Gingrich Calls Dems the 'Brown Shirt Party' in Response to Protests, Remarks By Clinton and Holder

Newt Gingrich Calls Democrats the ‘Brown Shirt Party’ in Response to Protests, Remarks By Clinton and Holder

by Joseph A. Wulfsohn | Oct 10th, 2018, 10:10 pm

On Wednesday night, Fox News contributor Newt Gingrich slammed the Democratic Party for the lack of civility that has been expressed in recent weeks.

Sean Hannity began the segment by listing several examples of incivility from the left, citing the protest confrontations of Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Florida Attorney General Pat Bondi, DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), the Democrats’ “abandonment” of due process and the presumption of innocence during the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, and citing remarks made by Hillary Clinton––who said Democrats “cannot be civil” with Republicans––as well as former Attorney General Eric Holder, who said “when they go low, we kick them.”

The former House Speaker responded with a pretty grim analogy.

“Well, what you’re seeing the emergence in a very weird way of a brown shirt party, to use the term for the people who in Weimar Germany went out and literally dominated the streets by brute force,” Gingrich said. “They can’t win. They didn’t win in the Senate. They didn’t win in the presidency. In my judgment, they’re not going to win on Election Day and they’re becoming more hysterical, more anti-democratic, more willing to destroy the system. Abraham Lincoln warned that there are people that oppose us so much that it is either their way or they’d destroy it. And I think that we’re faced with that kind of opposition. So, I mean, let’s have an open public debate. If you think people like Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton should be allowed to impose their will by brute violence, then you ought to vote Democrat. If you think that’s profoundly wrong, then you ought to vote Republican.”

2. Motherfucker, the Repukes are about to be the Brown Pants Party

And I'm not talking about "dominating the streets by brute force;" I'm talking about dominating the ballot box by huge numbers. If we can GOTV, and keep doing so until we get rid of these fucking assclowns.

Also, this invocation of Abraham Lincoln that these people do is just ridiculous. Fuck Newt Gingrich; he's a fucking asshole.

5. Expect this to become the gop din,

this will be the main rightwing talking point during the mid-terms. Of course, the din will be peppered with lies about how Democrats are trying to destroy social security, Medicare, education, etc. by not privatizing everything.

6. Go crawl back under your rock, Newt.

Nobody cares what you have to say. We haven't forgotten what a scumbag you are.

7. Hey Newt, your Fuhrer said he'd pay the legal bills

of any Deplorable arrested for beating up protesters. That sounds a lot more brown shirty than some mildly strong words from Clinton and Holder.

(and, good luck to the Deplorables collecting on that Trump promise)

8. I never click on Wulfsohn's writing. He's a total right-winger.

Name calling is all Gingrich has. Wonder if he’s still looking for fun in his driveway, with his kids playing nearby. He’s a disgusting pos. So there’s your name calling for you, Newt.
