Newt Called on the Carpet

Newt Gingrich has publicly opposed the impending disaster of Card Check, which would allow Comrade Obama’s union cronies to do to every business in America what they did to the auto industry. Yet he endorses outlandishly left-wing New York RINO Dede Scozzafava, who in turn supports Card Check. The National Right to Work Committee isn’t taking his duplicity lying down:

In a letter to former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, National Right to Work Committee President Mark Mix has asked the semi-retired politician to rescind his endorsement of New York Assemblywoman Dede Scozzafava, the liberal Republican nominee in the special election for New York’s 23rd Congressional District.

Support for Scozzafava has faded after grassroots citizens learned of her public support for the job-killing Card Check Forced Unionism Bill (H.1409), but Gingrich threw his weight behind her after organizing a petition and raising money to defeat passage of the toxic legislation she supports.

Passage of “Card Check” would mean workers would no longer be able to vote for or against union boss “representation” through a secret ballot election. Instead, the union bosses would be able to accost and intimidate workers one by one into signing so-called “union authorization cards.” If a majority of workers sign these cards, union officials could impose monopoly bargaining, forcing all workers, even those who wish to have no part of the union, to accept union representation. …

Recent polls have shown that 75% of Americans are opposed to legislation that strips workers of the right to a secret ballot in union elections.

Newt needs some help reading the tea leaves if he thinks conservatives will continue dutifully supporting the liberal establishment Republicans who managed to lose both Congress and the White House to a gang of left-wing radicals.

Now if someone would just call him out for pretending to support capitalism while shilling for the socialist Trojan horse known as the global warming hoax…

If Newt hasn’t gone politically deaf, he must have his finger in his ear.
