ten foot pole, so Gingrich will have to apply the pressure.

It's impossible that there could be islamist infiltration at the highest levels of US Government and that the communist left will be able to just deny it and move on like nothings happened.

Aaah, how I’ve come to love this man. We could have had him in the Oval Office and Netanyahu in Jerusalem, the capital of Israel. Things would have been so much different then.

Given that John McCrazy was the first one to rush to a microphone to denounce Michele Bachmann, it does make me smile to know just how much Newt doesn’t give a crap who he pisses off.

THE UNITED WEST-SEMINAR JULY 24, 2012 - THE FIRST, SECOND, and THIRD SESSION

The American West, a group led by Tom Trento, held a seminar on the threat to the United States by Islamists, specifically, the Muslim Brotherhood, with a series of sessions led by Tom Trento and John Guandolo, former Marine and FBI Agent of 12 years.

This is an excellent series. This video is approximately 2 hours long. There are two more videos to follow. COPY this video and distribute it to all your church members, friends and family.

“It’s impossible that there could be islamist infiltration at the highest levels of US Government and that the communist left will be able to just deny it and move on like nothings happened.”

American leftists are cowards and need a surrogate army to knock out the heavily armed and well trained American patriots. That’s why they coodle the islamists; they’re hoping to recruit them onto American soil to start killing us.

It’s also why the chicken leftists are screaming about the self-defense and castle doctrine laws. These laws are giving patriots opportunities for live shooting exercises, gathering necessary supplies and organizing.

The fascists really hate us, and there is no way to live peaceably with these cretins and savages.

An inquiry is an “attack?”

Oh, gee! I made an inquiry. That’s an attack on newser!

I’m in trouble.

What is up with Romney? so far Palin has not been invited to speak at the convention; Newt not speaking. God only knows what is going on with Perry and Santorum. Romney is not uniting the party.
Also, as to Bachmann..after the bashing she gave Newt during the primaries at least he is man enough to defend her when she is right. As for Romney's comments on Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and etc. Romney is following Newt on that one.

I don't follow Romney news, but I think you're right that he has not invited Sarah Palin or Newt Gingrich to speak at his convention.

I remain praying for a miracle in Tampa and short of that, I remain steadfast in my voting decisions, which are not open to change.

He won his nomination without my vote so he can damn well win his election without my vote. The GOP is >this< close to losing me altogether. I'll be voting TEA Party conservative where ever I possibly can.

God bless and keep you, my dear, cherished friend.

Just peeped at Drudge. I haven't visited the site in ages and read that Newt will not be invited to speak at the convention. Have also read that Palin has yet to be invited and of course Cheney's comments on Sarah.
Long live the Tea Party. God be with us dear Onyx. We are in serious trouble. I am still in political recuperation.
Keep fighting the good fight dear heart.

That is a powerful statement,in and of itself.

Strictly for clarification, One who wins a nomination without your vote will not get your vote for the general, or is it just his particluar nominee?

Well then, he’s begging to lose. Obviously, he doesn’t want or need the support from Newt or Sarah supporters or he would ask both of those CONSERVATIVE PATRIOTS to speak in PRIME TIME!

Up his. I am more pleased than EVER with my decision.

Take care, dearest katiedidit1!

Nice balanced headline there. Bachmann hasn’t “attacked Islam,” she has expressed concern about MB influence in the current administration. But the Left prefers to frame it as an “attack on Islam,” hence the headlne.

Open minds are the best kind.

God bless and keep you.

If the good Lord had not seen fit to smile on my sorry self, numerous times, I would not be replying to you tonight.

You stay safe, and believe in what you know.

He is always watching, and will do what makes you advanced.
