Newt Gingrich’s Plan: Interrogate Every Muslim In America




Many politicians are publicly responding to the latest terrorist attacks in Nice, France. Newt Gin1grich is taking the opportunity to throw one last Hail Mary to be Trump’s running mate. Ben Mankiewicz (What The Flick?), John Iadarola (ThinkTank), and Jimmy Dore, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

"Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has suggested testing all US Muslims to see if they believe in Sharia, and deporting those who do.

Sharia is Islamic religious law based on the Koran, the life of Muhammad and the rulings of Islamic scholars.

Mr Gingrich's comments follow an attack in the French city of Nice, which has killed at least 84 people.

His comments echo the sentiments of Donald Trump, who has said Muslims should be banned from entering the US.

"Western civilisation is in a war. We should frankly test every person here who is of a Muslim background and if they believe in Sharia they should be deported," Mr Gingrich told Fox News.

"Sharia is incompatible with western civilisation. Modern Muslims who have given up Sharia, glad to have them as citizens. Perfectly happy to have them next door," he added.”*

    • +Florida Gators Please enlighten me on your foolproof method of screening
      every Muslim in the country for their adherence to Sharira Law.

    • the awkward moment when an inbred trailer trash redneck white devil speaks
      of the word “reasonable”

    • +You Lie You refuse to look at the facts. Until you read the facts and
      paint a full picture of what Islam’s role is in the western world you can’t
      make a reasonable assessment. I’ve spent the last two years studying this
      in depth. Islamic values are not compatible with western civilization. We
      need to temp ban, while our national security agencies develop a viable
      immigration system for Muslims. Do you not want to keep terrorists out?

    • +Georg Hieronymus What college were you studying this at? Who funded your
      research and who did you interview? May I see the interviews and source
      materials that support your conclusions? I mean, since you did all this
      research. It would be really easy to just tell me who the books were
      written by and the names of the people you studied. What exactly did you
      study, you didnt mention the exact subject of your studies. Was it “islamic
      values” you studied or “muslims”? I’d really like to know.

      You do realize they could simply check the box marked “christian” instead
      of muslim, and gain access. You know that, right?

  1. Young Turks are the biggest fools on the planet. You need to be run over by
    a truck to knock some sense in you. You really don’t get it.

    • +PandasDontShare *Troll = People eho say dumb bullshit that’s not true.*
      I agree but add that it often (like here) is *irrelevant* too. When this
      cliché attack is introduuced into every second TYT video no matter what the
      vid-topic is, then it is *irrelevant spam,* another tel-tale sign of a
      troll.
      Please do report spam so paid trolls have to do more work, creating more
      accounts, for the money 😉

    • +I Am A Wolf So why isn’t anyone wanting to interrogate Christians? Even
      though I am catholic, I still want to know, because it is also an ideology
      that has a lot of violence.

  2. Western civilization suffers terror because of shitty people like this
    Gingrich character. He’s so ignorant & scared.

    • +Dilaudid King In other words, your claim that terrorist aren’t really
      terrorist was way too broad. Acknowledge that ISIS are terrorists. After
      all, those are the ones that most often come to mind when a westerner think
      of terrorists.

    • +Sturgeon yes, there would be terrorism. There was islam terrorism before
      any American interference. It came into existence in the wake of the fall
      of the Ottoman empire (because of real or perceived injustice, humiliation
      etc) and it has since then never stopped to expand. ISIS would have risen
      regardless of American politics, as a bundling of all those fragmented
      terrorist groups looking for occasions and allies to expand their hate
      ridden agenda. The koran gives them the perfect legitimation for that jihad
      against everything that is different and not conform the rules. So stop
      blaming the west. Your terrorism is your love child

  3. Where would these interrogations take place? Internment camps or
    concentration camps?

  4. Can we also label the KKK as a terrorist organization and kick them outta
    the country too.

    • +Noe Sierra your ideology is the problem you want it your way or nothing
      else you don’t want compromise you only care if you are happy not the
      millions of other people who are religious and completely harmless this
      isn’t fair to others

    • do not blame whole religions for the actions of the few purporting to act
      in their names. It is hatred/fear of the other that is the cancer.

    • No they don’t you fuckwit. They can all move to Egypt or Turkey, both of
      which have no war (other than the brief coup d’etat)

    • +John Kaiser
      When your opinions and expressions are about how much you hate the
      constitutional rights and America then you should probably leave.

    • No it exacly the opposit, muslim are our time’s nazis, the war has started
      and we lost all battles

    • Muslims are not not in any way equivalent to Nazis. There is no eugenicist
      racial supremacy ideology in Islam. In islam there is no racism/distinction
      between black, white, arab, asian etc. Only one humanity under Allah, one
      ummah (community), a multi-ethnic polity.
      Islam is no more a backward religion than Christianity or Judaism etc.
      Every religion has fanatics that do unspeakable things in its’ name. It is
      Fascism to want the state to have more and more power/control over the
      citizenry, it is Nazism to target one group in society on the basis of
      race/religion. Muslims are the new Jews, not the new Nazis.

  5. So any muslim can be deported without due process, but people on the
    terrorist watch list can still buy guns

    • Non sequitur response. Hey, Victor, are you one of these open border guys
      who hopes the entire third world immigrates to our shores? All in the name
      of your warped version of “due process.”

      Yes, I thought so.

    • +Jonathan Seale Measuring illegal migration flows is challenging because
      there are no official counts of how many illegal immigrants enter and leave
      the U.S. each year.

  6. Sharia Law is Antithetical to The founding Principles of America and that
    is a fact. I don’t think we should deport those who think that, but banning
    them from coming in wouldn’t be horrible.

    • +You Lie Almost nothing of what you said can be argued against. The US
      shouldn’t have had invaded Iraq. I was one of the many million europeans
      who marched against the invasion. There was a colossal opposition from the
      public against it. However the invasion was not organized and carried out
      following a christian directive. The Vatican, a ghastly pygmy anachronism,
      was against it too. One of the reasons why the west is better than the
      muslim world is precisely because the separation of church and state. The
      decisions you are protesting were made in christian countries but not under
      a christian mandate. Finally, since you speak about the crusades, i’m
      actually writing to you from a country which suffered a lot from muslim
      invasions and the barbary slave trade…the crusades were a defensive war
      to try to stop al lot of the aggression carried out by muslims. Take that
      into consideration.

    • western “civilization” is incompatible with every other civilization as
      Malcolm x said 50 years ago.
      thats why terrorist white devils created apartheid in every place they
      colonized and committed genocide and Holocaust

    • +Mr. R Is that why the church would burn doctors at the stake for
      performing autopsies? Because some of the early christians were doctors and
      appreciated the scientific method?

      So much denial.

  7. You regressives just refuse to admit this is a problem. Keep burying your
    head in the sand. People are waking up
