#EndorseThis: Gingrich Calls To ‘Test Every Person Here Who Is Of A Muslim Background’

Share

In the wake of the horrific attack in Nice yesterday, Newt Gingrich appeared on Fox News to assert that “Western civilization is in a war” with Islam and that individuals “of a Muslim background” in America should be tested for their adherence to sharia: “If they believe in sharia, they should be deported.”

As David A. Graham of The Atlantic has pointed out, though, this is impracticable, unconstitutional, and incredibly intolerant. Although it is often used in American political parlance to signify extremism, “sharia” refers to the Muslim code of conduct, not an official set of laws or a declaration of war.

Deporting individuals based on their religious beliefs seems about as explicit an example of a violation of the First Amendment right to the free exercise of religion as you can find… aside from most of the rest of Trump’s ideas.

The man who is not Donald Trump’s VP pick also has a pretty extensive history of comments targeting Muslims, even though prior to the mid-2000s he had relationships with conservative Muslim groups and even helped create a Muslim prayer space on Capitol Hill.

Taking to Twitter today to defend his remarks, Gingrich derided what he called the media’s “amazing distortions” of his remarks, announcing that he would host a Facebook Live conversation at noon. Check it out here.

But the fact remains: Prosecuting a religion is un-American. There’s no way around it.

Would Gingrich use the same logic to prosecute visitors to white supremacist websites like StormFront, or anyone who uses the hashtag #whitegenocide? Right wing extremists commit terrorism, too — just as much as any radical cult. Does Gingrich want thought police?

    Guys like this are going to go down in history as complete laughing stocks. It is time to put an end to Fox News who give microphones to these bigots. Perhaps we should have IQ tests for Fox viewers and deport them for low scores.

        May you be the first one deported. Maybe we will let you back in when your IQ reaches double digits. Unlike you I do not live in fear and sit in a trailer all day masturbating.

          I’ll just go back to the reservation. Maybe I’ll let you back in.

          I’ll just go back to the Reservation. I don’t want back in.

    Let’s take that a step further, Newt. Let’s test everyone in this country whose ancestors came from another country……that includes you, Newt.
    A philanderer like Newt ought not to be casting aspersions at any other person in this whole country. He’s a liar and a proven cheat. He never met a woman he wouldn’t leave alone in the hospital while cheating on her with another woman. Family values my foot!!!!
    If anyone should be kicked out of the country, Newt should be first in line. There was a good reason why his own party cast him aside long ago. But this shows us how two faced the republicons can be. Now they love him. They even love that draft dodging, child molesting Ted Nugent. Remember how much they hated him back during Nam?

      Leave Newt alone, every presidential candidate cheats. He also had a hand in building a Mosque for the- should be outlawed – sect . Kindness and appeasement does not help with these rogues of humanity.
      They have proven themselves not to assimilate with western cultures even after generations. It is not a religion but way of life that relies on subjugation of thes weak mentally challenged people’s . Other immigrants come to the welcoming doors of the US and become part of the dream instead of creating a nightmare . Even the Irish and Jews and Italians , Hungarians, Polish , Asians – fairly nasty ppeoplws by themselves – manage to get along along. What gives with you bass tard Moslems. Time to go back to your homes, we will pay for your trip . Get the F out .

      And Hillary wants more of these misfits to be imported.

        I’m proud of you Leftout. You’re opening a hornets nest of ridicule here for yourself from these naive snowflakes on this site for the most part. Good luck with em…lol

        1. Leftout July 15, 2016

          I know , never lost yet , I only relate my life experiences, some even think I am a racist. They are indoctrinated and have no facts… I am here to show them the way to enlightenment. I do not think they know others than thier own family members. Help me out won’t you , Jim!?!! ????????????????????????????

          1. Jim Samaras July 15, 2016

            Oh, you can count on me Leftout. There is something seriously wrong with these people who, with all the facts out there, still support this Hitlery hag. I believe them to be mainly teachers, who need tenure and union protection, or low level government employees that know their time will be up under a Trump presidency

          2. jmprint July 15, 2016

            It’s OK Leftout we will let you lead the way off the cliff, go ahead.

          3. Leftout July 15, 2016

            Thank you , you are at least tolerant of my insistence that if in America comply with our culture. This Worked for millions of earlier immigrants , and I turned out Normal .!!!!

          4. jakenhyde July 15, 2016

            @Leftout. ….I can see how you got left out. You mentioned the Irish who started street gangs that did NOT comply with our culture. You mentioned the Italians who gave us Al Capone, Jimmy Hoffa and the rest of the mafia that did NOT comply with our culture.
            You mentioned Hungarians. I imagine you’d rather see George Soros go back to Hungary.
            Nearly all the immigrant groups who first came to this country did not fit into our culture immediately upon arrival.
            We imported thousands of Vietnamese in the 70s. If you want to see some of the most ruthless gangs in the country, go check out Fresno, Calif.

          5. Leftout July 15, 2016

            I only agree with Soros , that he must be shot when ever he would surface. All others have eventually assimilated after one generation, even the Irish who do not recipes for anything and Italians who make up the deficit. The Viets have only been here since the 70s and after one generation have given us some beautiful women , compared to the burka hooded camel faced Females?? Also Viets make Asian great food that is very safely eatable. Most immigrants come with thanks , but not the …….

          6. jakenhyde July 15, 2016

            @Leftout….So….you encourage the murder or Mr. Soros because this particular immigrant doesn’t fit your idea of what an ideal immigrant should be….no doubt your ideal immigrant would contribute lustily to the republicon party.
            You’re not only left out….you’re a loser and obviously a racist. Thank god most REAL Americans don’t think as you do.

          7. Leftout July 15, 2016

            Did not know Hungarians were a different race, their language is certainly , like no other. George has been involved in international treason for many years supporting sedition to bend countries to conform to his economic theories. More importantly he supports groups that case disruptions in the natural democratic processes in this country.

          8. jakenhyde July 15, 2016

            I was referring to your obvious xenophobia….especially against those who do not get in lock step with your way of thinking. George Soros is no worse than the Bros. Koch or Adelsen who would change our country’s constitution to suit themselves and serve their egregious money mania.
            Even The Donald has screwed the little guys over many times. Every time he committed bankruptcy, he shafted the contractors and their workers. Let’s face it, if The Donald can’t make a profit on a casino, he’s not nearly the businessman he’d like the country to think he is.

          9. Leftout July 15, 2016

            No xenophobia, I am very open, but do not like people who seek comfort in this great Country and then abuse it and even try and Change or destroy it. Closing the borders is only a security issue for me. As Trump would say” I Love Mexicans”; they work hard and but can easily be confused w Mid East types. crossing the borders.
            Trump is a Construction expert and builds things for others. In construction everyone is trying to maximize their

          10. jakenhyde July 15, 2016

            Trump likes Mexicans because he can use them and then not pay them. He’s done it many times.

            You lie. Trump never built anything that wasn’t going to make him money. Trump never “builds things for others”. He’s the most self-aggrandizing man in this country. So full of himself that he believes his own lies.

          11. Leftout July 15, 2016

            We all work to make money and. Of Course Trump uses workers, as we all are being “used”, by our employers or Clients to perform a function / make money – ever try living without it ; not paying workers is unusual , they will not come back. Not paying the overcharges of subcontractors is another matter.
            I pay laborers workers for the job as I negotiated, usually 40/hr around here for sealing roofs , to mulching , cutting grass, general hard work, more for Trade people as needed. I do it myself it it gets too expensive if I am knowledgeable.

          12. jakenhyde July 15, 2016

            Quit making excuses for Trump. You may pay your laborers. Trump has a long, long history of stiffing his laborers….period. He’s got enough lawsuits against him for nonpayment that it will keep the local courts busy for years.
            Face it, Leftout, he’s a blatant cheat. Why anyone in the world would sign a contact with him is beyond rational thinking.
            Did you even check out the link I sent you about his non-payment lawsuits? I thought not.

          13. Leftout July 15, 2016

            I am not making excuses, he has law suits like some on complex transactions, Nonone should sign a contract with anyone unless you get 3 bids to compare costs to see if you are in the ball park with your financial expectations. I am familiar with construction contracts as others. If you ever built a home , it is very easy to have work change overruns. Do not do this , buy an existing unless you have mucho extra discretionary financial reserves. I live in Trump land and know him. He is a hard deal maker.

          14. jakenhyde July 15, 2016

            Trump is a crook…pure and simple. He has a life long history of screwing people over. Witness his scam called Trump U. And you ARE making excuses for him. You’re trying to make him sound like a solid citizen. He is not.

          15. Leftout July 15, 2016

            Do not know him as a crook, Law suits are common and are often opportunistic. I do not know of the outcomes of the law suits.
            Trump U , I read that 70 % of Course takers gave good marks for functionality, seems equivalent to taking a college course on Marketing and Sales. Many take these career changing courses with expectations higher than their ability to practice the principles. These high pressure seminars are not for everyone, been there and walked out on a few and learned it was not me.
            Some take these courses for self improvement , others take it to venture into potentially new paths. Real Estate sales and buys can produce high yields. But, you must be patient, and have a good eye for bargains. you must have a back up income while you suffer. It is not for the faint of heart. I personally have done well on my own during the high days, 20 years ago. I just had a knack for value and did not intend to make out financially. I bought because I liked the properties. It took all I got to see it through.

      2. jmprint July 15, 2016

        The driver of the truck in the bombing in France was a citizen of France, just like most terrorist here. We really should get to the root of the hate, and not whip on good people that the only fault they own is their religion.

        1. Leftout July 15, 2016

          Their ideology is so ingrained , they get reclusive for fear of others and do not get Americanized even after a full generation on their home countries , France, Belgium, Britain. These are all Modern welcoming countries , until Now . These people make their own problems by not having other than havong suspician of thier host countries. They fail To develop an open personally and not able laugh at themselves. Round them up and send them home. Home Countries will never submit to thier customs .

          1. A_Real_Einstein July 15, 2016

            Maybe we should not intervene in their civil war, get out of the way and let them fight it out. We bring this on ourselves. Nothing good has come from our military invention in the Middle East. There will be no long lasting peace until we exit the region. I say we remove every troop and stop with the military aid. I realize the military industrial complex will never agree. Profits over people.

          2. Leftout July 15, 2016

            Did we intervene in WWII. Our friends , olde country , families were being decimated , we had to help. Fortunately for the Russian winter and rearming of Russians they were able to seek vengeance on Hitler and probably had enough anger to have taken all Of Germany that year.
            The Middle East should have been left alone. Would you have helped Kuwait after Iraq flagrantly invaded their borders.

          3. A_Real_Einstein July 15, 2016

            We did not intervene in WWII. Pearl Harbor brought us in. No I may have not gone into Iraq with ground troops over Kuwait. NOT OUR FIGHT.

          4. Leftout July 15, 2016

            I see your point on Kuwait, But WWII was prodding us to help , we did have pacifist tendencies till finally attacked. we were fortunate to mobilize after a period of living on a premise there are no bad guys out there…..we were caught unable respond to help , and lucky to be protected by many miles of Oceans. This gave us time to recover …barely.

      3. jakenhyde July 15, 2016

        You’re right. Newt should be totally left alone…..in a dungeon somewhere.

  3. Jim Samaras July 15, 2016

    Islam and specifically Sharia, is more a form of government than it is religion. These are desperate times that we’re going through in Western civilization. If Sharia were an issue during the framing of the constitution I’m sure the first amendment would have been amended by our astute fore fathers. Anyone who believes we should welcome any of these animals with open arms is truly part of the problem and not the solution.

        If either of those websites were ACTUALLY causing the civil unrest like BLM I would like to think the American people would stand in unison against it. Totally different situation however but I commend your attempt to refute my desertion that Sharia law is a form of government who oppresses the very causes the democrats allegedly fight for. Womens’ rights, freedom for gays, etc. The country is beginning to wake up to the hypocritical nature of the left wingers and will prove that to you come November

        1. A_Real_Einstein July 15, 2016

          Thanks for the belly laugh. Trump will be anhilated. The Senate will go Democrat in November and the House in 2018. GOP RIP. Feel fortunate the Bernie is not running or we would taken the House back this year and gained a supermajority in the Senate. Thanks for running Trump and giving us back the Supreme Court. Have a nice day, loser.

          1. Jim Samaras July 15, 2016

            You are true to your name aren’t you? Loser? Really, because my view differs from yours? Glad I’m entertainment for you but if the truth hurts that bad get back to moms basement and call her to make you a sandwich. Your party is so worried that the black vote won’t be out in the mass numbers they were for Obama, which they won’t, they’re attempting to rile up the blacks enough to get them out en mass. BLM being funded by your boy Soros proves just that. Things will go back to normal after the election when all lives will once again matter

          2. Dominick Vila July 16, 2016

            George Soros? Are you talking about one of the investors that funded the construction of Trump Tower?

        2. johninPCFL July 15, 2016

          Yes, Sharia is a form of conservatism. They’re just more successful in actualizing their bigotry than conservatives have been so far in the US.

          1. Jim Samaras July 15, 2016

            You believe them to be successful huh? They are in their own countries that you democrats support. Throwing gays off buildings and giving women no rights at all. Is THAT the type of bigotry you support john? You’re comparing them to the republicans? You are delusional

          2. johninPCFL July 17, 2016

            They have implemented the GOP desire that gays return to the shadows or be killed (depending on which GOP member you ask.)
            They have successfully implemented the GOP platform plank outlawing abortion, complete with the “punishment” for the pregnant women.
            Perhaps implementing the GOP platform planks is not your idea of success?

  4. tb thomas July 15, 2016

    Sharia Law is just one of the more fully developed strains of radical Islam which insults fundamental secular principles of civil rights under what we refer to as Western Civilization. So does White Supremacy. So does Black Lives Matter.

    That said, another founding principle of Western Civilization is that we don’t “test people for their beliefs”, and impose sanctions on them based on someone else’s interpretation of what those beliefs might or might not be. We hold people accountable for their actions when they transgress our rule-of-law, and then, only after a fair trial and verdict by a jury.

    I hope Newt Gingrich has the wisdom to disavow his remark on this subject. I found it foolish, and if he insists on repeating it, I agree that it is offensive to everything I believe this country aspires to stand for.

    The leaders of Black Lives Matter have had plenty of time to disavow and condemn the calls by some of their members for murdering cops, so it’s a little late, but I would still appreciate hearing them do so. While they’re at it, they could also repudiate the slogan and damnable lie: “Hands up, don’t Shoot!”, but I’m not holding my breath.

    Last but not least, I would like to hear our President & Hillary Clinton repudiate their relentless assertions that we have a problem with “systemic white racism” in this country, in our police forces, our judiciary system, and on the part of all “White Americans”. We do not have any such problems that are ‘systemic’ in nature. We have isolated instances which are statistically insignificant, and serve only the purposes of demagogues.

    We are a pluralistic society, and like all societies of human beings, there are individuals who hold views and engage in behaviors which others find distasteful and regrettable. But in the aggregate, I believe this country has achieved a level of tolerance and comity amongst a diverse population, second to none on this planet. Those who trade in “identity politics” in order to advance their political or financial fortunes, should be condemned and shunned.

      You say a lot of laudable things, but you leave a visible trail of crumbs that show that you don’t understand why the gesture and slogan “Hands up, don’t Shoot!” is a damnable lie. Obviously, you are white and have never had to look over your shoulders, nor your parents and their parents simply for walking down the streets.
      Like many who revert to an intellectual argument without real-life experience of the daily plight of the oppressed in America, you fail utterly to understand the true aspects of the problem. Your approach is largely academic devoid of much empathy aside from the usual slogans of “pluralistic society”, your absurd notion that we need to repudiate that there is systemic racism in America, ad nauseam.

      So stop with the pretense at lauding what the country should be like and finally affirm what the country’s ethos is all about and what it is based on. Those lofty notions that America stands for mean nothing so long as you stubbornly insist that the problem only lies in the imaginations of the descendants of slavery in America.

      Are you capable of that?

      1. tb thomas July 17, 2016

        The carnage which is being wreaked on tens of thousands of innocent Americans by culturally depraved Black thugs is bad enough, not to mention the Liberal consensus that the media must maintain a prohibition on reporting the horrific, day-to-day reality of that (escalating) violence. Far worse, the despicable lie that it is a consequence of “latent or congenital white racism”, and the unconscionable notion that it is somehow excusable due to “a history of violence against Blacks in America”.

        You have the temerity to suggest my conclusions are “academic”, “amoral” and “lacking empathy”, then drag up sophomoric references to “lynchings”, “our parent’s parents”, and Emmett Till. Meanwhile, back in the real-world, you ignore the routine atrocities being inflicted on innocent Americans (of every color) every single day.

        I could easily cite several dozen incidents which have taken place in the last year alone, which make Emmett Till’s fate look like a mercy-killing — all at the hands of Black sociopaths — who rationalize their atrocities based on the despicable narrative you’re peddling.

        I honestly can’t decide who are the more contemptible: the thugs, or their feeble-minded apologists, of which you are a pathetic and prototypical example.

        1. Aaron_of_Portsmouth July 17, 2016

          Ah, that explains your amoral attitude—being an atheist. One thing you do believe in is the worship of having a haughty and arrogant attitude for you to use the phrase “culturally depraved black thugs attests to the depravity of your superior air. Yes, you are an armchair academic because you speak with such a typical colonial manner. A belief in your superiority is a form of worship, albeit it a worship of the idol called Smugness.

          Lack of any religious sentiments clearly show us to what depths of despair you have sunk to.

          How do we know this? Your tone is one of glee to associate yourself with being exalted above those “depraved “thugs” as you define them. Notice that you never use that terminology to define the actions of the KKK and Nazis of old, or of white racists in today’s America—which suggests you are more aligned with them and other satanic forces and therefore can only offer condemnation instead of suggesting a way forward. Since you aren’t part of the solution, you are clearly an integral part of the problem.

          Fare thee well, reincarnation of Thomas Malthus.

          1. tb thomas July 17, 2016

            Touched a few of your nerves I guess. I’m just trying to figure out what your master’s degree is in: Armchair Psychology, or Mind-Reading.

            I guess this must be a special day for you “Black Lives Matter” hypocrites. It seems some “highly educated morally superior thugs” managed to kill three more cops, with a fourth hanging in the balance.

            Bottom-line: Liberalism is the clinical personality disorder which has reached pandemic proportions since we elected the Race-Hustler-in-Chief. (With my vote in 2008, unfortunately.)

            PS: the word ‘atheist’ simply describes someone who does not ascribe to theological beliefs as an explanation for the origin and nature of life. Your attempt to turn it into a pejorative of some kind is entirely consistent with your comic-book views on race, culture, and real-world human behavior.

        2. Aaron_of_Portsmouth July 17, 2016

          One other crucial note you must reflect on: Since you affirm yourself to be an atheist you therefore have no moral compass to be able to offer a solution to a problem that is spiritual in nature, i.e., the absence of empathy, no logical reason to see yourself as being a part of those “thugs”, have no basis for affirming any connection with the black experience aside from reading the cold amoral philosophies and assessments of materialists and treating the matter in a cold clinical fashion(which is part and parcel of your negation of a Creator,
          you are therefore imminently unqualified to offer anything of substance to the conversation—PERIOD!
          Therefore, you would do best to remain atop Mount Olympus and continue regarding the affirs of the black community in an imperious manner.

          To point you in the direction to rehabilitate a flagging soul, I commend to you a study of and reflection on the meaning of this aphorism by Baha’u’llah:

          ““O Children of Men! Know ye not why We created you all from the same dust? That no one should exalt himself over the other. Ponder at all times in your hearts how ye were created. Since We have created you all from one same substance, it is incumbent on you to be even as one soul, to walk with the same feet, eat with the same mouth and dwell in the same land, that from your inmost being, by your deeds and actions, the signs of oneness and the essence of detachment may be made manifest. Such is My counsel to you, O concourse of light! Heed ye this counsel that ye may obtain the fruit of holiness from the tree of wondrous glory.”

          Based on the above, it should be clear to you that your views are based on the false premise that humans have no cord connecting them to each other. This false premise leads you to a callous reference to the killings of black youth by black youth as merely a case of “culturally depraved thugs” who aren’t as elevated as you are. That’s a typical attitude of an atheist, again because of having no moral compass, and ipso facto no conscience.

          An atheist with racialist and racist sentiments is far more sinister and untrustworthy than a racist/racialist who at least affirms that humanity all came from the same Source.

          1. tb thomas July 17, 2016

            FBO, anyone looking in on this generally absurd “conversation”…

            Actually (in the real-world), empathy, a highly evolved characteristic of the mammalian brain, is the glue that enables mammals to form coherent, mutually beneficial social orders. The primitive part of the brain which enables empathy is inherited, and is nurtured over time by a protective parent or parents.

            The key to the power of empathy is that it is involuntary. This is particularly important in human societies, because it reinforces trust between otherwise completely autonomous members of the same species. Adult humans who lack the involuntary constraints on anti-social behavior that empathy provides are known as “sociopaths” (aka: psychopaths, although the general consensus amongst clinicians seems to be, the two are synonymous).

            To suggest that a person who doesn’t believe in “a deity”, or “a divine moral compass” is, therefore, a sociopath is simple-minded at best, and entirely self-serving when put forward by someone attempting to “prove” their particular set of moral conceits. In fact, the moral and ethical bedrock of this country is a set of secular principles considered by our founders to be derived from “natural law”, and stated in their simplest form consist of: “…life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

            In particular, our “Freedom of Religion” is a secular principle which, by it’s very nature, excludes theological acts of faith from consideration in our rule of law. The diatribe supplied above by “Aaron_of_Portsmouth” is a case-in-point which proves the wisdom of the founders as they both guaranteed the right of citizens to celebrate and follow their myriad “belief systems” in private, while prohibiting the application of those belief systems under public authorities.

            The imposition of arbitrary moral or ethical beliefs in a democracy, in-effect negates “Liberty”, and leaves “Fascism” in it’s place. Aaron_of_Portsmouth is a classic example of a fascist, who poses as a liberal and a democrat.

            Liberalism, as practiced in this country in this century, is a tyrannical dogma which requires fascism in order to survive. It is an arbitrary set of political beliefs designed to preserve the hegemony and advance the self-interests of a wannabe permanent majority, operating in the guise of a democratic republic.

            As Lincoln observed in 1858:

            It is the eternal struggle between these two principles — right and wrong — throughout the world. They are the two principles that have stood face to face from the beginning of time, and will ever continue to struggle. The one is the common right of humanity and the other the divine right of kings. It is the same principle in whatever shape it develops itself. It is the same spirit that says, ‘You work and toil and earn bread, and I’ll eat it.’ No matter in what shape it comes, whether from the mouth of a king who seeks to bestride the people of his own nation and live by the fruit of their labor, or from one race of men as an apology for enslaving another race, it is the same tyrannical principle.

            Case closed.

    This must be an exhausting time to be a liberal in America. As enemies of the West, the radical Left (redundant, I know) has time and a again held out an olive branch to the other enemies of the West, Islamist – only to draw back a bloody stump.

    It’s a terrible thing to loose one’s religion, the pious belief that Leftism and Islam should have found common cause in their blind hatred for Western Civilization.

    The emotional distress caused by an uncooperative reality initially called for a doubling down on the Left’s irrational doctrine, but since this has epically failed, what now?

      It’s exhausting to be a Phil Chritensen whose surname is contradictory to the root of said name.

        At times it can actually be exhilarating. Oh, there are occasions when I have to deal with the usual liberal dissonance, but it’s mitigated by getting to wake up knowing that I get to be me for another day! God bless you, Aaron. Hope you feel better soon.

          God bless you? That’s an atypical sentiment for you, isn’t it?
