Gingrich Aligns Himself with Hate Group: "I'd stop gay rights." (Video)

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich spea...Image via WikipediaFormer House Speaker and darling of the teabaggers, Newt Gingrich, who hasn't held a public office since 1999, is considering a run for the White House on the Republican ticket. The uber-conservatard has been making the rounds on the talk radio circuit, including a stop this weekend at the AFRTalk show, hosted by Bryan Fischer, head of the antigay American Family Association. AFA was added to a list of hate groups this year by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Gingrich has been married three times after cheating on each of his previous wives and leaving them both while they were seriously ill, telling one of his wives as she lay in a hospital bed fighting cancer that he was leaving her for a younger woman. The guy is all heart.

Newt, when asked how he could be unfaithful and give a speech on family values: "It doesn't matter what I do," he answered. "People need to hear what I have to say. There's no one else who can say what I can say. It doesn't matter what I live."

The self righteous hypocrite said recently that he blames his inability to honor his marital vows on the stress of his career. This weekend the bloated has-been outlined his vision of America as a Christianist Theocracy that includes turning back the clock on gay rights.

The Advocate reports:
"I think my emphasis would be pro-classical Christianity," Gingrich said in a video interview with Bryan Fischer of the antigay American Family Association after addressing the Rediscover God in America conference, held over the weekend in Iowa. He cited the end of adoption services in Massachusetts and Washington, D.C., by Catholic-based organizations because their policies limiting the rights of gay and lesbian adoptive parents violated laws put in place after the legalization of marriage equality in both areas.

Gingrich brought up President Barack Obama's decision to stop defending the section of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act, which prevents the federal government from recognizing foreign or state-sanctioned marriages and or other unions of same-sex couples.

"If there is a rule of law, it means that if the Congress passes a bill and the president signs it, the president has the obligation to support and sustain the laws of the United States," Gingrich added.
Listen to how these two distort the facts. The overwhelming majority of Americans supported DADT repeal and a majority now support marriage equality, which puts these two idiots well outside the mainstream. They continue to stick the the outdated republican mantra, "If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes accepted as truth."

Maybe these two Bible thumpers need a refresher course. Exodus 20:16, The 9th Commandment: "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor."
