Here’s globalist Gingrich trying to strike a tough pose, Trump-style, and of course playing into the left’s hands:
“Let me be as blunt and direct as I can be. Western civilization is in a war. We should frankly test every person here who is of a Muslim background, and if they believe in Sharia, they should be deported,” Gingrich said in an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity.
It may sound tough on the surface, and of course to the left it’s as a red rag to a bull, but if you look at what he is saying it is politically safe, if not PC. Does any informed rightist think that asking Moslems if they support sharia will draw honest answers?
And Gingrich’s next sentence betrays his real stance, which is PC to the core:
“Sharia is incompatible with Western civilization. Modern Muslims who have given up Sharia, glad to have them as citizens. Perfectly happy to have them next door.”
Great, Newt. Now put your money where your mouth is and move to Dearborn, Michigan.
I think the San Bernardino Mr.-and-Mrs. Jihadists would have passed your test, and appeared as people you would think to be acceptable neighbors. They had well-paying jobs; mixed with their infidel co-workers, and blended right in. Until they opened fire.
Meanwhile, Mike Pence tweets his thoughts about the attack in Nice, France.
He doesn’t name any names; he mentions ‘all those responsible.’ This is a carefully-crafted, purposely vague statement.
And his past statements were rather different. For example:
God save us from politicians.
