Former House Speaker and Republican hate merchant Newt Gingrich had the gall to attack President Joe Biden on Saturday by accusing him of being “anti-American” during an appearance on Fox News.
Biden has already accomplished quite a bit within his first 100 days, the most significant being the passage of the American Rescue Plan, 200 million Americans being vaccinated against the coronavirus, and the rollback of several terrible executive orders issued by disgraced former President Donald Trump.
And he’s just getting started.
But Gingrich, who began the hateful and divisive rhetoric against Democrats when he served in Congress that set the stage for the outrageous attacks Republicans use today, whined about Biden’s policies by calling him “anti-American” because conservatives are not getting their way.
“Every idiotic thing that the Biden administration has done in the first 100 days, you begin to realize — whether it’s threatening everybody who believes in the Second Amendment or it’s attacking everybody who believes in right to life or it is attacking people of traditional values who are appalled that this administration would fly the gay flag at American embassies all over the world — I mean, you just go down item by item and it’s almost like they have a checklist of ‘What can we do that will really, truly, infuriate traditional Americans?'” Gingrich said.
“And I’ve never seen anything like it,” he continued. “Somebody asked me the afternoon, I told them, ‘I couldn’t imagine any administration which had been this deliberately anti-American and it’s deliberately committed to infuriating the majority of the American people.'”

Gingrich is a hypocrite who cheated on his first two wives, so he is the last person who should be speaking about “traditional marriage,” especially since he supports Trump, who has also cheated on all of his wives on multiple occasions.
It should also be pointed out that the majority in this country voted for Biden, who enjoys a higher approval rating than Trump ever received. Conservatives are NOT the majority in this country as they constantly pretend to be. Biden’s policies are also popular.
And let’s not forget that Trump incited an insurrection to overthrow democracy, which many Republicans supported, including Gingrich, who has repeatedly pushed Trump’s lies about the election. Gingrich and Republicans are the ones who are anti-American because they are clearly and demonstrably anti-democracy.
In addition, it was Trump who frequently said and did things to infuriate Americans. It is the Republicans who frequently say and do things to “own the libs,” so Gingrich is engaging in projection as well.
Gingrich is the reason why divisiveness, partisan prejudice, and political polarization have been on the rise in our nation. He’s the one who began the Republican crusade to undermine democratic norms in the 1990s that led to the insurrection at the Capitol on January 6th. Biden did not do that, Gingrich did. No amount of slanderous rhetoric from Gingrich can change that fact.
