Newt Gingrich’s Statement on Ground Zero Mosque

Newt Gingrich, former speaker of the U.S. House, just issued a statement on the proposed “Cordoba House” Mosque at Ground Zero. You can probably guess how tolerant and pro liberty it was.

There should be no mosque near Ground Zero in New York so long as there are no churches or synagogues in Saudi Arabia.

Really, Newt? I suppose we should have no freedom of speech until Saudi Arabia has it too. What a great argument. Actually, Newt, I’ll take you up on your logic — how about we have no Capitol, White House, or Pentagon so long as there are none in Saudi Arabia?

America is experiencing an Islamist cultural-political offensive designed to undermine and destroy our civilization. Sadly, too many of our elites are the willing apologists for those who would destroy them if they could.

I love how Newt talks like he isn’t one of these “elites.”  The truth of the matter is that it is the government’s spending, borrowing, inflating, and countless other interventions that are undermining and destroying our civilization — and Gingrich is a willing apologist for it all!

What it comes down to is this:  The Mosque owner and everyone else has the right to do whatever they want with their property as long as they do not aggress against the person or property of another.
