There's plenty of plantation work to be had, what with us driving out all the illegals. Maybe we should force poor black people to do that work. I bet the GOP audience would go wild for that idea.

What a bunch of racist cock suckers.

did not. He refused to be called a racist for suggesting maybe people would like jobs.

. . . . when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old GOP spiritual, "Fark you I got mine! Fark you I got mine! Thank God Almighty, Fark you I got mine!"

If Newt gets the nomination - he won't, but a Democrat can dream - he'll have to thank Williams at the GOP convention in Tampa, even before he thanks Callista.

Sounds gay.

When one's first name is "Newt" one forfeits the right to mock the name of anyone, and most likely forfeits one's elementary school lunch money on a daily basis.

Did Perry really call Turkey's President Erdogan a terrorist?
 
2012-01-17 11:21:32 AM  
"No," Gingrich said petulantly, with a slight pause. "I don't see that." The crowd screamed with glee. Gingrich went on to bash unionized janitors in public schools, and I realized that his student-janitor comments represent a right-wing political trifecta, bashing anti-business regulations like child labor laws, public sector unions and lazy "urban" kids. Oh, and he also got to attack elites this time around, insisting his janitor plans drew liberal disapproval because "only the elites despise earning money."

That's when this article went full retard.

Dr. King's dream entailed many things, the most remembered being that and I quote, "little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers"

He didn't say anything about there not being anymore assholes.

I just enjoyed the fact that here were 5 GOP candidates debating gun laws on MLK Day. The guy who was killed by a gun-toting assassin.

/Wish I could be assassinated instead of killed.
 
2012-01-17 11:24:17 AM  
I can't wait until this is all over and Newt crawls back under his rock.

He did promise an end to ice giants, though.

Oh how I yearn for the day when we can all sit together at the table of brotherhood, and then the poor and colored people can get up and clear the table, because those dishes won't do themselves.
 
2012-01-17 11:26:32 AM  
His name is Newt?

WTF is that?
 
2012-01-17 11:27:09 AM  
A Newt will eat all the fish in your aquarium, and never show so much as a trace of remorse.
 
2012-01-17 11:27:38 AM  
"Second, you're the one who earlier raised a key point," he continued. "The area that ought to be I-73 was called by Barack Obama a corridor of shame because of unemployment.

Uhhh, no Newt. 'Corridor of Shame' is a name that has nothing to do with unemployment. It's named that because the schools in that area are uniformly shiatty. And I'm not talking you just had a nice good dump while reading the paper on a Sunday morning shiatty. I'm talking some giant wet cow patty crawling with gagging maggots / not having enough books or even chairs to go around shiatty.
 
2012-01-17 11:27:41 AM  
oh please "asking tough questions on race" is code for "gimme gimme gimme". Gingrich is right to denounce that sort of entitled rent seeking.

And by "full retard", I assume you mean totally accurate, right?

"First of all, Juan" - and there was a slight cheer when the former speaker called the Pulitzer Prize winner "Juan" - "the fact is that more people have been put on food stamps by Barack Obama than any president in American history. I know among the politically correct you're not supposed to use facts that are uncomfortable.

Damn that Obama, going around the country, forcing people to use food stamps instead of the money they don't have from they job they don't have.

The main plank of republican ideology is racism. All of their actions and rhetoric can be explained through that lens.
 
2012-01-17 11:36:27 AM  
Well, in Newt's defense he is a complete asshole. It's not like this should be surprising at this point.
 
2012-01-17 11:36:54 AM  
Man, I love Gingrich. As long as he's around I never have to worry about voters forgetting what a self-entitled bunch of whining morons the GOP are. Thanks, Newt!
 
2012-01-17 11:37:21 AM  
Call me crazy, but...

Wouldn't picking Newt as your VP be a nearly unbeatable form of protection? You could do almost anything, with the threat of President Gingrich should you be forced from office.

The article was a bit off the rails. Santorum spoke about how African-Americans were disproportionately imprisoned, and Newt's contempt whilst addressing Williams is the default way a republican speaks to any one that is left of the center.
 
2012-01-17 11:37:57 AM  
Wait, aren't the 1% our elite? Don't they like money?
 
2012-01-17 11:39:42 AM  

Chindit: did not. He refused to be called a racist for suggesting maybe people would like jobs.


He initially suggested that black people particularly don't want jobs badly enough.
 
2012-01-17 11:40:03 AM  
I have a feeling Juan Williams is beginning to regret taking that job at Fox.
 
2012-01-17 11:40:16 AM  
So let me get this right. Newt and the rest of the GOP can say in one single response that the reason people are poor is because they are lazy and lack work ethic yet it was Obama who put them on food stamps.

ugh Even your own talking points disagree with you
 
2012-01-17 11:40:38 AM  
America, you owe Newt Gingrich the presidency!

Not only is he better than you, he's smarter than you!
 
2012-01-17 11:40:50 AM  
SO how many of Newt's kids didn't go to college so they could be taught to be janitors?

We had "the great recession" a bunch of people lost tons of money and their jobs and ended up on foodstamps and Obama is mocked because that safety net is available? Republicans are so out of touch and spiteful it is embarrassing that they are American.

You know as well as everyone else on Fark that quoting Gingrich is automatically lying about him.
 
2012-01-17 11:43:58 AM  
Gingrich's book marketing people put his up to it.

1. Make enemies (create markets)
2. Hint you're vulnerable in the pages of your book so your enemies will read the book.
3. Proft from the sales
4. Change enemies after saturating the market

The GOP is completely f*cked on this issue. It amazes me that the people in charge of crafting the party's message are OK with the self-contradictory bullsh*t that they came up with. But I guess they have no other choice. They need to blame Obama, and they need to insist that there is no other reason for being poor other than personal failing.

And if "food stamp president" isn't a racist dog whistle, I don't know what is. It's a good thing racism ended when we elected a black president.
 
2012-01-17 11:46:40 AM  
Newt is still going on about that getting-rid-of-full-time-janitors-and-hiring-high-school-kids-part-tim e thing, is he? Oh, and it seems to be gaining traction from the GOPpers?

This makes me want to vomit.

But if I vomit, who will clean it up? Will the kids be properly trained in throwing down the sawdust in the proper configuration to permit maximum absorbancy?

Is there a reason why the first three events of the campaign season occur in the whitest of white bread states--Iowa and New Hampshire--and then move on to perhaps the last bastion of completely unembarrassed racism in the country? If the goal is to shake out political moderates and leave only the extremists behind, this strategy works perfectly. Then there are the late primaries in which the winner has long been selected and the electorate is only going through the motions of contributing to the political process. I believe the parties could force these early states to participate in a Super Tuesday-esque mass primary day simply by threatening to ignore results from early primaries. Or perhaps early, middle and late primaries could be assigned on a quadrennial lottery basis.
 
2012-01-17 11:48:22 AM  
What scares me is that people take Grinchrich seriously.
