Gingrich Says ‘Work’ Is A ‘Strange, Distant Concept’ To Juan Williams

Source: Think Progress





Newt Gingrich launched a now-infamous tirade against moderator Juan Williams during Monday night’s GOP debate after Williams dared to ask him if he could understand why some African-Americans were offended by Gingrich’s obsession with food stamps and child labor. “No, I don’t see that,” Gingrich sneered back.

<snip>

Today, during a campaign stop in South Carolina, Gingrich recalled his exchange with Williams and used the same kind of suggestive language that Williams had objected to — this time directed at Williams himself:

GINGRICH: I had a very interesting dialogue Monday night in Myrtle Beach with Juan Williams about the idea of work, which seemed to Juan Williams to be a strange, distant concept.


Many pundits have seen racial undertones in Gingrich’s belittling of Williams during the debate. “That’s the way I like to spend my Martin Luther King, Jr. Day: watching Newt Gingrich sneer at Juan Williams, a black man, for having the temerity to ask him” a tough question, New York Times columnist Charles Blow wrote.

1. When's the last time Newt lifted a finger? I'll bet he's NEVER cleaned a toilet.

3. Newt knows as much about real work as he does about marital fidelity.

9. Newt's blatant racism may win him the SC primary but it won't work nationwide.

11. Williams clearly doesn't identify with Mr. Tibbs slapping the shit out of the old white mans face

in "In The Heat Of The Night" I would not have thought so anyway...

14. He just won South Carolina

Newt blew the dog whistle, the right people in South Carolina (the only place that's still racist enough to fly the fucking Confederate flag) heard him clearly. The "Southern Strategy" still works.
