With the announcement of Trump’s VP pick just around the corner, Newt Gingrich just explicitly called for America to deport Muslims in a desperate attempt to please the presumptive Republican nominee.
Speaking with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, Gingrich argued that any Muslim who believes in sharia — which is defined simply as any Islamic law — should be rounded up and deported from the United States.
Western civilization is in a war. We should frankly test every person here who is of a Muslim background, and if they believe in Sharia, they should be deported. Sharia is incompatible with Western civilization. Modern Muslims who have given up Sharia, glad to have them as citizens. Perfectly happy to have them next door. But we need to be fairly relentless about defining who our enemies are.
After ranting about how we can defeat ISIS on the internet, Gingrich then went into full “kill ’em all” mode, shamelessly hoping to catch the eye of The Donald and earn himself a shot at being the bigoted billionaire’s running mate.
And frankly if we can’t destroy them through the internet, we should destroy them with kinetic power, using various weapons starting with Predators, and frankly just killing them. I am sick and tired of being told that the wealthiest, most powerful civilization in history, all of Western civilization, is helpless in the face of a group of medieval barbarians…
Just for good measure, Gingrich had to throw in that this is all Obama’s fault. Naturally. Isn’t it always?
And we’re told to be reasonable, to be passive, to not judge. Well I just want to tell you tonight, everybody who watches this video, this is the fault of Western elites who lack the guts to do what is right, to do what is necessary, and to tell us the truth, and that starts with Barack Obama.
