Newt Gingrich: America’s Future Depends on Outcome of Georgia’s Senate Races
America’s future depends on the outcomes of the elections for the U.S. Senate in Georgia, said former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich (R-GA) on Monday, offering his remarks on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow.
“A lot of people in the audience are discouraged,” Marlow stated. “I don’t think it’s the majority, by any means, but there’s certainly a number of people who’ve been pretty vocal that they’re discouraged. They think the election process — if it’s not going to be legitimate — then there’s no point in voting and they don’t want to vote. They’re going protest in Georgia by not voting. I would like to hope it’s a small number of people, but a small number of people could swing the whole election. Do you have a message for those people?”
Gingrich urged Georgians to vote and volunteer as poll watchers.
Gingrich continued with this advice, “My message is very simple. The future of the United States depends on the outcome of the Georgia Senate races. If you don’t want a radical left-wing America dominated by left-wing judges with massive tax increases, with a policy, frankly, of appeasing China, and you don’t want that kind of future, you have to go out and vote. And then frankly, you have to volunteer as a poll watcher and make sure they don’t steal the election. But I think these things are vital and I don’t think we should in any way underestimate how really important the Georgia Senate race.”
Gingrich contrasted 1824’s presidential election with 2020’s.
“In 1824, Andrew Jackson had At 40 percent of the popular vote, but the guys who came in number two and three combined in the House of Representatives of John Quincy Adams and Henry Clay decided that even though Jackson got the most votes, he wouldn’t be president,” Gingrich explained. “So Jackson spent the next four years attacking them for representing a corrupt establishment and decisively beat Adams in 1828, and really the caused a dramatic uprising against the old order because people were just sick of it.
Gingrich warned Democrats focus on election mechanics while Republicans focus on political campaigning. He highlighted get-out-the-vote efforts funded by Mark Zuckerberg and other left-wing billionaires and Democrat-driven election law changes as examples of Democrats’ focus on electioneering.
“You have to think of two parallel projects,” determined Gingrich. “There is the campaign, which is what the Republicans focus on, and there is the election, which is what the Democrats focus on. If we don’t find a way to have an honest election, the campaign won’t matter, because we will be drowned in ballots that are illegally gathered [through] harvested ballots.”
Gingrich concluded, “These two Senate seats are the margin between containing Biden and empowering Biden.”
