Newt Gingrich is constantly saying the most fascistic things. He's trying to move the U.S. further and further into right-wing totalitarianism and a police state. God hates it. All such entities fall and fall hard.
Just how much freedom does one wish gone just to live this fleshly life? That's not the issue though, because Gingrich and his friends are up to no good. They are lying about their motives. They are really all about stealing other people's resources and forcing them to work for the Empire so Gingrich and the others can live high off the hog until they die in the flesh. They're already dead of the Spirit.
On Face the Nation this morning, former House speaker Newt Gingrich echoed the extreme rhetoric of the right wing to decry the Supreme Court's recent decision restoring the right of habeas corpus petitions to Guantanamo detainees, charging the decision would "cost us a city":
This court decision is a disaster, which could cost us a city. And the debate ought to be about whether you're prepared to lose an American city on behalf of five lawyers — it was a five to four decision. ... That ought to be a principled argument between McCain and Obama, about whether or not you're prepared to allow any random, nutcake district judge who has no knowledge of national security to set the rules for terrorists.
Gingrich is taking his cues from Justice Antonin Scalia, who in his dissent declared that the majority's decision "will almost certainly cause more Americans to be killed."
