Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich is one of the few GOP leaders of days past who has remained quite conservative. Whereas the Bushes, Cheneys, Romney, and many of the other former big names in the GOP have gone soft, Gingrich rallied behind Trump and has been a staunch conservative, still fighting for the values he was once elected to defend and advance.
And now he’s in the news fighting for free speech and against Brandon’s new Ministry of Truth, something so reprehensible and shocking that it’s surprising that even the modern left was willing to go along with the idea.
But go along with it the modern left did, so now some wackjob that sings erotic Harry Potter songs is in charge of determining what “the truth” is, which is hardly ideal.
Gingrich, in any case, ripped into the new “Disinformation Governance Board,” an organization almost more Orwellian sounding than “Ministry of Truth”, when he appeared on Fox and Friends over the weekend.
Speaking about what he saw as the unconstitutionality of the board, Gingrich first said:
“[F]irst of all, this is a good example of big government socialism at work,” Gingrich declared. “This is a censorship board. Now, the First Amendment of the Constitution says you can’t make any law that affects free speech.”
It was then that Gingrich took the step of proposing dramatic action to deal with the situation: according to Gingrich, it’s high time Republicans stop talking and start acting, using their power to defund the board and impeach Mayorkas, the Homeland Security secretary under whose “leadership” the board was created. Speaking on that point, Gingrich said:
“So, Mayorkas — who I think should be impeached immediately, and the board should be defunded immediately — Mayorkas is essentially explaining that they are going to break the Constitution, exercise censorship, and that’s what it is — censorship, and we are supposed to trust their appointees who are all left-wingers to be fair and neutral.
Continuing, he then expressed what many Americans who have reacted in horror to Biden’s Ministry of Truth plans are thinking, saying:
This is nonsense. I mean, these people are crazy. And I think we need to understand what they’re trying to do is a total violation of the American Constitution.”
Finally, Gingrich concluded by noting that, regardless of the whole Orwellian surveillance state thing, Mayorkas isn’t even doing his main job, which is to defend the border from invaders:
“So, his real job to protect the American people is not being done, while his new job to censor you and me is being done.”
Fortunately, while Gingrich is more conservative than most in the GOP, he’s not the only one calling for dramatic action against Mayorkas in the wake of the Ministry of Truth announcement.
We’ll see if the typically spineless GOP manages to hold it together long enough to stand up to this Biden policy, one well beyond the pale for America.
