THE NEWT DEAL  11:55 am February 2, 2012

Gingrich Super PAC Head Rick Tyler: Democratic Party Aborts Black Babies

by Liz Colville

Rick Tyler, Newt Gingrich’s former communications director and now the head of his super PAC Bloviating About Our Future, had/created a terrible time on MSNBC following Tuesday’s primary in Florida. Rachel Maddow had Tyler on during her primary coverage to talk about whether Gingrich’s superbly negative Florida not-victory speech was using “racially coded language” to try to “appeal to Southern white conservatives.” Maddow said she personally thought Gingrich was using language “designed to call on resentment of African American achievement in this country.” Tyler immediately accused MNSBC of “race baiting” and then launched into an insane analysis of how the Democrats have failed African Americans. The subtext was that Democrats are racist because they support abortion. EH?

The nugget of Tyler’s remarks:

…the Democrats have failed in the public schools with the African Americans, they abort their babies, they’ve done nothing to lift them out of poverty.

Santorum? Is that you? When Tyler defended Gingrich’s remarks that Obama is the “food stamp president,” post-primary opiner Al Sharpton responded by saying that there were more new food stamp applications under W. than Obama. Also, GLOBAL RECESSION HELLOOOOOOOO. When asked to explain what Republican principles have actually helped lift people out of poverty, Tyler admits that, well, there haven’t been any, but remember Abraham Lincoln? He was a Republican. And also, Gingrich HAS some principles that will lift people out of poverty! Basically he is the first one since Lincoln, if you would just give him a chance!

Maybe we have good intentions too, but our policies haven’t been tried…Maybe we should try our policies, that put people back to work and not … give them a handout, tell them to live in public housing, shut up, collect a check and vote for Democrats…

No word yet on what those policies actually are, despite Maddow’s, Sharpton’s and Lawrence O’Donnell’s endless attempts to get Tyler to explain them. Tyler’s basic gist: EVERYONE SUCKS EXCEPT WE, WHO HAVE DONE NOTHING.

As Tyler and Sharpton escalated to the point where it became really difficult to detect actual English words, Tyler then brought George Lucas into it, just to strengthen his argument, saying that African Americans didn’t have “any” role models until the movie Red Tails (which is about the Tuskegee Airmen).

“They have many,” said Sharpton. “They have doctors, they have lawyers. We have many role models.”

“Sure they do, but Hollywood doesn’t show that.” WHAT DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH NEWT? Is Team Newt really trying to somehow take credit for knowledge of the existence of Red Tails, just because he and George Lucas are both sort of cuddly and like space???

So what, for what couldn’t possibly be the last time, but should be, is THE NEWT DEAL? Nobody knows, which is really fine, come to think of it, shhhhh. [Salon]

How come Callista's never had kids? Or is she hiding something?

More like "tucking" something. God, for Newt's sake, I hope it isn't as big as that nose of hers.

Same thing with wife #2. Married Newt, but no babies. Plus the time they were both mistresses and had to be really careful not to get preggers. Old wife #1 had two chilluns.

Cafeteria calf-lick!

Lionel[redacted]Esq February 2, 2012 at 2:34 pm

Well, the Catholic Church has nothing to say about women giving birth, so I assume they use plenty of contraception.

Anyway, Newt always ditches his wives after they get flabby from birth.

Barb February 2, 2012 at 11:56 am

Shut up about the abortions already. They will do anything to keep from answering where the jobs are.

Boojum_Reborn February 2, 2012 at 12:05 pm

In the fetii. They've been aborted.

MrFizzy February 2, 2012 at 2:09 pm

Yeah, but what about all the abortionist jobs?

Schmannnity February 2, 2012 at 11:57 am

Look for Newt to support more Mormon abortions.

FraAnima February 2, 2012 at 11:57 am

Of course we abort as many babies as possible. How else are we going to supply our fetus-b-q's?

Never mind, I was going to say something truly distasteful about Rick Santorum.

Republican policies haven't been tried, despite eight years of a Republican president and many more years of a Republican-majority Congress. What policies were they trying, then?

Boojum_Reborn February 2, 2012 at 12:06 pm

You're a woman.

See what I did there? Totally eviscerated your argument. Mmmmmm, viscera….

JustPixelz February 2, 2012 at 12:35 pm

EXACTLY! The Go-Pee'ers say they don't want to return to the failed policies of the past (meaning anything Obama did). But their own proposals are strictly Dubya Bush: lower taxes and less regulation. Which led to huge deficits and the worst economic downturn in the history of the universe (since the 1930s).

By the way: Before the Great Depression, the U.S. economy had frequent, severe recessions (so-called "panics"). Afterward, regulations stabilized the economy, creating longer periods of prosperity with inevitable downturns less severe and somewhat shorter. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_recessions_i

George Lucas? Jar-Jar? OK then!

orygoon February 2, 2012 at 12:02 pm

I have to leave for my p/t day job* in a half-hour or so, which leaves just enough time to perform three or four abortions, if I just tear myself away from my computer.

Which will it be?

orygoon February 2, 2012 at 12:05 pm

Said day jerb, amazingly enough, not being "aborting black babies".

HistoriCat February 2, 2012 at 12:34 pm

Aborting black babies is more of a calling really.

Biff February 2, 2012 at 1:58 pm

True, it's not something you undertake just for the money.

PsycWench February 2, 2012 at 12:02 pm

How will this affect Sarah Palin? At least one person is thinking that, you know.

Boojum_Reborn February 2, 2012 at 12:10 pm

Too late. She's already been born. Or hatched.

"Maybe we have good intentions too, but our policies haven’t been tried…"

Maybe you have good intentions, but your policies blow dead dogs, so fuck off. And I really don't believe that you have good intentions, either, for that matter.

yrbmegr February 2, 2012 at 1:27 pm

Newt and his handlers are very good at the Republican two-step. "Our policies haven't been tried." What are those policies? "Put people back to work. Don't give them a handout." Yes, but what are your POLICIES? They don't tell us their actual policies, because they would be arrested if they did. They just permute their policies into aspirational statements that nobody can refute. Of course, we should put people back to work. Everybody's individual policies allegedly do that. Republicans will never tell us their actual POLICIES, because nobody will vote for them.

philpjfry February 2, 2012 at 12:03 pm

Who is he trying to kid? Newt has no principals

So wait, the Democratic party is somehow oppressing black women by making sure that they're not forced to have unwanted children? Huh?

Barb February 2, 2012 at 12:12 pm

Shit, I just got the email from Christine. Victoria told me about it yesterday and this is the first I've heard from Christine. I am going to forward it to you. I felt guilty yesterday, thinking our dead baby bbq jokes caused this. Christine's baby is going to die.

Jeff said yesterday, "Soros's kids didn't die from the bbq jokes." I said, "no, but they will be redheads, which is the same thing" I got the dirtiest look from a woman who heard me say that.

I'm still going to make fetus bbq jokes. I have to stay true to my asshole self.

SorosBot February 2, 2012 at 12:15 pm

That is so sad. But no, your jokes don't hurt anyone, just bring laughter; there's no reason to feel guilty.

Barb February 2, 2012 at 12:18 pm

Thanks, I know and it is cool. I slipped into the chapel yesterday and I didn't know what to do there. I made Jeff stay outside and I just kinda wandered around and apologized to God for fetus bbq jokes. He didn't respond, which tells me that he thinks we should tell more.

SorosBot February 2, 2012 at 12:45 pm

Just do what you can to be there for her – that's a horrible situation.

HistoriCat February 2, 2012 at 12:35 pm

So sorry to hear that Barb – hugs to one and all.

Barb February 2, 2012 at 12:58 pm

Thanks Histori. I'm going to buy Chrissy a new car to try to cheer her up. She doesn't have the space in her backyard for a pony.

HistoriCat February 2, 2012 at 1:25 pm

That is because you are an awesome mom.

Gratuitous World February 2, 2012 at 12:05 pm

so the fetuses were the job creators?

Serolf_Divad February 2, 2012 at 12:06 pm

wait, I'm confused. If democrats are aborting black babies, how are they supposed to get them hooked on food stamps so they'll vote for them?

Generation[redacted] February 2, 2012 at 12:34 pm

It must work on the same principle that rock bands put subliminal messages in their music to make all their fans commit suicide.

spinozasgod February 2, 2012 at 1:10 pm

if democrats keep aborting black babies in order to somehow get the black vote then who will vote for democrats when there are no more blacks whose babies democrats need to abort in order to get the black vote??

Fare la Volpe February 2, 2012 at 1:14 pm

Second off, ever heard of Will Smith, the hero in every movie ever made? Psst, he's black and a role model to pasty white guys like me too.

BarackMyWorld February 2, 2012 at 12:57 pm

It is a really corny movie about the Tuskegee pilots in WWII with bad acting and great special effects (i.e. a typical George Lucas production).

yrbmegr February 2, 2012 at 1:32 pm

My goodness. The list of role models who are black is very long, and includes luminaries such as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Nelson Mandela, Barbara Jordan, um, um, um. Oh, yeah!! Barack Obama, Rosa Parks…. I don't have time to list ALL of them. But, goodness!

I get confused. Are we Democrats aborting black babies or promoting policies that foster breeding scores of browns to overwhelm the comfort of whiteys? It is one or the other, right?

It's both, actually; we breed them to feed our demonic Abortion Machine, but too many slip through the cracks.

It doesn't have to be one or the other. See: Ayn Rand/Christianity thread.

I am thinking that forcing a 14 year old girl to carry her child to term and then drop out of school to raise and support is not going to "lift them out of poverty."

A Patch of Blue?

When we were kids, there was a very old family friend who was blind–and racist, as was the fashion of the times (my family was adamantly not racist, BTW). One night, we were watching 'A Patch of Blue' on late night TV and the scene where Poitier kisses the heroine had just ended, and out of the blue comes a telephone call from the blind racist. She had been watching/listening to the same movie and called up outraged and wondering if he had just kissed the white woman. My mom told her no so as to avoid Blind Racist's rant. It became a family joke that exists to this day.

These assholes need to get their poisonous bullshit ducks in a row. Don't they believe black children are anchor babies for the welfare system? You can't tell me they wouldn't love to get rid of them. I guess forced sterilization is the one option that fits their "moral code", so do not be surprised to hear that from Newt or Santorum or a spokesman in the next month, I mean week, I mean day, I mean hour.

Generation[redacted] February 2, 2012 at 12:30 pm

According to my Republican friends on facebook, they still are, it's only the races that have switched, somehow. Now the only racism that exists is against white peoples (wah people?). Maybe there was an unnoticed, massive migration where all the racist Democrats moved from north to south, and all the Republican civil rights workers moved south to north, or was it the other way around in reverse? Oh, and did you know the first black Congressmen were Republicans from South Carolina, thus cementing South Carolina's reputation as a bulwark of civil rights? Have you heard that the KKK were democrats, and by logical extension, still are? I have!

Chichikovovich February 2, 2012 at 12:29 pm

Maybe we have good intentions too, but our policies haven’t been tried

Following up on Psych Wench's remark above, let's compute. LBJ used considerable muscle to pass indispensible Civil Rights legislation, against furious opposition from Republicans (and Southern Democrats too, to be sure, though most of them soon became Republicans) including opposition from the Presidential candidate they ran against LBJ. I'm sure even Gingrich's hack would grant that those civil rights bills were good for African Americans. So let's start the clock with the end of LBJ.

There have been Republican presidents for 28 of the last 43 years. And since Gingrich is lumbering around claiming that anything that happened under Clinton was really due to him, it's effectively 36 of the last 43 years, for the purposes of conversations with Gingrich hacks. During many of those 36 years the Republicans controlled both the House and the Senate as well.

If the Republicans wanted to implement their "solutions", they could have. They didn't. So apparently they really are hostile or at least indifferent to African Americans.

BarackMyWorld February 2, 2012 at 12:54 pm

Many northern Republicans supported the Civil Rights legislation, including Senate Republican Leader Everett Dirksen. Opposition was by region, not by party.

imissopus February 2, 2012 at 1:02 pm

Yeah, it's interesting that these guys never seem to recognize that the GOP once counted actual social liberals among its members. Everett Dirksen today probably couldn't get past security at the GOP convention.

Chichikovovich February 2, 2012 at 1:15 pm

I didn't say that all Republicans opposed it, only that many did, and the Republicans as a party chose a presidential candidate who opposed it. And that many of the southern Democrats who did oppose it migrated to the Republican party. And I might have added: (I may be wrong about this one, but if so I expect the counterexamples are rare) none of the Republicans who opposed it found their way to the Democratic party.

Also, this doofus should go watch the interview Lucas did on the Daily Show a couple of weeks ago, in which he said it took him 23 years to get this movie made because no one in Hollywood wanted to finance it. Not because the studios are filled with racist swill, but because no one thought a film with an all-black cast and this subject matter could make any money (free market!) Lucas eventually put nearly $60 million of his own money up to get it made. But this guy wants credit because the Gingrich campaign hosted a screening?

Sigh. Just sticking to non-fiction (typically "Hollywoodized, of course): Vivien Thomas in What the Lord Made, Herman Boone in Remember the Titans, the starting five for Texas Western that beat Adoph Rupp's Kentucky in Glory Road, Jackie Robinson in The Jackie Robinson Story and many others, Larry Dobie in Pride Against Prejudice, Thurgood Marshall in Thurgood, various movies and documentaries depicting Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks and Adam Clayton Powell, Carl Brashear, as Baldar T. pointed out above…..

That's what i get after thirty seconds of reflection. Everyone watching that Deputy Salamander on TV has seen or at least heard of many if not all of those. But it doesn't matter. Just throw it out there.

Now it's one thing to make claims about the civil rights movement, when you know the people in the audience you're really trying to reach have less historical knowledge than a sack of turnips. But this is about Hollywood movies – anybody with a knowledge of popular culture in this country can come up with dozens of counter-examples immediately. Doesn't matter.

This is not the "big lie" technique, though it shares elements of it. It's the relentless tsunami of small lies. Told not only with complete disregard for the truth, but even complete indifference to whether or not the lie is obviously false and seen to be after even an instant's thought. Each one so preposterous and obviously false that you don't know where to start. By the time you've pointed out that one is evidently false, ten more are on the table.

It's discouraging, exhausting and occasionally frightening how well this works among the 27% – ers.

I saw the entire thing go down when it happened. To say that "they" don't have role models when the fucking president of the United States is black was just on its face offensive. He couldn't even bring himself to acknowledge the president.

I'd seen the guy on television, before that. As a major Gingrich surrogate, he'd been paraded around, but he didn't release the full crazy until that night.

If they — the Republican Party — considers this "outreach" to minority communities, I say to them to keep their damned, dirty paws away from us. Why don't you just turn around and re-embrace, completely, your sweet, ever-present whore-mistress: Racism.

outragedcitizen February 3, 2012 at 10:06 am
