‘Fed Up’ Gingrich Calls Out Media Refusal to Focus on Extremism in Democratic Platform
News Busters ^ | 9-2-12 | Brent Baker

“I’m frankly, fed up, with the one-sided bias,” a frustrated Newt Gingrich asserted on Sunday’s Meet the Press, citing two blatant examples. First: “Where is the outrage over overt, deliberate racism” in Vice President Joe Biden telling a black audience “if the Republicans win you will be ‘in chains’”?

Second, President Obama “voted three times to protect the right of doctors to kill babies who came out of abortion still alive. That plank says tax-paid abortion at any moment, meaning partial birth abortion -- that’s a 20 percent issue,” a position which Democrats “couldn’t defend...for a day if it was made clear and as vivid as all the effort is made to paint Republicans.”

Gingrich charged: “If the news media spent as much time on the extremism of the Democrats as they spend trying to attack us, they would not be able to adopt that plank this week.” Another guest panelist, New York Times columnist Tom Friedman, declared “I’m a Planned Parenthood Democrat on the issue of choice,” but when Gingrich challenged him to defend the Democratic Party platform support for taxpayer funding of late-term and partial-birth abortion, Friedman called it “a defensible position,” then suddenly decided “I’m here as a journalist, I’ll let the Democratic Party defend it.”

Seconds earlier during the roundtable, NBC News eminence Tom Brokaw maintained Republican opposition to abortion is antithetical to full rights for women. “I think this is the century of women,” he asserted before fretting “there is even among some Republican women out there” the view that the “party doesn’t quite buy into that yet.” He contended “the social issues are very important to women. It’s their bodies, their lives, they feel that it’s not entirely embraced by the Republican Party. That’s my own judgment.”

From the September 2 Meet the Press:

Rape doesn’t have a damn thing to do with it, and everybody knows it.

“Rape” is the scarecrow of the killing fields.

Newt is just amazing in the way he holds liberals accountable to the full logical extent of their positions. Most other people let liberals recite a nice-sounding principle and get away with it. Newt forces them to answer to the reality that principle logically implies which totally undermines them.

Like I’ve said before, Newt must be the least effective “liberal” of all time, since when he took over the House, the entire government including Bill Clinton shifted rightward. He got federal spending as a percentage of GDP down lower than it was under Reagan.

... Which is why a sensible woman should pack some heat.

If we carry a weapon, no really means NO. And it means no even if a potential attacker is armed, too. The attacker will go on his way looking for an easier target. That's why today's fathers should take the old settler approach and teach their daughters about weapons as early as possible and not confine the lessons just to their sons.

Our problem though, is that a lot of daughters these days don't have fathers because families have been destroyed by government. Funny how the Democrat Party claims to be the party of women's rights while constantly fighting to prevent women [and men too] from legally arming themselves so they can assert their own rights.

Liberals don't want people to be able to do anything for themselves, and certainly don't want women to be able to deter rapists. They want to keep everyone in fear so people will cling to the false promises of government protection and the fallback of an abortion when government fails.

The Republicans embrace the fact that women only need physical strength in their trigger fingers.

Sure you can; if you are able to get me on your jury, at the very least I will hang it. If the perp has any priors and they are brought out in trial, if necessary I will brow beat the rest of them into an acquittal. I know it can be done because I have done it before. Come to think of it I haven't been called for jury duty in about 8 years.

He has done more to advance the cause of conservatism than you will ever do. Just what are your contributions lately? Carping and complaining doesn’t count...

The leftard womyn scream “keep your laws off our bodies!” Yet at the same time they celebrate Obamacare, which is a gov’t confiscation of all of our physical beings. Obamacare gives any President the power to appoint anyone they want to the board that approves medical procedures. As a result the government can ban abortion with the stroke of a pen. All it takes is for the political worm to turn....

Idiot leftard womyn celebrate the legislative tool to kill abortion, while accusing Repubs of wanting to pass paws that can be used to kill abortion! Morons indeed.

Is Gingroach gonna have even stronger values with his next wife?

He has more values than you have abilities to make relevant statements.

I totally disagree. There is no such right of taking someone else’s life.

Can a woman get an abortion legally in America today?

Dream for a moment and picture him as White House Press Secretary next term. I know it would be beneath him but wouldn’t he be stellar in that capacity? :)

“legal” and right are two very different things.

I never said it was “right”, I said it was a right and it is.

You don’t know conservatism from liberalism - and your comment just proved it. You are type that should be barred from voting. You can’t even stay focused on what the article is about! America is being destroyed because of such ignorance - consider yourself responsible.
