Gingrich: There Is More ‘Outrage’ When Whites Assault Blacks

Newt Gingrich said Thursday that people get more upset about racially motivated violence by whites than they do when African-Americans commit hate crimes.

According to Breitbart News, the former speaker of the House of Representatives made the statement during an interview on the Fox News Channel’s “Fox and Friends.” He was responding to a video that had been posted on Facebook Live, in which four young black men could be seen assaulting a white man who reportedly was mentally ill.

“If this had been done to an African-American by four whites, every liberal in the country would be outraged and there would be no question it is a hate crime,” Gingrich said. “So, let’s be clear about this. We are right at the edge of a terrible period, which I know President-elect Donald Trump wants to avoid, of having the deep bitter division in the communities that makes America hard to govern.”

The ex-congressman from Georgia, a former contender for the Republican presidential nomination, is one of Trump’s most prominent supporters. He has served as a campaign surrogate and adviser to the president-elect. Gingrich was House speaker in the 1990s, during Bill Clinton’s administration. He is a favorite of the Tea Party and the GOP’s anti-establishment wing.
