"We all of us know down here that politics is a tough game. And I don't think there's any point in being Irish if you don't know that the world is going to break your heart eventually."-Daniel Patrick Moynihan, December 5, 1963
Unfortunately he is right to an extent, but the extent that he took it to with the Islam was a bit to radical. The athiest movement has grown substantially in the past few years, but to address it at one certain group is a bit extreme, but I still enjoy Newt.
"It is a sad day in society when people adjust the facts to fit their beliefs, rather than adjust their beliefs to fit the facts."
"This Administration will constantly strive to promote an ownership society in America. We want more people owning their own home. It is in our national interest that more people own their own home. After all, if you own your own home, you have a vital stake in the future of our country."" GWB
Aren't atheism and radical Islam mutually exclusive?
I live in Keith Ellison's district, and one of our local Conservative radio hosts declared that Ellison was "using the gay agenda to promote Sharia Law." Huh? I'm not an expert, but I'm pretty sure sharia law isn't exactly friendly to homosexuals.
Newt's just trying to burnish his "Tea Party cred" by throwing as many boogiemen into one sentence as he can. I'm waiting for Bachmann to one up him with "Those atheist radical Islamists are going to come to America and force you to enroll in Obama-care. Then after you go before your death panel, they're going to take that Death Tax back to China."
With large scale immigration I can understand beating the war-drums against Islamism in Europe. I think that it's insipid fear mongering that has more to do with the 19th century Anti-Masonic hysteria than 1930's warnings about Nazi Germany, but at least we are seeing a lot of Muslim immigration into Europe. One in every 25 Britons is a Muslim; in America it's 1 in 200.
