Gingrich Suggests Illegally Firing Federal Employees Over Liberal Views

Gingrich Suggests Illegally Firing Federal Employees Over Liberal Views 


Republican Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich suggested at a Fox News forum hosted by Mike Huckabee in South Carolina on Saturday that it would be a good idea to fire federal employees for being too liberal. Federal law, on the other hand, says Gingrich’s plan would be illegal. 

“I think an intelligent conservative wants the right federal employees delivering the right services in a highly efficient way and then wants to get rid of those folks who are in fact wasteful, or those folks who are ideologically so far to the left, or those people who want to frankly dictate to the rest of us,” Gingrich said in response to a question from a federal employee at the forum (emphasis ours).

"'...or those people who want to frankly dictate to the rest of us,' Gingrich said...."

Yes, liberals must not dictate how we live; they are atheists with no moral compass. Only hypocritical conservatives understand the nuances of society and have earned the ability to dictate how the american people should live. After all, every single founding father was a Rapture awaiting Christian, and society hasn't changed at all since they have died. It would be better if we all lived like the amish but without all of that pacifism, community responsibility, and other socialist ideals.

This man does not phase me with his ignorance any longer.  It is common with him.

Does this mean Newt will also fire ultra right wingers who want to dictate to us too? Like, um, himself...

 Nobody panic.  It isn't Newt Gingrich that wants to fire liberal federal employees.  It's the elusive "intelligent conservative" that wants to fire them.

Why does Newt hate America?  Why does he not understand that in our political system there are two distinct schools of thought (as well as others in between) that balance each other out, that ensure that neither ever gets more control than it should have?  Why does he hate the fact that we are all entitled to our political beliefs, whether or not he, or the current party in power, agrees with them?  Doesn't he understand that it is one of the things that make this country's government superior to those that don't allow such freedom?  I'm sad, Newt.
