Newt Gingrich: Election is ‘Life and Death Struggle With a Left-Wing Movement’ Trying to ‘Radicalize America’


Newt Gingrich declared on Fox News that the upcoming midterm elections, unlike any before is a life and death struggle between the forces of good and evil in the world.

Sean Hannity noted that he believes “we’re better off” under President Donald Trump, and asked the former Republican House Speaker whether he agreed.

Gingrich — whose political bloodlust was just extensively profiled by McKay Coppins in The Atlantic — had this to say:

“I think we’re better off but I don’t think that’s what this election is about. This election is a life and death struggle with a left-wing movement which wants to radicalize America.”

Scary stuff. As if the messaging wasn’t brazen enough, Gingrich went on to hammer home to keywords he thinks will define the midterm elections: “I think two words are going to define the 2018 election in the next three weeks. One is Kavanaugh and the other is caravan.”

Gingrich added that “the left is eager” to have the group of 4,000 Honduran migrants, currently making their way to Mexico, storm the U.S. border.

While the contentious confirmation process of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh has subsided from the news, Newt’s conspiracy theory that the left is cheering on a Honduran caravan packed with criminals found a home on Fox & Friends Thursday morning, and eventually made it’s way onto Trump’s Twitter feed.
