Newt: We Are Losing The War With Radical Islamists

Newt Gingrich

Last weekend our friends Iowa principled limited government constitutional conservative Congressman Steve King and Citizens United hosted thee Iowa Freedom Summit. While the establishment media focused on the prospects of various potential Republican presidential candidates in the Iowa Caucuses, the first vote of the 2016 presidential primary season, one of the most important talks at the Freedom Summit was given by someone who as far as we know has no plans to run for President again – Newt Gingrich.

The former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives devoted his entire remarks at the Freedom Summit to issuing a clarion call for Americans to battle radical Islam and asking Iowans to demand accountability from presidential candidates on the issue.

Gingrich pulled no punches and compared the threat posed by militant Islam to the threat the world faced from the Nazis before World War II and by the former Soviet Union after the war.

"Almost 14 years after 9/11, the United States of America is losing the war with radical Islam and we need to have the courage to confront how badly we are losing this war," Gingrich said according to reporting by William Petroski of the Des Moines Register.

Americans need to know that Islamic militants are prepared to cut off the heads of Americans if they do not convert to Islam, he emphasized several times.

Unfortunately, President Barack Obama appears to have a "speech impediment" that prevents him from saying the words "radical Islam," Gingrich said.

"You are not going to win this war if you can't tell the truth. You can't win if you don't call it a war," Gingrich said according to Petroski.

The former Speaker said he has no problems with Muslims willing to live in peace. But when militants declare they will kill people who do not convert to their religion, Americans should be willing to kill them first, said Gingrich.

"This is a campaign that should be fought with the largest number of allies, that should be fought wherever possible by surgically and methodically hunting down people," he said.

In somewhat the same vein of Ted Cruz’s remarks that Republican presidential candidates who campaign in Iowa should have to prove their conservative bona fides,  Gingrich said every presidential candidate who comes to Iowa should be asked what they are prepared to do to defeat radical Islam. If that happens, each candidate will develop a good answer in response, Petroski reported. In that way explained Gingrich, Iowans can play a decisive role in the process.

Newt Gingrich is definitely on to something with his admonition that the Republican voters of Iowa should demand answers, and commitments, about how they will fight the war radical Islam declared on us from the GOP presidential contenders.

Much like Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal’s truth-telling on the threat of unassimilated Muslim colonization zones, Newt’s most important contribution on the subject may have been his willingness to tell the truth and to give an honest assessment of the state of the war with radical Islam.

"Almost 14 years after 9/11, the United States of America is losing the war with radical Islam and we need to have the courage to confront how badly we are losing this war," is something practically no one else in national politics, in or out of office, is willing to say. But it is something that needs to be said, especially as America tries to fight, and win, a war under a commander-in-chief who refuses to even name the enemy, let alone pursue victory.

Every American that foolishly thinks or believes that there are good possibilities in discerning between extremist and moderate Muslims delude themselves. The traveler Marco Polo wrote: "The Militant Muslim is the one that beheads the infidel, while the moderate Muslim holds his feet". Wake up before it is too late and you have a Blade to your necks.
