Every time I am reminded that that walking, talking pustule is still alive, my soul gets another paper cut.


The assertion is so patently absurd how could it not be a projection of his rancid worldview? Seriously, where does he come up with this shit?


Meanwhile in MAGA-land, Republicans at all levels of government are working hard to reduce the chances children in America will survive all the way through high school without being shot by a 2nd Amendment absolutist.


This for anyone who thinks that compromising with Republicans makes any meaningful change in their message. They literally got Roe V. Wade overturned, and it has only emboldened them to continue with the extreme propaganda that got them there. Specifically want to make sure to note that Democrats somehow reopening coal mines in West Virginia would not have stopped Newt Gingrich from saying this, or his rabid listeners from swallowing it.


That’s absolute slander!

With the current uncertainties around carbon offsets there’s absolutely no way to arrange a climate-neutral burnt offering to Moloch; so don’t think that the sinister leftist conspiracy is going to let you get away with it.


Does anyone know any actual policy, regulation or proposal that Gingrich & Co. is warping and twisting beyond recognition here? I’ve heard these ridiculous claims a few times recently and I can’t believe people actually believe them. I mean, how would legally killing a 4 week old baby actually work? Do I have to do it myself? Do I hire a service? Do I just call 911 and a cop will swing by and shoot it, and maybe shoot my dog for good measure?


Gingrich is a liar. Of course, he’s a ReThugliKKKlanner, and that’s their number one skill: LYING.

#NeverVoteRepublican #TaxTheRich #TaxTheChurch - all same source of oppression


As an avowed non-reproductive tranny panny, I’m just mad that he’s telling the world of our secret plans.


This is one that truly baffles me. For many conspiracy theories, I can see how people get sucked in to them and start buying in to them. They’re just so abstract that it can be easy to miss the details. But who the fuck is out there that seriously thinks there’s a large fraction of the population that literally wants to murder children? I can’t fathom how someone could actually be stupid enough to believe this shit.


Invoke the “stand your ground” law. “I feared for the next twenty years of my life!”.


wait until MoRon DeSantis gets ahold of this and ups the stakes with another story lie about a person he knows (not Penny, he’ll call her Mary) who survived an abortion attempt at 30 days post partum and lived to tell us all the Sinister Left™ wants to kill all babies after birth! abortion after live birth - gasp - the horror, the horror!
obvious bullshit is obvious, but dangerous if left in the wild, unchecked.


I love books, but when I saw Newt had (ghost written by all accounts) some books in the science fiction section, they mysteriously moved themselves to the “remaindered” bin the store, where the covers are torn off and returned so the store can get their money back, and the actual books pulped or otherwise destroyed. No idea how that happened, must have been ghosts.


On the other hand I find myself terrified this many people are wallowing in what amounts to lurid violent sadistic pornographic fantasies about rape, pregnancy, femicide, and child death.

No one seems to be calling these “concerned” authors of horror out for what looks to me basically like a damned sick fandom.


It’s utter and completely made up bullshit. If I were to venture a guess, it’s from a similar strand of bullshit that fuels the myth that hospitals allow women to kill their baby immediately after birth: that, in contrast, hospitals allow women to hold a baby who has a fatal birth defect before it passes. What they see is a baby that was born alive and then it’s dead. They don’t care whether it was born with malformed lungs or heart. I’d guess this relates to the same kind of thing but with premes. Not all premes survive and parents are allowed to hold their child before the hospital removes life support. That could be “30 days after birth.”

That’s one of things that enrages me about these sick fucks. They have no hesitation to use dead babies and the pain and tragedy of the parents for sick PR stunts.


It must be time to re-visit the lyrics to Austin Lounge Lizards Gingrich the Newt:

We’d like to set the record straight by singing of the newt
For newts are open-minded; they are flexible and cute
A newt can breathe in water and a newt can breathe on land
And if you are a different critter newts will understand
Newts are not mean-spirited; they never are unfair
Newts are not underhanded and are not afraid to share
Newts do not have bad haircuts because newts are lacking hair
But the newt called Gingrich drives all true newts to despair
Gingrich the Newt’s a disgrace to the name
When true newts see him they feel so ashamed
He’s the black sheep of the newt family
The one rotten fruit on the newt family tree
Newts don’t prey on other newts; in that they don’t believe
And you will never catch a newt with something up his sleeve
They’re tolerant to different environments and so
They don’t send little newties to the orphanage to grow
What kind of newt wears a suit and a tie
And frightens small children as he rushes by?
But we admit that his suit suits him good
Much more discreet than a sheet and a hood
A newt may be cold-blooded but he won’t go to extremes
And you can trust a newt to be exactly what he seems
Newts are sorry if you’re sad; they’re happy if you’re gay
But Gingrich is perverse, and worse
He’s proud to be that way
Gingrich the Newt is puffed up like a toad
So full of himself that he’s bound to explode
And then we’ll raise up our tails in salute
A fitting tribute
To that horse’s patoot
Gingrich the Newt



I don’t know where he gets the “30 days after birth” thing, but all the conservative dunces out here in Colorado were frothing at the mouth over the language of an abortion bill that, theoretically, would allow a doctor to legally abort a fetus up until the moment of birth. No reputable doctor would do such a thing, obviously, but because of the same conservatives’ fight against any abortion, the bill exists to decriminalize any form of abortion, to avoid doctors facing legal repercussions for providing health care. Especially in the most tragic of circumstances, where the conservatives’ response would essentially be a shrug and a thump on their bibles.


He is unpleasant to look at.


Makes sense to me. If the books were ghost written, then ghosts are probably the audience who’d want to read them, and for that to happen the books need to die.


This kind of thing is always a callback to the Blood Libel and the Elders of Zion, that most stupid and stale of conspiracy theories. Gingrich knows exactly what he’s doing here.

Now that Pat Robertson has joined Falwell in relieving the world of their toxic presences, Gingrich is near the top of my list of those whose deaths I’ll celebrate. This bitter HS debate club dweeb has done an incredible amount of damage to America since the '90s and he’s not done yet.
