Charlotte NC Deadly Rioting an “American Tragedy”
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich reacted to the deadly rioting in Charlotte Wednesday calling an “American tragedy,” adding that Hillary Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama take the “anti-police” side of the issues.
“I think this is an American tragedy, 53 years a after Martin Luther King’s speech I have a Dream,” Mr. Gingrich said in a TV interview. “Two consecutive African-American Attorney Generals. Race relations are decaying in this country.
“I don’t know what will happen in the next 50 or so days. One is the country at large will not tolerate this kind of random violence. People will not tolerate looting. They won’t tolerate closing I-85. They will not tolerate burning things.
“On the other hand, most Americans, I think, desperately would love to fix the challenge of the inner city and they know it’s not working.”
Later, in the interview Mr. Gingrich pointed to Hillary Clinton’s long history of anti-police statements and stances.
“When she was at Yale as a law student she was a co-editor of an anti-police, left-wing alternative newspaper that described police as pigs,” Mr. Gingrich said. “Her natural instincts is to take the side of the people who are against the police. Her first comments about this were anti-police.”
The Charlotte, NC riots are in response to a police shooting of an Black man Tuesday. Police officials say the man had a gun and refused orders to drop it.
Mr. Gingrich said he believes Republican Donald Trump may fare well in the inner cities of America in November.
“That’s why Donald Trump, I think, may do surprisingly well in the inner city because he is at least offering a chance to dramatically change things,” Mr. Gingrich said.
Wednesday, Donald Trump said he was very troubled by the police-involved shootings and bombings in New York City.
The Governor of North Carolina has declared a State of Emergency and called in the National Guard to quell the deadly rioting in Charlotte.
