Gingrich, speaking at a Manchester awards banquet, said a “different set of rules” may be needed to reduce terrorists’ ability to use the Internet and free speech to recruit and get out their message.
That’s right folks the same asshole that got the boot/”resigned” from his seat as Speaker Of The House, by his own Republican Brethren, is speaking to the Brits about how the First Amendment needs to be “re-examined”.
Here’s a little background on this piece of monkey shit before I continue, thanks to Newts Wiki:
Gingrich was accused of hypocrisy and unethical behavior when he accepted a $4.5 million advance as part of a book deal, in light of his previous role in the investigation of Jim Wright. Following the accusations, Gingrich returned the advance.
Including charges related to the book deal, Democrats filed 84 ethics charges against Speaker Gingrich during his term, including claiming tax-exempt status for a college course run for political purposes and using the GOPAC political action committee as a slush fund. All charges were eventually dropped following an investigation by the Republican-led House Ethics Committee. However, Gingrich admitted to unintentionally giving inaccurate information to the House Ethics Committee during the course of the investigation. The committee did not indict him on charges of intentional perjury. The matter was settled when he agreed to reimburse the Committee $300,000 for the cost of prolonging the investigation. The payment was described as a “cost assessment” and not a fine by the Committee. He also agreed to not “spin” the story in the media, but admit publicly to his transgressions.
On January 10, 1997, the New York Times printed a story that revealed Gingrich, in collusion with other House Republicans, planned to abrogate his agreement by misrepresenting the ethics violations he committed. The story was supported by quotes from a taped phone conversation between Gingrich and his fellow Republicans. A firestorm of controversy ensued, with Republicans insisting that the privacy of the participants in the conversation has been breached, and others insisting that the public has a need to know about Gingrich’s intent to violate his agreement with the Ethics Committee. The couple who taped the conversation, John and Alice Martin, who claimed that they “lucked” into it over their police scanner while driving in their car and who “just happened” to have a recorder available, pled guilty to charges surrounding the taping and paid a $500 fine. Five years later, Democratic representative Jim McDermott publicly admitted that he leaked the tape. Republican John Boehner, one of the participants in the conversation, sued McDermott for $10,000 in civil damages; as of May 2006, that court case is in the US Court of Appeals in Washington, possibly heading for the Supreme Court. Many media organizations and watchdog groups support McDermott for political reasons; claiming that if Boehner prevails, the ability of news organizations to reveal embarrassing and potentially criminal behavior of government officials will be drastically curtailed..
That’s right the same guy who presided over the hearings to try and get Clinton impeached, for perjury, committed perjury AND is not only unethical but boarders on the criminal.
Speaking at a function that celebrates the First Amendment, he says America needs to cut back a little on the freedoms that our most sacred of Amendments offers.
“We need to get ahead of the curve before we actually lose a city, which I think could happen in the next decade,” […]
If that isn’t the politics of fear then I don’t know what is. This fucker is actually trying to scare a group of people who revear the First Amendment into maybe letting some of those freedoms slide before we are all killed by “crazy jihadists on the intarweb”. There are so many things wrong with this statement I don’t even know where to start. If the FBI can’t stop me from telling people how to hack the shit out of everything, then how are they going to stop a covert, intelligent, Arabic Speaking group of terrorists from sending an email.
The really great thing about this, is that Newt “The Hypocrites’s Hypocrite” Gingrich, thinks he’s a GOP candidate for 2008!!! Did he forget about how his own party pressured him out of office? Did he miss the midterm elections where the Democrats took the Congress AND the Senate?!?! America is fed up with this kind of political power whore. And if Newt doesn’t like America the way it is, he can damn well move somewhere else.
Let me say on behalf of all intelligent Americans out there:
FUCK YOU NEWT
You Fucking Fuck
That’s me exercising my freedom of speech Newt, and you can never stop me you old fuck.
