Newt Gingrich and the Rule of Law

Newt Gingrich commenting on his dislike of things he dislikes:

There’s “no reason the American people need to tolerate a judge that out of touch with American culture,” Gingrich said on CBS’ Face the Nation.

You mean like Brown v. Board of Education? Courts are required to uphold the rights of the minority as well as the majority.

And Gingrich recently has said judges should have to explain some of their decisions before Congress.

Judges do explain their decisions in great detail in their rulings. The Constitution provides a means for Congress to enforce accountability on the judiciary. It’s called impeachment. It’s a subject about which Newt knows a thing or two.

“Do you want to move towards American exceptionalism, reassert the Constitution, reassert the nature of America, or do you, in fact, want to become a secular, European, sort of beaurocratic socialist society?”

Hate it break the news, but the Constitution establishes a secular government for the United States. You are of course free to work toward the repeal of the First Amendment if you wish. Let me know how that goes.
