Gingrich: Gangs Have Increased By 40 Percent Since Obama Was Elected
Real Clear Politics ^ | July 21, 2013

Posted on 07/21/2013 10:19:47 PM PDT by grundle

NEWT GINGRICH: This fits perfectly with what I was going to say earlier. You have a congressman -- and I respect Bobby Rush. You have a congressman who represents the most violent city in America. You have a congressman who represents the city in which over 500 people were killed last year, 74 percent of them African-American. You have a congressman who represents the city which is 80 percent of the killings, according to police, are by gangs. Gangs have increased -- let me finish. Gangs have increased by 40 percent since this president was elected. There is no federal program to stop it. No one wants to have an honest conversation about it. And so you have a congressman whose own district is bleeding, who puts on a hoodie as a symbolic act, but he doesn't do anything about the gangs in his own district.

Obama is an evil curse on America.

We will never see one single decent thing come from this demon.

Rush certainly has some nerve invoking the Bible. He quotes Micah 6:8 willy-nilly; but would Micah 6:12 perhaps hit a little close to home for him?

Newt states a few inconvenient facts and the liberal chickens start running around squawking. Still fun to see.

He’s right. We’re not allowed to have an honest conversation about the youth gangs who have laid waste to big portions of all of our major cities.

We’re not allowed to talk about ghetto culture, the gang culture, the baby mama culture, or any of the other social pathologies in the ghetto. Because, to do so would be racist. So, per politically correct theology, we just ignore said problems.

“we’re having this National Summit on Urban Violence. This was before the verdict we had planned this. The congressional black caucus is coming into Chicago so that we can work on solutions to this problem.”
A national summit? congressional black caucus?
Ah, yes — let’s do some talking. These people do not want to stop the gangs.

It’s actually classified as a target program.

Night time basketball is pretty effective as a lure for the targets to congregate.

It is the horrible job market coupled with the inability of cities like Chicago to stop the illegal drug industry. It is something that makes one think that politicians are paid off by the drug cartel not to fix the problem.

Is it not obvious that the Democratic party creates the bulk of the problems for black Americans and then presents itself as the only viable solution to those problems? Republicans have very little input into the social, educational, and economic policies that govern the inner cities where we have the biggest problems. I think it's obvious what kind of game they're playing. It's the same game a drug dealer plays with his clients which is particularly fitting analogy actually.

And Newt respects him? That’s part of the problem right there! How can anyone have respect for someone like Rush? He is a criminal with no respect for law and does not belong in government.

And to the NSA trolls, FU.

Gingrich has a pair and is not afraid do tell it like it is.

The President has put the nation on notice that he does not represent all Americans.

He represents and advocates only for blacks, muslims, homosexuals, lesbians, enemies foreign and domestic, lawyers, race hustlers, and Federal apparatchiks.

He’s also set back race relations to post civil war levels.
The POTUS has no business being involved in the Zimmerman case on any level, because it is not a Federal issue.

Just like the invasion of Pearl Harbor awakened a sleeping giant, the OUTRAGEOUS behavior of the DC apparatus with regards to this matter as well as the trampling of the Bill of Rights by this communist sympathizer in the WH and his allies in the media and the Federal Civil Service have drawn very clear lines with respect to the attitude of us chumps outside the beltway who work for a living and are subject to extortion of our paychecks via the IRS.

To quote Honest Ape Lincoln:

You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.

The TAXPAYERS are done with being fooled.

Watch Hillary ugly retard genius do the same thing, wedging families and race down the middle.

These two admire each other. They are loner loosers who some how found a foul way to power to get some celebrity status out of crimes against humanity and enjoying seeing divisions and confusions amongst people who would otherwise be ok with each other if left alone.

There is no federal program to stop it.

Nor should there be, according to Article 8, Section 10, and the 10th Amendment. This problem is owned by the City of Chicago, Cook (?) County, and at the highest Constitutional level, the State of Illinois. It's up to them to fix it.

I saw the interview. He did a great job on the Zimmerman trial when debating Van Jones. Jones tried to say everyone on the left has been nonviolent. I sent Newt a link to the WFTV article about the death threats a woman is getting in Seminole county over the Zimmerman trial. The police are averaging 400 death threats per minute on social media. Newt needs this kind of ammo to combat the lies told by Van Jones.

A friend from Chicago recently stated, “Put a big fence around Chicago and let ‘em all go at it. Sooner or later there will be a lot fewer to deal with when the real revolution begins.”......

While I don’t see his idea as the ultimate solution, it does have its merit. It is those unfortunate innocent people that would suffer and/or die during the process.

There HAS to be a solution if only someone would meet it head on.

I guess what Bobby Rush is saying is that all that black on black crime is because blacks tend to wear hoodies.

We're not allowed to talk about ghetto culture...

Hopefully there will be an unintended consequence of this whole thing. It s**** that Zimmerman has to suffer, but it's bringing out the anger that's been fermenting for decades. Of course, blacks should have equal opportunity. The problem is that the rabblerousers always want more, and the government and most people pander. The result is a totally dysfunctional out of control underclass that is now demanding that decent people not even be allowed to defend themselves.

My question keeps getting louder in my mind. If Trayvon felt threatened, why didn't HE call 911? I know, it's a ghetto thing to not want police involved in anything, then be horrified when they aren't there. These presidential speeches, fake rallies, stars who don't have to live that life should've had one message for "their people"...call 911 ! There should just be one message for the panderers....those inner city neighborhoods need jobs, real jobs, not federal fake program stuff.

The other message is law abiding citizens, all races, are not about to give up their second ammendment rights or their right to defend themselves.

"...we just ignore said problems..."

The best option, IMO, is admit defeat in the WOD and let the druggies have their stuff. Tax the bejeezuz out it and sell it in state/federal/city/county-wherever stores. If the addicts can get their chit, there won't be the turf wars that we're seeing in all of the cities today.

It'll create a whole new slew of problems, but the gang-bangers will have to settle down and bribe the government officials in a civilized manner to get in on the action.

About time the elected elite have to deal with the monsters that they've created.
