Gingrich: President Exhibits ‘Kenyan, Anticolonial Behavior’
Mr. Gingrich, who is mulling a bid for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012, made the comments to National Review Online. He was quoted by the conservative Web site as saying: “What if [Obama] is so outside our comprehension, that only if you understand Kenyan, anticolonial behavior, can you begin to piece together [his actions]? That is the most accurate, predictive model for his behavior.”
Commenting on a recent article in Forbes by Dinesh D’Souza, Mr. Gingrich told National Review Online that Mr. Obama “is a person who is fundamentally out of touch with how the world works, who happened to have played a wonderful con, as a result of which he is now president.”
“I think he worked very hard at being a person who is normal, reasonable, moderate, bipartisan, transparent, accommodating — none of which was true,” Mr. Gingrich was quoted as saying.
Of course, Newt is a racist bottom-feeder.
And a fraud.
And a Valued Fox Employee.
And the brains of the Right.
And a blithering joke.
Newt also knows perfectly well what he is doing, because he knows that for more than 30 years the soul of the Right has been a howling, mindless lynch-mob forever hungry for their next bonfire.
The proof has been there all along, plain as day every day, for anyone who bothered to look.
Of course, "nice" Conservatives (who are too emotionally catatonic to deal with it) and gutless Centrists (who are simply too damn cowardly to take a stand or make a single, undiluted judgment about anything) cannot face this fact at all.
Of course, a handful expat Conservatives have begin to edge up to this ugly truth and poke at it briefly, but are still driven by the desperate need to believe all those bad people just magically showed up 10 minutes ago -- without warning! -- and that they're all somehow aberrations and freaks, and not real Conservatives.
Collectively, these groups represent the greatest single act of sustained, willful political self-delusion in modern history.
Meanwhile, as they busily lie themselves to sleep at night with ever more massive doses of delusion and absolution, the soul of the Right goes right on being a howling, mindless lynch-mob forever looking for their next target.
And for their next leader.
