Newt Gingrich: historian or dumb-ass?

"I spoke as a historian who's looked at the world stage for a very long time."
-- New Gingrich, defending his his claim that Palestinians are an "invented" people 
It's amazing watching completely backward arguments pass for legitimate debate these days.  Well, I guess it's been going on for some time now, but this was a particularly blatant, egregious example. Take a look if you can stomach it.


Newt Gingrich alleges to be a historian, and has said that the Palestinians are an "invented" people. Gingrich continues to vigorously defend this completely ridiculous claim:
Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich on Saturday defended his statement that the Palestinians are an "invented" people, brushing aside criticism that he had unnecessarily made the Mideast peace process more difficult.

"Is what I said factually true? Yes," Gingrich said during a candidate debate in which he drew applause for asserting that it was time someone spoke the truth about the nature of Israel's struggle with the Palestinians.

"Somebody ought to have the courage to tell the truth. These people are terrorists," he said. "It's fundamentally time for somebody to have the guts to stand up and say, 'Enough lying about the Middle East."'
Of course, we know the Palestinians have a long history, and certainly qualify as a people (see #4).  Wikipedia provides a useful summary of just who the Palestinians are, not that it matters to the Zionist stooge, Newt Gingrich:
Genetic analysis and historical accounts suggest the Muslims of Palestine are largely descendants of Christians and Jews of the southern Levant, and descendents of a core population that lived there in prehistoric time.
Gingrich probably hasn't heard of Shlomo Sand, an Israeli academic, who contends it is actually the Jews who are an invented people. He also claims Jews have no historical ties to the land of Palestine.  In the video below, Sand gives a lecture on his book, The Invention of the Jewish People.





Israel's surprising best seller contradicts founding ideology
No one is more surprised than Shlomo Sand that his latest academic work has spent 19 weeks on Israel's bestseller list -- and that success has come to the history professor despite his book challenging Israel's biggest taboo. 
Sand argues that the idea of a Jewish nation -- whose need for a safe haven was originally used to justify the founding of the state of Israel -- is a myth invented little more than a century ago. 
An expert on European history at Tel Aviv University, Sand drew on extensive historical and archaeological research to support not only this claim but several more -- all equally controversial. 
In addition, he argues that the Jews were never exiled from the Holy Land, that most of today's Jews have no historical connection to the land called Israel and that the only political solution to the country's conflict with the Palestinians is to abolish the Jewish state.  [...]
You want to know the truth about a particular subject? It'll be the exact opposite of what Newt Gingrich and all the other Zionist puppets have to say about it. Palestinians are an invented people? Well, no, the Jews appear to be. Palestinians are terrorists? Well, no, the Jews and their colonies in the West are. Iran is an imminent threat to world peace? Well, actually, no, the Jews and their colonies in the West are the only threat to peace right now.

Watching the spectacle unfold in the video above reminded me of George Orwell's essay, "Politics and the English Language." A brief excerpt in closing:
In our time, political speech and writing are largely the defense of the indefensible. Things like the continuance of British rule in India, the Russian purges and deportations, the dropping of the atom bombs on Japan, can indeed be defended, but only by arguments which are too brutal for most people to face, and which do not square with the professed aims of the political parties. Thus political language has to consist largely of euphemism., question-begging and sheer cloudy vagueness. Defenseless villages are bombarded from the air, the inhabitants driven out into the countryside, the cattle machine-gunned, the huts set on fire with incendiary bullets: this is called pacification. Millions of peasants are robbed of their farms and sent trudging along the roads with no more than they can carry: this is called transfer of population or rectification of frontiers. People are imprisoned for years without trial, or shot in the back of the neck or sent to die of scurvy in Arctic lumber camps: this is called elimination of unreliable elements. Such phraseology is needed if one wants to name things without calling up mental pictures of them. [...]

  1. John, doesn't this country make you feel like Oliver Wendel Douglass in Green Acres? LOL
    It's not funny, but it is that!
    The Jews have hired all the dumbass's we see before us. All our sweet American lives. They set the stage all along...everyone hired to dumb us down from day one all the way down the line. Maybe it is funny. Like finding out we've been on candid camera (all our lives)but one thing I know is that they don't seem to realize that the jig is up because the idiots are still playing and we are not buying. No, it is not funny and they have to pay I don't care how or what it takes.

  2. Just as scary as Newt's assertions?

    The fools who applauded him so loudly!

    "My friend Bibi...."

    This is the man who calls all nonJews scum but uses them anyhow because "Israel needs all the fools it can get" to advance the Zionist/Communist/Bolshevik/Fascist cause.....

  3. Scary to think, John, that this clown could be the next US Prez...

    America is one really screwed up nation at the moment, and a rude awakening must take place to save it from itself!

  4. Hey Genie! LOL! Sometimes, I have to laugh at this ridiculousness taking place on a daily basis. Everything is backwards, up is down, left is right, blue is red.

    And yes, they do have to pay! Until they do nothing will change!

  5. Hey Noor, I really do wonder where they get these people in the crowd? I wouldn't be surprised if they were actors! Then again, there are so many brainwashed Christian Zionists and Jewish sycophants in this country, they may not even need to hire actors...

    It would be a scary thought indeed if Gingrich did become our next president.

  6. Not to pick on Genie, but the plural of dumb-asses does not have an apostrophe -- and an error in such a comment is a wee bit ironic, no?

    As for the substance of the article, Newt is not stupid and neither are his bosses. Here is a short post I made about the issue of mislabeling our opposition: http://thegreatpurification.wordpress.com/2011/11/23/good-willed-bunglers-or-something-much-worse/

    Where Newt is concerned, there are not only two options, i.e., historian or dumb-ass. He is an intelligent man who sold his soul long ago -- and his present actions are consistent with that fact. Think of the actions of the Bernank. How many times do we read about his having made "another mistake," etc. Love him or hate him, the Bernank has done his job flawlessly and we would stand a much better chance in the ongoing battle if we gave credit where it is due, even (and perhaps especially) to our enemies.

    Newt is a lying sack of sh*t who sold out ages ago, but if we think he is just 'stupid,' we are the dense ones. Godspeed to all...and to Genie, absolutely no offense meant.

  7. Unbelievable. Truly shocking how up front and obvious these hucksters and actors - even Ron Paul - are in their fealty to Israel. Shocking.

    Part of it I guess is the fact that I have no cable or sattelite TV, so I honestly don't see the propaganda streams that most people do. And I highly recommend it, as anything you really need to see a replay of . . . you can find on the internet, and it's free. And it clears your mind to truly grasp how out of this world FUCKED some of the things that are "passed off as normal" on TV, said and done, truly are.

    This was one of those moments for me.

    Would have loved to have pointed out (to thunderous boos) that Israel and jews are an invented country and people.

    Philistines = Palestinians, btw. Look up how to say Palestine in their own language and you will get the drift.

    This is still so shocking . . . I mean, this was actually on television?!? It was passed off as intelligent debate for a national election-run debate, and they only fall all over themselves talking about their fealty to Israel?!?

    re: thegreatpurification comments:
    I somewhat agree with you that these guys have to be intelligent to some degree to be true-blue effective propaganda tools and teleprompt readers . . . but certainly to a smaller degree than what I would term as truly intelligent. But your point about the "dumbass / incompetence" excuse is well taken . . .

    I decided the term as I was using it looked better in slang.

  9. Hey purification, points all well taken regarding Newt Gingrich and the rest of these puppets. And yes, there are other options than historian or dumb-ass to describe Newt Gingrich. The context of the post regarded his description of himself as a historian, which is a complete and utter absurdity. Either way, it was a dumb-ass comment, that's for sure!

    All these politicians are calculating, conniving bastards to a certain extent, some more than others, and still others a lot more than all the rest. I tend to think of most politicians as whores, lacking all integrity, decency, and sense of truth/justice. Ron Paul is the sole exception, and even he's lacking in some areas (9/11 Truth for instance).

  10. Hey slozo! Isn't it just astounding watching these brazen shills bow down and worship Israel and the Jews? Ron Paul is certainly not on the level of the rest of these douche-bags!

    I actually just got a TV from a friend, but don't have cable or Netfix or whatever else is out there. I did buy one of those cables to hook my computer up, and it's the shit! No need for cable, the internet has everything you need, at least for now. If you are watching TV with all your spare time you are a slave to the New (Jew) World Order.

    And yes, this was really on television, and yes he was really allowed to get away with it. George Stephanapolis is a complete waste of space, another one of these well-paid, corporate/state-promoting sellouts pushing propaganda and allowing blatant absurdities to be spewed unchallenged. Welcome to the United States of Israel buddy.

  11. Hey John Friend,...Nice Post. Gin-grinch is a retard, the Doc's a fool and seems like a pressure release valve to me, the guy is a wet hanky.

    As for rockets into israhell, BULLSHIT, you yankees just finished paying for "Iron Dome", two years ago it became active: "The most comprehensive and effective anti-ballistic missile defense system in the world!" The most expensive to! Over a hundred and eighty Mill'!

    There is an NGO called "Rocket Watch", they have reported many times that the only rockets being fired AT israhell, appear to originate from areas of [IOF] (isahell offense farce) concentration. So, no real rockets could pass through the "Iron Dome" airspace and were some random Pally to attempt it, regardless of the indefatigable justification; the retrace anti-battery system hard-wired to Iron Dome would send response counter-battery salvos of artillery within a minute, obliteration for the issuing Battery and the Pallies know it!

    Funny though, this system has never been used in the two years since it became active and the yids claimed just last week that they are being hit by AT LEAST a hundred rockets a day, BULLSHIT!

    The semantic argument about the Palestinian identity is akin to picking the peanutz out of historical shit. The Palestinians, regardless of their title have been in constant occupation of those lands since before the time of Iesu! So...

    Fuck israhell:

    FREE PALESTINE!

    Y'all...

  12. Hey veritas! I totally hear you re Ron Paul man...I can't fully get on board until I start hearing someone saying "Jews", "9/11" and "false flag" in the same sentence, lol! Same with Wall Street, we need prosecutions and arrests, a complete dismantling of this criminal usurious system. The federal system has proven to be completely tyrannical and open to exploitation by criminals networks.

    Agreed 100% regarding the "Palestinian terrorists" and their "rocket attacks" blah, blah, blah. It's such a ridiculous, fictitious argument, yet it continues to have legitimacy and go unchallenged in this country due to the Zionist Jewish influence here.

  14. John,

    A bit off topic:

    I am getting involved with an online radio program. The premise is evaluating race and the divides that the Elite use to keep us separated and at each others throats (instead of focusing on THEIR throats).

    Currently named The Raw Dawg Buffalo show (on air for over three years), the format changes at the first of the year.

    The show will be renamed, "A Redneck, A Jew and A Negro." And we don't intend on holding back on the Jew (a guy named Kelso that used to write at my blog before a falling out over my supposed anti-semitism".

    From the redneck's perspective, I plan on jumping full bore into the tribalism/clannish tendencies of Jews, even when they disagree on Zionism. Discussion of a historical perspective of Jews and how they got the power they wield is a prime motivator for me.

    But we will love to have people who are versed in this subject (and I understand that you have been already sharing on a program or two). Would you be interested?

  15. Hey John Friend

    How are you doing?
    I have been so swamped as of late.
    Heard you on the truth hertz show...
    You did quite well, I thought.
    Interesting that some idiotic caller phoned in to play the disinfo card?
    Over something you said about the occupy movement....
    Pointless.

    I have said it previously if we don't want the occupy movement infiltrated or whatever then we should get off our asses and help them out.

    Like you did.
    You put your money where your mouth was and the caller didn't.

    Shlomo Sand, very interesting.
    I had an interview up with him some time ago on my blog
    I think he is brilliant.
    Lays it out like it is!

    Are you aware the Shlomo Sand's theory was predated by Arthur Koestler?

    In his book- The 13th tribe

    If you are great if your not, drop me a line at the blog and I will come back and leave a link for you to get it!

    Bye for now

  17. Hey Penny! I'm doing pretty good, I've been really busy lately! And yeah, the guy at the end of the Truth Hertz show was a jerk, to put it mildly. Thanks for the kind words!

    BTW- I'm definitely aware of the 13th Tribe! I've read it, but it was a while ago...very interesting perspective.
