NEWT GINGRICH: Democrats Should Apologize For Failing America’s Cities

The cities which have been destroyed by riots and looting all have one thing in common.

They have been controlled exclusively by Democrats for generations.

This is an inconvenient truth you rarely hear mentioned by people in the media.

Newt Gingrich wrote about it in a recent column for FOX News:

Democrats must apologize – here’s how they’ve failed America’s cities

In my new book “Trump and the American Future,” I outline the radicalism of the Democratic Party – especially in the U.S. House of Representatives.

This analysis was driven home when I saw the picture of Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other Democratic members of the House and Senate kneeling in symbolic submission to radical left’s anti-police agenda. I was appalled.

My initial reaction was the same as Georgia State Trooper O’Neal Saddler, who as the Washington Examiner reported: “was recorded telling protesters in Hartwell that he only kneels ‘for one person: God.’”

“I was supposed to be out of town this weekend with my wife. I took off today, this weekend, but I’m out here to make sure y’all are safe. … I have much respect, but I only kneel for one person, and that’s God.”

Trooper Saddler is an African-American, which made his refusal even more striking.

In the spirit of New Hampshire’s state slogan, “live free or die,” and in recognition of an American tradition of stiff-necked pride and independence, my initial reaction was that the whole Democratic Party exercise was absurd.

But then I was reminded again that the Democrats should apologize – to all of us.

After all, it is Democratic control of cities which has turned many of them into disasters. While the Democrats want to blame President Trump, let’s look at the facts about which party has crippled America’s cities.

Gingrich has been making the same point on Twitter:

Gingrich is correct.
