Newt gives his thoughts on President Biden’s inauguration and what’s to come for America.
January 21, 2021
Well, look I think you are seeing the hysteria of the Biden system. Because it’s not really about Biden himself. It’s his entire team around him who are radicals who believe if they could exterminate the Republicans that would be one way to get the unity. As a New York Times columnist wrote this morning, if Biden really wanted unity, he would start by lynching Vice President Pence. That gives you a sense of the ferocity and the anger and the hatred that underlies the modern left. And I think that Cruz showed tremendous courage. He always has. Whether you like him or dislike him, he is a very smart, very courageous guy who stood for what he believed in. And I was delighted the other day to see Mitt Romney actually come to the defense of both Cruz and Hawley and say look, they are perfectly allowed to have their own views and there should be no act of retribution against them in the senate much like Feinstein. And I think as people think about it there is going to be a real reaction to the idea that you should start having a lynch mob going around on the senate floor picking out the people it wants to destroy.
I mean, look, you should be worried about the country. You know, when President Biden in his inaugural starts talking about extremism manages to not mention Antifa, I actually thought this morning that Seattle and Portland and Denver may have been Antifa’s response to having their feelings hurt because they think they have earned the right to be considered terrorists extremist group and the fact that left refused. If you notice now that trump is gone, we suddenly didn’t get peace. We had Antifa out there saying they despise Joe Biden, they hate Joe Biden, they don’t regard him as legitimate. I think that people should be worried about America. We are under greater stress right now the end any time since the precivil war period and the distress is very real. And you saw it. You know, I just did a newsletter at Gingrich360 drawing the extension between the Biden inaugural and the Biden inauguration day because during the inauguration day, he methodically went out and he began hunting down and destroying the trump legacy but during the inaugural he was this nice, pleasant unity bring us all together, which literally within two hours he destroyed by his own activities. I think that anybody who cares about America should be worried. This is not an irrational thing.
Yeah, I mean, I think you have to think in terms of the Biden machine, not Biden personally. Biden didn’t personally sit down and draft 17 executive orders but radicals on his staff did and, in some ways, I thought the most telling was their decision, think about this, on the very day he was sworn in as president, he signed an executive order to destroy the 1776 commissioner. And all of our viewers tonight ought to ask themselves, what is there about this 1776 commissioner that made it such a big deal that Biden went out of his way to destroy it on his first day in office? The answer is it is a pro-American pro-history, pro-factual commission which threatens the very essence of the modern left and all of their 1619 project and all of their lies about the makeup of America. So, what you have is a president smiled pleasant. I thought it was a great speech. I thought it had all the right tone. But I also knew that if Eisenhower had given that speech, he would have meant it. When Biden gave that speech there was just a pleasant cover below which methodically trying to destroy conservatism.
Let me just offer a piece of practical advice from somebody who has spent a lot of time on elections. 74 million people voted for Donald J. Trump, more than for George W. Bush. More than for Ronald Reagan. 74 million people. Now if you want to destroy the Republican party, throw away our chances in ’23-’24, just go along with this totally phony totally dishonest. I urge every Republican of every background, for the sake of your party, do not allow this to come up and put maximum pressure on the democratic senators in swing states to not allow this to come up. It’s a charade and it’s very dangerous historically.
