Gingrich - Radical Gay Agenda is the "New Fascism"

This is a follow up to Friday's post* n the mob-induced firing of Mozilla co-founder Brendan Eich.


Newt Gingrich makes a good point here, but I have yet to see a current or former national leader tackle the reality of the situation. He rightly notes that the attacks that target one's ability to earn a living simply due to his or her beliefs warrants the label of Fascism, but even he avoids is even more telling. No mention is made of the combined effort of the mob and a government that has taken upon itself the authority to be the grantor of privileges now referred to as rights. He also may have considered noting that our reveling in attacking anything based in truth amounts to a new and dystopian form of chivalry.

-From previous posts:

"...........The foot in the door of asserting a new and dangerously creative power of government sets us up for trouble. Governments are given the authority to regulate marriage to avoid abuses and to confine it to types that are germane to its inherent culture.That's why we don't allow underage brides, multiple brides, or still-married people to marry before obtaining a divorce. Marriage is an institution that falls within the Natural Law. An artificial construct that is the State cannot have, nor can it be allotted, the authority to create. The authority to create is the authority to severely restrict or to take away........"

".......Meanwhile, people.......have joined on the bandwagon of the New Chivalry - attacking anyone who dares to refrain from participating in the destruction of a society. In the late Medieval era, the weak were supposed (Although it seldom worked) to be protected by the strong. Today, the weak are those who refuse to bow to the pressure of the radicals, and they have no protection whatsoever.

"Newt Gingrich ripped into what he called the growing “new fascism” that’s now forcing people out of jobs over their conservative beliefs — noting former Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich, who stepped down last week after public outcry over his $1,000 donation in support of California’s Prop 8, which would have banned same-sex marriage.

“If you’re a young faculty member, in a lot of places, if you’re a young member of a news department, and you have the wrong views, meaning conservative, you have no career,” Gingrich said on “This Week With George Stephanopoulos” Sunday morning.

“This is just the most open, blatant example of the new fascism, which says if you don’t agree with us 100%, we have the right to punish you, unless you’re like Hillary [Clinton] and Barack Obama, and you recant.”...........

[Here the questioner affects to be unable to see the difference between creating new types of marriage by legislative play-acting or court order. Willful misinterpretations of scripture (note that I am not taking a religious position here in any way but one of Liberty) that were used to prevent people of different ethnic groups from marrying are a world apart from creating new forms of marriage out of thin air. The act of pretending to believe that marriage is only a manifestation of romantic love (and one that supposedly warrants the government to overstep its authority to protect Life, Liberty, and Property), is the issue here]

“Where would you draw the line?” ABC’s Jonathan Karl asked Gingrich. “What if he came out against interracial marriage?”

“I think the question is do you want to live in an open and tolerant society, or do you want impose your views at the cost of people’s jobs?” Gingrich replied."
