Nazi Hunter of the Day: Newt Gingrich

This image by guest artist Newt Gingrich, revealing Mitt Romney’s anti-Jewish-senior past. Newt Gingrich reaches new lows in the Florida-race-to-the-bottom-primary almost by the minute. In yesterday’s Washington Post

we saw the signs of a right-wing lunatic fringe gone mainstream in which a Gingrich campaign stop had the feeling of a hate group rally. Today there is the robo call to elderly Jews telling them that Romney once voted against a meals bill which would have forced seniors to forgo kosher food (not true).

As governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney vetoed a bill paying for kosher food for our seniors in nursing homes. Holocaust survivors, who for the first time, were forced to eat non-kosher, because Romney thought $5 was too much to pay for our grandparents to eat kosher. Where is Mitt Romney’s compassion for our seniors? Tuesday you can end Mitt Romney’s hypocrisy on religious freedom, with a vote for Newt Gingrich. Paid for by Newt 2012.

In a flash, for the votes of some old people Newt has become the tribune of compassion. Forget that, given half the chance, all meals for all needy people would be thrown into the Intracoastal waterway along with Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and whatever is left. As a piece of carrot atop this gefilte fish, Newt’s text refers to “our grandmothers”. Newt Ginsberg! Who knew?? . And adding the phrase “holocaust survivor” elevates the cause, casting Mitt Romney as the perfect symbol of all that is evil. As opposed to Newt.
