Newt Drops a Bombshell…Obama FURIOUS, Americans CHEERING!
By Kathy Shaidle|July 19, 2016

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is out of the running for Donald Trump’s presidential spot, but maybe that’s a good thing. Lately he’s been more outspoken than he has been in a long time.  Trump must be happy about that.

He just shocked many by calling for Muslims in America to be deported if they supported Islamic sharia law. Now he’s boldly addressing the racial divide that seems to be growing wider by the day.

Jeff Poor reports from Breitbart.com about Gingrich’s Monday appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program, when he said:

“At the risk of once again being divisive, I think as long as we have Barack Obama doing what he did over the last few years – you had seven-and-a-half years of a black president, seven-and-a-half years of a black attorney general. Gallup reports today race relations today than any time in the last 17 years. Why? Because how often has he hit the police? He hit the police in Cambridge and he was wrong. He hit the police in Ferguson. He was wrong. He hit the police in Florida. He was wrong. At what point does the president have some obligation to say – there are two parts to this – one, we’ve got to understand the experience of being black in America and in places like Chicago where 3,200 people have been killed in the Obama presidency.”

Note that Gingrich isn’t simply expressing his own opinions. He’s citing a Gallup poll, which reflects the views of other Americans. Then he relates a harrowing crime statistic.

Despite this, by making statements of fact and simply expressing what millions of Americans are thinking, he is doomed to be condemned as “racist” yet again. But isn’t that kind of factually challenged, politically correct name calling the real source of division in the country?
