Gingrich and the Language of the “Ghetto”
Posted by Jack Stephens on April 9, 2007
The author of the blog Richard is Retired has this to say about the Gingrich controversy:
Every immigrant group assimilates with very few exceptions and by the third generation knowledge of their grandparent’s language is in danger of disappearing entirely. Gingrich’s inflammatory language only provokes prejudice amongst those who dislike those who are dissimilar. Gingrich reaches back into American history and borrows the language of hate employed by the Nativists of the mid-19th century. He uses hate to gain political advantage.
