On Sunday, former House Speaker and presumptive 2012 Republican Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich was addressing Cornerstone Church, a megachurch in San Antonio, Texas, led by the Rev. John Hagee, an influential leader among American evangelicals. It was there he expressed his worry that the United States could become “a secular atheist country, potentially one dominated by radical Islamists.” There were no reports of his head exploding from the apparent contradiction. In fact, the line was met with cheers and applause from the group.
One has to wonder if Newt somehow managed to actually envision a secular theocracy bent on opening up a big can of Jihad on God himself. I strongly suspect he stayed up all night on Saturday trying to figure out how to include gay pacifist baby killers into the speech as well.
This is a blatant and egregious example of the fear selling I wrote about yesterday. Guys like this have given up on even the pretense of rationality. This is simply stringing together buzzwords that don’t even form coherent sentences.
Look out! Terrorist, homosexual, Nazi, socialist, intellectual elite, sprout eating, flag burning, tree hugging, liberals are coming to steal your money and murder your children! Oh, and I have a bridge to sell you too. Friggin’ idjits.
