Newt Gingrich is Equally Afraid of 'The Left' and TerroristsS

In plugging his new book, the former GOP Speaker of the House writes that leftists have infiltrated nearly all facets of society with their brand of "secular-socialism," and they will destroy America faster than you can say firecracker jihadist.

The politician-turned-author-turned-expert on everything, who has also written several odd historical novels about the American Civil War, has a new book coming out, called, To Save America: Stopping Obama's Secular Socialist Machine. Gingrich begins his screed, published in Human Events, by saying, "In the 20th Century, America fought and defeated Nazism, Fascism, Imperialism and Communism — four existential threats to our survival." Okay. But what about existential threats in the 21st Century? Gingrich says there are two: non-state terrorist groups, and liberals! You see, these left-wingers in power today have a death grip on "academia, the elite news media, Hollywood, union leaders, trial lawyers, the courts, the Congress, and the bureaucracy at all levels of government." And if we don't do something about it, America will soon resemble Greece or Portugal, becoming a "European-style, high-tax, big-bureaucracy, low-economic-growth state." And we all know how much bourgeois Obama, "the most radical President in American history," loves the socialist vibe across the Atlantic. Consider yourself warned (again).
