Newt Gingrich is at it again with his inflammatory rhetoric. According to Politico, the former House Speaker “compared the mosque planned to go up blocks away from ground zero in New York to Nazis protesting next to the Holocaust museum.” Gingrich, who called the mosque leaders “radical Islamists,” said, “Nazis don’t have the right to put up a sign next to the Holocaust museum in Washington.”
This is not the first time Gingrich has invoked Holocaust rhetoric. In his newest book, he equates liberals with Nazis.
The National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC), which has been tracking the use of abusive Holocaust rhetoric, strongly condemns Gingrich’s latest remarks and firmly believes this type of language has no place in our political discourse.
