Newt Gingrich Compares Modern-Day America To Communist Poland

Speaking at the late Jerry Falwell’s Liberty University, former House Speaker and seeming presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich accused President Obama of having “a secular socialist philosophy profoundly in conflict with the heart of the American system.” But that was just a warm-up, compared to comparing us to communist Poland.

“The Soviet Polish dictatorship was repressive,” Gingrich said, according to prepared remarks given to us by Gingrich’s office. “Imagine a country where you could not pray in school — the government was constantly tearing down crosses — in classrooms and newsrooms it was easier to be an atheist than to be a Christian.

“Imagine a small secular political elite imposing its radical values on a massive majority of worshippers. You can see how strange Poland was — or maybe you can see how relevant this story is to America today.”

I’ve love to write more, but I have a cross-tearing-down to attend.
