Newt Gingrich agrees with most sane Americans – Madonna should not get away with issuing a threat against a United States President. If you or I admitted to hundreds of thousands of people that we’re “thinking about” BLOWING UP the White House, we’d be in deep trouble.
“She is parallel to the young fascists who ran around town breaking windows, all of whom should be given the maximum sentence,” Newt Gingrich said when calling for Madonna to be arrested during an interview with Fox News. “What you have is an emerging left-wing fascism — she’s part of it, and I think we have to be prepared to protect ourselves.”
During the so-called “Women’s March” on Washington, D.C. on Saturday, Madonna said she had thought many times about blowing up the White House, the Washington Examiner reports.
The outrageous celebrity has since tried to back track her violent threats against Donald Trump.
“The truth is she ought to be arrested for saying she has thought about blowing up the White House,” Gingrich went on to say. The Secret Service is supposed to be investigating Madonna’s comments, which should include at least a sit-down with the pop singer.
Madonna claims her “blowing up the White House” comments were taken entirely out of context. So, she seems to think there’s a good way to interpret a bomb threat that would cost the lives of countless innocents if carried out?
On Instagram, Madonna claimed she was not attempting to “promote violence.” Hmm… was she going to call the White House and urge everyone to leave BEFORE blowing up the building?
“It’s important people hear and understand my speech in it’s [sic] entirety rather than one phrase taken wildly out of context,” Madonna continued. The rest of her speech was filled with hatred, directed at Donald Trump and, by extension, the Americans who voted for him.
The 58-year-old singer also said, “I spoke in metaphor and I shared two ways of looking at things – one was to be hopeful, and one was to feel anger and outrage, which I have personally felt. However, I know that acting out of anger doesn’t solve anything. And the only way to change things for the better is to do it with love.”
“Yes, I’m angry. Yes, I am outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House,” she said. “But I know that this won’t change anything. We cannot fall into despair.” So, the only reason Madonna isn’t blowing up the White House is because she thinks it would be pointless? Madonna, I think your comment actually sounds worse with more context!
The Women’s March was only for liberal women – many of whom appeared to be white and affluent. A pro-life women’s group was unceremoniously banned from the event. It sounds like liberal women are still in denial that the rest of us women even exist.
