What a way to bring America together!

Offering perhaps the most nakedly political argument for firing federal employees, Gingrich said, “all those bureaucrats overwhelmingly voted for Clinton. There won’t be any real cooperation until we change federal law so we can fire them.”

African-Americans account for nearly 20 percent of the overall federal workforce — a proportion larger than their population size of 13 percent. Gingrich’s cynical political play is likely very cognizant of this fact. After all, only two (and a half, when counting the Maine split) states out of the 20 most dependent on federal funding did not vote for Trump.

    This is what tyrannical dictators do. Eliminate all opposition, ignore the people and do what they want.

  • fahvel

    baling wire secured around the testicles and then a classic texas pickup joy ride would do a thing like this some good.

    • mea_mark

      Why use bailing wire when there is so much old barb wire available?

  • anothertoothpick

    Guess which party will move us closer to facism?

    Republicans.

    In North Dakota, for instance, Republicans introduced a bill last week that would allow motorists to run over and kill any protester obstructing a highway as long as a driver does so accidentally. In Minnesota, a bill introduced by Republicans last week seeks to dramatically stiffen fines for freeway protests and would allow prosecutors to seek a full year of jail time for protesters blocking a highway. Republicans in Washington state have proposed a plan to reclassify as a felony civil disobedience protests that are deemed “economic terrorism.” Republicans in Michigan introduced and then last month shelved an anti-picketing law that would increase penalties against protestors and would make it easier for businesses to sue individual protestors for their actions. And in Iowa a Republican lawmaker has pledged to introduce legislation to crack down on highway protests.

      Who determines whether it was “accidental?”

      • Suzanne McFly

        Pretty sure the one run over won’t have much of a voice to provide their side of the situation. So it is safe to say the one who does the running over is the one who will determine if it was accidental or not.

      • anothertoothpick

        Kinda like that “stand your ground” law?

  • Mike

    And it’s not even his first day ….
    We’re totally fked

    • Bunya

      We sure are!

  • Larry Schmitt

    The things this ignoramus says continue to astound me. I wonder if he actually listened to himself.

    • Suzanne McFly

      Well he probably listens to rush and beck, they are all in a race to out-stupid one another.

      • Larry Schmitt

        A triple dead heat.

        • Suzanne McFly

          One of the worst.

    • anothertoothpick

      And this clown was a history professor.

      You would think he would know better than to make these statements.

      • Larry Schmitt

        None of them knows “better”, they only know worse.

        • anothertoothpick

          hahahahaha

          Sounds like you’ve been around Larry.

  • nola878

    They really want a Banana Republic, don’t they?

  • William

    The guy who was forced to resign because he was boffing his assistant, while his wife was in a cancer ward AND impeaching a president for having consensual sex should really just STFU.

  • Buford2k11

    Just ignore him….I know he won’t go away, but don’t waste any grey matter on this clown…

    • orsay

      So true! Will do say ANYTHING to get a camera/microphone in front of his face!

  • Bunya

    Newtered has lost all credibility. Whenever he talks, it’s best to just pat him on the head, say “good boy, now run out and play”. Nobody pays any attention to what he says anyway.

    • Roctuna

      He should go back to planning his Moon colony.

      • nastythinkingwomanmillstone

        His mind is already absent…likely circling the moon.

  • amersham1046

    Just another washed up GOPer that should be sent to the GOP care home in Bullwinkle Oklahoma

  • whatthe46

    so tRumps plan for creating jobs is to fire anyone in the federal gov that likely had not voted for him and this is someone who says he’s for the people eh?

    • anothertoothpick

      whatthe where in the heck have you been?

      I have been getting my ass kicked all over the place up in here.

      • whatthe46

        sorry sweetie. i’m gonna come in more often. i got side tracked.

    • cattnipp

      that and with the help of congress lower the pay of anyone who does not scream “YES” loud enough when he spews nonsense……. to $1 ….. yep congress made a law that they can cut the pay of ‘any individual that has any portion of their pay come from federal funds’ to $1, at will……. so next time your congressperson says F….U…. they may just cut your pay if you do not oblige their demand……….

      • whatthe46

        and his supporters that are now having buyers remorse expects sympathy. when i find them crying, i have not nice rants to bless them with.

  • robert

    From the apprentice to the appalling

  • Nancy Lee

    Is it not the case that a person’s vote is confidential in the US? How is it going to be determined which way an individual voted?

    • Kevin

      It’s a simple case of deductive logic, if your smart enough to work for the Federal Government, your smart enough not to have voted for Trump.

  • Apparently Newt does not like it when you disagree with America by Trump®. I thought he was the king of doublethink…

  • misterme

    So much for the secret ballot.
