Newt Gingrich laid it out perfectly on Sunday.
The forced ouster of Mozilla co-founder and CEO Brendan Eich this week was a sign of the “new fascism” of liberalism that’s sweeping American life.
“People need to realize, 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.”
“This is just the most open and blatant example of the new fascism, which says, ‘if you don’t agree with us 100 percent, we have the right to punish you.’”
The best evidence Gingrich was right came from the half-hearted responses. Former Al Gore campaign manager Donna Brazile ludicrously tried to suggest Eich stepped aside voluntarily, while guest host Jonathan Karl tried pulling the race card into the discussion by asking about interracial marriage.
Gingrich stayed on point.
“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?” he said.
Newt’s usually the smartest guy in the room. With Brazile at the table, it’s not even close. Check out the video here.
