Newt Gingrich - Traitor
The First Amendment guarantees each individual, no matter how outrageous their ideas, freedom to speak their thoughts.
As a former congressman, Gingrich, at some point in his farcical political life, would have sworn an oath to support and defend the above mentioned First Amendment.
Though Gingrich is no longer electorally enthroned in the halls of congress, the words which follow, spoken by Gingrich at the Nackey S. Loeb First Amendment award dinner, are treasonously affronting, and, illustrate just how low the once mighty will stoop in their quest to reclaim notoriety.
Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich yesterday said the country will be forced to reexamine freedom of speech to meet the threat of terrorism.
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.
Gingrich is free to speak his thoughts regarding restricting freedom of speech, but he should not be free from scorn and ridicule for expressing such an affronting, and constitutionally traitorous thought.
