    Default Newt Gingrish's gay sister slams him hard over anti-gay/anti Prop 8 stance


    Newt Gingrich's sister really lowered the boom on his anti-gay rhetoric after his many appearances on FOX news in a letter she posted on the Huffington Post. He's been really brutal over the Prop 8 vote when he recently just stated on The Factor (see video) that:

    "there is a gay and secular fascism in this country that wants to impose its will on the rest of us, is prepared to use violence, to use harassment. I think it is prepared to use the government if it can get control of it. I think that it is a very dangerous threat to anybody who believes in traditional religion."

    Aren't those just lovely words to hear being uttered by your own brother? Candice writes to him and says:

    A Letter to My Brother Newt Gingrich

    Welcome to the 21st century, big bro. I can understand why you're so afraid of the energy that has been unleashed after gay and lesbian couples had their rights stripped away from them by a hateful campaign. I can see why you're sounding the alarm against the activists who use all the latest tech tools to build these rallies from the ground up in cities across the country.

    This is a movement of the people that you most fear. It's a movement of progress -- and your words on FOX News only show how truly desperate you are to maintain control of a world that is changing before your very eyes.

    Very powerful stuff....

    Dear Newt,
    I recently had the displeasure of watching you bash the protesters of the Prop 8 marriage ban to Bill O'Reilly on FOX News. I must say, after years of watching you build your career by stirring up the fears and prejudices of the far right, I feel compelled to use the words of your idol, Ronald Reagan, "There you go, again." However, I realize that you may have been a little preoccupied lately with planning your resurrection as the savior of your party, so I thought I would fill you in on a few important developments you might have overlooked.

    The truth is that you're living in a world that no longer exists. I, along with millions of Americans, clearly see the world the way it as -- and we embrace what it can be. You, on the other hand, seem incapable of looking for new ideas or moving beyond what worked in the past.

    Welcome to the 21st century, big bro.

    This is a movement of the people that you most fear. It's a movement of progress -- and your words on FOX News only show how truly desperate you are to maintain control of a world that is changing before your very eyes.

    Then again, we've seen these tactics before. We know how much the right likes to play political and cultural hardball, and then turn around and accuse us of lashing out first. You give a pass to a religious group -- one that looks down upon minorities and women -- when they use their money and membership roles to roll back the rights of others, and then you label us "fascists" when we fight back. You belittle the relationships of gay and lesbian couples, and yet somehow neglect to explain who anointed you the protector of "traditional" marriage. And, of course, you've also mastered taking the foolish actions of a few people and then indicting an entire population based on those mistakes. I fail to see how any of these patterns coincide with the values of "historic Christianity" you claim to champion.read on

    Again, nothing new here. This is just more of the blatant hypocrisy we're used to hearing.

    Thanks Candice for telling it like it is. It must be very difficult for you to have a brother who has the influence he does in the Conservative movement that actively speaks out against the way you choose to live your life.

    Here Bio:

    Since 1995, Candace Gingrich has served as a key advocate for issues of importance to the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community. Her 1996 autobiography, The Accidental Activist, was a best seller in the GLBT community. In addition, Gingrich has been profiled in The New York Times, The Washington Post and Newsweek, and has appeared on Good Morning America, Larry King Live, Prime Time Live and other television shows. Her involvement in the movement for equal rights began when her brother, then-Rep. Newt Gingrich, R-Ga.,was elected House speaker.

    Truman Capote? Or perhaps Gore Vidal? Myra Breckenridge would be an appropriate choice, I think.

    Newt has a gay sister. Dick Cheney has a gay daughter. Alan Keyes has a gay daughter. Apparently, either family values don't matter to being gay or the Republican politicians don't have good family values. Just saying.

    And if we get what the right wing fundies say, all of those women made a 'choice' to be gay and can be 'cured' with the right help. Idiots.

    I just wonder who they are going to demonize after the gays become passe' and boring, which fighting for a thing as scintillating, far-fetched and exotic as 'marriage' is ultimately going to bring about. Doing the anti-immigration thing may have cost republicans this election, so they can't go after illegals again. I honestly believe that is why there was so much 'socialist/communist' being bandied about, they were desperate. Who will be next on the list of un-murkan people everyone should hate? Bingo players? What will it be come next election, cat people vs. dog people? The whole divide and conquer thing is so tired.
