Two years ago, July 29, 2010, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich delivered a singularly astute and courageous address. Reactions to that speech across the political spectrum, whether immediate or delayed, illustrated the contemporary equivalent of what the greatest historian of Soviet Communist totalitarianism, Robert Conquest, appositely characterized as "mindslaughter" -- a brilliantly evocative term for delusive Western apologetics regarding the ideology of Communism and the tangible horrors its Communist votaries inflicted.
What did Newt Gingrich have the temerity to discuss? In defiance of our era's most rigidly enforced cultural relativist taboo, Mr. Gingrich provided an irrefragably accurate if blunt characterization of the existential threat posed by Islam's living, self-professed mission: to impose sharia, its totalitarian religio-political "law," globally.
With vanishingly rare intellectual honesty and resolve, Gingrich described how normative sharia -- antithetical to bedrock Western legal principles -- by "divine," immutable diktat, rejects freedom of conscience, while sanctioning violent jihadism, absurd, misogynistic "rules of evidence" (four male witnesses for rape), barbarous punishments (stoning for adultery), and polygamy:
"Sharia in its natural form has principles and punishments totally abhorrent to the Western world, and the underlying basic belief which is that law comes directly from God and is therefore imposed upon humans and no human can change the law without it being an act of apostasy is a fundamental violation of a tradition in the Western system which goes back to Rome, Athens, and Jerusalem and which has evolved in giving us freedom across the planet on a scale we can hardly imagine and which is now directly threatened by those who would impose it."
Moreover, Gingrich warned about efforts -- deliberate, or unwitting -- to represent sharia as a benign system:

If Newt knows anything, he knows history, and the history of Islam is an evil, bloody trail.
Newt Staunchly Defends Bachmann, et al. on Muslim Brotherhood Influence-Peddling
Haven’t heard much from Newt lately. Wonder if he is assisting Romney with his campaign, or if Romney wants his assistance. Just askin.
Those attacking Bachmann are afraid of what they might find if they investigate Huma Abedin.
Unfortunately liberals live in a state of perpetual delusion. They have no more capacity to understand the Islamic threat than they do basic economics. The modern liberal Democratic Party is the greatest internal threat to the well being of the United States since the founding of the Confederacy.
RE: if Romney wants his assistance. Just askin.
How does Newt for VP sound? I’d like to see him debate Joe Biden.
How does Palin for VP sound? Id like to see her debate Joe Biden.

You mean you like to see a rematch?
You can see the original match in 2008 here:
“How does Newt for VP sound? Id like to see him debate Joe Biden.”
That would be my choice, don’t think that would happen.
Hey thanks. :D
(watching right now)
Wow she’s come a (long) way since then.
Great post, thanks.
BTW, the progs in the comment section are on suicide watch.
You are correct, Bachman’s courage stirs up cowardice.
