Newt Gingrich has got the panties of the NYT in a twist

Following are a few excerpts from an editorial in the NYT headed: "Mr. Gingrich’s Intolerant History". I myself think that Newt is a has-been and an irrelevance to today's politics but I am struck by the NYT's failure to offer any argument against what Newt has said. All they offer is condemnation and abuse. That's typical of Leftism of course but it's sort of saddening that even the NYT cannot rise above that level. They have their ears so closed to any challenge that they think it is just obvious that they are right and Newt is wrong.

Newt certainly defends his viewpoints vigorously and at length so why don't they quote more than a few words from him and show where his arguments are wrong? They can't. They just need to have their little orgasm of abuse. Hate speech towards Newt Gingrich? You betcha!
Donald Trump is an amateur compared with Mr. Gingrich at sliming the Obama administration — as well as Democrats, Muslims, blacks and gay men and lesbians.

The Democrats who won in 2008, including President Obama, are “left-wing radicals” who lead a “secular socialist machine,” he wrote in his 2010 book, “To Save America.”

He accused them of producing “the greatest political corruption ever seen in modern America.” And then the inevitable historical coup de grĂ¢ce: “The secular-socialist machine represents as great a threat to America as Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union once did.”

The slurs don’t stop there. He compared the Muslims who wanted to open an Islamic center in Lower Manhattan to the German Reich, saying it “would be like putting a Nazi sign next to the Holocaust Museum.”

This nuanced grasp of world affairs was reinforced when he said that Mr. Obama displayed “Kenyan, anti-colonial behavior.”
