While liberals are still trying to muster outrage at Donald Trump and his proposal to temporarily pause Islamic immigration, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has gone even further, telling Sean Hannity on Thursday that the U.S. should begin deporting extremist Muslims.
“Let me be as blunt and direct as I can be,” Gingrich said. “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.”
Gingrich, who was once considered Trump’s likeliest running mate, made the comments after a terrorist killed at least 80 people at a Bastille Day celebration in Nice, France. He said the U.S. should begin penalizing anyone found logging on to radical Islamic websites.
“We need to be fairly relentless about defining who our enemies are,” he said. “Anybody who goes on a website favoring ISIS or Al Qaeda or other terrorist groups – that should be a felony and they should go to jail. Any organization which hosts such a website should be engaged in a felony. It should be closed down immediately.”
Well, it’s not exactly clear how these proposals would get past the First Amendment, but at least Gingrich has the right spirit. We can debate all day long about which measures we can take to stop the spread of Islamic radicalism and save innocent lives – but we can only have that debate when we have leaders who recognize the root of the problem. Gingrich and Trump may not have all the solutions, but they know who the enemy is. In these troubling times, that’s a significant step in the right direction.
For the next few days, Democrats and other liberals will rake Gingrich over the coals for his specific comments and miss the meat of his message entirely. The point is that we have to start trying new things. We have to stop playing nice. We have to stop pretending that guns are the problem. We have to stop protecting Islam.
People are dying and families are grieving. When we decide to care as much about these victims as we do about Islam’s reputation, maybe we’ll start getting somewhere.
Any true American with any common sense whatsoever would not have to even ponder over the necessity of removing people from this nation who want to kill and torture us. Sharia does not submit to the United States Constitution, or for that matter, anything else. This is why Barack Hussein Obama does not like our Constitution and calls it a fluid document. He obviously desires to override it. Radical, sharia driven Muslims have no desire to assimilate with the people of other nations. German Chancellor Angela Merke admitted that attempts to allow the massive immigration of Muslims into Germany under the guise of becoming a pluralistic culture, have failed. (multiculturalism) The list of the barbaric atrocities from radical Islam grows daily, while liberals condone it and look the other way. If 9/11 and the other innumerable butcherings that these savages and literal followers of the Koran have committed throughout Europe and the United States have not taught us, then nothing will. There is little if any fortitude and resolve in our feckless and apathetic populace today, hence when one man says what is right, people cringe. Evidently they would rather wait for the barbarians to overrun our nation from shore to shore. America today has absolutely nothing of the resolve of Colonial America and our founding fathers, with only a handful of exceptions. I pray daily for Godly and intrepid leadership. If the Lord will protect this nation from the wickedness of sharia and Radical Islam, I see no other political tool at His current disposal but Donald Trump. Whether you like him or not, he is indeed fearless and tells it like it is. He does not equivocate or vacillate like all of the turncoat Rhino Republicans. He can also be rightly judged because of the liberals who hate him with passion. The West is at war with radical Islam and our liberal government and citizenry are either confused by the facts, and/or followers of sharia themselves.
