The floundering Fox News Trumpskyites are getting more desperate with each day that passes since Joe Biden decisively defeated their hero Donald Trump. It wasn’t enough that their inflammatory, seditious rhetoric incited a violent attack on Congress that resulted in five deaths and dozens more injured. Nope. They are recklessly persisting in the dissemination of the Big Lie that the election was stolen, knowing the harm that it’s done and will do.

Notable among the Trump Insurrection Squad is Fox News contributor and larcenous ex-Congress-critter, Newt Gingrich. He has not paused for a moment his campaign to overturn the 2020 presidential election, or to rip apart America’s democracy trying. In pursuit of those treasonous goals, Gingrich took to Twitter to post a preposterous comment that could only make sense to a crack-addled cretin with habitual evil intent. Gingrich tweeted that…
If President Biden really wanted unity rather than surrender he would call on the Senate to drop impeachment. With troops in the capitol, cries for exterminating and “reeducating” Republicans, AOC’s fear of being around Republicans, the divisions grow deeper and more bitter.

SERIOUSLY? Gingrich is attempting to draw a comparison between Trump, a cowardly hulk of blubber, and the courageous Putin critic Alexei Navalny. Never mind that Trump is more like an aspiring Putin-esque dictator who is desperately clinging to power, while Navalny is a fighter against everything that Trump stands for. And Nalvalny is willing to put his life on the line for the principles of free and fair elections that respect the will of the people, while Trump has been struggling for months to undermine democracy from his White House bunker, aided and abetted by authoritarian cohorts like Rudy Giuliani, Ted Cruz, and Gingrich’s confederates at Fox News.
Gingrich’s comparison of Trump to someone who survived prison and poisoning is ludicrous on its face. Trump is infamous for evading military service during the Vietnam War by claiming to have nonexistent bone spurs. Trump could never be a martyr because the only cause to which he is loyal is himself.
What’s more, Gingrich’s idea of “unity” is actually the surrender of Democrats to the losers in November’s election. He believes that it’s necessary to let criminals go free rather than risk riling up the criminal’s supporters and accomplices. In reality, unity and the healing that Americans yearn for, is only possible when the traitors have been appropriately punished. But Gingrich would rather portray the perpetrators of a violent insurrection as victims who deserve some perverse manifestation of mercy.
Gingrich even refers to “cries for exterminating Republicans,” when he is the only one who ever raised that cry. He whined to Sean Hannity, without any justification, that Biden associates were “radicals who believe if they could exterminate the Republicans that would be one way to get to unity.” And now he’s relying on his own lie to further the attack he himself invented.
Make no mistake… What Gingrich is really doing is issuing a threat. He is insinuating that any attempt to hold Trump accountable for his crimes, via impeachment and/or prosecution, will result in more violence on the part of Trump’s glassy-eyed disciples, spurred on by provocateurs like Gingrich. That’s the same thing that Trump has done, and that Fox News has done, in the weeks since the American people chose Biden over Trump.
Gingrich is sending a signal to Trump’s Seditionists to stand by in case Trump is held to the same legal standard that all Americans are held to. He is preparing them to stage another attack on American democracy, in defense of the wannabe Tyrant of Mar-a-Lago. And that is behavior that is purposefully treasonous and subject to prosecution itself. So the Biden Justice Department should be prepared to indict Gingrich and his ilk shortly after Trump’s Senate impeachment trial. That’s the path to the unity and justice and healing that our nation needs so badly.
