Newt Gingrich Uses Violent Rhetoric Directed At President Obama In Fundraiser Email

January 20, 2012
By Stephen D. Foster Jr.

Newt Gingrich is leading South Carolina in several new polls and his violent rhetoric towards President Obama may be the reason why. Not too long ago, Newt Gingrich told voters that not only would he “bloody President Obama’s nose,” he’d “knock him out.” Racist South Carolinians seem to be responding with glee to those remarks so Gingrich is including the threat in a fundraising email.


“From: RC Hammond – Newt

A Bloody Nose Just Won’t Cut It

Dear Friend and Supporter, Speaker Gingrich was recently asked at a townhall event how he would “bloody Obama’s nose,” and his response proved once again why he would be the best Republican nominee for President: “I don’t want to bloody his nose, I want to knock him out!” “


This is clearly violent rhetoric directed at the sitting President of the United States. The sad part is that it seems to be helping the Gingrich campaign. So when are the other candidates going to ratchet up the rhetoric?

1. Barack and Newt in the ring sounds entertaining....

3. Obama would beat fat boy to a pulp ... both intelectually, and in an actual fight.

Newt's only weapon is BLUSTER ... after that, he's a jelly fish stranded on the beach.

5. All the President would need to do is laugh at him when he goes on a rant. He'd start crying...

 

I'd bet a dozen doughnuts on it!

4. He is quite the winger, no?

Let him keep up the overt Dixieland Dog Whistle up. IF he wins the nomination and has to try to walk some of that stuff back, he will be an EPIC FAIL. The moderate and indie electorate absolutely will not have it

6. All I can remember was Mccain saying "That one"

That was another big torpedo that sunk mccain. The majority of Americans are not attracted to bluster, to meanness. Mccain showed a little, and lost because of it. Grinch is nothing but bombastic ridiculousness that he will never be able to rein down for general election. I want grinch to win, because it will be a trouncing the rethug party will never fully recover from.
