Newt Gingrich Uses Violent Rhetoric Directed At President Obama In Fundraiser Email [View all]

January 20, 2012
By Stephen D. Foster Jr.

Newt Gingrich is leading South Carolina in several new polls and his violent rhetoric towards President Obama may be the reason why. Not too long ago, Newt Gingrich told voters that not only would he “bloody President Obama’s nose,” he’d “knock him out.” Racist South Carolinians seem to be responding with glee to those remarks so Gingrich is including the threat in a fundraising email.

“From: RC Hammond – Newt

A Bloody Nose Just Won’t Cut It

Dear Friend and Supporter, Speaker Gingrich was recently asked at a townhall event how he would “bloody Obama’s nose,” and his response proved once again why he would be the best Republican nominee for President: “I don’t want to bloody his nose, I want to knock him out!” “

This is clearly violent rhetoric directed at the sitting President of the United States. The sad part is that it seems to be helping the Gingrich campaign. So when are the other candidates going to ratchet up the rhetoric?
